January Update Announcement

January 3, 2024

Heroes of Arkesia,

The January Update arrives in Arkesia next week, on January 10. The January Update includes the Inferno mode of Brelshaza, Lai Lai Island - a new Adventure Island, along with a ton of quality of life (QoL) updates and balance changes. The January Update will include a new base build, which includes a variety of QoL updates, along with the balance changes from Korea. While the QoL updates will encompass the ones releasing in the fall, all of the balance changes will be included. For information on base builds and how we approach bringing balance updates and QoL updates to the west, you can learn more in our Team Update - Bringing Balance Changes to the West.

Brelshaza Legion Raid Inferno Difficulty

The most difficult version of Legion Raids, the Inferno difficulty is all about proving you’re among the best of the best in Arkesia, and earning the accompanying prestige. Rather than chasing the normal rewards of gear, materials, and everything else you’d receive in a Legion Raid, Inferno rewards instead showcase your victory with titles, achievements, Stronghold Structures, and more! The Inferno difficulty of Brelshaza will require Item Level 1560, and as a piece of equalized content, a full build set-up in the Book of Coordination. Unlike other Inferno Legion Raids that include every gate, Inferno Brelshaza is focused on the final two gates of the original raid— the two original gates where players encounter Brelshaza.

To take a look at more of the content arriving in the first part of 2024, make sure to checkout Part 1 of the 2024 Roadmap. Stay tuned for the full release notes next week, along with some teasers on our social media channels. In the meantime, we’ll see you in Arkesia!
