“The chance of gaining better rewards such as Gold Bar 100G, Gold Bar 1,000G, and gears (ranging from green-grade TRI gear to yellow- grade PEN gear), will nearly double. The number of Black Stones (Armor) gained from Stage 1 and the Caphras Stones gained from Stage 2 and above as a reward will nearly double. You will gain the Stage 10 rewards once more if you defeat the Ancient Kutum that appears intermittently in Stage 10. This means you will have a random chance to win Stage 10 rewards twice.”
Don’t expect a big patch on PC next week, mind you; apparently it’ll be a “hardware-only maintenance to secure service stability” patch accompanied by an event.
Over on the Xbox One side of the game, a new guild boss, Ahib Griffon, has arrived to wreck Kamasylvia. Pearl Abyss has also patched in a new wagon, new awakened bosses, the revamp of the Velia Wharf, and tweaks for items and mounts, pushing the game a bit closer to parity with its PC cousin.
The Xbox One version of the game is also running a promo that asks players to collect cookies and marshmallows, but don’t be fooled – those look delicious, but they’re not s’mores!
Stay tuned for our regular BDO column, Desert Oasis, this afternoon!
