Runes of Magic Patch: Storming of the Acropolis

Yay! Finally we can get to the Naga Acropolis in the volcanic territory!  Elite District/Runes Of Magic has released a patch that will include such features as a Halloween Festival (Actually started Yesterday October 27th and will run till November 10th) and some elite skills for the Elves .

Berlin, 28th October 2009: Today’s patch for Runes of Magic paves the way for brave groups of adventurers to journey into the heart of the Naga Empire. Patch ‘2.1.2 – Storming of the Acropolis’ also adds the Halloween Pumpkin Festival into the online role-playing game, together with some long-awaited elite skills for the Elf classes and a territory expansion for the ‘Aotulia Volcano’ zone.

Until now, the huge Naga Acropolis in the volcanic territory has been inaccessible. With ‘2.1.2 – Storming of the Acropolis’, the gates of the fortress are now open and so is a special district inside the zone which will challenge players. Countless elite henchmen occupy the walls and trenches around the Acropolis – Naga troops have set up their camps all around. Solo players don’t have a chance here; only well-equipped groups will ultimately get to face off against the leader of the Naga army: King ‘Sharleedah’ will provide a tough battle for adventurers and can only be toppled by extreme force.

In addition to the new district, patch ‘2.1.2 – Storming of the Acropolis’ offers Elven players some new elite skills for their dual class combination. Minor changes in the interface, new titles for their avatars as well as fixing a few bugs have all been included in today’s update.

More information is available at the official Runes of Magic website.

  1. I almost barfed while playing this game. Ok, they took WoW and they cloned it(which was an EQ clone all along), then added some GW features for taste. And then they did the impossible. The fucked everything up. Seriously, how stupid can you get, to make your WoW clone into a hardcore MMO with a patch, that increases grinding by infinity.

  2. haha, yeah but its free and yes you are right it was based off of WOW. Check out this quote from a previous press release from the creators back in 2008:

    The Taiwanese developers of Runewaker Entertainment Ltd. grew up in the USA and were enthusiastic “Ultima Online” and “World of Warcraft” players. Runes of Magic was developed in a time frame of three years according to western MMO standards. Runemaker will provide new challenges for players every three to four months with free add-ons and updates.

  3. This patch has caused many technical issues, in fact, I don’t think anyone can access the game at the moment, I’m one of the thousands of people who keep getting error messages about the new patch.

    Check out the official forum on their website…
