The Second Coming is Upon Us!

Luxembourg, 18 April 2012 –  Nexon Europe is pleased to announce that today sees the arrival of the latest update in  Vindictus, the ultimate free to play action-RPG.

Karok’s Second Weapon

Karok's second weapon, Cestus has finally arrived. Along with the new weapon, new skills have also been added so you can blast through anything that stands against you. Enjoy the new fighting style of Karok by testing out the bone-breaking abilities on those insignificant Fomors!

Transformations for Paladin and Dark Knight

From level 40, players have the ability to transform into a Paladin or Dark Knight. This time, along with Karok’s 2 nd Weapon update, the Paladin and Dark Knight’s transformation skill is no longer one skill, but two. Once the update goes live, Dark Knights and Paladins will have first stage and second stage transformations. In order to reach the second, players will first have to pass through Stage One.

Stage One Transformation

The Stage One Paladin/Dark Knight transformation is slightly weaker than the pre-update version. As before, transforming into your alternate form will give a significant boost to your character’s Attack scores, Stamina, and Hit Points. What the Stage One transformation loses is its sheer power. However, it makes up for the loss in terms of utility. The biggest hurdle for using the skill – the need for 10 Ability Points and a full SP bar – has been removed. The Stage One transformation is now a clickable skill available once per hour at any time.

Stage Two Transformation

Stage Two is the upgraded and more powerful form of the initial Paladin/Dark Knight transformation. If Stage One has lost approximately 25% of the power from the pre-update, Stage Two provides a 50% boost over the previous version. In addition to a brand new look and transformation animation, 2 new impressive skills are being introduced to Stage Two Paladin or Dark Knight.

New Avatar: Imperial Guards

Mercenaries, New Avatars from the Orient have arrived. Now you can join the ranks of Vindictus Imperial Guards. These avatars are on sale only for 2 weeks, so hurry!

In addition to the new Avatars are Power-Up Packages, Gifts from the Goddess, Avatar Armour and Hair updates.

Upcoming Events

From April 18 th – May 2 nd Vindictus will be buzzing with various events including the ‘Master of Cestus’ event for players who have completed the Cestus Mastery storyline, the ‘Double EXP’ event for inviting guild members to battle and the ‘Search for the Best Guild’ event where guilds receive prizes for submitting the best screenshots of their guild spirit.

Also, on the 22 nd April is the 2x2x2 event where players will receive 2x EXP and 2x AP for 2 hours to celebrate the new 2 nd update.
