  • New interface with Map: If you press M twice, it will toggle the opacity of the map, simply hit ESC if you wish to close the map

Tips and Tricks for Open Beta:

  • When leveling your secondary/third class make sure you use the Duty Finder while farming Fates. This works better if you and your friends party up!
  • We found a place in Western La Noscea below Sastasha where you can level up your secondary or third class (there are two fates lvl 15 and lvl 10 that are nearby each other)
  • Rumors also of a place in Middle La Noscea, northern area where there are fates as well
