Blade & Soul’s The Dawn of the Lost Continent update launches tomorrow

The Dawn of the Lost Continent

Blade & Soul is getting one of its biggest updates ever tomorrow, December 6. Called The Dawn of the Lost Continent, this update raises the level cap to 55 and the Hongmoon level cap will increase to 25, among other things.

Some of the highlights of the update include the release of Act 8, new Hongmoon Ultimate Skills and new heroic end-game dungeons (a solo dungeon, two 6-player dungeons and a 12-player raid dungeon). Here is what you can expect, and you definitely should check the patch notes for all the details:

• The Most Fearsome Scallywags Wanted – Players will have a new level cap to reach, as the max level gets raised from 50 to 55 for all characters. Those who prove their mettle will unlock Hongmoon Ultimate Skills; class-specific attacks of pure destruction.

• Westward, Ho! – Act 8 of the epic Blade & Soul storyline sends players on a mission to awaken Jinsoyun. Of course, players will need to enlist the help of Chol Mugo and his giant flying pirate ship (The Iron Shadow) to reach the mysterious continent of Solak. There are plenty of new areas for players to explore, including Valindira, the long-lost ancestral home to the Yun.

• Gather Your Crew – Hollow’s Heart and Starstone Mines are the two new 6-member heroic dungeons in Solak, filled to the brim with new treasure, waiting to be taken. And unruly buccaneers can test their skills in the new weekly 12-member raid, Snowjade Fortress.

• Become the King of the Outlaws on Outlaw Island! – Poharan, the gun-toting maniac and Vice Admiral of the Blackram, has an even more maniacal gun-toting sister, Yeohoran! And she’s the resident Force of Nature on Outlaw Island. The heroic solo dungeon will pit players in the Blackram Battle Royale to challenge the pirate queen herself in a deadly duel.
