Check out the new items and system changes coming July 24

The Blade & Soul: Roots of Malice update will hit the servers on July 24, and we’ve included some changes to the game that will help improve your experience with the latest content. Full details will be coming with the Patch Notes on July 23, but for now, here’s a small taste of some of the changes that will be included with the upcoming update.

Systems Changes

New Shackled Isle Season

Shackled Isles Solo Mode will no longer be available but the new season for the Shackled Isles 3-player team mode will start on July 31. Entrance to the battlegrounds is on a set schedule, which has not been changed.

We’re also reducing the amount of Shackled Isles Coins required to exchange for a Hexagonal Dueler Garnet or Hexagonal Dueler Obsidian from 150 to 55.

Language Setting

European players can soon toggle the option to display only their client language in all the chat channels.

Item Changes

PvP Equipment Transfer

We’ve made some changes that will now allow players to transfer their PvP weapons to other characters on the same account. However, because PvP weapons are class specific they’ll need to be resealed before they can be transferred.

Resealing weapons will require five (5) Brilliant Sealing Charm Fragments, and must be Stage 3, 6, or 9. Once resealed, the weapon can then be transferred to another character on the same account using the mail system, for a small fee.

Tidal Talisman Psyche

We’re adding the new Tidal Talisman Psyche, which can be used to augment a Legendary Talisman. Costs and augment abilities are below. The Tidal Talisman Psyche can be transmuted using 25 Pet Packs and 500 gold.
