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!

    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.

    Only update that matters to me is Miri, as she'll be the most affected by this update as she'll be the new character on the block.

    Everything else.....just have to wait and see. (Loving the QoL changes, but those enhance rates.....)

    No. That's a horrible idea. You should perform the proper ritual of quitting:

    1) Announce your leaving with a thread. This will serve as your resignation letter as a mercenary and a hero.

    2) Plan a give away to erase temptations of returning and to pass on your tools of legacy to the heroes who will continue on in your stead.

    3) Have an in-game celebration for your characters, your time spent in Vindictus, the people you've met along the way, and a closing chapter in your life.

    The patch notes seem really rushed.....they didn't even mention S1E1 reconstruction and visual changes nor did they mention optimizations.

    I cannot condone the straight idiocy of this illogic that you have.
    The fact that you have JamesGross giving you an insightful is more than enough as well.

    Junyoop had a number of characters set at endgame gear and he does not want this update.
    I have

    Arisha
    Lynn
    Hurk
    Delia
    Vella
    Kai
    Evie
    Lann

    All at endgame gear and many of them with +15 level 90 weapons and capped stats. I have over 18 bil gold sitting on my characters. I do not want this update.

    The only good thing about this update is that the moment the server is back up I will log in, blow up all of my weapons (including my +15s which had been stuck and I couldn't enhance them anymore) and then quit permanently instead of the back and forth that I'm doing with the game now. My last guild mate that stuck with me through the last 8 years has just permanently quit 2 months ago as well so this will be the end of it.

    If you haven't noticed this is exactly what our patch notes look like. I expect this to be a copy paste when the update does come. They always have ninja updates. Btw this is cool we get rise before any content this summer we've been looking foward to since Winter. *sarcasm*

    If people actually knows the MOST recent changes, then they'd panic. Not looking toward ultra-broken additional damage because this director is unable to do maths. Also calling something fake that Nexon NA just confirmed. (enhancement rates)

    Credibility DOL = 0.

    Also
    Lol the number of negativity never fails to humor me.

    Sorry for being in a forums, where people give their opinions.


    Anyway looking forward the update still, despite the garbage unnecessary damage changes and the pot animation removal. Rest is fine/ok.

    i'd take any change over this retarded enhancement change any day. I foresee some sort of enhancement rune for +13-+15 coming up while they will permanently sell +11 and +12 rune in depot for some retarded amount of NX.
