We’ve been hard at work on the next update to Bless Online, and today we’ll spend a few moments talking about the coming update (v18.104.22.168), set release on Sept. 5th! The focus of this update is new level 45 content: Rift of Space and Time, and the Random Dungeon.
Rift of Space and Time
The Rift of Space and Time offers players a new type of end-game quest: a wave defense challenge featuring two stages with differing maps, random monster waves, and a whopping 20 rounds! Better yet, this challenge is one of the ways to obtain a new type of equipment, bracelets!
Bracelets can be obtained by completing related quests, killing boss monsters, and as a ranking reward in Rift of Space of Time. The efficiency of bracelets can differ depending on the acquisition method.
Rift of Space and Time is available for players to queue solo or in a party of three, and requires players to guard a relic which the ensuing monster waves will be intent on destroying. Monsters will appear from various parts of the map (so check your six!), and differ with each round. Once a round is cleared, new monsters will then appear.
Upon clearing rounds, players will receive Marks of Space and Time, which can then be used at the Shop NPC to obtain items such as Summon Scrolls. Summon Scrolls will come in handy when executing your strategic gameplans to clear all 20 rounds! But beware, Marks of Space and Time cannot be cached, but will instead disappear upon completion of the Rift of Space and Time, or simply when the instance ends; so use them while you have them!
Those of you who manage to defeat the boss that appears at Rounds 10, and another at Round 20, will be guaranteed one of two bracelets (different depending on rounds cleared)! What’s more, players who place in the Top 10 will receive a set item that will 100% generate a bracelet.
How do you place in the Top 10, you ask? At the conclusion of each attempt, players will receive a personal and overall rank, letting them know how well they’re performed. Performance will in turn determine the Challenge Points awarded to that player, which can be used to purchase the material Fighting Spirit Magic Stone from the shops around the Rift of Space and Time to then upgrade your bracelet. So perfect your strategy, execute flawlessly, and place yourself amongst the best of the best for sweet, sweet loot!
The Random Dungeon is a new dungeon matching option that provides level 45 players the opportunity, twice per day, to solo-queue into dungeons (excluding raid dungeons) for a shot at looting Pure Moonlight Powder, Mysterious Mount Lucky Boxes, Mysterious Puzzle Lucky Boxes and more!
If you and your fellow dungeoneering compatriots successfully defeat the final boss for the dungeon you are in, you will receive said dungeon’s standard rewards, in addition to any of the possible rewards provided by the Random Dungeon.
So what are you waiting for?! You’ve got your work cut out for you, now go forth and enjoy!
