MMOHuts Default Image 604x339

Zentia’s next major patch, 1.3, is now live, and features major changes to the game.

The update includes a brand new character creation and selection interface, along with a new tutorial area on the Immortal plane and skill guides for characters under level 40. A new high level quest is also available, along with two new instances designed for players above level 60 and a new map, Serene Estuary, for players above level 70.

Several events have been improved to be easier, grant more experience, or offer new rewards, while many instances have been made easier through reduced difficulty, new quests, teleport sites, new equipment, and titles. Plenty of other fixes and tweaks are also going live to a number of game systems.

Zentia is published by ChangYou, which also publishes Dragon Oath and Blade Wars.
