Darkon's Saga VIII: Operatic Fall

This weekend: Darkon's Elegy of Madness continues

This weekend, return to Darkon's Elegy of Madness saga. Log in and battle through his recollection of the Trial of the First Observatory. Discover secrets that transcend the boundaries of space & time as the full truth of Astravia's origins are revealed.

Darkon crafted a series of wicked new rewards to help you fully embrace the insanity. Talk to Drago after completing this weekend's story update in /firstobservatory. Log in and battle to collect Aurola and Suki's gear this weekend!

Monster drops:

  • Ancient Creature armor, helms, and tail
  • 7 Boss-themed house items (no spoilers!)

Merge shop:

  • Aurola's Armor
  • Aurola's Coat cape
  • Princess Suki's Armor
  • Princess Suki's helms + Gauntlets

Featured Rares: Sakura Blossom + Seraphic Surveillance Sets

Madness awaits in our story update, but the Featured Gear Shop's additions will soothe your spirit. Find the Spring-themed Sakura Blossom Kimono and Seraphic Surveillance sets available in your game menu until May 20th.

Class + Guardian Tower + Server Updates

Thanks to your Gold donations, the Battleon town Guardian Tower has been rebuilt + restored! The new art is up and the /tower map has returned!

Class Changes

  • Health of the dummies in /classhall have been rounded off, they now do small amounts to damage to interact better with mana regen, and have monster types

  • Fire Dragon Scales quest in /firewar has been increased to 2500 gold and xp, and mobs now drop x1 Fire Dragon Scale at 100%. The full explanation for this change can be found in this Design Notes post.


Plus, Captain Rhubarb rolled out a few new updates to the game servers:

  • Fishing tradeskill bug fixes
  • Mod reports will remain even after players log out (that means players can't evade reports just by logging out anymore)
