Salvation update will bring us a lot of changes and will be a grand finale that will finish the story of Embryo and Seven Signs. We don't know what future chapters will bring us, will Shillien be awakened or will Etis van Etina use her powers to become a god himself. But we can take a sneak peek into the updates that get installed on the Korean version to get a picture of what's (maybe) coming to EU as well. Please remember though, that EU versions may differ from the KR and for the final information refer to the patchnotes of the appropriate update.
