'Runes of Magic' Boss Hunt Event Gets You Cash Prizes

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 has redefined the standard for free-to-play MMORPGs in terms of gameplay, fun and quality. The online role-playing game has an exciting, multi-layered story, driven by more than 2,800 quests set in the fantasy world of Taborea. To date, Runes of Magic has attracted more than three million registered users, making it one of the most successful free-to-play titles on the market, and a must play game for all fans of RPGs and MMO games.

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 broad 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 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. Taiwanese developer Runewaker regularly expands the game world with new free content and challenges.

Starting on December 10th, an outsized green menace will be stirring up trouble in the Runes of Magic fantasy world of Taborea. Frogster is inviting all players to take part in a massive boss hunt. Running until December 27th, participants who are able to face off against the menace on one of six days will have a chance at winning a cool 1,000 Euros each.

The “Stop the Green Menace” community event is sending out the best and the bravest on a mission to bring down a powerful goblin.  Only the most courageous will be able to lure him into a duel. Players who are able to draw the boss out for a fight on their server during the six day event will be entered into a prize draw for the 6,000 Euros that are up for grabs. A winner will be chosen at random from all the players on the European servers that are able to challenge the boss – it doesn’t matter if you win or lose.

The rewards are not just financial in nature. All players who square off against the goblin during the six day event have a shot at winning the Damnation Bunga Mount, a brand new two-player mount. On this event day, the Goblin won’t be poking around Taborea, but will be lying in wait in the 1-vs-1 arena for brave gamers.

It now falls to the brave adventures to set off on the hunt and protect Taborea from the green menace. You can find hints on where he’s most likely to be found on our Twitter and Facebook pages.
