Server Merge: Siren + Hydra => Phoenix! (8pm EDT Tue 30/06)



EDIT: Our developers ran into technical problems while performing the merge. We apologize for the delay, but it looks like the downtime may be extended by an extra 12h. Expect the servers to be back up at 9pm EDT Wednesday July 1st!

Siren and Hydra friends rejoice!
The long awaited Server merge is here, and you will finally be able to meet each-other in-game on the new Phoenix server. For the Chimera folks, we still have too many players to pack everyone in a single server, so you will have to wait a bit more!

The process will be quite long and the servers will be down for an estimated time of 12 hours 24 hours. In the meantime here is a little preview of a new Eidolon who will join us later this year :)

Downtime: 8:00 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, June the 30th 2015. ETA: 12h 24h

You can find all the information about the Merge here!

    The cap for loyalty points will be increased from 9 999 to 99 999

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

* it's nice looking anime-styled and not oversexualized game;

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

I managed to crawl to level 66 btw and raised a few alts to 50-55… just for more grind.

Unfortunately, this game have almost no quests which you may want to bother to read and the vast majority of them are mundane kill and fedex. There is a couple of oddballs, but they are rare and clunky. They doesn't feel like they belong here. After level 55 it's non-stop grind fest and repeating of the same dungeons over and over again. Every single day. Especially if you want to get some rare eidolons. Every 5-10 levels a few "new" areas will open for you. Did I tell "new"? I meant you will be revisiting the same areas with different enemies on your way. Due to that game looks cheap. All locations in the game are small, low detailed, and reused on every possible occasion. It's especially easy to see in the daily fame quests. Game pulls 5 random quests out of 40 every day for you, but there are only 5 or 6 different maps! You just start from a different point and different enemies may crawl around (fixed for each quest). Even "urgent" event quests reuses the same maps! Near the end of 2014 they added guild dungeons system and you think what? They've reused existing maps again! They just placed invisible walls around some spots on the low-level maps and called them dungeons. You can even get out of these areas by jumping and walk through empty from players and NPCs versions of low-level villages.

Yet another massive fun-stopper in this game is exploration. Collision boxes for many world objects are just wrong. They stop you from flying over the small bumps, some streams all kinds of chasms. Have fun getting out of the city in Demarech Mines or Ventos Praire or just try to walk under the bridge in the Vulture's Vale. They doesn't exist where you expect them to be or just much less detailed and stands far from the visible object boundaries. See that chimney? Jump on top of... 1 meter above the chimney invisible floor. See that roof? Oh, wait we are in the house now. In an odd way. So, you can glide to traverse locations faster but you will hit invisible walls just everywhere. That's another reason why this game looks cheap.

Now add to that autopilot for almost all quests in the game and absurd storyline. Soon you will notice that you don't really play the game. You just clicking on the quests objectives to get to the location and repeating the same attack pattern like a bot. Why? Just to get through the next area and reach a higher level.

Ah, right, bots. You will see A LOT of them running around and 1 or 2 spam in-game emails with proposition to buy some gold for money 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.

Did we finally reach the PvP section of this review? Well, PVP is not even broken. It has to be implemented in the first place to be broken. It's slapped on top of PvE and completely imbalanced and having so many classes does not help 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 PVP arena and occasional duels if someone will accept them. Do you think you can go to the arena at any moment? You can't be more wrong. Well, it won't be that bad if PvE and exploration parts would be fun.

Ah, btw, everything in this game is bound to timers. Eidolons spawns at the guild hall at specific hours every day. PvP arenas (there are a few different types) open and close by timer. All dungeons resets by timer and you have only 1 entry at the top difficulties before the next reset which will happen in around 6 hours. Have fun getting rare eidolons and items. Fish kings spawn only at specific hours and world bosses too. And on the top of that standing Sky Tower which is open only 6 times during the weekend. And you can enter it only once per day with the same character. So, you need to have at least 3 high-level characters with a 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. It's 1.5-2 hours run for 40 people and it's likely that not even one will get anything from it. And all these timers are intersecting. So, you always will have to miss one event to go to another.

I had a little fun in the beginning but then I realized that the game turned into a work. Dull and boring work which only eats my time and doesn't make me happy (or make me feel any other emotion besides frustration). At some point, I started to think that the whole point of this game is to get Kotonoha and make her wear less modest dress through thousands of hours of grind fest. Well, you can speed up this process with money a bit (or just waste them for nothing depending on your luck).

Another problem is The Word Filter. It seems broken or just way too simple since it detects "a s s" in the "glasses" and "class". And many other "rude" words in the middle of completely normal. Try to write "Titanus" in the chat (dungeon boss name). It will be completely blocked since it consists of "t i t" and "a n u s"! It even breaks item names and links to items in the chat making it impossible to show some of them there.

Good sides of this game:

* It isn't straight pay to win.

That doesn't mean you won't need a lot of gold to get you gear and get it to its full potential, but you can get this money in the game. In a few months or, maybe, years. -_-

* It's nice and cute looking. Especially some of the eidolons.

Yet most of the best eidolons are either incredibly rare or available only in the store for real money. 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 repetitive grind - this game is for you. If you only like anime then try to enjoy the story during your quest to The Level 55 great barrier. Don't forget to make a few screenshots of rich players at Navea when you get there. Then kill it with fire before it became too boring to play.

BTW, it actually amuses me to look at all the people coming here in the comments section enraged by the fact that I downvoted the game which I played for so long. I'm almost sure it's better than endgame in AK.

Seems like nobody really mentioned this, so I will just go ahead with it. I read that this game is full of friendly, helpful people, so I decided to give it a try. I ended up liking the game a lot, however the opinion regarding players couldn't be further from the truth.

Pros:
-Amazing anime style graphics
-Skill customization - change the behavior of skills you already have
-Gliding - fast transport around the map
-Autopath to quest objective - regular quests have this, "hidden" quests do not. You will find both on all the maps.
-Creative missions - take control of npc during a main quest
-Achievements system - you get them for just about every quest you do. The names are creative and it makes the game more fun
-Sub class system - lets you mix 2 classes together for greater variety
-Pets - called Eidelons, they contribute to your damage significantly and you can swap them around based on the situation to take advantage of their special abilities.

Cons:
-Bot heaven - the review I read stated 99/100 players are friendly and helpful. The truth is, 99/100 players are bots. They are complete clones of each other with the same naming convention, yet nobody seems to care about it. You find them everywhere, not difficult to get 5-10 on your screen at a time.
-Players - virtually everoyone ignores you completely. Those that do not only see you as a resource, not a person. There is a system of "loyalty" points and guild points so people only friend you so they can click a greeting button on you once a day for loyalty or that you farm guild points for their benefit. Beyond that, you mean nothing
-Lag - you feel it in every slightly crowded area or town. This is especially noticable with delay on jumping/gliding
-Character appearance - some could say there is a lack of options for character customization. I haven't really run into lookalike characters yet except for bots that all look the same.
-Class balance - some classes are seriously overpowered, just about all players agree on who those are (Ravagers, even after a nerf they are still the most dominant by far)

Conclusion: If you have friends to play with, this game is pretty fun and enjoyable. If you do not and are not a solo player, don't bother, you won't get any help around here.

What is there to say about Aura Kingdom?

Well, there's a whole lot I can say, I can't just say IGN 1/10 too much water to cover this beast.

Aura Kingdom is a fine game, filled with the moe kawaii erm desu chan san senpai nani sore goodness you would expect from its charming aesthetics of course, but that's not all kids!

Let's start with the gameplay. CLASS IS IN SESSION (lol puns am I right)!

You got your Guardians, your Magicians, your Bards, your Ravagers... OH IT'S SIMPLY SPLENDID! Each class chooses a subclass at level 40! I always thought that your 40s were a time of crisis but not in this reality! Party up with a group of friends and you'll have a blast!

Questing is super duper party snooper until you reach 50s which are still okay but then there's level 60 and KABLAMO! You're stuck at 60 years young for quite some time unless you got the skills and the will to survive...

SOCIAL LINKS SOCIAL LINKS SOCIAL LINKS SOCIAL LINKS

"How do I make friends?"
Thanks for asking Jenny, before you get down to business to defeat the Huns you'll want a neato pateeto party of cutie patootie warriors! However many people give you the cold shoulder in this world. All three servers will have their share of antisocials, regulars and over the top bards with strange tendencies to touch your thighs and such. Chimera is the big boy, filled to the brim with peeps, but not a peep can be heard from many of them! Siren is my homeland, a middle ground where less people live but still a large enough amount, and then Hydra is a server full of jolly alts and such, a level 1 on Hydra could have 600 lvl 80 characters hidden away. Spooky? Loominarty confirmed lel jk don't get spooked now!

A good way to really make chums is by joining a guild. Guilds grant a lovely exp bonus and plenty of fun events to bring your show and tell objects to. e.g. Guardian Angels (Shameless plug) or jimmies Wonderboys (might not be real). Guild members can form parties with ease, teach eachother techniques and all that bizzle AND THE BEST THING IS THAT IF YOU SPAM GUILD CHAT THEY'LL HAVE TO TALK TO YOU! HOORAY!

GRAPHICS
eyy der gud, if ya like animoo. Actually you don't need to like anime at all I suppose, the style is PRETTY FLY without straining a low end computer with the terrain deets. The monsters are pretty goofy sometimes but hey, what ya gonnas do about it tough guy? That's what I thought. If you like TF2 or Sanctum it's sort of along those lines! UNDERSTAND!? OKAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!

THE WARNING
Listen here chap or chappete, don't touch the store, especially the paragon table if you value your life. The lucky packs, roulettes and all that goobertron can get you addicted hardcore! Vegeta what does the scouter say about my spending spree? YOU SPENT OVER 9000 pounds on a hat! WHAT 9000? DARN YOU LUCKY PACKS!

Overall I r8 8/8 k no memes involved I love this game despite the lack of middle ground between easy levelling and impossible levelling ya dig? Also yes I like cosmetics and such because I'm such a nerd when it comes to armour GEEZ get off my back, you're not my mamma! Mamma!?

8/10 cats

+Interesting story
+Fun Gameplay
+Dancing whilst nude

-Where are the cats
