But, we’ll keep it straight to the core changes and pay attention of the actual patch notes. If you’re willing to take a look at the complete content, make sure you check the official website.

General & QoL Updates

Tripod Update

The method through which Tripod Skill tree upgrades are transferred to gear has been revamped to simplify the system. Before, Skill tree effect transferred to gear, and players would then equip that gear to gain the Tripod’s Skill tree effect. Now, Skill tree effect transfers directly to the character’s Skill book. Players can select the Skill tree that they want to use in the combat skill menu (K) to use the Skill tree effect.

In the new Skill tree effect transfer method, the Skill tree effect level on the transfer materials will transfer directly to the character through a new set of Amulet items.

Amulets

  • You cannot equip Amulets, but you can transfer the Skill tree effect that has been applied to the Amulet to the character.

  • There are different types of Amulets:

  • Special Amulets can be obtained as event rewards (Wishful Amulets) or in the Legion Raid Token Shop (Hope Amulets).

    • Wishful: Increases the Tripod effect level that player selects by Lv. 5. (the selected effect should be Lv. 4 or under)

    • Hope: Increases the Tripod effect level that player selects to Lv. 4. (The selected effect should be Lv. 3 or under)

  • Normal Amulets can be obtained in Chaos Dungeons and Stronghold Chaos Dungeon Dispatch.

    • Increases Tripod effect level based on the Tripod effect imbued in an amulet.

    • Each amulet is imbued with different Tripod effects and levels.

  • When a Skill tree Transfer is complete, Amulets that you’ve used will be gone regardless of whether the transfer was successful or not. Required materials and transfer costs will also be deducted.

  • There is a new Amulet category in the Item Dictionary and Auction House.

  • The new Amulets can be auto-dismantled. New options have been added for Amulet auto-dismantle.

  • Drained Equipment will no longer be dropped, but any Drained Equipment currently owned can still be used as transfer material.

New Transfer System Details

  • All Skill trees effects will default to Lv. 1 at first. We recommend you check the Skill tree effect level before applying it.

  • Skill tree effect level can be set up to Lv. 5.

  • You can activate up to 18 Skill tree effect levels at once.

  • Each skill preset stores the Skill tree effect separately. You must apply them separately on each preset.

  • The Skill tree level in the Auction House search preset have all increased by 1.

  • Visit the Skill tree Transfer Expert NPC in any major city to use the Skill tree transfer feature.

    • To use Skill tree transfer, you must first complete Punika quest ‘Festival Adventure’.

    • If you have already completed ‘Festival Adventure’ quest, you can use Skill tree transfer immediately.

  • Through Skill tree transfer, you can transfer the Skill tree effect level on the Amulet to your character.

    • In the new Skill tree effect Transfer method, the Skill tree effect level in the transfer material will move over to the character.

    • Select the Skill tree effect that you want to transfer from the Skill tree effects in the Amulet.

    • The Skill tree transfer target level that may be reached with a successful transfer will be displayed in the center of the Skill tree Transfer UI.

    • Click the ‘Transfer’ button to attempt a Skill tree transfer.

    • Same level Skill tree effect or Skill tree at max level cannot be transferred.

    • Amulets that you’ve used as material will be gone regardless of whether the transfer was successful or not. Materials and transfer cost will also be deducted.

    • When a transfer is successful, you can use the skill book (shortcut [K]) to activate the transferred Skill tree effect level and apply it.

  • Skill tree Transfer success rates have increased:

    • Lv. 2 – 100%

    • Lv. 3 – Increased from 30% to 50%. With Sage Powder, increased from 60% to 100%
