Knight Online World is based on the Korean version of Knight Online.
The Korean version receives updates frequently, while Knight Online World only gets
updates in big batches that are known as expansions. The content of the
expansion is usually the cumulative of updates released within a time period,
although some features can be implemented differently or removed, such as
Lunar War map voting and schedule, character deletion and nation transfer.
Below is a list of updates to KOKO that haven't been released in USKO.
These updates are candidates to be released with
the next expansion.
The dates next to the individual updates are the date the news item about
that item were first posted on the KOKO news section. If "+ JPKO" appears next
to an item, it means the update has been added to JPKO as well.
NOTE: Don't take these for certain. There may be translation errors that
change the meaning. All of this info was taken from the Korean official site,
not from inside the game.
Clans will be able to hold up to 50 members. Additional options to post
clan and alliance notices will be added.
The NP shop will ask for your secret answer before it can be used. (This is
a guess. The original KOKO update says it will require your social security
number, but in USKO the secret answer is used instead in features that require
When entering instanced dungeons (BDW, Chaos etc.), you won't be able to
trade, either until the event starts or you get the rejection message.
Under the Castle
Under the Castle is a "boss rush" style event. It consists of 4 stages,
with 5 bosses in total (Mehmed III, Crusher Gimmick, Abyss Rainbow Hyurias,
Chained Pluton and Hell Destroyer Pluton). The bosses constantly summon
minions and use powerful AOE attacks. Each boss has several health bars,
and a short video will be played after each health bar is down.
While there is no level requirement
(actually you need to be level 35 since the entrance is in El Morad/Luferson
Castle), you will find it hard to survive withouth high level equipment, buffs
and constant healing.
After clearing each stage, lots of boxes will spawn at the place where the
boss was killed, and you will also receive quest items. After the 4th stage
you will have the chance to exchange your Booty items for rewards. There are
also several daily quests that can be done in this map.
There is no concrete schedule for this event. It is said to happen once
every 24 hours. You can enter the zone while the event is not under way but
you won't be able to do anything except sightseeing.
Delos Underground zone
The Delos Underground zone will be released along with the new CSW system.
The entrance is inside the castle, the same place where the Abyss entrance
used to be. The entrance to Abyss will be moved to a place outside the castle.
The castle lord clan can therefore block out anyone else from accessing the
Delos Underground zone.
The zone contains new NPC's, mobs and quests, and will allow you to obtain
the Castle Lord weapons.
Castle Siege War changes
There will be some auxiliary artifacts on the map. Destroying these will
allow the siege time to be shortened.
The "Stones of Time", when decreased by the defending team, will decrease
the length of the siege by a maximum of 10 minutes.
An attacking clan can win by owning the center artifact for 15 minutes.
The "Stones of Time" can decrease this time too.
The center artifact will change its capture method to that similar to BDW:
you must right-click on it and stay focused for 30 seconds. There will be
3 guard towers near the artifact to hinder its capture.
The defending clan will have its allies on the defending side to help.
The clans can't be identified during the siege, as they will be labeled
"the attacking team" and "the defending team".
The lord of the castle can summon monsters to help with defending.
The siege weapons will be improved to provide a better siege capability.
There will be reward items acquired by killing other players. These can be
turned in for buffs, just like the National Enchanter.
Blink and descent can't be used during the siege.
Abyss Dungeon will be replaced with a new map that is similar to Krowaz's
