Game Almighty writes: "New to The After Years is a lunar phase feature wherein the four different phases of the moon (full, waxing, waning and new) change each time a full day passes. With each phase comes an increase in one particular stat as well as a consequential decrease in another stat. Whereas a full moon grants increased effectiveness in black magic used and received, it also causes decreased effectiveness in melee attacks. Additionally, certain dungeons bring with them a hard mode that can be activated by journeying through the labyrinths during a specific lunar phase identified by NPCs in game. Out of curiosity I activated one of these hard modes just to have my party two-shot by a Green Dragon".
