What's New This Season This season will be one week shorter than a standard season to avoid Season 18 beginning on December 24, and as a result will offer tripled points during the final weeks.In order to receive guild season rewards, players must now again be a member of the qualifying guild for at least 75% of the season. Qualifying time spent with a guild will be easily visible in a new UI.Crystal Arena Changes Starting with Season 17 there will be additional substeps in the Crystal Arena ranking system. While the amount of Ranking Points needed to reach maximum rank remains the same, there will be extra steps between the ranks (Iron III, Iron IV, etc.) which makes Rank Up events more frequent. As a result, more chests are given out for ranking up in a Crystal Arena Season. Additionally, Arena rankings will not fully reset at season end. Instead, players will be partially ranked down at the start of the next season. For example, Crystal Rank players will start at Silver I. Any Rank Up Rewards skipped at the season start will be sent in an in-game mail. Full list of sub-ranks starting with Season 17: Iron I, Iron II, Iron III, Iron IVBronze I, Bronze II, Bronze III, Bronze IVSilver I, Silver II, Silver III, Silver IVGold I, Gold II, Gold III, Gold IVCrystalAt the start of the next Arena Season, players will be partially instead of fully down-rankedOther changes: Various UI improvementsThe Arena Master now only accepts the new Arena Sigils; the old Discontinued Arena Sigils can no longer be traded for rewards. However, Discontinued Arena Sigils can now be salvaged for a 10% chance to get a T4 Royal Sigil.Hideout Booster Changes Boosters are no longer earned at the end of a seasonInstead, every guild always has a Booster (beginning at guild creation)To use the Booster, the guild must still meet the current HQ Hideout requirements, i.e. meeting the Season Point Threshold of the current or previous seasonAfter use, the Booster goes on a 90-day cooldownCorrupted Dungeon Changes Players can now directly enter a new Corrupted Dungeon after they defeat another player or are banished. This allows players who want to primarily engage in the PvP aspect of this feature to have less downtime between PvP fights. If a player defeats another player or is banished by another player, the Exit Dungeon ability cast time is shortened back to 7s. (This does not apply to players who destroy the crystals during an invasion, only to those who are banished when the crystals are destroyed by an opponent.)After successfully casting the Exit Dungeon ability, the player can choose to directly enter a new Corrupted Dungeon.Additionally, downing an invader on Hunter level now sends the invader back into the open world.Treasure Chest Adjustments Small Treasure Chests now open more quickly (5 min → 3 min)The time they take to respawn has been adjusted accordinglyAdjusted ratio between small, medium and large treasure chestsHalved chance for a large treasure chest to spawn but increased value accordinglyMight Level Changes Crystal Spiders: Might Requirement First Level: 20,000 → 10,000Might Level Requirements for all subsequent levels halved (i.e. each Crystal Spider effectively gives twice the Season Points)Corrupted Dungeons: Might Requirement Increase per Level: 4,000 → 3,0002v2 Hellgates: Might Requirement Increase per Level: 5,000 → 4,0005v5 Hellgates: Might Requirement Increase per Level: 7,000 → 5,0003.
