    This game is proof of the sign of the times,cheaper less aggressive game builds.I played Runes of Magic and actually enjoyed it,yes a sort of Wow clone but did more than Wow and used the sub class system.
    Dragon's Prophet i did not like but i could see they went for an idea and the game was still an aggressive build.

    Runewalker does at least try to put several ideas in their games,i just don't like the cheaper platform/Diabloesque type game that is Embers.If it was a better open world concept with free look i would likely play it.

    However,i would say it is much better than Diablo given the same platform as Diablo really doesn't do anything besides waste your time until you get that perfect build then it is another brainless waste of time,at least Embers is building a rpg.

    So although Rune copies Blizzard a lot,they are 2/2 in my books as i would rather play Runes than Wow and this than Diablo.

    Piece of advice for you my dear Lahnmir, do yourself a favor and do not bring yourself into same level as this old fart does.

    I know, just every now and then he gets to me. Better to let it go I guess.

    If anything from what I've seen/played I would say Lost Ark is shaping up to be the lovechild you speak of.

    This review is from march - a B2P game with a cash shop.






    They've changed the cash shop some since that video was made. I don't know what changes they've made, since I haven't played recently, but they say they removed anything that could be P2W.

    What I like about GOE so far

    A) Crafting/Mining/Enchanting.  New, unique takes on old things that everyone does this same, I find the whole crafting aspect of this game really cool

    B) Housing is pretty well done, with the sprite maids to do work for you is another unique idea

    C) Multi-classing. Any game with multi-classing will always get a +++ from me

    D) Dungeons.  Fun to run over and over

    E) Fishing/Card Collecting.  Need little side game, with the Compediums tracks things like largest fish and crab you have caught.  Killing mobs has a small chance to drop a card that you put in a book for bonuses

    What I don't like

    A) Graphics aren't great, but they are fine

    B) Combat is kinda clunky and the skills are very complex to follow, not sure when to use what skill

    C) Even though B2P, looks like I will still need to spend on housing/pack space, which I really dont like

    Overall though, I am having fun, I play about an hour or 2 a day at most, and its fun, and I have a cool guild

    7.5/10

    I wonder how much they got paid to throw the words "lovechild of WoW and Diablo" in the title...This game shouldn't even be mentioned in the same conversation as those classics.

    I tried the game from backing it and said I could not handle the controls. I wanted to follow my mouse with a button push and stop on release. One of the people told me I would get use to what I felt was an archaic way to play. The fact I was trying to move and the delay on skills had them firing off behind me because I did not wait till skill went off after button press just had me close and uninstall.

    I am happy some people are enjoying it but it is not a game for me even though I bought it.

    *looks at bank account* Hmmmmm, golly sure doesn't look like I got paid anything to mention two other widely known games in a title I made so people could get a general idea of what GoE was trying to be.

    It's sort of funny that person with this in their signature:

    Feels so free to take cheap sleazy ignorant pot shots at the author. Apparently that rule only holds true when people are responding to them. It's unfortunately rude.

    I have never play Guardians of Ember, it looks tempting but I'm a little suspicious because of the bad notices. ______________________________________________ galaxy s7 edge galaxy s8 edge
