Welcome to Norheim, and bear witness to its transformation. The Water Dragon Glyndwr is here to bring you exclusive information about Version 1.1.
We will be celebrating the magnificent Goddesses Festival starting on March 12. Goddesses Festival limited decorations and lucrative Blessing Chests have been prepared for you. Make offerings, and bask in the blessing of the Goddesses. Territory emojis bubbles and text bubbles will greatly enrich your interactions with other players on the World Map. We are also adding an Alliance Group Chat feature, which brings many more possibilities to communication within your Alliance. Prepare to welcome this storm of change, brave Lords!
⬤ GODDESSES FESTIVAL
From March 12 to 17 UTC, Norheim will be celebrating the Goddesses Festival. During the festival, you may obtain Blessing Chests by completing designated Active tasks (gathering resources/harvesting resources/defeating Gnomes/defeating Bosses). The Blessing Chests will be sent to you via mail. Open Blessing Chests to obtain Prayer Goblets. You can use Prayer Goblets or Gems to make offerings to the Goddesses, and receive Star Souvenir Coins or Divine Crystals in return. Making offerings will also grant you Worship Points. When your Worship Points are full, you can activate Goddess Axioms and claim bountiful rewards. There are also Secrets of the Stars Missions to take part in. Complete all Missions to obtain an exclusive Zodiac Chat Msg Box. Star Souvenir Coins and Divine Crystals can be exchanged for limited Territory Decorations, Avatar Frames, and other rewards in the Redeem Event!
(PS: All festival events other than the Redeem Event will end on March 16.)
⬤ TERRITORY EMOJIS AND TEXT BUBBLES
We are adding 6 emojis and 36 text bubbles for you to choose from, to enrich your interactions with other players on the World Map. To use them, tap your Territory, then tap the Emoji icon in the top left corner. More emojis and chat bubbles will be added in future. Our wish is to allow you to quickly and easily convey information or express your thoughts and feelings in the game.
⬤ CUSTOM ALLIANCE GROUP CHATS
The Alliance Leader can create custom group chats that only invited members can join, and appoint Admins for each group chat. Other Alliance members can view the created group chats, and apply to join them. This new feature will greatly enhance communication and efficiency within your Alliance, as well as prevent leaks of important Alliance information.
⬤ ADVANCED RENDERING
Version 1.1 brings support for full-screen bloom rendering that provides more realistic graphics with enhanced contrast. Advanced Rendering has high hardware requirements, and may increase battery drain and cause your phone to heat up. Therefore, it is only enabled by default on some high-performance devices. You can manually enable Advanced Rendering by tapping your Avatar > Game Settings > General Settings, and enabling the Advanced Rendering toggle. If you do not see the Advanced Rendering option, it means that Advanced Rendering is not currently supported on your device. Advanced Rendering will be supported on more devices soon, so stay tuned.
The Mayor position is coming to Cities. Mayors are similar to the Governors of Provincial Capitals. By default, the Alliance Leader of the Alliance that has occupied the city will be appointed the Mayor, and can enjoy special boosts. In addition, the location of the button to the Official Posts interface has now been standardized, and can be found above the Occupation Bonus.
⬤ MARKET REFRESH MECHANISM DETAILS AND IMMORTAL PREVIEW
To give a transparent explanation of the Market refresh mechanism to all Lords, a complete guide to the refresh rules and rates has been added to the top right of Merchant Phillip on the Market interface. In the Market, tap an Immortal Fragment. When the Purchase interface pops up, tap the Immortal Fragment again to view that Immortal's information panel to view their Skills and Attributes.
⬤ ALLIANCE INTERNAL RANKING
The button to the original Alliance Ranking will now redirect you to the new ranking that records Alliance members' Activity and Contribution, making it easier for Alliance admins to keep track of the Alliance's Activity and Contribution status. You can still find the button to the original Alliance Ranking on the Lord Info panel.
⬤ MYSTERIUM GUIDE
We have added a detailed Mysterium Guide in the lower left corner of the Mysterium interface. In the Guide, you can read about the Mysterium's lore, basic rules, enemies, and items, to help you gain a better understanding of that strange realm.
⬤ ALLIANCE GIFTS
A new Gifts button has been added to the Alliance interface. Tap it to open the Gifts interface, where you can view and claim your Alliance Gifts in one place. Alliance Gifts will no longer be sent via mail, reducing pressure on the Alliance Mail channel, and increasing the efficiency of communication.
⬤ DAILY MISSIONS
New mission to defeat Bosses added.
⬤ ALLIANCE HELP HINT
A guide to the max Help chances has been added to the Alliance Help interface. The number of Help chances increases with your Castle Level.
⬤ RALLY REVENGE
A Revenge button has been added to the mail sent when you are defeated by a Rally, helping you to pursue the enemy who started the Rally to the ends of the earth.
⬤ PREVIOUS KINGS
The names of all previous Kings will be added to the World Heart's King information interface. Tap the Info button on the lower left of the King's avatar to view the list of previous Kings.
⬤ WISHING FOUNTAIN DESIGN OPTIMIZATIONS
A comprehensive upgrade of the Wishing Fountain's art design brings you a more dreamy and more sacred Wishing experience.
⬤ AUDIO OPTIMIZATIONS
Improvements to both music and sound effects will create a more pleasant listening experience, helping to immerse you in the fierce battles and tranquil moments of Norheim.
⬤ SERVER MIGRATION RULES
Servers in the Open status after completing the Contention of Relics now allow Lords with a max Power reached of 2,000,000 to migrate to them, up from 1,000,000 previously. With more lenient migration requirements, we hope to satisfy the migration requests of more Lords while maintaining the right balance on the various servers.
⬤ FORBIDDEN ZONE SOVEREIGN TERRITORY DECORATION
In the Kingdom that wins the Contention of Relics, the Alliance that ranks first in Energy Cubes obtained must now also obtain at least 200,000 Energy Cubes to obtain the Forbidden Zone Sovereign Territory Decoration. The stricter requirement makes obtaining this territory decoration more prestigious.
⬤ IMMORTAL SUBSTITUTION
After serious consideration, we have decided to withdraw Solomon from the game. All Solomon Soul Crystals will be substituted with Edward Soul Crystals, and all resources spent on upgrading Solomon will be refunded. Edward is a powerful Fire Ranged Bowman whose skill can increase Physical Damage and Attack Speed for 6 seconds.
To balance the difficulty of the Mysterium, all enemy Immortals in the Mysterium will be equipped with the Aura skill Wither, which reduces enemy healing effects by 50% at the start of battle.
⬤ WORLD MAP CITIES
Wall Defense has been adjusted to balance the frequency of occupations in Norheim, and to prepare for the cross-server Alliance Arena game mode that is currently in development.
That's all the changes coming with the 1.1 update. Before the altar of the Three Goddesses of Norheim, we have already polished the wares, lit up the stars, and started the bonfire, and are patiently awaiting your arrival.
