Greetings, Lords around the world!
This is GM Isola.

Please check the update details for November 23rd.
- We will announce the fixed date via further notice.
- Please be aware that you cannot play the game during maintenance.
- The update details shared below are subject to change during the course of the maintenance.

■ New Contents Updated! : Silent Straits (Joint Raid)

- A new content ‘Silent Straits’, a real-time joint raid where players can battle against ‘Sea God’ to purge the chaotic energy out, will be added to the World.

[Entry Requirement]
- Players can enter the Silent Straits after occupying Isola on Hard difficulty.
* The Silent Straits will be displayed locked until the player clears Hard Isola 5-10, and if the player attempts to enter the content where it’s locked, it will display the entry requirement.

[How to Play the Silent Straits]
1) Players can enter the lobby of the Silent Straits through [World > Silent Straits]. At the lobby, players will be able to prepare for the battle.

2) There are multiple ways to deploy the heroes in a party. First, players can select heroes to form their party by pressing each slot in the middle of the lobby. Second, players can form their party automatically by pressing ‘Fill Slots‘. Lastly, players can load the party formation of heroes from the last battle by pressing ‘Recent’.

3) After selecting five heroes, players can either ‘Start Practice Raid’ to experience the battle or use 2 Thalassic Tickets to ‘Recruit Allies’ for that actual battle.

※ Players MUST set all five Heroes to ‘Start Practice Raid’, and ‘Recruit Allies’!
※ At the Practice Raid, players will be able to select the elements of the Sea God that they wish to battle, however, players will not be matched with any other combatants.
※ Please remember the following about the Practice Raid.
 * The Thalassic Tickets will not be used during Practice Raid
 * Players will not receive any rewards from Practice Raid
 * Any battle histories from Practice Raid will not be recorded in Nautical Journal.

4) When players ‘Recruit Allies’, they will be matched with two other combatants, and as a result, a total of three Lords will battle together against the Sea God.

※ Sea God’s Spawn will be summoned at left, and right side of the Sea God as soon as the battle begins!
※ Single target skills (Normal/Active/Burst) will only attack Sea God, and will not attack Sea God’s spawn.

5) Once the damage dealt by all combatants reaches a certain amount, the Monarch Skills will be activated on the screen, and players will be able to use these Monarch Skills by pressing the skill icon. The total damage dealt during battle will be added up on the gauge bar located on top of the screen.

◆ What are Monarch Skills?
- Special skills that are activated once the total damage from all combatants dealt against the Sea God and Sea God’s Spawn reaches a certain amount.
- Monarch Skills are divided into 3 different types, ‘Attack-type / Support-type / Recovery-type’
- When Monarch Skills are activated, all 3 types will be displayed on the middle of the screen and each lord will be able to select only 1 skill out of 3 to use at that moment.
- Once a Monarch Skill is chosen, it will be displayed deactivated, and can’t be used by other combatants.

※ It’s important to select a Monarch Skill that is suitable for the battle situation.
※ Even though the battles are carried out automatically, Monarch Skills will not be selected nor used automatically. Players must manually press the activated Monarch Skill on the screen to use it!
※ Rather used or not, Monarch Skills will disappear after 10 seconds from activation!

6)  Battle will end when the player purges the Sea God using all of their turns OR all five heroes become fallen. However, if the other two combatants have remaining turns, the player will have to wait until others finish their battle.

※ Major goal of the battle is to give much damage as possible before battle reaches certain turn, because as turn passed by, Sea God will be purged!

[Sea God of the Silent Straits]
- At the Silent Straits, different element types of Sea God appear every day. Sea god’s element changes at 15:00 (UTC+0) every day.

Tips from GM Isola!
※ Light & Dark element Sea God that appears during Fri 15:00 ~ Sun 14:59 (UTC+0) will be using weaker skills than the Light & Dark element Sea God from the weekdays.
※ Sea God is immune to action-inhibiting effects except for taunts and action gauge depletion.
※ Sap damage deals 5% of the Sea God's maximum health as damage, up to 30,000.
※ Sea God has different characteristics depends on the element, so, it’s very important to select Heroes depends on it’s characteristic.

* Maximum of 50 battle records can be saved, and when it reaches more than 50, the oldest records will be sequentially deleted. Although the records don’t reach the maximum saves, any records that pass 7 days will be deleted automatically.
