A brief note from Vahr

Many of you have probably noticed that the past few patchnotes have either been missing or incomplete. To be frank, I’ve been getting busier, have less free time, and have waning interest. The past few patchnotes haven’t been interesting or substantial so I opted to spend my free time elsewhere, plus other sources such as Jeezus are able to cover such updates fairly well. I don’t plan on ending my translations completely but I’ll primarily start focusing on updates that have meaningful content and translations may take longer than before. Thank you all for your continued support and readership.

Nest Reorganization

Anomalies in a Broken Labyrinth

todo flavor blast text

Developer Comments

So that you do not feel bored with repetitive play on lower flowers and feel a sense of accomplishment when you win against stronger enemies on a higher floor and feel satisfied when you get a reward from the challenge, the [Division Maze] has been reorganized as a [Challenge Nest].

In the reorganized Maze, the higher level you challenge, the better rewards you can get. The thrill comes from the difficult battles and overcoming them. I hope you’ll feel satisfaction in playing the Division Maze with the rewards that match your courage.

[Fission Maze] Major Changes

Increased Challenge and Rare Rewards

1. Changed Rewards

  • With [Maze Conquest], you can earn a reward based on the “Weekly Clear Record” once a week per account (see below)

2. Unlimited Entry

  • Unlimited entry is now available due to removal of FTG consumption (300 -> 0)
  • Gate rewards removed as a result

Developer Comments

1) When you are challenging higher floors, you will earn a suitable reward so you are satisifed. The clear reward has been greatly upgraded

2) You only need to bear the burden of repeated ‘challenges’ once a week! A rare reward is given for users who challenge the maze

3) For those who bear the burden of challenge at higher floors, we removed the FTG and entry limits so that you can enter as often as you need to. If you find it too difficult alone, I recommend that you tackle the challenge with a party of strong friends


1. Disasters and Labinia’s Warning

  • At every difficulty, there is a chance of a [Disruptive Disaster] which will attack you
  • Labinia predicts that a disaster will occur and will appear before you

2. More Powerful Monsters

  • The HP of monsters no longer scales with the number of party members
  • HP has been adjusted accordingly

3. Revive Limit

  • Zero free revives, 3 Flower of Hope revives

4. End of the Road

  • Maze length fixed to 5 gates and 1 [Final Boss Gate], which is the exit

5. Clear Limit

  • Per-gate time limit removed
  • 45 minute total timer added

Developer Comments

1) Difficulty has been increased so you can enjoy the thrill of the challenge without too much stress

2) Disruptive disasters can lead to sudden increases in difficulty

3) As the time limit is now for the entire maze, how you play in previous gates will affect your current and subsequent gates

I hope you aren’t too concerned until the main gates are beaten.

However, do not be disappointed when you don’t have much time left at the 5th gate.

Statistically, we adjusted it as much as possible so that difficult gates do not appear in succession.

Content Changes

  • Labyrinth compressed from 1-50 to 1-11, and new F12 and F13 are available (see below)
  • Some monsters are rebalanced (see below)
  • Maze added to PvE ranking board
  • Maze Core has been destroyed and you can no longer enter
  • Fissive Vortex can be refunded for 5k Crystal Points by right clicking it

Weekly Rewards

  • Revive count limit removed, now using only blue/red revives (Flower of Hope cannot be used because the systems are interlinked)

[Division Nest] Monster Changes

  • Some “normal” attacks damage reduced

  • Difficulty system is the same as dungeons
  • However, the highest available open floor is not shared with dungeons
  • Existing highest open floor limit will be approximately scaled to the new system
  • All “nest” content has this change (Division Nests, Forest Dragon, Forest Dragon Lite)

Changes and Additions

Stat Scaling Changes

1. AGI balancing

  • Currently, regardless of what class you are, AGI increases CRIT while STR and INT increase CDMG
  • This was to diversify character builds based on class scaling
  • However, the value of CRIT is very low due to the prevalence of CRIT skills
  • For STR and INT classes, it is easy to obtain CRIT and CDMG
  • For AGI classes, it is very easy to obtain CRIT but very difficult to obtain CDMG, necessitating spending gold and equipment slots for CDMG
  • The resulting imbalance made AGI classes weaker than equivalently geared STR/INT classes
  • In the short term, this could be resolved by balancing skills, but in the long term this is not sustainable
  • By this patch, CDMG now scales off of STR/AGI/INT, and all classes now have the same scaling of their main type

2. Removing CRIT from AGI

  • CRIT stats that are now missing due to removing CRIT scaling off of AGI are expected to be replaced by Hero Level
  • Hero Level 500 gives about 220k CRIT
  • Hero Level reorganization makes it easier than ever to reach Lvl 500
  • Please refer to the Hero Level revamp below

3. Other Stats (Future)

  • Due to current PvP and content balancing issues, we have deferred removing other stats scaling off of primary stats
  • Currently, STR increases STUN, PARA, and PARARES; AGI increases CRITRES, and INT increases MDEF
  • These scalings will be removed soon

This is a big change on top of the Red Lotus Palace, and I am sorry about that. However, with this improvement, we can start balancing items and classes better.


  • CRIT no longer scales with AGI
  • Classes with CRIT class mastery will be changed to CDMG
  • CRITDMG scalings have been changed


  • INT classes: 3.5 CDMG/INT
  • STR classes: 3.5 CDMG/STR
  • AGI classes: 3.5 CDMG/STR
  • Assassin: 1.75 CDMG/STR, 1.75 CDMG/AGI
  • Crusader: 3 CDMG/STR, 3 CDMG/INT

Equipment Penalties Reduced

  • Due to changes in stat scaling, equipment that decreases stats have had their reductions reduced
  • Critical reducing items (e.g. FDN Necklace) penalty reduced by 50% (-15% -> -7.5%)
  • Defense reducing items penalty reduced by 40% (-50% -> -30%)
  • CDMG reducing items penalty reduced by 25% (-20% -> -15%)

Expand Hero Level

1. Hero Level Improvement Direction

  • Hero Level originally developed as a metric of cumulative play
  • Tried to keep the gap fairly small
  • This change allows us to use it as a measure of growth insteasd of playtime

2. Improvement of Stats

  • Improved the stat gain per level to show more growth
  • +100 DMG/level
  • +CRIT/level, total 220,000 at HLv500 (with reduced growth after)
  • FD growth adjusted
  • +1% ATK%/level, 3% every 100 levels (20% at HLv2000)

3. Improve Growth Rate

  • You can quickly reach the old cap of HLv1000 now
  • Weekly Hero Exp cap raised from 3m to 45m
  • Hero Exp from clearing content increased
  • Division Maze grants a large amount
  • Max Hero Level is now 2000
