  Buena Park, California – February 6, 2013 –Gravity Interactive, a publisher of exciting massive multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs), has launched the powerful second class evolution for the Ninja on  5 th February, 2013! After this update on Renewal, Ninjas can level beyond 99, giving them a massive boost in power! Find out more about the cunning and elusive Kagerou and Oboro here:   http://www.playragnarok.com/news/updatedetail.aspx?id=224&p=1.

Many ages ago, there was a powerful clan of shadow warriors who served the Lord of Amatsu. Content to be the right hand to the feudal warlord, they were known as the Ninja-silent assassins who excelled in weapon and magical arts.

In time, the Lord of Amatsu grew to mistrust their growing power and influence, and they were forced to retreat to the shadows they held so dear. These Ninja passed into the realm of legend, a fairy tale told to frighten small children.

Just recently the descendants of the original Ninja have returned to assist in the battle against the forces of evil in Rune Midgards, and have been gathering recruits to pass on their ancient techniques.

Until now, there have been no men or women strong enough in body and spirit to learn the most secret Ninja arts, those developed by the founding members of the clan so long ago.

That is about to change. Beginning now, ninjas at base level 99 and job level 70 will be able to develop themselves into advanced Kagerou and Oboro class characters, super-powered Ninjas with a yen…for battle!

A descendant of the original Ninja clan has returned to assist in the battle against the forces of evil in Rune Midgard, and have been gathering recruits to pass on their ancient techniques.

"The ninjas have long been a favorite class to many, but they were limited in power due to their level restrictions, “says Ragnarok Lead Producer, Jason Heimdallr Koerperich. “The Male Kagerou and Female Oboro classes are much stronger than Ninjas; whether you built your Ninja around magic or hand-to-hand combat you’ll find skills to complement your build!”
