Silkroad Online Wave 2 Updates Now Live
Joymax have just announced that the second phase of their “Ignite Silkroad” update is now live, adding a plethora of new content and events to their flagship MMO title. Originally releasing as a Korean title in 2005 Silkroad Online exploded onto the EU and US scene, boasting an array of never-before-seen features and mechanics, making it one of the most exciting MMO games of its time. Sadly the success was short lived as players were forced to queue for hours at a time due to botting players taking up the majority of the server slots.
Since that time Joymax has been relentless with new updates, hoping to return Silkroad Online to its former glory. The latest in this line of updates is their new “Ignite Silkroad” campaign that aims to improve on practically every aspect of the oriental themed MMORPG Game.
One of the more notable features of stage 2 is the new Skill Balance Enhancements. This complete overhaul increases physical damage for all characters and provides many adjustments in skill balances between both the European and Chinese races in-game. In addition, several new skills have also been added for both races, with a heavy focus on party play. Guilds will also be happy to hear that the party experience points buff has also seen a huge increase up to 20%, up from the original 5%.
If you’re new to the MMO scene, or you haven’t explored Silkroad Online yet, this new update is also a great time for beginner players. New players will receive a number of permanent benefits including a starter pack with a variety of helpful items. Rested exp has also been introduced giving all players the opportunity to accumulate up to a 100% exp buff.
The Joymax team have also announced an exciting lineup of events for December and January so if you’re a Silkroad Online fan, be sure to log in over the festive period.
