Trained by the finest in the world. Enchanted by the chaos of the battlefield. Captivated by the deaths of her foes. The wait is finally over, as the lovely lady of the land has arrives to the battlefield, Bastard Sword in hand. Face the Fomor horde with Vindictus' newest mercenary, Delia!

Delia, Nobility's Finest Daughter
https://youtu.be/o_vcBOZs5gU

Delia wields a two-handed Bastard Sword, a heavy blade whose size is only exceeded by Hurk's massive Greatsword. The young princess has been trained to use the full length of the blade with each swing, using her momentum to plow through her foes. But don't think all she can do is hack and slash her way to victory; Delia has a wealth of special moves and powerful combos to leave her enemies in pieces.

Combos and Standard Attacks


Vindictus' classic Combo style forms the backbone to Delia's offense, using a series of Normal strikes and Smash attacks to devastate her foes.

Special Attacks


After building up SP by bisecting a few Fomors, Delia can unleash powerful attacks bound to the quick slots or through the SP Skill button. Each ability has its own use, and taking advantage of every one will be a key towards victory.

Coming Soon: Delia



Trained by the finest in the world. Enchanted by the chaos of the battlefield. Captivated by the deaths of her foes. When the stars align on Thursday, July 14th, nobility's finest daughter will finally arrive to the world of Vindictus. Get a sneak preview of her abilities below and claim your Delia Coronation Pack today!

Meet Delia, Nobility's Finest
https://youtu.be/o_vcBOZs5gU
Delia wields a two-handed Bastard Sword, a heavy blade whose size is only exceeded by Hurk's massive Greatswords. The young princess has been trained to use the full length of the blade with each swing, using her momentum to plow through her foes.



Vindictus' classic Combo style forms the backbone to Delia's offense. She uses Normal attacks to disrupt her foes, using the long blade to cleave through the enemy horde, and then transitions into a Smash attack to send them flying with a massive blow. Her Rising and Falling Comet Smashes form the pinnacle of her style. After three Normal attacks and a Smash, Delia can either immediately carve an arc before her with the Rising Comet Smash, or wait for a moment, get in position and bring her massive sword down with the powerful Falling Comet.



Delia is not without some special attacks, however. After building up SP by bisecting a few Fomors, Delia can unleash powerful attacks, including Ion Thrust's quick thrust forward, rushing forward and driving her sword through the fools before her, or Full Moon, where Delia dances through her foes, the Bastard Sword carving open her path before finishing with one massive swing.



Delia's most unique ability is Zenith. Summoning the vast power granted to her, she can explode with power to boost her strength to its limit. As Delia becomes a true juggernaut of power, each swing will hit harder, her skin will become as hard as diamond and her sword will move faster than ever before! The only downside is that the spell has a habit of sundering her own armor, leaving her weakened once the spell fades.

New Outfits

About This Game

A malevolent force shrouds the land and monsters terrorize the last bastions of humanity. All seems lost and yet one hope remains: you.

Take control of a mighty mercenary and leap into the heart of one of the most action-packed MMORPG experiences available. Master the art of combat as you utilize brutal combos, devastating magic and the environment itself to wreak destruction on your foes.

This is unlike any MMORPG you've experienced before. This is Vindictus.

Key features:

  • Brutal Combat – Experience a complex and fast-paced combat system that raises the bar for the MMO genre. There are dozens of combos to learn and spells to cast, and mastering them is the key to survival.
  • Avatar of War – Choose from nine distinct characters, including hulking behemoth Karok and exiled princess Lynn. Each has their own set of skills, exclusive armor and a unique personality. Learn their strengths and weaknesses to conquer your foes.
  • Forged in Blood – The monsters of Vindictus are some of the most fearsome you will ever face, so massive they blot out the sun. The greater the beast, the tougher the challenge, and the greater the rewards.
  • Brothers in Arms – Some horrors are too terrible to be faced alone. Team up with friends, form a clan, and take on Vindictus’ mighty raid bosses. Coordination is key, and only the strongest will survive…
  • Visual Assault – With higher fidelity than nearly every other MMO on the market, Vindictus boasts highly-detailed characters and monsters, explosive particle effects and massive battle arenas.

Well, I figured I give this game a go because it is f2p but the bugginess of the game is way to much for me handle. Until I find out from a reliable source that the game developers fixed this issue then I will have no issue redownloading the game and giving it another try.

I like to play games that are actually playable.

The problem being that the game REFUSES all display options aside from its own fullscreen. The solution of asking the community got a response of, "noone cares, go away" on one server, and 3 others which were highly populated got no response at all. the in game content is expensive as all hell if you want to buy anything, and the forced parties after lv70 break it for me. the development progresses into dirt, the community SUCKS, the players SUCK. POS GAME!

I played this game because this is as close to Berserk as you can get... Until Berserk Warriors comes out...hopefully. This game with it's overall art style and playable characters (as well as some NPC's) remind you of the series characters. Karok reminds me of Pippin, Lann is Griffith, Fiona is Casca, And Hurk is practically freaking Guts. Even the NPC's, besides their lack of appearance, their general attitude resembles characters in Berserk as well. Gallagher is just like Corkus, And Gwynn's shift in attitude and leadership towards the Royal Army reminds me of Farnese. But the real reason why this game is good and why it's somewhat not so great is because of this...

Pros:
- Beautiful graphics in which you can change it's settings to optimize with your computer's performance.
- Easy Keyboard controls
- Flawless fighting styles
- Create your character's appearance
- Awesome and Intimidating Bosses (Even a Slooty Succubus Boss)
- Artwork for NPC's are nicely designed
- Good story (somewhat)

Cons:
- Repetitive Quests
- Dungeon Maps get boring after going through it several times. (VERY LINEAR)
- Very few selections of Armor and Weapons based on your level and class
- Gallagher is a piece of ♥♥♥♥


Other than that the game is worth playing if you like MMO hack and slash. There are times where you get bored and stop playing for a while and get right back in when the mood is set. Try it and see if it's your cup of tea.

It's good, but honestly the community is dead. I've sunk a total of 1k hours, ( Vindictus wasn't attatched to my steam account for a couple years) been playing since closed beta.

Pros:
The combat system is unbeatable for physics based combat.
You can look hot af, and make money in the market if you learn how to grind in certain zones.
It is possible to solo almost everything.

Cons:

End game, weapon +15 enhance gambling is cancer. This is where you'll end up spending hella money. Imo you only need +10 anyways, which is possible without purchaing things.

Content gets borring and repetitive fast, once you hit late game, there's only so many times you can do daiy raids before you have to haitus the game till next content update, which is like on a quarterly basis in a year.


Despite the scathing remarks I have about it though, I reccomend anyone who ike dynamic combat systems and nice graphics to give this game a shot, its pretty damn good.

A very long review incoming, you have been warned... (no TL;DR, no potato either.

Been playing for at least 3 years now (have more hours outside Steam, about 8,000+) and this is what I have to say about the game:

Pros: -Great Combat System
-Can get basically everything for free in-game (mostly pay for cosmetics and the like)
-Can still be able to look good without paying for cosmetics (no seriously, don't be tempted to buy Nx, u get rewarded with cosmetic coupons upon reaching certain levels and from some events)
-Awesome looking armor sets at higher levels
-Able to solo almost everything
-Uses the party's host connection for boats/raids (Uses game server for the 24-man raids)
-Boob Physics, like, lots of boob physics
-Holy ♥♥♥♥, I can see your panti- *gets slapped*
-Oh, and Iset + Succubus Queen (10/10 would stay to watch the cutscenes)

Cons: -Cash Shop a tad bit overpriced
-Publisher is Nexon :/
-Free option at character customization screen is meh (it has a boob slider tho :D)
-Can get boring/repetitive (might wanna bring some friends)
-Party has a bad host (host connection is low/too laggy)? You'll have a bad time
-Heavily Instanced
-Attempting to +15 your equipment (or enchant them) can be... quite tedious
-A lot of grinding at higher levels
-Damn you Ferghus!!!!
-Screw you too Brynn :c
-Nexon wtf, fix your sht (no really Nexon, we need better servers and for you to optimize your game)

-Game/Server Crashes


Great game, would recommend to those intrigued to try it out and see how you like it, you might enjoy it like me, if you can get past the heavy instancing, immense grinding/farming for materials, and Nexon itself :P

And if you're looking for a rating, guess I'll give it a 8/10 (10/10 for the boobs and would blow up their weapon again)

Update #1: I've been looking at other reviews for Vindi and seeing lots of ppl with problems. If you're having start-up problems: don't run using steam, instead download the nexon launcher and run from there (copy the files instead of redownloading)

Update #2: For those saying stuff like "camera changes when attacking", there's a reason it's called "True Action Combat". Still confused? Means you're supposed to constantly have control over your camera; don't just attack and allow your FoV change.

Update #3: Friends/Social list is bugged, so currently only way to add someone in-game is to right-click on their character or name in chat.

Helpful tip #1: Able to launch on Steam but having problems connecting to the server or something? Use -tcp in the launch option.

Helpful tip #2: I'd recommend using the Nexon launcher to run this game rather than from Steam, trust me on this.

Friendly tip #1: The game isn't yet optimized for Windows 10, details have been posted on the game's official site.

Need any questions to be answered? Feel free to pm me, though I might not be able to answer some questions as I've only have been playing since Arisha's release (a few years ago) and not from the beta like most veterans.

I really enjoyed the time that I put in on this game. It was the first MMORPG that I ever played. The armors and weapons are all very unique and cool. The character customization was fantastic, especially considering that there are set classes. They do a wonderful job of separating veteran players from newbies.

Definitely worth a try.

Let me just start by saying this is my favorite mmo. I've been playing Vindictus for almost 2 years and, despite having left a few times to try out other mmos (including the newer ones), I still can't find anything else like it.

Gameplay
Out of all the other mmos I've played, I'd say Vindictus has the most entertaining and gratifying gameplay there is. Although it's not open world, it's easy enough to enter dungeons and raids via the dock without having to wait too long for other players to join. On the battlefield, you can dish out some pretty devastating combos, which look just as cool as they are powerful. Each class plays differently, so I'd recommend trying them out to get a feel for which one suits you best. Also, there isn't a trade system; if you want to trade with someone, you'll have to organize the details with them and send it through the mail. There's a marketplace too, if "trading" sounds like too much of a hassle, but some items may be way overpriced depending on if they're in high demand.

Classes
There are a total of 11 classes right now: 5 males and 6 females (yes, they are gender locked). Lately, it seems like they've been adding classes more frequently, so I think it's safe to say that we'll be expecting to see more in the future.

Community
This is probably the best community I've been a part of in any game. The majority of people are quite friendly and willing to assist; I've met some pretty cool people there just by doing missions. In town, depending on what channel you're on, you may see a group of players dancing in their undies - that's normal. Basically, everyone just wants to have fun :)

Other Thoughts
I see the question "Is Vindictus dead?" being asked a lot, and I'd say it's far from it. Sure, the community has gotten smaller because some players decided to play the newer mmos, but there's still quite a good amount of people left in Vindictus. With all of the events and updates going on, it seems like Vindictus has really been stepping up their game against the competition lately. I believe that in doing so, it'll bring more people back to the game, as well as attract new players. To be honest, there have been a handful of times that I "quit" the game for long periods, but there's always something that brings me back; in this case, it was the Delia update (she's awesome, by the way), so I'll probably be addicted to this game for a while...again.

Played the game for a bit, then logged in after a few days of not playing to get a message saying my account has been permanently banned. Didn't do anything, Nexon support didn't help. Don't play this if you want to get to a level higher than 9.

On the bright side, combat is fun, character models are great. Obligatory jiggle physics (which sometimes causes clipping with some inner armors).

Then again, 90% of the customization is locked off through a paywall. I suppose that isn't too bad since it's just cosmetic, but I'm that kinda person that loves customization so having that stuff locked off is a real killer.
