Rangers of Oblivion has a new game mode called ‘Withstand the Behemoth Tide’
The surprisingly well received mobile Monster Hunter inspired MMORPG Rangers of Oblivion has a new game mode.
Within Withstand the Behemoth Tide, the Rangers work closely to break free of the behemoth’s siege.
Hear ye, hear ye! Powerful primes capable of destroying Malheim are emerging in Rangers of Oblivion. The Rangers of Avalon and Silver Keep heard tell of this distressing news and are devising a battle plan, hoping to ‘Withstand the Behemoth Tide’, if you’re a Ranger (Level 50 or above) — they need your help!
Within the game mode, the Rangers work closely to break free of the behemoth’s siege. Nevertheless, as they strike down threat upon threat, multitudinous forms of monstrous danger await them …
‘Withstand the Behemoth Tide’ is divided into four stages: Outpost Skirmish, Expedition Assault, Blaze of the Tide, and Postwar Respite. During each stage, server objectives are available, in which all Rangers must work together as one. Players’ progress in these objectives will directly affect the Behemoth Tide’s progress and the difficulty level of following stages. Ranger Headquarters issue rewards at certain stages; if players meet certain objectives within the time limit, they’ll receive huge awards.
In ‘Withstand the Behemoth Tide’, the powerful primes also possess the power to change the weather. Rangers will be forced to battle under terrible conditions. As the Rangers draw closer to the primes, the conditions will worsen. During each stage, Rangers will be able to acquire ‘Spirit’ during hunts, which can be used to unlock and upgrade new Behemoth Tide skills, and these will grant certain stat bonuses. The Spirits gained depend on the prime of the current season. Once a season ends and a prime is gone, unused Spirits become ineffectual. Furthermore, skills unlocked and upgraded which have been used with these Spirits will decrease in power as time passes.
STAGE I: OUTPOST SKIRMISH (JULY 9TH – JULY 22ND)
Reconnoissance took place in the Expedition event, to gather information on the three vanguard behemoths required in the next stage.
STAGE II: EXPEDITION ASSAULT (JULY 23RD – AUG. 5TH)
Three vanguard behemoths to tackle, their strength differs according to the information gathered in the previous stage. The bad weather caused by the primes hinders the hunt.
STAGE III: BLAZE OF THE TIDE (AUG. 6TH – AUG. 12TH)
In this stage, players need to team up to hunt another three behemoths, consecutively. The last behemoth is a prime itself, and summons another minion behemoth in battle. Players face far more severe weather as the hunt progresses.
STAGE IV: POSTWAR RESPITE (AUG. 13TH – AUG. 19TH)
Players’ aim is to mop up the remaining force of the tide. The Malheim Challenge and Speed Hunt event are available during this stage.
In somewhat less daunting news, divination has thrown on another ensemble for you to rock while saving Malheim; find it fast and become a lone Ranger.
