burda:ic Showcases LOCO - Land of Chaos Online’s Most Popular Wizard, Merino the Goldenbell

MUNICH - July 15, 2010 burda:ic, a leading publisher of online games worldwide, today revealed screenshots and new information about LOCO - Land of Chaos Online’s smallest yet quite powerful hero, Merino the Goldenbell. During the Closed Beta Test, Merino was the character most favored by those who chose a spellcasting class.

Don’t let his sheepish look fool you; this wizard of tiny stature is not to be taken lightly. With damaging AOE spells and humorous-yet-effective debuffs, Merino can play rough with the best of them. As he is the master of hypnotism, the mind-boggling combination of his ultimate skill“Golden Bell” with“Sympathy for Sheep” will render groups of enemies defenseless while his allies go in and pick off the little lambs like a pack of wolves. Skillful players can combine many different spells in a similar manner to baffle adversaries in the Land of Chaos.

Merino, as well as the rest of LOCO’s heroes, will be available to wreak havoc in the Land of Chaos when the Open Beta launches. It is currently slated to begin during the first half of August.
