  • Family Inventory

    Shakatu, the Valencian Mogul, discovered a special ancient artifact at Cantusa Desert and has called upon adventurers to visit Shakatu’s Territory. After witnessing the ancient artifact, adventurers have dubbed it the “Family Inventory.”

    • What is a Family Inventory?
    • Family Inventory is a convenient bag that all characters in the same family have access to. However, only consumable items listed below can be placed in this inventory.
      • 1) Scrolls
      • 2) Food
      • 3) Elixirs
      • 4) Pet Feed
      • 5) Worker Stamina Recovery Food
    • The Family Inventory can be obtained through quests or through the Pearl Shop by purchasing the Family Inventory Slot Coupon with Pearls or Loyalties, which creates a “Family Inventory” category within the Inventory upon use.
    • Starting weight of Family Inventory is 100LT. The Family Inventory can be expanded up to 28 slots.
    • Please note that the below items cannot be moved to the Family Inventory.
      • 1) Items bound to characters
      • 2) Oasis exclusive items
      • 3) Items purchased from the Guild Shop
      • 4) Content-specific items (such as Guild, Red Battlefield, Savage Rift items)
      • 5) Certain event items
    • Items that do not have “Can be placed in The Family Inventory” in their item description cannot be placed in The Family Inventory. Check out the item’s tooltip for more details.
    • Added quest to obtain the Family Inventory.
      • Accept Black Spirit Suggested Quest [Shakatu’s Gift] Invitation (Lv. 60 and above) to receive a Family Inventory +2 Expansion Coupon.

      • This quest is only available once per family.
    • You can check the official WIKI page on Family Inventory <Here>.

Over the past few years, we’ve had many voices from all over the world requesting a Family-shared inventory space. We thought having the Maid/Butler system and the addition of the Central Market would satisfy this need, but the requests were still frequent. So we decided to finally add the Family Inventory. However, only certain types of items can be placed in the Family Inventory. You can obtain the Family Inventory via a quest, which will start you off with 2 slots and 100LT. Slot expansion coupons can be purchased with Pearls and Loyalties.

        • [Season] Tuvala Conversion Stone Box must be claimed from your mailbox and used before December 9 regular maintenance.

[Game World]

  • Fixed the issues with topography of Scarlet Sand Chamber where World Boss Kutum appears.
  • Changed the placement of moving Calpheon Protesters so that they are not too close to the residence.
  • Changed the placement of Kansha in Pit of Undying so that he doesn’t obstruct matches.
  • Fixed the issue where World Map (M) would abnormally display topography.
  • Fixed the issue where vegetation would be placed abnormally in North Kaia Mountain and Olun’s Valley.

  • Added a new function that can transport mounts to where the adventurer is currently located.
    • You can transport mounts held in another Wharf/Stable to the current Wharf/Stable. Guild mounts are excluded from this function.
    • Transporting a mount costs 1 million Silver and will take 10 minutes to complete.
    • Transporting mounts with trade or barter goods in their inventory have a certain chance to lose all those items, so please take note.
    • Large ships cannot be transported to areas they cannot traverse to (i.e. rivers).


To bring a mount in a different region, you would previously have to log onto a different character located close to where that mount was stabled to send them to your current character. We’ve created this function to address the inconvenience of the existing method of transporting mounts.

After the introduction of the Naval Fame system, many adventurers found themselves unable to retrieve their ships from certain wharfs due to the drop in their Naval Fame. Now, with this function, adventurers with “Pirate” Naval Fame can still transport their mounts stored in other locations to the Kuit Islands.

  • Optimized effects of Mythical Arduanatt.

  • Doubled the chance of obtaining Mass of Pure Magic at the Crypt of Resting Thoughts node.
    • The chance of obtaining Mass of Pure Magic at the Crypt of Resting Thoughts node is now the same as that of obtaining it at the Star’s End node.
  • Mass of Pure Magic has been found at the Mountain of Division node.
    • Added Mass of Pure Magic to the Excavation node.
    • The work speed at this node is fast, but there is less chance of obtaining Mass of Pure Magic. However, the ratio of obtained Mass of Pure Magic amount by time is similar to that of Star’s End – Excavation node.
  • You can now use Manufacture on La Orzeca Armor with sockets.
    • However, you won’t be able to use Manufacture if there’re any crystals equipped to it, so you will need to extract the crystal(s) first before crafting.
  • Using another Golden Pig’s Blessing while one is active will now remove the current effect and apply the last Golden Pig’s Blessing only.
  • For details on the newly added Pearl Shop Update, please click < Here > !

  • Guild Boss Ferrid has absorbed the heat of the hottest lava in Omar Lava Cave and become even more ferocious and powerful.
    • Ferrid’s attacks, which contain the full might of its power, shake the cave and stimulate the unstable lava, causing a destructive explosion.
    • When this overflowed lava creates a swamp, Ferrid’s attacks will cause explosions and continuously produce Ferrid Talis.
    • Ferrid Tali is very dangerous as it approaches its nearby adventurers and spits out its lava.
    • There’s a low chance <Volcana Magma> Ferrid Tuny will appear in the Lava Swamp.
    • When <Volcana Magma> Ferrid Tuny reaches Ferrid, it will pass on its energy of lava to the Ferrid, making the latter more powerful.
    • When the Grapple or the CC status effect is applied to <Volcana Magma> Ferrid Tuny, it will immediately vanish, but if it’s near Ferrid at this point, it will still be able to pass on its lava energy of lava to the Ferrid.
    • As Guild Boss Ferrid has become more powerful, the chance of obtaining Energy of All Creations has increased as well as the drop rate of other loots.

This issue occurred typically for adventurers using GeForce Now but please click the Redownload Last Saves Settings button to have your previously saved settings applied to your client.

  • We are aware of the issue where transporting mounts held in Wharf/Stables of some areas including Kuit Islands and Narcion to the current Wharf/Stable is not possible. This issue will be resolved with December 9 regular maintenance. We apologize for the inconvenience.
