Chinese New Year Login
The login screen has been updated to celebrate the Chinese New Year! What kind of new things will you be able to spot in the login screen?

New Creatures

An ancient cousin of the modern pig, this swine has a prominent, horrifying mouth and sharp tusks. Different from wild boars which feeds on anything, Daeodon is definitely a carnivore. Wild Daeodon is quite an indomitable creature for adventurers to land a lethal blow, because of its extraordinary ability to rapidly heal itself. What is particularly extraordinary about a tamed Daeodon is its capability to share this healing benefit with nearby allies (RMB), making Daeodon an invaluable support in combat.

Nian Beast
According to Chinese mythology, Nian Beast appears only on New Year’s Eve. People are frightened by its horrid appearance and its ferocious demeanor. Fortunately, legend has it that one child happened to discover a very strange weakness Nian Beast has, its sensitivity to loud noises and light. During the night when Nian Beast comes out of hiding to feed, people light up fireworks and throw firecrackers, hoping to intimidate Nian and chase them away. During Chinese New Year, Nian Beast will spawn in Novice Grassland and Grassland. They are afraid of nothing but the Firecrackers. If explorers are fortunate enough to take Nian Beast down, it is possible that Nian Beast will become your tame. Tamed Nian Beast has diverse skills, frightening surrounding creatures (RMB), and temporarily casting a damage increase buff on allies (C).

Flame Demon
A demon originating from the Earth’s core, with hardened lava rocks shaping its exterior and sizzling lava flowing inside. The Flame Demon burns everything into ashes wherever it travels, posing a prominent threat to all beings. Luckily, Flame Demon usually appears only in ancient ruins and altars, and doesn’t usually set foot in other territories. It has the ability to summon a volcanic tornado, lava ball, fire beam, and a volcano against its targets, causing tremendous damage to other creatures in both close combat or ranged combat. It is advisable to explorers who want to take on a Flame Demon that they should keeping moving around to avoid being hit. Also, a reliable flyer would greatly improve your survival chance against the Flame Demon. Flame Demon will spawn in the Ruin altar located in Doom Lands, replacing Death Lord to be the guardian before Death Lord returns later.

New Subspecies

Raptor (Swamp subspecies)
The Raptor is an incredibly smart creature, inhabiting the dense swamp forest. Some of them gradually picked up the ability to hunt down prey without taking too much stamina loss, as ambush is their usual tactic against smaller creatures and explorers. They will jump out of the bush, pounce at the prey and hold its prey to the ground (RMB), immobilizing them and the explorers riding them. Good thing is that Raptor subspecies aren’t well-known for strengthful stamina, so they aren’t able to hold down their prey for a long time.

T-Rex (Golden Realm subspecies)
Although the almighty T-Rex stands on top of the food chain, it is not armed with the speed and stamina to tackle fast runners. T-Rex subspecies, however, evolves its ability to growl (RMB) and intimidate its prey, which will then be forced to running around aimlessly and uncontrollably. Tamed T-Rex subspecies will be an astounding force in combat.
