Updates | Free Online RPG Fantasy Game MMORPG DarkSwords
The parameters on regular artifacts of 3 wear types: waist, chest and neck have been modified. Check the artifact stores for details. A few helms for magic users (220th and 260th levels) have also been added.


We are updating regular (not personal) artifacts in order to make more players interested in them. The regular artifacts which will be changed so they cost less then they used to will be removed from the possessions of their owners and the old cost of such artifacts in platinum will be added to their owners bank accounts. It is now possible to use Platinum Bars to add essences to regular artifacts as well as personal ones. However the regular artifacts that has not been updated yet will receive the increase of Wondrous bonuses as if they were artifacts with added grade of 0.4.

2007-09-20:
On the 19th of September one of our players passed from this world. Bane was dear to many of our players and a respected Hero until his health did not permit him to continue that part of the game.
Our thoughts goes to him and his family. You will always be a part of us..



2007-09-18:
The Cities have been cleansed from the thiefs!
"Sleight of Hand" has been disabled in the starting towns.




We have added an opportunity for players with personal artifacts to have their Arifact power factors affect Wondrous modifications of the artifacts. In order to do so the player needs to purchase a Platinum Bar (sold at the same shop Extractors are being sold at) and have it in their possession when they add an essence to the artifact.
The Wondrous Items page has been edited to reflect this change. Please keep in mind, that it will not be possible to add a platinum bar to an artifact while adding Reflect or Damage Shield bonus. Players who currently own modified personal artifacts will have to re-apply essences along with Platinum Bars to the items in order to get full bonus.






From today, unique monsters may drop special scrolls for creation of grindstone (picture above, first row) and catalyst (picture above, second row). These scrolls needs different ingridiense: piece of clothes, crystals (picture below). Scrolls has durability and can be used 30 times, giving 50 items each time.

By creating grindstone and catalysators you can use them in battle against monsters only. Grindstone increase physical damage, catalyst increase magical damage. These items needs to be used with every strike, since they are used every fighting round.
Players have a new command: \powerup, it turns off and on use of whetstonecatalyst.
Important Scrolls for creation of grindstone and catalyst, can only be read from backpack by double click on it by right mouse button. (Not possible to read them in labaratory).
