Echo of Soul is about to get a new patch, full of new events and items. The patch notes were just released, and they are full of new and returning events.
With this patch, there will be a total of four events, which three of those are only temporary. Primarily, we have the Leveling Event. This event was in the game previously, and is now a permanent addition to the game which will make your under-level 70 character(s) reach that level faster while getting rewards to boot.
Quest objectives are reduced (e.g. “Kill 12 monsters” now becomes around 4 monsters) and every 10 levels your character will get gear in the mailbox for that class. After helping Mnemos, you’ll receive New Soulkeeper’s Blessing for 30 days, which grants you a buff to damage, EXP, Gold, and Hero Badges. With this buff, you also get an extra pack with seven Swift Growth jewels.
When you manage to reach level 55, a pack with seven Wild Growth jewels will be available to pick up in your mailbox, and finally, at level 70 you’ll receive a Max Level Pack that contains a Vivid Jewel Booster Pack, 10 Digestant, and Chocolate Heart, 40 Hearty Beef Curry and a Courageous Elegant Support Equipment. At that level, you have the opportunity to speak with the NPC Elijah in Bernicia, Ignea, or Redvale and she’ll give you an extra Vivid Jewel Booster Pack.
The following Events will only be available from November 23 until December 14, so be sure log into Echo of Soul and enjoy them until the end!
Dimensional Rift Event
This will be a new event, and it will happen in the two level 70 Hunting Grounds. To participate in this event you have to open a box that spawns in The Hintervale and Sunset Vale, four times a day for only one hour. Once you open the box there will be three possible outcomes. The first outcome is a monster will spawn, and along with his minions will try to kill you, but if you manage to kill him, a Piercing Elixir will be awarded for the whole party. The second will result in a solo monster spawning, and defeating him will reward you with 5 Magic Eggs. The third and final outcome is a chest with a box inside, which gives one out of the 21 random items for you to take.
PvP Battlefield Event
To enter this PvP event, you must travel to Bernicia, Ignea or Mnemos and seek the NPC Lloyd. He will have two Quests to give you for this event. One quest is daily, and to complete it you need to finish the Battlefield three times, rewarding you with 75 Courage Fragments. The second quest can be repeated as many times as the player chooses, and to participate you need to activate the new special energies in the Battlefield five times, eventually rewarding you with five Courage Fragments. These fragments can be transformed into a Courage box after 20 have been collected, containing the same loot as the box acquired from the chest in Dimensional Rift Event.
Out of the 21 items in the box, one will be randomly selected. Remember, the second quest can be repeated as many times as you wish, so there is no limit to the number of boxes you can create and open with Courage Fragments.
Gem Enhancement Event has been in Echo of Soul before as well. Yet this time, there will be new achievements just for this version. Someone who successfully enhances a vivid jewel from +6 to +7 gets an additional +7 jewel, along with a Superior Safeguard for that level and the same goes for a +8 jewel. In addition, each jewel has its own achievement, therefore you can only receive the rewards once for each grade/type. Players who did this before have to do it again; therefore they will not get the achievement automatically when the patch goes live.
With the coming of the Urban Magic Lamp, there are new mounts, pets, and costumes available as part of the cash shop updates.. With it will come new items in the in-game shop and dungeon tickets.
