January 08, 2013 - Leading online game
developer and publisher, Joymax, today announces the upcoming
launch of a major update for the world-renown free-to-play MMORPG,
Silkroad Online. "Ignite Silkroad Part 3: Undead’s Revenge"
is the third installment of many changes that started in late 2012
which also features a variety of large-scale events. Silkroad
Online has been on a roll of changes and surprises for the past two
months with skill balance enhancements, permanent beginner
benefits, and much more.
This month's update brings an ominous approach with the
introduction of a new terrifying monster: Death Bone!
Following the death of last month’s raid monster event,
“Roc Time Attack!”, the rage and terror of so many
deaths has had an unintended consequence. Born from the Roc’s
ashes Death Bone arises -- a massive skeleton monster with
powerful skills that will instantly knock the players silly. Death
Bone will claw all players close to it, and then launch a
near-death attack for the unfortunate players who did not flee in
the following 5 seconds. Players must always be alert and
aware when fighting Death Bone.
Death Bone is the most challenging boss yet, requiring a full
raid at maximum level; the epic event “Roc Time
Attack!” will feel easy in comparison. Residing deep
within the Roc Mountain, players who have both defeated the Roc and
completed a challenging quest chain can call up this undead
monstrosity. The effort is well worth the investment, as
Death Bone not only rewards the best EXP gains, but also 13
th tier equipment, the highest gold reward, and
Starting January 15
th for a limited time, this dungeon will be open to all
players above level 80. A Key of Bloodline- an item which allows
players to enter the dungeon- will be given for free (the key is
usually obtained through high-level quest). Rewards such as
Monster Summon Scrolls and Pandora’s Box will be given just
for participating in a battle and posting a screenshot to the
official Silkroad Online Facebook page!
Missed the “Roc Time Attack!” event? The Roc
will return on January 8
th for a limited time. Players can find out more

Online's Facebook which is now accessible through the game with the
