With an extensive range of features Runes of Magic prepares to redefine the standard of free to play massively online role playing games. Runes of Magic conveys an absorbing story through more than 1.000 quests embedded in an atmospheric fantasy world. Players can choose between six main classes and combined with a secondary class they present 30 individual combinations of character classes over all. All characters possess unique skills with impressive combo attacks and can use mounts like war horses and more. A particularly attractive feature for guilds and players is the possibility to arrange their own virtual homes with individual furnishing. Thanks to an extensive crafting and reputation system, thrilling PvP, as well as demanding dungeons and boss-monsters, no wishes remain unsatisfied. The Taiwanese developer Runewaker has developed Runes of Magic according to western MMO standards within a time frame of three years. The studio will provide new challenges for players every four to five months with free add-ons and updates.

Each player will receive a credit of 20 diamonds for their Runes of Magic account, per server on which they have a character with a minimum level 10 character. In addition when buying diamonds at the normal price players will receive up to 900 more diamonds than usual until Saturday 17:00.

What’s more, as of today there are two new mounts available in the Item Shop: Wild Lions and Night Lions. These majestic creatures are ready and willing to carry their riders swiftly and safely through the dangerous worlds of Taborea.

The Ruby Shop has also been fully open from yesterday. This is where exclusive items can be redeemed which in turn can only be found here. Payments are made using the rubies which are transferred to the Ruby account after each exchange for items in diamonds in the Item Shop.
