  1. The world is full of mysteries, monsters and even rewards! In Revelation Online there are adventures abound. Every dungeon is different, with traps to avoid, challenges to overcome and some good old carnage thrown into the mix. SOLO DUNGEONS With no party members and only your own strength and skills to rely on those who are brave enough may venture into solo dungeons. 5 PLAYER DUNGEONS Putting your teamwork to the test five player dungeons have up to five difficulty levels with each difficulty changing the rewards gained. WORLD BOSSES Six mighty bosses roam free across the open world. Guilds will battle amongst themselves in order to gain the rights just to engage one. Persevering and defeating a world boss will be worth it however as they have loot...epic loot. RAIDS Gather ten players and test your guilds resilience! You may attempt to complete a raid on hardcore and then try your might on the ultimate twenty-player version to earn great rewards. The world of Revelation has much to offer to every kind of hero, whether they seek adventure, challenge, fame... or rewards! If you would like to put yourself or your guild to the test, sign up for Closed Beta or gain guaranteed Closed Beta access with a Founder Pack!
  2. Last week we told you more about gearing up in Revelation Online. This time we’ll reveal how to boost and upgrade your equipment! SHARPENING (BOOSTING) ITEMS All items in Revelation Online, apart from bracteates and amulets, can be upgraded at the blacksmiths with sharpening stones. There are a total of 16 sharpening levels — the higher the item level the more levels available to it. Each one boosts item stats by several percent within a specified range (for example, 2%-5%). The chances of successful improvement depends on the amount of resources invested and it can be brought to 100%. But the result of the sharpening remains random. Each upgrade level can be attempted again to obtain a better result. Repeat attempts are carried out separately for each level an unlimited number of times. UPGRADE TRANSFER If your character needs to change their gear and you are reluctant to lose the upgrade level already obtained you can transfer the upgrade to the new item. To do this you will need to collect a number of resources and find an armory. You need resources to transfer the upgrade without any losses. If you do not want to spend, one upgrade level will be lost during the transfer. If you transfer an upgrade from a stronger item to a weaker one, it will be free to keep the level. You can transfer the upgrades between different types of items. For example, from weapons to armor. AWAKENING ITEMS In Revelation Online any item of a hero's battle gear can be awakened: stats gradually grow when the character wearing the gear kills monsters. There are 16 item awakening levels. Random extra stats appear at levels 5, 9 and 13. The color the stat is highlighted in corresponds to the strength of the bonus they provide (from lowest to highest - green, blue, violet and gold). In contrast to sharpening, awakening occurs automatically. By collecting special resources, you can activate up to three extra stats for the awakened item of gear. You can unlock a fourth stat for a separate fee from a special NPC. PRECIOUS STONES With the help of a special NPC you can create slots in items for precious stones. 1-2 regular slots for PvP and PvE stones (result is randomly determined) and 1 extra, which requires the use of a special resource). Stones can be taken back out if you want. 4 of the same stones can be joined into one higher quality stone. As well as regular precious stones there are rune stones, which are only inserted into bracteates. Sign up for Closed Beta or gain guaranteed Closed Beta access with a Founder Pack!
  3. The Falmari - the favourite children of the sea god. They look both human and amphibious and live only on the coast, spending half of their time in the water. Members of this race will often visit Sulan, the sea capital, located in the west of the continent. But if you want to get a better look at these magnificent creatures that have emerged from the waves, the best thing to do is to visit the seaside. The Falmari build their light but sturdy homes upon wooden stilts on sandy beaches. In their simple but characteristic architecture, you will easily make out the patterns of shells or large fish fins. They prefer cold blue tones that remind them of the sea. These sophisticated creatures adore music and art. The inhabitants of Sulan regularly visit the beaches to observe how the girls of this sea race dance and hear them sing or play wondrous musical instruments. The Falmari have exquisite manners and refined speech. Despite their apparent fragility, they are brave warriors, hardened by a centuries-old enmity with the Darkscales, who have attacked ships and coastal villages from time immemorial. As you explore the world of Nuanor, you are sure to meet members of this race. It is not easy to earn their trust, but if you manage to gain a good reputation among these creatures, they will be happy to welcome you as a guest and share gifts of the sea with you. Valiant heroes can wear traditional Falmari accessories as a sign of respect. Sign up for Closed Beta or gain guaranteed Closed Beta access with a Founder Pack!
  4. Occultists deliver devastating attacks but can also use powerful spells to fortify and heal themselves and their allies in war-torn lands. From a distance, they utilize powerful buffs to help their comrades, enhancing their battle abilities. Occultists carefully oversee the balance between the human and spiritual realm as the Queen of Souls retains them as envoys in the human realm. They can peer deeply into the souls of their victims, and as interrogators, their skills are unsurpassed. If you would like to master the balance between darkness and light, sign up for Closed Beta or gain guaranteed Closed Beta access with a Founder Pack!
  5. WHAT IS AN MMO? To begin with, Revelation Online is an MMO that is designed with the players' needs in mind. So, what is an MMO? Each MMO is like a rebirth. It is a world, a life, where you encounter a different version of yourself and others. Extraordinary MMOs must create a complete world waiting to be explored; in this world, the enjoyment comes not just from excitement or having your senses stimulated or even having fun battling with others. What's important is that this world is a utopia that we long for, one that surpasses reality. PERCEIVING THE WORLD Outstanding MMOs create a vast and complete world. When you're in this world you can't help but feel small, and thus you have a desire to explore it more. After working on popular action games for over 10 years, it is difficult to make the decision to make a true MMO game with a pure aerial view of the world. On the large scale we have the creation of cities and fortresses. On the small scale there is every NPC you meet, the various maps, quests, races, organizations, monsters, adventures and different styles of gameplay. All of these must be carefully designed and balanced! We all understand that the only way to make Revelation Online into a truly living, breathing world is to make sure all these details are taken care of. During production, the Revelation Online Development Team bore a lot of pressure and questions, but our passion is unshakable. Our team is made up of a group of people who were all touched by games at some point in their lives. They are working hard to create their own ideal world in the hopes that it can touch others. Of course the inherent nature of the game is to transcend the real world and allow players to experience things they wouldn't be able to experience otherwise. For example, you can fly over walls and run gracefully across the water; you can be an unstoppable hero or you can live a more peaceful life by selling two-for-one skewers on the street. An inn on a turtle's back, a floating palace, or a comfortable ride on an airship as you fly around Ausgyth. All of these are brought together in a harmonious fashion in Revelation Online. Finally, the ears are the most acute organs for experiencing this world. We invited a fantastic master game composer to create the background music in Revelation Online. Whether it’s the sound of flowing water, cicadas, a weeping willow blowing in the breeze or rain falling on lily pads, every sound effect has been carefully chosen and processed to make the experience rich and vivid. This concludes the first part of Revelation Online’s basic design concept. Stay tuned for part two where we will talk about characters, their progress and battles! If you would like to experience this world for yourself sign up for Closed Beta or gain guaranteed Closed Beta access with a Founder Pack!

  7. Revelation Online offers a vast range of possibilities to make a truly mighty hero! It’s not enough to simply obtain the maximum level and pick up a good set of equipment. This game offers a very deep development system that enables you to optimize character stats in line with the challenges you face. Today we’re going to focus on the following forms of development: Experience and new levels; Guild Bonuses; Development Options (builds); Talents for each of the skills; Special Skills; Milestones; Soul Grid. Let's take it one step at a time. EXPERIENCE AND NEW LEVELS Players can expect a fascinating journey from level one to the maximum level. Complete quests, watch storyline cut scenes, explore dungeons and battle against other players — all of this will gain your hero valuable experience and progression to the next level. Soaking it in at the Hot Springs or training with a mentor are also great ways to rack up experience points. In Revelation Online, you have total control of the speed of your hero's development. Starting from level 40, your character will not automatically move to the next level. Instead, when your experience is sufficient you can decide for yourself when to move to the next level and when to wait, collecting suitable weapons & equipment or improving battle skills. GUILD BONUSES Developing your guild base also develops your character. In exchange for special guild resources, you can train your character's special skills and upgrade their stats: defenses, resistances, maximum health, maximum mana, attack power, spell power and healing power. To this end, the guild leader creates a special building. Apart from upgrading character stats, it also provides access to various other opportunities. For example, it enables you to explore skills that your character can use to move around the world. DEVELOPMENT OPTIONS (BUILDS) Level up to unlock new skills. By investing development points into each of them, you can create unique builds for different situations. The game allows you to save several builds at the same time and switch between them as necessary. For example, you can invest your points in different skills, some more suitable for PvP and others for PvE, then simply save both combinations and use them interchangeably. TALENTS FOR EACH OF THE SKILLS All skills have their own development tree — a range of additional modifying talents. These talents can increase inflicted damage, reduce mana consumption, burn or freeze targets, and more, allowing you to create a truly unique build, selecting the most effective combinations. The higher your character's level and the more milestones you unlock — the more talent points become available to you. You can get them by spending experience points and Asterion Taels, earned by completing quests and killing monsters. SPECIAL SKILLS Special skills are super abilities unique to each class that become available as a fight progresses. The more often your character uses their special skills, the more powerful they become. Use these skills at every opportunity and their level and efficiency will grow. You can also spend points earned from guild quests to hone your special skills at the guild base via a special NPC. In this case your special skills level will grow passively, sparring you a few visits to the base. Each special skill has a development tree. Activate a branch to imbue your skills with special properties. For example, you can modify one of the Spirit Shaper healing skills to also confer an armor boost. To modify special skills, you will need special items from PvP, PvE, or completing dungeons. MILESTONES All characters have 6 milestones, each of which provides a whole range of bonuses: Stat boosts, aerial skills, an increase in maximum health and attack power, unique class mounts, and much more. There are different requirements for achieving each milestone, but most are linked to character development: Reaching a certain level, using talent points and stats, improving your special skills, and so on. Those who carefully progress through plot quests can obtain a special item that they can use to activate each milestone. SOUL GRID The Soul Grid is a special disc, into the center of which you can insert magic crystals. The better the quality of the disc, the more slots it has. By inserting different combinations of precious stones, you can activate passive bonuses that boost character stats, increase resistances, or bolster your healing capabilities. Change the combination of crystals to achieve different objectives when required. This is just a brief guide on the opportunities available to heroes in the world of Revelation Online! In a future article we will go into more detail about the different aspects of character development and game mechanics. Revelation Online closed beta for Europe and North America is planned for the fall of 2016. Source: LINK
  8. The Ursids are a hardy race that serve as stewards of the mountainous forests of eastern Ausgyth. Their honesty is known throughout the land--as is their fondness for honey and other delicacies. Unlike the finicky humans to the south, the Ursids are highly adaptive to the environment, and are accustomed to weathering hardship. Protectors of the Wooded Highlands The Ursids inhabit dense mountain forests, where they live in harmony with the spirits and other beings. Unlike the humans at the forest’s edge, the Ursids live ascetically, taking only what they need and nothing more. Whether they are busy catching fish or coppicing hardwoods, the Ursids never forget their sylvan provenance. Bearwold, a Bustling Hub The Ursids thrive in great numbers along the southern precipices of Snowpine County. With their thick fur and muscular build, their homes generally consist of crude huts or caves--just enough to still the gusts that rage through the night. Their honest, no-nonsense manner has earned them the respect of neighboring tribes - except possibly the Wingar. Several of the languages spoken in Nuanor include idioms that characterize these bear-like beings. When the southern merchants of Ausgyth first learned of the Ursid’s upright bearing, trade relations grew very quickly indeed; the bears were to the point about what they wanted--honey and smoked fish, primarily - and how much they were willing to pay for it. As trade grew in frequency and volume, merchants from various races, including the Ursids themselves, established Bearwold to facilitate commerce. Promises Unkept With a trade boom came profiteers, goblin traffickers and other unscrupulous types that sought to exploit the Ursids’ simple way of life, to the detriment of the Ursid clans. Some dangled promises of unlimited honey and other luxuries to lure swathes of Ursids to human settlements, only to serve as laborers, virtually slaves. This has thinned the native Ursid population; coupled with growing tensions with the Wingar rival tribe, the more far-sighted among the bear tribes are beginning to speak out on these injustices. Revelation Online closed beta for Europe and North America is planned for the fall of 2016.
  9. These apartments are instances that will be located in the inn on the back of the giant turtle that you can’t have missed in our trailers. On the base floor of the inn is a large lounge where you can meet up with other house owners and on the other floors of the building will be the apartments. These apartments can be fully decorated with over 160 different types of furniture and come in two wildly different themes. Some of this furniture can be crafted through the profession systems in the game and some will even be rewarded for completing quests. Players will get the freedom to arrange the furniture but also can create different spaces for a walk-in closet, a bedroom and even a bath with a spa. Players don’t have to enjoy all of this on their own, they can give the key to five of their friends and they can port to the apartment from any location in Nuanor. Some of the decorative belongings are interactive: the heroes can comfortably relax on the couch or in a chair, take a bath or try on a suit in the spacious closet. Some interactivity will be available to the guests, but will only be fully unlocked to the player’s spouse. The number of objects to use in the apartment will increase in the future and owners can expect to get a garden, pets and staff to help around the apartment. The Housing System will all be available soon after the version in the game goes into Open Beta.
  10. The brand new trailer shows the roles and play styles of non-gender locked classes of Revelation Online. Player can stand their ground as the Vanguard and soak up the damage for the team or dish out damage from the safety of the backline as the Gunslinger. The classes of Revelation Online are: Blademaster: As secondary tanks and close combat specialists they combine their twin blade damage with escape skills allowing them to cut through wave after wave of enemies. Their heavy reliance on melee attacks leaves them open to ranged attacks. Vanguard: These steel walls rely on melee combat. Their chief strength is surviving battles of attrition, rather than dealing burst damage. Swordmage: While wielding a falchion they are focused on powerful magic damage, specializing in area of effect spells. They invest all of their energy in sharpened elemental magic, leaving them relatively vulnerable to focused attacks. Occultist: They deliver a wide variety of dark offensive spells, from damage-over-time, to area-of-effect attacks, to those that deal damage while siphoning enemy health. Occultists can directly heal allies as well. Spiritshaper: As summoners and healers they are relatively easy to play and have great survival skills. They are highly sought after on teams for their support and deceitfully high damage output. Gunslinger: With high precise damage they hunt down individual targets from afar or use advanced weaponry for mid-range deterrence. Gunslingers have few control skills and are less effective in close combat. Players can pick their own play style by freely distributing points to their core character attributes like strength and dexterity past level 40. All classes have diverse skill sets, with over 20 unique skills, which can be further upgraded past level 49 to match the chosen play style. Players are in full control over their class progression.
  11. Publisher and developer NetEase are excited to unveil the enigmatic history of the upcoming version of Revelation Online, a new MMORPG set in a fantasy open world. The brand new trailer shows one of the central legends that make up an intriguing lore of the game. Next to various PvP and PvE modes, flying without boundaries and an enormous open world, Revelation Online offers a thoroughly detailed world and storyline, designed to immerse players from the first minutes of gameplay. In Revelation Online, players will go through a dozen of main story chapters and more than 100 hours of additional storylines. Jiang Nan, a popular Chinese fantasy author, is the creator of the universe, the mythology and history of Revelation Online. He is the author of several best-selling Chinese fantasy books, as well holding the title of best-selling author of the fantasy genre in 2015. It is also noteworthy that the storyline of Revelation Online will be used as a basis for two TV series. As it has been recently announced, the first of those will premiere in China in 2018. An animated series has started development which will be available online later as well. Revelation Online closed beta for Europe and North America is planned for the fall of 2016.
