Runes of Magic updates with Fall of the Demon Lord
Runes of Magic has updated its servers today with a new patch. This patch introduces a new 12 man raid, the Demon Stronghold, which pits players against a Demon Lord and its henchmen.
Also introduced in the patch is the fourth part of the Epic Quest, known as the “Great Barrier.” A new public encounter area near Aotulia Volcano, called Bloodbath Valley, will pit groups of players against waves of Naga and their allies in a bloody battle. Elves have had their level 45 and 50 elite skills added into the game, and various other fixes, including adjustments to the crafting system, have been made.
The update also begins the Flower Festival, Tagoria’s own version of Valentine’s Day with events and rewards for everyone.
