January 22, 2013 - Leading online game developer and publisher, Joymax, today revealed the secrets behind the origin of “Death Bone” for its ultra popular MMORPG, Silkroad Online.  In its latest event, players are challenged with defeating a terrifying monster … Death Bone; now the secrets are revealed on just how this menacing skeleton monster came to be. All players, new and returning, are encouraged to join this hell-raising event now at the Joymax portal

When Roc was a little bird his nest was stolen by his own family which caused him great remorse and almost led him to take his own life.  To overcome the trauma, he studied dark magic, but little did he know that this would cause something more terrifying than death.  Becoming the skeleton-like ‘Death Bone’ was not by his own choice.   As Roc began to practice dark magic, his power gauge lost its maximum limit and rose higher and higher and all of his glowing feathers were lost in the process. The only way to actually see the mysterious Death Bone is to get to the Roc Mountain’s nest!

Silkroad has upgraded the dungeons, known as Roc Mountain, the entrance level limit of Death Bone’s appearance has raised from level 80~106 to level 80~120. Slaying Death Bone won’t be an easy task but there will be events with benefits just for participating - merely witnessing the fury of Death Bone will earn players enormous prizes!

It’s simple to join and win!  Players must get the “Key of Bloodline” from “So-Ok” the famous event NPC and enter Roc Mountain to unleash Death Bone; the greatest monster resurrected from the death of “Roc the Monster Bird.”  Players who dare to try to prove the skeletal body of Death Bone’s existence with a screenshot that includes their character name at will be rewarded for their bravery and will earn a variety of cool prizes!

Every player who uses Key of Bloodline from January 15 th to 29 th will receive a Monster Summon Scroll.  Additionally, lucky players who use the Key of Bloodline will also get Roc Insignia, a special strength and an intelligence increase!
