Shaiya is a free to play MMORPG made available by Aeria Games Entertainment and developed by Nexon. This game is a great way for new MMO players to learn the basics and meet other people. Shaiya is focused around pvp but has lots of pve as well with various maps and quests to accomplish.

However if you do not like to grind, this is Not the game for you. While Shaiya does have many quests available, the exp they give is not amazing, so players will often grind together in the various dungeons to lvl up.

The pvp is a great aspect of the game, two opposing factions, each with equivalent classes, battle it out on various battlefields. Also the pvp in Shaiya is unique since it doenst revolve just around killing the enemy, but battling it out for control of a Relic on the battlefield. The faction to break the relic and control it for their faction gains a "blessing of goddess" aspect for their faction which has benifical factors to each faction the higher it gets (such as increase in hp,mp, attack power etc.).

The classes are all basic ones found in a rpg, which is why its a great starter game for those just learning how to play MMOs. The graphics are overall average, but its nothing terrible. The community in Shaiya and other games made available by Aeria Games is amazing. People are always friendly and if you ever need help, you can ask on forums, or if in game on aera chat or trade. 

Overal a fun game for new and old MMO players who enjoy a fantasy relm and pvp atmosphere. :)
