BenjaminMichealNorthrup ayatesart Too bad.  I guess, if the game is fun, you could just plan to spend X amount of dollars a month in the cash shop, so sort of set up your own sub system, but then there’s the concern that you need to buy buff potions to really “compete”. I hate that stuff.

Well, it looks interesting! Thanks for the giveaway!

It kinda seems like Nexons answer to Aion.
Hopefully it has better airial combat than Aion though…

Upon further research this game looks like cash-shop/P2W trouble, to me.
Here’s some interesting insight from someone who’s been playing this game a lot…(I assume overseas?)

“Summon
There’s a nice feature that helps you having your friends around you. By writing /summon “Name” you can summon your friend for a certain amount of gold near you. (at higher lvl 1 gold is nothing).
Grind and Questing
The game did feel very grindy on my way to 60. I used all those free potions we got. The max exp buff you can get is 500%. Nexon will probably keep that up in their version too. The game is a quest grinder.
There are:
– Main quest
– blue quest (side quest)
– blue repetitive quest (up to 99x)
– green quest (side quest)
– green repetitive quest (up to 99x)
Guilds
Guilds have limited player slots, starting at lvl 1 with 20 players. Player can  raise guild lvl by killing monsters similiar to their lvl. You can make a guild in the main city. Ther are also alliances aviable at lvl 3 Guild. The guild skills are the following:
– LVL 1 Ardent training (+10% hp/+10% mana)
– LVL 2 Swift conditions (walking and mounted movement +5%)
– LVL 3 Money Handling (+10% increased dropchance)
– LVL 4 Vicious sparring (+3 % pvp attk, def)
– LVL 5 Survival training (increas 10% of attack, magic, etc and add 25 all attributes)
Maybe theres terretory war, i dont know.
Combat and classes
Combat is similar to AION with the addition of avoiding attacks. It is tab targeting but you can also evade attacks. The animation isnt that great, doesn’t look fluid, just flashy.
There are 6 classes in the korean version (5 in the nexon version). For the legendary dungeons, the game is designed around the trinity system: The Tank tanks, Healer heals etc.
– Wizard (Mage)
– Priest (Healer)
– Berserker (Warrior)
– Guardian (Tank)
– Assasin
– Ranger (not aviable yet on the Nexon version)
Beside your main weapon of your class, there is mounted combat.
A spear is used on a grounded mount.
A Crossbow is used on a flying mount.
The game has a variety of skills, but most times you will be spamming 1,2,3,4
Some skills need to be pressed multiple times, there’s a option in the OPTIONS that does that automatically by pressing your skill just once.
PVP
theres Arena and a map with free player kill. You get there your pvp set by completing quests and farming mobs for exharain coins. PVP sets can also be crafted. Don’t know much more.
Min/Maxing a Character
There are various ways:
– Seal familiars to add the stat buff to weapon/armor
– With a distractor you can take out those orbs from your weapon/armor
– use enchance stones from lvl 15-170: up to lvl 10 is safe, after that the weapon can brake or go back to lvl 1. There is overenchanting available. Once you reach max lvl 20 enchant (some weapons can) you can overenchant to lvl 25. At that point weapon cant brake, they just delevel. From 10- 20 you might use elunes for fail protection.
– Sealed familiars add points to your TALENT POWER (press P). You have a skill page wich can be filled with various passive skills to enchance your main skills. Those need a certain amount of points. Sealed familiars give those points. At lvl 60 you need to do certain quests to unlock the full potential. There are 2 skill pages for different builds.
– Using accessories, capes and other fashion can give bonuses like +5000 hp, +5% def (for 30days). Fashion can also be accuired with elunes(free, cash shop) and pcbunny coins (free). Also trough events ofc.
Crafting
there are various crafting options:
– Weapon 
– Armor 
– Jewelry 
– Familiar (make receipes to tame familiars (mounts, pets)
– Alchemy (give extra stats for 15min)
– Cooking (regen hp, mp and some give extra stats for 30min)
– Fishing (no diea, never done it)
There’s a success chance starting at 100% for low lvl stuff and gets harder at max lvl.
To show all collectives on the minimap you need to activate it (check minimap settings).
To collect the items on the next map you need to get to  acertain lvl first with your gathering skills (mining, gathering etc.)
You can find recipes on any mob, boss with a certain dropchance. Common recipes can be bought from various npcs.
Soundtrack
Didn’t like it since my ears are still spoiled with the best soundtrack eva (Lineage 2)
Theres like 5 tracks or smth: 1 for all maps, 1 for dungeon, 1 for cinemas, 1 for main city
Maybe more but it felt all the same.
TL:DR
The game is designed in its core as p2w game. You will suffer from bag slots, pet slots, bank slots. The game has a HUGE, HUGE variety of items. But in the other hand it looks fantastic, especially some maps are well designed. Probably the best looking f2p MMO out there coming to EU/NA. The game IS grindy and slow but has alot of mounts/pets to tame.
I dont think its possible to compete in high end dungeons as f2p player, since every good stat buff is cash shop and the elunes (fail enchant protection stones) overpower weapons/armor alot. Also you will run out on elunes as f2p pretty fast.
I must also say that gold plays a pretty huge role in the game- you get to buy just everything in the Auction house. And the game is very bot friendly with the gold farming and the way the combat is designed”

This last section is scaring me off, unless they have some premium sub with cash shop currency. We’ll see…..
