The countdown is over as the cursed ship Navis Lamia sets sail in Rappelz Turkey

Press Release

For immediate release

Dublin - 7th of July. Rappelz, the free fantasy MMORPG where you can tame terrible creatures and bring them into battle with you, completes its Open Beta phase in Turkey as the game enters commercial release on July 7th. Featuring fully localised Turkish content and support, MMORPG fans across Turkey can expect a series of events to celebrate this milestone.

Rappelz Turkey features the brand new Navis Lamia expansion which has seen an overhaul of the Trainee Island that new players experience when they enter the game. This features a variety of new creatures, the Navis Lamia, a cursed boat that offers a new dungeon for players, and brand new boss monsters.

There will also be a levelling event with lots of new awards, giving those who take part the chance to gain stamina savers, allowing them to progress faster through the game. These are automatically given to Rappelz players for each five levels they pass through.

Players will also have the opportunity to get a special reward each time they earn a rank giving them an enchanted armour for their rank and job. To get these, they just need to talk to a special NPC in each of the games cities. Stamina savers are kept for seven days, while the enchanted armour is theirs for fifteen days.

The gPotato team is also running a contest for Guilds in Rappelz until June 14th, giving Guild masters and their companions the chance to win precious and beautiful in-game gifts. To find out how to participate, visit the Rappelz Turkey forums at http://tr.rappelz.gpotato.eu/Forum.
