|(※ We implemented the Synthesis System in order for players to depend less on RNG to acquire the item they want from a certain boss. With the new system, players will be able to make sure they acquire the item they need while not heavily depending on RNG.)|

|–One day, a Knight of Calamity appeared who wielded the power of Calamity at his will.
The Chase dispatched their members to investigate this issue but due to losing so many of their members, they decided to only allow Chasers with D Rank or higher in order to minimize casualties.
|–Blazing Blade of Calamity will not only depend on each individual Chaser’s abilities but also team work.
Knight of Calamity has a total of 4 phases and each phase has a time limit.

|(※ We have heard your complaints about the limitations of current party system and with the addition of the 6 Player PVE mission ‘Blazing Blade of Calamity’, we realized that it could be too difficult for randomly matched players to clear. This is why we decided to increase the current party size to 6. Also, with the addition of the guild system, we hope many guild members play together.)|
