ShadowFlame vs ShadowScythe

The Shadows of War: Evil Alliance Saga conclusion

The final chapter in our Shadows of War: Alliance of Evil story is live! Defend Shadowfall against the invading ShadowFlame army… and then travel through the shadows to reach its source. Team up with Dage the Evil and Nulgath the ArchFiend as they seek to ally with Gravelyn, Empress of the ShadowScythe in the war against Malgor. But beware... Malgor has other, darker plans in store.


Begin the final chapter in our three-part Evil Alliance story in /innershadows. Defend Shadowfall against the invading Shadowflame army… and then travel through the shadows to reach its source.

Yami no Ronin Bug Fix Update

Earlier this evening, a fix was rolled to the YnR class's DOT skill to prevent glitch abuse... but that fix caused instant, total damage, setting the player's HP to 0. Monday, the team will meet to revise the bug fix. An updated skill will roll ASAP.

This issue will only occur if the DOT is used under specific circumstances. If you are playing the game normally and using the class as intended, you will not experience the insta-kill issue. Please keep an eye on the Design Notes for further information later this coming week.
