Joymax, leading online game developer and publisher widely known for longstanding quality titles including Silkroad Online, has revealed the details of the battle, power and glory behind the legendary ?Excalibur? in the recently released MMORPG, Knight Age.
??Excalibur? – the legendary sword filled with mystical power – is a well-known fable and beloved story, and within Knight Age it exists to bring both power and glory to the most deserving knight. But players shouldn?t expect this legendary weapon to sit idly for passerby?s to test its worthiness; in Knight Age, to wield the legendary Excalibur players must fight for it!?
Excalibur represents three crucial mechanisms in Knight Age: the battle for the weapon, the power it imbues to its wielder, and ultimately its glory. Excalibur is a PvP battle against 100 knights that begins once per day when the elusive sword appears in the middle of a mysterious lake. The participating players, regardless of what level they are, will be transported to a special field where their goal is to run to the center of the lake to pull out the Excalibur sword. A mixture of talent and choice will help players as they try to free the Excalibur. They also need to defend it from other players, but either way, the reward is worth the work needed to be put into getting the sword.
The player who does get the sword acquires a buff known as ?Blessed by the Sword?. This buff will allow the wielder to land a critical hit for every swing the wielder makes and also naturally heals the wielders? health and mana points even during battle. The sword will return in the center of the lake for the next day. The player doesn’t lose anything when the sword leaves the player?s side, because the player will be bestowed with glory through a title for once possessing the legendary weapon.
?Though many titles exist within Knight Age for everything, from leveling up to making friends, only those who have brandished the Excalibur are given the honor to hold the title ?Blessed by the Sword?! Titles are not simply names but they also hold power within. Owning the rare title ?Blessed by the Sword? earns players special buffs to their stats which are permanent to their character, not to mention pretty awesome to show off your achievement to others!?
