    Over on the rebuild server (the test server that is changing the game on the fly), Neowitz has remade the Mascu race. They are now a neutral race, where you can decide which faction to choose from later on.

    The Mascu can only be certain classes now as well. They can be a Guardian, Berserker, Mage, Paladin and Assassin.

    Lastly there is now an option to make a half-human/half mascu race. They too live with the mascu and share the same traits as them.

    In an interesting or strange move. Neowitz has announced that they are opening up a Japanese server using the new "Rebuild version 1.0", so it will be missing tons of stuff. I guess they want to test the new build on the Japanese (aka suckers) before moving to the western markets.

    There was no hype or any advertising, they just announced it out of the blue yesterday. The server went live today. If you want to play on the server, you just need a VPN.

    If you want to play on the Japanese server, here are the instructions :

    Here is the announcement from yesterday :

    Just an update on what's happening with Bless.

    If you haven't herd much from the rebuild server, it's because Neowtiz has petty much abandoned it. I think the reason why they have done this is because the game is just dead in Korea. Nobody plays on the rebuild or the retail server anymore.

    But Bless is having major success in Japan. The Mascu are a big hit there. So Neowtiz has decided to focus their efforts there. Over the past few months, the Devs has been porting over the rebuild server over to the Japanese server. As well as updating, adding content, and optimization . All that is missing is the mystic update, and Japan will have everything that is on the rebuild server.

    As for the western version, Neowitz hasn't said much (they are still working on it), and the game director had a dev talk on steam, explaining what is going on.

    Yea, Neowitz is trying to make this more like Tera. Lolis, Sexy stuff, weird/funny costumes, action combat, the list goes on. But Bless at it's core is still a 2 realm open world pvp game similar to Aion. Your safe up to lvl 29, but lvl 30+ you can get ganked anywhere from the opposite faction. There are no safezones, no karma, or anything like that.

    Jae-hoon Jeon, Neowtiz's director for Bless gave two interviews with massivelyop.com, and mmorpg.com today. In both interviews he said that there will be more upcoming developer updates, so watch out for those if you are looking for more info about Bless in the West.

    All info below can be found here :

    http://massivelyop.com/2018/02/12/bl...ng-pay-to-win/

    https://www.mmorpg.com/bless/intervi...orn-1000012474

    Here are the main things that he said in both interviews.

    - Bless's top priority is the combat overhaul. Combat will feature skill combos, multiple viable playstyles for each class and all in all a restructured skill system.

    - Bless will feature massive War PvP that will stretch from land to sea and sky, they said more info about this is coming soon. There will also be INSTANCED 100vs100 pvp battlefields with easy access. Korean and Japanese servers also have Arena PvP. Even though the above interviews do not mention Arena PvP, it will be included in the Western release.

    - Early Access is NOT a Closed beta test. Early Access is a soft launch and there will be NO character or data wipes. There is also a chance that Early Access will be free.

    - Payment Model is NOT decided yet but the director addressed the community's worries about P2W and said: "that isn't going to happen and we will share our plans once they're finalized". Currently they are leaning towards a B2P model, cash shop.

    - The Steam version will have the same and MORE content than the other regions (Korea and Japan) and they plan to equalise the updates of all of the regions some time after the Steam launch.

    - Three features that will make Bless stand out from other Korean MMORPGs, like BDO, BnS and even A:IR, according to the game's director are : Combat, the ability to tame and keep as a pet or a mount almost every "monster" and the land-sea-sky War.

    - The game will implement both vertical and horizontal progression. Levelling will be part of your adventure in Bless and after you hit the level cap, horizontal progression will allow you to acquire more skills and better gear.

    - Their ultimate goal is creating a massive "living", interactive world. But since they want the game to be stable they are trying ways to implement NPCs and objects without hurting the game's stability.

    More updates on how Combat and skills will work as well as their large-scale War content will be coming soon.

    This also means that researching the Korean or Japanese versions for PvP and PvE gameplay is obsolete since the Steam version is going to feature newer, different, reworked game mechanics.
