Very interesting patch that the Koreans added. One thing that stood out for me was the mentioning of New York & Vancouver opened for town bid. Knowing the English AO version, Vancouver does not exist as a town yet. So, more towns heading our way? Maybe I should (or someone else) find their previous patches to learn more. I also noticed that there will be some buffing on the some of the low level bosses, which I believe will be nice and would promote greater challenge for players. The last thing I would like to mention about is the birthday system, which seem reasonable. More perks for high level players I suppose.
