We've taken the feedback we've been receiving about the Cryogenic Abyss into consideration, and we've decided to tweak the rewards and difficulty of the Cryogenic Abyss.
Stack Up Those Rewards
The rewards have been changed to be cumulative as we've received feedback that the rewards are lacking in respect to the difficulty of the areas. For example, if you've cleared Area 10, you will receive 226,000 rupees, 24 Recruitment Requests, and 21 Elite Requests.
The difficulty of the areas was higher than necessary, as we've seen outstanding performances from previous events.
The Cryogenic Abyss is the hardest region introduced so far in Blustone, and it was not meant for everyone to clear it. Our intentions were for the highest ranking players to be able to clear Area 9 but only a couple have reached Area 8 so far, indicating the difficulty was raised too high.
In response to this, we have changed the middle areas to be a little more difficult and the final areas to be easier.
In summary of the event:
- East of Blood Red Canyon
- Only ice monsters will show up and hunters with the fire attribute will take 10% more damage than usual
- The deeper you go in, the higher the drop rate for Rupee Coupons and Elite Requests
(Rupee Coupons at max 4 times more than usual, Elite Requests at max 3 times more than usual)
- July 3rd, 2017
