Revelation Online’s ShadowBlade expansion introduces a new class and major class perks

My.com announced this morning that it’s plotting a new expansion for Revelation Online. It’s called ShadowBlade, yes with CamelCase! The studio is promising a questline for a motorbike (hell yes), new class-specific questlines, and class-swapping gear, all of which sounds nifty. But the headline feature is of course the Assassin class itself.

“In this expansion, the highly anticipated seventh class, the Assassin, will step out from the shadows of Nuanor to make its lethal appearance. Highly trained at silently stalking its opponent, this class is a melee expert skilled both in daggers for short-range combat and chain weapons for mid-range assassinations. It is also the only class in the game with stealth skills, changing the overall gameplay and allowing players to wait for the perfect moment to ambush enemies.”

There’s no date given for the launch, just “soon.” Check out the new trailer!

Revelation Online’s desert hides an ancient civilization and its robot factory

If shifting sands and certain death doesn’t warn you away, you just might discover the mysteries of an ancient and long-dead civilization buried underneath the deserts of Revelation Online.

This week’s zone spotlight in the MMO is for Scavenger’s Borough. As the name implies, the region is more of a lawless scrabble under a harsh desert sun. Yet there are interesting locations to discover and a trio of factions with which to contend as players make their way through the area. Plus, there’s a robot factory. For real.

“While the dangers that lie within Mech Citadel are well-known, hardy adventurers plumb its depths, hoping to uncover long-forgotten technologies of the Fire Civilization,” the team posted. “The abandoned military robotics factory is a popular destination for the fearless.”

Jukebox Heroes: Revelation Online’s soundtrack

Eastern MMORPGs have a great shared legacy of incredible soundtracks, ranging from Aion to Lineage II to Final Fantasy XIV. And while there are both standouts and generic-sounding OSTs, it’s very unusual for an eastern game to feature a western composer.

But I suppose if you’re going to do that, you would do yourself well by recruiting from the best. I’m guessing that’s what happened with Revelation Online, which hired World of Warcraft and Overwatch Composer Neal Acree to score this fantasy title. The west-meets-east design here sounds a little bit odd and a little bit off to my ears, especially considering how Acree attempts to create a very Chinese-sounding album for a very Chinese MMO.

Was he successful? More or less, yes. It’s a decent soundtrack, nothing that I’m going to praise to the high heavens, but one that I won’t drag through the mud, either. I think that the best thing I can say about it is that Revelation Online’s score is that it’s very pleasant. And sometimes that’s exactly what you need when you’re sitting down to relax and play a game for hours on end. Let’s take a listen.

Go treasure hunting in Revelation Online’s Karstwald

If you follow Revelation Online at all, one thing you will notice is that the game continues to post spotlight articles on different systems, characters, and zones on a regular basis. This is pretty helpful to newcomers to any game, really, and helps players get a feel for what the whole MMO contains.

As part of this effort, today the team posted a tour through the zone of Karstwald. Beautiful name, no? You probably won’t be surprised to hear that Karstwald is made up of a harsh desert landscape, although it’s not devoid of content. There are lost tourists to find, a treasure hunting activity, and a Windswept Gauntlet challenge.

“It is at least partially civilized,” the devs write, “even if the most popular areas involve the infamous Black Market in all its dodgy glory. Outside of that, it is also home to a fortress that is specifically designed to not only ward off invasions by the wolvern tribes, but also the demons themselves, making it a vitally important location no matter what opinions may be of the environment.”

Halloween events across the MMORPG verse, 2017 edition

Hey, you. Yeah, you, dude leeching candy from the bucket you bought “for the neighborhood kids.” And you, lady still trying to decide between “Princess Leia” and “lazy zombie” for your costume (go Leia, duh). Put all that aside and get into some MMOs instead! Halloween is only one night in real life, but in MMORPGs, it goes on for days or even weeks. Some studios will probably even forget to turn it off! Others will let you run around with a flaming pumpkin head mask for all eternity!

Here’s what we’re looking at this year for Halloween across the MMORPG verse.

Revelation Online lets you trick-or-treat from the comfort of your web browser

Here’s an interesting Halloween notion from Revelation Online: letting players trick-or-treat whether they are playing the game or not.

As of the event’s start yesterday, players can simply log onto the website and head over to a trick-or-treat page to choose between two doors to see whether they got a goodie or not. If a treat is found, it is delivered to that player’s inventory. The best part? This process can be completed every hour from now through November 1st — that’s a lot of potential treats! There’s even a five-person legendary mount that’s part of the trick-or-treat loot table.

In addition to web trick-or-treating, Revelation Online is running a couple of contests and has redecorated the official site to be more seasonably appropriate.

Revelation Online’s Eternal Chasm raid comes in three difficulty modes

Endgamers, Revelation Online’s update today is all about you, as My.com’s just dropped the Eternal Chasm raid, a “high-end raid for those that can handle its twisting layouts and waves of draconic evil.” In fact, while there are two different 10-man difficulty modes for the dungeon, there’s also a 5-man edition. Good news; it turns out that multiple difficulty modes for raiding is something My.com is willing to do to make its content appeal to lots of players. If only other big studios would step up.

The studio’s promising secret bosses and a rare fire-dino mount in addition to the regular ones:

“Stygian Siren: Haunting a long-forgotten ghost ship, the Stygian Siren is longing to seduce everyone who dares to go aboard.
Lightning Kirin: This magic dragon uses lightning powers to electrocute its enemies within seconds.
The Three Gatekeepers: If you want to descend deeper into the chasm, you have to put an end to these towering elementals that are forged of Steel, Fire, and Earth!
Flameborn Tyrant: Are you ready to taste some flames? This fiery beast won’t go down easily. But once it does, it may serve you as a loyal mount.
Ravenous Wretch: This poisonous giant resides in the swamps of the Eternal Chasm and is swift to anger. Beware of nature’s wrath and be sure to bring a proper antidote!
Devouring Dragon: Watch your step – this creature does exactly as its name suggests: it swallows you up.
Ice Queen: Frozen Onslaught, Ice Shrapnel, and Sword of Ice are just some of her abilities. If you don’t want to end up as a frozen statue, you better end her reign!”

Farewell to My.com MOBA Cloud Pirates, which sunsetted over the weekend

If you blinked, you missed it: Cloud Pirates shut down over the weekend.

My.com announced that it was giving up on its Allods-themed Cloud Pirates MOBA back at the end of August; the game’s last day was technically September 29th, although when we tried to stream it Friday, it had already shut down, frustrating our farewell effort.

At the time, My.com didn’t explain the reason for the sunset, but we assumed it was simply a matter of its low numbers on Steam. The game’s western port had only been known for a year; it hit early access in February, then launched in April.

Our condolences to those affected by the shutdown. There’s a little bit of chatter on the game’s subreddit, including a screenshot gallery of the last days of the game, plus check out Last Level Press’ final video of the game.

Revelation Online adds in a new level cap and new bosses in the Uprising update

It’s time to get better than you ever thought possible in the latest Revelation Online patch. Heck, better than it was possible to get, even; the patch raises the game’s level cap to 79, allowing you to reach new heights of power even as you push your way through a new dungeon floor in the Mech Citadel on its Scour Dungeon version. There’s also the new Altar of Swords dungeon, the new Azure Dragon Guild tournament, easier soul grid unlocks… lots of nifty stuff, in short.

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.

Revelation Online offers tips on battling carp and laying carpets

Has Revelation Online’s fishing system reeled you in yet? Does it captivate your life hook, line, and sinker? Do you live for that moment when you can shout, “Oh my cod, I caught the big one!” Are you wishing that there was a minimum sentencing of three years hard time for dad jokes?

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.
