There are 9 clans that each have a lost hero aka the 9 dragons. This game has some level based questing with an emphasis based on grinding and grinding and grinding.

The Facts (on a 5 point scale)
Graphics – 4
The Graphics of this game are better than average I would say (especially for a free to play game). There are times when you can see through a mountain or your character disappears. 소액결제현금화 I must say however that some of the views are simply breath taking. This also game has fairly low graphical requirements to run the game which is good for those of us playing on older machines.
Replay Value – 2
Not only are the quests identical once you get of your starting area but the grind is never ending. There are times when I found I had no quests in a particular area and I had to grind up 2-3 levels before I could open them up. The mobs that you fight against do not vary much. Once you have reached level 25 you have faced most of the different varieties of mobs with only their level and toughness changing.
Community – 1
I played this game for 4 solid hours one day and not a single person spoke to me or offered help. I also asked for assistance on quests, grouping for grinding, and just general location information to no avail. I did this on both my low level character and a level 52 character. There seems to be good general information on the community forms located at the website but I judge a community based on what happens in game. Much like all games there are exceptions to the rule I did run into one very helpful player another day that was about 10 levels above me and helped me find stuff for about 1.5 hours. So thank you to Xyntha!
One thing that I find very unique about this game is the player based shops. You can actually go to a common ground area and turn yourself into a shop and then go away and other player based characters will come up to you and can purchase your wares. You must remain logged in but it’s a great way to foster a player driven economy.

There are certain abilities that can be up all the time, and other abilities that are on to enhance your auto attack based on the weapon you choose.
