Runes of Magic Celebrates 4th Birthday
Runes of Magic is celebrating it’s fourth birthday this week in a big way! From the 19th to the 26th players can look forward to bonuses in XP/TP and drop rates. There will be event quests to take part in and community events galore. Have a look at the official website for all the details of the events taking place.
SOE Forum Change Incoming
Anyone who goes on the forums of an SOE game may have noticed that the forums are slowly, one by one changing. Now a big change is coming as they switch to completely new forums. Players will have to register for new names. But if someone steals your name you’ll have two weeks to get it back just by emailing the forum admin.
