The war against the Fomors has shifted to the offensive. As the Royal Army leads the charge against the Fomor horde and pushes into territory long lost to humanity, the path ahead grows darker, more bizarre, more... wrong. The next chapter in the story of Vindictus has arrived with the Lochlann: Plains of Corruption update!

Welcome to Lochlann...


Long ago, Lochlann was a thriving town, filled with humans on an expansive plain. Then the Fomors came, driving the humans out of their homes. But now, ever since the Fomors took claim over Lochlann, something else has taken hold, corrupting the very earth and spawning creatures not meant for this world.



While some have their own theories about the corruption that has taken hold on the Lochlann Plains, the truth may only be found with hard work, an open mind... and a lot of luck. Those who have completed the story through Lugh Lamhfada should report to Marrec in Colhen to restart the story!

New Raid: Infected Eochaid


Deep below the plains of Lochlann lies a monstrous beast, Eochaid. Over a dozen meters tall, it was a fearsome opponent long before the seeping corruption that has befallen Lochlann entered his nest... but now it has been transformed into something else entirely.



Face off against the Infected Eochaid in Vindictus' newest Raid Battle. The powerful strikes from this beast would be enough to fell even the strongest warrior, but the corruption has infused it with terrible new power. With this newfound power, it moves effortlessly obliterating foes with powerful magic and summoning minions to spread the corruption further. Only a coordinated team of mercenaries can hope to evade his strikes and disable his powers long enough to slip in a finishing blow.



Those that manage to slay the beast may claim Eochaid's Essence, a rare and mysterious substance connected to the corruption itself. Brynn in Colhen remains his inventive self, however, and will be able to transform this essence into one of two new powerful earrings, Innocent Cry and Innocent Tear.

Enchant Scrolls in the Marketplace
With the Lochlann: Plains of Corruption update, we've lifted the restriction on selling non-Permanent Enchant Scrolls on the Marketplace! Instead of throwing a rare but unwanted scroll at the nearest vendor for a paltry sum, you're now able to list them on the Marketplace and find the scroll a good home. The scrolls will still expire once purchased, so make sure you use it promptly!

Urban Punk and Angel Sets


The Plains of Corruption have brought in a wealth of new items. With two new outfits in a modern style, a new type of Enhancement Stone to boost your odds, a pair of high-value packages and more, there's plenty to enjoy with the outfits below!

See all the new items in the Urban Punk and Angel Sets post.

Returning Warrior Events


As you venture out into Lochlann's corrupted fields and beyond, you're going to need all the backup you can find. An experienced warrior at your side, a powerful spell enchanting your blade and... the finest earrings glinting in the starlight. Three events arrive for the month of June, here to help you grow stronger as the story of Lochlann unfolds.

Find out more at the Returning Warrior Events post.

With the continued story, a new battle area ascending to the peak of Ben Chenner and a new Raid, Chapter 1 of Season 3 ends with a bang as Lugh Lamhfada takes the field.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2560CjzEQJM
Season 3 - Episode 4
The fighting over Ben Chenner continues. Soldiers continue their way up the mountain, escorting mages, scholars and priests, but even as fewer come back down, no casualties are ever reported... and the Royal Army is only spurred on by their 'flawless victories'. This bizarre curse must be stopped before there are no soldiers left to fight. The search for a solution leads only further up the mountain of Ben Chenner... but the fighting only grows as you get closer to the peak.



New Raid: Lugh Lamhfada
Lost to history and wielding the mythical sword Fragarach, Lugh Lamhfada seeks retribution against those who have forgotten his glory and disregarded his honor. Will you have the courage to face the lost hero and at long last put his spirit to rest?



Lugh Lamhfada is a powerful warrior, but he's no master swordsman. Between his own magic and the unfathomable power of Fragarach, he has no need for finesse in his attacks. He instead uses quick bursts of teleportation to surprise his opponents with overpowering blows. Lugh can also pin a foe to the ground, making them vulnerable to his attacks if not defended in time.



Fragarach isn't Lugh Lamhfada's only weapon, however. Periodically during the fight, Lugh will rise into the air and bombard the area with Tathlums, mystical orbs that will explode violently... but they can also be collected to negate their explosion and give you a much needed edge against the ancient warrior.



Those that manage to overcome Lugh Lamhfada's teleporting attacks and collection of magical attacks will find components and the recipes for a new set of items. This Cloth armor set is crafted through the Composite system, but the Lugh Lamhfada keystone items can only be found by defeating the ancient warrior himself or through the new Lugh Lamhfada Battle Box.



St. Patrick's Day Outfits and More


St. Patrick's Day is only a week away, and the St. Patrick's outfit is back for the occasion! This bright green suit for both the ladies and the gents is the perfect way to show your Irish pride! They arrive with the new Lugh Lamhfada Battle Box coming with a special bonus and also includes a bright green hair color available for all hair styles, a new Inner Armor and more!

Find out more in the St. Patrick's Day Outfits post.

Easter Egg Events


Easter's coming soon, and Ernmass in Colhen is looking for some help to get the yearly celebration off the ground. In addition to claiming Easter Eggs for the Fluffy Halo item, there's a pair of events giving you more departures to take down Lugh Lamhfada and gain a special reward for showing your mastery over him.

Find out more in the Easter Egg Events post.

In 2015, Lann, Fiona and Evie all experienced a rebirth in power that bestowed upon them new attacks, new abilities, and more powerful techniques making them equals among their counterparts. With the first update of 2016, another warrior has emerged from his training, ready to bring about another round of mayhem in Vindictus as the Karok Unleashed update has arrived!

Karok Unleashed


There's a lot to go into, as nearly every skill Karok has is getting a polish. Even Karok's body is not immune to the changes, as two new sliders have been added to the character customization menu: Head and Proportion.

Head does exactly what it sounds like, increasing or decreasing the size of Karok's skull to better fit with the variety of body sizes. Proportion, on the other hand, controls how Karok's muscles fit on his massive frame, the traditional heavy bulk, or taller with a more lean feel. These sliders can be selected when creating a new Karok or modified with an Appearance Alteration Coupon.

But don't let his looks be all that defines him, there's plenty of new abilities and changes that Karok can make use of with any weapon!

The Phantom Mage has arrived! Vindictus' first new mercenary to arrive since Arisha came a year ago, Sylas is a spell-slinging skirmisher with a powerful dagger and enough tricks to keep him one step ahead of his foes. Take a look at Sylas and his arsenal of spells and attacks below!

Primary Weapon: The Phantom Dagger


Sylas tears apart his foes with the aid of a new type of weapon, the Phantom Dagger. No mere close-quarters knife, Sylas has enchanted the blade with powerful magic that can sling the blade wherever he wishes. Each of his Normal Attacks sends the blade out to slice nearby foes, returning to Sylas's hand in time for the next strike. The quick strikes and long range lets Sylas dart in and out of the melee, building up his Combos and escaping before the hammer can fall.

Combos and Phantom Shards


Sylas's Combo attacks function much the same as many other mercenaries, using a combination of Normal Attacks to lead into Smash Attacks to trigger powerful strikes, including a heavy uppercut to send weaker foes flying and a spectral disc carving through all enemies in its path.

Sylas's Combos also come with a special bonus. Each Normal Attack from Sylas will create a Phantom Shard, orbiting the mage as he fights. When Sylas makes a Smash Attack, each of these Shards will fly at his enemy, dealing extra damage on top of the Smash Attack's violent impact. These shards serve a second purpose as well: If some foe does manage to land a blow, the Shards will be expended, absorbing a portion of the damage to keep the mystical skirmisher on his feet.

Full Ability List
In addition to the normal list of Masteries and Training common to all Mercenaries, Sylas can train in a variety of Active, Passive and Combo skills to help him take apart the Fomors wherever they lie. You can find his full list of abilities in the Sylas Update post on the official Vindictus Web Site!

Additional Character Slots
We understand that many of our players have several characters already, and thus might not have room for Sylas. Well, no need to shell out for a Premium Character Slot or agonize over what character to delete: With the Sylas Update, all accounts have an extra Character Slot to use, giving you a total of 6 free character slots!

We've also expanded the number of character slots per account as well. You can purchase up to 14 Premium Character Slots, providing up to 100% bonus Battle EXP, a total of 20 characters possible per account.

Phantom Mage Sales


The Phantom Mage is here, and we've got a quartet of packages perfect for new characters starting their tour against the Fomors! This includes the Beauty Package to customize your characters just right, the Boost Package to get Sylas loaded up for bear, the Winged Heart Sets giving Sylas his set of Level 60 gear that's usable at Level 1... and the Sylas One-Shot Package with nearly all of the above and more.

Check out the Phantom Mage Sales post for more details!

Vindict-Mas Events


Welcome to Vindict-Mas! While Sylas is the headliner for the update this December, we haven't forgotten about the holiday season, and we've got a few special events to mark the occasion! Sylas has a pair of events himself for those that want to race up the ranks and more!

Check out the Vindict-Mas Events post for more details!

Other Changes
  • Fixed a PvP exploit where players were able to enter matches and remain in an invulnerable state
  • Corrected a typo for one of Brynn's dialogue for quest Two Parts
  • Fixed a text issue for the Enthusiastic Enchant Scroll
  • Fixed an issue where the Guild Storage buttons appear corrupted
  • Fixed an issue where the 5th Anniversary Emblem was no longer appearing
Known Issues
  • Sylas can only purchase the Short Layered Hair once, any subsequent attempts causing an error when attempting to do so. This will be addressed in an upcoming patch

5 years ago, we here at Nexon America brought Vindictus, a rather different look at the world of Mabinogi, to the shores of the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia and New Zealand. Over those five years, countless Fomors have been slain, new and varied mercenaries have joined the field, epic raid bosses, several stories tall, have come around to be utterly demolished, and only Fergus knows how many pieces of armor have been sundered.

Season 3 has been on a roll since the appearance of Muir and the encounter with the Elves of Ben Chenner, and it's time for the next chapter to the story: The Name of Erinn. With this latest chapter comes a new Raid boss, new armor, new items, a renewal of things past and much more. Take a look at what's come in Season 3 - Chapter 3 and all the battles in store.

New Raid Boss: Lord Glas Ghaibhleann



Do you remember, deep below the ruins of Ainle, when a simple investigation unveiled an ancient, shackled monster? Tall as houses, four arms with two massive blades, magic and more? Glas Ghaibhleann was the name of the creature slain that day, but what once was has come again, and he is no longer weakened by eons of captivity.



Lord Glas Ghaibhleann stands in your way again, and the speed of his swords and his diving assaults will devastate any too slow to escape him. His magic is formidable as well, sending out bursts of energy to pummel those unable to get out of the way. But his new tricks are what you will truly need to watch for.



As you wear Lord Glas down, dark voids will appear around the room, pulling any warriors near it to the core... where a very grisly fate awaits. Gravity itself is under Lord Glas' command, as he will cast his Reverse Gravity spell to lift all of his foes into the air and slamming them back to the ground... unless you can find a safe place to stand.



Lord Glas Ghaibhleann can be fought through the "Temple of the Fallen Moon" raid battle, available to characters between 80 and 90. While you can face him alone if you really want, you'd be best suited to bring a full group of eight along with you, to make sure there's someone around to pick you up off the ground. And as with all Raids, you normally only get one shot at him per day, unless you're a VIP (2) or take him on in the next few weeks, thanks to the Lord Glas Ghaibhleann Raid Event.

New Gear: Terminus Sentinel Set



As with Regina and Braha, defeating Lord Glas will unlock the ability to craft a new Armor Set, the Terminus Sentinel Set. The Keystones for this Light Armor Set can be claimed after defeating Lord Glas, letting you construct this gorgeous leather coat over metal breastplate armor, a pinnacle of style and function.

New Enchant Drops for Light and Cloth Armor



The best gear needs some good Enchants to kick it up to the next level, and what would we be if we did not oblige? Four Rank 7 Enchant Scrolls, formerly only available during limited time events, can now be acquired by defeating Season 2 Raid Bosses! While these rare scrolls will give your armor a wealth of bonuses, they can only enchant Light or Cloth armor. Those enchanting their Cloth Armor will even get a bonus of ATT and M.ATT when doing so.

Armor Renewal



As we approach Vindictus' 5<sup>th</sup> anniversary, it's long since time to take a look back at the vast amounts of equipment warriors stumble across as they advance through the story. Most armor was separated by gender, excluding a few of our newer characters, or only for a specific characters as well.

No more. We've gone through just about every piece of armor and reduced the restrictions across the board. Just about anyone will be able to put on the armor they find and take it into battle, although Hurk and Karok's massive frame will still prevent some equipment from being used. Several hundred items have been adjusted, making it far easier for those still leveling up to remain well equipped for the battles to come.

Equipment Mastery Cost Reduced

With all the powerful gear requiring high ranks of skills, AP's never been so valuable. To make it easier for everyone to get their Equipment Mastery skills up, we've dramatically reduced the AP costs for Rank 9 through Rank 5 for all Weapon and Armor skills (Excluding Large Shield Mastery, Vella's Twin Sword Mastery and Focus Mastery).

Story Completion Bonus

Those of you still working on getting through the stories of Season 1 and 2 will find a new reason to get through that last mission. Completing a Chapter from Season 1 or Season 2 will reward you with a bonus AP Capsule to help you keep above the difficulty curve. This AP amount varies based on the Chapter completed, starting at 100 AP for Chapter 1, to 500 AP for most higher level chapters, and up to 1000 AP for completing the final chapter of a Season.

Tutorial Improvement



Have friends interested in Vindictus, or just want to try out a new character? We've improved the Tutorials in the first few missions of Vindictus, to help explain the use of certain items, what aspects of the UI do, introduce the basic combos for your current class and more.

Bloody Wedding Sales



Halloween is almost here, and this month's newest outfits are in the season and wouldn't be out of place in a horror film. There's also new Inner Armors, a new Hairstyle, a new Season 3 Battle Box and even a special new face paint, perfect for the occasion.

Check out all the details in the Bloody Wedding Sales post.

Night of the Damned Events



As the end of October arrives, Halloween approaches. We have a special event tailor-made for the spooky season, where terror and candy reign supreme, and a new event to help you take Lord Glas Ghaibhleann down over and over.

Check out the details in the Night of the Damned Events post.

The secret of Ben Chenner has been unveiled. The corrupted Elves still stand in your way, but if you're to learn more about what has sundered the memories of so many fallen heroes, there's only one place to go: Back to Ben Chenner. Chapter 2 of Season 3 has arrived with new items, new quests and a brand new Raid as you face down the massive creature, Braha. Both of him.

Chapter 2: A Mountain of Ash



The story of Season 3 continues on into Chapter 2, sending you back to Ben Chenner to find out more about the Corrupted Elves and the plague of lost memories. Have care as you enter deeper into the mountain-top forest, because the Corrupted Elves will fight for every scrap of ground, led by Akadus, a fallen hero with a pair of nasty, bayonetted hand-crossbows.



Characters that have completed Chapter 1 can start Chapter 2 with Brynn in Colhen. The Free Battle for the zone is also available, taking your party through the new areas in case you want to revisit the new fights, or want to pound on Akadus for some more loot.

New Raid: Braha



Chapter 2 will lead you to the newest Raid, Braha and Ancient Braha. While this massive bruiser is unable to climb out of his hole for the fight, you'll still have to contend with his massive reach as he swings, slams and grabs at any of those tiny creatures hitting him with their tiny weapons.



There are two Braha's that must be defeated, and you'll need to hit both of them to win. As you fight either one, you'll slowly become attuned to him in the form of a stacking buff. This will gradually reduce the damage that you deal to Braha, down to 50% at full power. But as the attuned Braha shrugs off your blows, the other Braha will find your attacks even more powerful, boosted up to +150% damage at its full effect. Of course, you'll have to find a way to get over to the other one...



Characters that manage to defeat Braha 10 times, each Braha counting as one, will earn the "Braha Exterminator" title, giving you +2 STR, +2 AGI, +3 INT and +2 WIL, as well as unlocking the most powerful part of Braha's rewards...

New Weapons and Armor



Players that defeat Braha have a chance to loot Braha's Essence, a Keystone item that can be taken to Dianann to be turned into new weapons and armor with a few Legendary Shards and a lot of gold. As with the Regina's Feather set before it, each individual component in the composite gear can be replaced, however Regina's Feather Keystones cannot replace a Braha's Essence Keystone, or vice versa.

Braha T-Shirt



With the release of Braha comes the final reward of the Season 3 Preparedness Package, the Braha T-Shirt! Players can redeem their "Season 3 Episode 2 Vouchers" in the Exchange Shop for this fashionable item, featuring the face of Braha on the front and the back. You have until November 16th to claim your shirt, so grab it while you can!

High Fashion Sales



There's more new outfits than just the Braha's Essence set. This month brings us a new pair of classy Outfitters, perfect for  a night on the town! We also have new Hairstyles and Inner Armors, an update to the Season 3 Battle Box and new item that will let you convert Healing Potions into AP!

Check out the High Fashion Sales post for more details.

Petals for the Lost Events



There is no more important time to honor the lost than now, when the very memory of the recently deceased has been sundered. But the heroes of Vindictus can do still their part to honor the fallen, and Ernmass needs your help on the anniversary of his wife's passing.

The secret of Ben Chenner has been unveiled. The corrupted Elves still stand in your way, but if you're to learn more about what has sundered the memories of so many fallen heroes, there's only one place to go: Back to Ben Chenner. Chapter 2 of Season 3 has arrived with new items, new quests and a brand new Raid as you face down the massive creature, Braha. Both of him.

Chapter 2: A Mountain of Ash

The story of Season 3 continues on into Chapter 2, sending you back to Ben Chenner to find out more about the Corrupted Elves and the plague of lost memories. Have care as you enter deeper into the mountain-top forest, because the Corrupted Elves will fight for every scrap of ground, led by Akadus, a fallen hero with a pair of nasty, bayonetted hand-crossbows.

New Raid: Braha

Chapter 2 will lead you to the newest Raid, Braha and Ancient Braha. While this massive bruiser is unable to climb out of his hole for the fight, you'll still have to contend with his massive reach as he swings, slams and grabs at any of those tiny creatures hitting him with their tiny weapons.

There are two Braha's that must be defeated, and you'll need to hit both of them to win. Characters that manage to defeat Braha 10 times, each Braha counting as one, will earn the "Braha Exterminator" title, giving you +2 STR, +2 AGI, +3 INT and +2 WIL, as well as unlocking the most powerful part of Braha's rewards...

New Weapons and Armor

Players that defeat Braha have a chance to loot Braha's Essence, a Keystone item that can be taken to Dianann to be turned into new weapons and armor with a few Legendary Shards and a lot of gold. As with the Regina's Feather set before it, each individual component in the composite gear can be replaced, however Regina's Feather Keystones cannot replace a Braha's Essence Keystone, or vice versa.

Braha T-Shirt

With the release of Braha comes the final reward of the Season 3 Preparedness Package, the Braha T-Shirt! Players can redeem their "Season 3 Episode 2 Vouchers" in the Exchange Shop for this fashionable item, featuring the face of Braha on the front and the back. You have until November 16th to claim your shirt, so grab it while you can!

High Fashion Sales
