Runes of Magic is one of the few massively multiplayer online role-playing game or MMORPG, that allows use of addons. The use of addons is new in the Philippine Online Gaming scene, not only does it make the local gamers cautious but many simply ignore it for fear that it is a hack tool, a bot, or just a keylogger.
I will tell you now: addons are legal. As you can see in the screenshot below…
The first addon I want to share is WoWMap. I admit, I was a World of Warcraft player and I really like the worldmap feature of that game.
WoWMap gives us that functionality and feel. Taking it from the author:
Tired of having to work your way through that annoying dropdown menu every time you want to check something on a different map? Then WoWMap is for You! The aim of WoWMap is to make the worldmap of RoM feel like you may know it from WoW i.e. the map handling will be changed to feel more like WoW.
Runes of Magic Philippines launch Open Beta today, around two in the afternoon after a minor manual patch. Initially, there is only one server named ‘Blackstone’. Only a few minutes after the game went online there was already three channels (or sub-server instance if you will) and all crowded by newbies (and n00bs too).
As expected, there were gamers who are new to this type of 3rd Generation MMORPG. They asked a lot of questions which were answered by concerned and patient gamers who were lucky to join the Alpha and Closed Beta Test of RoM-PH (or played in the International servers).
