This game is quite frankly... Terrible.

First of all, this is the biggest most blatant pay to win I've ever played. Like, shamelessly so.

Played it for a full year, maxed out 5 characters, and although there are ways to get the "good stuff" as a free to play, it takes months. and by then, a new update is out with more stuff.

The game has a ton of systems which pop up every update that just pile up on top of each other to make it exponentially more and more confusing or give you more annoying tasks to do on a daily basis. Just doing the "dailies" takes 2 hours everyday, sometimes doing the same quest 6+ times in a row.

The biggest issue is the wiki for the game though: there's nothing in it.

Want an example? There's a newer class in the game. try going to the official site and find out info about it. You won't be able to, because it'll direct you to the wiki, which does not even list the class.

This reflects a lot ingame. People who have played this for months often are shocked when someone reveals a basic mechanic to them. No one knows where to look for information and most people don't know how things work. Late game content requires both ludicrously powerful gear and intimate knowledge of the asinine instance/boss gimmicks.

on a personal note, I didn't like how it overrewards PVP over PVE.

Maybe it's not the worse MMO of it's kind, but it's WAY up there.

Though all my hours aren't recorded on Steam, I sunk in about 2 years in this game and over 3,000 dollars. Despite being a major cash shopper, even then it was obvious that my character wasn't the best. The skill scrolls and runes are over priced and the PvP is practically pay to win. You can grind and level up pretty easily but end up not knowing how to play your class effectivly. As a priest, there was times when I saw other priests who couldn't heal for crap. This game will lead you to sinking time, effort, and lots of cash if you want to be decent.

This is a lovable MMOrpg where your first objective should be to join one of the many guilds in the game. Preferably you should also choose one of the more crowded servers. From Europe? go Illyfue. The US? Lionhart. Anyhow, this MMO is special compared to the many others I've played, since It has several pretty fun Daily and Weekly event, a decent amount of instances you can run and even a even where you wage war against other guilds for territories. The downside to the game being, the lower levels are not as fun. You'll have to preferably be lvl 75 and higher to enjoy most of the most fun event that this game has to offer. As a guildleader in this game I often see players eagerly joining the game just to quit 3-4 days later. So you gotta really step up your early game!

Well, besides lots of pretty neat event going on. This is a very nice game for when you have achived max lvl, since there are always upgrades to do for your Avatar, whether it be getting the best PVE or PVP gear, fortifying gear to the max (harder than it sounds) or increasing your resistances for that extra PVP durability. Well, to new players this most probably sounds like a heap of gibberish.

Now the last part I wanted to mention, which ofcourse makes the game more fun but can be annoying for regular players. Are the people who CS (cash shop for real money). With CS'ing you get the option of for example Marrying someone in the game including marriage quests, various amounts of fashion to make your character look nice, pets, mounts and Orb (basically open them to randomly get lesser rewards - epic rewards depending on your luck).

Luckily most of these things can be achived by buying them from the ingame auction house.

In the end I would definitly recommend this game, since it means a lot to me and has brought me tons of enjoyable moments, more than any other MMO so far. Heck I even met my current Girlfriend in this game. To me this is more than a game, it's become a part of my life. Also I usually play on Arc another substitute to steam. See the Hours on record?
91 Days 21 hours + those few 125 hours. If that doesn't convince ya idk.

Anyhow have a good one and ty for reading this far xD ~Zeroshira
