"Can be additive but it has flaws"
Different type of mmorpg that meshes magic with science. Specialized pvp system. Free to play, but with paid accounts they can purchases helpful items or novelty customizations. They crafting, pets and mounts available as well as costumes.
Specialized pvp system - combos - Its a con to me because instead of enjoying the fabulous onscreen graphics and action, I'm staring at the combo bar instead so only a 3rd party person can actually watch and enjoy the action.
The game used to be hosted through OGPlanet, but they lost their license and the parent company (Korea) decided to host it themselves. Their web address is not the same as the link above, its:I mis-typed a word, "can", should be, "can't", in the 5th paragraph: Meaning you can teleport through walls or objects, you must plot a course around them.
Also some people's virus scanners detect the game as a trojan virus. Its not a false positive as some people have reported. Its classified as a virus because the game uses a, "themida", to safeguard their files.
A themida is a type of program that masks the activity of another program from the core operating system. It is used by many companies and hackers alike. So though it can be a legit program, it can also be used by hackers to gain full access to your computer. If you disable your virus scanner the program will run fine. It only means you are trusting the game hosting server to not hack your connection.
If you run a virus scanner like McAfee's, you'll need to protect the game EXE files from being detected and deleted. You can do this by creating a passworded ZIP file. To run the game, disable your virus scanner's active scanner, then run the game. If the game fails to load, it means your virus scanner has deleted or quarantined the games files. Using the passworded zip file, unzip the file and re-run the game again. It will load this time if it didn't load the first time.
If you are into crafting as I am, its really a lame crafting system that employs random chance. There are two types of crafting, Professional, and Basic. Each type of crafting is capped with a proof one must complete before they can excel to the next level. The proof at the 4th level requires a chance item to be used to craft the proof item and even then the crafting of the item is based on chance.
Maps are tiny, and dungeons are even worse because they actually have ceilings and you're limited to how far you can zoom out. Often while traversing a dungeon you loose the view because your character is in a narrow passageway but your view is stuck behind a wall, ceiling, or even scenery object like trees. Characters are limited to running at one speed, but can be enhanced with class specific skills or a quick dash skill everyone can learn. A dash is exactly as it is. Its a quick lunge forward at a short distance and requires the use of mana.
For example, if your character is four inches on the screen, then the dash skill provides a distance of approximately 10 inches. Its not far and it has a pause period (re-use timer). Only mages have a teleport (blink) skill which can travel as far as 15 inches in distance, has a much shorter re-use time, but like dash its limited to direct line of sight travel. Meaning you can teleport through walls or objects, you must plot a course around them.
Mounts are boards (hover) and bikes (gravity), and though they look cool and do not use mana at all, they actually travel slower than using dash and blink, but faster than just running. Boards travel above the ground and can not go over low objects and can not be enhanced. Bikes travel higher off the ground and can go over/through some low objects and can be enhanced.
Boards provide various stat bonuses ranging from skill enhancement to hp/mp boosters, while bikes provide defense bonuses only. Also some costumes added stat bonuses, while others are only there for looks.

It should of read: Meaning you can't teleport through walls or objects, you must plot a course around them.
