Battle of the Nine will feature a magnitude of new instances as part of a permanent fixture on TalonRO in the coming months. Players will be able to experience a whole new reward system on Ragnarok Online with rare prizes (as well as unique mobs and dungeons). The instances will open an exciting story arc, along with direct access to a lobby system, similar to Game Master Challenge.
Rune Midgard has been plagued by a disease which originated from the events of Nightmare’s Rift, a curse summoned by the fallen Sword Maidens, demonic entities from a parallel world. The scourge has been spreading in towns and villages across Rune Midgard. King Tristan III and the church have tried and tested endless remedies to no avail. A scholar from Arunafeltz has studied through archaic manuscripts and scrolls specifically on Asgard, discovering a potential cure that will effectively diminish any typing of disease infested upon living souls.
In order to obtain this curative artefact, Prontera had devised a plan to open a portal to Asgard in hopes of retrieving the required tech to aid priests and alchemists across the world in creating a remedy and ridding the plague that is spreading at an alarming rate. The Valkyries showed no initial interest in the plight, and effectively started a war with the human race, warning those who enter Valhalla with intentions to pillage, would face the true might of the nine.
It wasn't until their confrontation with the plague when the Valkyries realized how serious the Nightmare's Rift epidemic was. With their newfound alliance, and the threat eradicated by the Valkyries, one collapsed to the scorching plague emitted by the shroud. Valkyrie Randgris had been afflicted with the disease that once swept across Rune Midgard, having fallen victim to pestilence during Elysian Garden's purge.
Despite her sister's efforts, Randgris had succumbed to darkness and had taken refuge beyond Odin's Temple. The Valkyries enlisted the best to aid them in vanquishing the shroud infesting Randgris, believing that remnants of her former self still existed. The Rune Midgardians defeated Dark Randgris, yielding respect from the Valkyries and solidifying their allegiance.
Valkyrie Hildr spent her days at the care of Randgris postmortem, restoring her back to full health. Together with Randgris’ recollection of past events, they unveiled one of the biggest coverts of the ages schemed by a God. It was then, that Hildr witnessed a horrifying vision of a far greater evil.
Meanwhile, Valkyrie Prima made her debut in Rune Midgard in the form of a concert, Midgardians were warned by Brynhildr of the power Prima yielded from just her singing voice; renowned to split planets in half. In an attempt to stop Prima from going ahead with her musical debut, they were tasked on a mission to confront the Valkyrie. After the intervention was successfully carried out, Hildr attempted to warn everyone that it was Loki; son of Odin, who started the entire
Nightmare's Rift epidemic.
The word quickly spread of Loki's involvement, but the people of Asgard, along with the Valkyries had their doubts, not willing to believe it could have been Loki. Little did they know that the God of mischief had a hidden agenda, scheming to manipulate the Valkyries in his favor over time...
