|Added new Imperial Cuisine and Imperial Alchemy boxes for Imperial Crafting Delivery.
Imperial Crafting Delivery is a content we hoped would guarantee you a certain profit for cooking or performing alchemy. If the price of your cooking or alchemy product is too low on the Central Market, or if there is already too much of the same product there you could always turn to Imperial Crafting Delivery to make some profit. This is because the amount of Silver you get for each Imperial Cuisine or Imperial Alchemy box is fixed.
However, due to the limited type of items that could be sold through Imperial Crafting Delivery there has been an imbalance in the price and availability of certain items. The food and elixirs unavailable for Imperial Crafting Delivery tend to be overlooked while the items that are available for Imperial Crafting Delivery tend to be high in demand, which drives up market prices.
We wanted to improve the existing system, and we tried to do it in two ways.
Firstly, we wanted simplification and inclusivity. Except for a few items, almost all food and elixirs are now available for Imperial Crafting Delivery. Instead of each food item having its own box, the boxes are now just simply divided by life skill level you need to make the item.
For example, when you use Imperial Cuisine to pack Beer you will get an Apprentice’s Cooking Box but if you pack Grain soup you will also get an Apprentice’s Cooking Box. For just the Apprentice’s Cooking Box alone, you can choose from a list of 16 foods to cook. You can even pack higher-grade versions of food and elixirs for Imperial Crafting Delivery.
Since we greatly decreased the types of Imperial Crafting Delivery boxes, if you make the boxes in bulk they should take up less slots in your storage or inventory.
Despite these changes, depending on which box you want to make, the number and cost of the ingredients may vary. Therefore to maximize profit, you can check the prices on the Central Market before deciding on which box to make, or make the box for which you already own much of the ingredients needed to make it.
Secondly, we wanted to add more rewards. Though the main goal of Imperial Crafting Delivery is earning Silver, we wanted to add some rewards for each time you turn in a box. This is because making Imperial Crafting Delivery boxes uses up a lot of materials, which may leave your storage depleted.
Now, you will get a different type of “Delivery Gift Box” for each type of box you hand into an Imperial Crafting Delivery NPC. From the Delivery Gift Box, you will get one type of item useful for cooking or alchemy, at random. We hope that this will help you make your next Imperial Crafting Delivery box more easily.
- The damage from horses will now also be included in the AP restriction for Tier 1 Node Wars.
- This restriction only applies to damage to another adventurer from horse skills and mounted combat skills.
- This restriction does not apply to damage to cannons, barricades, and wooden fences from horse skills and mounted combat skills.
- Removed extraneous items from which you could gather from (i.e. fish nets) from the Longleaf Tree Sentry Post.
- Reworked the design of the Mount Information window.
- Added information about extra damage against ships and PVP damage to the item descriptions of ship cannons.
- Added information about mount skill effects and resource (e.g. Stamina) consumption to the Mount Information window, for all mount skills.
- The information was added to the mouseover tooltip of each mount skill’s icon.
- Reworked the camera perspective and effects for when certain ships move and use skills.
- Your camera perspective when you are sailing on an Epheria Carrack should now be broader.
- Changed the camera perspective and effects for the skills BreezySail, Ram, and PowerAccel. when they are used by the following ships to hopefully be more immersive: Epheria Cog; Epheria Sailboat; Improved Epheria Sailboat; Epheria Frigate; Improved Epheria Frigate; Epheria Caravel; Epheria Galleass; Epheria Carrack.
- Improved way fights are displayed for Battle Arena and Arena of Arsha, so character movements look more natural.We made this change in hopes that it will help alleviate the desync issues at Battle Arena and Arena of Arsha, so you can experience a smoother gaming experience there. We will work to keep providing updates to help improve your gaming experience.
- Fixed the buff effects of the following skills. These are the same skills for which buff effects were disabled during a previous patch because Shai’s DP was being applied abnormally when using these skills.

- You can now put [Guild] Breezy Crystal and [Guild] Origin of Wind in the inventory of your guild’s Galley.
- Added a set effect for equipping Loggia, Geranoa, or Manos life skill accessories.We developed life skill mastery accessories so adventurers with lower life skill level could improve their life skills faster, while adventurers with higher life skill levels could also benefit since the items improved their life mastery. Since these accessoires are not restricted to specific life skills they had a buff to increase Life EXP gain, which applies to all life skills.
This update adds an additional Life EXP gain buff if you equip life skill accessories of the same set. We hope that will help you improve your life skills even faster than before. This set effect is not affected by the enhancement level of your life skill mastery accessories. However, because the set effect takes into affect even when you only have two accessories from a set, we hope that these new set effects are accessible to all sorts of adventurers, new and seasoned.
- Life EXP Gain +2% for every two Loggia accessories
