    4/9 Bug Fixes/Known Issues

    Bug Fixes:

    Sound:

    • Abnormal sound output when entering/exiting dungeons and during mission failures has been fixed.

    Characters:

    • Luna’s Hydra Strike should no longer cause your character to freeze after using it sometimes.

    Event Dungeons:

    • The level requirement for the Dimensional Ops has been corrected for the April Fool’s event dungeon, characters level 40+ should now be able to access this hub.

    Dungeons:

    • Contamination Hell - 5th Floor, some of Nitocris’ skills have been modified slightly so they do not cause as many issues. Nitocris’ Thorn Jail skill should behave better now!

    • F5 and F6 keys have been fixed for Tiamat’s dungeon.

    Pet UI:

    • Selected pets should display the correct level when selected now.

    Known Issues:

    Characters:

    • The localization on J’s 90th level teamwork buff incorrectly reads that it adds +item find bonus.

    • Character skill descriptions may not reflect the new character balance changes stated in the patch notes, this will be addressed in a later localization patch.

    Dungeons:

    • Resurrection capsules currently have a 60 second count down timer, if you do not use the resurrection capsule within that period you will be kicked from the server. We will be fixing this issue in a upcoming client only hotfix.

    Bai Pre-Creation:

    • The pre-creation message that shows up after creating Bai has the incorrect release date for Bai, this should say April 23rd.

    Inventory:

    • Purchasing the new expanded inventory slots will deliver an invalid product to the EMP delivery box that doesn’t do anything, this will be fixed soon!

    Items:

    • The Ti-85 Pilot Mini Washing Machine is using the incorrect name at the moment, this will be fixed soon.

    Divine Battle:

    • A few banners and text strings related to Divine Battle are missing localization, these will be address in a localization patch soon!
