    The time has come to show off your battle skills in our special Discovery Arena event! Characters Lv. 33 and up will be qualified to participate in a special 5v5, PvE arena match, so get in there and start earning Arena Points!

    [​IMG]

    You can register for a battle by going to the Discovery Arena. To get there, complete the "[Discovery] Discovery Arena" quest from the star event notifier on the left side of the screen, then open the Discovery UI and move to the Discovery Arena map. Once in the waiting area, speak with the NPC Cynapse. From there, you can participate in battles, register your combat power with your current power, learn about the battle details, and view the rankings.

    Once you select "Matching," you'll be matched up with 4 other characters from your account based on your battle rank (you can register characters while participating in the battle). You can view limited information about your teammates' stats, and decide whether to battle or request a rematch. Winning will earn you Arena Points, which will increase your overall battle rank (battle ranks reset every week).

    Once the battle starts, your team will be placed in a stronghold with walls and turrets to help you during the fight. Walls have high HP and will block your opponents path, while turrets will attack your opponent and alert you to their position. There are two types of turrets:

    • Bombarding Turrets: Detects players' positions and launches vertical attacks that can reach anywhere on the map
    • Laser Turrets: Placed in a fixed location and launches horizontal attacks at specific areas to the left and right of the turret.

    If you can defeat all the enemies on the other team, you win the match! You'll receive Ark Points as well as Arena Points as a reward, and your battle rank will go up. If your character is killed, you leave the match, or the client is closed, then you lose the match. Your battle rank will go down, but stronghold enhancements will remain the same.

    After the event ends, the rankings will be finalized and you’ll receive the following rewards based on your final ranking:

    Daily Reward:

    If you participate in Discovery Arena battles for 15+ minutes each day, you'll obtain Arena Points based on how you ranked during your matches! Arena Points can be exchanged for 1 Ark Point Each, and each character can exchange up to 10,000 Arena Points per day.

    Once this event starts, your character will be given the Summon Parrot skill! You can then summon a parrot that you can feed with Colorful Fruit that drops when you hunt monsters within your level range (20 levels below and 20 levels above). In exchange for picking up the Colorful Fruit, it will give you Discovery Points, which can be exchanged for Ark Coins! (Each color of fruit gives the same amount of Discovery Points).

    [​IMG]

    The parrot will grow from stage 1 to 10 as you fight monsters and feed it fruit, and its skills will increase with each stage. Once it hits stage 10, its body color will change depending on which color fruit you've been feeding it! You can use the parrot for an additional two weeks after the event is over.

    Here's how the parrot's stats grow with each stage:

    • Level 1: Weapon ATT/Magic ATT +2, Damage Against Normal Monsters +2%, Monster DEF Ignored 2%, Boss Damage +2%, Critical Rate +2%
    • Level 2: Weapon ATT/Magic ATT +4, Damage Against Normal Monsters +4%, Monster DEF Ignored 4%, Boss Damage +4%, Critical Rate +4%
    • Level 3: Weapon ATT/Magic ATT +6, Damage Against Normal Monsters +6%, Monster DEF Ignored 6%, Boss Damage +6%, Critical Rate +6%
    • Level 4: Weapon ATT/Magic ATT +8, Damage Against Normal Monsters +8%, Monster DEF Ignored 8%, Boss Damage +8%, Critical Rate +8%
    • Level 5: Weapon ATT/Magic ATT +10, Damage Against Normal Monsters +10%, Monster DEF Ignored 10%, Boss Damage +10%, Critical Rate +10%
    • Level 6: Weapon ATT/Magic ATT +12, Damage Against Normal Monsters +12%, Monster DEF Ignored 12%, Boss Damage +12%, Critical Rate +12%

    Players with characters Lv. 33 and above can partake in a quiz for Ark Points! The more questions you answer correctly, the more Ark Points you'll win!

    During the event, a "Discovery Glacier" invitation will appear above your head at the 15th and 45th of minute of every hour. Accept this invitation to enter a game of OX quiz. Statements will appear at the top of the screen, and if you think the statement is true, move into the O zone. If you think the statement is false, move into the X zone. Make sure you move into one zone or the other because sitting in the middle will always get you a wrong answer. There are a total of 20 questions, but you only get to proceed to the next question by getting each one correct. The more answers you get correct, the more Ark Points you will get. If you miss a question early, you are free to leave, but if you stay until everybody is done, you will receive a bonus of 500 Ark Points. You will not be sent an invite if you have already hit your 20,000 Ark Point limit for the day.

    Here are the rewards for answering each question right:

    • 0 Correct Answers: 0 Ark Points
    • 1 Correct Answer: 100 Ark Points
    • 2 Correct Answers: 200 Ark Points
