7/21/09 Patch Notes (7/21/09)
* Vanquisher is coming!
o Play as Ryan for a 50% EXP boost until August 4th.
o Receive the Storm Blade Mission when you log in during the event.
o Complete this mission to receive a 14-day timed accessory modeled after the Vanquisher's weapon wearable by all characters.
o Until August 4th, Power-Up packages for Sentinel and Viken will be sold in the Academy tab to prepare you for Vanquisher!
* Champion's Challenge event added
o Until September 15th, each week a different continent will have all its Champion Crest requirements cut by 30%.
o First up is Bermesiah Continent's dungeons.
o The event applies to all dungeons on that continent which have a Champion Mode Crest.
o There is also a small chance of finding Rainbow Potions in affected dungeons.
o Crests still must be acquired in order; if you complete a crest during the event, but cannot claim it due to a lack of prior crests, you will have to complete the remaining 30% of the champion mode runs after the event ends.
o Example: Knight's Oath crest requires 23 completions during the event, but 32 normally. If you finish the dungeon 23 times but cannot claim the crest during the event, you will have 23/32 completions once it ends.
* Rainbow Power event added
o Until September 1st, a random event will be started each day for the event.
o There are seven events in total.
o At three times daily for 30 minutes each, a rainbow will appear on your screen.
o When the rainbow appears, see Prisma Kitty in the park to receive a Happy Lil' Rainbow, 2 Gems and 2 Aging Cores.
o Prizes will be distributed at the end of the event based on how many Happy Lil' Rainbows you have.
* Always a Knight! event added
o All new and returning Knights will receive 1 Bonus Recharge, 20 Rainbow Potions and 10 Natal Rings
o New Knights will also receive 2,000 GP to start instead of the regular 200 GP.
