This is PD Jin.
I’m sure Raiders have been worried and upset by the news of the no future updates for 1st Chronicle. But we are continuously developing 2nd Chronicle though it will take some time. We’ll be back with good contents soon; we greatly appreciate your patience.
There will be a lot of fundamental changes for 2nd Chronicle, and we will guide you through various information in the future.
In this Developer’s Note, we’re going to talk about two of the key changes in 2nd Chronicle.
[Systems that will be changed]
1. Removal of Hero Awakening / Transcendence
1*~5* Awakening / Transcendence systems have lost its meaning due to long-term service.
Most of the Raiders have abundant amount of Awakening / Transcendence materials. Awakening / Transcendence lost its sense of achievement, rather it became a hassle to 5* a hero. In addition, early game balance, which was designed based on 1*~5* Awakening system, collapsed due to giving out 5* heroes at the start, effectively taking the fun away and making the early game a dull experience.
The Awakening and Transcendence System, and all the contents of Hall of Heroes will be removed and related items such as Fragments/Essence and Stone of Infinity will also be removed.
Previously, you couldn’t use the hero unless he/she was 5* and 5 Transcended. In the future, the hero himself/herself will be powerful enough.
2. Unique Treasure, Skill Attributes, and Skill Consolidation
Looking back at 1st Chronicle, we wish that Unique Treasure, Transcendence Attribute wasn’t each separate attribute.
Unique Treasures provides an upgrade to a skill, but only one skill upgrade can be applied, making Additional Options the main focus since Additional Options are all applied.
Upgrades to skills in Transcendence Attribute is also difficult to see at a glance due to Skill and Transcendence Attribute being separated.
Therefore, we decided to integrate Skills, Unique Treasure, and Transcendence Attribute into one skill.
When integrated as mentioned above, with Awakening and Transcendence system removed, the additional ATK, DEF, and HP in Transcendence Attribute will also be removed.
The new Skill UI changes will include all three attributes, Transcendence Attribute and Unique Treasure will be converted to new integrated skill points.
UI for Unique Treasure in Equipment will be removed and Transcend tab in Heroes Info will also be removed.
There will be many other changes, which will be explained in a timely manner.
[New King’s Raid logo]
Lastly, here is the first information of 2nd Chronicle, the new logo.
The new logo symbolizes Wings of Freedom of the Resistance 2nd Chronicle. In the game, you can see that the related patterns are shown on future hero’s clothes, but the wings of the pattern on the clothes are folded. In the logo, the wings are spread expressing the future aim.
As we mentioned in the previous Developer’s Note, the subtitle of 2nd Chronicle is <The Great Empire>. It symbolizes the story of the empire and the protagonists covered in darkness. Before the name was confirmed, we thought of Black Empire, but it was somewhat too dark, and the word ‘black’ was not closely related to the whole story of 2nd Chronicle.
We understand that many users have been disappointed and deeply concerned about the possible end of the service after the notice of stopping updates for 1st Chronicle. Please note that 2nd Chronicle is actively being developed, and we will be sure to show you more fun and high-quality game. In the next Developer’s Note, we will prepare 2nd Chronicle in game resources currently under development.
We are always grateful for your support.
We will do our best to repay your love with more fun game.
