Hi guys, very sorry about the delay on this article; had a lot of things going on this past month, but here it finally is. Enjoy!


Pirate Nation Overhaul

The Pirate Nation is an aspect of the game that has largely remained untouched since the launch of the game. With the August Update, XL has made the Pirate Nation into a third, neutral faction separate from Nuia and Haranya, with the nation being treated as any other would, rather than being a punishment for players who grief too much.

If a player is of Level 55 or higher, they can embark on a series of quests in order to become a pirate, rather than becoming one automatically by reaching 3,000 Infamy points (The latter method has been removed, and players whose Infamy goes over 3,000 will not automatically go Pirate.). That being said, entry into the Pirate Nation is only open every Sunday, and a maximum of 10 people can enter per week. Players can see the remaining number of slots that Sunday on a special noticeboard on Freedich Isle.

Pirates, while hostile to Nuian and Haranyan players, are neutral to Neutral Guards, and will not be attacked by them. Additionally, if they are killed in PvP on one of the two starter continents, they will not be sent to Trial.

Growlgate Isle remains as the home area of the Pirates, although the teleport on Growlgate will now be accessible to all factions, including Nuia and Haranya.

In order to compensate for Pirates now being a risk-free budget Player Nation, XL has made it the duty of the Pirate Nation to defend the bosses Morpheus, Rangora, and the Delphinad Ghost Ships.  As a result, Pirates cannot kill these bosses, and instead must defend them from the other nations. If they succeed in this and the bosses are not  killed before despawning, the Pirates receive rewards, which include Gilda Stars and Honor Points for all who participate in this, as well as the loot from the boss, the latter of which will spawn in a special chest after the bosses despawn. Only Pirates can open this chest.


Abyss of the Ayanad Library

With the August Update comes a ‘new’ dungeon located in the already existing Ayanad Library: The Abyss of the Ayanad Library. With recycled bosses from the Ayanad Earring quest-line, it’s features include a variety of new dungeon gear, which serve as the successor to Tier 4 Mistsong gear, making this gear essentially Tier 5 Mistsong.

Players can enter the dungeon at the entrance to the Ayanad Library. The dungeon can be done by a party of up to 5 people, with a minimum level requirement of 55, and a daily entrance quota of 3 times.

Each boss has a daily quest with the objective of killing them, from which players receive 500,000 experience and 1 Abyssal Debris as a reward for completion.

Library Gear

attachment image

As mentioned in the previous section, the new dungeon brings the next tier to Mistsong Gear. With stats comparable to that of Ayanad (Slightly lower) and a maximum synthesis grade of Eternal, the new Library dungeon gear is another step in XL’s plan to help balance the gear gap, and perhaps make Crafted and Obsidian gear obsolete in the process.

Players can acquire Library gear by Awakening Tier 4 Mistsong gear at Legendary, or by receiving it from boss drops within the dungeon. The gear can be fully tempered up to +30, and each weapon has a unique Use effect, while each armor set has a unique Set bonus.

The Awakening scroll is called the Abyss Awakening Scroll, and requires 25 Abyssal Crystals, 5 Prismatic Diamonds, 4 Sunlight Archeum Essence, and 5 Abyssal Debris (A new item from the bosses) to craft. Awakening will always succeed with the scroll, but can decrease the Temper Tier on a piece of gear by up to -2, although this cannot fall below +20 Temper.

As mentioned before, Library Gear is can be synthesized up to Eternal, with players being able to use any dungeon gear for synthesization. Players can also Synthesize Library Gear with Abyssal Experience Stones, which grant 7,000 experience per stone, and are dropped by the above dungeon bosses.

Below is a table which shows exactly what gear turns into what when Awoken.

    Did you make a mistake or are both the healer and the magic cloth belts the exact same stat wise? I thought the mage one would at least have int, but both belts have stam which is kinda dumb, but i guess 2 extra gem slots so I can stick T3 fireglows in it.

      It might be a mistake to be honest. I’ll look into it tomorrow and recomment (it’s late here and I gotta go sleep).

    Hi Mark, thanks for the article 🙂
    Does it mean that the t4 mistsong shield that currently has spirit/stam will be converted to strength/stam upon t5?

    As always, excellent work Mark. Until now, I thought each of the bosses of the new library dungeon dropped one Abyssal Experience Stone to every party member, now I understand it only drops 1 and you actually have to roll it? Can you confirm this? Thank you!

    Hey, thank you for the great work you do, it’s very much appreciated.

    My question is unrelated to this particluar article: on the official forums, there is a rumor going around about a tax increase for properties — up to 300% from the third. Have you heard anything about this?

    Tbh i though that healer one will give spirit like the one from mistsong… Pretty stupid tbh especially that set is supposed to be more spirit than stamina but in reality we get 494 spirit and 548 stamina.
    If you made mistake and both are spirit then it will be:
    604 spirit and 438 stamina which looks pretty accurate basing on proportions other parts have…

    Based on my informations mage set has stamina in belt and wrists.
