ROSE Online: Swims To New Story Expansion, Sea Of Dawn
7/25/2012
SWIMS TO NEW STORY EXPANSION: SEA OF DAWN

Finally Free The Goddess Luna!


Marina del Rey, California - July 25, 2012 - Gravity Interactive, a publisher of exciting massive multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs), is making quite a splash in their popular anime MMORPG, ROSE Online.  Rosearians can for the first time begin a new story arc, which brings back a fearsome enemy but with the hope of freeing the precious Goddess Luna.  Players can begin their newest adventure by trekking to http://www.roseonlinegame.com/ and join a thriving community with regular events, game updates, and plenty more.

Sea of Dawn introduces a number of game changes, including an increased level cap, new and exciting equipment, and the sharpest weapons yet, and numerous quests including a new arc to the Hero’s Quest, the main storyline of ROSE Online.   Players can head over to the ROSE Online page at http://www.facebook.com/playrose for all the latest game news, including screen shots, contests, and more.

Aeons before the Magic City of Eucar was founded, the shamanistic ways dominated the land; under the guidance of the Moon Pastors, who faithfully followed the benevolent Goddess Luna, she entrusted man with wisdom and power beyond normal mortal capabilities.  This unparalleled peace and prosperity was not to last as one of the Shamans, Laguz, stumbled upon the Teiwaz Doctrine, which paved the way for the dark God Hebarn to corrupt the charismatic Laguz with promises of limitless control.

By the time the other Shamans discovered his treachery, it was too late, and Laguz quickly took over or killed the Shamanistic order, and sealed the helpless Goddess Luna away, deep within the Sea of Dawn.  Thus began the age of Dark Shamans, which finally fell after the rise of the current-day Arumics.  But the damage was done, and despite their best magical efforts, it seemed Luna could not be retrieved from the terrible spell which sealed her away.

Now, a new age has dawned for Rosearians, as the Goddess Arua has charged her warriors with the task of freeing her sister Luna, and her followers have successfully re-created the bridge which leads to her prison.  Luna has waited patiently in her icy prison, saddened by all she sees; will you be the one to bring the first smile in ages to her face?

Level Increase, Talent Tree Improvements, and Mercenary System Now Live

Marina del Rey, California - July 19, 2012 - Gravity Interactive, a publisher of exciting massive multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs), launched today the start of open beta testing for their highly anticipated Maestia: Rise of Keledus.  Whether choosing to be a Guardian or a Knight, players begin by marching directly to http://www.playmaestia.com/, and Registering to be part of the exciting open beta, which includes the feedback from the closed beta testers. 

"Maestia’s closed beta test was a huge success, and we took the lessons learned from our players and GMs, and are already hard at work on a number of changes we’re excited to unveil during the open beta test," said Jay Choi, Chief Operating Officer at Gravity Interactive. "Much like the closed beta, we’re opting to keep this test period short and intense, so we can gather feedback from our most loyal players, with the game’s official launch not far behind!”

Numerous changes have occurred since the closed beta ended on June 21st.  Chief among them is players are now able to reach level 59, up from 40.  Though all past progress was wiped during the preparation for open beta, those who made it to max level during the closed beta retain their character name.  To support these additional levels, two new sections of the game are now open, as well as two additional dungeons, both available as normal and expert mode.

The open beta also unveils a vastly improved talent tree for all classes.  Abilities have been streamlines into three loose tiers, making it easier for players to distinguish various talent roles.  Rangers will now find bow skills in their topmost tier, while daggers will be the lowermost tier, with utility abilities sandwiched between the two.  Warriors will find their tanking abilities at the top, their damage abilities on the bottom, and utility through the middle.
Want to make some extra EXP and currency while logged off?  Need some help on a tough quest or dungeon?  Try out the Mercenary System, available now in open beta.  Players can loan out their characters while offline to the mercenary system, where other players may hire them for a cost.  When the player returns, they will have earned some extra experience and money, courtesy of the mercenary system!

Maestia: Rise of Keledus is a fully fleshed fantasy MMORPG that is free to download and play.  Follow a captivating storyline and launch head first into the eternal struggle for power and righteousness.  Join fellow players in parties to challenge Instance Dungeons or band together in guilds for small and large scale faction battles.  Adventure in an ever-growing world filled with quests, crafting, an advanced Mercenary system and more.

Ride epic mounts determined by your class, take on massive world bosses designed to challenge a full party of players, craft the strongest weapons and armor or tame magical pets to fight at your side.  All will be brought to life in a fantastical world filled with a lush art style showing both the dark and light side of a world thrown into a deep conflict that must be survived before it can be resolved.
