Credit to the Build Team for the spectacular work on all new challenge boss arenas!
Enderius Arena featured above


A Challenger Approaches!

You may be wondering, "Why did we not get last Sunday's update?" Well, two reasons. One, I went on vacation and got some rest. Two, we released so much stuff last weekend, fixed so many bugs this week, and overall had sooo much going on that we decided to just have a super awesome mega DOUBLE post this week!
For those of you celebrating Independence day this week, you could say we wanted to kick off the Summer Brawl event with a BANG (that somehow blew up last week's updates. That's reasonable, right?)

Brace yourselves, the updates are coming!
(Updates kept in order of release for clarity)

Main

Fixed some Storyteller Mini-bosses not having names above their head. (A fix for the broken disguises will come soon! We promise!)

Increased Storyteller Phase I hp (6 -> 60) and increased damage dealt to her when a story is defeated (1 -> 10). (This is mainly to help prevent strange instances in her boss fight)

Fixed numerous spelling and grammatical errors in the StoryTeller's dialogue.

Wow thanks so much to everyone for all the heartfelt goodbyes! It’s been a pleasure to both serve as a staff member and play on Maestrea over the last two years! As I mentioned in my goodbye post I’ll try to hop on when I can, and I’ll continue to remain active on the forum so I can keep up to date on all the new server content. Hope to see you all soon!
