First Major Content Update Released
The open beta for ASTA has been updated with the first major content update that brings several new features into the game including a new PvP arena, a new difficulty mode for ten-player raid dungeons and more.
Along with this update, two raid dungeons will now be playable in a new difficulty mode. "Throne of Gladiator" in the Four Valleys region and "Water God's Oracle" in the Muk Plateau region now have a "Very Hard" difficulty mode. The newly-added difficulty provides more powerful bosses that use a wider variety of skills. Characters will also be unable to revive during combat, unless through the Healer's "Revive" skill. Entry to the dungeons in the new difficulty mode is permitted once a day for free, with additional entries available for purchase using Soul Stones. Free entry resets daily at 5 a.m. server time.
