'Runes of Magic' Celebrates Third Anniversary With Events

by Rainier on March 19, 2012 @ 1:39 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 2,800 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.

During the big birthday week from the 19th to the 25th of March, numerous in-game and community events will be taking place in which players can win great prizes, and a special secret will be revealed at the height of the festivities on the 23rd of March.

This week’s “RoM Honour Tourney” will see players face off in PvP duels to find the most heroic adventurer on each server. The cream of the crop can look forward to prizes in the form of trophies, permanent mounts and valuable Diamonds. But aside from brawn and battle prowess, creativity will also be rewarded in the contest “Your house, your party”, where the most lavishly decorated house will be selected as the location for an after party hosted by the community managers on the 26th of March.

Runewaker has also prepared a series of exciting in-game events to mark the occasion. In addition to the time-honoured tradition of the Frog Event, players can also participate in seven other events, all continuing in the froggy theme. For example, there will be frog racing, frog catching, and even players transforming themselves into frogs in order to solve puzzles and get sought-after items.

In addition, players will also be rewarded for their participation through the bonus programme “Score for More”. On the 19th of March, adventurers can earn triple the Action Scores. The selection of rewards they can exchange their scores for is being expanded as well. As a bonus, the first 1,000 players to register for Score for More by the 29th of March will receive a paysafecard worth 5 euros.
