I was following this game a few years ago and stopped paying attention to it. I started paying attention to it again recently and couldn't believe that it hadn't been released yet. It was the only MMO that was getting my attention at the time. I've seen some gameplay\combat vids recently and it looks fast paced and great. Haters gonna hate, but I'm still excited from what I've seen. They have really polished the game up pretty nicely.

Thanks for the info.

Looks like a great game and I love the character creation, the only downside I see is it will probably be a pay to win pvp kinda game if they follow the Korean version. Wish they sold a offline version as I would buy it and grind/play at my own pace.

The one thing that is kinda iffy is the cart/destruction setup.....while it claims you get nothing for doing it (destroying the cart) I could see people grieving others on the US servers.

According to Steparu the developer destroyed the game well before the Korean launch so I expect it to be absolutely awful. I kinda loved the sorc but my interest faded months ago.

I may give it a try for 30€ though.

Things have and are being changed from the f2p korean and russian versions, since the international version is p2p. Anyways, this is easily going to be the best mmorpg of 2016.

Game looks nice and I have also been following it for awhile. However, I do wonder how well it will run since it is still a MMO.

Tried this self proclaimed "best character creation system in video game history" yesterday and it's not what I expected.

All classes are gender exclusive, and your body frame is permanently fixed, you can still adjust the size of your limbs, your height and muscularity etc, but options are minor and insignificant, the most editable part is your face.

I'd probably still give it a chance consider how beautiful the game world is and can be played as SP RPG. But as far as character customization, most SP rpg, say dragon's Dogma already had much deeper system.

The biggest difficulty is creating a character that doesn't look Asian. I understand that the game is Korean, but boy was it a challenge. This is what I ended up after several hours:

If an F2P Korean MMO is going to be the best MMO of 2016, then things must be looking really bleak for this genre.

I rarely see the game dip below 60 FPS for more than a second or two, but as far as the quality of the game, I've loved it. I haven't sank much time into it, seeing as I have a career that currently takes up most of my time, but a summary of my feelings... Keep in mind, this is coming from the prospective of an ex-FFXI dedicated player for 10+ years.

So, as far as game play goes, there is an entire farming/worker/real estate system that I havn't gotten very far into, but it seems to be a pretty decent side game to play. Think... Fable (buying real-estate) with resources/trading as the dividend.

The game play is mostly grinding. 90% of your leveling will come from grinding mobs for exp, having no level cap. The speed of leveling is quite a bit fast in my opinion, but once again, keep in mind my main MMO background was FFXI. Having a background in FFXI, if this means anything to you guys, pre-2010 leveling, this game is about 10x the leveling speed when grinding.

In all, when I play, I've really enjoyed it. The lack of english players, and lack of Dub is what keeps me from spending all of my 'free time' on it.
