Abilities with the Ninja style include: “Hide” – where players can turn themselves invisible for a certain amount of time, and “Flurry” – where players can throw their Kunai dagger and teleport to wherever it hits.
The company also announced a new “Collection” feature for players to obtain special pieces from Secret Boxes, monster drops, or certain special missions and exchange them for special items to update their look. These collections will be updated seasonally. Lastly, for newer players, the game will incorporate a new training mode, a place where players can experiment combat strategies that match their own style. This training mode can be accessed at any time.
