Altar of Blood

"Like how it was introduced at the Heidel Ball, Altar of Blood is a 'defense' game mode that is played by parties of 3. After the announcement, countless adventurers from around the world gave us feedback regarding the Altar of Blood, and many were happy with the fact that they weren't forced to use a hunting rifle.
Some players said that it was too difficult, whereas some said that it was disappointing. We promise the players that we'll continue to monitor the game mode and use their precious feedback to improve the game mode over time. 
We're planning to launch more PVE content in the future. Until now, the only reason for end game gearing in PVE was for grinding. Our goal is to make the adventurers feel a sense of accomplishment from their gear progress in diverse ways."

● Adventurers who are Lv.60 and above will need to complete a required questline given by the Black Spirit to enter the Altar of Blood. 
● The Altar of Blood requires a party of 3 adventurers to enter. The party members must work side by side in order to protect the relic from waves of monsters. 

* Altar of Blood 
- Party leader can enter the Altar of Blood through the ESC menu.

- After entering the Altar, the leader may change depending on who entered the Altar first. (The original party leader can be repromoted to the leader position.)
- After entering, the party leader can select one of the many difficulties. 

- You cannot leave your party when inside the Altar of Blood.
- When the party leader selects a difficulty, it will drain 100 energy, and an NPC will appear. 
- After speaking with the NPC, the Altar will activate, and it'll drain an additional 20 energy.
- Once the Altar activates, monsters will spawn from all directions to destroy the relic at the center of the map. You must protect this relic.

- Being too close to the dark portal at the Altar can cause serious damage. You must move with caution.
- Once you reach 0 health, you can only revive through the means of Witch/Wizard's revival spell and the emergency medical kit.
- Defeating the boss that spawns near the end of each round will revive and heal all party members. 
- Once the boss spawns, the relic will stop taking damage.

- Defeating a boss will give you knowledge of the "illusion" of that given boss, and you're required to have that knowledge in order to progress to the next boss. 
- If all 3 party members are defeated, you'll fail the round. Every monster will disappear and the party will revive at full health. The party leader then will once again be prompted to select a difficulty. 
- You cannot use tents, maids, the world map, quest UI, and the minimap UI when inside the Altar of Blood.
- You will not gain any combat or skill experience from the monsters of the Altar of Blood.
- The drop rate of the Altar of Blood will not be affected by scrolls or any other form of buff that increases item drop rate.
- Up to level 5 of the Altar of Blood difficulty will be available this patch. Once you clear level 5, you will be moved outside. More levels will be added in future patches.

* Altar of Blood rewards.

    "● You can now exchange 350 Dragon Scale Fossils for a +40 Advice of Valks."

    Sorry, but itll dont work, nobody in SA use this to get +20fs because the value of 30 scales its to expensive (in SA, the value in silver is between 18~23mi), 350 scales and the price go to f***ing 231~236mi, thats doesnt make any sense, its much better if i buy a green armor TET and extract the fs for that...
    Bad implementation :/
