Challenging new high-level content coming soon to Runes of Magic
In less than two weeks, on 12 June, the successful MMORPG Runes of Magic will be expanded with its fifth chapter, Fires of Shadowforge, and the doors will be opened to a surreal and hostile land utterly desolated by firestorms. In the Ancient Kingdom of Rorazan, mechanical golems and spirits go about their dastardly business and players will also find the new high-level instance, the Aeternal Circle, in which four powerful rune guardians challenge the courageous to gruelling battles.
The Ancient Kingdom of Rorazan is situated in the west of the new continent of Kolydia. For generations, the inhabitants here lived in peace with one another. However, when underlings of the demon mage Maderoth released an elemental being, the King of the Fires, from his centuries-long imprisonment, a violent explosion erupted. The resulting blaze reduced vast expanses to nothing more than wasteland. The only remaining inhabitants are the spirits, mechanical beings and fire elementals capable of surviving this blasted terrain.
In the north of Rorazan, players will find the entrance to the new high-level instance, the Aeternal Circle, available in two different levels of difficulty. Four powerful rune golems have fortified themselves here, and after each boss battle, a riddle will have to be solved before players can teleport into the next area. In the final battle, players will pit themselves with sword, shield and spell against the über-powerful Da‘dalodin.
