If you are taking part, though, you can look to this particular villa as a personal goal, and it features plenty of space for new and familiar decorations across the island landscape. Check out screenshots and a video preview just below if you’ve got a heart for real estate, and we can only hope that those of you who will not be able to get this particular house also have characters who don’t like airy seaside mansions in the first place.
Oh, you’re already on the mailbox. No. Put your boots back on. Can we… can we just talk about this feature? While wearing clothing? Yes, that’s much better, thank you.
See, in a game with multiple item enhancements, you’re often tempted to hold on to everything in the hopes of just upgrading one thing, right? So now you can strip your old gear of experience, Dragonspikes, and Tier Beads all at once. Then you can apply those to new pieces of equipment, ensuring that you still have a reason to upgrade and a reason to not hoard your upgrades.
Although we suppose you can still take off all of your gear if you want to. That’s just not the feature under discussion.
What if you do want to change to a new class but don’t want to level up all over again? The newly added class change feature is just what you asked form, then, allowing you to hop to another class while retaining your level. There’s also a new motorbike mount to unlock through questing; you can see a preview of the bike along with the Assassin class in the trailer down below, or peek at the screenshots for a glimpse of the new training areas.
Gone are the days when Chinese companies could get away with ripping off games left and right: Blizzard is going after another one of these alleged copyright-violating piles of crap.
The game in question is mobile title Heroes of Warfare; Japanese publication PC Watch reports that Blizzard’s Chinese conglom and publisher NetEase are suing the the maker, demanding and apology, restitution, and removal from Apple’s appstore, on the grounds of IP violations in China.
Meanwhile, stop cheating, cheaters. Your day has come, as the studio has apparently begun another round of six-month bans to folks who use cheat tools. Stoppit.
And in happier Blizzard news… here’s the whole WoW dev team. The fluffy white dog on the left personally made the no-flying-in-Argus decision, we’ve been informed by the PR collie being hoisted over on the right.
The patch also contains some fun flying sword mounts for being among the first to clear this new content, so if you’ve got a crew ready to take on these challenges you could be richly rewarded. (If you’d rather fly under your own power, we do still have dragon wings.) Combine that with a 24-hour sale in the game’s store, and you should be able to get at least a few nice rewards for yourself with the patch launch.
The feature allows you to select from the various cities to pick out both the best spots of treasure hunting and the most interesting locales, while those not yet unlocked will require you to interact with NPCs (and the guide will helpfully point you in the right direction). Successfully filling in entries will award fame for the respective region as well as things like leaderboards and possible items. So go head on your quests, whether you want to learn more about the realm or just pick up some easy fame. We won’t judge either way.
You can unlock your apartment once you’re level 49, with keys available so that five of your friends can come and go freely. Once within the apartment, of course, you’ll be the one who gets to decorate the whole thing however you like. So you’ll have to wait out the maintenance today, but once that’s over it’s an apartment for you; check out the trailer just below to whet your appetite.
The spotlight also includes a brief interview with the creator and maintainer, Kiriak. He mentions that he plays a Gunslinger at the moment (although in previous games he’s usually gone for sword-wielding characters) and enjoys that he sees Revelation Online as less RNG-oriented than many other games of its type. So it’s a database and a spotlight on the person behind the database. Good news all around!
Players will need to complete a quest chain to become a mentor, then find someone to be mentored, and clear challenges together as a team on a daily basis. Success improves your status with the faction, eventually allowing your mentored companion to become a mentor as well, proof that you have in fact taught someone what needs to be known. If you like in-game rewards for helping out new players, it seems like something you may very well enjoy.

If nothing else, MMORPGs are doing their darndest to teach us to be multilingual. Case in point, Twilight Spirits has launched on Steam — but only in simplified Chinese. Brush up on your translation program if you want to take this action MMO for a test drive, then!
Twilight Spirits is supposed to be a crossover, east-meets-west style of MMORPG with some impressive slow-mo combat developed by Netease. An English translation may be forthcoming, although nothing is official yet. In the meantime, you can check out the Steam version or wait until June 29th, when the official site will release its own client.
We’ve got the open beta CGI trailer for you below!
No, really, there’s nothing horrible hidden here. Stop looking at us like that.
Yes, there is a powerful deity called the Lady of the Forest, but – no, stop running away! She’s benevolent and she wants players to help her keep the forest safe. There are even wishing trees! It really is just a nice place without something horrible lurking beneath the surface. Really. Stop waiting for the trick, sometimes places can just be genuinely nice.
