Diamond in the Rough

Combat: 10 Questing: 5 Dungeons: 3 PvP: 7 Foundry: 9
Disclaimer: The following article is the sole opinion of its author and does not represent in its thoughts or opinions. This is not an official editorial article.

Combat is very fun and exciting. (like Tera just not as annoyingly precise). they could add a couple more skills on your hotbar imo.

I love the armor/weapon style, not over-the-top like WoW/GW2. 

The foundry is very fun, but lacks a lot of options thus limiting your creativity. added in the future hopefully.

PvP combat is great, BUT! incredibly imbalanced and missing a lot of crucial mechanics such as diminishing returns. rogues often instakill people, wizards often perma-stun you to death, and poor GWFs make you feel sorry for them. not to mention whoever has the $$-mount has a huge advantage.

Questing is such a drag! very boring and irritating. back and forth, back and forth. too much running. gw2 spoiled me. 

lvl60 dungeons are a mess. agro is broken, healers unwillingly tank and tanks are not wanted. no tactics, or roles that work.

The amount of different currencies is also insane.

The world feels very limited/limiting.

And of course, many-many-many-way-too-many annoying bugs. hopefully fixed.

Just a heads-up, the shop is a lot more expensive than your average mmo shop. 

And don't kid yourself, though it is not "p2w" technically, it IS practically.



(fyi, mmo's i've played: WoW, WAR<3, Aion, SWTOR, Tera, GW2, AoW, NWO)

Final Score


 Combat is very fun.
 Foundry is interesting.
 Artstyle satisfies many different tastes.
 Imbalanced PvP.
 Max-level dungeons are a complete mess.
 Practically forces you to pay.
 Questing is tiresome.
