Battle Arena - Chinese wall [Images]

Some pictures of the new Battle Arena "Chinese wall" appeared on Npcd00ms blog!
In this Arena, you can play the CTF mode!

Exclusive images from Silkroad Secrets:

HOT NEWS: Battle Arena - First images!!

I will post the very first screenshots from the Battle Arenas here!!

The screenshots are from Maya temple (or probably Indian temple). In this Arena, you can only fight the Monster Hunt game mode in teams (parties [8 vs 8, called Star], guilds [16 vs 16, called Moon], jobs [unknown size], random teams [32 vs 32, called Sun]). In the game mode Monster Hunt there will be monsters spawning. By killing them or killing a player from the opposite team your team will get points. The team with the highest amount of points after a specific time will win.
Killing a player: 6 points
Normal mob: 1 point
Champion: 3 points
Giant: 8 points
Strong mob: 60 points
As a reward, the players of the winning team get Arena Coins which can be exchanged at an NPC for other items.

Star map (8 vs 8)

Moon map (16 vs 16, the screenshots are from this one)

Sun map (32 vs 32)

You can find more images on The-Pain.net blog, I made some for him :P


HOT NEWS: New SRO dungeon?

Today, kSRO got an update for the Battle Arena Event and some bug fixes.
But Joymax also added new lines of text that could be a hint for a new dungeon!!
/ / God's heritage UI
1 UIIT_STT_GOD_TOGUI togwimaeul
1 UIIT_STT_GOD_FLAME Flame Mountain

God's heritage is the title of the new update.
Togwimaeul is something I don't know, but Flame Mountain is the upcoming area south of Hotan!
1 UIIT_MSG_GOD_GATE_MOVE to move into the world of the unknown.
Okay, from this we know there will be a "world of the unknown" and a gate with that you can go there.

1 UIIT_STT_PARTY_SUMMON_CONFIRM_BOX [% s] you a invitation to the world of the unknown. Join now to recall?
As it seems, other party members can be invited to the dungeon "world of unknown".

1 UIIT_MSG_ERR_MAGIC_HOLE_TOWN gate may be generated only in the village.
I'm not sure about what exactly this means, but there is a "Magic Hole Town".

1 UIIT_MSG_ERR_MAGIC_HOLE_LIMIT_DUNGEON today capable of generating in excess of the maximum number indeon, the gate can not be generated.
Better translation of this would be: The number of users to enter the dungeon is at maximum, so you can not use the teleport gate.

So, from some lines we already know that Joymax seems to plan something big...

Battle Arena - groups you can fight in

There are 4 modes in the upcoming Battle Arena.

Random battle
At this arena, you can participate as an individual. Once the match begins, foes and allies are established at random.

Party battle
At this arena, one team will fight another. Only party leaders can register to enter. Once the party leader registers, all party members are registered to enter.

Guild battle

At this arena, one guild will fight another. You can select up to 16 guild members who will participate. Only guild masters can register to enter. You can select the best guild members and prove to the world that you are the best guild.

Job battle
At this arena, Merchants and Hunters Guilds will fight against the Thieves Guild. If you have bones to pick with your enemy Guild, put on your profession outfit and step up to the challenge.

In these groups, you can fight in 6 Arenas (Star, Moon, Sun, Joobird, Dragon, Bongbird).

Joymax planning to sell Skill Points? [Update]

I received a lot of questions concerning the new item that gives SP.
Some people asked for a proof where to find the text in the current iSRO files. You can read the description in lines 7950 and 7955 of the current textdataname.txt file:

사용 시 랜덤한 양의 스킬 포인트가 증가합니다.

Some also said they think it would be the Stat Point re-use item. This is wrong, the Stat Point recall item has the following description:
1 SN_ITEM_MALL_STATS_POINT_RECALL_TT_DESC 현재 까지 획득한 스탯 포인트를 모두 회수 합니다.
Rough translation: "The current of acquired stat points recall all."
It's not sure if one of the items will really be sold in SRO, but it could be.

Joymax planning to sell Skill Points?

I just updated my iSRO to the current version and looked into the PK2 files. There I found a new item added:
Item name: Skillpoint Scroll
Item type: Item Mall item
Description: Using a random amount of skill points to increase. (translated from korean)
Joymax seems to plan selling random amounts of SP for silk... an other way to make lots of money.

kSRO new maximum gold amounts

Here is an overview:


Black Rogue (THSRO) - InGame Footage

Hi again, how long I don't post anything here =3
This is my round of pics from THSRO Black Rogue, but before show them I want to talk about this version of Silkroad.
There are some different and interesting things respect the other versions, the first is the login screen, when you open the client, the old login screen appears, and damn, it's so beautiful (old times...). The character creation and selection screen are too the old ones (the creation ones includes europeans, but them are disabled). About Europe, in the map you can see European zones and even Roc Mountain, but you can't teleport there nor create an european char yet (as you will see on the pics).
Extra info:
  • Cap 80
  • Skills until lv 80 (obviously)
  • Item Mall disabled (I was like WTF?, the Item Mall button doesn't works? XD)
  • Autopot (free)
  • New options on the in-game client (show your HP over your name, HP and MP sound warning, etc)
  • Academy system
  • Rates x1 (like another official server)
  • There are not any Fortress
Well, and the last thing for say, the server is REALLY LAGGY!, and I'm not kidding, if you are not from Thailand don't play there, if you are in a city you need 1 min or more for walk to another point, if you are alone there is much less lag, but if arround you there are more than 5 mobs... LAG!
Now... enjoy the pics =3

That's all, oh and this is the capacity of both servers:


Thailand SRO Closed Beta started!

The servers are online now. Unfortunally, updating takes very long for me, so I will post more about ThSRO later :P


Thai SRO Beta servers open tomorrow.

This is just a small notice: The Black Rogue servers will be opened tomorrow at 12PM Thailand time.
