HOODLUMS REVAMP

The Hoodlums are changing their hoods!

Their look and gameplay have been revamped due to the arrival of a new dedicated dungeon that you will find in each of the nations.

Now all 14 classes are represented amongst the Hoodlums but there will be only one "build" for each of them. Their spells have been revised accordingly and updated to match what is currently found in the game.

Finally, they have also been balanced for level 60 players, so you can find them in these areas of the world, in addition to their dungeon!

FOUR NEW DUNGEONS

For all the nations: The Zeppelantern Dungeon (Level 60)

Accessible from the last field of each nation, this dungeon will give you a combat challenge against the Hoodlums.

One special feature of the place: You will need to make a choice between the ten rooms to discover. So expect many different paths to take, and hidden achievements… And as some may say about the Hoodlums: They are fearless; they do not forgive nor let you forget them; so you better be prepared for them.

For Brakmar and Sufokia: The Molluskies Dungeon (Level 60)

Come visIt and meet the Kraloves and other Darth Mussels in their cave. They can be found in Gnashville in Brakmar and the Steamulating Shore in Sufokia!

They will undoubtedly welcome you with not so friendly blows coming from their tentacles while whispering to you their favorite tune: "On the abandoned Mussels, Kraloves and Crustaceannnns!”

You will also receive a Wisdom bonus for confronting them, just to give you another good reason to go count grains of sand next to them!

For Sufokia: The Sharks Dungeon (Level 55)

Hungry? The Shark Dungeon in Sufokia Cradle is just what you needed! If you get too close you might see some real Jaws…

Even though the equipment available there should easily convince you to have a look, note that killing Sharks takes its toll… Up to you to find out what exactly…
 

For Amakna: The Cracklers Dungeon (Level 55)

Maybe you know the saying "Hitting rock bottom"? A brief stay in the Crackler Dungeon in the Holey Forest of Amakna, will make you to fully understand the meaning of it.

It seems, indeed, that Cracklers have found a good way to pass time. Are you brave enough to face the Crackler Boss and all the stones he has left behind? Who knows, some say that if you rub yourself hard enough against him, it might cause some sparks!

MUSICAL EMOTES

With luck, you may get one of the 12 new musical emotes from creatures of your nation.

There will be 3 to obtain per nations, 12 different musical emotes in total.

Do you fancy being able to play Brakmar style bass guitar, Ocarina of Sufokia, the Horn of Bonta or even the Trumpet of Amakna? It will soon be possible with these emotes, that you will be able to build a real orchestra!
