This summer brings for Vindictus' newest update, and no punches are being pulled with this one. Say hello to the Rise: Revolution update, a massive overhaul of Vindictus unlike anything that's been seen before.

Please note, the following changes may impact on existing characters:
  • Characters below Level 60 will not be able to enhance their gear, even with Enhancement Coupons. If you have an Enhancement Coupon with an expiration date on a low-level character, make sure to use it while you can.
  • Due to changes to the Marketplace system, all items listed on the Marketplace will be returned to your mailbox when the update arrives. However, listing fees will not be returned. Because of this, we highly recommend not listing high value items for long durations until after the update is released.

The sheer number of changes coming with the Rise: Revolution update is simply massive, with nearly every piece of Vindictus affected in one way or another. The following is a preview of many of the improvements to come, and we'll be giving you more details as the update approaches, so stay tuned!

    how. about. no. get the $*&# out of here with the enhancement changes. and NO to the +15 rune. some of us alread know what that update consists of and while the changes to early game are nice and needed going from %33 to 13%? for +15, as if that crap isn't such a pain in the butt in the first place. the seal bought rune is a bad/dumb idea as well :|

    It's about devCat, not all about Nexon NA =)) We are forced to get these changes. I thought.

    Only...there are a LOT of punches being pulled by that list because there's so little detail on each of those. Even KR is still busy figuring out every little change.

    Lol the number of negativity never fails to humor me.

    I think only people who aren't ready because they do not have enough Money or gold to advance. Yet they are the same people who sit there and complain about things are getting boring, there's no updates, there's no changes.

    Just run with it, updating is happening whether you like it or not. A simple "Uninstall" would suffice, and save yourself further embarrassment.

    This Enhancement stuff is really garbage, I hate it. Also, where are the class patch notes?

    Just skip the add damage revamp, and the +20s. Leave the S1 and S2 raids alone. Then we all might have liked the new content. As it stands we are going to have 4 raids to run. With the only reason to run them being seal farming...

    Side note, what is Vindictus going to do to try to get new folks into the game? Since you didn't have to revamp the early levels to keep all the folks who are already lv 90? -> Honestly I would just have liked more content. But all I have seen of this revamp = less content for me + impossible goals to obtain.

    Oh and BTW:

    Is a complete lie. You no longer can enhance after you boom the first time. That means odds of a +15 have dramatically reduced.

    And obviously no mention of the odds of a +20 (what 1% from +19->+20...)

    What's so bad about being screwed endlessly by terrible rng and paywalls, guys?

    Nope, I wanna host more 8-pp raid, and I want them to uncap the normal battle to host up to 8 players instead of 4 for more fun. But they nerfed it all.
    4 pp hosting isn't enough for my team.

    For KR yes it's a thing. We didn't have it until around maybe a few days later. They've been ironing out the update with constant emergency maintenance's. No idea if NA will adopt the 5 runs a day for S1 and 2

    Can the old S2 nerfed raids still drop scrolls? I guess that would be their reason to do something like this.
