    Player Suggestions
    We gathered a lot of feedback regarding the Desert of Essences event and made changes accordingly:​
    • Boss fights
      • During the Essence Trial, you now face Animated Armors, imbued with the respective element they represent – prepare yourself, for every boss has its’ individual strengths and weaknesses
    • Desert of Essences Event Attire
      • We did add an additional bonus effect while not raising the price for the attire: You are now immune against the harmful effects of sandstorms
    • Realm path entry costs
      • You now need only 1 realm path to enter the Desert of the Lost, no matter the difficulty
      • You now need only 1 realm path to enter the Kia Krisal, no matter the difficulty
    • Sentinel
      • The Sentinel in the Desert of the Lost now drops Crystal Dew and Essence Water (The amount is scaling with the chosen difficulty)
    • Draken
      • The amount of Draken you get per progress bar tier was changed, so that players on every tier will get 300 Draken, not only the ones on the highest tier
    • Drop behavior
      • After every Sandstorm, you will now find Uncovered Chests, which amongst other loot, contain a fix amount of Crystal Dew and Essence Water (The amount is scaling with the chosen difficulty). This is an addition to the normal drop amount of Crystal Dew which was not was not changed
    • Essence chest
      • We removed the uncommon Essence of Vigor (non-elemental) from the Essence Chest
    • Gateways to Kia Krisal
      • To prevent players from unwillingly activating gateways, we moved the individual ones to the edges of the map. In addition to that, we added Cease Fire zones, so players do not fight there and activate a gateway by misclicking during fights
      • The Cease Fire zones are easy to spot as always
      • We added map icons for the portals
    • Sandstorms
      • We lowered the debuff damage
      • We reduced the amount of ticks
      • We decreased the movement speed malus
    • Essence Shardlings in Kia Krisal
      • We reduced the attack range of the Essence Shardlings and added a randomized initial attack interval, so they do not all attack at the same time
