Celebrate the holidays with MU Origin. The hit action MMO receives a massive update this month filled to the brim with new content and holiday cheer. You’ll find new battlefields and arenas, updated Companion features, a higher level cap (rebirth12 for all of you itching to get back to the experience grind), and plentiful goodies to keep you hooked through New Years and beyond.

Test your sword in the Battlefield of Emperor, an all new 20vs20 fight that pits the Alliance against the Order. Defeat your enemy’s Mineral Base and you’ll receive a healthy helping of experience points, Bound Zen, and Emperor points. The rewards are great if you have what it takes to stand up in this epic new battlefield. You can spend those hard-earned Emperor points on Tarot Cards once you beat the Master of the Forest quest. Equip Tarot Cards to further power up your character and gain special options.

The Companion Arena, too, offers new chances to test your mettle in combat. This arena mode is a 2vs2 battle between Companions that could give your character a chance to get the exclusive companion costume. You can send Blessings to other Companions, too, using different types of Flowers that grant unique effects.

Character customization is a big theme in this update, and the addition of Accessories builds on that in a big way. You can now buy Accessories from shops or activate them by fulfilling special requirements. These new upgrades grant your hero new character options that can boost your prowess in battle. Or, if pure aesthetics is what you’re after, you can now dress your character in the Santa Costume for some festive flair, or adopt Snow, the new seasonal pet.

Explore all of these new features and much more. You can find MU Origin on iOS and Android. The latest MU Origin trailer has been released today, what the newest update includes is now available on the official WEBZEN YouTube channel:

Get up to speed with everything you need to know in MU Origin’s latest update

Posted by 148Apps Staff on April 26th, 2017
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

In case you haven’t heard, MU Origin just got a colossal new update with new all-server events, battle modes, and systems making their way to the land of MU. Here’s a handy guide to everything you need to know about the latest content.

Brand new PVP mode – Battlefield of Heroes

To kick things off, there’s the new all-server PVP battle event, Battlefield of Heroes. Now, an RPG revamping its battle modes here and there might not seem like anything new – but in the land of MU things tend to be a little more epic. Pushing the boundaries of graphics capabilities and server limitations is the name of the game in MU Origin, and it’s perfectly exemplified in this gargantuan 100 player team battle event, fully realised in stunning 3D visuals.

Split into one of two teams, you’ll be competing against up to 50 other warriors, battling to gain points by vanquishing your opponents, hunting for bosses, and mining precious items. Every point you pick up brings the promise of better rewards so be sure to register from 21-00-21:25 every Tuesday and Friday to get involved in the action.

Battle Core Event

Another exciting all-server event served up in the latest update is Battle Core – a mad dash race for teams to reach 1,000 points in order to emerge victorious. There will be plenty of rewards for those that do, with large amounts of EXP, fame points, and achievement points earned for every victory. At the same token, rewards will diminish significantly after every loss, so there’s no room for any shirking.

To keep all things fair and competitive, the Battle Core system will assess the ability of each team to make sure that their opponents will be evenly matched, so it’s going to take brains as well as brawn to win.

Server Dungeons – ‘Harmageddon’ and ’Elemental War’

Team up with players from all over the world to take on evil in these two new all-server dungeons. These certainly aren’t to be taken lightly, with victory in Harmageddon only being achievable by defeating the final boss in under 15 minutes – and to get that far you will have to battle past the Four Knights in order to summon him.

Elemental War is no picnic either, with victory achieved only after destroying evil hordes one after the other. So what’s so hard about that you ask? Well, there are over 30 waves of them in total, and each get progressively more difficult with every one that you dispatch. On top of that, you’ll be battling against the clock as well – if there are any monsters left standing when the time limit expires then the dungeon will end, and so will your chance to pick up those precious rewards.

Upgrade your characters with the new Soul Stone and Relic Systems

Besides adding in some glorious new ways of engaging in combat, the latest update to MU Origin also provides some new and unique systems to upgrading your character and gaining buffs.
The Soul Stone system will task you with finding one of three different types of stone – Orbium, Tris, and Quadion – which when used and combined together in various ways will grant elemental stats to your character.

These precious stones can be found by mining for them using Diamonds and the mysterious Soul Dust – which can be obtained in the Elemental War dungeon and Battlefield of Heroes event.

The Relic system will provide even more ways to boost your character by piecing together the fabled Relics – Golden Grail, Golden Crown, Golden Sword, and Golden Scripture – from 6 different pieces. To get the benefits from the pieces, you’ll need to enhance them using fragments, which you can find in the Harmageddon dungeon and Battlefield of heroes event. Do all of that and you’re on your way to receiving some really powerful boosts to your stats.

But that’s not all...

Besides the big events and fancy new stat systems, you’ll find improvements in many more areas of the game. In-game items have had their stack limits significantly raised, three brand new pets have been introduced, the max equipment enhance level and Zodiac levels have been boosted, and there’s also a new costume system to give your character a fresh new look too. Besides all this, MU Origin is even letting you cut a few corners here and there with the Daily Benefits system, which allows you to instantly clear daily tasks.

MU Origin, Webzen’s highly popular fantasy MMORPG is getting ready to shake things up for the second time this year, as a new update makes its way to the Google Play and App Store from today. Introducing new systems, modes, and events, the land of MU is once again in need of thrill-hungry adventurers.

The first thing veterans will notice upon loading up the freshly-updated MMORPG , are the suite of new systems each capable of majorly influencing how players interact with the world. Most of note is update 1.7’s introduction of the Soul Stone system, which for the first time ever offers players the means to apply various unique elemental changes to their character, giving them an edge before entering battle.

As well as a slew of other substantial systems, the new update introduces two significant all-server gameplay options, ideal for those looking to get their EXP and achievement point fix. First up is Battle Core, an all-new event which acts as a race against time, requiring players to be the first to reach 1,000 points. From gathering chalices to defeating opposing warriors, balanced match-making assures victory is dependent on skill, and skill alone.

Also keeping things fresh is Battlefield of Heroes, a new PVP system beyond servers that sees an incredible 100 warriors enter the fray to do battle with each other. 50 v 50 madness is open for business every Tuesday and Friday between 21:00-22:25, rewarding those who succeed in mining, boss hunting, and everything else Battlefield of Heroes may throw at you.
