    Patch 81: Illusions of Perdition

    Patch 81 will be released on the servers on 29th April and introduces a new dungeon and the powerful new partners. Please note that some of the names used here may be subject to change.

    Parquina’s Nest

    From level 66, it will be your mission to explore lair of the giant moth in Parquina’s Nest. First of all you’ll be tested by her colossal minion Ferva. This powerful foe can make the very ground shake with its powerful blows.

    Beat this gatekeeper and you can progress deeper into the nest, where you’ll need to outwit the laser security system Parquina uses to protect her egg. Make it through this section and you can confront Queen Parquina herself. She’ll use everything at her disposal to protect her brood, including sinister illusions and a deathly stare. Defeat the queen, destroy her egg and scoop up some amazing rewards!

    Cute Power Bundles

    Take advantage of the new partner system to get some powerful companions for your adventures. The cute partners can be learned and summoned like pets and grant you active and passive buffs. The greater your connection to your partner, the better the bonuses.

    Using the new system you can also transfer pet skills such as auto-gather or the pet pocket from an existing pet onto a partner. Pets can also be leveled up and transformed into partners by giving them items to eat. Or you can fuse two pets together to get a random new pet or partner. Explore the versatile system and find your own way to make a powerful new ally from your companion!

    Costume Extraction

    From patch 81 you’ll be able to transform old costumes, weapon skins and decorative items into tokens which can be exchanged for mysterious chests. These chests contain a random item from the respective category – including exclusive costumes not available anywhere else.
