The game's good, but pretty rough on people that choose not to spend any money. Some tips:
1.) Finish the first Saga and get a free Pegasus pet. It has an aoe summon attack that cures poison.
2.) Make a human first and that way you'll get a free elf and giant from talking to the elf and giant leaders and aligning with them (you can change alignment once per day).
3.) Events usually give you cash shop items so be sure to bank in on those.

This is probably my third time posting a review for the same game, and at this point, I lost interest in this MMO. My stuff in Mari is going to be left there, and I'm probably going back in a year or so to see how things are checking up. But at this point.. just don't.

I've played the game at an odd rate. I've played in the Closed Beta as a kid, in which I never really gotten into the game, then the first time I joined Steam (which was around 2012), then last year, and now, this year. I've had my share of "what did I miss?" moments here and there, and now, the game is starting to grow a bit sour, and based on Nexon's tactics, it's going to go nowhere.

  • Very broad gameplay. While there is a focus in the combat, there is more to it than just, "kill everything and report to me."
  • No real class system. This allows for hybrid builds to be viable in most cases.
  • No level cap, so you can just swim in rebirths and get AP fast.
  • Frequent updates and events.
  • The talent system increases the rate of which you begin to level skills for a specific trait, which is quite neat.
  • Their exchange rate is there for countries outside of the US from what I've heard from their news.
  • For an RPG, the combat is solid.

  • Nexon. Known for their pricey cash shops, Pay-to-Win setups, and their non-existant American/European customer support; this game is no exception to this rule. It pretty much makes EA a saint compared to Nexon.
  • Any new skills added later into the game will be better than nine out of ten of the old skills. No matter how many revamps there are, it will in many cases, be better.
  • You can go pretty fast in the game. Is it bad? Not really, but it's not good for those looking for a game that'll last.
  • The game is punishing (and not in a good way) in its newer content. The old content is just fine.
  • Extremely lag sensitive. If your connection isn't stable, then expect yourself to get killed by these drops in connection. Mileage may vary from holder to holder.
  • AI is questionable. New updates don't apply to the old enemies, so they're petty against everyone else that follows the trend.
  • New Beginnings just slapped old players across the face. New accounts receive six cards in comparision to the old accounts, where they had just one. Veterans, after a looong while, now receive the same benefits from New Beginnings. It doesn't make much of a difference if a veteran blew off about $10-25 on one character card.
  • Clothes > Armor by a landslide. If there was a trade off, then it wouldn't be an issue, but here, it's all about the accessories. Forgot about heavy armor benefits that occur from Rank 9 and onward. You can just disregard this point.
  • Twin swords dominate the melee field. Basically, there isn't much trade-off other than a lower defense that can be easily blocked off by a fast attack speed.
  • Inconsistent textures and modeling. Some models look really dated, and others look pretty neat.
  • Shakey optimization for lackluster graphics due to a very dated engine. It can sometimes run like butter, but in many places, it is worse than Batman: Arkham Knight's PC port, and that was really bad. Mileage varies from holder to holder. That's not to say that you should still be wary of optimization in here.
  • Hacking is easy and dominant in some channels.
  • Lack of support on newer Operating Systems. Point will be taken down if it supports Windows 10.
  • Newbies get stomped on hard without money they don't make for themselves.
  • Crossovers. They make no sense most of the time, and this game is no exception to this rule.

Verdict: Above average MMO shrouded in poor customer support and lackluster balancing.
I don't know much about this game, but the game is starting to crumble down. No matter what updates happen, whether it be new content or new mechanics, the customer support and the many cons that I've listed above will weigh it down until it can pull itself together again. Will it be fixed? Probably not, but my two BK cards from Bing rewards could've had a better time in another game.

You can get a stronger (and most definitely a more experienced) review from Trigger, an ex-fan who couldn't stand the game and Nexon anymore after many years. His review can be found either here (link) or as the second most helpful review as of this post. While his may seem very negative by blowing things out of the water more than it needs to be, he makes strong points, especially for being a long-term player.

EDIT #1: Well, Trigger just commented here to correct and add a few details on my review, so I changed it up based on the information he provided. I also changed a bit of text.

EDIT #2: Specified a bit more on a con and updated a bit of text. Also fixed up a claim that was deemed to be false.

EDIT #3: Revoked some cons that related to hardware.

The game can be stale at times, but last night just made me want to write a review. It's because of night's like those that I still play the game.

So I'm just minding my own business, I see a party ad for a title someone wants to buy that I happen to own. Well, I note them, we agree on the sale and whatnot. Well, they then proceeded to invite me to run Lord missions with them. The entire time we're just having laughs and fun. A person who was there was beating enemies with his hammer and pickaxe. At some point he realized he could use the new skill, "Bash," with an umbrella, and well. I pulled out my american flag umbrella and brought democracy to all of Erinn that night. LMAO.

After that, we went on to do caravan trading, better known as commercing. We just talked and goofed off the entire time. We finally travelled all across Uladh, from Tara to Bangor, and just hung out in front of the trading tent. It was grand.

Now these were TOTAL strangers. People I'd never played with/talked to before. I've been playing since G1, and I'll tell you, this game is THE BEST when you play with some good folks.

I didn't add them, but I know if I see them again, I'll be more than happy to greet them. GOOD TIMES GOOD LIFE. MABINOGI DA BEST WOOTZ.

This is one of the best games I have ever played, I could sing its praises for days.

However, If you're using windows 10, the game is behaving like a virus. The game never launches, and then the process sits in your task manager taking up a large amount of resources. If you try manually ending the process, access is denied.

If you have windows 10, DO NOT DOWNLOAD. There is no excluse for this, Nexon.
