You’re So Dead Make a show of slitting your throat with your thumb.
Uh Huh Nod your head up and down.
Noway Shake your head while moving your arms.
 
7. Friend system will be added.
Friend System will be set for each character and not account wide. You can access the Friend System menu by pressing the G button.
– Friend List: Check Friend’s status, info, and invite to party
– Suggested Friend: Provide a list of players you played in the same mission, can request as friend
– Friend Request Box: Check received friend request and accept or decline the request.
You can also send a friend request directly in Eltheca by approaching them.
 
8. You can now enter the Training Grounds while in queue for missions and matches. You can also accept the queue from the Training Grounds.
 
9. Chat Bubbles are added.
 
10. Notification Window will be added in the System Menu.
You can check events and other useful information and you may click the ‘Do not show this again’ box. If you check the box, you may not see this feature again until you restart KurtzPel.
 
11. The visuals effects for gems on the Silver Wings Knight Weapons will be improved.
 
12. There will be additional changes to Capture the Flag mode.
– Every time you obtain the flag, you will obtain 1 point. The team that first obtains 3 points, or the team with the higher score when time runs out.
– The flag will disappear for a short duration when you obtain the flag.
– After 10 sec. the flag will appear in one of the locations set in the map. The location of the flag will be marked 10 sec. before it appears, and will appear after the 10 sec. countdown.
– The game will be extended if the game is tied when time runs out.
– Flag Obtain Gauge (Time) will be affected by global time stop (when using Rage Skill).
In previous version of Capture the Flag, the battle to obtain the flag may have been fierce and competitive, but the playstyle after the flag was obtained was very slow, which was not the direction the Dev team intended.
In order to keep Capture the Flag more exciting, we have changed the scoring format from ‘Keep the Flag’ → ‘Obtain the Flag’.
As such, there will no longer be need for teams to protect the flag bearer but instead the point of the combat will be to cap the flag in a dynamic environment that will constantly be switching with each flag captures.
 
13. Diabolic Witch’s ‘Ice Wall’ skill’s duration will decrease by 20% (Approx. 1.1 sec).
 
14. Diabolic Witch’s ‘Meteor’ skill’s hit duration will decrease by 30% (Approx. 0.8 sec). However, each hit’s damage will increase to keep the same overall damage.
 
15. Thailand and Japan localization will be added.
 
16. A new ‘Auto Graphic Setting’ option has been added. This option will be enabled as default.
  – This option will activate at the start of each mission (PVP & PVE). Based on the player’s graphic settings, if the FPS doesn’t reach 40 FPS within a certain duration, the graphic quality will be lowered until it reaches a stable frame rate.
– This will not affect Player Graphic Settings. Once the mission is complete, the graphic settings will return to normal.
– This function will not activate in Eltheca as it’s a function to help with smooth gameplay.
– You can go into Settings > Screen/Graphics > High Setting to disable this option.
   
17. Sword Taliah’s Storm Slash Skill effects are adjusted.
  – Storm Slash’s skill effects were smaller than its actual range and we have corrected the skill effects to correctly display the skill’s attack range.
   
18. Diabolic Witch’s Lightning Skill is adjusted.
  – Lightning’s Skill was occurring slower than expected and also lasted longer than expected.
– Lightning’s Skill will now hit 0.1 sec. faster to match the skill effect and the duration will last 0.1 sec. less.
– This change is to improve the players being attacked by Lightning even though they weren’t hit by the skill effect.
   
19. Affinity Management System is added.
  – Affinity Management function will allow you to select which NPCs you will want to increase affinity with.
– Only NPCs that are registered from the Affinity Management window will be trackable from Ensher.
– This will also allow the NPCs to appear randomly.
– This system is enabled when you have 7 or more NPCs that are Affinity Lv.1 or higher.
– You can check this function from Game Menu(R) – Player Info – Affinity Info – Press R.
– You can register up to 6 NPCs on the Affinity Management window and you can swap out different NPCs depending on your preference.
– You must have exactly 6 NPCs registered on the Affinity Manager, it cannot be less or more.
Tip: For those of you planning to acquire Dual Soul, please note that if you already have 6 NPCs that are all Lv.1 or higher Affinity, you will need to remove an NPC after acquiring Kien’s Affinity after the 3rd Mission.
Once you complete this task, you will be able to track Kien from Ensher.

7. There will be change in Item Price.
– Since Steam Prices are set with additional tax included, we will be removing the tax rates from the items for certain countries without additional tax to lower the overall item price for these countries.
– The current pricing for all countries will be changed to meet the USD average exchange rate for the last 3 months. This may increase or decrease the prices of items in your region.
– Also, we will be changing the prices every 3 months to meet the average USD exchange for the prior 3 months.
– While the prices may vary due to the exchange rate, we believe this will make all regions experience similar pricing.
