    [AKTW] October 24: Revival Project

    That's the name of the massive patch that we will be getting hopefully soon.
    The following is the complete list of features&changes introduced in it.

    I. Character creation changes:

    1. Added "Character Fashion Selection System" which lets you pick a specific headwear and costume during 2nd step of character creation.
    2. Random appearance button would pick randomized fashion options; "Restore" button would reset to the default character options.
    3. Characters that start the game in Dimensional Belt will obtain the selected fashion pieces upon entering Port Skandia.
    4. If character class is Reaper or Performer, the fashion pieces will be visible when you enter the character.
    5. Fashion pieces obtained through this system cannot be trade or stored in the warehouse.


    II. Novice gift bag changes:

    1. Changed contents of the Lv.10-30 Gaia Goodiebags. After opening, you will obtain VIP's Sprite Guardian (7 Days), and non-tradable Flame Lion, Fortification Scrolls and consumable shop cards.
    2. Added a Lv.40-90 Gaia Goodiebag. It's obtained through Uber Goodiebag mailed to the character after reaching Lv.30, and it contains a series of boxes with rewards that can be opened upon reaching respective levels.


    III. Eidolon changes:

    1. Eidolon Cultivation
    a. Added missions: "Lv25. Eidolon Cultivation Guide", "Lv60. Eidolon Cultivation Supply", "Lv80. Eidolon Evolution Secret". Completing these missions will grant massive amounts of Eidolon Experience Crystals and reward you with items such as "Eidolon Evolutionary Beads Exchange Voucher (Non-Tradable)". These missions can only be completed once per game account.
    b. Added a new reward to the mission "Lv10. Relief and Despair": completing it will let you choose an exclusive Eidolon Symbol as well as Armor Fortification Scroll x5 (Non-Tradable). If you make a wrong choice, you can use Port Skandia's "Eidolon Token Exchange Box" (571, 546).
    c. Increased Eidolon key fragments drop chances from killing Eidolon bosses in regular and Abyss dungeons.

    2. Eidolon Equipment Optimization
