Combat Mechanics

1.Arden – The Oak Sage

Optimizing the description of the skill “Entangling Roots” without affecting its actual effect.

2.Alsa – Desert Flare

Fixing an issue where “Vigorous Slam” sometimes failed to correctly attack enemies. Fixing an issue where “Swift Evasion” did not trigger when taking close-range damage from enemies with large physiques. Fixing an issue where “Rolling Boulder” could be interrupted and fail to deal damage after the SFX appeared.

3.Antandra – Desert Fury

Antandra's stopping position when she rushes towards an ally with the Exclusive Equipment Skill “Gale Barrier” will now be determined by the positions of both her and the ally when the skill is triggered.

4.Satrana – Ember Enchantress

Fixing an issue where the skill “Ignite Passions” could sometimes ignite allies under certain circumstances.

5.Vala – Phantom of Oakenfell

Fixing an issue where ranged normal attacks could sometimes miss due to the enemy's height. Vala will be considered a melee character when wielding a sword and a ranged character when in Skyblaster mode.

6.Lumont – Benign Horn

Fixing an issue where the Ultimate “Lumont's Charge” sometimes failed to continuously knock enemies back.

7.Reinier – Symmetric Sin

Fixing an issue where the actual enemy characters swapped by the skill “Dynamic Balance” could sometimes differ from the preview during Preparation.

8.”Arcane Spider Eggs” produced by spider monsters will now be in an Unaffected state.

Bugfix

1.In previous versions, a player's Base Power displayed in systems such as Friends and Guild was erroneously affected by the collection progress of Season Artifacts. Since Base Power should only reflect a player's strength in the Starter Story, this update will fix this issue. This fix will cause a decrease in the Base Power value for players who have obtained Season Artifacts, but the Power in the season will not be affected, and the actual effect of Season Artifacts in the game will remain the same as before. 2.Fixing several interface navigation issues in Arcane Labyrinth. 3.Fixing several issues with the chat interface.
Honor Duel Adjustments
1.Fixing an issue where some Equipment icons and names did not match. 2.Fixing an issue where Rhys had a chance to infinitely cast his Ultimate when equipped with specific Equipment.

AFK Journey 1.1.14 Hotfix

1. Adjusted the strength of the enemies in the Season AFK Stages, on season map, and Season Legend Trial starting floors to offer a more balanced and enjoyable season experience for players at different progression levels in the Starter Story. Please note that this change may result in errors when replaying certain cleared stages. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and will keep you updated on the resolution of this issue.
