Blade & Soul’s 4th anniversary event includes the new Hunter’s Refuge

Someone's dropping a hit single.

Wait, we’ve had Blade & Soul for four years now? That doesn’t seem right, but it is in fact correct, as evidenced by several things including the fourth anniversary event running with the latest patch. Players can complete daily quests for currency, which in turn can be spent on valuable items and cosmetic rewards to ring in another year in the right style. There’s also new stuff in the Dragon Express to help players out along the journey, so that seems to tie together nicely.

This patch also brings in the Hunter’s Refuge, a limited-time zone that’s a twisted version of the better-known (and less twisted) Moon’s Refuge. The patch advertises that your goal here is to kill or be killed, which is perhaps a touch confrontational but will hopefully put you in the right mindset to survive in the zone as a whole. Check out the full set of patch notes to get a sense of what awaits four years into the title’s lifespan.

I looked at the hero image and thought it’s about some other game.

I’ve been away from BnS for a few months now. I’ve logged in sporadically but have not put in the hours like I used too.

It’s not that I don’t enjoy the game anymore, but as one who had played since launch, I found other games that peaked my interest.

But I’m coming back and continue to pay 15 bucks a month to show my support. This event could be the hook that gets me back on the regular too. Their birthday celebrations are always fun.

Why am I still in? UE4 update and what they claim it will do. Down come the invisible walls and the instance within an instance crap. The devs will finally be able to deliver the game they wanted to.

But I’m nervous. Korea HQ is calling the shots. And that doesn’t alwasy bode well for us.

I got a free hot pink bangle out of this! o.O

These events are usually pretty good for outfits and loot. Yup.

To be clear, I got mine through the Hongmoon Store. It was selling for 0 HM coins…and came with an outfit. I used my Goblin instincts back in WoW and swiped it before I had chance to ask, “Was this too good to be true?” Not sure it’s limited time offer nor was only one per account…but it was a hot pink bangle, what can say? o.O

Yup. That is how they do their event freebies. Instead of mailing you something they just put it in the store for 0 coins. And you are right. It is usually on per account.

Thanks for confirming that. The outfit, while certainly less breezy, suits none of my characters. As mentioned though, the bangle was to die for. <3
