C9 Update: The First Half of 6th Continent is Now Live
May 13, 2014 (Seoul, Korea) – WEBZEN, a global leader in next-generation free-to-play games, unleashes the first half of the 6th continent, RAEBIN for the dungeon-based Action MORPG, CONTINENT OF THE NINTH SEAL (C9).
Starting May 13, 2014 (Global Server Time), C9 Players will get a level cap increase to 67 and will be able to jump into five new dungeons; Hidden Valley of Wind, Fragment of Kodes, Dying Forest of Eternity, Syutereunen Logging Camp, and Abyssal Underways.
Along with this content update comes the newly revamped skill book system and new unique/normal items for each class of Fighter, Hunter, Shaman, Witchblade, and Mystic.
The newly revamped skill book system will make it much easier for C9 players to acquire skill books from the dungeons in the 4 ~ 6th continents. Players can now combine their skill books with a Cosmos Stone to randomly strengthen their potency for skill book set effects. Also, players can combine two or more books with an Artisan Crystal for a chance to get a different, more powerful skill book.
To celebrate the new update, WEBZEN invites C9 players to a daily PVP quest to acquire event tokens that can then be exchanged for a random item from a gift box including 5th Continent P-rare Skill book, Bless of Badhbh Cath, many different types of Elemental Gem and more.
Furthermore, last week the C9 team announced a list of C9 Guild Tournament Matches for each server. Teams of 4 guild members, who have characters above level 50, will compete against others for a unique all-guild buff! Full details of the tournament can be found on the C9 official website http://forums.webzen.com/Topic2686532.aspx.
CONTINENT OF THE NINTH SEAL (C9) takes players to the fantasy world of Glenheim, in which they fight against evil forces and gigantic monsters. Utilizing extremely powerful melee, ranged and magical skills, players will battle swarms of evil, demonic forces using FPS style controls in a huge, dungeon-based 3D world.

Character archetypes, skills and the combat system in Archlord II
Dublin, Ireland – 8th May, 2014 – WEBZEN, the pioneering free-to-play games developer and publisher, reveals details about character archetypes, skills and combat in Archlord 2.
Promotional trailer is available on the official WEBZEN YouTube channel at: http://youtu.be/hZZZHFVCR0s
To provide an engaging and a largely unrestricted environment, Archlord2 introduces an effectively classless character system that will allow players to adopt any role in combat, depending on the type of weapon a player uses.
There are four different types of weapons in Archlord 2, reflecting the number of character archetypes or combat roles available to players. Equipping a weapon of a specific type will give players access to a set of skills that corresponds with a specific archetype. Using weapons of a certain type will build proficiency with that weapon type and allow players to access additional passive and active skills.
In addition to this classless system, Archlord 2 offers an engaging combat system featuring so called chained skills.
Chained skills can only be used in conjunction with each other and only in a fixed order. In combat, they are used as combo attacks. Players will be able to start a combo attack by using the first skill in the chain, and a successful attack will enable next skill to be available for a certain time. With perfect timing and right order of attacks, chained skills will allow players to inflict great damage to the unaware monsters, but most importantly, to other players.
To provide as much information as possible before the Close Beta Test commences, the Archlord 2 Community Management team is working on an official game wikia page. To find out more about combat system, available archetypes and the lore of Archlord 2, visit: http://archlord2.wikia.com/.
Additionally, WEBZEN confirms that the game will be available in English, German and French language versions. In order to deliver the highest quality, the WEBZEN Dublin localisation team will translate almost 2 million words to support these languages.
Archlord 2 is currently in pre- registration, and the players interested in participating in the closed beta can pre-register their account on the game’s official website at http://archlord2.com. To increase their chances of being selected, players can also join an additional daily draw on the official Archlord 2 Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/archlord2.
ARCHLORD 2 is a medieval fantasy-based MMORPG that takes place in the mysterious and dangerous world of Chantra.

They will be able to satisfy their thirst for power by participating in enormous PvP battles holding up to 400 players, and fighting to claim the ultimate prize and to become the Archlord – the world’s supreme ruler.
