    A new test server patch has been released, with the final content for the Ark update. It has the new area of Arcane River, the Primal Sea, Esfera, as well as a new boss, Spider King Will!

    I guess the Black Mage makes his Commanders all get makeovers before they are able to be fought [​IMG]


    Primal Sea, Esfera

    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    The new Arcane River area, the Primal Sea, Esfera, has been added. Characters level 235 or higher who have completed the ‘It’s not Time Yet’ quest can go to Esfera by accepting the ‘Strangers’ quest.

    Here’s the new background music that was added in this patch.

    Boss: Will

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Will, the ruler of the Mirror World has finally appeared in the Primal Sea, Esfera. You can meet him while completing the Esfera quests in the Corridor of Diffraction.

    You can fight Commander Will in a party of 1~6 people. I’m not too sure on the boss fight specifics yet but I’ll add them when I find them!

    Mechanics


    Will has 3 stages. Again, I have no idea how the boss works (for some reason he actually has a blue bar and grey bar underneath his regular HP bar), so I’m just gonna be posting the animations for now.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Randomly, Will will summon Beholders around the map, which will shoot out bullets either straight or diagonally.

    [​IMG]

    Randomly, spider legs will shoot down from the sky.

    [​IMG]

    I’m guessing he can summon spider webs which will trap you if you walk into them? Something like that probably.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    These three animations are titled Infection, with the last one being labelled After Host Death. Maybe this skill is a status that is inflicted one one person and can spread to others nearby, even after death?

    [​IMG]

    Of course, what would any boss be without a screen cracking instakill?

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    It seems that there are special skills that you can use while fighting him that have to do with the Moonlight Gauge. These skills consume a certain amount of Moonlight to transport you to another dimension, allow you to use potions, or remove a spiderweb.

    In a video that I saw, the fight begins with Melan telling you that Will needs to be fought in two different worlds at the same time, and you should collect Moonlight to be able to move to the other world. This could be why Will has two additional HP bars, one for each world. You might have to defeat him in both worlds at the same time, so you’ll need to split up your party accordingly and coordinate.

    Phase 1

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Will’s first phase is sort of normal, he just sorta floats around and attacks you.

    Phase 2

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Phase 2 adds a couple of new attacks as well as the reflection of Will’s true form below. I’m not sure if this means you’ll get hit twice by every skill or something…

    Phase 3

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    In phase 3, Will goes full spider king and transforms for most of his attacks.

    Rewards


    [​IMG]

    A new 5th job Skill Core has been added. This skill cannot be acquired through Core Gemstones or Core Crafting. You can only receive it by using Mirror World’s Core Gemstones, which can be acquired from Will.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    • Spider in Mirror: Will’s Erda disrupts space, connecting reality with the Mirror World. For a certain period of time, spiders from inside the mirror will appear in reality. (max level: 25)
      • Level 1: Consumes 15% max HP. Disrupt space, dealing 780% damage 12 times on up to 15 enemies. For 48 seconds, a mirror will be summoned. Every few seconds, it will enter an attacking state, during which it will use up to 10 spider legs to deal 182% damage 8 times. If a single enemy is hit by 5 spider legs, the attacking state will immediately end. After the attacking state ends, there is a reactivation cooldown of 5 seconds. Cooldown: 250 seconds.
      • Level 25: Consumes 15% max HP. Disrupt space, dealing 1560% damage 12 times on up to 15 enemies. For 48 seconds, a mirror will appear.

If a single enemy is hit by 5 spider legs, the attacking state will immediately end. After the attacking state ends, there is a reactivation cooldown of 5 seconds. Cooldown: 250 seconds.
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Will’s Boss Souls and Soul Skills have been added.

    [​IMG]

    • [​IMG] Grasp of Destruction: Consumes 300 Soul. Will transforms into a spider and unleashes a devastating attack, dealing 1000%/1200% damage 4 times on up to 15 enemies. Cooldown: 40 seconds. (max level: 2)

    Will has also been added to the Soul Collector, with two new illustrations.


    “A person’s true worth is revealed through their choices.”

    “Wah, what a surprise! I didn’t make this choice!”
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    New Pocket items have been added. These are part of the Dark Boss set, along with the Rouge Control Machine Mark, Magic Eye Patch, Black Heart, and Dreamy Belt.

    I assume that Will will drop them, just like these other equips are dropped by their respective bosses.

    • Cursed Red Grimoire (20 STR, 10 DEX/INT/LUK, 100 HP/MP, 10 attack/magic attack, tradeable until equipped)
    • Cursed Blue Grimoire (20 INT, 10 STR/DEX/LUK, 100 HP/MP, 10 attack/magic attack, tradeable until equipped)
    • Cursed Green Grimoire (20 LUK, 10 STR/DEX/INT, 100 HP/MP, 10 attack/magic attack, tradeable until equipped)
    • Cursed Yellow Grimoire (20 DEX, 10 STR/INT/LUK, 100 HP/MP, 10 attack/magic attack, tradeable until equipped)

    [​IMG]

    A new medal has been added.

    • The One Who Pierced the Truth (15 all stats, 1000 HP/MP, 4 attack/magic attack)
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    New items have been added.

    • Primal Droplet Stone (dropped from monsters in Esfera)
    • Cobweb Droplet Stone (dropped by Will)
    • Arachno Coin

    [​IMG]

    Similar to the the Phantasma Coins in Lacheln, in Esfera you’ll have to hunt monsters to collect Primal Droplet Stones and defeat Will for Cobweb Droplet Stones.

    You can trade in 10 Primal Stones and 1 Cobweb Stone for 1 Arachno Coin. (Thanks to 세벽 on Inven for the screenshot!)

    [​IMG]

    You can spend the Arachno Coins in the Arachno Coin Shop. Here you can buy the Arcane Shade weapons for 24 coins each, or the Arcane Shade overalls/hats/shoulders for 16 coins each. (Thanks to 일감 on Inven for the screenshot!)
