Patch 11.9: Mounts, JUMP Revamp, Improvements, and more! By Nitex, in Articles, January 20, 0 comments, 1,818 views Event / Update Information Weekend Events 3X EXP/3X Drop has been activated for the weekend. 4X EXP/3X Drop will be activated on January 22 for 24 hours to celebrate Lunar New Year. For Zuto Battle, Draco DKS, and other events please view the Event Calendar here. Update Schedule We are expecting to release another update on Sunday, January 22nd. Downtime will be < 30 minutes and 4X will be extended during this time. New Player Experience + Rising JUMP Event Updated Lv 210 JUMP Achievement Package The level 210 achievement package that includes several accessories to help get started with game PvP related aspects. This is because many newcomers are very eager to participate in DK Square, Draco Battle, and Zuto Battle but may still need time to obtain gear. New Characters and Existing Characters New characters will automatically be rewarded with a Lv 210 JUMP package when they reach level 210. Existing characters can get the Lv 210 JUMP package from Rising Helion NPC for 100 Seed of Dreams. Items Included: Starter Zuto Weapon Box +8 Starter White Candy Earring Starter Devil's Horn Starter Fallen Sailors Ring Starter Pure Moon Star Earrings Note: These items are NOT upgradable and can not be used in the crafting system. Starter versions are not as powerful as normal versions but help with survivability. Starter Zuto Weapons: Starter Zuto Weapons are +8 versions of Zuto Weapons with hardcoded options. The starter versions have the new increased minimum stats in the range (so every normal Zuto weapon will have better rank options). These weapons give players who have not had an opportunity to obtain Zuto Weapons a chance to participate in competitive game modes. Normal + Rare Pets Updated ALL Normal + Rare pets will give 4% PvP DMG Res. Previously only Unique pets gave stats. 4% is still less than Unique pets, but this allows even new players to benefit from pets. Dragonic Perpetus Updates Dragon Horn Added 15% drop rate to Binaelle Fairy for Dragon Horn (in addition to Inner Ugliness). This should guarantee a dragon horn drop in around 5-10 runs. Infinite Essence / Eternal Essence Exchange Improvement This is primarily a quality of life improvement since previously you couldn't mix and match binded/unbinded Z Coins. This fixes that issue as both binded/unbinded can be combined and exchanged for Essence Piece. New item added: Essence Piece 20 Z Coin = 1 Essence Piece (Rising Helion) --- Works with both Binded/Unbinded Z Coins Eternal Essence / Infinite Essence No longer requires unbinded Z Coins, instead uses Essence Piece Mount Revamp: Mounts for Everyone! Mount Levels All mounts going forward will be max level (6) going forward and mounts will not need to upgraded or leveled from 1-6. Mount Variations and Stats All mounts after this update will have a predefined 1 of 4 predefined variations. This is is so that everyone has the same opportunity to have any advantages given by mounts. PvE Type 1 All Stats: 100, EXP: 100%, Movement Speed: 5% PvE Type 2 All Stats: 70, Max HP: 10%, PVE Resistance: 5% PvP Type 1 All Stats 70, Vitality: 120, PVP DMG Bonus: 5% PvP Type 2 All Stats 70, Vitality: 120, PVP Resistance: 3% Mount Cosmetics Mounts have been divided into different style (cosmetic) categories. Style 1, Style 2, Style 3, and Style 4 Remember -- these are only cosmetic differences since all mounts have the same stat variations! Mount Style Boxes Obtaining Mount Boxes Mount Boxes can be obtained from both Rising Helion (Exchange) NPC and D-Shop. All mounts have the same stat variations -- the only difference is the visuals. Rising Helion Exchange NPC Mount Randombox Style 1 added to Rising Helion Mount Randombox Style 2 added to Rising Helion D-Shop Mount Randombox Style 1 added to Rising Helion Mount Randombox Style 2 added to Rising Helion Mount Randombox Style 3 added to Rising Helion Mount Randombox Style 4 added to Rising Helion Opening Mount Boxes When a mount style box is opened you will receive one of the mount select boxes.
