January 23 Patch

After Glory Days released in Korea a series of small patches called Echo Updates were made to the game, primarily to fix various issues and optimize recent changes. Many Echo Updates were included in the NCSOFT West launch of Glory Days, and others are included here in the January 23, 2013 patch to the Glory Days game version.

Please note there are a few known issues with this game update.

Zones & Bosses

New level 85-99 raid bosses have been added to the game. Dr. Chaos, who seeks to use Mother Nornil’s power to conquer the Ancient City of Arcan, created three robot versions of famous feline characters, and has sent them to terrorize the village:

  • Level 88 Reinforced Super Kat the Cat
  • Level 92 Darkened Super Feline Queen
  • Level 94 Control-crazed Mew the Cat

When all three of the above raid bosses are killed, the final boss, Omega Golem (level 97) appears.

Other Changes

  • Prison of Darkness: The Spezion epic raid instance dungeon has been changed so that an Adventure Guildsman NPC appears after Spezion’s defeat, to exchange Seal of Sincerity items.
  • Mandragora Farm now appears on the Hunting Zone list of the map’s World Info tab.
  • All regions that conduct raid boss battles now become battlefields when the raid boss appears. The areas reset to normal status when the raid boss leaves. If a raid boss is pulled out of their fight area by a certain distance, they disengage and respawn back at their original location. (It is not possible to pull raid bosses into towns or peace areas.)

    • The problem of sometimes not being able to enter through Triol’s Mirror has been corrected.
