RaiderZ reboot shows off progress on basic attack improvements and the skill socket system

Developer Masangsoft has posted a new progress update video for its reboot of RaiderZ, showing off some new updates in terms of improved basic attack speed and a skill socket system among other things.

The video opens up with a demonstration of how the game’s basic attacks used to work, noting that their slow speed led to players not being able to perform complete combos before needing to dodge an attack. The rebooted version, however, features a much faster basic attack speed which will add a stacking buff that makes engaged skills more powerful, making basic attacks the core of combat.

Speaking of skills, a skill socket system was demonstrated that effectively lets players socket a skill into a weapon much like a jewel or gem, then drag the equipped skill into the hotbar for use. Bear in mind, though, that certain skills can only be socketed to certain items. The video also provided a look at some new updated weapons and armors and confirmed that unused items can be broken down into resources.

For those who maybe don’t recall (especially since the last report was in November 2018), RaiderZ is being brought back from the dead after PWE closed it down in 2015. While new word has been sporadic (owing to the devs presumably being hard at work), the game has made slow yet steady progress with plans for its story and classes, a look at UI updates and the starter zone among other things, and now this current peek at combat tweaks. That video is embedded below; make sure you turn on subtitles.

This is the only reboot. The original game shut down years ago when the dev shut down and this company acquired all of their games. They’ve just been working on this reboot for years and it still hasn’t come out yet.

The only other versions of this game that exist are private servers of the original game.

That’s an odd comparison given they are totally different games, if memory serves this was a Monster Hunter rip-off and not a particularly good one either, since Capcom saw the light and brought MH:W to the PC I can’t really think of a reason anyone would care about this.

This is more of an MMORPG – it has caster classes, healers, tanks, along with the physical dps (which seems to be all that Monster Hunter has in terms of gameplay roles, so if you like magic or healing, MH has nothing to offer you). It’s also a full fledged MMORPG with regular questing, group dungeons, PvP, and an open world. It’s not just about hunting big monsters for loot to craft gear but that does exist – although more in the form of end of story open world bosses and dungeon bosses. It’s also a more traditional version of action combat than a Monster Hunter, with traditional MMO ability systems and a regular action bar (and they have a cross-class thing where you pick two classes to combine). In short it doesn’t share much with Monster Hunter and more in line with modern action combat MMO’s. When it released it was compared to TERA more than anything else, although now we have more games to compare it to certainly.

I was going to say this is nothing like monster hunter this is a traditional MMORPG with action combat.
