Patch Notes - December 5, 2018 Archer Update
The Archer update has arrived!
- A new character arrives in Kritika Online: The Archer! The Archer’s skills function similarly to the Psion’s. The Archer’s skill abilities change based on her skill level.
-- We're still working out some issues with Archer events and the starting leveling curve (damage is currently set too low for the first few levels). We will have fixes for these items in place for the full release!
- Added a free character slot.
- New Difficulty—Eeri’s Library, Dusk Pirate Den, Eternal Library, and Secret Warehouse all have a new, easier “Hard” difficulty. Each zone has a chance to drop a new Challenger accessory.
- Three new Challenger Zones have appeared!
- Noxious Rainforest
- Perumagion Spellfurnace
- Burning Highland
- Increased the drop rate of Ghostly Scales from Shattered Table.
- The Ultimate Zones for Xanadu are now located in an “Ultimate Zone” tab within the Danger Zone Highway.
- Updated the Daily Zone rewards.
- Players can acquire a Daily Zone Coin for each run (two times per day). Additionally, several rewards are updated for different Danger Zones. Get the full details below.
-- Monday reward: Unchanged.
-- Tuesday reward: Increased to 220 Reappraisal Scrolls.
-- Wednesday reward: Your choice of up to 6 resurrection stones or 30 Blessed Elixir I.
-- Thursday reward: Increased to 220 Recalculation Scrolls.
-- Friday reward: Increased to 30 Inferior Kagerfeld Badges.
-- Saturday, and Sunday: Unchanged.
- Trade Daily Coins to Alandra for 250 Fixit Hammers.
- Memory Shards can now drop in Fractured Memories above level 200.
- Etherforce Crystals drop in Fractured Memories at level 80 and above. The drop rate increases every 20 levels.
- Two new kinds of accessories are introduced in this update: Memorial and Challenger.
- Memorial accessories are acquired from Lilis with Memory Shards. They are base tier 13 and cursed, so they need to undergo purification (evolution). Through the evolution process, they will become tier 14 accessories, which can be evolved once more.
- Challenger accessories are acquired from new Challenger Zones, or from evolution of Evo1 Antique accessory. They are base tier 14 and can be evolved once more.
- The Daylight Helioflare weapon has been rebalanced. The Human and Fey damage bonus from the Evo1 Daylight weapon has been added to increase its power.
After end of the quest “[Skyship Arcadia: East Deck] Suppression,” and at level 65, all main quest lines are rearranged. We have been monitoring player advancement after hitting level 65 and found multiple opportunities to improve the gameplay flow. We have changed all quest lines after level 65 to be smoother and more focused. All characters are eligible for a reward at level 70.
Now players will play the main quest line in this succession: Starhenge -> Xanadu side stories -> Abe/Titan story quest (not an Ultimate zone) -> Windhome. And following the quest line, suitable quest rewards will be bestowed to raise character CR more smoothly. If you’ve already completed these quests, try them again and get the new rewards!
Additionally, we added weekly quests for Ultimate zones. This should create good synergy with Hard difficulty Ultimate Zones.
