Hero number 14 is coming to Vindictus in just over a month, and her name is Eira, the Void Witch. To celebrate, Nexon is hosting a registration event on April 30th and warm-up event leading up to her launch.
First, let’s talk about Eira herself, then we’ll jump into the details of the events. Since this is an action-combat MMOG, Eira’s abilities are the most important, right? How does she play? She carries two super-sized revolvers as her primary weapon, but that’s not all. She’s a Void Witch. In the world of Vindictus, that means she can open portals to another dimension to jump through, or in the case of her Infinity Shot and Waveform Collapse skills, shoot something else through them. For some reason, when things get shot through the portals they multiply, but when she jumps through there is only one of her. Perhaps that’s something to study in another column.
Her backstory revolves around an ancient god her family worshipped. This god was the source of their power and the cause of the family’s destruction. The storytelling trope dictates that all parents are either useless or dead, so if you guessed that Eira’s parents are dead, then you win the prize. However, did you guess that her sister was killed or captured by the god that her family worshipped? Then you’ve been reading TV Tropes, too.
Leading up to the big event on April 30th, Nexon is giving away Eira-exclusive items every day in what it is calling a Warm-up Attendance Event. These items include Abyssal Shards, AP capsules, and cosmetics for Eira. Some items are tradeable, some are tradeable within your account, and others are bound to Eira. Be sure to check the whole list for the dates that the items are available; there are different items on different dates.
Lastly, if you register for Eira before April 28th, you will earn the Eira reward package. This includes two different armor sets, a hair coupon, a new title, and an elite character slot. Both the registration and warm-up event start today. If you’d like to join in, hop over the official website to get started. In the meantime, enjoy these images of Eira in action.
Side note: The backstory art shows Eira in a short-short skirt, but in the in-game images she’s in shorts. Is this a product of “Westernization?”
