    So they’re gonna add an extra area for each of the six arcane river areas. Can’t wait

      Seems more likely they’re smoothing out progression to be every 5 levels being a new area with new mobs, rather than just adding in new areas. Depends on what the next (if any) is. If they’re doing it for every area, they’ll probably add it to lach, but it would contend directly with arcana. Esfera to moonbridge is still a 10 level gap so that’d be the best place to stick a new one.

    What are the rewards for Easy Hilla? Does she drop droplets in order to create Arcane gear or is that restricted to Normal/Hard?

      assuming you mean easy lucid, testing reveals no droplets (or VERY low chance for 1, testing every day it was up yielded none for more than a few people.), but she does drop occult bpot cubes.
