Silkroad Alternative Soundtrack

Joymax did alternative versions of the Silkroad Soundtrack but they never were available in-game. Most are almost the same as the normal ones, but with some changes at the begin or the end, others are totally different. Here are the alternative versions, totally official-made!

So which ones do you prefer? The actual ones or the alternative versions? Also which is your favourite ones? Tell us on comments!



Hidden NPC's in Alexandria

Testing the bug that was posted some days ago on this blog, I've found some NPC's underwater.

Hidden because they are almost naked? hehe


Confirmed: Legend 6 soon in iSRO!

The newsletter says everything ^_^

I guess the update comes at december 21 together with the new avatar dress.


How does Forgotten World work?

Forgotten World soon in iSRO? / New Job system

In today's iSRO update you can see that Joymax translated a lot of Forgotten World texts to English.
Legacy of God - Togui Village
A world filled with evil magic and wicked energy
Legacy of God - Flame Mountain
A world in which intense flame puts out hellish heat
Legacy of God - Shipwreck
An abysmal world filled with various monsters and ghost pirates

Crystallization of a Togui's tears. The ominous redness reminds one of blood, and yet, it has the kind of beauty that cannot be described with words. Historical records show how treasured it was in that that these red tears, which can only be created by Toguis, were offered to the Emperor as a gift after the generals eradicated the Toguis. Its beauty created much jealousy among gem cutters who then attempted to cut something that would come close to it. Yet, of all the red gems, there was none that could match up to the beauty of the red tears.
In Donhwang of China, a story is told of a young man who was killed by the townsfolk after becoming a Togui by eating strange ingredients in order to create a gem to give to his lover.

Bah, posting all the stories here would result in endless walls of text so I'll stop here. You can read them anyways when iSRO gets the update - which might be quite soon since they prepared the texts now :P

What information do we get about the new job system?

- It seems like you are able to get recipes to produce weapons, equipment and accessories with jobbing (Translated weapon description: Materials for production of assistive devices is the lowest level attacks. For Hunter.)
- You will need special stones to produce these equipments (Translated stone description: Is used to manufacture minor professional equipment)
- Runes that give you some STR/INT/HP/MP bonus can be gained. Not sure how...
- New job ranks will exist (at least for hunter and thief)
- 5 Job Skill Masteries will be added

Skill masteries: (crappy translation, i dont care :P)
Musical instruments

Flute and trumpet blowing skills are polished. To spread festive ring of traders playing the music, led by donkeys and horses, the cows were gathered.

Space utilization

Space more efficiently to develop their skills in writing. Mastering this technology for traders to use their writing pockets and backpack, he said.

Guards made

Transportation and manufacturing technology to protect the protectors are polished. Production of high-level guards to the destination of transportation will increase chance of surviving.

Masters of Transportation

Laden with a quick shift more to develop their skills. Improved technology, the more you can load at a time siteul can leave more profit.

Cattle mustering

Effectively to develop their skills in driving cattle. Faster means of transportation because driving to shorten trading hours trading activity over time can be effective.

Well, this looks very interesting. I hope the new system brings more fun in the game since job activities are very rare at the moment - in almost every version of the game.


iSRO - Silk Gift

On the last notice Joymax changed his Item Mall policy, in order to enable one of the functions that was available since almost the begin on kSRO. It's called "Silk Gift". By this method users will be able to send Silk Gifts to others players through the in-game Item Mall, spending their already existing normal Silk. The sent Silk can be used by the reciver as normal Silk for purcharse Items from the Item Mall.
The new feature will be implemented on the next server inspection (9 of November). If you want to purcharse Silk you will have to agree with the new Item Mall rules.
Check the iSRO homepage for the fully changes on the Agreement service.


Job quests (Hunter)

First of all, stop complaining on the comments with "show us something new!" and so, remember that we do this for free, lol

Wutever, here you are some translated new job quests. Remember that the quests can only be done by Hunters or Thieves.
As I said on the last notice on September, there are 2 kind of quests. Quests have the same structure, only change the level and the required item/amount.

Hunter quests:

Type A:

Mission: Collect 500 Gold Box
Reward: Items based on a Job Exp 11040 (10% extra bonus for the entire collection) in safe mode, only 50% paid (can't find a better translation for this, >_<) ◈ Type: Infinite repeatable quest
NPC: Trader Syabonneu (new special NPC)
Monster: Monsters from level 100 to 109
Professional level, the endless effort to raise is required. When you are ready to do etymology of 500 gold boxes. Gold box below the 100 level to 109 level can be obtained when it is hunting monsters. If a lack of time available, even if all the gold box, do not worry. 500 dogs found, uncle Zavulon need to collect as much as everyone would settle drill. ">But everything must come together to get more professional experience do not forget that.

(Monsters are NPC Thieves. You only get half of the reward if you kill the thieves during safe mode trade. NPC's should drop the Gold Boxes (for this quest))

Type B:

Mission: Delivery Speciality lv 110
Reward: Job Exp 1011151900 (with safe mode, only 50%)
Type: 1 Week Quest (this means 1 time per week)
NPC: Anya Traders (new special NPC)
Monster: None
Specialty referral came in ships. Anya traders in Constantinople, when delivered to the specialty that is. Specialties delivery quest quest to collect the goods trade than do jobs and notify you gave a lot of experience is a good idea.

(Basically you have to help a trader to deliver the quest item to another place for complete que quest).

Thief quests coming on the next days =3
