Epic 8.3 - A Wind of Change

EpicThe path to becoming a true hero is long and troublesome. And even after I finally mastered my profession I still had the feeling that I could tweak my skills to be more effective and powerful. But as I learned the hard way, it is impossible to reach the peak of perfection on your own.

 

So I gathered every single piece of information I could find and sent a letter to the wise men across the seas. So did the rest of my legendary guild – and, as I heard, the members of the opposing guilds as well. It was many moons before we received word from the wise men, but finally they sent us a scroll, bound to the feet of a dangerous harpy, documenting all the changes that were needed in order to reach perfection.


Everything we were looking for was described in the scroll and we are very close to deciphering the very last pieces of the puzzle!

 

We will need it though, as a huge adventure lies in front of us. I already told you about the battles we will have to put ourselves into to finally tame those ferocious bosses and the underground dungeons where only the strongest will survive. On our new daily quests we will need all the power we can get in order to loot the shiniest of all armors! So here is an excerpt from the papyrus the wise men sent to us.
