'Runes of Magic' Update To Add New Dungeon

by Rainier on Sept. 6, 2010 @ 9:16 a.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 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 2,700 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.

The next update for the online role-playing game Runes of Magic will bring players a new addition, called “The Raksha Temple”. This gives players a new dungeon, located in the recently introduced Northern Janost Forest, and offers, for the first time, the ability to choose between three levels of difficulty for their expeditions inside the temple.

Legend tells of the Angren people, half-beast and half-human, who were bestowed the Northern Janost Forest by King Kalume for their efforts in the war against the demons that were threatening Zandorya. However, upon settling in their new territory, the Angren were forced to fight against the deity of the forest, Raksha, who believed the Angren would destroy the forest for their settlement. The conflict ended in an agreement that the half-beast, half-men would not harm the forest, and they would assist the deity in protecting the forest against outsiders. In return, the protective god would accept them as part of the forest and place them under his protection while hiding in a sacred temple.


After centuries of peace, the balance of this agreement has been compromised, and Lashana, the current leader of the Angren, is calling out for help. It is up to the adventurers sent by the young King Callaway to answer this call.

The Raksha Temple dungeon invites Runes of Magic players to explore the sanctuary in order to calm the anger of the awoken gods and discover what lies behind their fury. When entering the temple, players are offered the possibility of choosing from three levels of difficulty: easy, normal and hard. Evidently, the harder the level; the better the rewards acquired when players calm the wrath of the gods.
