2nd Anniversary Costume
This new 2nd anniversary costume is designed by a chinese player, through the costume design competition held since August 2015.
Anniversary Instance: Tower of Memory
A new anniversary event instance, Tower of Memory is added. The background is similar to Mushin Tower, except there are only 3 floors and it allows a 6-man party.
1st Floor: Flame Emperor
3rd Floor: Zombie King
The clearance reward includes scorching hepta-gem box & new elemental gem box
New Elemental Gem
New elemental gems are added. The basic one grants +120 elemental attack stats.
There are 4 types of shiny grade elemental gem:
* +170 elemental attack
* +170 elemental attack + 100 HP leech
* +170 elemental attack + 8 attack
* +170 elemental attack + 122 critical damage
There are 7 types of scorching grade elemental gem:
* +220 elemental attack
* +220 elemental attack + 140 HP leech
* +220 elemental attack + 12 attack
* +220 elemental attack + 204 critical damage
* +220 elemental attack + 12 attack + 204 critical damage
* +220 elemental attack + 12 attack + 140 HP leech
* +220 elemental attack + 204 crit dmg + 140 HP leech
The lower grade elemental gem can be dismantled into elemental crystals and converted to higher grade ones. Although these elemental gems cannot be traded, the elemental crystals can be traded.
Apparently, the conversion is not 100% success. You will need some Rainbow Relic (another cash shop item) to ensure 100% success rate.
Elemental gem is also available in treasure trove. The best one are 1000g each.
