Demon Lord Enters the Battlefield
New Content Patch Implements Runes of Magic's Uber Villain as the Ultimate Boss Opponent
BERLIN and SAN FRANCISCO - January 21, 2010 - Since the beginning of Runes of Magic 'Chapter I - Rise of the Demon Lord', the dark presence of the Demon Lord has hung like a shadow over Taborea. With the next content update, the terror now takes form. The new raid instance 'Demon Stronghold' enables players to battle the Demon Lord Sirloth.
The raid dungeon is available for groups of twelve high level players, and is located in the Naga Acropolis. The path to the Demon Lord leads through dungeons, cells and torture chambers. The first boss opponent is the giant Naoth in the Chamber of Punishment. Only those who can skilfully wield their powers of runecraft will be able to overcome him and penetrate deeper into the stronghold. The way to the throne room leads players past three additional bosses and loyal servants of the demonic ruler, as well as past the birthplaces of new henchmen.
In the final battle with the Demon Lord, players will have to throw all of their abilities into the mix in order to be victorious against the winged demon. Groups have to survive four phases of battle, overcome sworn helpers of the evil lord and fend off flying swords. Only then will the arch villain of the first two chapters of Runes of Magic be vanquished. As a reward, players will be able to carry off the original weapons of the mighty Demon Lord.
The gates of the 'Demon Stronghold' will open with the next content update. More information is available on the official website of the online role-playing game at: http://www.runesofmagic.com
