The Requiem update for Rusty Hearts has deployed, giving players of this popular hack-and-slash MMO new content including a new playable character.
The new character is Roselle Vergerius (pictured) is a purchasable player character who, like most females in this game, is scantily clad and wielding an overlarge sword. She’s based on Frantz and is basically a female version of him. She costs 2500z.
Four new story dungeons have also been added:
Several new, small training dungeons have been added as have new weapons, including sets like Bone Weapons for use in the new Forgotten City training area.
A new raid dungeon called The Altar has also been added. The Altar of Margoras is a dark energy pool created by the Gatekeeper of Chaos and Destruction. Enemies basically mass up on you randomly brought in from other dungeons. The idea is to last as long as possible to gain more with each defeated wave. Nothing new here, but it isn’t the same every time at least since each wave is random.
Many players had problems with this update, but Perfect World seems to have resolved most of them if the forums are any indication.
Most people consider Rusty Hearts to be the best Perfect World has to offer right now. It’s an imminently free game with the purchase-ables (outside of player characters) being generally low-cost and not all that effective over in-game items that can be won or bought with gold.
So if you’re looking for a less RPG-ish hack and slasher, this is probably your best free to play choice. Fair warning, it is in the generalized Manga genre, so if you’re not into that, Perfect World as a whole is probably not going to be your thing.
