"Lands of Despair" - the latest content update for the hit free to play game Runes of Magic is now live. It seems to me they are definitely getting the hand of this "having a hit free to play MMO" thing. This ROM update is absolutely HUGE!
New instances, level cap increase, dungeons, expanded storylines - frankly way too much additional content to continue to list here:
Venture deep into two new, perilous, high-level zones, each bringing along a brand new instance for both groups and raiders, 6 and 12 player instances. Participate in the new Public Encounters and grab those new quests waiting for you, leveling all the way up to 67. Heroes that wish to ensure the safety of the old lands can help defend against the impending invasion in the World Battlefield.
And did we mention that you now get the option of choosing a third class for your character? Pick up the 3rd class quest in Varanas and teleport to the new starting area, the Coast of Opportunity, to level-up your new class. New adventures and pitfalls also await in the neighboring land of Xaviera.
