“I will say it once again and in doing so place my hand in the fire: there are no gods other than Ayvenas in our lands!” thundered angrily from the direction of the small rotund priest who articulated each word with sharp movements of his metallic holy staff, striking the boggy and overgrown terrain.
“Honourable brother Nobaltus, I would be eternally grateful if you could temper your enthusiasm so as not to upset the balance of this serene temple. You may also damage the sumptuous architecture which belies much of the history of this region so fervently protected by the Angren,” proclaimed the bad-tempered and greying man atop the stone tablet and rune-strewn ground.
The leader of the Order of the Dark Glory, a mace- and shield-wielding and plate armour-clad knight, had chosen an inopportune time to address his squabbling comrades when a tri-blade weapon stopped him in his tracks.
„Agnar tak’ash nay sa eriye!“ The cry was heard from all sides as the fanatic young warriors of the Angren left their hiding places in the temple ruins and proceeded to attack the expedition.
The latest update to Runes of Magic is now live. Update 3.0.4 - “The Mystery of the Temple”, gives you access to new content by opening the doors of the Raksha Temple, a challenging instance as well as new features, including the Juice Festival, a special event linked to the gathering of a very particular fruit: the Moonlight Grapefruit. Guilds now have new objectives like new guild quests and a new level for guild castles.
The Raksha Temple dungeon represents a major addition to the game. It invites you to explore a sanctuary in order to calm the anger of the gods, which are threatening the area of the Northern Janost Forest. For the first time in the game, six player groups will be given the opportunity to choose from three levels of difficulty: easy, normal and hard with the most difficult level planned for implementation in the next update. The harder the level, the better the rewards received when you manage to pacify the gods.
Guilds haven’t been forgotten and are set to evolve further. New quests are available for guild members on the quest boards in your home castle. These missions will allow you to gather the resources required to bring your castle to its next level, granting a new marble-like appearance. Furthermore, you now have the ability to build new buildings on the four extra slots implemented outside the high walls of your fortress. Guild members will also have the opportunity to enjoy two new guild mini-games, where you can test your dexterity to get interesting rewards.
Casual players will also be excited to hear that with this new update, a new event is happening in Taborea. The Juice Festival is historically linked to the Moonlight Grapefruit Tree, which blossoms once a year when the moon is at its highest point. This fruit, added to any juice, grants special powers. Every year, a huge festival is organized during this particular period and you are invited to join in. However, drinks are not free. If festival-goers want to benefit from the bonuses granted by the special juice, they have to take part in activities in the form of mini-games, where for example, you will need to collect items or serve other players juice.
