Hey all! Welcome to the first article about Patch 4.5 (With confirmed changes). In this article, I’ll be diving into some of the new items in 4.5, such as Tier 3 Lunagems, Rank 14 Halcyona Necklaces, and a new Boss glider. Before I begin, I would like to thank D_Pain, or Psychopathic, from Thunderwing, who helped me quite a bit in researching this new update on Korea and double checking my information.

But without further ado, let’s get into it!


Lunagems

With Patch 4.5 comes a new tier of Lunagem: Tier 3 Lunagems. These Lunagems follow the cycle of unbreakable Lunagems released in Patch 4.0, but are far harder to make and have better stats. This Tier of Lunagems appears to have the title of Beautiful, they will be Heroic in grade, and give 60 Gear Score per gem.

In addition to Tier 3 Lunagems, four new Waveglow (Blue) Lunagem and two new Galeglow (Yellow) Lunagem types were added. One acquires them in the same way as existing lunagems.

Item Name Stat Slot
Waveglow Lunagem: Protection 74 Defense Two-Handed Weapon
Splendid Waveglow Lunagem: Protection 105 Defense Two-Handed Weapon
Waveglow Lunagem: Magic Protection 74 Magic Defense Two-Handed Weapon
Splendid Waveglow Lunagem: Magic Protection 105 Magic Defense Two-Handed Weapon
Galeglow Lunagem: Evasion Evasion Rate increased by 0.8%. Hands
Splendid Galeglow Lunagem: Evasion Evasion Rate increased by 1.2%. Hands

Waveglow Lunagem: Defense and Waveglow Lunagem: Magic Defense (And their respective Splendid types) have been changed to be slottable into every piece of gear with the exception Two-Handed Weapons.

Also, the names of Sunglow (Pink) Lunagems were changed to reflect the skills they affect, instead of the skill tree.

  • Example: Sunglow Lunagem: Battlerage changed to Sunglow Lunagem: Triple Slash. 

Some of the effects of Sunglow (Pink) Lunagems were changed with respect to the skill changes in Patch 4.5.

Existing Name New Name Change
Sunglow Lunagem: Archery Sunglow Lunagem: Arrow of Light Increases Piercing Arrow Damage → Increases Arrow of Light Damage
Sunglow Lunagem: Witchcraft Sunglow Lunagem: Urgency Increases Mitigation Duration → Decreases the Cast Time of Urgency

Finally, Lunagems can now only be sold if they are sealed. Unsealed Lunagems cannot be sold, but can be resealed via a Transmuter. 

Tier 3 Stats

In the table below, you will find the stats of the new Tier 3 Lunagems. For the sake of simplicity, and for my sanity, I’ll be using color names instead of the actual Lunagem type names.

Boss Lunagems

Alongside the new Tier 3 Lunagems, XL introduced a new series of Lunagems slottable only into Wrist equipment that are exclusively from World Bosses. These new Boss Lunagems are shown in the table below, along with which boss they drop from. One is dropped during each kill, and these gems are tradeable, and thus, auctionable. Like Tier 3 Lunagems, these Lunagems also appear to give 60 Gear Score per. An image of these new Lunagems is also shown below.

Angry Thorn Increases the duration of your Stuns and Impales. 4.0% Kraken

In order to craft them, one requires 1 Mythic Rank 13 Halcyona Necklace of the corresponding type, 85 Honorforged Medals, and 40 Starlight Archeum Essence.

Eternal Erenor Cloaks

Along with Eternal Rank 14 Halcyona Necklaces come Eternal Erenor Cloaks, which share the same properties as Erenor Cloaks of lower tiers, and are upgraded in the same sort of way, by synthesizing. Eternal Erenor Cloaks max out at 90,000 experience, and have slightly better stats than Mythic Erenor Cloaks, which is the maximum grade currently for Erenor Cloaks.


So I hope everyone enjoyed that! As always, questions are welcome, so feel free to ask them in the Comments section below.

      Both, to be honest. I was going to edit it in, but didn’t see any place fit to put it in. It’ll be in the next article though!

    I think you mixed the stats of the halcyona necklaces up, but thanks for the info 🙂

    Nice work Mark. 30 Sturdy Ingots was a surprise on the mat requirements. But on the flip side so was only 50 superior lunarite, I thought they may actually follow the same pattern and make a 3rd tier of lunarite and require 50:1 combine to make one. Thankfully that didn’t happen. 50 T2 is way better than 1000 T2 for these T3 lunagems.

    That said using a T2 lunagem as well means a total of 70 Superior Lunarite per gem, that and 30 Sturdy ingots makes them pretty significant in cost for the most part. As comments come in I expect a great many to be about the lunarite problem (lack of lunarite). I have a feeling we’re going to see a return of lunarite to the RNG boxes any time now… and that P2W argument is going to rear its ugly head.

      Yeah. The problem here stems from the fact that we can’t break down old gems, and are instead left with them (Which barely anyone really wants).

      If we were able to break them down, the supply of Lunarite would increase substantially, thus making T3 gems cheaper and more easily accessible for players when they do come along (As well as T2 gems currently). Pretty stupid to be honest.

    I thought the whole point was to help get TTK up so you actually can have some PVP instead of every fight being STUN->DEAD… but toughness only goes up to what it was before even at T3 yet people have way more crit and damage. Am I completely missing something or is XL just really that stupid?

    Thanks as always.

    Do xl has any plans about rerolling obsidian items? with the change on stats people with high tier and grade got screwed by it.

    Mark, just wondering if you know what happened with blue and green regrade charms on the Korean servers. With 100% success chances they would be useless.
