Maintenance 3/6: Shugo Kingdom Adventure event, BCM update; survey changes 3/27

Greetings Daevas! There will be a scheduled maintenance tomorrow, Wednesday, March 6, from 5:30 AM to 9:00 AM Central Time.

This maintenance will kick off a treasure-tastic new instance event unlike any you've seen before: Shugo Kingdom Adventure! Brave the Shugo Imperial Tomb and be transformed into a Shugo! Protect your towers from waves of enemies and get the tomb's treasure, akakak! 

There will also be a Black Cloud Marketplace update featuring new XP-boosting items, new timescrolls, special manastone boxes, hidden kisks, Shugo Kingdom Adventure event items, and more! 

We also want to give our players notice that we will be implementing the following changes to Asmodian incentive surveys and Adventurer's Guide surveys on Wednesday, March 27: 


  • Tiamat has shown a dramatic increase in server population! To reflect the current active population, we will be depreciating the Asmodian incentive surveys on Tiamat.

  • The 50e set will only be able to be claimed by level 51 characters on Siel and Israphel.

  • The Tier 2 Crucible weapon will only be able to be claimed by level 54 characters on Siel and Israphel.

  • The Adventurer's Guide surveys will be retired.

Be sure to claim any unclaimed Asmodian incentive surveys and Adventurer's Guide surveys before Wednesday, March 27! 

Look forward to Shugo Kingdom Adventure and the Black Cloud Marketplace update tomorrow, Daevas!

Platform maintenance tomorrow - gameplay will not be interrupted!

Greetings Daevas!

There will be a brief maintenance tomorrow, February 28 from 7am to 10am Central Time that will affect all functions of account management/creation, and website logins. During this time you will be unable to purchase from the Black Cloud Marketplace. This will not interfere with game play in any way. We apologize for any inconvenience!

Make purchases now in case you need something tomorrow! Be sure to check out our new Wealth Lockbox Keys in the store today!

Maintenance, February 27, 2013 - Valentine's Event ending

There will be a scheduled maintenance period tomorrow, Wednesday, February 27 from 5:30 AM to 9:00 AM Central Time.

The Valentine's Day Event will end at this time, and the heart pieces will no longer be available in the store.

If you have not yet gotten what you desired from the United Hearts, be sure to pick up a few more Right and Left pieces before they are no longer available!

Combat Lockboxes/Keys will be replaced by Wealth Lockboxes/Keys both in-game and on the Black Cloud Marketplace. Combat Lockboxes will return in a couple of months so be sure to hold on to any extra Combat Keys you have.

Wealth Lockboxes coming Wednesday!

Beginning Wednesday, February 27, Wealth Lockboxes will begin dropping in place of Combat Lockboxes all over Atreia. You will need a Wealth Lockbox key in order to open it. As with Combat Lockbox Keys, you can get these in-game, purchase them from another player, or buy them on the Black Cloud Marketplace!

We will be rotating the lockboxes monthly, so expect to see Combat Lockboxes back in couple of months! Please note that if you have a Combat Lockbox Key, it will not open a Wealth Lockbox - but don't throw it away because Combat Lockboxes WILL be back!

Wealth Lockboxes can provide you with - you guessed it! - different kinds of wealth! Atreia has many currencies, and most of them can be gained as a treasure from this box. The table below shows all possible drops from the Wealth Lockbox. Expect to see these new lockboxes after maintenance on Wednesday!
