12 July 2022: 2022 Summer Event

Sunshine, beaches, ice-cream and peaches. For most of us, summer has already been going on for a while, but for Curse of Aros it has just begun. Team battles, balloons, contests and shard sales is forcasted for the coming two weeks. Oh yeah, did we mention you can swim on the Summer island? Hop in and have fun, make sure no one throws you in!

Two new bosses

With two new bosses coming this update, you can really grind for that sweet loot. The Kraken has all new mechanics, and one hell of an animation. The Beach Ball is busting some old, but effective moves!We've added a system where you get the next item in line if you're rolled one you've gotten before. No duplicates!And don't worry about dying to the bosses, the Summer Gods have blessed your exp. Speaking of exp, did we mention the return of the Event Spirit? For those who don't know, the Event Spirit gives everyone a chance at +50% xp world bonus every time a Beach Ball or Kraken is taken down. Both bosses have pets and cosmetic drops that can be obtained via drops or through the cosmetic shop.

Minigames

During the event we'll also be running minigames throughout the weekends. Both weekends have entirely different minigames, so stay tuned for Friday's announcement on more details. A discord invite will be sent out for both weekends for when the minigames will go live.

Brand-new Limited Time cosmetics

We loved the feedback from the easter event, and we heard you loud and clear. MORE COSMETICS. Our wonderful artists have yet again exceeded expectations, and we have a very exciting summer collection that should have something for everyone. The new cosmetics are for sale until Sept 1st, 2022. After which they will be removed from the cosmetic shop.

POP! POP!

The balloons are back, which means CoA is celebrating yet another birthday! As tradition goes, we've of course added the Party Hat 4 🥳 . Killing balloons is the only way to get a Party Hat 4 🥳 drop. Make sure to plug your ears before they pop!

15 April 2022

- Quick, we need your help! The Angry Carrot has taken over the easter island and trapped the easter bunny. We need your help taking him down. Please approach carefully, we've had dozens of reports of carrot bombs that instantly kill you if you're caught in their explosion (don't worry, you wont lose xp if u die to a carrot bomb). Although he's angry, Easter always puts The Angry Carrot in a good mood. He has decided to give drops to everyone and chances at double xp for the entire world! Walk through the easter egg at spawn to start your battle!

1 Febuary 2022

Magic has just been added to the game as well as many other things. Read more here

IMPORTANT PLEASE READ

- THE LATEST CLIENT VERSION IS REQUIRED. YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO LOGIN WITHOUT VERSION 1.27.0

Wishing well 50% xp boosts will NOT work for Magic + Tailoring on initial release (it will still work for other skills). Magic and tailoring are capped at level 60, we did this in case there are any unexpected XP exploits. They will be raised throughout the week.

Magic:

- As everyone already knew, Magic falls on February 1st, 2022. So without further adue, Magic is finally here! One of the longest waited and hyped Curse of Aros updates have arrived. Magic brings a whole new dimension to combat in Curse of Aros. Use cover and distance to your advantage with the new Mage class. Initially, there are 4 classes of tomes. Fire, Nature, Curse, Ice. Tomes are your ammunition. Every single time you cast a spell, it consumes a tome (more specifics on this later). A mage's strength is keeping their distance and doing a lot of damage from afar. Getting too close is dangerous as you don't have as much defense as warriors. Start using magic by visiting the merchant in Brightleaf and buying yourself a Wand and some Ember tomes. To attack mobs, click on the mob you want to attack and an outline will appear around them. Once the outline is visible, you can hit the attack button to cast a spell. Group mobs together for some awesome AoE combinations and big crits. The enchanted staffs (level 30), are enchanted with Fire, Nature, Curse, and Ice powers. Use the same class tome and staff for a passive buff of +10% accuracy and damage, and 25% chance of not consuming a tome when casting a spell. This is just the start, magic will bring so much change to Curse of Aros and we can't wait to share it with you.

- The Nature Dungeon:

- The latest of our elemental dungeon series has arrived. The Nature Dungeon. This dungeon starts off as a relatively low training area which is Magic Only. Grind mobs until you have enough kills to unlock the path to the puzzle room. Once you enter the puzzle room, you're on your own. You will not see any other players while you're inside of the puzzle room. Solve the puzzle to enter the boss chambers. The boss is a medium level Nature Elder. Don't let his level fool you, he is a VERY tough boss to beat without a good team. Make sure to bring Anti-Poison Serums, Scroll of Magic and lots of heals. You can find the entrance north of Brightleaf where the Xmas and Hween event were.

Tailoring :

 - Tailoring is our newest non-combat skill in CoA. Use the tailoring skill to make tomes and staves for Magic. Tailoring will eventually be one of the biggest skills in CoA, with future uses for Archery, Sailing, Home Building, Guild Halls and more.

HR-PvP:

- After long discussion we've made the choice to vault Hr-PvP (safe pvp and battlegrounds still available). HR-PvP as it stands in not in an healthy enough state to keep it in the game. It currently remains quite unpopular and is the cause of a lot of problems within the community. We'll work on HR-PvP behind the scenes and re-release it once we think its in a healthier state for everyone to enjoy. 

Skilling Island:

- The Skilling Island is a new piece of content for skillers who really enjoy the grind. To access the Skilling Island you'll need passes;Skilling Passes to be specific. Each pass grants you 60 seconds of access on the island, once your time is up, you'll be kicked off. Initially, skilling passes are obtained through world boosts. Each boost tier will provide you with Skilling Island Passes. Feel free to use them yourself or sell them to other players. The breakdown of how many passes per tier is as follows.
- 20 min boost = 1 hr of Skilling Passes
- 1 hr boost = 1 hr of Skilling Passes
- 2 hr boost = 2 hr of Skilling Passes
- 4 hr boost = 3 hr of Skilling Passes
- 6 hr boost = 4 hr of Skilling Passes
