SAO_Alert_update.png


You wake in your own bed. While it may be a bit hazy at first, the events of the previous evening come rushing back - either you were among those on the Frontlines, or you bore witness to the horror of a vast darkness, an unrelenting storm. In both cases, the last thing you remember is being swallowed up by shadows.

 

Effect on Lore

The World

  • Aincrad has reverted back to optimal settings.
    • Any damage caused by the storm's influence (in Storm of Shadows) has been corrected.
      • All NPCs will recall the horrible storm, but they all remember surviving it and rebuilding.
    • The crater on Floor 22 (caused by the Onslaught of the Sundered Spire event) has been repaired. The Lake of Reflections is as it once was.
      • NPCs in the region speak of the crater as if it were a distant legend. They do not remember ever seeing it.
    • Floor 26 is now accessible by teleporter.
  • Every floor has been altered, some more drastically than others.
    • At a minimum, new locations exist where there may have been nothing before.
    • Certain quests will be discovered by players to have changed.
    • New quests have been added to certain floors.
  • Field Bosses have begun spawning.

Players
