New Battle System: Legion

  • Overview
  • Legion is a new battle system intended to challenge high-level adventurers in alliances of eighteen to thirty-six combatants. Legion will feature unique battlefields in which combatants will be pitted against legions of formidable high-level notorious monsters (HNMs). Slay as many foes as possible within the thirty-minute time limit to reap a host of exciting rewards!
  • Requirements
  • Main job of level 75 or above
  • Three to thirty-six participants
  • Participating in Legion
*Only one representative from your alliance need possess this key item.
  • With the key item in your possession, speak to Mayuyu in the same area and choose your desired battlefield and capacity (eighteen or thirty-six combatants). After your selections are confirmed, you will receive a Legion Pass.
*As a single Legion pass can transport up to eighteen players, larger groups will receive two passes.
*Legion passes will be valid for five minutes (Earth time) after issuance.
  • Have your alliance leader trade the issued pass to the Legion Tome to enter the Legion entrance lobby.
  • Make sure to configure your alliance as desired before trading the pass. Should any members be lower than level 75, your alliance will be refused entry.
*For groups larger than eighteen, it will be necessary to trade the extra Legion pass to the leader of your second alliance or party.
  • From the lobby, examine the Legion Portal or simply wait for the allotted time to elapse. You will be transported to the battlefield to commence the fight!
  • Spoils of War
  • Each HNM defeated will yield items and Legion points.
  • Items will be placed in a treasure pool to be lotted on by all participants.
  • Loot quality and Legion point rewards will increase the more foes you slay.
  • Legion points may be redeemed with Saarlan for a variety of rewards.
