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 fantasy MMO recently published a pair of guides to its various leisure systems, starting with fishing. There’s a little more to fishing than waiting for your line to bob, so understanding the fundamentals is the difference between tasty success and stinky failure. Also, you could be sucked into a “fish battle” and find yourself floundering in the moment.
Perhaps you’re looking at putting the final, perfect touches on your in-game apartment and could use a few pointers. There’s a very small guide for that as well with a helpful tip if you accidentally mess up so badly that you need to replace a furnishing from the start.
Aw, damnit. My.com is giving up on its Allods-themed Cloud Pirates MOBA already. The company doesn’t say why, but given the successes of its other titles, we’re guessing it’s more about playerbase size in a bloated MOBA market than the company’s overall revenues, an assumption backed up by its low numbers on Steam.
“We are sad to announce that Cloud Pirates will be closing the servers on September 29,” says the studio. “It’s been wonderful sailing the turbulent skies with you, Captains, and we’d like to thank you for all your support.”
Beginning today and lasting until serverdown on September 29th, players will see doubled experience gain, virtually free in-game and cash-shop items, and free Steam DLC. You can also claim refunds on everything you bought since July 12th, convert your cash-shop currency to some of My.com’s other games (Skyforge, Armored Warfare, and Revelation Online), and enjoy the game’s latest patch, which rolls out today in farewell and contains custom matches, a new progressive PvE mode, and cash-shop currency as rewards for daily matches.
Players can sample a week of premium service for just $2 to see if they want more. So what does it include? Quite a lot, including a 10% XP boost for mob kills, daily gifts such as currency and world shouts, and being able to restore crafting energy while offline. There’s also a slightly more expensive option that gives both premium time and a choice of “boost” packages (battle, progress, or explorer).
September’s UpRising content patch will jack up the level cap to 79 and add in a brand-new raid, the Altar of Swords. The team is promoting this as the first “top-tier raid” that offers both a five- and ten-player mode as well as three difficulty levels.
The raid sounds quite foreboding: “The Altar of Swords seethes with an almost palpable aura of hatred and ordinary mortals find it stifling. According to the legend, the soul of Monethir — founder of the Blademaster School — still roams the Altar of Swords, waiting to pass on his sword techniques to those who prove themselves worthy.”
So what can top that? How about the upcoming Assassin class, which is scheduled to arrive in the game this November. However, the team is bringing it to Gamescom for attendees to experience.
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.
One of these is the fact that players’ apartments will change floors and locations every week, allegedly to encourage the community to mingle and make new neighbors. Add to this the fact that the inn hosting these apartments resides on the top of a turtle, and we’re going Inception with the concept of mobile housing.
To help players navigate some of the intricacies of the game’s housing, the team posted a starting guide with a few tips. Players can upgrade the size of their room as funds become available, and if they happen to be married in-game, their spouses can come in and rearrange all of the furniture without specific permission. Just like real life!
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.
Once players hit level 49, they’ll be able to head over to Tortoise Inn to buy their own slice of personal space in the game and get to decorating. There are small, medium, and large apartments from which to choose, and each can be equipped with all sorts of decorative and interactive objects.
Today’s Safe Haven update also activates the new archaeology system, introduces the events panel, allows crafters to start making their own furniture, and hints at “housing events” to come in the near future. Refresh yourself on Revelation’s housing system and take a tour of your future home after the break!
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.
Once players reach level 40, they’ll be able to purchase an apartment of their very own that is located on the back a massive tortoise that’s cruising around the world at a top land speed of 0.01 MPH. Aspiring interior decorators can deck out their new pad with 160 different objects and invite friends in to check it out.
As if that’s not enough, the update will also include a brand-new archaeology system that will let characters “unravel mysteries of various renowned landmarks in the world of Nuanor.” Presumably it will also send characters to ancient temples where they’ll have to outrun boulders and throw Indy the whip.
