Latest Runes of Magic Patch Brings New Content
Patch 3.0.2 – Warnorken Castle went live today and brings several new features to Frogster Entertainment’s Runes of Magic. The patch is named after a new 6-man instance called Warnorken Castle, but 3.0.2 also brings with it the much anticipated pet system. Players will finally be able to raise pets which can aid them in battle.
Also added with this update are mounts that can seat two people. I first saw this feature in Mabinogi, but it seems to be a growing trend among MMORPGs. Battle of the Immortals and other recent games boast mounts that can accommodate multiple users.
Like Gates of Andaron, Runes of Magic has been called a ‘WoW clone’ but has plenty of original features to help it stand out.
A slew of bug fixes, class skill changes, and other alternations were made. Players who want to stay informed should read the full patch notes listed below.
