One of the greatest (if not the greatest) free mmorpg right now for several reasons imho. I will give you my pros and cons and keep in mind that this is an ANIME mmorpg , i know that not every1 likes animes but i love them and based on my experience i ll assume that to be in the pros category ! :)

PROS :

- It is FREE , you can become great without even spending a single euro/dollar !
- Anime graphics , well designed world and characters !
- New player friendly , anyone can learn all he needs to know from the in-game tutorials which are all implemented in the story-line and are presented at the proper time.
- Nice storyline that will keep you interested (if you are ever read missions and not skip them)
- Clever way to involve pets (named eidolons in the game) in the storyline and awesome system to get them gathering key fragments. (pets and mounts are different)
- A big variety of classes and the abillity to choose a subclass at later levels allows for many different playstyles and combinations !
- Fishing , digging and other extra stuff to keep you busy even when you think you are done leveling up (you ll never actually be :P ).
- Nice and friendly community, you can surely make a lot of in-game friends and have fun in the game !
- Quests offer an autopath for the monsters you have to slain or the things you have to find so you wont need to blindly search for them.


CONS :

- For those who skip missions it will be boring as it doesnt offer anything more in leveling up other than grind and more grind.
- There are not TOO many dungeons , you will have to repeat some of them at certain points which you may find tiring.
- Lags and glitches do exist but they are not unbearable , considering that the game is still young they shouldnt be a problem that will last for long.
- IF you decide to buy something with real money you need to know that things in the store are TOO expensive.
- Still in progress so the game still doesn't offer an ending at it's story line , it will be released at a later date.

RESULT :

As you can see : PROS >> CONS and overall this is a GREAT mmorpg that i strongly recommend to every single gamer out there , either you are a fan of mmorpgs or not ! It will keep you playing for hours and you will have a great time ! Awesome game , awesome kingdom ! :)

Aura Kingdom is a fantasy anime-style MMORPG that has the player take on the role of an 'Envoy of Gaia' - a human with abilities far exceeding those of all but other Envoys. Every player is given three Eidolons throughout the story, NPC companions each with their own unique set of abilities, stats, and even personality.

The gameplay of Aura Kingdom is fairly repetitive, with hundreds of kill __ of __ and gather __ of __ quests. There is also very little 'multiplayer' as far as MMOs go. One could potentially complete every quest alongside friends rather easily, but there is little merit to doing so other than the obvious social benefits. Armour grants you stats and costumes grant minor benefits and the visual appeal. While this somewhat stifles players' creativity in creating costumes from inexpensive armours, you will also never have to walk around in a barrel. Everything is stylish and fits someone's tastes.

The level cap set at 65 (correct me if I'm wrong) the grind to 40 goes smoothly enough, with quests being the best source of EXP around. Monsters grant players VERY little EXP, usually below .15% per.

Now here's the catch; this game can be quite addicting when played with friends, and there is always a fresh, shiny new set of armours and weapons waiting for you at every level milestone. Despite being an MMO, this game holds plenty of replayability to try out each class, skillsets, and offensive/defensive point spreads.

I would recommend this game to anyone looking for a casual game to goof around in with friends.

Disclaimer This game may contain panty shots. Select costumes with care.

Beautiful game, fast and easy to learn, with that said I'm just gonna throw some pros and cons:

Pros:
- If you're into anime stuff you will love this game.
- Beautiful scenarios, day/night phase in almost all of them, colorful and cute.
- Easy and fast to learn, with a few hours in game you will catch it pretty fast.
- Most of the community it's pretty friendly, always glad to help low levels (at least an 80% of it).
- Not P2W, the only thing that you can actually do with money here it's get pets, costumes/hats (you can get the same costumes/hats just playing the game and saving "loyaty points") and/or mounts. There's an alternative to real money stuff, the "loyalty points" are currency in-game that you can earn doing daily quest and completing achievements.
- Eidolon system, which in my opinion adds that special thing to the game, there's a long list of 'em, some are easy to get and some take time.
- Weekly maintenance and more content to be added in the future.
- As every other MMORPG, events.


Cons:
- Grindy, once you finish the main quest, you will probably get stuck in the 57-60 level area, where the only thing that you can do it's: well, dungeons, dungeons, daily quests, dungeons, and desperate a bit for that level 60.
- Bots, yes, each of the three servers have a load of bots, also known as "the redhead army". They're just gold farming bots, who usually send you trash mail telling you to buy gold for 4 bucks.
- Can turn boring time to time, and probably in the "57-60 area" previously descrived.
- Lag/delay in some dungeons
- The devs are hmmm how to descrive it, hmmm they're not bad, but they're kinda lazy, and when a problem arise most of the time they will opt for an easy solution. Note* this doesnt happen most of the time.
- Huge risk of a rollback when an imminent issue shows. Ex. a few months ago the item mall started to work wrong, the prices were wrong, and of course people took that chance to get cheap stuff, with that done the devs just did a rollback (if you're not used to that word, a rollback it's just what it sounds) they returned the status of the server to the day before that issue happen, with that done every single player lost the items/gold/exp/levels/progress achieved that day, after that they apologized with the community and gave to every player affected by the rollback a special package and a week of 50% more drop and exp.

This MMORPG is polished, and fun
Even though I'm in China, the server has fast response and little lag
The game is generally fun
However there're two main problems:
-First, it is not fully voiced, your character is completely slient so there's basically nothing to hear other than repeating BGMs and stupid SEs.
-The other problem is the one that almost haunting every MMORPG on the internet: BOTs
It's not only making the game unfair due to the great inflation caused by currency pouring inside the market gained via using Bot, but also make our life miserable-game provider thinks it's a great idea to make lvl30 tradable so they can block Bots from trading. THEY ARE SO WRONG. BOTs don't really care, but WE DO.
We are suffering from this stupid policy and have to level up like no tomorrow
According to my experince, I spent 11 hours to reach lvl 31. So basically the first 10 hours of gaming you are prevented from any kinds of trade, period.

But the characters do look cute, and that's all i really care about.

If you liked Forsaken World or Perfect World International (PWI) (in some ways even Battle of the Immortals/War of the Immortals) then you will like this game, it plays a lot like them with various improvements and it may even be the same game engine. Single click auto-pathing for quests, lots of unique little things to participate in, ability to skip quest dialog, full featured minimap will click to move, no need to loot after monster kills, etc. The user interface is refined and has a lot of nice little features not seen in the larger MMOs. The improvements make the game easy to understand and play.

The game is definately targeted for the casual player. It has nice graphics and sound, but a lot of the improvements are focused around making the game fast and easy to play. Unlike so many other MMOs, you get a mount very early on. You should be level 10 and have one toolbar of skills, a mount, and your companion, within an hour or two of starting the game.

You get to choose your companion when you create your character, and there are seven different choices. Each one has different skills and focuses - one may be a healer and another a warrior type. The companion is similar in functionality to SWTOR companions, but you can even have little conversations with them.

You gain new skills (based on the class you choose) as you level automatically, and you have character improvement tileset. You gain one improvement point every three levels. I call it a tileset because its not a tree, your starting point is in the middle of all of the tiles and you can pick improvement tiles moving outward in any direction.

The in game store items seem a little expensive compared to other games. They have plenty of various cheap or expensive items, but just for comparison: 75 cents for a 20% xp boost for 60 minutes, $5 for a 20% xp boost for 24 hours play time (24 hours of played time, not calendar time so it will last multiple days), $50 for a unique mount that is 60% movement speed, if you buy 4 of them you can combine them into a 90% mount. For $15 you can get an item that gives you a 24 hours of 50%/25% monster/quest xp boost. I like the play time versus day time system, because it discourages afks and it is aimed at the casual player who might play one or two days a week. So if you play around 5 or 6 hours a week, the $15 boost will last you about a month.

You can purchase XP books from the store that instantly give amounts of XP, 29 cents for a book that gives the equivalent of 20 monster kills of your level. You can buy the in-game cash shop currency in $5, $10, $25 etc increments. They also have spending "tier" rewards per month, as you reach higher tiers you get greater free rewards. The first two spending tiers are at $5 and $15. Purchases go through the Steam Store so you don't have to visit another website.

Overall it is a very refined game with a lot of features and a better UI that is not found in today's larger MMOs. The cash shop is optional but the enticement to buy XP outright, or buy timed XP boosts will always be tempting - but "free" games are not free to build and run by the companies that make them and they need to make a profit.

In general I have two things to say about this game:

· it's very nice looking anime styled and not oversexualized game;

· it turns incredibly boring when you get to level 55.

I managet to crawl to level 66 btw and rised a few alts to 50-55… purely for more grind.

Unfortunately this game have almost no quests which you may want to bother to read and vast majority of them are mundane kill and fedex. There are a couply of oddballs but they are very rare and very clunky. They doesn't feel like they belong here. After level 55 it's non-stop grindfest and repeating of the same dungeons over and over again. Every single day. Especially if you want to get some rare eidolons. There are a couple of new areas opens for you after each 5-10 levels but they are just altered versions of existing areas (and it's really boring to get these levels). BTW, due to that game looks very cheap. Locations are small, not very detailed and over-reused like hell. Especially it's easy to see in the daily board quests. Game pulls 5 quests out of 40 (? actually I forgot exact numbers) but there are only 5-6 different maps for them. You just start from different point and/or different enemies crawl around. Even "urgent" event quests reuses the very same maps! In the recent update they added guld dungeons and what you think? They are reusing existing maps again! You can even get out of the "dungeon" area and walk through empty from players and NPCs versions of villages.

BTW, one of great fun-stoppers in this game isn't even grind but broken exploration. Collision boxes for many world objects are incredibly wrong. They either stops you from flying over the small bumps or doesn't exist at all where you expect them to be or just have much less detailed or stays far from the object visible boundaries (which is rather low-res themselves but we can call it visual style). So, even with ability to fly you will often hit invisible walls in the places where you completelly doesn't expect them (Vultrus Vale is the perfect example - you can't even walk under the bridge) or you will fall through the roofs of some buildings and walk through roots of some trees when you won't expect that. That's another reason why I think it's very cheap game. Add to that autopath for almost all quests in the game and absurd storyline and you will found yourself clicking on the quests objectives and attack buttons like a bot just to get throught the next area and reach higher level.

Ah, right, bots. You will see A LOT of them running around and 1 or 2 mails with proposition to buy some gold from them will greet you every single day. Well, at least it tells that the game isn't dead yet. Someone still bother to buy it after all. Even though it's bannable.

PvP? It's not even broken. It have to be implemented in the first place to be broken. It's slapped on top of PvE and completelly disbalanced and having so many classes doesn't helps to balance it at all. It's hard to balance even 3-5 classes and we have more than a dozen here. Also it's limited only to arena (which is open only at specific hours) and occasional duels if another players will accept it. Well, it won't be bad if PvE and exploration parts would be fun.

Ah, btw, everything in this game is fixed to timers. Eidolons spawns at he guild hall at specific hours every day, PvP arenas opens by timer, dungeons reset by timer (and you have only 1 entry at the top difficulties before the next reset - have fun getting rare eidolons and good drop), fish kings spawn only at specific hours and world bosses too. And on the top of that Sky Tower is opened only 6 times during the weekend and you can visit only once per day with the same character (so, you need to have 3 high-level characters with good gear if you wish to run it 6 times... and it doesn't really worth to do so due to incredibly bad drop-rates). And all these timers are intersecting all the time. So, you always will have to miss one event to go to another.

So, I had a little fun at the beginning but then I realized that it turned into a work. Very boring work which only eats my time and doesn't makes me happy (or makes me feel any other emotion for it except frustration). Somethimes I think the whole point of this game is to make your Kotonoha wear less modest dress through thousands of hours of grindfest or thousands of money (or just waste them for nothing depending on your luck).

Another not so fun fact - word filter in this game are seriously ill since it detects "a s s" in the "glasses" and "class" and many other "rude" words in the middle of completelly normal with some odd exceptions for some theoretically rude words. Try to write name of one of the dungeon bosses Titanus in the chat - it will be completelly blocked since it's "t i t" and "a n u s". It even breaks item names and links to items in the chat making it's impossible to show some of them there properly.

Good sides of this game:

· it isn't stright pay to win (but you still will need A LOT of gold to get you gear and get it to it's full potential and it's either months of grind or thousands of money and some luck if you know what you are doing);

· it's very nice and cute looking, especially some of eidolons (but most of the really cool looking are either incredibly rare or available only in the store - I got 1 fragment out of 10 for Endora and 1 for some other rare during my gameplay and I did a lot of runs through high-level dungeons for that);

· community is rather nice and friendly.


TL;DR: If you like anime and repetative grind - this game is for you. If you only like anime then try to enjoy the story on your quest to level 55, make a few screenshots of rich players at Navea on the way and kill it with fire after that.

REVIEW BREAKDOWN

In this review, I will be breaking it down to four different categories:
-Community / Playerbase
-Gameplay
-Money System
-Overall thoughts/experience
Oh, and there will be a TL;DR at the bottom as well.


Community
Aura Kingdom's community throughout my experience was not exceptionally bad, although it isn't what I would consider good either. In AK, the majority of players are quiet, there are very few conversations going on in even the main cities/zones in the game unless it is due to a quest and/or event where partying is required. This issue may be due to the fact that Aeria Games, or rather, Aura Kingdom specifically is having a 'bot' problem making players (including me) feel less engaged into the world.

Gameplay
Even though Aura Kingdom uses the standard MMORPG controls (who some may not prefer), the game itself was very enjoyable, the animation in each classes abilities were stunning and beautiful. Mobs and monsters in this game were each unique but some displayed the same attack patterns making it feel slightly repetititve. Also take note that AK is a extremely easy game until near endgame (lvl 60+) as well as the fact that once you DO reach endgame it is extremely slow to level which may make it feel boring due to lack of effort needed or fatigue. Overall, it uses a nicely executed combat system but Aeria Games may want to take a step up on the early difficulty.

Money System
So, is Aura Kingdom Pay to win or not? The answer is no, heres why;
Although Aeria Games advertise themselves quite heavily as you play through, all you can really buy with the real money content are rare items or ruby coins which can be used to sell for in-game currency, gold. The rare items (such as costumes) changes your stats very insignificantly and is not different to those stats of a free costume that is earned through questing. Sure, you can buy gear with that gold you earned from spending your real money but in the end, most gear in Aura Kingdom isn't very expensive and can be earned fairly fast without even having to spend a penny on the game. I have experience on both my characters, one which I spent money on and the other I didn't, although they are different classes there aren't much difference in strength, at least not enough for me to consider Aura Kingdom pay to win.

Overall
Aura Kingdom is a fun and entertaining game, it may not suit everyone but it definitely kept me satisfied with everything it is and will continue to for a long while, I have shared a lot of fun memories with my friends and people I have met on this game and although the community is fairly quiet once you find the right people, it will make the game feel so much more engaging and lively. If I were to give Aura Kingdom a rating, it would be a 8/10.

TL;DR: Aura Kingdom is a fun and entertaining game to play but has its own fair share of problems such as bots and being too easy. It is not pay to win.

Playing this gave me the feel of playing Eden Eternal (Also made by Aeria Games) and it was a game I put a ton of time into because it was fun, this is fun so far and I suggest giving it a try if you have the time.

Aura Kingdom is almost a caricature or a deconstruction of the whole concept of a Massive Online JRPG. The character designs immediately call to mind Magic Knight Rayearth; fashion is pretty and elaborate with lots of frills on display, hair is long and available in a variety of fanciful colors, and all swords are huge. Combat is pretty easy to learn, each weapon type has some kind of small gimmick that helps to keep squashing the various adorable monsters roaming the world from becoming stale quickly. A similarly easy to learn fishing mini-game is also worked in, with its own equipment and interface. Cosmetic gear is entirely seperated from statistic-granting combat gear, leading to the situation whereby your character can look like pretty much whatever you want without impacting the ability to fight effectively.
This is the kind of game where there's no dungeon finder, but 14 seperate dance emotes. Where new abilities are learned automatically on level up or are chosen for free, straight from the character info window, and are re-chosen with fairly minimal penalty the same way. It's a very soothing kind of game, great for mellow, casual players or people just getting acquainted with online games.
...In summary, if you spend most of your time foaming at the mouth and screaming into a headset mic about why your last raid wipe or lost ranked match was everyone else's fault, give this one a pass. Try chewing on some wood instead.
