Shadowblade Expansion Adds the Assassin in Revelation Online

It appears that the Shadowblade expansion has officially dropped for Revelation Online. The Assassin has been a highly anticipated class ever since its reveal and now players will finally be able to get their hands on it.


Those who make it to level 45 or above will be able to take on a heroic questline to unlock the rare Venom ZX500 motorbike mount. Not interested in leveling a completely new character? There will be a class and equipment change feature to swap over your existing character.

In addition to the Assassin class, there will be all kinds of new content for the original classes including unique Class Areas with access to new vendors, Soul Grids, class-specific skill sets and abilities. Here is a list and description of the seven Class Areas:

  • Assassin Area – Scorpion Plains: The misty Scorpion Plains bring together the most lethal mercenaries.
  • Blademaster Area – Contender’s Peak: High above the clouds and guarded by wyverns, this rugged spot is a meeting place where Blademasters put their steel to the test and forge the mightiest weapons.
  • Gunslinger Area – Imperial Marksman Academy: The Gunslinger Class Area is located underground, flanked by an enormous pyramid. Countless silos ensure that there’s always enough gunpowder to go around.
  • Occultist Area – Realm of Shattered Light: Ominous whisperings can be heard across this twilit haunt. Buzzards dot the sky, swooping down intermittently to torment the forgotten souls that wander the realm.
  • Spirit Shaper Area – Valley of Spirits: The Valley of Spirits is a gathering of hardy souls who seek to become one with nature. This lush expanse teems with exotic plant life and rare animals.
  • Swordmage Area – Starward Meridian: Swordmage disciples chose this snowy location for its unfettered view of the cosmos. It’s also home to Ashwing Cranes, who yearn for fearless riders
  • Vanguard Area – Maple Ridge: Impregnable fortifications and Thundermane sentries ensure that no trespassers set foot in Maple Ridge. Vanguards train tirelessly to become elite soldiers.

Our Thoughts:

Rogue style classes are usually some of the most popular in MMORPGs and it was surprising that Revelation Online didn’t have any on launch. Now that the Assassin is officially available, we definitely expect to see a lot of them out on the battlefield.
