The Western Hiram Mountains, a new area for adventurers to explore, will now be opened. The region provides players with new Race quests alongside Awakening materials that will upgrade players’ gear from current Radiant Hiram Guardian to Brilliant. Disciple’s Equipment may also be acquired in the Abyssal Library, a new instanced dungeon where adventurers will be able to awaken their Mistsong Equipment to the new Disciple’s Equipment.

The updates come with new and exciting events. Aria’s Concert and the Naval Arena: Stillwater Gulf will now be available. Players can play a mini rhythm game and enjoy the show at Aria’s Concert, a highly-acclaimed event in Korean service. Naval Arena: Stillwater Gulf, a seasonal event, will provide a Battle Royale experience as participants board clippers and fight to the last man standing.
