Pros:
Wide open world
-Unlimited quests, dungeons, and levels- plus more to come in the future!
-many classes to choose from- plus the ability to mix and switch classes at any time
-many untold adventures await you
-you're not forced to do anything- you can literally just play to be fashionable- there IS a fashion contest!
-there's ingame time events, plus weather at random times, to give you some time management for a lot of things
-it makes it kind of real- you have to learn EVERYTHING- from rest to combat- before it can be used, kinda like real life. you aren't just born able to use magic, or make fires, now, are ya?
-with the new free inv.+, you have a lot of things old players didn't have, which gives ya a bit of an easier start
--LOTS of choices to make that defines your character, and makes them special in their own way!
-rediculously addictive, you don't wanna just stop right away.
Cons...
*cash shop, but you don't HAVE TO buy anything from it.
*Pets. cash shop item, and they tend to come in handy.
*Players. not all are kind, and some are downright demons in disguise.
That about sums it up for now, anyone wanna add to it? yes there are cons, but not many :P


Also, Long response is long :3

oh, VIP service. while it doesn't massively influence your game experience, it does help to have the extra features. But again, not mandatory in any way shape or form :P

Thank you sounds like a game for me. I really liek the idea behind the free world and be able to have a job and so forth. Just sick of all these wow wanna be games where everything coems down to button mashing and or just grinding to gain max lvl or the reapitive quests that simply go get this go kill this amount just gets old. I will join that server and add you as soon as it is done downloading. Thank you for you advice.

Yeah That is normal in a f2p game from nexon and would be glad to spend some cash on a game offering something different like this
Herostar~Corrupt Jun 4, 2013 @ 4:18pm 
Dear god, is this far from WOW...
And don't try to grind anything you aren't positive you can withing 1-3 hits, it's almost certain to lead to death.
Also, the level system is unique, you see, you have TWO levels, not one. your current, which is the level you've gotten to since you're last rebirth*** and your Total, which is all your levels combined.

***Rebirth is a system that allows you to reset your character's age and level, but NOT your skills. You're allowed free rebirth once your character is age 21, thus resetting it to 18 will allow a rebirth every 3 weeks. (your character ages on Saturday. a full year ingame time is a week IRL.) this is key to getting AP, or action points, which you spend on your skills to level them.

The skill system is done by Ranks- From rank F to rank 1. It goes F,E,D,C,B,A,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,then 1. once it's at 1, you've mastered the skill. don't expect to master skills within a few weeks- I've played for a year now, and I've gotten my highest skill to rank 5. you don't just spend it all on one skill, since many other skills can influence the skill's power, and certain skills level certain stats- thus, some archer's take up crafting to level dexterity. This isn't your typical WOW clone now, is it?

Most of all, since you're just starting it for the very first time, don't choose Archery or Magic or Alchemy to start with. trust me, you'll regret it, fast. I would recommend Fighter, or Swordsman to start with, you can always work with more talents later down the line. some talents drain ingame gold quickly, thus not a good thing to start with.

I think I've given you more of a tutorial right here than nao will when ya start the game up o_o;
Also, if you get a "Graphics card error" click yes to run anyways- it says that alot, for alot of people.
Herostar~Corrupt Jun 4, 2013 @ 4:21pm 
I just got news they're undergoing an update, and a big one at that!
just a heads up, so ya don't get a shock when ya try to start it up :P

do fighters use a fist based wep or just knuckles/ marital arts and yeah im so used to playing a healer role and will prob go will a melee stand point for now and explore my options when i get a handle on the game. Seems like there is so much to do and cant wait to jump into this game. I have a feeling im going ot fall in love with it. Thats cool that they acutally made monsters a realistic battle like in other mmos you fight a 3 story boss i nthe beggining liek yeah thats so going ot happen

what im running
Herostar~Corrupt Jun 4, 2013 @ 4:35pm 
Doesn't matter what ya run, I've actually got better specs. I still got the issue every damn time -.- but it's literally nothing. runs just fine, beautifully infact.

And while fighters do use knuckles, there's a wide array of them, all of them varying. and to accompany the knuckles comes special skills that can rack up an awesome damage counter while still looking purely epic. I can show ya, I've got them ^_^

And realistic? the monster's are damn right surreal! when ya start out, ya don't wanna go poking the bears, and it's best to stick with mice and foxes. get to where I'm at, you're fighting massive golems, and YOU'RE STILL NOWHERE CLOSE TO THE TOP. the top monsters are easily the dragons.... -shudders- and for a good reason too TT_TT

there is a healer role, but it's better to just learn the magic later on. the book for it is cheap, and once ya've got that, you're pretty much a feild medic. carry pheonix feathers to revive players, bandages for wounds, and you're good to go :P
Herostar~Corrupt Jun 4, 2013 @ 4:37pm 
and yet, even fighting massive golems, I still get killed by goblins in a few hits -.-
The mobs aren't significantly weaker than you, as a matter of fact, the game pretty much teaches ya from the first dungeon:
"DO NOT, whatever you do, GET HIT."
and even worse, run into a large group of some monsters. a few of them enjoy grouping up on players- like goblins- and this usually results in a instant death.

It's a difficult game, but fun one at that xD
xNightMaresx Jun 4, 2013 @ 4:38pm 
thank you for the adivce and is there guilds and if so are you in one. yeah i usally go healer or support, but it is good to witch things up and really cant wait to jump into this vast world. finally a game where you have to wrk for things and no one is holding your hand through out it
xNightMaresx Jun 4, 2013 @ 4:39pm 
a game is not a true game without a damn good challange
