[Content]

  • A new world boss Mirumok Destroyer Offin has been added.
    • Mirumok Destroyer Offin will appear in all servers except for Olvia growth and PvP Servers.
      • Times:
        • NA: Friday 03:00 UTC / 20:00 PDT
        • EU: Friday 21:00 UTC / 23:00 CEST
    • A world message will be shown notifying the appearance of Mirumok Destroyer Offin and the actual boss will come out 30 minutes after the message.
    • After the world message of the appearance of Mirumok Destroyer Offin is displayed, it is not possible to interact with Offin using the Ancient Contract: Mirumok Watcher.
    • World Boss Mirumok Destroyer Offin is much stronger than Guild Boss Mirumok Destroyer Offin.
    • In the occasion that you are in the middle of a Guild raid against Guild Boss Mirumok Destroyer Offin when the world message appears, a time attack mode will start where the Guild Boss would disappear if you failed to defeat it within 15 minutes.
    • Please keep in mind that it would be ideal that you summon the Guild Boss Mirumok Destroyer Offin much before the spawn time of World Boss Mirumok Destroyer Offin so that you do not need to deal with the 15 minute time attack.
    • Attacking Root of Offin and the protective shield covering Offin Tett (Offin’s Force Shield) is the most effective way to engage in battle with this world boss.
    • The attack range of Watcher Offin Tett’s motion of shooting out massive energy ball will be marked.
    • If failed in defeating the World Boss in 15 minutes after they are spawned, a message “Offin has completely absorbed the spirit’s energy and has become stronger.” will appear, and they will go berserk mode where their attack power will increase dramatically.
    • Note that if Offin’s Force Shield is destroyed, the energy that Offin had absorbed will be dispersed so they cannot go into berserk mode. If they are already enraged when the Shield is destroyed, they will go back to their non-berserk mode.
    • The top 30 adventurers who contributed the most in destroying the Root of Offin will, in addition to the loots you can get for destroying Offin, get a chance to obtain Offin’s Tendril or Offin Tett’s Light Fragment.
    • The protective shield that guards Offin Tett can only be damaged with a Hunting Matchlock. Top 30 adventurers who contributed the most in destroying the protective shield will, in addition to the loots you can get for destroying Offin, get a chance to obtain Forest Fury or Offin Tett’s Light Fragment.
    • Once Mirumok Destroyer Offin is destroyed, Offin Tett’s Light Sealed Weapon Box, Valtarra Eclipsed Belt, Forest Fury, or  JIN/BON/WON Magic Crystal – Cobelinus may drop at a certain rate.
  • The height of Wooden Fence and Medium Siege Tower has been increased and is now about 30% higher.
    • If you are behind Wooden Fences, you should not take damage from the following skills, though terrain elevation and character placement may still allow you to be damaged:
      • Blizzard, Meteor Shower, Thunder Storm, Bolide of Destruction, Wolf’s Frenzy, Sea Burial.
    • You may still be damaged by Flame Towers.
[System]
  • Fixed the issue where the alert message has Nouver’s background even when Ancient Kutum was disappearing due to time out.
  • Fixed the issue where the reset system message for Imperial Delivery was not being displayed.

Class Changes

<All Classes>

  • Freezing will now take into consideration the count system of CC skills. As with Stun, Knockback, and Knockdown, Freezing will have a count of 1.
    • Stiffness: 0.7/1 (Count limit)
    • Stun, Knockback, Knockdown, Floating, Bound, Grapple, Freezing: 1 (Count limit).
    • Immune for 5 sec. if CC skill is applied twice.
  • Damage increase rate of Air Attack has been decreased. Though it was difficult for Air Attack to be activated before, this has been made easier due to the changes in the CC skill effect applications. As a result, Air Attack damage increase rate has been adjusted but the changes are not great due to the fact that there still are requirements for Air Attack to be activated.

bdo-may-2nd-patch-notes-2

    • During PvP, an additional 30% will be decreased from the damage rate stated above. This is same as before.
  • Damage inflicted from the following Grapple skills has been increased.
    • Most Grapple skills were originally designed to provide competitiveness in PvP (typically 1 vs. 1 combats), but as CC skill effect application has been adjusted, this advantage has been diminished. Thus damage has been increased greatly and it is possible for Grapple skills to be used in combos as effective skills themselves.
