A new content update hit Webzen’s free-to-play MMO ASTA today, introducing new bits of content for both PvP and PvE players. PvPers can look forward to a new battleground map titled “Dreamworld” where they can fight to capture the Sword of Prophecy while taking turns as attackers or defenders.
PvE players, on the other hand, get a new world boss to take on just west of Wado. Players of both factions can take him on in bids to earn Unique and Artifact-grade items. A “Hard” difficulty has also been added to the raids in the Mountain of Trials. In this difficulty level it’s impossible to revive without the aid of a healer. And as expected, mobs will be more difficult to defeat but drop better equipment.
A few other small changes have also been made including a bug fix that stops pet sounds from being heard when the game is in the background.
To celebrate the update, Webzen is holding a special event in which every day between now and the 26th will be dedicated to a different raid. Every day, upon logging in, players will be gifted with a Key Talisman for the day’s raid that will offer them an extra attempt on that specific raid.
A list of all the raids and days dedicated to them can be found on the official announcement.
