Now we're starting to get to the good stuff...or at least the stuff that will tell us even more about how Skyforge will actually play. For the next 14 minutes and 20 seconds, sit back, relax, and watch Development Director Eric DeMilt and Senior Class Designer Aidan Karabaich introduce us to the Paladin and Cryomancer by running the Lanber Catacombs, a solo dungeon from the recent closed beta.

If I had to pick my starting class in Skyforge based on this video I would certainly be rolling around as a Cyomancer. The combat seemed more fluid and skills looked like they had to be used intelligently to avoid dying to larger packs of monsters. Luckily, Skyforge allows your character to change classes at will so I don't have to make that type of decision.

While the dungeon itself didn't knock my socks off (and it wasn't supposed to), I do like solo dungeons in MMORPGs as a nice "break" from group content or as a piece of content when my friends aren't on, so I'm looking forward to seeing more out of Skyforge.

I may not be sold on the game quite yet, but it's certainly one I'm looking forward to taking for a test drive soon.

Speaking of test drives, if you'd like to take a shot at getting one of 500 beta keys currently being given away, head on over to Skyforge's Facebook page. Give them a "Like" and supply them with your Skyforge account's email address (in the left listed as a "Win Beta Access" App) for your chance to be playing soon.

It's funny they had to censor the FPS bar because getting 17 the whole stream is pretty bad to see for Allods team and how badly optimized this game is at the moment. Game is fun but I hope they balance it better because in the last test some of the dungeons was only possible if your whole team was a Paladin because the boss would aoe and kill the mages in a couple hits because they don't have a shield like a paly, that and the Paladin just does not die at all ever lol it's crazy how strong they're.
