Patch 2.1.2 – ‘Storming of the Acropolis’ Expands Runes of

Elite District Presents Some Thrilling Challenges for

Today’s patch for Runes of Magic paves the way for brave
groups of adventurers to journey into the heart of the Naga Empire. Patch ‘2.1.2
– Storming of the Acropolis’ also adds the Halloween Pumpkin Festival into the
online role-playing game, together with some long-awaited elite skills for the
Elf classes and a territory expansion for the ‘Aotulia Volcano’ zone.

Until now, the huge Naga Acropolis in the volcanic territory
has been inaccessible. With ‘2.1.2 – Storming of the Acropolis’, the gates of
the fortress are now open and so is a special district inside the zone which
will challenge players. Countless elite henchmen occupy the walls and trenches
around the Acropolis – Naga troops have set up their camps all around. Solo
players don’t have a chance here; only well-equipped groups will ultimately get
to face off against the leader of the Naga army: King ‘Sharleedah’ will provide
a tough battle for adventurers and can only be toppled by extreme force.

In addition to the new district, patch ‘2.1.2 – Storming of
the Acropolis’ offers Elven players some new elite skills for their dual class
combination. Minor changes in the interface, new titles for their avatars as
well as fixing a few bugs have all been included in today’s update.
