Here's the official release on the next chapter for RoM:
We are proud to announce Chapter II of Runes of Magic – The Elven
Prophecy. Release of Chapter II is planned for September in
2009, and completely FREE! During the Electronic
Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles, we already showed parts of the first new
content coming out in August, like the new region “Weeping Coast”.
With this first addition, the level cap will be raise to level 52. (and then
raise to level 55 in September)
As the name already suggests, one of the main elements of “Chapter II – The Elven Prophecy” will be the introduction of the Elves as a playable race. Coming along with a huge new background story, new regions and many new quests.
According to the legends, demons of human origin – having degenerated into underworld beings under the influence of the runes – forged an alliance with the nagas in ancient times. Together, these evil forces brought war and devastation to the world of Taborea. An alliance of elves and humans succeeded in banishing the demons into the void and drove back the Nagas behind a magical wall. However, when elven prince ‘Sig’aylas’ removed the holy sword ‘Arclight’ from the wall to defend his human truelove, the wall perished and the naga threat flared up once again.
You probably heard that there are two new character classes coming along with Chapter II, but here is more info: These two classes will add in as a perfectly addition to the already huge possibilities of the dual class system.
If you are not interested in testing out a new class or race, you don’t have to worry. New challenges await all experienced players in form of challenging dungeons, raid instances as well as new PvP modes. Due to all that new content, the level cap with “Chapter II – The Elven Prophecy” will be raised for all characters to level 55!
Another new feature will be the Combat pet system for the World of Taborea. Thanks to that feature, you’ll be able to actively train your virtual companions, so that they can help you in future battles.
So many new features are coming out! But that's not all! The ambience of the game will also be enhanced. The new regions and the old territories will benefit from an improved graphic engine. Sound and Music will also receive improvements by the renowned sound-studio of Dynamedion, to further extend the game experience!
