Battle bosses one-on-one in Ein Lacher, take part in a new Royal Army Raid with numerous improvements and battle your fellow mercenaries in the improved Siege PvP Match. Vindictus' latest update has arrived with plenty of toys and fun things to do for everyone, check out all of the details below!

Take the Ein Lacher Challenge
Ein Lacher is a new way to test your mastery of Vindictus. You'll have no party to carry you, no teammates to distract the enemy boss and no lesser foes to work your way through. Just you and one of the bosses of Vindictus, battling it out.

Each day, you'll have a choice of 10 Ein Lacher battles to complete, selectable from the Exploration Departure map. You have to go it alone, but you'll have a few advantages of your own. You'll be sent right to the boss, with no other foes standing in your way. If you do fall in combat, you can revive yourself for free and continue the fight.

You'll even get EXP, AP and Gold upon defeating your foe, albeit with an increasing penalty to your EXP, AP and Gold rewards after the 4th free revive. Evil Cores will also drop, however limited to the number of Evil Cores per day you can normally claim from those foes.

Defeating bosses in Ein Lacher will also reward you with up to 20 Honor Medals per day that can be exchanged for Emblems, AP and EXP potions and Seals of Bravery from the Royal Army Recruit in town, based on how commanding a performance you gave:
  • Bronze Medal: Defeat the boss while falling 3 times or less and earn an Honor Medal
  • Silver Medal: Defeat the boss without being incapacitated to earn two Honor Medals
  • Gold Medal: Defeat the boss without ever taking damage for three Honor Medals!
  • Each Medal is only awarded once for each challenge
There's even a special set of titles you can claim to show absolute proof of your abilities, for clearing the Ein Lacher battles with Bronze, Silver or Gold medals. Just don't expect these awards to come easy: The bosses of Vindictus are in no mood for games.

Improved Royal Army Raids
Group based battles aren't being left out, though. We've gone back to the Royal Army Raids and given them a series of enhancements to make them more engaging, better balanced and ultimately more fun. Two improvements are the most obvious: First, you will now be able to see the health bar for all bosses in Royal Army Raids. Second, all lower-level raid members will no longer be a handicap. All characters below level 90 will have their Health, Attack and Defense boosted to give them a fighting chance.

We've also added new rewards for completing the Royal Army Raids. Defeating the boss will reward you with one of three different Mysterious Glass Bottles. These bottles contain powerful rewards: 50 AP and a Seal of Bravery, top-tier crafting materials or even an orange-quality Weapon Essence that can be used to craft the most powerful weapons available!

Those aren't the only changes, however. In order to make it easier to find a party, only one Royal Army Raid will be available, changing each day. These raids will also start with a minimum of 10 players, at least four of whom are level 90, and up to 16 characters can take part. You also will no longer be able to use Ultimate attacks in Royal Army Raids. Oh, and there's one other little change...

The Peerless One is back for the Royal Army Raids! The Serpent King Lakoria has a powerful array of poisonous attacks, and a massive appetite. Whether swallowed whole, flung into the air to come crashing down or infected by a lethal toxin, you'll need your wits about you to stand a chance against this most massive of monsters.

Improved Siege Rewards
We've also boosted the rewards for each PvP Siege Match! With this update, everyone on the winning team will receive 12 Seals of Triumph, a 200 AP Capsule and 30,000 Gold each, while the losing team will earn 8 Seals of Triumph, a 100 AP Capsule and 20,000 Gold each.

In order to make Siege Matches more of an event, we've restricted their availability. As such, Siege matches will only occur every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday between 3:00 AM and 10:00 PM PDT (6:00 AM - 1:00 AM EDT, 8:00 PM - 3:00 PM AEST). The UI will let you know when a new match is available, so be ready to storm the castle!

Screenshot Mode

We've also added a special Screenshot mode to help you get images of your characters in the best light possible. You now have access to three independent cameras that can be positioned to follow your character around at a variety of angles and distances. While Screenshot Mode is active, every time you take a screenshot, an image will be taken from both your main camera angle and any active Screenshot Cameras.

Adjust a Screenshot Camera with the mouse: Left-Click to rotate the camera, Right-Click to strafe around with the camera and hold the Scroll Wheel to zoom in and out. These cameras will move and turn with your character, so get some great camera angles and show off your skills in style!

Mad Psycho and Manic Jester Sets

This month's update brings two new sets, the return of a classic Limited set, an array of hair, inner armor and tattoos, the triumphant return of the Premium Weapon Fusion Rune and more!

Check out the full details in the Mad Psycho and Manic Jester Sets post.

Exquisite Chest Events

It's been a year since our last Treasure Chest event, and even longer since the Fruit Fight event has been around. We're bringing both back around this month to give you a wealth of rewards no matter what you want to play. We're also easing you into the new normal for Royal Army Raids by giving you three Royal Army Raids each day for the next two weeks.

Check out the full details in the Exquisite Chest Events post.

The young princess has been trained to use the full length of the blade with each swing, using her momentum to plow through her foes. But don't think all she can do is hack and slash her way to victory; Delia has a wealth of special moves and powerful combos to leave her enemies in pieces.

Combos and Standard Attacks

Vindictus' classic Combo style forms the backbone to Delia's offense, using a series of Normal strikes and Smash attacks to devastate her foes.

More info here:

Special Attacks

After building up SP by bisecting a few Fomors, Delia can unleash powerful attacks bound to the quick slots or through the SP Skill button. Each ability has its own use, and taking advantage of every one will be a key towards victory.

Trained by the finest in the world. Enchanted by the chaos of the battlefield. Captivated by the deaths of her foes. When the stars align on Thursday, July 14th, nobility's finest daughter will finally arrive to the world of Vindictus. Get a sneak preview of her abilities below and claim your Delia Coronation Pack today!

Meet Delia, Nobility's Finest
Delia wields a two-handed Bastard Sword, a heavy blade whose size is only exceeded by Hurk's massive Greatswords. The young princess has been trained to use the full length of the blade with each swing, using her momentum to plow through her foes.

Vindictus' classic Combo style forms the backbone to Delia's offense. She uses Normal attacks to disrupt her foes, using the long blade to cleave through the enemy horde, and then transitions into a Smash attack to send them flying with a massive blow. Her Rising and Falling Comet Smashes form the pinnacle of her style. After three Normal attacks and a Smash, Delia can either immediately carve an arc before her with the Rising Comet Smash, or wait for a moment, get in position and bring her massive sword down with the powerful Falling Comet.

Delia is not without some special attacks, however. After building up SP by bisecting a few Fomors, Delia can unleash powerful attacks, including Ion Thrust's quick thrust forward, rushing forward and driving her sword through the fools before her, or Full Moon, where Delia dances through her foes, the Bastard Sword carving open her path before finishing with one massive swing.

Delia's most unique ability is Zenith. Summoning the vast power granted to her, she can explode with power to boost her strength to its limit. As Delia becomes a true juggernaut of power, each swing will hit harder, her skin will become as hard as diamond and her sword will move faster than ever before! The only downside is that the spell has a habit of sundering her own armor, leaving her weakened once the spell fades.

New Outfits

Delia brings new outfits to Vindictus as well, with two gorgeous ensembles linked to the stars themselves. Karok's even gotten into the act with his own unique addition to the shop. With new packages, new hairstyles and inner armors and a special leveling package for nobility's finest daughter herself, there's going to be something for everyone!

Delia Attendance Event
When Delia arrives, we'll be launching a new Attendance Event, challenging you to log in as many days as possible to get the best rewards possible, including Lubber's Sketchy Enhancement Coupons, Permanent Storage Chest Expansions, 2000 AP Capsules, Exquisite Enchant Runes and more!

Delia Registration Event
Remember to sign up for your Coronation Pack with the Delia Registration Event! This free package contains everything you need to get Delia on her feet as fast as possible, including four pieces of jewelry granting a total of +700 ATT, +800 DEF, +3 Balance and +10 Luck, as well as a free Storage Chest Expansion Ticket and a special Tiara to let Delia start her campaign in style.

Sign up for your very own and come back on July 14th to claim it and see the star-crossed Princess for yourself!

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.

Additional Changes
Bug Fixes:
  • Fixed issue with the Soap buff indicator not appearing over Hot Springs
  • Fixed issue where players were unable to use NX Credit to purchase character slots
  • Fixed an issue where players were unable to replace components in S3 equipment and weapons if the item was crafted by a player whose name begins with a double digit number
Known Issues:
  • Enchant scrolls in the Event Exchange Shop preview as tradeable when moused-over

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.
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.

Spring Has Arrived

Cherries are blossoming throughout the towns of Vindictus, and the vibrant pink cherry blossoms are fluttering down on everyone! Enjoy the scenery as a reminder that the coldest months are finally behind us.

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

Community Announcements - NXA-Orellien
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. In celebration of our 5th anniversary, we've got 5 special events to mark the occasion.

Containing an exclusive title, a powerful, limited time weapon and more, you'll have to login during our 5th Anniversary to get the full contents.

5th Anniversary Monster Bingo

But maybe you wanted one of the Crimson Commander Packages without having to drop some NX on it? Well you've got a chance for it now. From Monday, October 26th through Sunday, November 15th, Monster Bingo is back, and the grand prize is a free Crimson Commander Package! There's plenty of other rewards too, including Fox Ears, a free AP Box and more!

During the event, specific monsters throughout Vindictus will drop Bingo numbers, a different number each day and two numbers on Saturday and Sunday. As you collect more and more of the numbers, more prizes will unlock, and as you claim the rows you'll inch your way up to the Crimson Commander Package and your chance at the Kaeghan or Iset sets!

Once you have a Bingo, you'll be able to claim your rewards by clicking on the "Get Reward" button, but be careful: Doing so will also reset the board, destroying all of your collected numbers, so only claim them once you're happy with the rewards you've unlocked.
