On Wednesday, March 22nd, the next update will come to Vindictus and bring with it a new special dungeon, new outfits, the brand-new Alban Festival and countless improvements to make growing in power easier!

Alban Festival

The Alban Festival update brings forward a special festival for you to practice your skills with the Spear Master and Wall Master mini-games!

Practice your aim with the Spear Master mini-game, throwing spears at pop-up targets. Hit 8 out of 10 targets before they hide again to move onto the next stage for greater rewards. The Wall Master mini-game faces you off against ten rows of oncoming walls with only a small gap to pass through. Get through them all to reach the next stage and fight for better rewards!

The more stages you get through, the more Festival Trophy's you'll earn, with a Festival Gold Trophy rewarded if you complete all the stages. Take those trophies to Allysse in the Malina Inn to exchange them for special Emblems, colorful headgear inspired by the good William Tell and more!

    Will there be a list provided with the changes of all the enchant scrolls? Specially details like skill rank requirements.

    Any details about lowering equipment mastery skills from r5 to r8 ? I suppose we are actually getting all changes KR got the 11/3/2013, aren't we ? (I remember on stream Saygo/Ehgess talking about purple mats, and this update also bring out something about purple mats being all unified to highest tier. (+10, 4*, r8)

    I'm also pretty sure scrolls have been re-located due to all the changes + discontinuation of 72 ES.

    New Special Battle: Shrouded Truth

    The Alban Festival Update gives us another special team-up boss fight. The Blood Lord of Ainle was a formidable foe on his own, but can you withstand his barrage of attacks with the skirmishing Assassin Ekinar backing him up?

    (...) You can complete the Shining Keaghan battle quest once per day, and only on Hard difficulty.

    "Typo" - wrong battle name (from last patch).




    Composite Item Simplification

    We've also decided to simplify Composite Items a bit, in order to limit inventory clutter of lower-quality components. Blue-quality Composite materials have been standardized, so that all blue-quality materials for a specific slot are the same.

    Actually blue materials have static stats and stack up for months by now. You probably meant just purples, which is great change.





    Questions:
    • What can we get from the fishing event?
    • What are contents of Alban Festival Box?
    • Is Alban Festival Box an event item?

    I am going to make a list of scrolls, ranks and other information in my Enchant thread. Not sure when it will be done though, as I have other priorities now.

    20, and it expands the length of it after several stages.

    TFW you thought you'd found a semi-chill way to get your artifacts then realize that it's even worse than PvP. Mess just ain't fun.

    Agreed, this is pure awful. I've never been so frustrated in this game. How in the hell do I hit the sitting kobold at the very top of the stairs on that stupid spearchucking game? Someone mark where to aim on a screenshot for me before I put my fist through the monitor.

    Thoughts
    The Alban stuff would have been lovely if it had some competitive/party aspects in it, like who stays alive longest at the wall and who has highest accuracy on the spears. Now it's just something you clear once and don't really bother with anymore. In my case that took me roughly 40 minutes...

    Apart from that, there's a "how long can you AFK in a fishing boat" event which isn't really a bad thing I guess. You can now AFK to become a bee. Some people like that, who am I to judge. New fashion was alright though!

    And thus, we wait.
    On the next patch we wait!

    A fix would be cool, before people start to lose their items from a fail description.

    Mini-games that become impossibly difficult, a raid created by throwing darts at post-it notes and just throwing two unrelated battles together, and an afk event. WOW, now that's the barrels-of-fun content this game desperately needed.

    Apparently this change affects main materials (from raids).

    There's an issue with enchant scroll.
    I mean the description says only 6-7 ranks may destroy the weapon, but the fact I experienced yesterday was breaking my bs with stupid leopard enchant scroll which is rank 9. I've already sent a ticket, I hope you adress this issue very quick Mr.Saygo
