Riders of Icarus recently announced a huge update that is arriving during the next week. The update is called Sandstorm and it has got some interesting additions and changes that are surely going to make some players excited to get back on the grind.
The first new addition to the game is the new field raid boss called Sandstorm that arises from the sands of Cloying Wastes. This raid boss is known to be difficult for his humungous size which he can use to manipulate gusts of wind in order to eliminate large numbers of enemies. If you plan on facing this boss be sure to bring along Riders that are at least level 50 as this is a pretty difficult boss to defeat.
A new PvP zone called Stygaea is a new addition as well and it is meant for Riders that are level 40 or above. Riders will face each other in a huge war between servers in order to determinate which server is the strongest. This war is held in each and every region so anyone around the world can participate.
Ellora’s Spire is also a coming along with this update and it is the perfect event for anyone looking for a challenge. Riders that are above level 50 can participate and try to reach the top of Ellora’s Spire in order to gain power and fame. The Riders that place high in the weekly and monthly ranking ladders will get unique rewards.
Cross-server dungeon lobbies are a new feature that connects servers in a region so if you have a friend which is in the same region but not on the same server, you can still connect with him.
Besides these huge additions, you also get new Familiars which you can tame. They look pretty epic and grabbing these will make you look even more badass than you already are.
