[NOTICE] Dossier: October Update, Part 1Notices
Hello Chasers! We will be disclosing the details pertaining to the upcoming October Update in 2022. Before we get to the nitty-gritty details, we will first disclose our goals for the October update. Grand Chase - thanks to all the support from players - has completed the Soul Imprint series, with Dio’s Dark Emperor having been released on September 13th. We’ve contemplated our future goals greatly, and instead of adding another growth level to existing characters, we are adding Job Change Heroes! These Heroes will be released one by one on a 3-week basis to ease the burden on growth materials. However, taking the current game’s content and structure into consideration, there aren’t many areas where different heroes can be effective. This has caused the older heroes to be rotated out for newer ones in parties. We’d like to change that, and we hope the new Attribute System will allow players more customization and variation in their party compositions. Through the attribute system, heroes will have advantages and disadvantages against other combatants. This ensures that variation will be necessary throughout the varying content available in-game, allowing every hero their time in the spotlight. To prepare, another “Grand Express” Event will be activated to allow Chasers to raise SR heroes to Soul Imprint Rank 10 to ease the burden on growth materials necessary. This is a rather sizeable update, so we will be covering the totality of the October Update in three parts, with links to the other two announcements at the end of this one. Other content included in the October 11 (Tue) Update will be announced separately on October 7 (Fri), we hope everyone looks forward to it. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the October Update details below!~ [Update Info] 1.
