The pirate survival MMO ATLAS embraces Season 9 with a new patch that introduces some new content, including a new region shrouded in darkness.

New Region

Patch v543.00 introduces the Maw Waters region in ATLAS. This new region is engulfed in an unnaturally thick fog and is filled with monsters that can vanish or appear out of thin air.

Pathfinders will be given a special item called the Lantern of the Maw as soon as they venture forth into this region. The lantern can be filled with a resource known as Essence of the Maw, which can be acquired by doing certain activities in the area.

The Essence of the Maw can be used to craft a semi-soft, semi-solid crystal called Solidified Essence. Pathfinders who want to leave the Maw Waters region should fully fill their lanterns with it.

New Mini-Bosses

Pathfinders who are itching to kill tougher enemies will be happy to know of the seven new mini-bosses. They can be found in different locations at the Golden Age Ruins. Here’s a rundown:

  • Ancient Fire Elemental
  • Elder Rock Elemental
  • Kekada
  • Buwaya
  • Eber
  • Crystal Scorpion
  • The Sentinel
