Oh, some things that weren’t in the Patch Notes that I figured are pretty relevant to the people here:
To the people who were super excited about the return to the old dungeons for the nostalgia/old music, I’ve got bad news for you. While the old music was originally there on last week’s Test patch, they’ve now replaced it all with remastered/orchestral versions. They’re actually really good and I like them, but RIP nostalgia.
In last week’s Test patch I leveled to 50 just to see what Awakening was like now and it actually became a part of the Scenario chain. After you finish it, you complete a Scenario Dungeon (which is supposed to be unique by class) and you Awaken after you clear it.
After this patch, however, they’ve re-added XP Books to the NPC shops so you can bypass leveling again. Also sold was a Quest Clear ticket which cleared all Scenarios until your current one. Because of this, it cleared the 50 Quest Chain and doesn’t automatically Awaken you. Because of that there was a new Awakening quest which required you run Abandoned Mine for 5 quest drops (drops 1 at a time, difficulty seems to matter because I ran once on Expert and got nothing and ran 5 times on Masters and got one every time), then 2 more times for 5 drops that drop 3/2 at a time respectively. It also required all of the old materials that our current quests have.
I’m unsure if this is because of the fact that I cleared Scenarios with the Ticket or if they just decided to change the Awakening Quest back to a non-scenario quest since, like I mentioned, it wasn’t in the notes. I’m hoping it’s the former because the latter would be a worse Awakening Quest than we have now. I’d much rather do Tower, rofl.
tl;dr version: old music was replaced and the Awakening Quest _might_ be more annoying now
