Introducing the newest Silkroad Online Avatar costume: the Janissary Outfit.  Thought to be extinct, these emissaries were experts in thievery and once conquered the Silkroad, holding it for their exclusive pillaging.  As the bearers of the magical Yatagan, they easily stand out from a crowd; with flexible tactics, their battle prowess is equal to that of existing classes.  The undisputed masters of the strategic “false retreat,” the Janissary Outfit avatar is not to be trifled with.

A 4-Week Gold Time pass gives players numerous benefits, including a 3-hour bonus daily that doubles character & skill experience.  While a ticket is active, players can also acquire and complete Premium PLUS quests – these challenging tasks reward players with additional skill points.  Available for sale now at the low price of 92 silk, these passes are available for characters up to level 90.

Premium Gold Tickets, once a rare and coveted prize from the Genie’s Lamp, are now available for sale!  Holders of a Premium Gold Ticket will get priority log in time, even during the busiest parts of the day.  In addition, they will receive a daily 5-hour increase in character and skill experience, doubling the exp earned during the boost!  Physical and Magical damage and defense for all ticket holders is boosted by 10%, attack and parry is boosted by an additional 10%, and characters will enjoy a bonus 10 stat points in both Str and Int.  While a ticket is active, players can also acquire and complete Premium PLUS quests.  Need better equipment?  Holding a Premium Gold Ticket boosts enchanting by 5% and enhancing by 10%, giving you an extra chance to create the perfect piece of armor or the deadliest weapon.  Players can grab these tickets for a limited time for 290 silk.
