December 11, 2012 – Leading online game developer and publisher, Joymax, revealed today one of its main events for the upcoming second powerful update, “Ignite Silkroad Part 2: East & West Unite!” for its world-renown free-to-play MMORPG, Silkroad Online.   Beginning December 18 th, Silkroad Online will launch part two of its major update where an astonishing 15 million players worldwide can participate in its ultra exciting main event; “Roc Time Attack!”  To prepare for this mega update, new and returning players can visit to download and enjoy the game for free. 

The subtle rumors and powerful cries heard throughout the villages can now be put to rest with the start of a brand new event known simply as “Roc Time Attack!”  Not only will players battle against Roc, the fiery monster with large towering wings, but they will battle against three more equally challenging and frightening bosses all at once!  This oh-so-cruel two week-long event concocted up by the evil minds at Silkroad Online will begin next Tuesday, December 18 th, along with the East & West Unite update.  Just as the name states, ultimate domination comes by joining forces with other players.  And with the upcoming Skill Balance Enhancement, party playing with other races makes much more sense in the attempt to destroy the mega monsters!

Roc Time Attack Details:

Starting at various times, Roc will be summoned in two starter regions: Golden Plain near Constantinople in Europe and Southern Grassland near China, making it simple for anyone at any level to join this event!   If Roc is defeated within the time limit of 10 minutes, another Roc is then summoned -- and once the second Roc is defeated within the same time limit-- three unique boss monsters are then beckoned.  All three frightening monsters must also be defeated within 10 minutes in order to clear the event. If a mission is failed before the next summoning, the call is canceled and the event will come to an end. 

 Roc Time Attack will offer players a variety of cool prizes including epic drop items featuring diverse weapons and armor!  Both Rocs will also drop between 1 to 2 special Subscription Cards for a random player or two, and one subscription card gives the lucky winner jaw-dropping amounts of rewards; such as  massive Level Up, three million skill points and a player’s choice of any one set of armor!   Beginning with lasts week’s major announcement on Skill Balance Enhancements, Silkroad Online is heading up changes and improvements in a big way.  Fans that have already got a taste of the excitement last month have much more to look forward to and don’t want to miss out on this epic event!  All of the event details and more can be found at the official Silkroad Online website at   ###
