Happy Halloween Update

  • 2 years ago

The final full week of October brings a new update, with a new Halloween event, a massive change to the Seal of Bravery shop, a returning horror as Fergus tries his hand at Enhancement yet again and more!


Hungry Ghosts Event

A multitude of Halloween Spirits have invaded the battlefields of Vindictus, and a few spooky souls are giving the Traveler a personal visit. Help him out and capture those troublesome spirits to lift his mind... not to mention grabbing some fancy rewards of your own!
