    • Existing pets will retain their current control slot requirement.
    • Newly tamed pets and pets that undergo the Animal Training process will have their control slot requirement updated.

Korean Localization Changes

  • 동물 지식 (Animal Lore) 기술 번역이 [동물학]으로 변경되었습니다.
  • 장비 지식 (Arms Lore) 기술 번역이 [병기학]으로 변경되었습니다.
  • 애완동물 관련 시스템 메세지 일부가 좀 더 자연스러운 표현으로 변경되었습니다.
  • (예: "이 동물은 너무 많은 이전의 인간 주인들 때문에 지쳐있게 보입니다 → "이 동물은 너무 많은 주인을 섬긴 데에 진절머리가 난 것 같습니다")
  • 동물학 창에서 볼 수 있는 애완동물의 상태 표현이 좀 더 유추하기 쉽게 변경되었습니다. 일부 부분은 약간 원문을 비틀었으나, 상대적으로 양극 상태 (혼란/행복)과 중립 상태 (불만/만족)을 제외하면 각각 4단계로 동일 형태로 분류하여 상태를 좀 더 파악하기 쉽게 만들었습니다.
