Hands-On Preview & Interview

Hands-On Preview & Interview -

We went down to Las Vegas to see Mytheon. After some significant hands-on time and some long Q&A with the core team behind this game, we have the scoop on this MMO that is a bit unlike anything you've tried before.

The game revolves around Power Stones, which players collect like trading cards. From these power stones almost all the game’s abilities are derived. The classes simply determine the style of play. Warcasters tend to cast lots of minions, Elementalists rely more on buffs and debuffs, while Eidolon are a bit of a hybrid, with a bent towards healing.

These Power Stones are arranged like decks of cards. Players can have hundreds of them, but assemble them into smaller decks for specific scenarios. This allows players to tailor their experience and role in a party.

As of a couple weeks ago, the game featured 190 stones. Each instance allows only 40 stones on one character at a time. They are drawn at random, like a deck of cards, so there is no telling which specific cards from that deck will be available at any given moment. It creates a disincentive to just toss extra stones in at random and rewards those who build well planned decks.
