Samurai MMORPG

Giak82Giak82 romePosts: 15Member
Hi guys, I'm wondering if  someone knows an mmorpg settled in samurai age in japan. There are a lot of mmorpg about chinese history, martial arts and so on, but cannot find any about samurai. Or at least mmorpg where there is the samurai class (like FFXI).

And another question outside that: is EVE online still the only mmorpg with such kind of exp system (passive?)?

Thank you all

    1. The samurai in an MMO thing i am not sure about. Haven't seen one except FFXI's Samurai class also.



    2. As for the EvE Question. I think you are talking about the skill training. EvE is the only game that runs like that.



    Hope this helped.

    Umm, Ultima Online AFAIK has an Asian continent with Ninjas and Samurai as "Classes".

    Silkroad Online is also settled in some Asian flair (I don't know enough about the differences of China/Japan, so can't say how exactly).

    9 Dragons is a free to play (with item mall) martial arts game that i'm playing and i like it. It dosen't have samurai as a class, but has 6 clans to choose from at the begining: Shaolin, League of Beggars, Wu Tang, Heavenly Deamon, Sacred Flower and Brotherhood of thiefs.

    Personally, i don't think the idea of a samurai class makes much sense. because most mmorpgs already have a warrior class or an assassin class. Wouldn't a samurai be just another war or assassin? I guess they can add it to the game but in the days of samurai's, samurai's were to kill them selves then be captured. that would make some annoying game play if they went with the realistic ideal of the samurai. But other wise the FF game I've no knowledge besides that. Your best chance to find on is to just google it.

    Not really.  Samurai were nothing like a assassin, that would be a ninja.  Samurai would be a good non tank damage dealer class as they generally didn't use shields taking away from the "tank" image.  Samurai were also very good with a long bow as well as a sword so I think they would make a great damage dealer type class (Like they are in FFXI).

    -Currently looking forward to FFXIV

    -Currently playing EvE and Global Agenda

    The pnp RPG  Bushido, would be  a great game to make into an mmorpg.  It was a hybrid class/skill system which means you could be level one and train your sword skill up to max (assuming time/money etc).  And if you pemanently died, you get karma which is extra points to spend on the replacement character. 

    Most classes had two scores they had to advance to make level.    A bushi needed killing blows and honor to advance.  Ex:  to get from level 1 to level 2, you needed 10 killing blows and 10 points of honor. In pnp games, the honor became the interesting RPG aspect of the game.  Do something dishonorable and it could really hurt.

    As of right now, there are very Few MMORPGs that have Samurais, particularly the Samurai Armor.

    This is because of 3 things

    1- The Samurai is Strongly tied to Japan and Japan makes very Few MMOs to begin whit.

    2- The Samurai is viewd as only a side feature in the West, so incoporate's it very little in our games.

    3- Koreans View the image of the Samurai as "Devilish" and will down right refuse to anything closed to one in a game (particularly the Armor but not the Katana), even going so far as to get a pallet swap for games that have Samurais in them like Soul Blade/Soul Caliber (Hwang Seong-Gyeong and Arthur where the swaps for Mitsurugi in Korea)

    Beyond FFXI a have no idea of any other MMO that have Samurais in them and obviusly anyone that says Korean games have them is Dead Wrong.

    Keep it Simple

    And now you have contributed as well? The only thing I knew of was already said, I felt no need to say it again. But if you want me to add it, there is an expansion to UO where you can play Ninjas/Samurais. Of course that's a bit outdated. I guess you could try 2Moons, seems to be martial arts inspired at least.
