    A new test server patch was released, with the new boss Kaling, a new area Shangri-La, another piece of the Ethernal set, and Exceptional Enhancements. While both the area and bosses look and sound absolutely amazing, I’m disappointed that it’s another mini expansion to Odium (like Karote was to Hotel Arcs).

    Of course, there’s also the drama about how bad regular server is and what Wonky talked about during the livestream yesterday. I’m not going to cover it (I still have nightmares about the 1000 different notices and letters during the flame incident) but in my personal opinion, there are a lot of valid criticisms of reg server that probably need to be looked at but I definitely didn’t expect them to do anything about it this patch since it’s a really complicated situation overall (also the whole “KMS just discovered Reboot” take is really so dumb lol).

    For what Wonky said, I think part of it was that he got emotional and made some off-the-cuff remarks that people took really badly and another part is they definitely should’ve prepared better for those questions/comments since it’s everything players have been talking about the last couple of weeks and I have no idea why he, as the director of the game, thought he should address it like that lol. They already took down the stream VOD and he posted an apology so the Nexon PR team will probably be working overtime from now on.

    New Boss: Kaling

    Information

    [​IMG]

    Kaling has invaded Shangri-La with the Perils to destroy the paradise and achieve her goal. Stop Kaling and test your strength!

    Participation Requirements

    • Characters level 275 or higher who have completed the 5th job advancement and the ‘[Shangri-La] A Farewell and A Meeting’ quest.

    Participation Method

    • Enter through the gate in Shangri-La: Pavilion of the Four Seasons.

    Kaling is a level 285 boss with 380% defense. It requires 330 Authentic Force for full damage and has a total of 3 phases. There is one difficulty, Normal Mode. Kaling can be entered 3 times per day and can be cleared 1 time per week.

    Phase 1

    [​IMG]
    Invasion

    In phase 1, you will face the three Perils: Hundun, Qiongqi, and Taowu. This is special in that you must split your party up between the three bosses, up to two people per Peril. After defeating a Peril, you can then join your other teammates to help with the remaining ones.

    Destroyed Four Seasons

    Each Peril has their own map with different attacks and mechanics.

    [​IMG]

    There’s also two mechanics shared between all of them. The first is Spiritual Power which is shared between all party members. Kaling has no death count limit but this Spiritual Power will go down over time and also whenever you die. If it hits 0, you will fail the boss.

    [​IMG]

    The second is the Perils Balance Gauge. Each Peril will have their own gauge that you must keep from hitting either 0 or 1000. If they do, you’ll lose some Spiritual Power and you will no longer be able to receive the special buffs that you would if you defeated the Peril without disrupting the balance.

    There are some attacks you can get hit by to increase different Perils’ gauges, so you must keep an eye on them to maintain their balance.

    Phase 2

    [​IMG]
    Faded Winter

    In phase 2, you will face Kaling, after she has absorbed the three Perils.

    Phase 3

    [​IMG]
    Ruination of Four Seasons

    In phase 3, you will face Kaling and the three Perils at the same time.
