next update, Awakening of the Monk, arrives on Thursday, January 7th, says a new Net Dragon press release today. The Monk class is the star; it'll receive a new weapon and new epic skills.
New Monk and Saint: It is said in the Western Fairland, only the Monk who penetrates the deepest essence of Buddhism can obtain the Epic Weapon, Divine Pillar. After finishing some challenging quests, monks are able to upgrade their Beads to the Epic Weapon. Monks equipped with the Epic Weapon will cause higher damage than those using the normal Beads. Get a closer look into the Epic Weapon. A wild dragon swirls around the weapon, symbolizing its power and strength! It looks firm, sharp and inviolable!
The Epic Weapon – Divine Pillar: Furthermore, there are three epic skills for the Divine Pillar, Infernal Echo, Grace of Heaven and Wrath of the Emperor. Infernal Echo is an active skill exclusive for Monks equipped with 2 Epic Weapons. Strike the ground with the Divine Pillar to randomly summon holy pillars around the castor, inflicting continuous normal damage on the target. Grace of Heaven is a passive skill exclusive for Monks also equipped with 2 Epic Weapons which increases the Maximum Stamina. Wrath of the Emperor is the other passive skill exclusive for Monks equipped with an Epic Weapon which deals normal damage on the targets within a certain range.

, which turns 12 years old today. The title is throwing a month-long series of in-game events to celebrate the occasion, including a barbeque and something called "paint paint paint." We're guessing that it has to do with painting.
Even better than anniversary events is the release of its sizable Taoists Ascending content update, which adds a selection of zen-themed weapons and skills. Conquer Online is anticipating a big turn-out for the release, as it's opening up a brand-new server to handle the inflow.
