This is a new fantasy MMO from Cryptic Studios that is free-to-play, and it's a total f*cking blast. I've been playing about a month now and have thoroughly enjoyed all of it. Think WoW but without a subscription and with more engaging combat. It's currently in open beta and goes full launch on June 20.
The game looks great, the combat is extremely fun and fluid, and each class offers a unique skill set and balance that prevents anyone from feeling like they made the wrong choice. They've done a great job of making each class valuable in some way, and they all play differently.
The classes are:
-Control Wizard (magic)
-Trickster Rogue (dexterity fighter)
-Guardian Fighter (stick and board)
-Great Weapon Fighter (two-hand)
-Devoted Cleric (ranged healer)
I have a Cleric and a Rogue and both are compelling.
There is an option to purchase Zen and buy packs of gear and mounts or whatever, but if you prefer to remain a free player you will still get plenty of gear and loot from dungeons and quests that you never feel cheated. PvP is still partially a pay-to-win bag which is almost unavoidable, but the core gameplay doesn't feel this way and offers a LOT of content. There are dungeons and skirmishes for every level tier, and once you hit 60 there are epic versions of all the dungeons.
New dungeon coming up soon:
I'm in a guild with some folks from work and a couple people from here, but that won't prevent us from creating a party and kicking some ass together.
Anyone else play? What's your @handle? Let's f*ck sh*t up.
Give me your user information and I'll put it on here for all to share. Be aware that you must be on the same server to chat and play together (duh).
