Azwan Patch Notes!

Image

Tomorrow will be the final patch for Justice Update which is the Azwan Patch!

Azwan patch will include Hilla(  A new boss monster) and a new “world vs world” pq! It also include the Inner ability skills!

Azwan is an ancient underground city beneath the Nihal Desert. It was recently rediscovered by the Cygnus Knights, following the attempt by its leader, Hilla, to usurp Empress Cygnus’ throne.

Hundreds of years ago, Azwan was a beautiful and thriving metropolis. The beautiful and powerful Hilla, who was a chief sharmaness, craved more power. In exchange for eternal power, youth and beauty, she betrayed her city to become a commander under Black Mage.

She took control of Azwan and used necromancy to revive its dead population as minions in her army. She lined the city with giant, magical totems to recapture the souls of her fallen forces so they could returnagain.

The obelisk that serves as the entrance to Azwan has recently reappeared in the desert and has come under investigation by the Cygnus Knights. Intrepid adventurers can join the fight, leading forces from Ereve in their battle to defeat Hilla’s army and free the enslaved souls of the citizens of Azwan.

By visiting the Mirror of Dimension, you will be able to head forth to the Cursed City, Azwan.

Occupy & Attack Solo

Occupy & Attack Party Mode

Modes: Occupy and Attack

What is occupy and Attack mode?
These modes focus on a tower assault strategy.

How do we play it?

  1. Stop enemies from progressing left.
  2. Destroy the Guardian Tower on the right to win.

 

Tips
If enemies reach the left side, the Guardian Tower will recover HP.

The Owl Tower
The Owl Tower drops rocks on you for massive damage. These rocks deal damage without regard for any avoidability or invulnerabilities that you might have.

 

How do we avoid it?
Try to take cover while they hover in the air for a moment before dropping.

The Guardian Tower
The Guardian Tower uses two powerful beam attacks that will deal damage without regard for any avoidability or invulnerabilities that you might have.

How to avoid it?
You can use your Cygnus minions as shields in this situation; if they’re nearby, they’ll take the brunt of the blast instead of you.

Watch Out!
Watch out for stone statues that drop onto the floor as it indicates that the Guardian Tower is about to release its super attack.

Hard and Hell mode
Hilla’s Monster Guardian will appear at an altar in Hard and Hell modes to increase the challenge.

What to avoid?
Avoid pentacles on the ground when it uses its storm cloud attack.

Differences
There are some differences between the Occupy mode altars and the Attack mode altars:

  • Altars in Occupy mode have a wider attack range than those in Attack mode.
  • Altars in Attack mode have an additional skill that recovers the Guardian Tower’s HP.

 

Defence Solo

Defence Party

Mode: Defense

What is Defence mode?
This mode focuses on a tower defence strategy. Prevent the Cygnus Faith Stone from being destroyed to win.

What are the strategies to win?
There are two strategies to win:

  1. Smash all of the ballistae
  2. Protect the Cygnus Faith Stone until time runs out.

 

Ballista
When you see a message saying that a ballista has appeared, keep a look out for a red dot on the platforms. This is where the ballista will appear.

Avoid at all costs!

  • You have a limited amount of time to react before a ballista fires a volley. This is shown in a bar that fills up in a display that indicates the number of ballistae are left.
  • The ballistae launch faster and do more damage to the Cygnus Faith Stone at higher difficulty levels.

 

Supply Mode

Mode: Supply

What is Supply mode?
This area functions much like a normal hunting mini dungeon.
There is no difficulty option for this mode.

Where and when do we find this quest?
Accept the quest at Longorias beween 2PM and 8PM.

How to play?
Monsters will drop Azwan Supply Boxes. Collect 100 boxes and use the portal within the map to visit Longorias to complete the quest. This is a repeatable quest on a daily basis.

Reward System

Coins and Shops

Jean Pierre

Jean Pierre’s wares changes regularly as you rack up victories in Azwan, but they will be reset to mirror NPC Popodom’s offerings when you log out. NPC Popodom’s wares do not change.

You might be able to find special recipes and new Emperor equips for sale from Jean Pierre.

Honor EXP

How can we earn it?

Earn Honor EXP by winning battles.

When can we earn Honor Exp?

You can earn Honor EXP from 2pm to 8pm each day

Inner Ability

How does Inner Ability work?

Inner Abilities unlock as you raise your Honor level. You gain one Inner Ability at Honor Lv.2, a second at Honor Lv.30, and a third at Honor Lv.70.

What does Inner Ability do?

Inner Abilities are similar to the Potential System but it is applied directly to your character instead of your equipment.

What is a Circulator?

A Circulator can be used to reset all Inner Abilities. You’ll get better results from using higher ranking Circulators.

How to obtain a Circulator?

For every 10 Honor levels reached, you can obtain a higher ranking Circulator from the Azwan merchants.

Interesting tips

You can view your Honor level, Honor EXP, and Inner Abilities in the character statistics menu.
