The focus of today’s letter is new content, changes and improvements that we will be bringing to you in Bless Online very soon. The team has been working hard on things for future updates, and we wanted to share a bit about them with you.
The July 4th Update (v188.8.131.52)
We have heard all of your feedback that you would like to see more activities and content added for the end-game, and this update will do just that! We will be adding Royal Quests and Basel Gorge for your enjoyment.
* Royal Quests
Royal Quests are a new daily quest series that will be available to characters starting at level 45. Players will be able to find and accept these quests in multiple locations around the world; they will be marked by purple quest icons on the world map. Players will be able to complete a total of 15 Royal Quests per day to maximize their rewards—which we think they will want to do since these quests have better rewards than regular quests. Some of the possible rewards even include rare pets and mounts!
* Basel Gorge
Basal Gorge is the crux of the conflict between the Union and Hieron factions. As such, it is recommended that Basel Gorge be approached with a party of level 45 players.
Located to the east of where the Siege of Castra takes place, Basel Gorge has a wide variety of gameplay elements that players can take part in, including difficult bosses to take down (Spider Queen Akasys, Murderous Rover Sykeeli, and more), enemy bases to attack, and enemy troops to battle. With options for many kinds of play within Basel Gorge, we hope that all high-level players are able to enjoy this area as much as we do!
If you would like to read in more detail about Royal Quests and Basel Gorge, you can check out the update notice.
In addition to this new content, we are also going to be making some adjustments to improve the Market with the update on July 4th. We received your feedback that the Market was not functioning in the way that either you wanted or we intended, so we are making some changes to its functionality. Please let us know what you think of these changes once they have been implemented.
* Changes in the Market
Our goal with these changes is to prevent players from having difficulty using or from being unable to use the Market due to issues with item prices being raised to values that most players can’t afford to pay. We already implemented a first step in these changes on June 26nd which you can read about here [https://steamcommunity.com/games/681660/announcements/detail/1684792325780524895].
We have adjusted some of the standard prices of certain items that have been abnormally changed, and temporarily locked them so as to reach stability in the Market. We also temporarily increased the range of the minimum/maximum registration price and will leave it that way until the market balance is improved.
In addition, we will also be making some improvements to the Market UI to make it more user friendly, and plan to display additional information about transactions that have been made and make other modifications to the UI according to the system changes.
We have even more updates planned for the near future, so stay tuned! We’re also still working on many improvements stemming from your feedback on balance, performance, bugs, and more. We look forward to hearing your feedback on these new changes and content.
