[VIN] Vindictus is Open!

MMOSite recently reviewed Vindictus giving it an “Excellent” (5/5) praising the game for its “Fresh gameplay style combined with great graphics and a well crafted world to explore.”

After months and months of anticipation, Nexon America’s latest MMO, Vindictus, has entered its official service! Nexon America opened the game with the Vindictus “Season of the Witch” Version 1.08 update which included the long awaited Evie character and community favoring changes to the token system. Vindictus is widely known as the best free-to-play MMO in the world and has introduced the next generation of games to players of free-to-play games with graphics and gameplay only matched by the best pay-to-play games out there. It is said that even if Vindictus went pay-to-play it would still be a smashing success.

Introducing Evie

Greetings Mercenaries,

Ever since we announced Vindictus, many players have been looking forward to the day when we would introduce Evie. Well, that day has arrived! Beginning October 27, Evie is now the third selectable mercenary in Vindictus!

As our way of welcoming Evie to the battle, we are introducing a special event for all players who use Evie. From October 27 through November 9, all Evie characters who reach level 15 or higher will receive a Free Hair Trade Coupon (30 Days) following the scheduled maintenance on November 9!

Here’s a bit on Evie’s background:

Evie is a powerful magician who supports her allies with both her spells and alchemical abilities. Wielding a staff, she summons golems, revives allies, and uses ancient magic to perform devastating attacks. While her cloth and light armor prevent her from handling enemies up close, it would be difficult to call such a masterful magician anything but a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield.
Not much is known about Evie’s past. While it seems clear that she’s from the East, this evasive young woman tends to smile and deftly dodge any questions about her history. An elegant enigma, Evie chooses to express herself entirely in combat.

A few of Evie’s skills:


Firebolt

Evie shoots a bolt of fire from her magic-infused staff. Mana must be gathered for a very long time first, so plan carefully. This spell has a very slow firing speed and range, but the damage caused is incredible.

Alchemy: Create Golem

Golems attack enemies for a fixed period of time. Be careful, as Evie takes damage when her Golem is attacked. If Evie becomes incapacitated, her Golem dies.

Healing

Evie can restore a party member’s HP. To use this spell, Evie must have a Healing Rune assigned to a Quickslot. Evie can select the party member to heal by pressing [ALT] with a number key or by choosing from the party window.

Be sure to check out all of Evie’s awesome skills and spells and don’t forget to participate in our special Evie event!
