This mode is restricted to level 40 and above players. Players can find this new zone to the west of the Exharhn Badlands cemetery.
New Solo Dungeon
The update will feature A new dungeon named Ellora’s Spire. This new dungeon is exclusively single player for level 50 or above players.
The new dungeon has 30 floors with a boss for each floor. Players will only be able to access Ellora’s Spire once per day and players have a limit of 40 minutes to complete their attempt.
Nexon has confirmed that a ranking board will determine how players will rank in accordance to their score.
Cross-server Dungeon Lobby
This new addition to the game allows players to find party members from any server. Hence, players can join parties with anyone before delving into any multiplayer dungeon in the game. Therefore, the new system should allow players to find groups faster
Finding the Transit Shrine located near each dungeon in the game is mandatory for accessing this area. Because the Transit Shrine takes players to the cross-server lobby associated with that dungeon so players can quickly find a group for that dungeon.
