The main feature of the expansion is a new playable
race called the Kamael, one-winged soldiers who control
a form of dark magic and are presented in different
class paths based on gender, with both male and female
characters possessing distinct combat abilities. The
ultimate goal of the Kamael warriors, born on the Isle
of Souls, is to earn a second wing and reach the powerful
final enhanced form.

available for purchase.
Newer players will enjoy new items and

more accessible without diluting the challenge for which
the game is well known.

dungeons provide players a place where they can hunt
by themselves, untouched by players or creatures. There
are two different kinds of Instanced Dungeons: one that
requires a quest to enter, and the other that requires
the acquisition of a castle or fortress to enter. Also,
when players tackle particularly challenging adventures
or overcome monstrous bosses, they can capture the moment
on video with the game’s newly revamped record
and replay system that allows players full control of
their footage playback when they view their captured
