The Walk of Echoes battles have offered players fun yet challenging fights for both rewards and experience. However, the difficulty of these fights and the limitations on participation have proven to be an obstacle in the event's success. Upcoming test server updates for Walk of Echoes hopes to eliminate these problems, starting with decreasing the damage dealt by area of effect attacks by the boss Notorious Monsters. Later adjustments will see the addition of temporary items at the start of fights as well as the removal of the "Once per Game Day" limitation on re-entry.
Let us know what your opinions on these changes are on the ZAM forums!
