This is a pretty unique little gem of a free MMORPG with a somewhat deceptive item shop.
Before I start - the item shop IS NOT mandatory.
Everything in this game is purchaseable with ingame currency, including the premium currency itself. It is expensive, but you can buy it with in game gold.
All in all, this reminds me of some old school point and click action bar MMORPGs similar to Lineage and specifically a game called Ferentus, but a lot more polished and with a very well presented UI and ideas.
-8 classes to choose from (4 in the beginning)
-a variety of ways to min/max your attributes
-crafting is very important and the only way to get best items (so far)
-item shop is very very optional
-lots of PVE content, but mostly traditional MMORPG grindy stuff
-encourages grind with rewards...lots and lots of rewards
-a million ways to customize your character to your taste stats wise
-okayish graphics and good sounds effects
All in all, this is by far one of the better free MMORPGs I played in a long while and has a very fair item shop that is very non intrusive.
I definitely recommend this to the fans of the genre and especially those old school players that miss some of the older MMORPGs Check out my longer-ish review here
