The location of the entrance portals for each race changes randomly every 10 minutes.


Players can use resurrection skills, summoning skills, Guardian Deity General transformations, resurrection items, mounts, and Kisks inside Crimson Katalam.


There are no resurrection Bind Points in Crimson Katalam. Therefore, when a player dies they must use Perfect Resurrection, or another player must help them.


If players use the Obelisk resurrection option, they will leave Crimson Katalam.

2. To enter Crimson Katalam, one must possess a charged Dimensional Hourglass.


Charging the Dimensional Hourglass requires using a Dimensional Hourglass item, available from Lugbug missions.


One point of charge is deducted per minute while in Crimson Katalam, and up to 300 points (5 hours) can be charged.

3. Added Crimson Katalam Base sieges.


Bases can be captured by defeating the officer NPC of the occupying race.


Monsters near a base can only be defeated by the occupying race. The range for this increases as the base levels up.


Bases level up each time the occupying race defends it against the Balaur Occupation Assassin, up to a maximum of 3 stages.

4. Added Crimson Katalam raid monsters. Spawn conditions fall into three categories: Strategic Point, Leader, and Random.

Strategic Point Raid Monsters


There are 9 Strategic Points (labeled Alpha through Iota) which correspond to specific groups of bases.


Every 2 hours, a random Strategic Point is selected. The same Strategic Point can be selected consecutively, but the raid monster will only be summoned once.


A white marker will appear for the raid monster near the selected Strategic Point.


Once a race reaches stage 3 for all bases of the selected Strategic Point, the white marker turns red and the raid monster appears.


The raid monster despawns after 1 hour, if it has not yet been defeated.


A message is shown in Crimson Katalam when the monster spawns.

Leader raid monsters spawn based on how many bases are occupied by each race.

A race must occupy at least 1 base for the monster to spawn. If both races are tied, the monster will not appear.


A message is shown when the monster spawns.

Random Raid Monsters


Some raid monsters appear randomly, regardless of base occupation status.

5. Legion Treasure Chests containing equipment will appear at certain times in Crimson Katalam.

The weapons will disappear after 2 hours, or upon leaving Crimson Katalam.

7. When bases 713 to 724 are captured, there is a chance to spawn merchants selling discounted Katalam Reward Boxes for Legendary and Ultimate Blood Marks.


NOTE: These new Blood Marks are separate from the Blood Marks earned in pre-6.0 content. Older Blood Marks are still terminated items and can be sold.

8. Katalam Kinah Boxes will sometimes spawn between two bases when opposing factions control each base and successfully defend against the Occupation Assassin.


Contents of the Kinah Box are split evenly between the group that succeeds in breaking it.

Frozen Magic Event 2019

How To Participate

Starting on December 11, Daevas Level 76 or higher can begin collecting Aetherized Snowballs!

Snowballs can be collected in a few ways—defeating boss monsters in certain instances, completing a quest, and if you’re a Prestige Society Member you can collect Snowballs just for being logged in!

Daily Login Reward

If you’re a Prestige Society Member you’ll be able to collect a +1 Snowball every 30 minutes up to a maximum of 6 Snowballs per day! Please note that these Snowballs can only be claimed once per account.

Black Cloud Marketplace

The Shugos running the Black Cloud Marketplace have just installed their new snow machine! This means for the duration of the event +1 Snowballs can be purchased individually or in bundles. Brilliant Fragments will also be available on the Black Cloud Marketplace.
How It Works

Aetherizing Snowballs

Snowballs can be enchanted by simply right clicking them. If successful, the Snowball will achieve a higher enchantment level and the enchantment can be attempted again. Upon reaching +10 the Brilliant Snowball can be opened, yielding an Icy Shard and Brilliant Fragment. Combining these two items creates a Brilliant Ice Prism, which contains a random high-valued item!

If at any point enchanting a Snowball fails, the snowball will explode with the potential of automatically granting items based on the enchantment level of the Snowball. Some obtainable items are [Event] Icy Shard, Fighting Spirit Fragments, and Wintry Coins.


Wintry Coins

Wintry Coins are a new addition to Frozen Magic, and they can be obtained from failing to enchant Snowballs to +10. Abominabelle is a new merchant that’s got a Wintry Coin collection going and is willing to trade!

The Great Pumpkin King will be hiding inside various instances. When you find him, you’ll need to defeat him by using Candy Blasts* to blast through his spooky magic in order to recover the Stolen Pumpkins. Esta’s quest is repeatable, so take on the Great Pumpkin King as often as you’d like.

Obtaining these Candy Blasts couldn’t be sweeter ­-- every 10 minutes, you will receive two Candy Blasts in your inventory automatically (up to a maximum of 10 per day). Additional Candy Blasts can be found inside Detonation Stations provided by the Candy Galaxy Corporation scattered around Pandaemonium, Sanctum, Lakrum, and Demaha. These first-come, first-serve Detonation Stations will only appear hourly between 6:00 p.m. -12:00 a.m. server time each day. Additionally, you will be able to purchase 10 Candy Blasts from the Black Cloud Marketplace (once per day) for 240 Black Cloud Coin.

*Note: Instances require different amounts of Candy Blasts depending on the group size.

Instances:

  • Infernal Drakenspire Depths
  • Primeth's Forge
  • Frozen Monolith
  • Bastion of Souls
  • The Veilenthrone
  • Herelym Mine
  • Stellin Development Lab (Easy)
  • Stellin Development Lab
  • Tiamat Stronghold

Spooky Coffin

During the event period you will find a large, spooky Coffin near the Candy Galaxy Corporation. Players with a Level 10 character or higher who try to open this Coffin will be granted a 1-hour buff that provides a 400% bonus EXP boost and 100% bonus drop boost (this boost does not stack with the Amulets).

Candy Queen


Next to the Candy Galaxy Corporation members you will find Kabe, the Candy Master. She may appear to be just a cat, but each day she will hand out a special trick-or-treat goodie bag filled with two Ancient Transformation Potion Chests to players who have a Level 76 or higher character.

Tips for Choosing Online Casinos



Online casinos offer all the excitement of gambling without all the hustle and bustle of physically being in a casino. It’s the perfect option for anyone that loves to gamble but hates traveling and being in large crowds. All you need is a computer or mobile device along with an internet connection and you’re ready to play.

Having the freedom to play in the comforts of your own home or most anywhere else anytime you’re in the mood is not the only perk online casinos have to offer. Many of them will occasionally provide players with free rounds to keep you interested along with a number of other great promotional offers.

Once you choose a platform, you’re ready to get started but there are a lot of options available. New Zealand Casinos present the best casino online, but you can also check out Zed's list with the best Canadian online casinos for more options. Before deciding which online gambling site to use, try out several different ones. This will help you find the best site that offers the games you love playing the most.

Many online casinos offer sign on bonuses that allow you to play the games for free, for a limited time, so you can see what they have to offer without risking your own money. Just be sure to go over the details thoroughly before you agree so you know exactly what to expect. You can also take advantage of the demo option to check out the site. When searching for a good online casino, there are a few things to look for that will help you make the best decision.

A good online casino will have:

  • · An easy to understand and fully functional cashier.
  • · Various ways to make deposits and withdrawals.
  • · A fully functional site that’s easy to navigate.
  • · The option of playing anytime day or night.
  • · A reliable site that provides security and data privacy protection.
  • · A legitimate casino license that allows them to legally operate in your country.

Don’t forget to check out the fine print before signing with a casino. You’ll also want to find out how long it has been in business because this is a good indicator of its legitimacy. It’s also a good idea to take the time to check out reviews to see what others have to say about the site.

These tips will help ensure you have the best experience possible when taking advantage of online casinos. Now that you know what to look for, start searching for the one with the games you love most. Once you make a selection, you’re ready to sit back and enjoy.

Upgrade Arcade Returns



Upgrade Arcade is back with refreshed rewards. Spend your Arcade Tokens and enchant the on-screen key. The higher you enchant the key, the better the rewards you’ll get at the end!

How To Play

Arcade Tokens are available on the Black Cloud Marketplace, and we’re giving all players a couple of Tokens to play with.


  1. A survey will be available for players level 76+ for (2) Arcade Tokens. This will be limited to one survey per server per account.
  2. For the duration of the event, Prestige Society Members will receive an additional (2) Arcade Tokens via survey after the maintenance on Wednesday.

The Upgrade Arcade can be accessed by clicking the smiling Shugo icon on the lower righthand corner of your screen. One Token will be consumed each time you play. To begin, click Play to start the mini-game and you'll see the key on the screen change before you. Subsequently clicking Play will continue to upgrade the key and increase the Upgrade Level. There is a chance to fail at each upgrade level, but it’s also possible to get to Upgrade Level 8 on one token! To claim your prize at any level before the upgrade fails or reaching Upgrade Level 8, click Reward and a random item from the tier's prize list will be placed in your inventory.

If your upgrade fails at Upgrade Level 6 or higher, you have two choices—claim your level 1 prize or resume where you left off by using two Tokens! The Resume icon lights up to let you know it can be used, however it can only be used once per play.

As you play the Upgrade Arcade, you will notice the Frenzy Meter filling up. Every token you use to play or resume will fill up the bar. Once the bar is full, Frenzy Mode begins and you have 90 seconds of boosted upgrade chances and additional Frenzy Rewards! Click away!

Every time you fill the Frenzy Meter, you'll fill one of the stars at the top, and when all four are filled you'll instantly receive a random prize from the highest prize tier.

Rewards

The rewards can be viewed in the Upgrade Arcade menu and are distributed randomly from the upgrade tier you end on. Remember, you can claim your reward at any time. If you want that prize at Upgrade Level 6 without risking a failure on your next attempt, hit the Rewards button to claim it right away. Keep in mind that if your upgrade fails and you do not resume playing, through choice or lack of tokens, you will only get a prize from Upgrade Level 1.

Upgrade Arcade will be available until October 23! Play now for a chance at unbeatable rewards.
