Seen as the Ashen Empires forum is dead, i have a question about the game,

"Hi, i used to play Runescape, until the updates and i am now looking for a game to replace it, something similar. This game looks good, i was wondering how much like Runescape is this game. I know this forum is dead but i'm still hopefull for a reply, thanks :)"

i posted this on the ashen empires forum. Im quessing this game was popular back in the day, so can any old timers answer question?

Thanks in advance.

Never trust an SOE game.

I don't think playing a dead game will be much fun for you... give Eternum Online a try if you want an alternative to Runescape.

This game used to be great.

Then TKO bought it and it started going down hill. Just when it was about to die Iron Will Games (now called Pixel Mine) saved it. They made changes.

  • They patched things up.
  • Made great improvements to crafting.
  • Added more quests!
  • Got more subscriptions.

And then instead of improving exisiting systems like maybe a quest log (hello, this game needs a quest log) they started making expansions for profit.

And the game started going down hill.

A massive migration happened as everyone left the pvp server because they changed some major rules.

Then they added a cash shop which includes items THAT GIVE YOU AND ADVANTAGE IN THE GAME. Basically you pay for success now.

They advertise their game as "free"....lol  very funny. Sure you can play for free but with an experience gain of a snails pace.

Stay away!

I'd say in general this game is a classy version of Runescape. That being said its more complex and definitely more challenging. If you're a hardcore Runescape player then you should enjoy this. And yeah this game was extremely popular back in its day and when it was called "Dransik". Bewary though: there's only a handful of players that play nowadays.

 

God will people give that Eternum Online thing a rest? Runescape is still leagues ahead of that game. Not to mention Runescape and Eternum Online are in no way comparable as Eternum Online is a TOTALLY different game with different mechanics, graphic styles, etc. The only thing they have in common is that they're set in a D&D fantasy realm.

Ashen Empires and Runescape cannot be compared. I think AE beats the pants off Runescape.
