Journey of the Divine Patch Notes

UPDATES


Important

Pantheon Academy

• Young immortals who have just begun their journey across Aelion can now find a potential home with the Pantheon Academy system. Players that have yet to unlock their Divine Form can freely join a Pantheon’s Academy, a sub-section of the regular Pantheon, where they can learn the game from experienced players, contribute to the expansion of the Pantheon as they grow stronger, and be rewarded for their dedication!

Invasion Avatars

• The invading armies have seen the threat Aelion poses and can no longer sit idly by as we defeat wave after wave of their assault. Avatars of the Invading God will now start arriving alongside their army. Avatars are challenging battles for 10 players that award epic rewards – Most importantly the items that allow access to the Divine Specializations!

Divine Specializations

• Those brave immortals who confront and conquer the fearsome invading Avatars are rewarded with a special book – Divine Revelations. Through reading these mystical tombs, inspiring immortals can learn the secrets of the Gods themselves! Encompassing six individual specializations, players will be able to further empower their Divine Form to suit their preferred playstyle allowing complete domination of the battlefield.

Improved Ascension Atlas Navigation:

• Navigation of the Ascension Atlas has been made much smoother, allowing players to directly find specific skills, talents, or symbols in their Atlas. This negates the need to scour the Atlas searching for your next destination and removes the tedium that comes with it!

Reward Selection

• At the end of the adventure, players will now be offered the option to select from all types of Sparks of Insight, Order resources or Celestial Threads as rewards. Reward selection will always be available in massive and small battles, as well as in all promo adventures except the promos for additional limits.

• Added new Daily Promo Adventure: New promo adventure awards a Variatron - an item that allows you to select rewards in any adventure of the appropriate type. This promo adventure will appear on both Squad and Group Adventures.
• Added the third and fourth ability sets to the Market – Can be purchased with Victor’s Medals.
• Made changes to the Group Finder system: Characters with a similar amount of Prestige will be picked first and if the required number of participants are not found within a certain time, the search scope will be increased.
• New Promo Adventure added: One of invasion activities will now always have an x3 bonus to invading army tokens: Once received, the bonus will change.
• It is now possible to obtain both Tactical Sense Fragments and Celestial Threads from Massive Battles.
• Added the ability to disable Double-Tap to Dash in the Game section of the Setting Menu


World

General

• In Squad, Invasion, and Distortion type adventures, rewards no longer change after they’re first completed and now change after the next tactical situation update.

• Added Holy Texts and resources for the Rite of Enlightenment to the list of rewards. These can be received after completing adventures marked with a star.

- Added the Collecting Data task;
- Added the APS-4 Test task;

Defense of Fortifications

• Now the C rating is given if the cannon is not destroyed before the last (fourth) wave. The B rating - if the cannon still stands. Difficulty for A and S remains the same.

Hostile Territories

• The weekly quest for Sparks of Revelation is divided into three parts. Each week, a series of three quests is issued. For completing each of them, you will receive 200 Sparks of Revelation. If you have completed 6 or more quests by the time the update is released, you will receive the rewards for them when you log into the game.
• The new location now becomes available when a character has the appropriate quest lined up. Before, it became available only when you accepted the appropriate quest.
• The quest for Sparks of Revelation can now be completed both in the area specified in the quest and in areas with more powerful monsters. For example, if your quest is sending you to the Sandbank, but you went to the Second Tier of the Underground Temple instead, you can still complete it there.
• When stages are completed, you will now see a visual effect: When the required monster is killed, the Resonator absorbs a Phantom particle.
• If the Class sparks limit is reached, the reward for collecting Phantoms into Ether Resonators will be Spark Replicators instead of resources for improving adepts (Acolyte Medallion, Fighter’s Amulet, Messenger Necklace)

- The roots on the platform with the boss now trap 5 characters at the same time instead of 3.
