Christmas comes but once a year! I am really anticipating about what will happen in ZO and what TQ will bring to us this Christmas! They have prepared a string of fun events for us! We won't find any repetitive level grinding in these quests; we can just get straight down to the presents, woot! I think they are pretty fun. Let us check them out together!

Newcomer Pack (December 24 – January 23)
It is a good chance for us to win gifts worth up to 500 dollars. From December 24 to January 23, if we register a new account and create a new character, we will be able to obtain a newbie’s Newcomer’s Pack. It includes lots of amazing items: Military Badge (30 days), 30 Double EXP Potions, 28 EXP Recorders, Lucky Core Gift Pack, 3 sets of Elite gears (the third set has an ultra weapon)…

We can open the Newcomer Pack once at each of the following level intervals 1, 20, 40, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100, 120, 130, 135, 140 and 145 to claim some great prizes. The Newcomer Pack will be sent to our cabin automatically after we register a new character successfully. And remember, don’t drop the pack after claiming the items, or we will not be able to claim other items when we meet the level requirement next time.

We can claim one set of Elite gears when we reach level 60, 100 and 145 for a total of 3 sets. What is more, we will be able to claim an ultra weapon when we reach level 145. We can check the item list on this page by choosing the “level” category.

Christmas Gifts Giveaway (December 20 – January 5)
From December 20 to January 5, we will get some points by purchasing TQ Point Cards and those points will be accumulated. The more point cards we buy, the more points we will get! That is to say, the better prize we will get! We will have the chance to obtain Lottery Tickets Bronze-Badge-(Event), Ultra Weapons and more!

Legend of Lost Treasure
We can open the treasure boxes outside the Steel Warship and get a nice prize! Just kill the pirates and we will be rewarded with ZPs and an EXP Module. Hmmm, sounds easy and fun, right?

Alliance Carnival
For players level 70 or above, we can find the appointed lottery place and Christmas tree, then we can play in the Lottery and get some amazing rewards! The Christmas trees will drop some Christmas Gift Packs in some random places on the Steel Warship at regular intervals. We just need to keep an eye out for them, and those gift packs will belong to us! There are no level restrictions, so we should remember to log into ZO during the holidays and pick up those fabulous gift packs!

Snowmen Meltdown
There will be a Snowmen Meltdown campaign in Titan Icefield. We can find the relevant NPC and take part in this campaign to win some ZPs (bound). Is it too good to be true?

Fireworks of Xmas
During the event, we can claim or buy the carnival fireworks from a NPC and set off the fireworks in the designated area. We will have an amazing opportunity to watch a fantastic fireworks show together!
Let us have some fun together and I wish all of you a merry Christmas!

Demon Rising: The Vengeance Flame of Alamut!

Posted by AndyLee Friday December 11 2009 at 2:57AM

We have no idea who sown the wind, but actually it is us who must reap the whirlwind!

“Time for revenge! None shall escape!” Avenging Alamut gazes down upon Cronus from his castle with fury in his profound eyes. Wearing dark ornate armor and holding a blazing sword, he is the avatar of vengeance!

Once the most brilliant warrior of Cronus, Alamut knows his land well. By offering the soul and body as the final sacrifice to the demons, he has become more powerful than before! That’s how he annihilated the defense of Sunset County in few days and built his fortress for his overwhelming ambition.

Capturing Alamut’s fortress will require all your cunning and strength:

1. Battle strategy is vitally important here. First, don’t forget to bring rare items you’ve got from the former instance quests. You’ll find them useful once you enter the fortress. Demon warriors are much tougher than monsters in Cronus; some will cast spells to confuse and entice you in order to take you out of the action, others may explode suddenly after being killed and devastate the surrounding landscape. Remember, a Paladin will be of great assistance for this battle.
 

2. Terrain is no longer simple decoration. Pay special attention to the traps littered around Caria Fortress! The blizzard, thorn, thunder, rock, flame traps will cause your HP to continuously decrease, there even are some traps that contain a mix of effects and will stop you dead in your tracks. Teamwork is important, but there exist some traps that deal a huge amount of damage and can only be activated by multiple players. So try not to get caught in a blast. Be smart, or your team will die easily. There are also some barriers needing you to collect right items to disable them.
 

3. Side quests often provide hints to solving the main quest. We made sure they are not too difficult to complete, and always offer generous rewards along with an immersive storyline. So, if Alamut is too tough for you to tackle, try finishing some of the side quests.

4. Before reaching Alamut, you will receive a warm welcome by his loyal cadre. Their unique skills are deadly to the uninitiated, so I will give you a brief rundown of Alamut’s elite guards.
Inferno Inquisitor.
His faith in Alamut is unmatched. This Templar followed Alamut to the Demons when the lord lost his faith in humanity. The loyalty of the knight was such that Alamut granted him the Flame Cyclone and Flame Amor skills, giving this inquisitor the power of hellfire in both attack and defense. His dark strength can drag a target close to him and deal a critical hit.
 

Countess Sutton
Known worldwide for bathing in the blood of the virgins and infants in an attempt to remain forever young, this infamous witch was born to be evil! She can easily release a cloud of sulfur gas that enrages anyone nearby and causes them to attack anything they see! Anyone attacking her will receive rebounded damage equals to what she suffers.

Abyssal Overseer
Appearing to be the follower of Alamut, this demon knight is in fact the eyes and ears of the Demon Lord placed to make sure the Lord’s plans will run smoothly. Born as a demon knight in fire, he is second only to Alamut in this fortress! This infernal master of flames can summon fire monsters, create his image to attack enemy with fire, and summon some burning ivy to sprout and entangle targets on the ground.
 

5. Want to know about the final boss Alamut? There are still mysteries in this world. Maybe somebody in the fortress will know.

Today is a good day to die. What, you want to live forever?
 

Will a New Version Save a Struggling Game?

I’m not concerned with KOEI, Blizzard, Ubisoft, EA or Square’s products, they sell good and will become better in the future. This time let’s take Conquer Online for example.


I come, I see, I conquer

Successfully launched in 2003, Conquer Online, with its well-designed system of PvP, acceptable graphics and gameplay, has charmed thousands of gamers across the world. Its F2P game style had attracted many players’ eyes, especially MMO fans. If you ask a veteran CO player about that time, they would likely refer to it as the “good old days”.


In the good old days when we were young, lol

My friend has a good saying about it: Ready, aim and fire! Rain petals accompanied by swords falling from the sky or a trail of energy that stretched across the floor were powerful weapons in the hands of a skilled player. Honestly speaking, compared with World of Warcraft and Aion, the engine running Conquer Online might be a bit oudated, but it is a PvP MMORPG, and the designers were smart enough to establish a game balancing PK system. Everything served Conquer Online’s gameplay well.


Death and ghosts, the iron code of PK

But when balance is lost due to a designer’s mistakes, there leaves only complaints. If you visit the Guild Area or PK Arena during the days, much of the time you do not see any movement; the Nobility Rank consumes a lot of money from the server, increasing the price of various items; some skills are obsolete in PvP, and I’m curious about why they were designed; the last, which considered to be a vitally important element that forces many veteran to leave is, you can become an invincible player in a matter of days by paying lots of money.

Well, I am not saying that the new Conquer Online is valueless, the horses and some stuff are cool. But I’m one of those players that liked it better when conquer didn’t have those things.

That’s why the new Classic CO makes me feel that Conquer Online will have its revival. The most important fact is that Battle Power and Talismans, as well as the cash shop have all been removed. Battle Power was the key for anyone to become a winner in any PK field. Its removal proves that you won’t be forced to get into the cash shop and purchase something just to be competitive in PvP.

Take Classic Liberty server for example. All people here are equal now. Everyone is working for what they have, no big spenders destroying game balance with cash. There are no idiots running around who have spent tons of money PKing everyone in their eyes that they know (by checking Battle Power) is much weaker than them. Now the server is full of players reliving the good old days.

An idiot makes the world full of ghosts, holy shit!

I’ll show you guys the real battle that they are looking forward to in the following.

An archer can take out pretty much anything but a warrior with ease. But the warrior or a Tao can be the demise of that archer. A Tao is the answer to Trojans. Without all those plus ears the Tao has his way with them. The warrior has good defense as designed from the start. His shield provides extra defense from archers and Taos. You work more as a team with your friends or guild mates to take out your enemies. Each class has his own distinct purpose in the fight.


All classes players in Conquer Online

All the above are my personal opinions, lol. As I have no idea what will be in the future. There also exist many players who consider the new Classic Conquer Online as not enough of a change, including some Conquer veterans.

There are 9 questions in total that do not have definite answers and make veterans hesitant to rejoin. I’m trying to catch new things as they come to keep every guest here in touch with news. Maybe the answer will appear in my next article. God knows. xD. Oh, and I sincerely believe that this applies not only to Conquer Online, some are also challenges to all MMORPGs.

1. Will more servers be actually implemented?
2. Will the designer actually listen to players’ opinions?
3. Will they act according to player’s need?
4. Will new things like cash shop coming out?
5. Will there be new bots and botters?
6. Will patches be available for all servers without any conflicts?
7. Will more old players or teammates come back to share this game?
8. Will a new engine come out to improve its gameplay in the future?
9. Will the players be happy then?

Generally speaking, the new edition of Conquer Online will have a positive effect on Conquer Online’s marketing. That’s my point. The rest is up to you guys. Not only Conquer Online, if you are not a Conquer player, you can talk about games you are playing that have made a big change. Will these changes benefit your games or not?
 

Eudemons New Expansion Demon Rising

Posted by AndyLee Friday December 4 2009 at 6:31AM
Login or Register to rate this blog post!

Eudemons Online is a free 2.5D fantasy mmorpg, inspired by the Greek Mythology. Following the successful release of The Divine Path in the first half of 2008, they will be receiving another major update on December 11th called "Demon Rising".

Compared with The Divine Path, Demon Rising’s story is set with a darker theme, corruption. Those who once were noble and faithful abandoned all they once believed. Close friends turn into bitter enemies. Evil defeats good when good becomes evil.

New Maps & New graphics
A vast and complicated new quest region will be open to adventurers. Players will be thrilled when they see the fabulous landscapes. The maps are full of unexpected dangers and traps. Players have to keep their eyes open for hidden dangers every second once they step into the filed.
 

New Monsters and Bosses – High BP & High Damage
If you think handling them will be a piece of cake, you could not be more wrong. Even the small ones are very intelligent and endowed with some advanced abilities. Some of them can be focused on a specific class. Sometimes they will suddenly change their target of attack or cast special spells. You would instantly be hypnotized or even paralyzed for a short while in the heat of battle.

New Quests – High Difficulty & High Paced
The new expansion improves the quest system so that players don’t have to spend time waiting in lines. Once ready, players can set off on their journey of a legendary quest line. There are 5 independent quests, along with some other sub-quests. The Bosses and monsters encountered are many and extremely tough.
 

New Gameplay Mechanics –Teamplay of Different Classes’ Combination and Strategic Cooperation
Surviving the battles depends on the decisions players make throughout the entire quest line. They need to make decisions carefully, build a great team, and make sure they will back each other! Because, really, anything could happen.
