OP  3/10/10 7:29:30 AM#1

 I saw this game while surfing mmorpg.com 

Publisher igg

 [ Mod Edit ] << Any info about them? 

The game is named TOF (Tales Of Fantasy) 


Basically clicking away text windows ruins every MMO, try to have fun instead of rushing things. Without story and lore all there is left is a bunch of mechanics.

This game would have sucked if they released it before WoW. This must be the second or third worst game iv tried so far.

Honestly its free to play so its not like you really lose anything to try it, I say give it a shot, if you think it sucks just uninstall. I pretty much try every f2p mmorpg that comes out myself, sadly 98% of them suck. Most recent Good f2p mmo i played is dungeon fighter online, sad thing is its ran by nexon and anyone fammlar with them knows how crappy they are in terms of patches and such.

It is your typical quest>quest game.The graphics are pretty good ,about the best i have seen for a F2P game,but with restrictions.I have yet to see my original armor change appearance even though i have totally new gear.The view distance is quite short,obvious reasons,F2P games always play on low bandwidth.so having high end graphics this is probably why they have so few models for gear and view distance is short.

The one thing you can really see already is a huge dependence on item mall.If you want to try and waste tons of hours to finally craft what you need,you could have easily been 10 levels higher and not have wasted your time.There is a few crafts that are constantly useful like food for example.To make any use of crafting gear they want you to use the item mall to buy the materials,so you don't spend countless hours to make one piece let alone several pieces.Bag space as expected runs short right away,even though i spent the time making the small 4 slot bags.

I found it very hard to play for more than one hour,it really is not too exciting,just your same old ,but i guess you can mess around for free,if you can't afford to play a better game.I would imagine that by time yo uhit level 30.you would definitely need the item mall and by calculations it is very costly.

Example cost of item mall is one xp scroll used on 10 consecutive days would cost you 11 bucks,that is just one item.So if you used it the whole month that would be 22+ bucks a month for one item lmao.I didn't even try to figure in the tons of other items,man if you took part in even 10% of the item mall,you would be spending 100 bucks a month for sure.

Well don't forget it's alpha or closed beta whatever it is so don't play it a lot or you'll get burned out and trying to bug hunt a bit would help the game maybe :P

Yes i forgot to mention the FONT,it is incredibly small,it actually hurts my eyes straining to read it.Many games off a resize,not this game,and also there is no key mapping,you click or use WASD,pretty much your usual bare bones,VANILLA game.Yes you get a mount,but you have to unequip it all the time to be able to hit X and sit to recover your health and mana that is used up very quickly.I found once i was killing ,it was better to just stay off the mount,and for long travel you just use the life stones,so the mount isn''t all that useful and is rather slow anyhow.

I am coming up on level 20 ,i may venture further to see how the game plays out at higher levels,not sure though,i have kind of lost interest already :(

To be FAIR it is actually listed as being an ALPHA test not even a beta ,so i am sure a lot could change over the next several months.

Lets try it.

Ban me If you want to.
 
I played Tales Of Fantasy till level 38.
Currently the game is more like the game support making it look as if it’s populated.
But then again may be the server is really populated but to me it looked more like a server full of alts.
 
Here is my experience.
 
They had been testing different stuff like hot spring, Shen Nong Forest and then again closing it down to. Technically the game is incomplete and many items at higher levels just eat up your inventory space and have no use.
 
The bohren part is the part that will continuously use item mall and give the player the need to push into malling. The Ashland part had a few dedicated players but with too many alts being into auto attack mode at bosses here and there, they are leaving.
 
During war you get as low as 2 FPS as too many characters are in a specific zone. The game will love key-clikers and with an amulet you can afk level. Mobs spawn at the same place and also I have seen macroed characters picking materials from the same place as materials spawn at the same place too.
 
The world bosses are a joke to be killing as you can as well play upto 5 characters hitting it and look as if that is too difficult. The game is as all F2Ps with item malls are a chase to look PRO.
 
If you are into 24 / 7 then you can make the items but that is useless when you see the item mall stuff.
 
The fusion portion of the game makes soul crystals a must buy and you will only go great as a toon if you can fuse purple stuff. Now this at lower levels will really need item mall. The level cap is 40 and the unbalanced economy and an empty auction that comes up by pressing ‘H’ with no player shops makes the game looks like a pre historic mmo which had been given a new look.
 
The community like any F2P  as always is into  too much chatting and no real game going. Hardly you find teams to do instances and the best part is you can cancel entering an instance in a team and let a high level toon just farm it.
 
With 10X xp pills you can hit level 40 in 2 days and that is an item mall stuff.
 
I have seen well of fortune being farmed by a single warrior toon. Same goes for Gobi cave. Honour can be farmed in arena and thus you go in to get honor points to get good equipments. It is your choice you want to farm for materials and be a crafter or just abuse the arena system and get good stuff or give into item mall as farming will take great time and a few alts too.
 
I havent yet seen a game that has so many ways to be abused.
 
So this game is a hope of being able to play it without real money involved but then again why will any item mall game want it to happen.
 
If you want you can try this game , at this time of so many good mmos , personally I see this game as another IGG voyage century remake with not much reason to play. It is a waste of time.

Cheers

I've played about every single f2p game and this ranks on the worse ones, the game just isn't fun or exciting.
