Do note that the previously refered Ark Buster (아크 버스터, akeu beoseuteo)ⓘ is equal to Arc or Arch; all three romanizations being vaible options. Flint decided to romanize 아크 (akeu) as ARCH.
The word is also not capitalized under usual circumstances.
This patch brings us:
- New stage and level cap increase
- Ally system improvement
- Arch Buster and new World Boss
- New enhancement level and Arch skills
- Improvement of various convenience functions
- Steel Giant Update Celebration Special Event
Essence Merge and Key Removal
All sub-Essences will be merged into Transcended Essences with this patch.
- All dungeon stages that previously dropped any kind of Essence will change to Transcended Essences only
- Essences are merged in a 3:1 ratio, which is equal to the amount that the player would receive by manually combining them in the Workshop
They are supposedly sent to the mailbox.
- If players only have an odd number such as 10, they will receive 4 Transcended Essences instead of the lesser amount.
Consequently the combine option will be removed from the Workshop.
Also, as previously mentioned, the creation of Transcended now only requires the corresponding Deity and the Essence+Gold cost. Keys are removed from the creation chain. Keys will overall be removed from the game and a compensation is being paid in a latter patch.
- Seems like there are new title achievements too. Doing them by the end
After ulting a Transcended, the Arch Enhancement button will unlock in the ally inventory.
The cost for an enhancement is
- Ult+1: 50mio + 70 + 10 SSS
- Ult+2: 50mio + 70 + 10 SSS
- ARCH: 80mio + 90 + 10 SSS

|« This will not be kept updated||Updates only done to its article ARCH Buster.|
The most prominent feature of the patch is the Arch Buster. Currently, he will be only usable in the new World Boss mode and some Daily Dungeon stages. Flint mentioned though that they plan to add more content where the Arch Buster can be used in.
Note that as a naturally implemented feature, Arch Buster is not to be viewed as a unit which needs to be created. Its a feature that all players will have.
MenuAfter the update, a new button, the [Arch Buster] button will be added to the ally storage. Accessing it will lead to Arch Buster menu with the current settings and equipment of the player's own Arch Buster.
Tapping the ally slots leads to the player's Transcended storage. Players can select up to 10 Transcended units to mount their Arch Buster.Combat Power in number) of the player's Arch Buster.
Allies can be unmounted at will.
Skill SelectionTapping the 3 slots above those leads to the skill menu. Arch Busters have a total of 7 skills. The players must select 3.
Each skill has an active effect and a passive effect bound into it.
Each enhancement of the Arch Buster reduces each skills' cooldown.
The table below mirrors the Korean image (players can therefore use it as a direct translation reference for the future)
Tapping the skills marks them. The return button can safely tapped then; the skills are saved.
Equipment and Enhancement
The Arch Buster features 5 pieces of equipment which can be individually enhanced. They can be upgraded to increase the Arch Buster's Combat Power. When all pieces are equally upgraded the Arch Buster also levels up (all pieces hit level 19->Buster levels up to level 19). The maximum confirmed level is lvl 48. (Flint mentioned that they plan to increase the level along the way).
(Warning: The red button in the middle of the screen is [Auto Enhance Parts] which equally spreads the resources to automatically enhance as far as possible; this can mess with players' enhance plans)
- Photoelectric Sensor
- Grants ACC
- Nano-Skin Reinforced Gloves
- Grants DEF
- Inner Beam Warp Engine
- Grants EVA
- Plasma Drive
- Grants Crit Rate
- Arc Booster Module
- Grants Crit Damage
Note that each level up of the Arch Buster changes its appearance. For example, on level 1 there is no headpiece, but on level 10 and beyond a head decoration is visible. Arch Buster changes a detail with every 5 levels.
World Boss Erebos
|« Heavy Work In Progress article at Erebos.|
Erebos (에레보스, eleboseu)ⓘ is the 5th World Boss and takes form of a space monster. He is avaible every Monday.
Unlike other World Bosses, Erebos battle only lasts for 5 minutes. Additionally, the player must use the Arch Buster for battle.
No information released on any/ resistances or his skills/special debuffs. Closer information on this next Monday, when the Boss is avaible for us to play.
The rewards of Erebos surpass all current World Bosses.
- Left column Rubies, right column Ranking Coins
Blue Erebos, Black all other current WBs
|« A detailed article is under construction at Transcended Equipment.|
There are 9 different pieces of transcended fragments. They can then be equipped to the players real equipment also through the Workshop (a tab above the combine; see image)
The real equipment will then inherit the corresponding effect, listed below in the tables. Shields can only be equipped to shields and wand fragments only to magic wands, and so forth.
The fragments can also be deequipped in the Workshop under a different menu.
|Equipment Type||Special Effect (@ +0)||Effect Coverage|
|Longsword||100% additional damage each 3rd hit.||Single|
|Dagger||100% bleed damage for 10 seconds every 3rd critical hit.||Single|
|Bow||100% additional damage each 3rd critical hit.||AOE|
|Wand||300% additional damage each 10th hit.||Single|
|Magic Wand||15% INT increase for 10 seconds every 10th hit.||Single|
|Shield||Protective shield equal to 10% of STA.||None|
|Arrow||100% additional damage every 10th hit arrow.||Single|
|Magic Orb||10 times chance to inflict 100% additional damage after a skill cast.||Single|
|Orb||10 times chance to continuously recover HP by 30% after a skill cast.||Single|
- italic written equipment are questionable. There seems to be a distinguish between Orb/Wands from Mages and Priests. Additionally, "Arrow" could be the Quiver, but all of that is questionable nonetheless. If you know, comment below.
Burning Gauge Farming
|« Article at Burning Gauge.|
With Bruning Gauge (버닝 게이지, beoning geiji)ⓘ players can boost their farming efficiency for a short amount of time.
The burning gauge is a meter at the bottom of the screen, where the XP bar used to be. It can be seen in the right image (orange/yellow). Its maximum capacity is 3000 points.
It fills automatically over the course of the day, even when the player is not logged in. 720 points are earned after 24 hours.
When full, farming dungeons will wield various boni:
- Gold acquisition increased by 1800%
- Ally acquisition increased by 1800% for S, A and B grades
- Item Drop Rate increased by 1800% for SS or higher items
- Calydon points earned increases to 8 per run
- Eligos points earned increases to 4 per run
The box which appears upon an active burning gauge (see image) also indicates the remaining burning points in the first line (X/3000).
An active burning gauge consumes 4 burning points per dungeon run. The shoe consumption also increases to 4 shoes per run.
Its activation is confirmed through the buff bar (see image).
The Burning Guage is automatically activated and cannot be turned off by the player.
Once the burning gauge is empty, the farming efficiency will drop to 1/3rd of the rate prior to this patch.
Removal of Buff Times
Buff Times have been adjusted for the sake of the Burning Gauge.
The time now starts at 12am KST instead of 11am and drop rate buffs and similar have been removed from the roster. If one takes a look at the latest KR buff scheduled, one can see that instead of drop buffs, there are now buffs that directly support the use of the burning gauge by either extending it or making its use free.
CapsuleA Capsule can be purchased (once per account) in the smart shop in the item section. It artificially fills and restores the burning gauge and functions as a support. It maximum capacity is 300 burning points and it instantly restores those points upon use. Capsules are handed out and filled through GM or other Events.
The layout is similar to old Destruction Dungeon. The player encounters 9 total stages with 3 Bosses. The overall difficulty of those stages increases with each advancement, and more significantly after each passed Boss.
Additionally, the shoe consumption starts off with 2 shoes but increases doubles with each stage.
The entire dungeon can be redone as often as the player pleases.
The reason for participating in this mode is to gain the dungeon drops "Enchanting Scrolls of Darkness", scrolls gained by the long study of the Orcs.
Scrolls of Darkness
|« We are aware of the new effects and trying to gather all possible outcomes. Help out if you can with an image album, if possible. Article Enchantment of Darkness System.|
The Enchantment of Darkness System (암흑의 마법 부여, amheug-ui mabeob buyeo)ⓘ allows players to gain multiple Magic Effects on their equipment, or damage their items as well. The system is greatly based on chance.
The scrolls are gained from the Orc's Fort game mode only and their use is limited to Ultimate enhanced equipment.
They are applied to the equipment just as the Enchanting Scrolls from the Magic System are. There is a 30% chance for success. Once successfully enhanced, the equipment can gain 2 new Magic Effects, with random values. The player can either roll the second highest (orange) or highest (red) value for that effect.
However, there is also a chance for the enchantment to fail and the Scrolls of Darkness can end up corrupting the equipment, causing it to lose enhancement status. A SSS Ultimate equipment can therefore become a SSS MAX+4 piece once the enchantment failed.
|Failed Enchant||Successful Enchant|
- New Area
- Level cap from lv.123 to → lv.126
- Ally Storage increased from 170 to → 180
- The Ally folio book has been revamped to further break down units into a hierarchy.
- All players receive 5 Ultimate Transcended Dracos automatically
- Honor Gorge further broken down
- Honor Gorge will not consist of 3 instead of 2 sections: Gorge of Challange (pvp+wb content), of Confrontation (pve content) and Guild Gorge (guild content)
- Guild Content Reservation
- Players are now able to reserve and pre-appoint their participation in Guild Content. When players see the following red button they can pre-appoint their desired party and tap the button to automatically run the game mode while they are not logged in.

What is ARCH
With the knowledge we have right now, Arch refers to two things.
- The Arch Buster, a machine mounted by 10 Transcended from the player, seemingly being used in a new game mode or a new feature altogether.
- A new Enhancement state. Following ULTIMATE it will be the next final level - MAX→ULT→Arch. The following image leaked some time ago
