[Guide] Couples System

A Beginner’s Guide to Lovers

Whether you are playing the game with a lover or even a best friend, the couple’s system has multiple benefits. Benefits range from multiple skills that can be used between lovers to an awesome bonus when you decide to grind with your lover. This guide could be your beginning to an amazing in-game experience!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*******Gaining Yourself A Lover:*******
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Becoming a lover, or asking someone to be your lover is simple. They can ask you, or you can take the initiative and ask them instead. When you wish to ask someone to be your lover, click on them, which will bring their information bar up, usually at the top center of your screen. Right-click the image of their character, and a drop box like this one will appear:



The first option is the one you wish to choose. “Dating invitation” will send an invite to your partner that they can either accept or deny. Either way, a message such as this will appear in your chat box:



After your partner has decided to accept your invitation, another message will then appear in your chat box that says something like:



A buff symbol will also appear (assuming you and your lover are on the same map, and your partner did not decide to suddenly poof away on you) that looks like this:



A heart will also appear on the mini-map in the upper right-hand corner of the screen, assuming your partner is within the small distance that the mini-map covers:



This buff benefits both you and your partner when you are on the same map, and killing monsters:



Note: You do not need to be in the same party for this buff to activate or work.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*******The Lover’s User Interface:*******
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Pressing O, as you may know, opens the window where you can see your friendslist, your blocklist, the search function, as well as your couple information. Clicking on the third tab (also labeled 5 in the below picture) will bring up a window that appears like this:



1. Luv Coins – The currency used to buy lover skills from the Couple NPC’s in the main town. Each luve coin requires an earned 20 points of fame between the two lovers, whether one spends all the time farming points, or if they split the work and each earn 10 points per coin. Fame can be acquired through multiple different forms, including but not limited to farming rare bosses and dungeons.
2. Lover Communication – Each lover will have their own little space in which you can type a message that only your lover will see. Only your side will be editable by you, and your lover’s side will be editable by them.
3. Lover skills – These are purchasable through the Couple NPC’s found in the main towns. They can only be used on your lover, and will become unusable in entirety if you or your lover break-up.
4a. Edit Msg Button – This is the button you would press if you wish to change the message shown in the “You say:” box, which your lover will see when they open their lover interface.
4b. Breakup Button – When you decide to leave your lover, you would press this button.
5. Couple Tab – In order to access this interface, you would need to press O, and then navigate to this tab.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*******Breaking Up With Your Lover:*******
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Although a hard thing in real life, breaking up with your in-game lover is as simple as two button clicks. On the user interface, as explained above in 4b, pressing the Breakup button will result in a window popping up as such:



As described on the window, when you breakup with your lover, all lover coins you have available will be lost. All lover skills that you have acquired thus far will become unusable until you acquire a new lover. Along with these unfortunate events, you will also acquire a new buff that will look like this:



This buff will last 24 hours, and is known as the grieving period. This buff will only affect the lover that does the breaking up, not the lover that is broken up with. The description of the buff, when you hover your mouse over the gray heart symbol, will appear like this:



After 24 hours (which is shown in the red letters at the bottom of the buff window), the grieving period buff will disappear, and you will then be able to look for a new lover and/or accept the dating invitation from another person.

So now that you know the basics of the couple system, get out there and find yourself a lover!


Feel free to tell me if you have any changes that need to be made, like NPC names, or information that appears wrong.

Assuming the Couples System is in full swing at the beginning of the game (unlike GF and KS), then there will be buffs available through the NPC's that will be found in Aven (the main city) which are obtainable using your luv coins. So the True Love buff won't be the only buff available, no worries.

And yes, you can lover with any gender, race or class. However, be forewarned, for CB, only the human race is available.

I hope you all find this guide very helpful =)

Yay for lover system available right away. And double yay that your lover can be the same gender. (Even though my Linkseh and I usually play M/F, it's still nice).

I absolutely love the simplicity of the Couples system. It's a heck of a lot closer to real life, where you know someone for a bit and eventually say, "Hey, wanna go out?"

So many games try to make relationships so epicly complex.

Kudos!

Hahaha so true. You dont need 24 hrs for that but at least the couple system itself is pretty straightforward unlike other games where you have to buy this and that before becoming a couple.
