And now for something completely different. Metin2 announced an update yesterday and we weren't overly enthusiastic about the news based upon the PR headline until we came to this line:
"increase HP,SP, and MP by choosing the new hair style."
Indeed folks, it seems the four new hair styles available in Metin2 will increase your power level. This has to be the first hair-related stats bonus of which we've ever heard and we're quite amused by it.
If a mage burns your hair, do you become less powerful?
If you hide in a cave for 20 years and let it grow, will you become more powerful?
Empowerment by hair isn't the only aspect of this update but it is by far the most amusing. The update also features a limited edition mount that increases EXP and movement speed. Z8games is also running in-game events to coincide with the new patch.
Sharpen your swords and let your hair grow, folks. It's going to be a long ride.
