WHAT: MU HARVEST MADNESS

START DATE: November 6, 2013 at 11:00 am (Global Server Time)

END DATE: November 20, 2013 at 5:00 pm (GST)

DETAILS: A new harvest has dawned in the legendary continent of MU, which means it’s time for players to reap the rewards! During MU HARVEST MADNESS, all four servers (Valhalla, Helheim, Midgard and Yggdrasil) will compete in a bracket-styled tournament for exclusive in-game advantages and the coveted title of “The Ultimate Server.” From November 6 - 20, players can rally their friends together to vote for their server on the MU Facebook page ( https://www.facebook.com/MUWEBZEN). Servers will go head-to-head to make it into the Final Round, where the winning server will be rewarded with the ultimate prize - an exclusive weeklong EXP Rate, plus an increased Item Drop Rate and Monster HP Rate (November 27 to December 4). Alternative rewards will also be distributed to the remaining three servers for participating.

Round 1 – November 6 - 10

Round 2 – November 11 - 15

Final Round – November 16 - 20

WHAT: BOUNTY HUNTER EVENT

START DATE: November 13, 2013 after maintenance (GST)

END DATE: November 20, 2013 before maintenance (GST)

DETAILS: For MU ONLINE, a bountiful harvest season calls for a bounty of a different sort – rewards in exchange for hunting characters masquerading as staff members. Starting November 13 after maintenance, a group of imposters will invade the sacred land of MU. Players should be forewarned that these treacherous characters will appear throughout the game under false pretenses, by bearing the names of GMs and MU Team Members. Those who defeat these duplicitous creatures will be handsomely rewarded with a GM Gift Box filled with in-game prizes. Bounty hunters have until November 20 to track down these imposters!

WHAT: SHARE MU WITH FRIENDS

START DATE: November 15, 2013 at 11:00 am (GST)

END DATE: November 27, 2013 at 5:00 pm (GST)

DETAILS: There’s no better time to reflect on thankfulness and friendship than the month of November. During the SHARE MU WITH FRIENDS event, players can enter to win a V8MA Gaming Mouse from BLOODY USA by inviting other gamers to join the action for MU ONLINE. From November 15-27, players are encouraged to ask their friends to join MU for the first time and help them level their characters up to 80. For each friend that they refer, they will receive one entry into a raffle. Players can enter this promotion by submitting their friend’s server name and character name on the MU forums. Three lucky winners will be selected to receive a gaming mouse from BLOODY USA and seven winners will be rewarded with 1000 WCoins(P). (All “friends” that are referred for this promotion must have joined MU ONLINE for the first time during the event period. WEBZEN will verify the account information for each new user).
