Finally, the time has come to make artifact gear much cheaper and easy. For this purpose we completely revamped the artifact system. Now the artifacts will be available for subscription for 1, 1.5 and 3 months. The maximum coefficient/modifier of artifacts will be 1.0. Your existing personal artifacts as well as momentary artifacts will be removed and pt will be fully refunded as vplat (with which you can also buy gear subscription).

Shards also will be returned. - What does subscription give? After receiving the subscription, you will get access to the game artifact store, where you can take any artifact you want on your level and coefficient that you had ordered. You can take as many as you like. They will not break down and etc. At the end of the subscription they simply stop working. No one will take them from you. For the PvM lovers we also have a pleasant surprise! Now momentary artifacts are dropped from monsters! We intentionally increased the drop rate of equipment items from monsters up to 40%. And 20% of them will be momentary artifacts with usual durability. Such momentary artifacts can be broken and repaired by the currently existing rules. The level of dropped artifacts will be equal to the level of items that can drop from this monster. You can even get 1.0 artifacts from usual monsters! No subscriptions for such momentary artifacts is required. You are free to share and trade them with other players. Stickers Sticker is a new type of item, a kind of unique drawing (old artifact image). With them you can paint any slot you want on your doll (character background). Simply drag a sticker from your backpack to any slot, and the picture will be assigned to it. Now, any gear that you put in this slot will have the sticker picture. Also, now using feature “hide equipment”, your opponent will not know what kind of gear is in a particular slot until you beat him Sticker has a durability of 10/10( can be applied to a slot 10 times), sticker image will remain on the slot even if changing equipment in this slot). The cost of the new sticker is 30 plat order cost + drawing fee, and if it is used up then a duplicate will cost just 10 pt. You can remove the sticker from particular slot with a special potion, which can be bought for gold. Reborn and Clones Reborn or "Rebirth" is activated when the player voluntarily starts the game from the beginning to get unique guilds and talents in favor of continuing the game beyond the normal limit. Reborn can be done at the star. You need to fulfill several conditions: Your character (and its clones) must learn all guild lessons up to 360. You should have enough RP (Reborn Points) to commit these acts. After choosing reborn your character will be teleported to the Seastone star. The character becomes 0 lvl. But all your guilds etc are saved on your first clone. You can switch between clones any time you want at any star. The clones of one characters differ by: Combat level (Religion level is shared). Race and race abilities. Learned guilds. Avi (default for the race or personal). All other attributes like: inn, bank, clan status, achievements, professions, etc are shared for all clones. For example, after choosing reborn, you can always go back to the star, and switch to the senior clone to participate in a tournament. After every reborn your maximum level will increase for 5 lvls(it is not required to reach 360 on newly reborn clone to add the +5 max to current 360+ clones), so by using reborn system you can reach 365 lvl on both your clones, and after choosing to reborn on second clone you can raise 370 on all of them and so on. When you character and its clone has learned all available lessons in usual guilds(360 max), he can start to learn unique lessons in Orders. There are 5 lessons in every Order (instead of 15 in usual ones). Each clone will be taught Orders separately. The 10 orders available now are: · Order of Courage:for every lesson character will get +5% HP · Order of Magic Power:for every lesson character will get +5% MP · Order of Mastery:for every lesson character will get 10% chance to take no durability loss after hit or taking damage · Order of Deadly Blow: every lesson gives 0.1% to kill the enemy with one shot · Order of Treasure Keepers: each first login to the game after the daily restart gives you a chest with useful alchemy potions in your backpack. The number of items depends on the amount of lessons learned in the Order. · Order of Adventurers: each lesson wll reduce by 5% the waiting time for repeat quests, as well as reducing by 5% the cost of refreshing boards · Order of Easy Steps: each lesson gives you a 5% chance that you will move between locations without the usual 2 seconds tedious waiting. · Order of Cargo: each lesson adds 5% to your maximum weight. · Order of Conquerors: each lesson increases the damage vs monsters by 10% · Order of Zeal: each learned lesson adds 3% to the final value of the Strength, Vitality, Agility and Intelligence You can learn Orders only with RP (Reborn Points). By the end of autumn, another 10 Orders will be added with the issuance of redistribution to all characters! Reborn Points is a special currency that can be obtained in several ways: • During events it will drop from monsters at the Plutonia area. • Every day, four times a day in every region one quest item will drop, which will give the quest for RP. The quest cooldown is 23 hours. • Potions for RP can be purchased with most of the existing currencies: Quest Points, Tournament Points, Valor Points, Conquest Points etc. Server Consolidation After installing the update to RU-server, we will start the procedure for server consolidation between RU and COM. The game client will have the option of selecting the main game language, as well as an option for those who know only Russian or English languages, or even both. All of this will be displayed in the list of players. Choosing the main language will change the client language and all system messages, as well as players who know only one language will not see the messages from other language players in general chat, trade chat, and also will not accept private messages in the other language. The darkswords.com remains the main site for English speaking community. Players from COM-server will receive a prefix “.com” to nickname and get one free nickname change.
