The highly-anticipated commercial release of NHN Corporation's free-to-play MMORPG Karos Online is just around the corner on April 9th, and NHN is kicking it off in style with celebratory events and goodies to drool over!
Following the grand server re-opening on April 9th, players will be able to loot Celebration Cakes while hunting in Asmara, which can be consumed for super speed buffs, traded to other players and used to complete a quest for one of three fantastic items: a 12-slot Leather Bag, a handy Job Specialization Certificate or a rare White Tiger mount!
There are also treasure-filled Gift Boxes waiting for those who fight to reclaim Tokens of Honor from the goblin hordes ravaging Lupinel, and that's not all: throughout April, all characters on the new server will become eligible to win generous prize bundles containing potions, mounts and other items -- just for leveling up!
Finally, all new characters will automatically receive a special Newbie Potion Pack to get them off to a great start in the game. These packs will also be available at OnRPG -- details will be posted in early April.
April 9th also marks the opening of the shiny new Karos Gold item shop, where players can choose from a selection of helpful items, including:
• Protection Stones which prevent the loss of weapons and armor from failed enchantment
• Protection Capsules which prevent the loss of items upon death
• Guardian Angels to reduce experience loss upon death
• Mortuary Tablets for resurrecting on the spot
• 'Lucky' Fishing Rods and Mining Picks for increased chance of gaining multiple fish and ores
• A variety of Potions including Strength, Recovery, Rejuvenation and XP Boost
The Karos Online launch is sure to be a memorable event, so don't forget to mark your calendars -- that date again is April 9th!
