On October 18th (Wed), the 1.4 Update has been released on the MXM live server. Through this update, the new master Xero and the new PvP content called Hardpoint Capture have been added, along with other features, such as the Halloween event.
The first notable feature is the official release of the new master Xero. Xero is a Kinetic-attuned Assault Master with a distinct mechanism called Holo-Cube Engraving. Xero’s skills are only available when the Engraving Mark is activated, but the damage is considerable at long range, which allows him to initiate fights whenever he wants.
Even if the target is located as far as the end of a screen, you can pull the target with Engraved Telekinesis or stun with Engraved Shockwave, as long as he/she is marked with Engraving. Moreover, you can greatly decrease the marked target’s attack damage and defense or deal around 1,000 skill power. This allows him to serve various roles depending on the situation.
The new PvP content called Hardpoint Capture is a 4v4 format, and is a point-capture battlefield where players need to continuously fight to capture randomly spawned points. The mode is located under the Arena menu.
In the Hardpoint Capture, players receive a certain amount of points while capturing or maintaining the point, and the team that scores 300 points first within 10 minutes wins the game. Depending on the circumstance, players need to decide whether they will capture the point and risk fighting an opponent, or focus on defending the ally points.
In commemoration of the Halloween season, the Halloween event will take place for 4 weeks, from October 18th to November 15th. Players will see the Halloween-style Dredgion bridge and NPCs during this time.
Furthermore, the amount of exp increases by 100% in the Hardpoint Capture, and the Gludio Dungeon and Independence Port in the Timespace Distortion will open at the same time. The amount of gold prizes will increase by 100% as well. The new master Xero will be part of the free rotation in the 1st week of the event, and all event dungeons will be available.
In addition, the final stage of loot boxes players were able to receive on a daily basis becomes a Halloween gift box. There will be various rewards including Sol, Sol Fiber Pieces, Battlefield Medals, Random Legendary Node Box, and others.
Many features of the Titan Ruins have also changed. While the health of Titans slightly decreased, the first Rozark’s health has gone up by 10%, from 41,099 to 45,000. The towers and Titan Core’s health at each base have also changed.
The adjustment has been made to jungle and Titan Spawn buffs as well. The jungle buffs cannot be dispelled anymore, but the effect of reduced cooldown has decreased from 30% to 25%, and regeneration of EP and stamina has also decreased from 5 to 3. For the Titan Spawn buff, the buff itself will remain as long as the Titan is alive, but the effect of each Titan has slightly decreased.
The Titan’s Protection and Recovery Pulse, Auxiliary Skills mostly favored in the Titan Ruins, have also been tweaked. The Titan’s Protection now shields 5,000 damage at level 1, and it increases by 100 every time the player levels up. In addition to that, the skill cooldown increases dramatically from 180 seconds to 210 seconds. The Recovery Pulse recovers 100 HP at level 1 and will increase by 10 every time the player levels up.
Also, the amount of exp based on the player’s KDA in the Titan Ruins has changed, along with the different respawn time depending on KDA, and other minor tweaks. You can check out more details of the 1.4 Update applied on October 18th through the full text below.
