“Changed the Season5 server to a dedicated Arsha server for season characters. Similar to the other season servers there will be a Combat and Skill EXP buff. However, there will be an additional Item Drop Rate +50%, like in the regular Arsha server. PvP between characters (including forced PvP) will be free from all penalties in this server. However, characters with negative karma will still receive penalties. World and field bosses will not appear in this server.”
Redditors have also pointed to the Serendia and Calpheon main quest reward revamp as being one that looks super boring in the notes but in fact constitutes a huge buff to leveling gear; this Naru gear can be enhanced easily and cheaply as new players ascend the ranks, effectively making catching up a much less daunting process.
