Detailed 7 Signs Information


Joining and Withdrawing from the Seven Signs Cabals

The players who want to participate in the Seven Signs must join one of the Cabals, either the Revolutionary Army of Dusk (hereinafter "Dusk") or the Lords of Dawn (hereinafter "Dawn") for a certain period of time. Once they join the Cabals, it is impossible for them to withdraw until a new Seven Signs starts after two weeks, and, at the time of joining, they must choose the Seal they want to possess.

Lords of Dawn: The members of the clans who own the castle may join the Lords of Dawn. Also players who are not members of the castle-holding clans or alliances but willing to pay 50,000 adena are able to choose Dawn through the Priests of Dawn in each village. During the competition period, they may join through the Priests of Dawn in each village. Also, the Lord of each castle has the privilege to allow an additional 300 characters to join. During the competition period, the Lords of the castles may purchase 300 of the Approval Certificates through the Chamberlain and transfer these Certificates to other characters.

The characters who are not members of the castle clans need to get an Approval Certificate from the Lords to join the Dawn or pay 50,000 adena. The Approval Certificates will never expire, but are re-usable.

Revolutionary Army of Dusk: Only the characters who are not members of the castle clans and guilds may join the Dusk. During the registration period, they may join through the Priests of Dusk in each village.

The characters without a second change of occupation: They may freely join either the Lords of Dawn or the Revolutionary Army of Dusk. They may not participate in the Seven Signs.

Competition Period

The characters who joined the Cabals participate in the competition period from the first Monday (6 PM) until the Monday (6 PM) of the following week and compete to possess the Seals. Each Cabal may hunt the Lilim, Nephilim, Lilith, and Gigant, the Seven Signs monsters, within the Catacomb and Necropolis to acquire Seal Stones. They can participate in two kinds of competitions; acquiring the items necessary for their Cabal, and participating in the Festival of Darkness.

1) Collecting Seal stones (Blue, Green, and Red) Each Cabal may hunt the monsters within the Catacomb and Necropolis to acquire Seal Stones. The items acquired in this way are entrusted to the Priest of each side , and then, based on the number of items, the scores contributed to Seven Signs by each player are accumulated and included in the total score of the whole Cabal. [Contribution points to the Cabal will be different based on stone color: Blue (1), Green (5), and Red (10)]. Seal Stones are the items that can be exchanged among the players, and even if the items are not entrusted to the Priest during the competition period, they do not disappear and can be used during the next competition period.

2) The Festival of Darkness

  • Overview One chosen party participates in this challenge for the victory of the Cabal. Of the players participating in the Festival of Darkness, the party who recorded the best score in each grade will contribute some points to the Cabal it belongs to. The Festival of Darkness is divided by level and any players belonging to the Cabals of Dawn and Dusk can participate in it.
  • How to participate The players may participate only during the competition period. The party who wants to participate should pay Seal Stones to the Guide of the Festival in the Oracle. Priests in towns will teleport you to Oracle for free. The entry fee varies depending on the level and will be paid by party leaders. The party must consist of minimum of 5 members belonging to the same Cabal and the members of the party must correspond to the grade of the Festival they want to participate in. The characters who correspond to the level of the Festival, but have higher level skills than the party members may not participate. This happens when the character is de-leveled, but his skills learned from the previous higher level remain. These challenges are always possible during the competition period and there is no limit in the number of challenges.
  • Festival of Darkness
    In the Oracle, where the Festival of Darkness occurs, items are not dropped even after death with the exception of Chaotic players. Experience loss is reduced to a quarter of the normal death penalty. If the competition is restarted within the Oracle, your party is moved to the nearby village when restarting. Within the center magic array in the Oracle MP regenerates more quickly than normal. Players can be teleported to the Oracle and, when coming out, return to the place they left free of charge through the Priest of each village. When players die, they will restart inside the room. Resurrection is not allowed within the Oracle. Archer monsters in the corners may pinpoint their attacks on healer classes.
  • Type of challenges The Festival of Darkness is divided into five grades, such as less than a 32 level, less than a 43 level, less than a 54 level, less than a 65 level and an unlimited level.

  • Process Teleporting to the battle ground is possible only two minutes before the Festival of Darkness starts. Once the enrollment is completed through the Guide of the Festival, the party receives the Quest of the Festival of Darkness and is immediately teleported to The Oracle and, after two minute, may begin the Festival. The Festival of Darkness continues for 18 minutes, when each party can hunt the monsters to acquire the "Blood of the Sacrificed". The number of this certificate corresponds to the performance score in the Festival of Darkness. All the Blood of the Sacrificed acquired is awarded to the party leader.

    The party who wants to give up in the middle of the Festival can do so through the Female Shaman found in center of the room, and if they think the Festival is too easy, they can request the Female Shaman of the Festival to bring stronger monsters. The stronger the monster they kill, the more Blood of the Sacrificed they can acquire. Please note that drop chances for Blood of the Sacrificed will be lowered when accompanied by pets.
  • Registration of the result After the Festival ends, the leader of the party must register the result to the Guide of the Festival within 40 minutes. Please note that if the party fails to register within this time, the result will become invalid. If the registered result is lower than the previous highest record, the record is not updated. The players can confirm the participating members and score of the party who set the highest record for each grade through the guide of the Festival.
  • Prize After the competition period ends and their Cabal won, the party members who set the highest record for each grade can receive Ancient Adena as compensation from the Guide of the Festival. After the entire amount of the entry fee is converted to Ancient Adena, the amount of compensation that is received is allocated to the winning parties. Although a party may set the highest record in a specific grade, they cannot receive the prize if the Cabal they belong to loses. Please note that the prize is paid only before the next competition period begins.
End of the Competition Period and Victory and Defeat

1) Determining Victory and Defeat
The total of Seal Stones acquired by each Cabal and entrusted to the Priest, and the scores for the victory in each grade of the Festival of Darkness is added up. The side with the higher total score will win. For the winner, the total score of the Cabal acquired during the competition period will disappear after winning, but for the loser, the score will be accumulated and remain until the party wins later.

2) Settlement of Ancient Adena Once the Seal Effective period begins, the Priest in the village exchanges the Seal Stones, entrusted as the contribution during the competition period, into Ancient Adena, and gives it to the winner, based on Victory or Defeat. If the winning Cabal did not entrust any Seal Stones during the competition period, they can bring them to exchange for Ancient Adena immediately. This way, the winner can receive compensation with Ancient Adena; however, the loser cannot receive compensation until they win in the competition. Seal Stones entrusted at the time of defeat may be compensated all together if they win in the next competition. If Ancient Adena was not transferred during the Seal Effective period, the transfer cannot be performed until the Cabal wins in the next competition. If they win, they can exchange all of their accumulated Seal Stones for Ancient Adena. 3) Purchasing items The winner can purchase a variety of items that cannot be purchased in the general stores by paying with Ancient Adena to the Priest of Dusk or Dawn. 4) Change in the Ownership of the Seal The ownership of the Seal is changed based on the resulting Victory or Defeat and percentage of choice for the Seal.

- If a Seal was already closed or owned by the opponent and the new winner wants to assume ownership of the Seal, 35% or more of the members of the Cabal must have chosen the Seal. If they chose less than 35%, they cannot own the Seal.

- If the Seal was owned by the winner in the previous Seven Signs, they can retain that seal if 10% or more members have chosen it. If they want to possess a new Seal, at least 35% of the members of the Cabal must have chosen the new Seal.
