Power Up Week Is Coming May 30


Greeting Daevas!

Next week after the May 30 maintenance, some grandiose buffs will be applied to the servers for one week deemed Power Up Week. These buffs will help you greatly when enhancing various items:

  • Failing to enchant a Stigma will result in a decrease of one enchantment level rather than the destruction of the item
  • Failing to temper accessories will result in the decrease of one tempering level rather than the destruction of the item
  • Failing to enchant Essence Cores will result in the decrease of one enchantment level if using Omega Enchantment Stones rather than the destruction of the item

Full Power Up Week details will be available next week.


Secret of the Ancients Returns


The Ancient King Ramsus and his wife Queen Shepsut have returned to the world of Atreia. With them have arrived mysterious monsters that threaten all inhabitants of Atreia. Help them return the monsters to their time, and get rewarded with EXP and fabulous prizes.

How To Participate

Ramsus is worried the monsters that accompanied him through the rift will cause great harm to the Daevas in Atreia, and has asked for your assistance in capturing their spirits in Ancient Shards so they can be sealed away once more.

Ramsus, Shepsut, and Shuphinx can all be found in the capital cities, and they all offer various quests which will reward you. Ramsus, the Ancient King, offers a repeatable quest; in exchange for (1) Ancient Shard, Rasmus will give you an Ancient Relic, a box containing various prizes. Shepsut, his wife, offers two quests for you, which grant EXP in exchange for your Ancient Shards. Finally, Shuphinx offers another two quests.

For 15 Ancient Shards, you can exchange them for one Ancient Insignia. One Insignia can be purchased per day from Shuphinx. If you collect 14 Ancient Insignias, you can turn them in to Shuphinx for a Divine Relic, which contains valuable items. Shuphinx also offers a weekly quest that grants three mysterious puzzle boxes. Defeating various Instance bosses will give you the keys required to solve the puzzles, which will grant an Ancient Shard plus a random Puzzle Box or prize bundle. You will also earn one Key Bundle every 30 minutes up to six per day.

Each day from 7PM till 10PM server time, the evil Yanubis will appear with his minions in Norsvold and Iluma. Yanubis will grant players an Ancient Shard as well as experience when defeated. Yanubis will respawn periodically during his spawn period.

Ancient Shards can also be found by completing dungeons  Additional Ancient Shards and Ancient Keys can be purchased from the store.
