New Characters Join the Trailblazers: Blade, Kafka, and Luka

The arrival of Version 1.2 introduces three remarkable characters who will answer the call to join the Trailblazers, the courageous individuals tasked with unraveling the mysteries surrounding the fabled "Cancer of All Worlds" and Aeons. Blade, a mysterious Stellaron Hunter, unveils his backstory as the adventure unfolds, providing players with a deeper understanding of his unique abilities and motivations. Blessed with eternal life due to unforeseen events, Blade's extraordinary powers enable him to heal from grave illnesses and injuries. His bandages serve a purpose beyond mere aesthetics, enhancing his combat prowess. As a five-star Wind-Type character who follows the Path of Destruction, Blade secures himself a competitive edge by sacrificing his own HP to deal amplified damage to enemies, gaining the upper hand in battles.

Another highly anticipated character making her long-awaited debut is Kafka, a fearless member of the Stellaron Hunters. Born on Pteruges-V, a planet where the concept of fear is foreign, Kafka possesses an inability to experience fear, leaving her with a unique perspective on life. As a five-star Lightning-Type character following the Path of Nihility, Kafka's strength lies in dealing additional damage over time to enemies. Her Skill inflicts Lightning damage to multiple targets, and if an enemy is already afflicted with Damage over Time, they will receive additional damage both during their turn and after Kafka's attack. Her Ultimate unleashes a devastating Lightning attack on all enemies, with a chance to shock targets and deal immediate additional damage to those already shocked.

Following his initial introduction at the mid-year Summer Game Fest in June 2023, Luka, the Belobog-born-and-bred hero, will soon make his way into the game, becoming available for players to recruit. As a valued member of Wildfire and apprentice to Oleg, Luka combines his strength with an optimistic and carefree spirit to safeguard the inhabitants of the Underworld. As a four-star Physical-Type character following the Path of Nihility, Luka's skill deals Physical damage to a single target and has a chance of inflicting Bleed. During battles, Luka can also enhance his basic attack after landing multiple hits, increasing his damage output. Furthermore, his Ultimate not only deals damage but also grants "Fighting Will," which may increase the damage the target receives for a set number of turns, further enhancing his strategic value in combat.

Version 1.2 immerses players in an epic and pivotal point in Xianzhou Luofu's adventure. As Dan Heng finally reunites with the Astral Express Crew, the team finds themselves witnessing Xianzhou Luofu drowning in a setback that threatens the fate of the whole Alliance. The Trailblazers must rise above this challenge, overcoming a series of obstacles and venturing into two new areas: the Alchemy Commission and Scalegorge Waterscape. These unexplored realms hold the promise of decisive battles and harbor hidden truths within the colossal Silkpunk flagship, Stellaron. Players will embark on a perilous journey, reaching the core of the Stellaron disaster and unearthing the secrets buried deep within this magnificent vessel.

Players will have the opportunity to captivate him with their own stories and experiences, earning unique rewards in the process.

Another event, the "Underground Treasure Hunt," offers an exhilarating relic-seeking challenge. As players explore hidden corners of the universe, they'll have the chance to uncover valuable treasures while being rewarded with a special themed Chat Box for their efforts.
