As announced a little less than a week ago, Blade & Soul launched its Grim Tidings update today, introducing the Blade Dancer’s third specialization, The Way of the Grim Blade. A new dungeon, House of Idols, is available as is the Ebon Realm hunting zone, and new legendary rings and gloves.
The update also kicks off the Season of Giving event in celebration of the holidays. During the event, players collect Snow Globes by completing daily challenges and earn Giving Keys via dynamic quests in specific dungeons. Exchange the gloves for Frozen Gift Boxes and use the key to open holiday gift boxes. Details on exactly how to earn each of these rewards and what they can be exchanged for have been laid out on the Grim Tidings Event preview page on the Blade & Soul site.
