    A new pinnacle of challenging content arrives, in addition to improvements to some key systems.


    Overview
    The next level challenge content arrives with the introduction of the Desolate Tomb dungeon. Also with the update are numerous quality of life improvements, including Whirlwind Valley changes, weapon evolution discounts, and a new DPS Meter.



    Desolate Tomb
    Desolate Tomb: The Talus Army has invaded the Tomb of Exiles to study ancient Naryu automaton technology. Available in 4- and 6-member versions.



    PvP Improvements
    Introducing weekly and Seasonal rewards for 3v3 Tag Match and 6v6 Whirlwind Valley. Whirlwind Valley premade party size is now capped at two players to improve the matchmaking experience.



    Weapon Evolution Discount
    The materials required to evolve your weapon to the next stage are permanently reduced, in addition to a new weapon path that provides additional discounts.



    DPS Meter
    Measure your damage output with a new in-game DPS meter, allowing you to see your output, and the output of your party members.

    Merges
    Hey guys, small update:
    I've merged the clan subforums per the recent server merging, which you can read about here. All of the threads in the clan subforums remain, they've just been moved into their appropriate "Group". If you have any issues with a missing thread or any questions regarding this, let me know.
    In case you didn't know, you can recruit members of any server within your group now. The dojo subforums now reflect that. (:
    In addition to that, I've removed the Marketplace due to lack of use - even moreso with the recent server merges.
    Columnist
    Our dear Columnist, Aquarius, has retired. The position is open for anyone interested. The Columnist transcribes official Blade & Soul updates to the Dojo and keeps an eye on all official news outlets for information our readers may be interested in. GM tweets, 3rd party website news, reddit, etc.
    If you are interested, please shoot me a PM. (:
    Bamboo
    I have been out of town all summer and won't return home until the 29th. After that though, we will host a Bamboo Costume giveaway for NA and EU (and for any kitties from those regions). Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks. (:

    It's been a while since I've properly conveyed how the inner workings of the Dojo are going on. Here is a rundown of what's been going on the past few months behind the scenes here.
    The long sought after forum updates
    Months ago, even last year, we discussed possible forum updates coming to the Dojo. Other Curse-hosted forums are making the move to a forum software called Cobalt. You can see it live on the Minecraft forums and LolNexus forums. Cobalt is very clean and organized and, from what I've been told, is incredibly simple to use (admin-wise). For example, installing modules like Twitch streaming, PvP leaderboards, guides, etc would be very easy if we had Cobalt. As it currently stands, I do not have the ability even create another section of the website, such as guides, due to limited access and a forum software that has not been updated in 6 years. Yes, our current forum software has not been updated in 6 years.
    I was contacted by Curse early this year with promises of the Cobalt update, set for January or February. After that, I never heard back from them. I finally received a response a few weeks ago which basically amounted to a "we didn't have enough time for it and now we have more important things to worry about" story. They prioritized other things over the Dojo's much-needed update right around when the game was released, which would have been an amazing time to update the Dojo to support our 1500% viewership increase.
    Needless to say, Cobalt likely is not going to happen. They need more development time and money than currently available for us. I guess they enabled advertisements on the Dojo for their other projects?
    I will try to work with them to at least get our current forum software updated. If we can get that, we might be able to work with them to get some mods installed and maybe I'll have the ability to actually edit the website. ._.
    Imgur
    I would like to remind everyone not to post links to Imgur, per this thread. Unsurprisingly, we are still blocked by Imgur and they are not willing to negotiate with us at all on the block. Please use another image hosting website. (:
    Bans
    I recently discovered that there is a major flaw in our 6 year old forum software. Bans that are marked to be lifted on a certain date are not being automatically lifted. For example, if you were banned from the Dojo from May 1st to May 3rd, the system will not remove your ban on May 3rd despite being told to do so. I apologize if you were caught in this system flaw, I have removed all of the bans from this year that should have been lifted but were not. If you are affected by this, please message me or email me (check my profile for more information).
    That is all I have to report for now. (:
