To bring an edge in terms of game mechanics, Warfare Online has decided to deliver a new element in-game to celebrate 11 years of running the server. This is by introducing a Maximum Level of Lvl 98 in 13th August 2020.
Here’s a breakdown of the update and the intentions of the game-play proposed:
Update 1: Treasure Box
24 Treasure boxes will be spawned every hour across Sainna Island, Misery Island and Caernarvon which will contain Metals including Tears of Sparda (TOS) and 5M EXP balls.
Purpose: Warfarians who love exploring maps, take this opportunity to hunt for treasure boxes!
Update 2: Bossing
Bosses in Misery Island and Sainna Island will be spawned in the following schedule only. These bosses will not respawn again once killed.
Bosses in Caernarvon will be spawned in the following locations. The Gorep King and Three Headed Queen has been relocated. Caernarvon bosses will respawn every 2 hours after it’s killed.
Update 3: Leveling
Solo and party leveling up to 97 will be much faster upon releasing the level 98 update. The EXP Ball drop rate for bosses and monsters are further improved.
A. The average gameplay duration expected for Leveling Up based on solo leveling ONLY without EXP ball consumption:
Lvl 95 to Lvl 96 – 2 hours
Lvl 96 to Lvl 97 – 72 hours
Lvl 97 to Lvl 98 – 720 hours
- Given that a Warfarian spends 2 hours a day, the number of days taken to level up from 95 to 96 is 24 days.
B. The average gameplay duration expected for Leveling Up based on party leveling ONLY without EXP ball consumption:
Lvl 95 to Lvl 96 – 24 hours
Lvl 96 to Lvl 97 – 36 hours
Lvl 97 to Lvl 98 – 300 hours
- Given that a Warfarian spends 2 hours a day, the number of days taken to level up from 95 to 96 is 12 days
C. 5M EXP balls required to level up:
Lvl 95 to Lvl 96 - 423pcs 5M EXP ball
Lvl 96 to Lvl 97 - 488pcs 5M EXP ball
Lvl 97 to Lvl 98 - 557pcs 5M EXP ball
- A Warfarian can farm or opt to buy EXP balls from other Warfarians to speed up their leveling progress.
Note: EXP gain from PvP will remain.
Warfarians, be prepared for:
~ An aspiration for veterans to guide and lead new Warfarians
~ A rise in hunts for EXP Balls as this will be the fastest way to level up from LVL 97 to 98
~ A new game-play of enemy territory raids with treasure boxes scattered in Misery Island, Sainna Island and Caernarvon
~ An initiation of battles between party’s and both races to conquer bosses for EXP Balls at a large scale
~ An increase in the number of Stalls in Mercatura that sells EXP Balls
~ A drive in the in-game economy with Warfarians prospering will be seen.
Keep in mind that leveling up to Lvl 98 is going to be a marathon and not a sprint! We intend to bring back the days when our community worked together. We believe working together by forming parties is one of the best ways to make new friends and strong bonds that last a long time.
Lastly, thanks to all our Warfarians who have been respawning for the past 11 years! Whether a spirited newbie, a loyal pro, a comeback legend, or an elite veteran, Warfare Online is proud to have all of you as part of this family!
