'Runes of Magic' to Get New Territory Filled With Quests

by Rainier on Sept. 18, 2009 @ 1:24 p.m. PDT

With an extensive range of features Runes of Magic prepares to redefine the standard of free-to-play MMO games. Even at the beginning Runes of Magic conveys its absorbing story in over 5,000 quests embedded in an atmospheric world.

Runes of Magic features a unique dual class system enabling players to combine one of eight primary classes with a secondary class. The result is a deep player experience that expands upon the game’s deep customization offering. There are two different playable races, Elves and Humans, from which players can choose. Each dual class combination produces its own powerful elite skills. Another popular feature is the opportunity to furnish your own completely individual virtual home, and guilds can construct guild castles, which can be expanded with additional buildings. Thanks to comprehensive crafting and reputation systems, gripping PvP features, deep customization and demanding dungeons, Runes of Magic has something for everyone.

Things are heating up in Taborea – the ‘Aotulia Volcano’ is about to erupt. The new territory in Runes of Magic has been where the malevolent Naga people have been exiled for centuries. The next content update will open the gates to this new region, which is characterized by boiling lava flows.

The ‘Aotulia Volcano’ is where the snake-like beings were banished following their defeat in the Great War against the alliance of the Elves and humans. Separated from the rest of Taborea by a magical wall, they’ve been waiting for years for the opportunity to escape. After the barrier fell, the Naga conquered north-western Taborea. Now adventurers will finally have the opportunity to advance into the heart of the Naga invasion.

Here, under the ashen skies, is where heroes can take their final steps on the way to the level 55 cap, once they have left the ‘Savage Lands’ behind them. Numerous quests will unravel the history of the desolate zone around the volcano. A gigantic city at the foot of the volcano and new dungeons wait to be explored as players embark on challenging adventures.

The new territory of the ‘Aotulia Volcano’ will be open to all players at the end of September.
