About This Game

Mabinogi offers a robust, online universe where people can experience all facets of fantasy life, from fighting monsters to harvesting fresh produce in the world of Erinn. It provides a new experience with a variety of gameplay, unique combat system, and orderly time element and age components.

From the tapestry of lustrous stars stretched high overhead, Eweca casts a pale glow on a group of travelers huddled around a smoldering campfire, singing songs and dining on rich stew. They sing and feast until the bright fingers of dawn extend from the horizon to purge darkness from the land. Birds chirp from the nearby trees, and the dew on the grass begins to evaporate as the travelers don their packs and weapons and continue on the road to Tir Chonaill, the town by the mountains. Erinn is a land of wonder, danger, and unlimited opportunity.

although it says i have only 425 hours in this game that is far from the truth, i found this game on its website and then i went and found it on steam. Now although i love this game i will try to not be bias. so to begin, i will start the pros and then go to the cons
1.this game is massive, as of Thursday October 30, 2014. there is 16 generation story lines . then there is two episodic story lines , saga and iria, with iria on its 4th episode.
2. you can do almost anything in this game. I always ask people " tell me what you'd like to do in the game." and I normally get stuff like "trading, clothing crafting, black-smithing " and those exist , probably one of the only things you cant do is open pvp. you have to invite the person to a pvp battle and they have to accept it.
3. the graphic style, now this is both a pro and a con, i will talk about the pro part here, the good thing about the graphics is that they are rather simple. now not to say the game looks boring. the areas you can go are diverse and interesting. a winter mountain range full of giants, or a desert in a constant sandstorm with elves. or do you go to the lands of tera and tailliann, the front of the fight in g9
4. skill "tree". this game offer a interesting system for skills. it is free flowing. everything if offered to you at the start, there are a few that you have to unlock( like meteor, blizzard, and hydra transformation) or you have to be good in one skill set to unlock hidden skills. the beauty of the system is that you can always be doing stuff. i have one character that is level 2500 total and i have barely mastered any skill sets.
5. Combat, now combat is interesting because it truly matters on what skill set you choose to adopt. a battle mage or spell sword are going to fight completely differently from an archer or puppeteer. but the most basic combat is like a real time rock paper scissors where some skills trump others but are trumped by others. this makes you require a bit of strategy but also quick moves
6. events, there are always really fun and entertaining events, just last summer their was a big staged event that ended with an SAO event
1. camera control, now this is the biggest complaint I've gotten from people, the camera is not the easiest to control. you ether have to right click, or move you mouse to the side of the screen. now yes in combat it can be a bit annoying. but it just takes a getting used to, it takes a bit of pre-planning, like i said this is a pro and a con, now if you like the style and since its low in the graphics you can easily play it on low end pcs, but if you have a better one or don't like the art style, it will definitely be a turn off.
3. the openness, now i know a lot of people like the openness but most likely as a newbie will get so caught up will all the possible skills he will want to try to use all of them and be weaker than they need to fight enemies of there level. it takes a bit of discipline to focus on just one class.
4. pay-to-winness, now this may not be noticed by most people but since it is a free to play, there has to be some form of transactions. some of those include cool pets (like dragons) or gachapon that hold special items. these are used to get special items, these items can then be sold for gold to other players to make a profit. yes this does happen, yes there are people who have a whole quick slot full of dragons. but because of those people, everything can be acquired in game for gold. now it might annoy people that this is true but pay to win is not entirely true. it just depends what your term for "winning" i can honestly say I've probably spent 500+ on this game and that might sound crazy but for how many hours I've clocked i think its worth it

Okay, I'm gonna go straight to the point here. I love the concept that this game has. I think the fact that you can rebirth and master multiple skills instead of being restricted to one class is really cool. Being a music teacher, I also love how you can compose music on here using actual music theory. The in-game music is pretty awesome as well. One thing I don't like is how buggy the game is. The pathwaying for the game seems pretty sloppy, as I occasionally find myself glitching in the same spot when I try to talk forward (especially through the narrow hallways in the dungeons). I also invited some friends to play the game, and it seems like most of them have problems when they try to launch it (these people also have very capable computers, so I wouldn't call it a systematic problem). Another thing that really bothers me is the pop-up tip windows. I try disabling them, but it doesn't seem to work. It's tediously annoying to have to deal with that appearing in the middle of my screen during a fight.

Overall, I like this game. I think you'll enjoy it too, if you can work around the little annoying bugs and pop-up windows.

Good game. Bad Devs. It is fun with friends, It isnt very grind heavy except for skill leveling. Being a bard type character is great since you can make your own music scores, or find your favorite boss theme .midi files and making your very own music scores. This isnt a game for graphic ♥♥♥♥♥s, but if you want a game you can be casual or hardcore with friends this is a good game for that.

Comparing the cash shop to other games, Nexon is a little better in a 1:1,000 ratio as in 1 USD is 1,000 Nx. The gachapon system is complete ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ though, it may seem tempting but the chances of getting something truly good is all based on RNG or simply how lucky you are. Though costumes and dyes are fair enough prices. a full costume that is on sale for the month of event comes in a all in one package, usually no more than 15 USD. and pets never going over 18 USD as far as i have seen in my years of playing. Best still is they are all unlimited, and never disappear. Pets however do only stay summoned for a set amount of time until the daily renewal.

I'm not going to say don't spend money cause thats the players choice. When i first starte dplaying when i spent money i didn't feel regret, now in the past year or so i hate spending money on somehting i want for my character. Unlike other games i play like Warframe and Elsword.

All in all i would give this game a 8/10, since i still do come back to play it, and make music scores often.

This game is amazing! It's my favorite free game on Steam! When I first started playing I legit thought this was just like SAO! There's a lot of quests, skills to collect and fun limited events!!! The best part in the game is meeting new people and making new frineds in the game. Everyone is nice and it's fun to play with more people in Mabi!!!!

A very enjoyable game if you have a lot of time on your hands. Not as easy when you only have a couple of hours every week but still fun. I would like it better if it wasn't mostly focused on fighting, but it makes sense that it is in some ways. It's mostly a game to play if you have friends who play it however because most people tend to stick to groups they know but occasionally you find other people who are pretty cool and you become friends. Overall though it's a good game that has an interesting story and i won't forget about it for a long time to come.

I cannot recommend this game with a clear conscience. I simply can't.

I've spent a lot of time on this game. 2+ years on it. I don't even know how many hours. I lately came back to it after some odd months of not playing anymore, and was interested in some of the patches. And then I looked on the wiki about some of the new "character cards".

Ice Spear is a pain. Literally the worst. I've spent along time trying to get it. Ive spent every dollar to my name in game trying to get it, maintaining my character, working so long just to get this thing. And when I turn around, I realize that you can simply buy a character at 2000 total level with Ice spear level 3, AND Thunder level 3, AND Fireball level 3. All skills are a pain to get. A horrible pain. Like, I have spent WEEKS trying to get just one of these skills. Just one. Not even counting all the other skills that you get on this card for absolutely nothing, other than the base price of a simple 24 dollars.

I realize Nexon doesn't give a ♥♥♥♥. Everyone in game knows it. We all know they don't care. But I guess it wasn't until I realized how little they cared that it really hit me: I am worth 24 dollars to these people. Less, even; the amount of time needed to get everything on this card is almost double what I've done in 2 years. My entire investment in this game, worth 2+ years and well over 200 dollars on luxuries and stupid other stuff, is worth 24 dollars at the most. 24 real dollars for me, myself. Me. This is my price to Nexon, in exact change. 23 dollars and 90 cents.

I was speechless for a long time. And then the anger set in. That knife between my shoulders really smarts.

I am going to continue to play this game, because I feel like I have to. I enjoy the game and I've already put so much into it that stopping would be a horrible waste. But for the love of everything good that you hold dear to you, please do not spend money on this game, and please do not start to put time into it. Nexon does not value you and never will. The worst I can do to them for this betrayal against me and all the other customers that have been sinking time and real dollars into them is to write this review and never spend another dime on these capitalist scumbags ever again.

Don't play this game. If you haven't already, just don't. Won't take my word for it? Play for free for a while, and just ask around. Play their game; see for yourself how little Nexon cares, and ask yourself if these are the values that you want to support.

A once great game now nothing more than a black hole for your wallets bordom. Maginogi, coming on 9 years live, has seen better days with more activity. What can be said? Nexon, the publishing company for the devcat studio based in Souel, South Korea, has watch its hit game run into the ground.

Nexon is no better, letting employees abuse the job by ban hammering anyone they please or creating chaos without due consequence or respect. Before Danel Kim showed up with KNoxxr, the infamious CFO, VP to PR; Mabinogi held on to the top 5 list in IGNs best free to play, letting player customize thier "Fantasy Life" and giving them room to follow a path of their own choosing without talent trees to follow. Mabi once held a hybrid subscription, where you could play as much a you want but things like mainstream storylines and talking with your egos, was not premitted unless you paid the 15$ a month. Rebirths weren't free either.

So whats changed and does it get my seal?

First off lets look at events.
Events have always had something to remember them by in terms of unquieness. Now every three months there is a fishing event. Events now do not reward the player justly as it did 2-3 years ago. Events are also tuned a step above in terms of difficulty. So no matter what your doing some event that you just can't solo, and if you do; the reward never fits, ever.

RNG, or random number generator, is heavly used in Mabinogi, mainly with life skills. If you ever enchanted something, you know what I mean, if not this is how it works, mabi never has a 100% garuntee unless it involves quest items. Now normally 100% meant 100%. From experence, 100% isnt 100%. At times the RNG feels more broken then working within the bounds it was meant for. Even Will Saves don't always roll and check. That being said it doesn't seem like the game likes playing fair.

Lately Content seems exhusted from being crapped out every 6 months for huge lore updates. The latest Saga season feels rushed and doesn't even explain anything past the re washed Ruairi hates everyone and no one live a hapy life. Old content has now been nerfed. Honestly, I hate how g1-12 have been reduced, even noobs can take Glas on alone and win. Although I do get bragging rights for about 90% of my toons passing g3 before nerfdom, the nerf given is a bit extreme. Without a level cap, or an end game result, nerfing kinda felt pointless.

Leveling no longer require grinding. Before g17, players were capped at 100, requiring more exp to be gained between times. Level 30 for most was the start of grindy. Now players can level to 100 with no problem. With Mobs that carry the Ancient title, exp is increased greatly for those not label weak against you.

Combat, Loot and game Mechanics.
Ok, here I'll start with combat.
Starting off in G2, you could use the skills you obtained from vairous parts of Ulhaid, and make combos or useful ideas to down a somewhat OP mob. Now the combat engine features a no load, post-use cooldown. Effectivly making me feel weaker and using my skill with way more cumbersome use. Before you could use stradegy or have a unquie fighting style, where now is more number crunching to one hit everything.
Loot is for the most part off and on when it comes to getting that one thing. For one, Ancients used to drop items that normally you would find in Advance dungeons, Theater Missions, Shadow Missions, or quest items like Fireball shockwave thunder or Ice Spear. They now drop nothing. Mabinogi also has annoying times where the loot given for very hard mobs dont fit what so ever. Where trash drops better than average stuff where the boss drops trash.(Yes some do). And if your looking to farm gold from Mobs, do not bother. Your better off playing the market.
Game Mechaincs are the only thing that do make sense. If someone has a shield and is defending, no matter the skill the cannot be knocked back unless being charged. SOme mobs have certain restrictions when it comes to fighting them. However limited, mechanics still exist.

Community is dead.

Customer Support is really a bad joke now. Submit a ticket and get a response in a week, if your graced with good fortune. Everyone who answer a ticket is cryptic, ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ like, ♥♥♥♥♥♥ bag, or plain ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ and lazy. They treat you like ♥♥♥♥ and still expect you to be ok with it. GMs are now not allowed to make them selves public due to a bad day in Dunbarton. PR is not something Nexon is fond of assocating themselves with. Modders have even moved on, not to the 5 anti cheating systems now in place, but merely because Nexon will ban anyone for any reason no questions or refunds.

Cash shop.
It has its sales, it has good things. Mainly more for people who have nothing else to blow money on.

The same when it launched. Mabi uses an anime style of CGI. But no improvements have been made since. Same with Sound.

This is a game for those who once played it, I will never recommend a Nexon game, ever. Mabinogi is more for those who want nostagla. Otherwise, your in for a night of swearing.

I would have recommended this game if it were still alive with community members to play with. I do not, however, because it has outlived it's time. I'm not saying that anything is "Obsolete" or anything, but the community has broken up. I got into this game when the downfall kind of started, and I saw less and less people in the main areas every day. Now there is only a few handfuls of players that are still active. I would be one of them, if I were a social person.

I don't reccomend this game to solo players that like to work alone. There is a main quest that needs three people to complete it.

I do, however, reccomend it if you have a group of friends that is interested. But, overall, the experience wouldn't be the same without the community there.

Only play this game if you want an old styled RPG, and have some friends that want the same. It was good, and still would be if Nexon had kept promises and the community remained, but it has died off.

It's fun, really fun. But up to a certain point. It has way too many glitches for a game that Nexon needs to fix. They really don't pay attention to the game. Another problem would be the huge pay to win aspect of the game. Unless you can grind the grind, deal with not being the best or pay yourself, then go ahead. Be my guest. But the reason you'll be playing that game a month from your start will be just for friends, nothing more, nothing less.

Low quality game. Very unpolished. A game that doesn't let you modify the audio/graphics until you're already half an hour into the game is terrible coding. I would rather not have music blasting in my face for 30 minutes until I'm able to lower the volume settings.
