  • New costume added for Red Widow's appearances post-revival.
  • Fixed Ghost Widow Etherealise not properly targeting.
  • General power tuning to have NPC versions of Arachnos mobs more closely mirror VEAT Arachnos Widows.


Axis America

  • Restored original costumes to all enemies in this faction to visually distinguish it from Council Empire mobs.


 Yep, definitely bad guys.

Hamidon Yellow Mito appearance is crisp and clear, greatly appreciate the change especially when targeting. Did the blue and green get this effect?



For anyone interested:


Hamidon - Semi-translucent and purple exterior sphere




Mitochondria Electrolytes - Rather hard to see in the image, but much larger blue semi-translucent sphere.




Mending Mitochondria - Smallest, semi-translucent green sphere




Mitochondria Antibodies - Unique yellow sphere with cone patterns originating from the main body.

Running around in Atlas Park getting for a feel of some of the new sets + testing out sybil robes, I can say that the Tesla Knights I encountered were definitely using their Lightning Field, so that's working

  • Tarantula Mistress Mental Scramble is no longer autohit.
  • Tarantula Queen Scramble Thoughts is no longer autohit.


Wait, what? The 'wreck your defense plus blind' power, the main reason I always first-target Tarantula Mistresses, was an autohit?

Tanking is only half the battle. The other half...
