Brand-new content!


I. Limited-time Event: Illume Project 2674

Event time: Mar 30th, 2023 - Apr 26th, 2023 at 20:00 (UTC)

In the year 2674, mega-corporations have developed into financial behemoths that rule over all of Astra. What does the future of our world hold in store?

1. During the event, head to the Club in Astra to accept quests and obtain Energy Cubes. Every day, up to 3 quests can be accepted from the 8 quests.

2. Gather Energy Cube to receive loads of event rewards, and unlock the plots in Illume Project 2674 event.

3. Quests cannot be accepted once the event is over. However, you can still unlock story plots with your Energy Cubes.


Hero Adjustments

I. Akos Hu

1. During [Feral Frenzy] and [Feral Frenzy: Grab], Akos Hu can now perform Tiger Leap by Jumping or Double Jumping without sprinting first. The maximum height of the Tiger Leap is also increased.

2. Enriched the movement performance of Tiger Leap.

3. Adjusted the airborne Horizontal Strike during a Tiger Leap. It can now interrupt the attack of enemies under Tiger Leap status.

4. Increased the effective range of the 3 consecutive tiger strikes under the ultimate [Feral Frenzy].

5. Purple Focus Pounce will no longer trigger the Stone Form of Greatsword.

//Dev Note: Before the adjustment, Akos Hu had to sprint to Tiger Jump, and a Double Jump would cancel it, resulting in great restrictions on Akos Hu's actions during combat. We want to free him from these restrictions so that he can unleash the true power of "The Rebel Claw." We will continue to monitor the combat experience of Akos Hu and his opponents.


II. Justina Gu

1. Increased the duration of [Arctic Wraith] and [Arctic Wraith: Blizzard] from 20s to 30s.

2. In Duos modes, after casting [Arctic Wraith], the usage attempts of [Shadowswipe] are reduced from 4 times to 3 times.

3. After casting [Arctic Wraith: Frostwind], the CD of rage gaining through auto restoration or attacking is reduced from 8s to 2s.


III. Wuchen

1. After casting [Tai Chi Rift], the special effect of a successful Teleport is enlarged in height.

//Dev Note: Currently, Wuchen's Ultimate [Tai Chi Rift] brings a high fault tolerance to the team, which becomes more important in matches that require higher ranks. This has led to a slow combat pace and a long confrontation time. So we adjusted that when Wuchen casts [Tai Chi Rift] in some flat terrain, it becomes more visible to the enemy teams, thus accelerating the combat pace.


IV. Valda Cui

1. The water spear of [Nether Nightmare] and the Vertical Strike water spear of [Nether Nightmare: Bind] can now hitstun Vajra, Almighty General, and Bronze Mech in any status, in which:

(1) The water spear of [Nether Nightmare] will put the enemy into a heavy staggered status.

(2) The Vertical Strike water spear of [Nether Nightmare: Bind] will put the enemy slightly staggered.


V. Takeda Nobutada

1. [Mythic Grab: Takedown] will no longer grab the weapon of the enemy, and the damage multiplier is reduced from 2.4 to 1.4.

2. [Demonic Aid]'s airborne Demonic Strike damage is reduced by 40%.

3. [Demonic Aid: Teleport]'s hitstun effect on Vajra, Almighty General, and Bronze Mech is enhanced.

4. [Demonic Aid: Engulf]'s Demonic Strike damage is reduced, the rate of converting damage into Health is increased, and Health restored from Demonic Strike remains unchanged.


VI. Yueshan

[Line Breaker: Ambition]'s startup and recovery frames are accelerated, and the jump height is reduced.

Group 3: Cannon and its Souljade;

Group 4: Swarm and basic shoot of Feria Shen's Bronze Mech;

Group 5: Ballista and cannon shoot of Feria Shen's Bronze Mech;
