In October of 2010, Vindictus was released, setting off a seven year journey filled with new characters, new threats and new outfits, complete with ever-shortening skirts. On September 27th, our next update arrives with a new special battle, new features and a series of special events and sales to celebrate Vindictus' 7th anniversary!

New Special Battle: Desert Contract

We'll have a new Special Battle for you this month, as Commander Ikrium and Raiding Party Captain Larken join forces to tear the heroes of Vindictus apart!

Battle against the duo as they use their powerful array of ranged and melee attacks to keep their foes off-balance. Strike them down and claim your rewards, including Abomination's Essence, Eochaid's Essence, Dullahan's Essence and more! You can complete this special dungeon once per day until our next update.

Goddess' Guidance

Season 3 is filled with cunning foes, powerful monsters, lethal challenges for all who step towards Ben Chenner. In order to help mercenaries get a handle on the challenges in Season 3's raid battles, the Desert Contract update will come with a special Buff called Goddess' Guidance. This buff will grant large boosts to ATT, M.ATT, DEF and Additional Damage, but only for the first time they complete each Raid battle's story mission, plus the first 10 completions of the repeatable raid battles.

7th Anniversary is Almost Here

October marks 7 years of Vindictus, featuring countless monsters slain, weapons crafted, missions completed and breastplates torn to shreds. We're not ones to let our anniversaries go without comment, and we'll be hitting hard with new sales and events for the month!

We have multiple new packages coming for you, with cosmetic updates, dyes, runes, Limited outfits, something for everyone... including a special coupon that you can exchange for some special items, including Fallen Angel Wings!

Sales aren't the only thing that will be coming, however. We'll have giveaways, a powerful artifact you can enhance you can enhance as the month of October rolls around, and even a special Ultimate Objective Event to celebrate 7 years of Vindictus, as the Desert Contract update hits on Wednesday, September 27th!

    Well, this might mess things up for one of the events I'm hosting for the Halloween Party on 10/21/2017 (I have to mention it since it's a player-hosted event in October, and considering this update is for October, it makes sense to put a reminder here), but I don't think this will have too much of an impact since the buff is for newcomers to these raids. It should be fine. :)

    SEPHIROTH HYPE! :D But where are the other wings though? You know, these wings that were released in Japan? Could that be for later perhaps? :)

    Hyped :D , but got some questions :

    Is this a typo and meant as "You can complete this special dungeon one extra time per day ..."? Or is this dungeon going to dissapear after the next update?

    Also technically this is the 6th anniversary for EU, will we be bumped by 1 year from now on or will there be small changes across the servers(like the emblem thingy being a 6)?

    p.s. also no polar bear x77 times pls :#

    Currently special dungeons rotate weekly, so only one of the current special dungeons is available. I guess this means that Desert Contract will be available regardless of the current rotation.

    It doesn't seem like an update worth for an anniversary... If you want to celebrate the anniversary properly, release Miri or the flying Lynn.

    What made you expect Miri release so soon?
    Usually, big releases like that have a 6month delay until they reach NA/EU, so you will have to wait a little longer.

    So does anyone have any idea what exactly will be coming in terms of new cosmetic items or outfits?

    Basically what everyone is waiting to find out. Not sure why nexon doesn't post patch notes until the very last second, pretty annoying to have to wait until the actual patch date to know what exactly is coming.

    I'm sorry, but you have no concept of how businesses are run, and you'd be bankrupt very soon if you were in charge. Your idea sounds good on paper, but it is terrible business-wise. Companies need to stretch their content and events across the year to keep a constant flow to their customers. Why lump all that content into an anniversary event, especially during the month of halloween events - the company would lose all its content ammo in one month. Also, a lot of young people are very busy with their fall semester in school - the best time to release Miri or Lynn 2nd weapon would be at a time when people are off school (like December break) and when they are inclined to spend more $$$ (christmas money), which is exactly when we're going to be getting it.

    You could have got your point across without insulting him. I don't understand why people feel the need to do that in these forums, it is completely unnecessary.

    #another pay to win =( bad surprise for anniversary 100k NX for the wings no well, I think it would be for 7 long years of playing to get all the players, or with objective events, limit this to players who only spend amounts of money orbitals speaks of bad decisions of events more if it is for anniversary, good luck in this event, i think in the future the team can create more events for gifts for all players*. to reward for continuing to play for more time more in the current situation of the game , we need good updates & events . :'( <3

    that anniversary event is kinda a let down how you give us the chance to have an item to plus to 17 and take it away later on thats injustice im good i'll come back when miri is here, with all that hard work it may offer should have let us keep especially those whos been playing this game since it was a alpha
