      Generally KMST patches show up a week before the expected official launch date. So the best guess is august 11-18.

    • Max
      July 28, 2016 at 3:53 pm

      Yeah probably like a week in advance.

    I’m a little confused about arcane symbols. How many of them can you have activated at same time? If only 1, why bother leveling the old one if chuchu island one is better? Can you explain Max?

    So did they change Lehellon to Lacheln? I remember it being called Lehellon somewhere.

    • Max
      July 28, 2016 at 3:53 pm

      Lol yeah I translated it as Lehellon at first but Spadow used Lacheln which sounds much cooler so I’ll be using it until the world map confirms what it actually is 😛

      • July 28, 2016 at 6:51 pm

        Lacheln it is.

        Now to figure out how you pronounce “Lacheln”…

        • Max
          July 28, 2016 at 7:20 pm

          The Korean is pronounced something like le-hel-en (hence me writing it as Lehellon before).

    • Anonymous
      July 28, 2016 at 4:25 pm

      that was just the preliminary translation. 레헬른 also looks like 레헬론 so that may explain the o.

      Also Lächeln means smiling/smile, so the smiling city of dreams is a rather fitting name given chewchew islands bright and cheery appearance.

    I posted a question on last blog right when you posted this new blog so the last one might not be seen. my question was:

    On previous posts, it was mentioned about character cards stats being changed, removed, etc. Was there such change besides DEX card obtained from bowman? I’m interested to know so I could make some other chars worth of getting stats from those character cards.

    • Max
      July 28, 2016 at 3:52 pm

      Bowmaster/Wind Archer – +2/4/6/8% ACC -> +10/20/40/80 DEX
      Dual Blade/Night Walker – +2/3/4/5% AVOID -> +10/20/40/80 LUK
      3 Thieves – maximum critical damage -> critical damage (same values)
      EunWol – minimum and maximum critical damage -> critical damage (same values)

      • Anonymous
        July 28, 2016 at 7:17 pm

        In other words, things that gives acc turned into dex, avoid into luk, right? is that logic found on potential lines as well?

        • Max
          July 28, 2016 at 7:19 pm

          For potential, I believe +accuracy turned into +speed, +avoid turned into +jump, and +%accuracy/avoid were changed randomly into % stat, % HP, or % MP.

    Max, have you ever experienced the soul weapon option disappearing from a weapon? I’ve got some magnificent souls during the 5x chance event, used the enchanter on my weapon (70% one worked) and added Arkarium. Everything worked fine, but after a relog it disappeared (both soul and the slot for it on my weapon). I’m sure there was no rollback, as I cubed some of my equipment and they are untouched.

      Nope, only non-Superior items.

      Yep, they implemented it in this patch and due to the delay in adding it, they gave all characters created before this patch +32 in all slots except storage.
