Winners will be chosen by the number of “likes” the video clips receive on the YouTube page. Only the videos which include the use of Rams and Catapults during a Fortress War will qualify.
Paying Honor to Legendary Players
After the content update, the best-ranked Hunter/Thief from each server will receive an 11th grade Comet Seal (Reinforcement +8) weapon item.
Eligibility is based on the top Hunter and Thief on each server on April 11th.
All of the events are based on server time, which is Korean time.
In addition to the events, there are also new content updates in Legend
VII: Rise of the Thief-Hunter for Silkroad Online. There is now the new emphasis of jobs, as they will take on a bigger role for players.
Game play will become more dynamic and will involve a new level of skill. Specialize into new skill sets, dependent on the job and the character’s level. A player’s job title will change as they complete their job advancement tasks. Gain reputation based upon the job activities to earn important ranks – a higher rank will help the player earn additional attribute bonuses.
Other new elements to the game include the trade and triangular conflict system, which has been revamped where players trade and complete smuggling quests. Launch into evolved conflicts between Thieves and Hunters, where users can obtain unique Job Items through Job activities and trading towards additional materials that can craft or reinforce Job items. Hunters gain profit by protecting caravan Trader NPCs and sweeping smuggling operations, while Thieves gain profit by raiding caravans and smuggling. Players can also participate in consignment trading where items are consigned to an NPC, or work the economy in target trading, where players directly trade by transporting goods which can earn a high profit but is far riskier.
What trading quests are available will depend on the job players pursue.
Other updates include a new avatar, Saint Knight, and a newly designed Craft System, where users can create a variety of craftable items, including Siege Items like Battering rams and Catapults designed for Fortress War, or dive into Trade and Alchemy Items’, including improvements to the Fortress War and User Interface for more exciting and convenient game play.
The widely popular MMORPG puts players deep into a historical fantasy experience, joining the Chinese and European civilizations along the Silk Road trade route. Traveling across Jangan, from China to Constantinople, players can make their fortunes as merchants, prey on the rich as thieves, or be protection-for-hire as hunters. To celebrate the official launch of Legend VII: Rise of the Thief-Hunter for Silkroad Online, various web events to be announced soon will be prepared for players.
