About time they released this patch. After the long wait, Aswan is finally released!
It turned out Aswan is different from what we previously thought, it’s not a new area. It’s actually a party quest, and it’s a party zone! There are a number of things related to Aswan that I want to discuss, so read on~
CREDITS TO LEAFRE.NET FOR ALL THE IMAGES!
First off, it can be accessed through the Dimensional Mirror. The icon is just a place holder, don’t worry it will be replaced soon.
Now, the party quest has 6 level ranges; level 49-79 (Easy), 80-119 (Normal), 120-159 (Hard), 160-200 (Hell). You can either go with a party or alone (which would be a dumb move, it’s a party zone).
Those modes can be broken down into 2 modes, Attack & Occupy (and maybe also Defensive).
Here are the maps involved in the party quest:
Another thing you can get from Aswan is Aswan Coins. Right now, their icon is the same as the Sports Coin (placeholders again). You may have noticed your stats window changed:
Most notably, Inner Ability was added. You can get up to 3 of the following permanent buffs:
Weapon DEF: +10~400.
Magic DEF: +10~400.
Weapon ATT: +3~30.
Magic ATT: +3~30.
Critical Rate: +1%~30%.
All Stats: +1~40.
Attack Speed: +1.
Weapon DEF taken from Magic DEF or vice versa: 1%~10%.

Amount taken from one stat and put into another: 1%~10%.
(^Only works for STR <-> DEX, INT -> LUK, DEX <- LUK)

How does it work? If you look at the stats window shown at the top, you probably have noticed that there’s something new under the EXP. That number, which is 1, is the Honor Level. The thing below it is its EXP. You need to level it up if you want good Inner Abilities.
Inner Abilities work like hidden potential. Once you got your Honor Level to 2, you get a random ability. Two more will be unlocked when you hit level 30 & 70, but they’re random. You also get scrolls from raising your Honor Level, and they can be used to reset your abilities.
You also noticed that I had ~’s up there. That’s because you also need to ‘raise its level’ by earning coins and buying scrolls.
That’s pretty much all I have to say… A couple of other things:
- Crystal Gardens has a map:
- In case you care, the FTP’s were changed for both KMS and KMST. New ones:
<Change it to your version>
There is more to come. This is just the PQ, but General Hilla will also be released soon.
^This is the gate to leads to her map.
^The eyes of General Hilla.
I know there’s more to come since there are two groups of objects for Aswan, battle & inside. Those will be released soon~!
Oh and there’s also some Arbeit thing in the WZ which I ignored (which is some part time job thing). I wouldn’t worry about it for now, let’s just wait till it’s released.
