Additionally, you can also obtain Large Christmas Presents for LAT's at the LAT Exchanger during the Christmas Event, while they have the exact same drop chance as Christmas Presents, they will give 2 rewards instead of 1. The color of the present does not change the rewards.

Additional Patch Notes for Champions of Arena!

03 December 2019 (15:58) by Archlight Team

Under 72 hours to go until launch... and it's shaping up to be a huge new EU season! Our team is super excited for this Friday seeing how much attention the new season has already received, and we will be working exceptionally hard this weekend to make sure it goes super smooth for everyone!

We have a huge wall of patch notes attached below for the new season (these will also come to NA the same day!) but first a couple common questions we've been getting from players.

Many have been asking about what the doorbusters will be for the new Season. We decided to only do one doorbuster for this season, but it's an epic one...

Behold, the Shadow Talon!

This mount can be obtained for 8 LAT's from the Living Token Exchanger.

It comes with the passive bonus of +1% HP/MP, +8 Skill Value and +2% Monster Essence Find. Giving it a +40 Power Passive.

This mount is a cross-server exclusive so you will receive it on both your EU & NA Accounts!

Additionally, if you want to pre-donate for the season (to avoid any possible launch payment processing congestion), you are officially able to as of these patch notes going live! Any donation made will be waiting on your account ready for you on launch!

Additional Patch Notes for Champions of Arena

New Donation Pack Added For An Extra Bonus, Old One Removed;

The 3.29€ donation option has been removed, as it was virtually never used (4-5 times per season)

A new donation option has been added after 1-2 years of constant requests for a larger pack, especially after we reduced the packs by 25%. A 239.00€ - with a 10% larger coin bonus over the 119.00€ pack has now been added.
