The Zezenia Online Fall Update has been released! As always, your client will update automatically, or you may download Zezenia here. Steam users may need to restart to receive the update.

Here's what's new:

The Bestiary


The newly added Bestiary details all monsters to be found in the world of Zezenia and serves as a personal collection. Killing a monster will unlock its bestiary page along with common stats & loot.

Avid beast collectors can work to familiarize themselves and ultimately master each monster, unlocking very rare loot along the way. Bestiary kills are shared between all players. Newly added Beast Collector, Beast Master & Beast Grandmaster achievements are earned by unlocking & mastering monsters in the bestiary.

The Bestiary can be opened from the new Library menu or using CTRL + B.

Monster Boosts are available for purchase in the bestiary using noble Zezenian coins. Options include a +25% experience boost, increased enraged & elite spawns and a monster health debuff.

Active boosts are shared with all players in the game world, and can be seen on login & from the Bestiary. Generous community members will receive thanks for their boost purchases!

New Talents System


The new Talent System features a unique talent tree for each subclass. Talents are divided into three unlockable tiers. Players can specialize in one of two subclass specific special talents.

Each talent can be assigned 10-15 points depending on subclass. One assignable point is gained every 10 levels. For instance, a Paladin may assign five extra points to the Fortification talent.

In addition to existing talents Durability, Spirituality, Legerity, Expertise, Aggression, Fortification, Resistance, Healing & Weapon Boost the following talents are new:

* Mana Steal: returns 10 mana points per talent point on each basic attack.

* Multi Strike: adds a 2% chance per point to inflict an additional strike on each attack. (50% damage in PvP)

* Brewing: increases potion duration by ~4% per talent point.

Starting at level 300 new Special Talents are available by subclass:

The level 300+ Ice Dungeon is about to open for business! Fight your way up a narrow mountain to the top for great rewards. Beware, as you will be challenged by never seen before beasts, which are surely lethal.
