About This Game

The Continent of the Ninth Seal (C9) is an action MORPG. Players take part in the game as heroes of Glenheim to stand against Nefer, an evil villain trying to open a gate to the Netherworld and swarm the land with his infernal legion. C9 showcases quality visuals, strategic combat, and a gripping story. Choose a character that best represents how you want to experience the game. The four base classes -- Fighter, Hunter, Shaman, and Witchblade -- can each upgrade into multiple advanced classes, all of which are unique in their skills, visuals, and play styles. The console-like controls, various skill combos, and RPG-based elements, make C9 a satisfying choice for all fans of action games.

Key Features:

  • Unrivaled Action RPG

    The Continent of the Ninth Seal is a wholly unique action MORPG experience. With its non-targeting combat, you no longer have to suffer with “locking on” to a single enemy! C9 gives you the freedom to lay waste to any enemy foolish enough to get in range of your sweeping weapons. This unique system has earned C9 five awards, including Grand Game Award Korea in 2009.
  • Various Skill Combos

    Enjoy the complete freedom of combining skills and commands with cancellations and evasions to create an almost unlimited number of combos. Chain your attacks together and see just how much damage you can do in a single frenzy of attacks! Hack through every enemy that gets in your way!
  • Precise Controls

    C9 features precise, customizable controls using either a mouse and keyboard or a gamepad. Unlike other RPGs, the way you control your character determines whether or not you survive! No more pushing the same four buttons over and over in a tedious rotation. Your hands will never be at rest during combat. With enough skill and practice, you can learn how to juggle and control your enemies with such precision they never have the chance to fight back!
  • PvP

    Player versus player is a core element of C9. Players can use the combos they have perfected in various PvP modes. Use your skills with just the right timing, and chain your combos together perfectly to secure your victory!
  • Ultimate Fury Skills

    Ultimate Fury Skills are the most powerful skills a player can learn. These skills boast supreme damage with very impressive visual effects. Each advanced class has its own, unique ultimate fury skill.
  • Diverse Content

    C9 allows you to enhance items, build guild housing, craft items, and remodel equipment; very popular features to players of online RPGs. The game also features a unique Legend system to display your in-game achievements to other players and express the personality of your character.

I play this game once about 6 months or so. The core of the game--the combat and level design--is amazing, but the questing is far too repetitive. At least it's not pay to win, at least not from what I've seen so far, and my character is about mid to low level.

As I said before, while this game is a huge grind as an mmo--expect to do the same dungeons at least 10 times each at some points--the combat is where it shines. It's very fast-paced and tight, and while there are a plethora of action mmos populating the market, I always come back to this game because there's nothing quite like it. In my eyes, it's perfect. I enjoy how difficult the combat in this game is, too, even in PvE, and especially if you choose a class that's combo-reliant and fragile like Slayer or Shadow. And there are 21 unique classes with unique playstyles, and they release a new class every few months.

If you like action mmos and don't mind that C9 is instance-based, I'd recommend giving this game a try, at least until level 15 when you choose your class. You might be able to tolerate the grind more than I have.

In over 20 years of beta testing videogames I have to say that the character creation in this game is absolutely outstanding. The fact that you can create your own combos of skills is unheard of in the majority of the MMOs out there. I will explain... I play a taoist which is one of the advanced classes from the shaman tree. The taoist has several types of attacks, charges, ground attacks, AOEs etc. you can mix and match these types of attacks into any combo you want to. Gone is the WoW type of best DPS rotation gameplay and instead you can create your own combination of moves based on what kind of attacks you want in your rotation in what order. I definately reccomend this game for people that like combat oriented MMOs and don't want to be forced into one kind of skill rotation.

I decided to give it a go despite the fact that if you set the reviews to "recent" you'll see nothing but a see of don't recommends.

There is some securtiy program attached to the game whereby it'll close it down if it detects a "suspicious program". I've tried multiple times to get this running by closing down things that I would rather have running but I wouldn't determine as being essential (including not having steam open which works for some), however, this was to no avail.

From my googling it seems that maybe if you uninstall your antivirus then that may be the solution, but to me that 100% unacceptable.

Whilst I get that people that bot or hack are incredibly annoying (and I'd hope this program sucessfully filters them out or it's entirely pointless to have) if you're going to implement a security system then it really should be designed to be far more accurate and not some sort of blanket, is there anything at all running on your computer, well no, you can't play - which is what it appears.

So yeah, whilst I'm sure some people will get this working, I presume depending on the anti-virus you use (or if you use one at all) and other factors, I really wouldn't waste any bandwidth on it, which is a shame because I've enjoyed similar games like dragon nest (and and never had a problem with any of them despite having played most of them around).

I downloaded the game via Steam but when I attempt to login and play the game claims I already have an account (which I don't). When I attempt to recover my account using the online utilities, their own site claims that I do not have an account. I then tried to submit a help ticket, but can't because you have to be logged in to submit one. Basically they have all the angles covered to prevent me from playing their game.

tl;dr can't create account, can't access existing account, can't submit help ticket, can't play

I think it's about time to write a review of C9 since I've been playing it for nearly 2 years.

What is C9?

C9, or Continent of the Ninth Seal is an MMORPG run by Webzen. C9 has a heavy focus on PVP, which features an innovative combo system, and a gameplay which requires precision and timing.
PVE wise C9 has instance style dungeons that can be accessed from towns.
If you are looking for an action MMO, then C9 could be your perfect choice.

There are however some issues, which could ruin your overall experience:
- Webzen does not care its' customers. If you get scammed or hacked they won't help.
- The game servers are lagging, and the peer2peer system can be abused in PVP.

These two things you must keep in mind if you decide to play this, otherwise great game.
So let's see the PROS and CONS now in short.

- Innovative combat system. This game is NOT a point-n-click RPG, you need to do all the action yourself, much like in a hack-n-slash game, like DMC for example.
- 5 base classes, which divided to over 20 subclasses. All with their unique gameplay, as well as strenghts and weaknesses.
- Game is well optimized. It will run well on a weaker PC too.
- Easy to learn, hard to master.

- Webzen. They are basicly the tumor of this game. If C9 would be run by another company, it would be way better.
- Slow bug fixes, and recent updates are breaking the game balance, adding straight broken classes and pay2win items.
- Horrible community.

So the verdict:
If you are a casual player, then this game might turn you away for the reasons mentioned above. But if you are willing to invest enough time and effort, and maybe money then C9 is just the game for you, since it's a lot of fun once you get better with your class.......and the game doesn't lag, that is.

Ignore my shown play time, I always play on the non-Steam version. I've found that online games, and Steam don't tend to mix that well often enough, so use the non-Steam version whenever possible, and suggest that others do the same.

Basics about the game:
C9 is a PvE centric (not massively) multiplayer online brawler/hack n' slash, with RPG mechanics like character and skill leveling, equipment, crafting, guilds, and loot to gather. You can largely play it just fine solo, but it can be more fun when playing with up to three of your friends. The controls are solid, and the action is fast, so if this is the kind of game you're into, it can be a lot of fun.

This is one of those games with a town hub, and instanced dungeons like others of this genre (Dungeon Fighter Online, Rusty Hearts, Dragon Nest, etc..). Major game zones are split up into continents, and as of the time of this review up to the first half of the sixth continent has been released. The level cap increases as more zones are added, then the difficulty of the mobs, and number of mechanics at work you need to make use of increases the further along you go.

One warning is that it's a peer to peer game published to a global area (bad combination), so if you play with others, it's best to stick with people that at least live in the same continent as you. If you join up with anyone, and they're on the other side of the planet or such, the latency/lag could be pretty bad.

----Extra info on common questions, and discussions.----

If it's a PvE game, why are others swearing that it's a PvP game?:
Why people try to claim C9 is a PvP game, is completely beyond me. Here's the thing, you level up through PvE, get equipment through PvE, and the game is always trying to send you into dungeons to fight mobs, which is PvE. Everything in the game, including the PvP, and PvP related things by extension, requires you to do PvE, as your levels and equipment from PvE, carry over to PvP. In C9, PvP is really just an optional side activity for the sake of bragging rights, and can easily be completely ignored. If you don't like the PvE in C9, or in games on a whole, don't even bother downloading C9, as PvE is completely unavoidable.

I've seen various people complaining non-stop about everything under the sun relating to this game, or other similar games, and more often than not, they're the people trying play a PvE game, just for the PvP. If asked why they think it's a PvP game, they will say things like "because it is," or talk about how much they like the combat compare to other games, which is the same basic combat as in PvE. It just feels like they made a mistake in playing a PvE game for the PvP, but refuse to acknowledge their error, so blame the game, the publisher, the developer, and anything else they can think of instead. If you want to play a game for its PvP, it really should have a strong focus on PvP at a design level, such as seen in the various PvP arena games, or online CCGs, C9 certainly doesn't have such a focus.

Is it pay to win?:
Short answer, no. The long answer is that any free to play game, and even various buy to play, or pay to play games will sell pay advantages, so the important thing is the degree of pay advantage available. In C9 the worst are likely a base necklace that can be used to make various rather strong ones that has a very low chance of showing up in a random box, then souls and auspice that provide bonuses to various stats. None of the advantages offered though are so large that you can't get by without them, they just make things easier, or faster really.

Does it have a stamina system?:
Yes, but unless you for instance spend all day playing, or hammer through dungeons you're over powered for as fast as you can, you likely won't run out of stamina. Then even if you do, with twelve character slots, you could always play another character.

I've heard people say Webzen (the publisher) really sucks:
For basically any foreign developed game that has been released for a while, you'll pretty much always see some people go on about how its publisher is supposedly the worst one out there. The ones saying how bad Webzen supposedly is are also generally the people trying to play it just for the PvP, which as I mentioned in the PvP note, doesn't work out well. Then some people will complain about anything really, no matter how crazy it may be. Seen people complain about how the free stuff you get just for logging in was supposedly not enough, or even too much. Welcome to the Internet.

Webzen keeps updating the game with new content, has a continual flow of in-game events, cash shop items are decently priced, with no clear pay to win, they seem to be trying to listen and talk to players reasonably well as of late, and the rate they get back to tickets has picked up from what it used to be. Before 2014, I'd have said aside from poor communication, they're pretty good compare to others, now even that's not half bad.

A good game, with some rather... Unfortunate technical issues.

Now, I tried to get this game to work, honestly; on three separate installs, several times validating files through both steam and the launcher (which always seem to get at least a 1GB worth of files that fail to validate and must be re-downloaded).
The game has constant "Server connection lost" issues, as well as random crashes. Especially once you get to the 4th continent and are already invested in it - both time-wise as well as just loving the gameplay of it. Possibly also money-wise, if you bought cash.

Most of my time played is from a time before the game was available on Steam. I played a few (very brief) stages recently and found the game hasn't changed too much since then. My numerous uninstalls and reinstalls appear to have reset my time played.

I personally still cannot play the game due to the many technical issues. So take that as a warning.

Now, that said, this is a very entertaining game. The controls are nice and responsive, the character classes are varied and your success rate in combat is largely determined by your timing of skills and positioning, which is exactly what an action RPG needs.

Combat is what you'd expect; you try to chain your attacks, getting as high a combo as possible without getting hit. It's very satisfying to eliminate an entire group of enemies without letting your combo break or time out (which is rather quick).
In case you die, you are given five resurrection scrolls per day. It's worth noting that dying will reduce the durability of your gear, so unless you buy a (rather expansive) repair kit from a merchant (for in-game money), you might have some trouble with that.

The stages are instance-based; you pick up your quests at town, then go to the travel map and select stage, difficulty level, whether or not you allow random players to join in to help you and also whether or not you allow "intrusions".

Difficulty levels are pretty intuitive:
"Normal" is your basic enemies-are-one-hit-kills affair which you'll have to go to at least once for each mission. This serves as a chance to get a feel for the zone, as well as it's boss, more than anything.
"Hard" is slightly harder, but you'll probably still find yourself slaughtering the enemies and not caring if you're hit.
"Expert" is slightly more fun; the enemies have enough hitpoints to survive a couple hits, and deal an almost-significent amount of damage.
"Master" is where the fun is really at. Enemies survive a decent number of hits (but they don't feel like spunges) while dishing out good damage (you'll survive a good couple hits yourself, even as a witchblade with no defensive equipment).
Stage difficulty decrees the quality of your reward at the end of the stage, and also the length of the stage; normal difficulty stages are extremely short, while master difficulty last a good few minutes.

I should mention the hell stages now. They are few, and represent the highest challenge in the game. Obviously intended for a party of players who know what they're doing. Think of them as the "raid" stages of C9, except you have a party of four so your personal impact is much larger.
These stages reward players with extremely powerful weapons and armor.

Intrusions are other players entering your stage as enemies, trying to kill you and then kill the final boss. In order to intrude one must speak with the master of intrusions NPC, pay a fee and then they can enter. You are informed when a player intrudes into your dungeon instance.
Intruders cannot use resurrection scrolls, but must instead re-enter through the master of intrusions NPC and pay the fee a second time.

Killing an intruder gives you a token. A certain number of tokens gets you a crate with some random loot. Killing a defending player while intruding also gives a token, which also grants a crate. Don't know what this one contains, because I didn't bother intruding too much.

For those of you who love PvP, and worry that the occasional intruder will not be enough to satisfy your bloodthirst, there are arenas and tournaments. I don't know how tournaments work, but the arena come in your standard 1v1, 2v2 and tag-team formats. There might be more formats by now, but due to the technical issues mentioned above I cannot check.

Classes are divided into arch-types; there's the hunter, the shaman, the witchblade and the warrior.
The warrior is your standard tank, the shaman can become multiple things (mage, healer or even close-range fighter) depending on their class advance, the witchblade is a fast-moving glass-cannon type that (as you'd expect from a glass-cannon) has little defence and lots of damage.
The hunter is the most powerful. Sorry, but it's true; switching to hunter from Witchblade felt like going from master difficulty to normal.

There is crafting, which is rather simple and not too exciting, but it gets the job done. It can be rather expansive at times, and you might be better off going into dungeons to get your equipment.
That said, alchemy is extremely important because shop-bought potions are terrible, and you will need healing going into Hell difficulty (and quite possibly against some of the high-level Master difficulty bosses).
You can only have one crafting profession on each character, so you'll want alts to pick up the less everyday crafts (weapons, armors) while your mains learn alchemy and cooking.

Speaking of alts, the base inventory capacity in C9 is extremely limited. If I had one complaint (other than the technical issues) it would be this. Inventory extension items are cheap, but if you don't feel like spending the money you can have your alts carry your spare crafting materials for you.
You have 12 character slots, so you don't need to worry about those.

Guild system, mail, auction house, friends list - all included. Probably worth mentioning that guilds can have actual buffs that affect their members, so being in a guild is very beneficial. Guilds also want as many members as they can get because each time a member completes a dungeon he earns his level in guild points - so it's a symbiotic win-win situation.
Guild halls are included as well, which guilds can add items to. Unlike most games, where those serve vanity alone, in C9 guild items also grant a certain buff to guild members.

Now would be a good time to mention the stamina system; yes, your usual "You played too much today, pay us money or you can't play anymore" system. The good news is that the amount of stamina you are given is so high, you can probably play for over four hours before it runs out, and you have weekly "reserve" stamina in case you need it.
I only ever used my reserve stamina on the first day of playing with a character (when stages are very brief). Never actually fully ran out of stamina.

Finally, I think it's time to talk about the cash system. Yes, there is a cash shop. Yes, you can literally buy power in it, among other things. The question is, "Is it a deal-breaker?"
For me, personally, no; the the game asks for only a small amount of cash as a one-time payment to get the (sane) maximum amount of power - about 20$. You can go overboard and enchant your gear, but there is no real reason to unless you want to compete in tournaments or go to Hell mode solo, and I'm not sure whether tournaments allow you to bring your own gear or not.
I have personally never bought anything, and found the game very enjoyable before the technical issues started. My main is a level 51 on a Punisher at the moment, though I have other characters.

Would I recommend C9? Yes and no. If you can get it to work without disconnections and crashes, this is a very fun game you can sink multiple hours into. If you can't... Then you can't, and there's nothing you can do about it.
So, give it a shot, if it works for you then you're a luckier man than I.

C9 is would in my opinion be one of the greatest mmorpgs ever,
with the really action based combat system, and pvp,
which is one of the main parts in this game.
It´s a free combat system, where you need to aim yourself
and not click and autofocus, like it is in most other mmos.
Compared to other mmos, this game doesn´t have open world pve,
all pve content is based on dungeons.
Also there are no real raids, or sth. like this,
since the max. amount of players in one group is 4.
But anyways, pve in my opinion still is fun, until max. lvl,
then there´s really missing some content.

But sadly webzen as the publisher ruined the game totally.
It became insane p2w over the years, in pve and pvp,
as well, there are many bugs, that aren´t fixed for months
and with nearly all ""events"" they do, they´re yust fooling their players.
Also the pvp system is to much dominated by lags and bugs,
which were often caused by the peer2peer system for pvp
and players from countries extreme far away from the serverregion,
like brasilian players on EU servers.

The game would be really good, if a company would publish it,
that respect their players and community.

Ok so the game is freaking awsome. The graphics, the armor, the costumes, the skills everything is really fun and addicting, but (there is always a but in a game) the game has some issues. As I said the looks and the skills, animations they look very nice and thats very good because most of the time you will be killing some mobs or other players. They're adding content new classes,levels,dungeons all sort of stuff. Ofcourse the game have some technical problems and in later levels when you want to upgrade your gear you may start thinking it's a bit P2W, but the game is awsome I have played over 1000 hours the steam hours say it incorectly because i downloaded it from the site a LONG time ago i played it for a very long time and i can give this 8/10 easily. If your going to download the game do it from the website, cuz steam doesnt work with c9 very good.

There is occasional lag, the game disconnects far too frequently, the customer support is not something to write home about, there are more bugs than fingers on my hands, the world chat is spammed with gold sellers and buyers, the fixes that are released often do not fix the major problems that everyone is complaining about, the character classes are broken with some vastly more powerful than others, there is plenty of grinding in some parts of the story, etc, etc.

So why am I still playing a game that is filled with this many issues and more? Quite frankly, it's addictive and I love it. The graphics may not be the best when compared to other games, but when ramped up to the max they still have the ability to amaze me especially when in new maps. Although, the character classes are often broken in terms of even-ness with some classes vastly outranking others in terms of pvp or even pve, I still love trying out new classes just to see what they are capable of. The character customisation is fairly decent (though some of the tattoos are pretty damn perverted) and bikini armour is prevalent amongst the female classes. The pvp arena is a good place for some great fighting provided your class is strong at pvp or you know what you're doing. Intrusion is a nice idea and adds some spice when grinding through quests. Though the game itself is free to play it does help just a bit if you put in some real money and not to mention you can outfit characters with some nice gear early on if you do. However, you don't have to and it's quite easy to level up to a high level without even inputting a single coin of real money into the game. Not to mention, the nice gears can be bought on the market quite easily once you have enough gold to do so which can often be gained through successful sales on the market. If you want to have fun in this game without using any real money at all I'd recommend getting the hang of the market early on as it makes life in C9 so much easier. ;)

Given the amount of issues this game has this game should suck. But for some reason I can't help but keep playing. O.o

C9 - "This game ruined my life, good thing I can resurrect myself in the C9"

Looking for insane action? good pvp, team vs team? Then you should download Continent of the Ninth Seal
My rating: 8.4/10

So lets take a look at pluses and minuses of the game:

+ Deep skills and commands system (Super armors, invisible frames, combos)
+ Good pvp, deathmatch, team vs team system.
+ A lot of cities and dungeons to explore.
+ 5 classes and a lot of subclasses to try.
+ Pretty good crafting and guild system.
+ No need to use real money to be equal to other players.


- Servers are pretty laggy.
- Quests are boring, killing and taking stuff. Only a few quests are interesting.
- Webzen (game hosts) aren't paying attention to C9 community needs and opinion
- They are making more and more cash shop items (pay to win)

In conclusion this game is really good and very competitive. And the best thing about this game is that you don't need to get the best items or boosts to be good at PvP or Deathmatch, it's all about skill. You can be like 15levels lower than your opponent, but you still can beat him up. Go and try it out!

First off, the playtime listed is false. The browser in steam closes after starting the actual game so the time tracked is not accurate. Now then, I have to say that this game suprised me in all the right ways. The combat is extremely satisfying and it provides a sufficient challenge at higher levels. The animations are quite good for a game of this style and melee combat is particularly satisfying. The story is moderately throwaway, but better than the absolute garbage ones of it's peers Dragons Nest and Vindictus. The game is more fluid than Vindictus and is generally more interesting than Dragons Nest, from Loot to Crafting. The major knocks I have against it are some choppy animations and buggy textures from time to time, and a slow start. All in all, if you generally like ARPGs, give it a shot, it's very good.

TLDR: Beat the ♥♥♥♥ out of a bunch of goblins in a Victorian Era Dress with a giant steampunk hammer.

Great game, guides you on rails. The best part about it isn't the story content anyway (though it is worth a read on the first playthrough), it's the combat. This is that God of War feel of slashing through entire armies! That's the initial appeal for the game, then you can get into PvP, and that's an entirely new fun element. There's lots of 'fresh' content, with events every 2 weeks or so. The only reason that I spent any cash on this game is because it is fun, and I was right in thinking that it would be more fun if I had more inventory room.

C9's Customer service is not very customer friendly.
Staffs are like 8 year old kids and less sympathetic to players.
All servers are from Asian, when they should be in Europe, America or Ocean.
I can not recommend this game for the faint hearted.
