The Mercenaries are NPCs which help you clear dungeons. They aid you in various ways, by attacking monsters that are attacking the player, or by giving buffs to the party or player. In order to summon them you need to have a Mercenary card registered on the Mercenary slot. Basic Mercenary cards can be earned from quests and rarer ones are dropped from dungeons, so it would be a good challenge to try collecting them all.
[You are no longer alone]
[Try to add every Mercenary to your collection]
Each Mercenary is recognized as a party member, so the users cannot excess the maximum party members 7 including Mercenaries.
EX) The maximum Mercenary summon number of a 4 party member dungeon play is 3.

Dungeon Related Functions
We have been gathering suggestions from users and we have managed to apply the most frequently suggested ones on this update. Now the players will be able to enjoy the new dungeon related functions:
Dual Pet Equip System
Now equipping two pets at the same time is possible! Using the ‘Pet Slot Extender’ enables you to use the additional pet slot. When 2 pets are equipped, both of the pets appear in game and gain Pet EXP, but only the pet on the basic slot affects the character.
[Now you can have 2 pets to follow you]
New Unique Ring
Another unique ring that is definitely worth challenging has been added. If you bring the “Ring of Evil Spirit 2” dropped from Leth Tyrant (the final boss monster of FT2) to the core alchemist Sullivan in Desert Scream, she will give you the “Ring of the Tyrant” in exchange. The new ring’s options surely surpass every other existing rings’ in the game.
[Anyone would definitely want to show off this ring]
