Football Frenzy + Dashing Mechanic

The Goal: Get your game on!

Run fast. Play hard. And SCORE! The 2022 Major League Soccer season starts this Saturday, and the Brasilian F√ļtbol season has already begun. This weekend, we're celebrating one of the most popular games across the world... FOOTBALL!* We've got some football fanatics on the team and we know many of you in our player community are also super-fans.¬†

Starting tonight, /join goal to defeat the goalie and collect all his color-customizable 0 AC football-themed drops, available for all players. 

  • Football Uniform armor
  • Football Stripes Uniform armor
  • Striped Goalie armor
  • Football Goalie armor
  • Goalie Gloves

Plus, the Sneevil Goalie also drops...

  • Four Football Maces (regular, Good, Evil, and Chaos-themed)
  • member-only Four Football Pets (regular, Good, Evil, and Chaos-themed)
  • member-only¬†Sneevil Goalie pet

Bonus Extras: /Football + /Chute maps

As an added fun extra release this week, we've taken several of our existing maps and minigames and given them "football" versions for you hardcore hooligans out there in Lore. /join football to run around the 50-player football-themed map

/join chute to try your luck at kicking a soccer ball 100 yards to unlock the "You /chute, you score" achievement. **

* Called "soccer" in America, because the US just does things differently sometimes.
** The Chute Game's soccer net is currently missing. O_O It will be added in ASAP.

Introducing the Stamina Bar + Dash Mechanic

Introducing... the SP bar! Since the PvP bug fixes update, the dash to target was removed for the sake of preventing movement desyncronization. After hearing player feedback to bring this back, we made it into a real in-game mechanic that won't cause movement desyncs!


We added a green bar under the mana bar called the SP (Stamina Points) bar. With a default keybind of SPACE (changeable in keybinds), you can dash to where you click. Be careful as dashing costs 100 SP. Treat the SP bar as a second mana bar. (/rest replenishes it faster!)

Before now, the game had it where if you double-clicked a target, you would go to that target with increased move speed. This mechanic lets you click on one spot with that same increased move speed. It can be used inside or outside PVP.

Redeem IoDA tokens to get even MORE bonuses

For each of the first six eligible IoDA tokens you receive , you'll get a FREE Bonus IoDA. The eligible tokens are the Ultimate, Epic, Platinum, Wicked  and Golden tokens.

Unlock the Obsidian Samurai Set

Available every year from February 1st - 28th

February is a month of celebration... from ringing in the Yokai New Year to the SuperBowl /party all the way to Hero's Heart Day! To help ALL our heroes get in the spirit, this month's seasonal set features a new set straight out of Empress Miko's royal Yokai Court: the Obsidian Samurai.

February Set: Obsidian Samurai

Starting Saturday, February 1st at 12:01 AM EST (that's server time), unlock the Obsidian Samurai armor and all its accessories!

There are two ways to get the gear:

1) Total package: Buy the entire set directly through the website for $9.99 USD 

2) Individually: Buy each of the individual pieces from Garek the Traveling Gear Merchant in Battleon.

The total cost to buy all of the gear individually is 5,400 ACs, so getting all the gear from the Obsidian Samurai pack is a pretty sweet deal (you save 3,400 ACs).

The set includes:

  • Obsidian Samurai armor
  • Samurai's Shadow Cape (glow is color-customizable)
  • Obsidian Samurai Banners cape
  • Obsidian Samurai's Helm and Masked Helm
  • 4 Obsidian Samurai hair helms
  • 5 weapons (including dual-wield katanas, nodachi, and naginata)
  • an exclusive character page badge

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this the same as the monthly upgrade bonus? 

Upgrade bonus gear is an extra reward for buying AdventureCoin or Membership packages; new bonus gear comes out roughly every month. Seasonal set packs are bought separately. Just like the Flame Dragon Warrior pack, you can buy the entire set directly, for one price, on our site. You can ALSO buy the individual pieces in-game.

This set will return EVERY February, so if you can't get it now, you'll have another chance in upcoming years.

What if I just want ONE of the items?

You're in luck! Talk to Garek in Battleon. He'll be selling the individual pieces of the set through February 29th.

Where do I get my gear if I buy the full set through the website?

You'll find it in your Book of Lore.
