Bless Online’s 4th of July patch offers content for PvE and PvP players

    
11

It’s a big week for Bless Online, as Neowiz is prepping an update due to hit right smack in the middle of the 4th of July holiday here in the States. The good news for folks whose primary beef with the game is content-related is that the update injects the endgame with a much-needed dose of stuff to do.

PvE players will find a helping of daily quests. “Royal Quests are a new daily quest series that will be available to characters starting at level 45,” Neowiz says. “Players will be able to find an accept these quests in multiple locations around the world; they will be marked by purple quest icons on the world map. Players will be able to complete a total of 15 Royal Quests per day to get the most rewards possible.”

If your interests are more aligned with violent delights, however, you’re going to want to check out PvP-oriented Basel Gorge, which Neowiz characterizes as “the highly contested centerpoint of the conflict between the Union and Hieron factions.”

“While in Basel Gorge, players are able to gain more Combat Points from engaging in PvP than they would in other open world zones by controlling neutral bases. Gaining control of a neutral base will grant all members of that faction currently in Basel Gorge a ‘Gorge Occupier’ buff. This buff can stack up to three times, once for each neutral base in the area. Each stacked buff grants a 7% increase in movement speed and increases the amount of Combat Points gained from killing another player by 50%, making faction PvP within Basel Gorge extra rewarding. However, keep a close eye on the bases! Once a base is captured, it will only belong to that faction for twenty minutes before it reverts to neutral and can be contested by the opposing faction once again.”

Check out the whole dev blog on the patch on Steam, then get ready to play on Wednesday. If you’re bored as you wait, check out our recent hands-on with the game as well as this morning’s interview with Neowiz.

PvE content… did any PvE players actually stick around with that nonsense very short duration protection potion thing? I’ma gonna guess not!

Nope, didn’t make it as far as having that matter. Haven’t gotten around to uninstalling it but SSD storage is still relatively cheap.

Are they actually fixing any bugs, or just pushing out new content?

Patching in old content that they deactivated so that the game would have “Regular content updates”

So glad I got my refund from this dumpster fire.

I just took a peek at the reddit for this game and it seems like on top of only having 5k players left there is blatant hacking going on as guilds say F it and fly around.

I thought the blatant hacking may be an exaggeration, but no. Go on the reddit and you’ll see videos of people literally flying around while PvPing others.

Good thing you can turn pvp off for a limited amount of time using that cash shop potion. /s

This same thing happened in RU. They couldnt patch it among other bugs. Hence n day 70 it was shipped back to Korea and everyone got a refund. Years later all same bugs.
