About this wonderful reviewer:
Always been a bit of a gamer, tried a ton of mmorpg so im not even going to bother listing them all.. but the ones I played the most are probably Vanguard, Rift, Lineage2 and Tibia. I also played a lot of action games, fpses, rpgs, casual games and console games. 25 year old girl from Sweden, and since I am sure your not the bit interested in this stuff I'll stop right there :P
Before trying it?
Ugh, it looks just like other korean games following the Lineage2 look, sure.. the graphics looks amazing in the videos, but general style is very asian which ive never been a fan of. Seriously, after L2 was a hit they copied it all over, Shaiya, Perfect World, Aion, to me.. their all real similar with just some niche features and semi-different classes/races.. but it was so pretty!
The combat however looked amazing, I loved monster hunter and dark souls, I am so tired of tab targeting and the healing mechanics of just looking at player names and clicking heal buttons. The mystic class intrigued me as it looks very very unique.
The skimpy clothes? Neh.. any game does this, seriously, maybe more so than other games. But lets face it thats where the media is heading, so this didnt scare me off. There is also some seriously lightly clothed males. and no, not as nude as some female races, but I think most girls would be weirded out by seeing a guy running around in a thong!
I login and omg.. not very unique graphicstyle or not, the game is absolutely amazing on maxed graphicsettings. I made a high elf female mystic, hah the bounce is hilarious! (its not why i made her! shes just pretty.. yes, I'm vain.. sue me!) Combat seems fun as hell, but that there is no point to dodge beginning monsters which is dissapointing, but I find out that I need to get to 20 for that to be a big deal.
Ad..ad...addicted! Killed my first BAM now, did an instance, that excitement and heart beating faster trying to keep my team alive while dropping healing orbs on the ground. Fuuun.. lots to do and not quite sure what to do next. I love this game now. Also notice peoples complaint about Elins, helloo? never watch anything anime like? I dont even like anime and I realise this is simply culture difference.
Quests get a bit more boring now, i never bothered reading quest notes but the lack of different quests and running from questhub to questhub does get boring, but killing bams and doing instances instead makes this matter way less.
Stll really hooked to this game, didnt expect to be. I started in closed beta and having the time of my life still. I love the graphics. Havnt tried pvp, sorry, not really a big focus for me in MMORPGs. rather go to League of Legends or something for that kinda stuff but I bet pvp server in this game would be fun as hell.
But I am only 40 soon, this might change, but I find the game to be worth its money, it should really get more recognition. I have to add ive seen more girls in this game than any other MMORPG.. its the prettyness I bet also.. we kick ass.. thats all.
1. Corrected brain issue where i mixed up jrpg with korean mmorpg.
