Game play will become more dynamic and will involve a new level of skill. Specialize into new skill sets, dependent on the job and the character’s level. A player’s job title will change as they complete their job advancement tasks.

Another new feature is the trade and triangular conflict system, which has been revamped where players trade and complete smuggling quests. Launch into evolved conflicts between Thieves and Hunters, where users can obtain unique Job Items through Job activities and trading towards additional materials that can craft or reinforce Job items.

What trading quests are available will depend on the job players pursue.
Other updates include a new avatar, Saint Knight, and a newly designed Craft System, where users can create a variety of craftable items, including Siege Items like Battering rams and Catapults designed for Fortress War, or dive into Trade and Alchemy Items’, including improvements to the Fortress War and User Interface for more exciting and convenient game play.
