"A HACK & SLASH MMO from our friends in Asia, incredibly fun but gets repetive. Also it is very Anime and the plot is abysmal but it is very fun."

Update Notes



Lann is one of the original mercenaries to grace Vindictus. New warriors have come along over the years, but this hardened warrior known for his tenacity and unwavering bravery in the battlefield, will not be forgotten. This month, we honor Lann and give him the recognition he deserves. He's been putting in some time perfecting his skills, and now it’s time for him to show the new warriors how it's done.

Vindictus is a textbook example of how Nexon operates.
They take a well designed game, tear out content, and set up a fiendish pay2play and pay2win system.
Vindictus follows this pattern to the letter.

The game itself is rather well designed. Engaging, live action, hack and slash combat is what Vindictus is all about, and the actual gameplay is pretty fun.
However, as you'll notice fairly early on, this game is absurdly grindy, and super repetitive.
Within all the areas, the difference between one level in a certain area and another level in the same area is the boss at the end...and that's it. You'll run the same path through the same map each time, fighting the same mobs each time, and doing the same things each time, until you reach the boss, which is usually marginally different from the last. (Though most times only marginally.)

Nexon has taken great care to rip out most of the gear our friends in Korea and Europe use.
In Korea and Europe, options abound for endgame gear, which greatly reduces grind.
In NA, unfortuately, the only endgame gear option is "Everlasting" gear, which can only be obtained by finding a rare item in a raid dungeon (which you can only do 3 times per week) which has a drop rate of below 0.0000001%.
(Subsequent patches have added other gear options, but Nexon has nerfed those gear options, to perpetuate the need for Everlasting gear.)

Apparently, Nexon seems to think, "If we prevent the Americans from being able to get to the endgame and "win" they'll play forever." I am living proof of their ignorance.

And then, as a final insult, if you do manage to get the endgame gear, against all odds, your gear is worthless unless it's enhanced. Unlike many other companies, which have moved on to more player friendly enhancment models, Nexon still clings stubbornly to the age old system that threatens to destroy your items if special "protecting" items are not used.
In this case, those "protecting" items cost 25 dollars in Vindictus. 25 dollars! And what do these protecting items do?
They protect your item ONCE, and are consumed regardless of success or failure. Nexon will charge you, literally, hundreds of dollars just for enhancement alone, which is practically mandatory if you want to be able to do anything against the endgame bosses.

So basically, if you want to do ANYTHING in this game beyond just mindlessly leveling your characters, you'll need to spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars to get anywhere.

It makes me very sad, because Vindictus could have been a good game. I could have enjoyed playing Vindictus for years to come, but sadly, the evil of Nexon has corrupted yet another game...more wasted potential.

In short, Vindictus is yet another soulless machine designed to suck up as much cash as it can, and drive away anyone whos pockets aren't deep enough to keep up with its demands.

I was a player on West server that has now quit the game entirely. I have experienced the game from 1-80, and currently have a level 80 character, as long as 60-70 for most other characters. So all of what I have to say is from experience.

Pros
Combat is engaging and skillbased.
Engine can be funny at times.


Cons
Nexon is a terrible company.
The community is full of trolls and elitists.
Economy fluctuates rapidly without rhyme or reason.
Pay2Win.
Unbalanced classes.
Early-Endgame is intimidating and unrewarding.
Progression becomes incredibly difficult.

Vindictus by definition is a Korean-made Hack 'n' Slash action game, with a choice of 8 current character classes (one upcoming) that each mostly fill a niche in the game as it stands. Storywise? The game is lacking. It's apparent that the voice acting in cutscenes are terribly synced, with zero enthusiasm whatsoever. Not to mention, it barely makes sense, it's tough to relate to any of the characters, and questing/story has devolved into a way to level up faster. As far as mechanics go, the game is amazing. Early on, the game guides you along in combat, but hits a wall in skill requirement once you begin to transition into endgame (Level 60-80). This leads to a challenging, engaging experience, as you require quite a bit of skill, and knowledge of both your character and the boss in order to succeed. Example being the solo videos out there on YouTube, which are quite impressive. Vindictus currently runs on source engine, the physics can be wonky at some times, however. With such things as clipping, or bulging polygons extending throughout the map, or a monster getting launched into space for no reason whatsoever. These can lead to much hilarity. The problems in Vindictus however, are too large for me to be able to enjoy this game anymore.

First off, let's talk about your experience from beginning to end. So you start up Vindictus. 8 characters to choose from, how exciting! Can you change their genders? Though this is something that is common in most MMOs, no. Can I change my appearance? Your options in the beginning are very limited, if you want to change up the look of your character, expect to pay $20 or more on just that. Now let's discuss the balancing of the characters, and the roles they play in Vindictus. Though this topic is very short-lived. The balancing of the game is handled very haphazardly. Currently, Hurk and Kai hold the position of godtier within the game. Where everyone else is disregarded. So if you're looking for stats, choose those two. So you've chosen your character! Time to get into the game! But wait, why don't I have any money? Well, that's because Nexon decided it would be a great idea to gut the early game by preventing gold gains from 1-25. Why? To combat botters. This is concerning however, because the earliest parts of a game are usually the most important to ensure people stay around. Surely the game will pick up right? Correct, the game does end up picking up once you are able to make some money, and have gained a general bit of knowledge about your character. Sadly, this is also when Vindictus transitions into a grindfest. Your experience at this point will consist of rushing through the "storyline", leveling up with barely any money, until you finally hit a brick-wall -- endgame. Endgame in Vindictus is atrocious. If you're not willing to expend any real currency within the level 60-80 range, don't expect to be progressing at all, unless you're incredibly lucky with drops. This is where players frequently quit, if they haven't already in the beginning. As the game becomes frustrating and unrewarding as it attempts to milk you of your money. Upgrades are incredibly hard to come by, and risks can leave you with absolutely nothing. Only the longterm players have stuck around at this point, when the game becomes a social hub for them.

The community itself is terrible. New players on the nexon forums are frequently driven away when attempting to ask questions. Which in itself is filled with trolls, and sarcastic elitists. Don't even get me started on the ingame community. Where if you don't meet the standards of the host, you can be kicked out without hesitation. So yes, the game itself is also filled with elitist jerks. Though it's to be expected out of any game, I have not seen any community similar to Vindictus in this aspect.

Now, let's talk about Nexon. Nexon is notorious for treating its players terribly. Send in a ticket? We'll answer with an automated message then get back to you after a few months. Concern about bugs and patches? There's a chance we'll even consider reading about your concerns, and if we do, it's likely we'll do nothing about it. However, here's a poorly designed event to hopefully make you forget about all of these problems. Updates? Maybe we'll release a bit of content after half a year, of course we won't tell you anything about it. Over my time with Nexon products, I'm ashamed I've stuck around with their games for so long. If Vindictus were to be handed over to another corporation, I'd gladly come back, but the way that Nexon is handling Vindictus is slowly killing the game.


TL;DR Vindictus is slowly dying. Fun for a while, but then you hit a brick wall.

Pros: Nice Artstyle, good graphics on high, Can be fun for a while until you start grinding

Cons: 2 words: ♥♥♥♥♥♥ company. Bad customer service, doesn't give a ♥♥♥♥ about their customers. They also always find a way to make money either releasing nx items or sales instead of dealing with more important ♥♥♥♥ in the game. Even if they have maintanance to fix something, it may be extended, sometimes up to hours.

Overall: a decent game, If only it wasn't ruined by nexon america

Vindictus is a relatively well-made free to play MMO with a real time combat at its core. Optional pay component assist the player in levelling and customisation of their character.
Where character design is concerned the game offers a detailed (and above average) character editor but remains restricted to a handful of pre-designed in look and combat abilities archetypes.

In principle the game is all about instanced combat. Each instance is travelled to by the party where it can attempt to complete various primary and secondary quests as its members hack their way through legions of instance specific monsters. The whole thing takes between 15 minutes to 1 hour (at least in the early stages of the game) after which you are free to move onto a next instance (as long as it has been unlocked in story progress).

Enemy AI, aside from bosses is non-existent, though boss fights are challenging and on rare occasions entertaining.
There is a story attached to this offering though it should be interpreted through Far Eastern lenses (NPCs, archetypes, conversations, events are exactly what you would expect to find in modern JRPG).

Vindictus is a mediocre game, one that lacks support and interest from its developer and publisher. Nexon is quick to ban players (even paying ones) for problems beyond their (players) control and the GMs remain unresponsive to their tickets leaving some stranded for weeks if not months at time and in some cases without a way to resolve the issues.

All in all there are better offerings available to those interested in free to play setup as such it is my recommendation to give this one a miss.

Two words

Nexon Grindfest


Also, current "anti-bot" and security measures make it a pain in the ♥♥♥ to play.

Currently waiting 10 minutes to let me do anything because I dared to take my laptop somewhere else and play.

Also the pay model is insane ($12.50 to expand your inventory by 1/3)

Nexon won't help you ever. Don't expect help, expect NOTHING but unstable gameplay. Their customer support is either A: Talking to a brick wall or B: Talking to an automated bot that replys with a generic apology.

I've played this game closed beta. I played the open beta. I didn't always stick around but I came back to try new characters or to just get back into the game again. I've put in many many hours. I downloaded it from steam to keep the game updated, and boy am I glad I haven't spent any money on them because regardless of the issue they will refuse to help you no matter how small the problem. Nexon America will screw you over time and time again. I can go into my ticket history and not one single problem was resolved. They should just close the ticket website (Which is down anyways at this time) and just tell you out right that you will not get the help you want. I love this game, but with any game comes problems, and boy have I had problems. Some for example small ones where I didn't get an event item for logging in, and I understand they can't help there. Other times I have lost millions of gold in items just because their mail system didn't work this one time. I had an item from when I made an Arisha that I sent to my Evie through mail. I bought the item because it was a great quality item and it cost me 10million. For some thats not a lot but for me its hours and hours and HOURS of gameplay to get the items to make that much money.

Before in the past since 2006 I have had countless problems with them and each time I sent a ticket I have been helped 0 times. Zero times have they helped rather each and every time they tell me they have reviewed my problem and they "Can not help me with "Enter problem here" and we apologize for the inconvienence." I wouldn't give a flying F**K if they would use their adequite logs to assist me in retrieving the mail lost in cyber space. No this hasn't happened in just one game but all of them. I can list 20 tickets at least where I have unresolved problems, just an apology. They refuse to help and I don't know why I expect them to. If you can accept the fact you will spend time and that spent time will disappear on command (Nexon is incredibly notorious for things going horribly wrong especially during events and updates) then enjoy the game and expect absolutely no help from them.

TL;DR
It's like a good game, but it's glitchy as f**k in alpha and there is no customer support, rather an apology center where they finger their ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s. Not to mention everyone is always complaining of ♥♥♥♥♥♥ servers because they can't host a game worth ♥♥♥♥. It can take months to get a reply for example being banned it took them almost two months to reply and still didnt resolve the problem. By then he quit the game completely considering he was banned for botting... (This was a friends account who never again played). Expect no help and expect to get disconnected at ANY TIME ANYWHERE.

"We appreciate your patience and do sincerely apologize for any inconvenience. After carefully reviewing our logs..."

"We have reviewed the situation and unfortunately, we will not be able to assist with the recovery of this mail. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience."

"Thank you for contacting Nexon America Customer Support. I'm...
...Thank you again for your continued patience and please remember to check your mailbox periodically throughout the week.

Thank you

Sincerely,"

TL:DR - Introducing Vindictus: Brought to you by Nexon. A company that lures players with FREE to play games
but eventually you'll give into temptation and spend a ton of money -cough Pay2win-
NOT for fun. If you want to have fun, I suggest you play something else and stay away from NEXON.

First we have to pick a class/character to start, 9/10 players would ignore the big black guy.
Let's pick a girl, while we're at it, why not make her look attractive and sexy. (Definitely not trying to hit on guys online)

Let's start with character customization, you pay for your hair and underwears, Deal with it.
10/10 would enlarge boobs to maximum. The more pixels you have, the better.

Let's play the game now, level 1 to level 40. Basic training and learning the foundation of your character's
move sets and skills, do the same maps over and over again and you finally do some quest to get transformation.
(You're very likely to play by yourself until level 60)

Now level 40-60, you've learnt how to kill mobs in a few clicks of the mouse and bosses are re-models of every
single mob you see and they're either bigger or have different colours.

The real challenge lies in raiding, like any MMORPG would lead you to. I LIED.

The real challenge is within the community.
Most of you would quit before level 30 realizing how boring grinding can be. Otherwise, allow yourself to be
introduced to the community, visit channel 1 for all the emotional dramas.

Embrace yourself to:
Poverty - buy some gold, buy some nx, empty your wallet and credit card, what is life? vindi is life.
Bragging - 400 titles! such is life, +15 level 80 items, majestic as osama bin laden. Bombing raid bosses with dem DEEPS.
Envy - What OP players have is what you want, what you want is what leads you to poverty.
Autism - Learn to deal with people that are autistic, you cannot learn from anywhere else better.
Cancer - What you get if you can't deal with autism.
Harrassment - Bad at something? Said something wrong? Did nothing? You get it no matter what you do.
Depression - What you get when you finished the game and realized how much time and money you've spent.
Anger - Proudly brought to you by Nexon, sponsored by pay2win players and trolls.

Back to raids, attack requirement boats, isolated from raid parties, no invites? Congraulations you have hit the
dead end of Vindictus.

At this point, it's time to pluck your money out of your wallet and shove it up Nexon's butt hole.

-Buy some AP
-Buy some gachapon boxes
-Buy some runes to enhance and enchant
-Buy some gold while you're at it, everyone knows you're poor

Level 60-85, you grind between repetitive dungeons and raid bosses in order to gear up and do new
contents. At this point, you should be asking yourself, what's the meaning of all this grind?

We all have fun in the games we play, we all want the strongest items in game and want to be known
for achieving and looking fabulous. If you don't think you've had enough of that, enjoy wasting more
time and money refining your character that'll eventually make yourself ask the same question above.

Otherwise congraulations, you've finished the game. Regrets... too late. Literally a dungeon's name that warned you
before Level 60 contents where you may resort to spending money.

10/10 recommending 12-16 year old players, autistic rustled jimmies and cancerous trolls.

Another peg in the belt of "Why would anyone play a nexon game?"

Game seemed fun gameplay-wise, but for some reason they decided to remove all gold value from items and missions for the first XX levels of the game, so as a new player you can't buy any gear, craft, buy potions, basically do anything. I guess they did it to fight gold farming bots, which doesn't seem to have done anything because I still saw gold spammers. All it did was make the bots change their farming strategy and make the new player experience awful.

TL;DR: Nexon doesn't care about their customers. Nexon doesn't care about making good games. Nexon cares about making money. Do not play Nexon games.

Great gameplay trapped inside a horrible game. If you value gameplay, then play it since it is very good, but everything else about the game is complete ♥♥♥♥. If your starting out get ready to have a ♥♥♥♥ ton of fun till the mid 20s then get ready to wait for the chance to ever group within any else till 60s for the raids, as they community is not very active between those two spots. If you can make it to 60 get ready to die a lot and do nothing in the raids till you get decent equipment from doing them a lot. But if you can make it up there and get decent equipment then the game becames a ♥♥♥♥ ton of fun as the raid bosses are a lot of fun with the gameplay and are the best part of the game. Having played since the orginal NA launch and seen the game evolve I can say that if you make it up there and beat all of the raid bosses and get good equipment, get ready to wait several monthes for them to add anything new. Also you WILL buy virtual underwear eventually since the ingame default is horrible and seeing everyone else without them makes you feel terrible.

At the beginning, this game was really good and I had a lot of fun with it. The publisher has the same mentality as the guys over at Continent of the 9th, they give no ♥♥♥♥♥ about there fanbase. I have gone into the forums and complained about the server instability issues, hackers plagued this game back in the day, dunno if it's still apparent. Knowing the publisher, probably is. I promise this wont be a story book to read. Pay 2 win cash shop, mixed with server issues and no communication from publisher to consumer. This game is actually really fun, but lacks on so much. Blade and Soul is so much better then this, both on cash shop and servers. Nexon, just go under financially and go away, stop ruining these games.

The game itself is fun.

But the servers have been extremely unstable for the past month; constant dcs, raids not giving loot, stuff like that. And Nexon tends to be bad at running games well anyway.

I don't know how Nexon keeps getting good games, then running them so poorly.

I played Vindictus during the lvl 60 cap, got to lvl 58 then my account got hacked,
all valuables stripped. Should have been a no problem since NEXON would help right?
♥♥♥♥ing wrong, NEXON didn't do ♥♥♥♥. I submited 2 tickets and kept track for 2 ♥♥♥♥ing
years checking every week, I had a ♥♥♥♥ing calender to mark when to check.

♥♥♥♥ this game and ♥♥♥♥ NEXON. -∞/10

great game. keeps up to date. still makes new classes, and keeps others update to date as well.

but, even with 60+ fps you'll lag at max graphics. and its not your internet connections fault.
though lets face it this review will be ignored, and you'll go ahead and get the game.

gotta make d'em ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ bounce.

-This is from a non-subscriber point of view-

I can agree with what most other are saying about the title. Overall, It's very fun and engaging. It allows you to have a sense of acomplishment and excitement about your character throughout the initial stages of the game. The content is very interesting if you read the dialogue, and I believe it can appleal to fast pace action fans and rpg fans alike. However, in my opinion, from lvl 30 and on is where you begin to realise your character is starting to buckle.
I myself, as a non paying player, followed several online guides related to my class in order to obtain the "optimal" skill levels and gear necessary for comfortable to advanced gameplay. Getting as close to these recommendations as possible, I continued to progress my character. After breezing through the first couple of chapters being able to solo all of the content on "hard" difficulty, I found it more and more necessary to have others in your party to be able to make any progress through higher tiers of content. This is completely understandable for "Raid" and other missions requiring exceptional damage output. However, the fact that I am not able to gear my character appropriately with that stats on the gear that I can OPENLY obtain, makes it extremely difficult to be of any significant value to other players who have donated personal funds to advance their character as such. Therefore, I feel it's going to take more than an average "casually serious" player, to be able to have any inforcing role in true end-game content. My positive recommendation would be for any player not wanting to progress seriously, or any willing to pay for a more serious, exciting end game experience. Simple as that. It's true, there are elitist jerks in the community who want to demoralize you and make you feel like less of a person through a video game. This can be said with any MMO ever released, but it's your game that this company released for free for YOU. You should be able to play it the way YOU want to. However, unless you are able to pay a premium, you will never live up to the expectation of your fellow gamer. It's very sad that a gaming community has come to this, but what can we do as players?
That being said, I will continue to play the game FOR FREE and document my experiences and how I am able to proess as a casual, non-paying player.
Cheers!

I just don't like it. I have tried it two different times now.
I love hack n' slash games. But this is just far too confusing for me.
The endless menus, short linear 'dungeons'. I think the anime art is lost on me too. I just am not that into it.
Its to bad too, it sure looks nice.
