[Patch Notes] v1.5 Update - Shadow of the Balaur

read it if you dont know anything about Patch 1.5

Credits goes to Cynic, Hellbound, Lightspeed and YaN
found on aionsource

[Instance Dungeons]
1. 12 various instances have been released
- These new instances all come with different themes
- These instances are aimed to give players better items and Abyss Points.

Dark Poeta
The Dimension Door in Peota had been destroyed in the past, but the Balaur's constant efforts to infiltrate Poeta eventually led them to reopen the Dimension Door and take over Poeta. This is a story about a group of Daevas who stop the Balaur's plans and save Dark Peota which is already in ruins.

- Players must be level 50+ and possess an item obtained through a quest in order to enter this instance.

- Instance can be entered by interacting with the Artifact Device in the Black Tear Swamp of Interdica, and Frostbrow Camp in Beluslan.

- Points can be earned by killing monsters and harvesting rare materials, but destroying nearby objects and killing boss monsters in the areas yield more points.

- The more points that are acquired by the finishing time, the more difficult the final boss will be. (If the group fails to progress through the instance, the group will not be able to face the final boss.)

- The harder the difficulty of the final boss, the better the loot.

- Monsters met while questing in the Elyos world of Peota can be found in Dark Peota. However, those monsters may have taken on a different form.

Battleground - Dreadgion
Elyos and Asmodian forces participate in a battle to bring down the Dreadgion.

The main objective is to infiltrate the Dreadgion from inside, destroy energy sources and eliminate the Dreadgion commander, but you must remain vigilant as you can also run into the enemy faction at any time.

- This is a PvPvE type instance where Elyos and Asmodian players can both enter the same instance.
- The Dreadgion can only be entered at certain times by registering at an NPC.

Available entry registration times

- Registration is available in Individual/Quick/Group modes. If you want to register for a new game, then select the individual register option. If you don't care whether to join a new game or a currently running game, then select the quick register option. To join as a group, select the group register option.

- Elyos players can register at NPCs Aseluse, Parasgos or Hipotades in Teminon Stronghold in Ereshuranta.

- Asmodian players can register at NPCs Buri, Okom or Rukbar at Primum Stronghold in Ereshuranta.

- Players will not be able to zone in the instance until there is enough players that has registered, so there may be some waiting time after registering.

- Points are earned when monsters are killed inside the instance and when the Dreadgion's power source 'Shukana' are destroyed.

- Points are also earning by killing players of the enemy side. When killing an enemy player with 0 points, no points will be gained.

- You will lose some points if killed by enemy players.

- There are many different routes to reach the commander, and a variety of ways to impede the opposing factions progression, all of which requires a strategic plan.

- When the commander is defeated or time runs out, the infiltration mission ends and all individual points acquired is combined to determine the winning side.

- When the infiltration mission is over, AP is awarded based on the total amount of points received, and the winning faction will receive a larger AP bonus.

- In addition to the AP rewards, some special bosses will also drop useful items.

Steelrake Valley
The 'Steelrake Valley' is the name of the pirate ship belonging to the 'Ironbeard Buccaneers'.

- Maximum of 6 players per party can enter.
- Players must be level 40+ to enter.
- Players must complete an attunement quest to enter, and can only enter this instance once every 6 hours.

- Elyos entry quest: Suspicious Calling / Asmodian entry quest: Price of Goodwill

- NPC to start quest
Elyos: Mysterious sugo Roikin (loiters at 'Decaying Tree Field', 'Revolutionaries Research Base' or 'Pwitonen Swamp' in Interdica)
Asmodian: Mysterious Shugo Uikin(loiters at 'Silver Hill', 'Kinunkarp Ice City' or 'Amsnir Harbor' in Beluslan)

- Instance can be entered by interacting with 'Hikarung' at Elysium for Elyos, and 'Midoringring' at Pandemonium for Asmodians.

- There are many different routes to go through in this instance. The difficulty varies depending on which route is taken.

Abyss Fortress Dungeon
The 3 fortress in the lower Abyss(sulfur Tree Fortress, West Sield Fortress, East Siel Fortress) and 5 fortress in the upper abyss(Asteria Fortress, Ancient City of Rhoo, Krotan Fortress, Dikasas Fortress, Ran Miren Fortress) each have their own dungeons, and many new quests involving these dungeons have been prepared. The availability of this content depends on the fortresses being occupied by your faction, and for this reason fortress sieging has become more important.

- Players of the faction currently holding a fortress can enter its dungeon by interacting with the Entry Object inside the fortress.
- Each instance has many Treasure Boxes, and the aim is to collect as many of them in a certain time frame.
- The difficulty levels of the monsters will vary depending on the fortress instance, and if the time runs out, the treasure boxes will disappear one by one or even all at once.
- Only players of the faction holding the fortress can enter.

Nohusana Training Camp
This instance is more of an Abyss Fortress Siege tutorial and is aimed for new players in the Abyss.

- This instance is available from levels 25 to 28 only. The entrance to this instance is near each faction's Abyss stronghold.
- Entrance will be granted after completing an attunement quest, then players can only enter once every 18 hours.
- To check when you are able to enter the instance again use the "/CheckEntry" command.
