Addressing community feedback, the developers are exploring updates to existing content and game mechanics, including difficulty rebalancing and the much-discussed server and region merges. These changes are in the planning stages, with more information promised as plans solidify.

The update introduced the “Road to Thaemine” event, moved up to March to better support players in preparing for the upcoming Thaemine Raid. This event is designed to assist players in reaching higher item levels and includes various rewards to facilitate progression.

In addition to existing events, new initiatives are planned to support players as they navigate towards endgame content, with a focus on honing materials and additional rewards for clearing specific challenges.

The announcement outlined plans for server merges in March to enhance the gameplay experience, followed by a significant region merge in the summer. These efforts aim to create a more cohesive and vibrant player community, with details on the implementation to be shared in future updates.
