I played Lineage 2 up to lvl 54 when the game first came out, but after going red, dying and losing months of hard work, I just couldn't take it. I loved the game because of the Anime and PvP theme, but I definitely will never miss the grind that I endured.
After recently searching for a game(bored to death), I came up with RF Online. The art style is the splitting image of Lineage 2, and the fact that it is a Fantasy/Sci-fi hybrid is a huge plus in my book. Moreover, it seems people can achieve lvl 30-40 (out of 50) in 1 day. The PvP is also suppose to be great, so I loaded up the 7 day trial to give it a whirl.
The first thing I noticed is that the character creation was shallowest character creation that I have ever experienced. I thought Lineage 2's character creation was shallow, but this one took the cake. There were like 3-5 faces that looked all too similar(Cora), around 5 hair styles, but worst part about it, the game would not even let me change the hair color of my character.
Now, I know that that I should not write a game off because of lousy character creation, but it made me wonder if the rest of the game would be this shallow. I logged in and played to around lvl 5, and knew off the bat that this game is going to be a grind game, I read up about the grind, and seeing that it can take up to 6 months to reach level 50 after the short grind to 40.(Is the grind going to actually be THAT long?)
With that said, anyone know if I'll be wasting my time if I continue with this game? If so, is there any other Anime themed PvP game with a low grind worth trying?
I'm currently waiting for Aion, but I need a short term fix until then.
Thanks in advanced.
