Monthly promotions and reasons to keep playing in Midkemia Online.
Every month in Midkemia Online there are various events and promotions which are designed to reward the players of the game for playing. This month there are a number of incentives for us to play.
The first is a LOGIN BONUS, the login bonus for Midkemia Online this month is 3 Ishapian Tokens. By logging in at least once a day for 21 days out of 30 you will automatically be granted three tokens to your character which can either be traded for Credits – An in game currency used for character advancement/customization, for Gold, the in-game currency used to purchase items in character or the main use, to buy rare and exotic items from the Emporium of Wonders. I plan on spending my tokens on a rare item from within the emporium as most of the items add flavor to your characters roleplay and generally they reset to your inventory which prevents them from being lost or stolen which is unusual in itself for items in Midkemia Online.
Another ongoing promotion is that there is an option to buy limited edition Artifacts directly from the Midkemia Online webpage, rather than having to save up or buy credits in game. The most bought of these artifacts being a Cache of Ruthias bounty. These relatively cheap artifacts can be opened to bestow a random item from within the game to your character; this can be anything from a sum of gold or credits up to and including the rarest of rare and exotic pets, non-combat pets, mounts with special abilities and even the most expensive artifacts available in game. It is all down to luck. In the three caches I have bought I received a super cool Walrus mount, complete with red ribbon tied to his tusks, and artifact that allows me to gain double experience for 24 hours after activation and a bundle of credits worth around $60. In all I must say I have been very happy with this month’s promotions so far.
The third Announcement for the month of April was that at some point in April there would be an auction for unique and one off items for your character in game. This will be either the third or fourth time in the history of the game that the in game auctions have come around and from past experiences I can say that the items in the auction are insanely popular and everyone will want to get in on the action. I remember some of the auctions last time included chests that prevented any items inside it from losing decay time while stored, all weapons and armor in Midkemia Online have a decay value in Midkemian Days and the item is destroyed on expiration. These chests allowed the lucky winners to have a safe place to store their favorite equipment without worry. Another lucky player won his own Shop wherever he chose to set it up in game so that he could sell his wares to anyone who wanted to buy them at a great profit just by choosing a location frequented by many players and keeping the shop stocked. The only other shops that are player run are located inside the major three cities and are limited in number and can only be rented from the city at great expense. However the most sought after item was a custom made pet with custom abilities and emotes, and the great thing about this pet is that it is technically immortal as if it is killed it can be re summoned. This will never happen with the generic pets and mounts that can be bought in game, these pets will be designed entirely by the winning bidder.
The final part of April’s promotions is the Announcement of a Great Hunt which will start at 00:01 on the 29th of April and run until 23:59 on April 30th. I absolutely love Great Hunts, a great hunt is where all players will compete with each other over a 48 hour period with double experience and vie for points by seeking out and killing as many NPC’s or Denizens as they can, getting rewarded more points depending on the size and power of the things they choose to hunt. Everybody who participates in the hunt will receive a bonus of credits to their character for reaching certain checkpoints as they go while the top 10 hunters will receive an even larger credit prize and the person who gets first will receive a unique honors line in his HONORS list showing everyone in game how he came first in the Hunt. I get really excited for Great Hunts and in order to do as well as I can I have already begun my preparations by seeking out good quality commodities so that I can craft the best two swords I possibly can so that I can dual wield and take down my quarry as quickly and efficiently as I can.
Join me in Midkemia Online and take part in Epic hunts and awesome roleplay with a fantastic community of gamers and role-players alike.
