I tried that elemental temple thingy 2 times so far, but I dno, I dont like it. Maybe cuz I havent succeeded so far :p
And i made a voida after all, but im just lvling it up by taking it with me in mth.
Some changes for my faction are more hp in demonic, so i'm at 106k instead of 85k unbuffed. Which is nice cuz a lot of my skills deal extra dmg based on my hp. Apart from that some skills are no longer bugged, e.g. my skill dmg buff no longer prevents me from talking to npc's or switching charms/equipment in pvp. Sky Seeker is supposed to be more effective too now, but since I no longer tomed it, I havent use it in action yet.
Then, Esper ascension. The items you need for it are dropped by Shura-, KL wonderland- and some kunlun bosses. Also by moontop bosses, but you need to spam the fumes quest for it a lot of times. A lvl35 esper will go back to lvl28 upon ascending. If it's lower than 30 it will revert to lvl1. More info about this is in the forum sticky.
What else is new:-? Oh yes, archaia.
Ive done a couple of mandats there, seems you can build up your own bound yuan crystals. Lvl2-3 crystals are rewarded for doing mandats and other quests from npc's. And in sunstream (elemental temple npc), you can build up your yuans. 3x lvl2 = 1x lvl3, and so on... So quick math, for a lvl8 yuan you'll need 729 lvl2's and for a lvl9, 2187 lvl2 crystals. Archaia also offers something like contracts, with rewards that can be exchanged for some kind of honor. With that honor you can get stuff at some npc's in archaia (for instance yuans and titles and some other things i forgot). That's all i know about it so far. I only go in daily to do the dragon astrolabe quest.
That's about everything I guess. Still gutted we didnt get the sigil like zx. I've been on the verge of cascade charming my weap, but I'll try to get a yuan lvl8 first to upgrade my 135+8 weap, in case I would fail the st
