Ark’s beginning area <Verdel> has been added. It is a new planet in Grandis.

  • Verdel is a desert ruin, caused by some kind of accident in the past, and has abandoned for a long time.
  • Ark, who has lost his memories, is found by a Caravan of a wandering tribe.
  • The story begins as Ark tries to regain his memories while working together with the Caravan to escape Verdel.
  • If you do not complete Ark’s beginning tutorial quest ‘Reuniting with Albert’, you cannot gain experience, mesos, or items outside of Verdel.

Here’s the new maps of the area. I love the background, and the smooth jazzy background music is so calming.
