New Additions and Optimizations
1. Added the adventure The Trembling Highlands to the Trials of God feature. Players can unlock this adventure by completing Stage 31-60 of the campaign and by completing 100% of the same adventure found within the Wandering Balloon.

4. Added the new “Fabled Realm” feature to the Twisted Realm. Players that meet the Resonating Crystal level requirement are able to enter the Fabled Realm. All members within the Fabled Realm shall have a division status of “Legend”.
5. Adjusted the floor hierarchy logic for several floors of the Twisted Realm, as well as the damage and reward logic. As this is a big change, we shall be resetting the division damage data for all Twisted Realm bosses. After the reset, dynamic damage division shall be in effect for the first time each boss appears, after which the rules shall revert back to normal.

Players with active subscriptions shall receive +100% rewards instead of +80% rewards for the next Dismal Maze if they miss an Arcane Labyrinth, the total number of times missed rewards can be accumulated does not change. Players with a VIP level of 13 or higher will have an additional chance to accumulate missed rewards if they miss Arcane Labyrinths.
9. The number of times Dura’s Tears can be used within the Dismal Maze shall now be raised in accordance with how many times the Arcane Labyrinth has been missed.
10. Players shall now receive 10 Companion Points each time they successfully loan out a hero as a mercenary. Players can receive a maximum of 50 Companion Points per week using this method.

Hero Adjustments and Changes
1. Grezhul – The Corrupted
Adjusted how the Attack Rating of the ability” Demonic Assault” is calculated. When stealing Attack Rating from a target, the full value stated by the ability is now stolen, ignoring any Attack Rating debuffs that the target may have currently been affected by.
2. Ferael – Doomwhisper
Strengthened the values of the Exclusive Furniture Ability “Ghastly Hauntings. Please see the in-game skill description for specifics.
3. QUEEN – The Courageous Tactician
Fixed an issue that would sometimes cause the final attack damage of “Stationary Drifter’ to be lower than intended.
