Thank you again for your response to our first news about the Northern lands.
You have asked much about the new equipment and what will happen with the current well-improved equipment. Now we are able to answer some of your questions
The equipment will be specially designed for the northern cold: closed, warm and fur-lined. Here you can see the female Hunter. We will show you some more samples later.
Stats are the secret for now: the work is still going and far from over.
Adding of new equipment calls for great emotions, but this step is also of great importance for the future update. These items will be the part of valuable drop on the northern maps. Besides, the new equipment together with the increased maximum level will provide more opportunities for the work on the class balance. Attributes and talents are not the only points defining the character's strength. Few items with unique bonuses may bring life into a totally new talent branch.
News regarding the 65 level have already caused worries of many players. No wonder: some items considering the best now will not be the best in future. Still mind that the current equipment will remain of great use for players in the upcoming update. Why?
New items will not wait for you dangling about in Aranta. In order to obtain the 65 level equipment, you will have to fight fierce northern monsters, go down to ominous dungeons, collect ingredients - in short, overcome difficulties. The improved equipment for 60 level will make this much easier.
New items will be implemented step by step, for months - so your current equipment will remain demanded long after the game will be updated.
The update will include the improvements transfer system.
What is the improvements transfer?
You have spent a lot of efforts to improve your current item, and of course, the thought to lose it is painful. The improvements transfer system will allow you to use old items to improve new ones. Your precious orange seal will be moved to a new Northern item.
For the benefit of the game economics, the improvements transfer will not be totally for free or totally for reales. It will require gold and certain new materials. Some of them will be obtained on the Northern lands and others on current maps. This way new valuable materials will be accessible both for high-level and low-level players. In whole, the improvements transfer will be someway profitable than improving a new item.
Players will have the choice: to transfer a seal, to transfer an improvement level or to transfer both. Still, the old item will be deleted in any case - so if you choose to transfer only one attribute, the process will be cheaper.
We are planning not to delay with the implement of the improvements transfer - so that players would be able to get acquainted with the process and to share their feedback. Wait for further news from the North!
