Tales of Pirate: Union War Expansion Review

Since August 15th 2007, the new expansion – Union War has been launched in Tales of Pirates (http://top.igg.com). Right after the pirates updated their game client at no extra charge, the first impression they got when returning to the new ToP world was– honor, friendship and an adventurous spirit were even more important than before! To understand how it works, we would like to provide you with a full introduction to all the exciting elements of Union War!

Mirage Cities
In the new expansion, 3 mysterious cities have opened their entrances for top level (level 70+) pirates! Here even the lowest level monster could trigger a tremendous panic if it was discovered in the outside world! The three new cities are actually three new perfect leveling sites for top level pirates of different professions, with Mirage of Thundoria being for Champions and Crusaders, Mirage of Shaitan for the magic classes and Icicle for the sharpshooter classes.

Abaddon Expansion
This is actually a huge extension of the Abaddon System of the Caribbean Chapters. Except for the 4 original mazes, another 14 are available with even more terrific bosses and larger rewards as well! Once inside, pirates will have to confront extremely tough rivals such as the (level 80) Despair Knight, (level 100) Black Devious Angel, (level 120) Abyss Lord… and legend has it, the dreaded (level 200) Abyss Supreme!

Chaos Argent
Well, we can say without exaggeration, this is no place for the faint of heart! After entering the map, you’ll find the once popular, peaceful and harmonious capital city of Argent is now no different than the most chaotic and bloody battlefield! For the time being, only the toughest swashbucklers can survive cold-blooded PK rounds with their counterparts, and escape from horrible monsters who can launch attacks at any time and any where, to receive the great honors and vast fortune available here!

Mentor & Disciple
As a casual and friendly cartoon-styled MMORPG which is equally popular among hundreds of thousands of male and female players, the Mentor & Disciple system provides another wonderful opportunity for more experienced players to extend their friendship to new players, as well as giving new players a chance to develop skills and new friendships! More importantly, this is a complete win-win strategy for both the Mentor and the Disciple. Once the relationship has been established, Mentors who take good care of their students will be able to receive abundant reputation which is quite important in the new version of ToP, with the Disciples benefits including lots of gold, attractive items and reputation points as well. With one mentor allowed to take up to four disciples, ample rewards can be had by those willing to share their knowledge and skill. This will not only strengthen the friendship among pirates who share the same tastes, but help them to build up lots of new powerful clans, too!

New Key Word: Marriage
“Love” has always been one of the important aspects of ToP! ^O^ In Union War, this key element has been further emphasized again– pirates can now wear shinning wedding dresses and hold sensational wedding ceremonies in game! Even the adorable fairies can get married in Union War! Married fairies will be able to give birth to a new fairy, which will in turn possess funny skills as well as magical spells!

Undoubtedly, a genuine pirate must be full of adventurous spirit, and to a certain extent, we could say the interest of gambling is also included in that kind of spirit. Now in Union War, the funny gambling system will provide a perfect chance for pirates to test their luck! If they’re lucky enough, they could win incredible awards from sacks of gold to elite items!

Mystic Blackmarket
For pirates who are business minded, the well-known yet mystic blackmarket in Union War is a perfect place for them to realize their dream of having it all! And what do they need to have? Well, most importantly, an adventurous spirit!

Production System
This is a key part of Union War. Pirates can utilize it through the mastery of the newly available skills Cooking, Manufacturing, Crafting and Analyze. Once they possess these abilities, they will be able to create numerous sturdy weapons, tough armor, and exquisite gems. What should pirates make and how do they make them? Well, among the numerous options available now, pirates can decide for themselves!

Furnace of Immortality
The Furnace of Immortality is an equipment NPC located in the far east of TOP Chinatown—Spring Town. When they go to it, pirates will be able to purify and improve their gear, extract precious gems and repair their useful life skill tools.

The glorious rebirth of the characters, flying freely in the sky, with the blessings of an aura—well, in this cartoon-styled world, there is nothing impossible, noting unbelievable! Once pirates reach Level 75 and get the required reputation points of 9999, they can go find the Goddess on the Caribbean Island to realize their holy reincarnation!

New Apparel
The golden armor sets have brought a new shinning color to the Ascaron Continent. The all-new cool wedding sets will have pirates’ hearts full of enthusiasm and joy. With new apparel coming, Union War will begin many new fashion trends.

New Story Quests
In ToP, the numerous quests have kept pirates busy everyday. Now, due to the new quests in Union War, they will be even busier. The diversified story quests will allow pirates to experience more adventure, take on more challenges and also give them something to boast about later in a pub!

New Activities
One of the distinctive features of ToP is the in-game activities that are held often. In Union War, several more can be enjoyed—

The Hexathlon is a specifically designed activity for pirates of different levels who would like to take a shortcut to level up! Corresponding Exp reward will be given after finishing every quest. The more difficult the quest is, the more exp will be given. As long as you can complete all its 6 quests, you will be rewarded with considerable experience!

To become the winner of The Challenge Genesis, pirates will have to sail around the world! Courage, persistence and good sailing skill are always indispensable!

Above are all the basic introductions of the Union War Expansion. So far in Tales of Pirates, the developer has already released three expansions, namely the Spring Town Chapters (with an Eastern Territory theme), the Caribbean Chapters (with a Caribbean Mystery theme) and Union War. Every expansion is another great step forward for us and our Players!
