Another fan favorite is the newly added“Rested Experience” system where players earn 50-100% EXP gain buff depending on how long it’s been since the player logged in.? Players who aren’t able to play as often as they would like will have the special buff welcoming their return!???

What about those who have already leveled to the max?? Players who would like to re-experience the vast Silkroad world once again with the new changes should not miss this special event!?“Start at Lv. 101” is for all players who have a maxed out character and are now able to create a new one of their choice starting at level 101.? This rare event will only last for three more weeks, so players should grab this golden opportunity now!?


These new exciting features are only the tip of the ice of last week’s grand update.? After the successful launch of“Joymax Day” event, Joymax is presenting all current players with a whopping 1000% EXP gain item as a special thank you.

On a different note, there seems to be a change of balance between two regions and a rumor of a certain powerful cry being heard near the villages. What could it mean?
