Other than the quest system, I think this game is good.

DugFromTheEarth Yeah there was just nothing about this game that appealed to me after trying out one of the earlier founder stages. Money not well spent, lesson probably not learned :P

I went in with serious doubts after seeing a boss with mechanics that looked alot like azmodan. Although after playing about an hour it is different than both D3 and PoE. Perhaps it gets more similar later on but the start had a different feel to it. The game is also essentially an isometric version of Tera, which is not a bad thing imo. Devillian will probably be more MMO than your typical ARPG.

beautiful looking game, super stale gameplay.

The devilian mechanic is better ignored, you can often simply play and never use it and not miss it one bit

The number of times you will have to hit “F” to talk with the same freaking NPC is just absurd.

Walk to NPC
Hit F to talk
Hit F to take quest
Hit F to talk to npc again
Hit F to turn in quest (yes, some quests are this simple and dull)
Hit F to take reward
Hit F to take next quest

Repeat process at the next NPC 10 feet away.

While games like Diablo give that “plowing through hordes of enemies as you progress”, this game, despite similar combat mechanics, makes you have that “Ugh, I have to kill 5 more of these to finish this quest” feeling.  Its 2002 quest mechanics with such a level of monotony that they even have an auto path to quest option because you will probably fall asleep as you are running back and forth and back and forth.

So, wait… they’re going to have Open Beta only a *week* before they actually *launch*?! Do they not know they’re supposed to stay in a perpetual “beta” until they’ve spent all their hype and then “launch” to get another hype boost? It’s like Trion isn’t even trying…

I want to like this game. But I am not so sure I like that everyone is a Devilian.
