    How do the spells work? It seems he has a lot of different spells which is not quite common in these types of games. I kinda like it.

    Like how they shifted away from just wizard classes.

    Hoping to see some heavy melee next preferably a dwarf ;D

    I've written this off as the first Cryptic game I won't even try, right after the first two alpha footages. Still, I always fell for it and check the interviews/videos in hope - just to end up with the foul taste in the mouth renewed.

    At least their targeting works decently, based on the comments under the video, there's the "I hate Magic and TCGs but I love diablo" people, the "nice, but action ain't fast enough compared to diablo" voices, etc.

    I kinda miss the mention of the fact, here's a 17 minutes long video of Magic Legends, and not one second of said time has the slightest resemblance of MtG... a real shame.

    Looks good!

    It looks nice.  However, there is one thing I really hate in ARPGs -- predetermined mob spawns.  If you watch, you will notice that the spell casting frequently occurs in areas, just before a hoard of enemies appear.  This makes the "encounter" more of a memorized sequence of activities than anything more reactive.  You learn how to "beat" a map only by knowing what and where the enemies will appear.  It makes these type of games more like executing pattern than an action game.

    But, still, it looked good.  I guess that's okay if that's all you are wanting from a game.



    Logic, my dear, merely enables one to be wrong with great authority.

    Can never have to many ARPGS , great time killers , and Legends looks to be shaping up nicely

    When I saw the boars charging I new I was gonna play this game right then.

    Looks pretty damn good for a pre-alpha. I'm looking forward to it.
  • WizardryWizardry Member LegendaryPosts: 19,273
    The effect animations look good but it pretty much ends there.

    Appears to be an arpg with a similar overhead camera.Also appears to be an instance game similar to arpg's.
    I guess we need some competition for POE and Diablo.Instead of gem slots you get card slots.

    So, I bought the $100 Founders pack for Albion Online back in like 2015. Not a huge fan of isometric games, but I decided to finally activate my account 5 years later and give it a go. Again, nothing, and I mean nothing is more annoying than using your mouse clicks to move / dodge.

    I can only wonder how much better Albion Online would have been in a 3D world environment.

    That being said, I just can't find a single reason to ever invest in isometric games anymore. At least for me.



    Looks Like Pagan Online and it has wasd controls.

    Private Mazel was pretty disgruntled. I like the way it looks and plays the summons vary and different animals are called forth . Probably will try it out for sure.

    For someone like me , who have been playing games such as D3 and PoE and looking forward for (especially) D4 and PoE2, this looks very, very inferior. For me it looks like a pre-pre-alpha KS game(play).

    And for someone like me, who have been playing Cryptic games since CoH, played MtG for a couple years (and playing still, in digital format), this looks a total letdown.
    Also I don't like diablo clones, so that is the icing on the (crap)cake.

    My main gripes are: it ain't an MMORPG (there goes the interest of my Cryptic fan side), and ain't MtG either (there goes the rest of my interest).
    The fact it's a diablo clone on top of that, is only a minor insult added to the injury...

    Sid Meier already presented a great formulae for open world rpg elements and multiplayer mixed with the authentic MtG gameplay, more than 20 years ago.
    Just slap Cryptic's engine on that game, add in a few hundred cards from the last 20 years, and that's it, you have a good and fun MtG MMORPG.

    Instead, they did this... a lame single/co-op lobby diablo game, with some MtG words painted on a few spells. A wasted opportunity, really.

    No loot in an ARPG? This game will fail so fast!

    You know this isn't beta or even alpha... it's pre-alpha. They put together something to show basic gameplay. Stop pretending this is a finished product that is ready to be released in its current state.

    Some of you people will cry about everything. If they release nothing to show gameplay, they are "keeping everyone in the dark because their game sucks". If they release something to show progress, their game is "a crappy Diablo clone".

    Pre-alpha people.... pre-alpha.

    Looks pretty polished. Also, looks pretty generic.

    Map is linear, yet they have a quest direction marker? Talk about hand holding.....jesus.
