My sister suggested that we try this new free game. Its called Runes of Magic. I had my doubts, it being free and all, after less than impressed status with Rappelz, Shaiya, and recently also tried Lost Chaos.
The Runes of Magic game… While it is incredibly frustrating to try and download, two seperate attempts due to corrupt files, and a couple days in time.. (keep in mind, my computer is getting really slow so that may or may not have been the games fault). However, once it gets on the machine, all the stress associated with it seemed to melt away. I have to say I really have an appreciation for this game. While things aren’t always as smooth as far as movements, and cities tend to have some lag at busy times (honestly.. alot to most games have to deal with that issue.. and again.. maybe some has to do with my computer itself). It seems to have married a lot of my favorite parts of various other games into one. Seemingly a child of WoW, with some FFXI aspects I enjoyed.
Character Customization is great.. I seriously haven’t come across anyone that looks like my new Katella. She’s as short as they get.. lol. Things from hair color, hairstyle, face, size of near all parts of the body.. .its kinda crazy, and fun.. 🙂
There is currently 6 jobs, with 2 more on the way this fall. While all characters are currently human, that will change again this fall when it sounds like they are adding Elvaan to the mix.. (not sure of thier spelling of Elvaan, and too tired to look it up.. hehe.. sorry).
It has a dual job option, which so far I think is pretty cool.. even better, the “subjob” that I still term it as in my mind, can be the same level as the main job, if you have leveled it that far. Plus there are special things you can get from the different combinations you choose.
My Katella is actually a Priest/Knight. Here she is with my beloved Blindrage, who is also currently enjoying this new game!
