Resolved issues

The list goes on, but these nasty bugs won't bother you anymore!

  • The detection distance of some monsters was too short.
  • Monsters for which the detection distance has been extended are mostly found in Instances, Challenges, and Raids.
  • When playing with a controller, the default cursor position in the Mirage window was incorrect.
  • When choosing items to be given to an NPC, for example as part of a delivery quest, it was possible to select unrelated items.
  • When the main menu was displayed on a low resolution screen, it protruded from the edges of the screen. (PlayStation®3 and PlayStation®4 versions only)
  • Messages from blacklisted players were appearing in certain locations such as dungeons.
  • Not all mounts ran at the same speed.
  • The running speeds have therefore been harmonized, but differences remain between the walking speeds. (In practice, only the goobbue was affected by this adjustment.)
  • When the “Sit” emote was used while fishing, the graphics of some gear were not displayed correctly.
    * As a result of this fix, the sitting fishing pose of Lalafelles has been adjusted.

  • Highlight effects appeared even when the UI display was turned off.
  • In residential areas, no error message was displayed when it was not possible to select “Go to lot entrance”.
  • In Frontline battles, if the fight ended after disconnecting the character, reconnecting when the results were displayed would prevent the number of battles from being counted correctly.
  • As part of the Front, when a familiar killed an enemy, the strategic score increased by 5 points and this action was counted towards the total of "finishing moves".
  • Under certain conditions, players with a single room could lose it by logging out.
  • In the Ixali's daily quest "Nothing Without a Wing", it was sometimes impossible to unearth the key object "Lump of Granite", blocking progress in the quest.
