March 7, 2014 (Dublin, Ireland) – WEBZEN, a global leader in next-generation free-to-play games, unleashes the NIGHTSTALKER; a brand new advanced class for the dungeon-based MMORPG, CONTINENT OF THE NINTH SEAL (C9). Wielding powerful summoning and absorbing attacks, this newest advanced class for the WITCHBLADE is now available to all players.
NIGHTSTALKER is a mid-range class that can perform powerful summoning and absorbing attacks. She possesses SUMMON and ABSORB skills, which allow her to summon powerful servants to fight for her during battle and absorb the servants to enhance herself to deal massive damage.
Whenever the NIGHTSTALKER absorbs a servant, players will be able to temporarily gain a powerful and unique skill that each servant has. Her primary weapon is a Chain Blade, which is a two-handed weapon.
To celebrate the long-awaited arrival of the NIGHTSTALKER, CONTINENT OF THE NINTH SEAL has just launched an item giveaway for all adventurers to enjoy. From now through March 26, 2014 (Global Server Time), users can visit any of C9’s media partners to obtain a special item key. Players can redeem this code for free in-game rewards, including 10 Resurrection Scrolls, 5 Extreme Training Potions (100%) (1 Hour), Town Travel Level 1 (3 days) and School look gear set (7 Days).
Additionally, for the same period anyone who levels their NIGHTSTALKER character up to level 50 or more will be given special prizes. Full details of prize will be found on the C9 official website later.

Before the Genesis War, Manoa was an earthly paradise. The gods and their worshippers built huge temples and all lived in harmony. The Genesis War changed all that. Akene fell into a deep sleep and the gods who followed her vanished forever. Manoa became a desert and home to the Witchblades. The magic left behind by the gods drew them in and they began to develop their powers from it. The Dabel Priests called them witches and, not long after, began to hunt them down. Those who escaped the Dabel Priests gathered in Manoa, and soon the Witchblades were a force to be reckoned with. One group of Witchblades was particularly affected by the power of darkness granted to Arad, the black dragon. Dark powers so close to purity captivated the young girls, and their anger for the Dabel Priests began to grow. In the end, they focused their fury on summoning the fallen god Magnetic Gravito, exiled into the Netherworld by Akene, and redirected his want for revenge towards the Dabel Priests, laying the groundwork for a new reign of terror. One Dabel priest began to call these Witchblades, who could summon servants from the Nether, Nightstalkers.
