About Legends of Aethereus

The planet of Aethereus is an ancient and mysterious world filled with majestic forests, misty swamps, deep caves and ancient ruins. Devastated by three large astronomical events, the Three Great Skyfalls, it is a world just coming out of chaos and ruin. The recent unearthing of The Gauldron Tablets has revealed the existence of The Seven Ancient Skyfall Relics. The promise of unlimited power for those who possess the objects has led to a frenzied search across all of Aethereus.

As a member of the Nexus City-State, one of the last bastions of freedom and hope on Aethereus, you will be entrusted with the critical undertaking of procuring the The Ancient Skyfall Relics. Standing in your way are the Serpentica Shamans of Ghalia and the hordes of Khagal Tribes they control as well as the oppressive Venatan Empire forces led by the notorious General Zhorgal.
Your epic journey of adventure and discovery begins now.

Join forces in online multiplayer cooperative expeditions as the Inventor or Officer while you embark on a variety of story driven hand-crafted expedition levels and explore the wilderness through a variety of procedurally generated exploration quests. Design and build new gear and weapons while you develop your character across a diverse and expansive skill tree allowing for a multitude of character strategies.

i have more than 30 hours in this game... while I can't recommend it ( unless its on sale ), I gotta tell you that melee sword and shield class is playable and can be fun ( especially arena because quest are SOOOO DULL ). I do hope however that they will make this game better, New class is coming up and maybe change quest or give map editor to community.

5 viable skills to use in the skill tree all others are useless
JibioXs Oct 2, 2013 @ 7:10am 
There are only 2 classes .. PVP is SUPER UNBALANCED ranged is impossible to hit when playing a melee , you cant slow/stun/CC
JibioXs Oct 2, 2013 @ 7:09am 
The Co-op is unbalanced / boring and basicly non existant
JibioXs Oct 2, 2013 @ 7:08am 
Worst game ever, non-existant pvp / level design, below average graphics / assets/animations the price is just roflcake the game has no anti cheat, multiplayer chars are saved client side wich means you can edit your chars level/gold/skill points etc questing is basicly killing the same monsters over and over again and running from point A to point B, do NOT buy this game
