A vitality system that provides bonus experience during hunting has been added.
Vitality Points can be acquired when your characters are offline, in a peace zone, or hunting Raid Bosses.
When you accumulate Vitality Points and raise your Vitality Level, the bonus experience points that you acquire increase in proportion to your Vitality Level.
When you obtain experience points by hunting regular monsters rather than bosses or raid monsters, Vitality Points are consumed.
You can check your character's Vitality Level by vieeither your Status Window or your Character Status Page.
There are four levels of vitality:

Masterwork Weapons may be converted into Kamael-exclusive weapons and dual-swords.
New Weapons, Armor, and Accessories
Common Items have been added up to A-grade. These items have the same stats as Superior Items, but they cannot be enchanted, enhanced, or augmented. They can be purchased at shops or obtained through hunting regular monsters.

Fame can be obtained through various activities such as advancing onto a registered battlefield (a castle siege, fortress siege, or hideout siege) and defeating an enemy.
The best scores by ranking are registered at the Festival of the Darkness, and if your affiliated clan is victorious, you receive a certain amount of Fame from the Festival Guide as a reward.
You can obtain Fame by consuming a Noblesse gate pass through the Olympiad Guide.
Fame is consumed when using various abilities through the "Fame Guide" who is located in the Town of Aden and Rune Township.
There is a limit to how much Fame a character can earn. Once the cap is reached, no more Fame will be earned.
Superior and Masterwork top-tier A-Grade weapons and armor have a PvP augment option that can be purchased with Fame. (This makes the weapon and armor no exchange/no drop.) In addition, once the item has been specialized, you can no longer refine, crystallize, convert or add an attribute to it. Enchanting, however, is still permissable.
Consumables and talismans of each type (including those for class use) that are needed on the battlefield can be purchased with Fame.
A character that is registered on the designated battlefield does not incur any Exp. penalty upon death; however, a death on the registered battlefield reduces some stats for a certain amount of time.
