Sarandiel the Water Goddess has blessed Archlight with her presence, by opening up a portal to her sacred lake. She has opened up the portal as she needs the help of the citizens of Archlight, she has been badly hurt from defending her home against Dragons from the Forgotten Islands, to heal her she requests goddess herbs, these can be obtained by completing dungeons while the event is open (Until May 20th). In exchange, she will offer you several different items for your help, including 6 Different Nation Wings, 3 outfits (Pharaoh, Herbalist and Trophy Hunter), Archlight Keys, Legendary Archlight Keys and 2 Different Companions, a baby jellyfish and baby serpent from her lake.
Every single dungeon chest you use (Greater or Solo Dungeon) you will receive 1 Goddess Herb upon Use.

~Sarandiel Cosmetic Gifts~
All these wings are cross-server exclusives! Meaning you will get them on both your NA & EU accounts and will automatically get them back every Season!
These wings all share the same 3% Passive Essence Find buff. Meaning having 2 different Nation Wings will not yield twice that bonus.

Baby Serpent gives +4 to all stats

Streamers will now automatically have access to all cosmetics by having a streamer account, they will not need to use any token.

Richochet Enchantment Buffed
We have increased the chance for Richochet Enchantment to Proc by 250% for Melee Weapons and 325% for Distance Weapons.
Outfit Health Bug
There was a bug with the health/mana % gained by having outfits, where they were still their old original value (despite us increasing the health pools by 80%) so you all will notice your health/mana totals going down from your outfit bonuses only. Sorry about that, but now it's how it was meant to be/balanced.
Broken Mining Nodes in Undead Dragons cave fixed.
Duplicate Hellflayer Spawn now properly has the expanded map.

You will now have a selection of 5 pokemon per roll instead of 4 - This will help allow for more routes to take, and less dependant on a low amount of RNG possibilities.
Some pokemon are now dual-field or dual-egg type pokemon, meaning they will contribute to 2 different synnergies! Because of this, these pokemon have also been slightly nerfed, as they offer the ability to fulfill multiple synnergies.
To clear up one confusion some have. Shiny's obtained are Exclusive & Bound to that account forever. You will automatically have these every season & on your EU account if the accounts are linked (These will be pushed every few months~).
