Allods Online always sounded like a quality game, but it's F2P.  I'll never ever play a F2P game unless I have absolutle nothing else to play, even then I would give zero to the cash shop.....FTP sucks !

 Shop dependance compared to the dreaded patch is reduced by a whole lot. Of course it had to be because everyone could see the effect it had on the player base back then. With Gipat patch you couldn't really play without visiting the shop. Now you don't even need the shop at all to reach cap, though it will help tremendously. The things you'll need can be bought on the AH but it'll take dedication and time to get all the gold you'll need to avoid having to buy anyhting from the CS with real money.

The videos from the Gipat patch about dying to a equal level mob without incense are totally obsolete. The dreaded patch is long gone with incense (daily quests) and holy charms totally free.

Okay, i come back to this game from time to time because it has the quality of a P2P game. It has some grindy places but not much for a F2P actually. And is it P2W? Sure, but as much as WoW is...

Long time since i played WoW though but playing it casually it'll take a month or so to reach max lvl. You have to pay for the games and the subscription. After you've reached max lvl you have to "grind" your way through minor instances to get gear enough to get into a good guild that makes bigger raids. So lets say it costs you 2 months of subscription.

For that money you can have about all lvl 5 runes and prolly bag extension and maybe even mount. Lets say you play a year in WoW you spend some cash. I mean people even buy it and buys money from gold farmers and maybe even a bot.

So do the math.. It's not that expensive when you compare to P2P games. Even though the F2P is somehow subjective and I do think the game is P2W coz you can't compete without grinding LOTS to come close to the rich people. However if you play the game for a year and pay as much as you would playing WoW. The difference between the rich and you can be competed with skills and teamplay rather than one man army rich man.

The best thing about this game though is that i don't find even ONE person cheating /botting. And with the currency exchange the use of gold farmers isn't needed. It's almost weird playing an MMO without finding people botting :P

Thanks for sharing your experiences with the game, Emilmoller. The experience of leveling has improved with the introduction of Lucky Moments which grant additional experienced earned for those who are online when the event occurs.

I'm glad to hear you also enjoy the Currency Exchange feature and we are fortunate to have this feature which you won't find in other F2P MMORPGs. The flexibility and capability of buying Item Shop items with in-game gold is nice. =)

Is Dead Sea still bugged? Are mounts still CS only? Heck, is the emperor (forgot what it was called) tower still bugged?

 Dead Sea, with the mobs that used to float in the sky? I remember that, I haven't been back there with latests patch but when I did that on my reincarnation they were mostly ok, though it's possible one or two were stuk in the sand or under a rock or something.

Mounts are CS only even if they can be gotten with holiday events too. Recently there was an event that if you played for at least an hour each day for 12 days you'd get a Sinister Lion (Rank 2 mount I think). You could get the Wolf last Christmas event. Who knows what's next. You can also buy them with in game gold but you'll have reached cap long before you manage to scratch that kind of gold together.

Yasker Tower can be laggy at times, and the teleporter (inside the tower now) has bugged out on me a few times, but I'm not sure what bugs you're referring to. It's been a long time since you played apparently.

Allods so far is the ONLY ftp game that I have stuck with. I enjoy the gameplay, mechanics, leveling, everything.

 I think the new patch and event were a great success, I took advantage of of everything the event had to offer, and have seen a boost in the population. And it is nice to see someone here trying to improve the public image. Whith that said, I have something to add, ask, recommend.

 I understand how ftp works, I don't mind anything about the cash shop, I feel that MOST of the prices at fair, events are nice to balance it out, and would like to see more. So... the free gpots, suck. I personally will never give my phone number, or home address to anyone online, never. Or sign up for a subscription to something that does cost, to get around paying. And the surveys, every time I have tried them, after several minutes of answering questions, of what I thought was a survey, I am told that a survey can't be found for me.

 I have spent my fair share on the gpots, and don't mind it, I am all for supporting a game I enjoy. But I would like to see a way to earn a small amount without such a hassle.

 Recommendation would be reward players for promoting the game on forums, like this one, to help bring in customers, just a thought. Lastly, on the account page there is another means listed, achievements, of which there are none for Allods, why not? That seems like an easy way to keep your customers playing your game, ingame achievements, sorta like Steam games, that actually help you, that would be nice.

Out of all the f2p MMORPG games I've tried Allods online has to be my favourite, the design of the game and teh classes within teh game were really original. I stopped playing it however a while ago after the introduced that buff on your stats that you had to pay for, which got so out of control you pritty much had constantly buy this buff in order to progress into the game.

Was just wandering if you had fixed that problem at all? and what teh recent updates are on this game?

The patch so far is great, many changes for the better, some classes have been changed dramatically.

The "Martyrs Blessing can be obtained for free once daily, or you can cast yourself with the help of incence, which you can but from the shop, or complete a daily quest to get it for free.

The event that just ended was very cool, and helpful. My no.1 gripe before was the mounts, only available from the shop, and the game stunk without one. During the event I picked up a total of 8 mounts for my characters, and the feed is free through the daily quest.

So it seems to me that they listened, and made some changes.

I can't wait for the next big event!

Hobiton, it sounds like you are referring to Incense where it used to be essential to strengthen your character enough to kill monsters.

Multiple changes have taken place to ease up on that system such as including a daily quest that offers one free incense (which still exists) although the mechanics have been changed so that you don't need incense to strengthen your character to kill monsters. You also gain the ability to use the Martyrs' Salvation spell and bonuses from your runes without incense.  The benefits that incense gives is the ability to use the other three patron spells and the defenses against some  PvP spells.

There's a lot of recent updates to the game since the last time you played, so we encourage you to check out a blog we made to cover some of the hot features that came with Patch 3.0:

The simple fact that this was even implemented into a game in the first damned place SCREAMS stay away. This is so wrong on so many levels, i am not sure how even patching it away can clean the bad taste from my mouth.

Gpotato has proven that they are a money making company not a games company, no i am not sayign making money is bad, but the extent of the cash grabbing thats going on and has gone on in this game makes me stay away from it and pretty much any future Gpotato product.

 

When Gpotato can release a game thats not P2W then i might give them another shot, but all of there games i played in the past have soured me to anything they make. Cash shops do not have to sell advantages to be effective, many games have proven this time and time again.

Lolipops !
