HELLO GAMERS! It's been so long since I've graced this blog! Things have been changing in my life at a rapid pace and only now are they starting to calm down. So without furthure wait, I'd like to review a game for you all! FORSAKEN WORLD!
When I first heard about this game I was psyched to the point of making my own guild for it. WoW ushered in Werewolves (Worgen) so it was exciting to know that PWI was ushering in the Vampire Class for Forsaken World. The race is called kindred and while I feel the term "kindred" refers to vampires in general (sorry, that's my old Vampire the Masquirade LARP days talking) I didn't mind the fact that they made vampire a class. I actually enjoy the concept behind the whole thing. The quests are simple and they flow nicely into one another. I usually hate the concept of everyone having a pet, but I find that having one in this game is a useful and easy thing. Not to mention you can interact with your companion to gain buffs to certain things.
I have also played the Elven race and find their classes very nicely balanced and put together. I enjoy the bard concepts which sort of throws me back to EQ. The only difference is instead of continualy playing the same song and only having one effect available at a time, the buffs are added to your damage output. Meaning the more you play a certain song, the greater your daage in it will be. Elven Healers are also nicely put together. They heal efficiently and damage just as effectively. These two races are my favorite of them all.
I attempted to play a dwarf, Stomeman and human, but my attention wasn't held all too well. I'm not saying their classes and such aren't amazing, but they aren't as nice a play for me as the other two. The other thing about this game I love is the zodiac concept. I know well that PWI tries to encompass the zodiac in their games, but I enjoy the ability to be able to gain perks through what they call prayer. Basically you pray to the gods when the zodiac timer is up and you may recieve a buff or an actual item. You may not get anything at all, however, so don't get too excited.
One thing I do not like about this game is the concept of tokens vs. gold. When you complete simple quests you're given points. You have to do dailies or special events to gain gold. The only bad part about this that I have seen for me personally is that you cannot form a guild with points. You can only form it with gold to buy a charter. Sadly, I'm not good at the events and dailies and mostly stick to regular questing. Then again, this game is still in Beta so it's not a big deal at the moment. All in all though this is an excellent game and I can't wait for it to be out completely. If you havn't gotten into the beta, don't worry. OBT will be coming soon and everyone can get in on the action.
