We've seen a lot of buzz going around by the Shaiya Korea Ep6 details floating around, and we're just as excited as you are
Keeping that in mind though, it's important to remember:
- The Korean version of Shaiya will be updated before our version, as always
- Content that comes to Shaiya Korea won't necessarily make it to our version of Shaiya-- This is often based on player feedback
- We have another conference call scheduled with Nexon this week to discuss balance/fixes and Episode 6
- We are still targeting a 2012 launch for Episode 6, and believe that we'll have the update before the end of the year
We have listened to your feedback, read the threads, and have come to understand that one of the biggest concerns about the upcoming content update is the idea of re-investing in a new gear set. Fortunately, there are two truths to help:
The program is called the "Trinity Transfer Token Program". Here's how it works:
- The new content does not have a date for the US yet
- Our team has quickly worked on a program to help your gear retain value for the future, for when the new gear sets do roll in eventually
- You can earn Trinity Tokens through special promotions starting right away
- A Trinity Token will represent a piece of gear (such as boots, tops, gaunts, etc) from the FIRST new set
- When the new gear is eventually released, you may place your Trinity Token and your old gear piece (must be 70 AP gear or ROTCO gear) in your warehouse and send a ticket to the GM Team
- The GM Team will provide you with:
- The new version of the same piece, clean (ie: the new boots, top, or gaunts), will be placed in your bank
- All the lapises you had linked before to the old piece will be placed in your bank
- 10 Power Lapisia, 10 Defense Lapisia, and 20 Rec Runes will also be placed in your bank
We hope everybody will get the chance to keep their gear at high value while we anxiously await solid details from Nexon on content delivery plans for the future of Shaiya US!
Want to retain the value of your existing gear sets, and keep all your lapises too? READ THE ABOVE POST FOR INFORMATION!
Episode 6 is expected to be released on the US servers in Q3/4 of this year.
