Expedition Objectives have been added to fixed region play now, too. This allows you to tell other players that you want to explore areas with fixed levels if you aren’t as high a level as you’d want to be.

The update notice screen has seen a fix implemented regarding certain languages present in the game. This will hopefully make things clearer for those of you who don’t have English as your first language.

Finally, a solution has been patched in that means Glavenus will now get caught in traps that are set by you or other players. Glavenus had been able to evade traps up until this point. You’ll be glad to know that your traps will work now and make the battle easier. That’s a big win for anyone who had issues with this element of the Glavenus fight.

    • Unanalyzed special tracks are now easier to obtain, making it easier to lure out specific monsters and control your region levels.
    • They are also now guaranteed upon capturing a monster or carving from the monster’s body or broken part.
  • Adjustment 3: Region levels can now be fixed

    • Settings have been added so that region levels will not fluctuate, and you can explore the Guiding Lands freely with fixed levels.Fixed region levels are applied per player even during multiplayer.If you set region levels to fixed, your own region levels will not fluctuate whether you’re the quest leader or just joining another player’s quest.
      • You can fix region levels at the quest board when you select the Guiding Lands.
  • Adjustment 4: Expedition Objective added to fixed region play

    • Added a “Fixed Region” parameter that can be set when departing to the Guiding Lands, or used as search criteria.

      Use this setting when you want to let players know you’re exploring with fixed levels, or if you want to search for expeditions using fixed levels.

      • This parameter will not fix region levels.
      • For instructions on how to fix region levels, please see Adjustment 3.
  • Adjustment 5: Locating monsters in the Guiding Lands will no longer affect region level

    • The design of the Guiding Lands has been changed, as region level changing upon discovering a monster in the locale had an unintended effect.
