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. Our latest 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 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 comes with a special Buff called Goddess' Guidance. This buff grants 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.

Seal of Bravery Shop Update
