    The Island of Forgotten Gods
    • A new area has been added – The Island of Forgotten Gods
      • To board the boat that takes you there, you must have a Shepard Boarding Pass.
      • You must be there on the hour - if not then you'll miss the boat!
      • After 55 minutes, you are taken back to the City of Ruins. But we don't want you to be stranded there now do we...?
    • The island is filled with Wild Cats, Tigers and Harpies. They haven't had much exposure to human contact, so shouldn't feel the need to defend themselves unless provoked.
    • There are Blue Stones scattered across the island. Activate these to spawn more dangerous monsters ranging from level 170 – 190.
    • In the middle of the island, you will find a Summoner's Hand. Activating this will spawn the middle boss, Behemoth Lv. 190.
    • At the three farthest points on the island, you will find more Summoner's Hands. These shall require 10 Signs of Forgotten Gods to activate. They shall summon 1 of 6 bosses:
      • Bellatrix – Wields a two-handed sword
      • Helonia – Wields a two-handed mace
      • Julius – Wields a Longbow
      • Mark – Wields a two-handed staff
      • Gladias – Wields dual-swords
      • Demonic – Wields a two-handed axe

      • Enhanced Mach's Armor
      • Enhanced Daman's Tights
      • Enhanced Nemon's Garb
      • Enhanced Skadi's Coat
    These versions offer a better bonus on the cube enhancement along with a fixed basic stat increase relevant to your class.
    • Two new rings with a level requirement of 170 – Just like the new weapons, to awaken them you shall require the new Philosopher's Scroll. Both the rings and the scrolls drop on the Island of Forgotten Gods.
      • Ring of Horadric

    Known Issues

    Sadly, with the update we have encountered some issues. Some have been logged at the time of PTS, others today during our internal testing. Rest assured we are trying to get each and every one of them resolved but we cannot provide a time frame yet.
    • If you try and switch character, the client will crash.
    • The new architecture of Rondo contains graphics inconsistency (Building, NPCs misplaced etc).
    • After completing a run in the Distorted Dungeon though the Hidden Village teleporter, you will be warped back to the wrong instance of Hidden Village causing NPC's to disappear.
    • Rank 2 to rank 6 Amalgam and Invar no longer work. We are looking into possible solutions to reimburse players who have some left over from Epic 9.3.
    • New weapons do not have an NPC sale price.
    • The Golden Week Event is only giving 1 box per day.
    Kind Regards,
    Your Rappelz Team

    "Items will not break until +12 enhancement for rank 6 or below."
    Did i understand this correct, so i can enhance everything rank 1-6 to +12 and it won't break and only when tried to +13 and above it can break?

    Edit: Or is the attempt to +12 the one which can break an item the first time?

    I was curious about the lvl based % damage mod on a skill that doesn't do any base damage...
    But I don't mind the inc to Holy Aura much either. It's about time using something over lvl1 gets useful

    The stones with 100% success rate also drop on the island? I have farmed there for a while and didn't find any. Only the bosses drop it or is it a cs item?

    The deco items you can buy from the coin exchanger can be upgraded from basic to veteran.

    Costume Upgrade Scroll: Veteran – This scroll can be purchased with daily coins and will upgrade decoration items from Basic to Veteran.
    How do you use this, or more to the point, what can you use it on? I haven't been able to figure out its magic sauce...

    I'm pleased you managed to find that Holy Aura now does more damage per level as I was upset that Hate Aura still did no damage.

    The blue upgrade stones from the island only have a 10% success rate.

  • Gven
    commented on 's reply
    I have tried it with +22 pw armor and fresh awakened pw armor. The main armor didn't break, only the enhancement wasn't successful so far out of 6 tries. I think it has a very low chance of success since there are upgrade stone with 100% success rate as I read.

  • Reeves31
    replied
    for the Perfect Distorted Space's Armor Upgrade would that work on +22 armor with clean +0 armor with the Perfect Distorted Space's Armor Upgrade to make my +22 Enhanced armor or no? and if ya can i lose the armor if failed?
