[2024.02.23] Game Updates #12 - Arena of Avatars, Achievement Re-work, & More!


Recommended Posts

Hello fellow Arigoons👋

This week we would like to announce two major additions to the game: Arena of Avatars & Achievement Rework!
The Arena of Avatars [AoA] serves as an introduction to players who want to become better at raiding. However, the Hard Mode offers a more difficult challenge to fierce adventurers in our realm. With this new raid, players will gain access to two new rings, a new amulet that enhances all barrows sets alongside some new gloves with unique effects

Moreover, the Achievement Rework is long overdue as we have had heavily outdated achievements, lacking in rewards or not resolvable anymore. We've also introduced a new category called Accolades that allows players to take on bosses but with a twist, such as taking down Bork with nothing but a steel longsword! If you don't have the length and can only wield your dagger, don't worry! There are still other challenges to complete. As the saying goes; it's not about the size, it's about the method 😉 

I would like to also mention how much we've grown in the last couple of weeks and I would like to sincerely thank everyone who has supported us from the very beginning, we eagerly look forward to the future!

That's all for now everyone! Hope you enjoy the patch notes and as always, feel free to post suggestions or feedback in our Discord Server ❤️
