Allods Online is an impressive free to play fantasy MMORPG with some Sci-Fi elements that fans of the genre’s most successful titles can enjoy. It features extensive questing, intense player-versus-player combat, grand exploration, in-depth character development and plenty of social interaction.
Join one of the 2 factions at war in the deep storyline by choosing from one of the 28 classes available. Customise your character and pet via the rich creation system and level up by completing over 1500 quests at launch and confronting over 300 unique creatures. Explore and fight your way in dungeons, castles and temples as a raid or as a group. Allods Online features Faction vs Faction, Players vs Environment, and Ship vs Ship mechanisms. Be ready to explore the Astral space on board of your own ship, and if piracy sounds like the life for you, it can be!
In the Astral, players will have the chance to put their wits and brawn to the test in larger-than-life Astral battles, the game’s giant fights between competing "Astral ships" manned by multiple players. Adventurers from all over the world will have to choose between six races and eight character classes before choosing their allegiance between the two warring factions: the League and the Empire.

Guess and mainly (probably) the same garbage toxicity exist.
I play this game for long time. I've been trying out many games. New ones, old ones, subscription and free games and always, always, comeback to Allods Online. The game is just great!
For years Gpotato ruined it, then, Webzen continued with deal and now, My.Com, just continue the job... I never understood or will, why this game have no publicity at all and it is not even on Publisher games list... It's not the game fault but it's so poorly management!
This is probably the best game but history have is weight. The Cash Shop is a heavy burden and the "free" to play version is actually the "pay" version which made hundreds leave the game. You can play freely till level cap but after that, you be a punchbag and not enjoy at all the endgame content. Just to prove it is on time every MMO goes subscription to free to play, Allods Online went otherwise.
But now that they've opened the subscription server the game finally, over 5 years, became a great game for everyone. And is probably the cheapest subscription game you'll find!
The game have it all. It's not a WoW thing neither any thing like it.
If you try the free to play version to have a look, you'll love it! At least for me it's the best so far. But yes, the F2P version is a P2W no matter what and the real game is subscription base.
Take a look at website, at forum, at guild portal, download and try and most of all:
MMOBOMB, the info on the game is not updated!
1.character naming was restrictive, no spacing special character or any character that isn't a Latin numeral. (when are game creators going to realise its not uncommon for people to have the same name)
2.screen resolution was unchangeable. try as I might I could not change the size of my screen. it ruined my gameplay. it felt like I was looking at the game through a telescope. yes there was a screen resolution in the video options and it was broken.
3.the game itself (from what I could see playing through a telescope) looked ok. the default controls needed to be tinkered with to make it functional but the skill activations cool downs and the skills themselves were a retarded imitation of wow that didn't work.
4.the character class's were nonsensical. e.g.. a wannabe warlock class called a summoner that was described as a necromancer/summoner type... very poor indeed
5.the hair/colour and face opens sucked
when I made my character I couldn't make my name Hellion. I tried - _ special character and even caps in the I and l (the I cap was too funky to be passed off as an L) in the end I couldn't get my character name so I typed FvckMyCom.... it was a legal name. so my character is called fvckmycom. this is an example of bad video game devs. they never put any thought into making new features for games, only copying successful games so they can make money.
if you want to play a game like this go play wow. $14 a month isn't that much.
if you dont have high level runes no one wants you in raid team plus you will get 2 shotted in pvp
WHY NOT TELL PEOPLE OF OTHER NICE ASPECTS OF THE GAME?????? THIS IS WHAT I HATE ABOUT THESE SITES THE COMMUNITY DROPS WAY OFF TOPIC.
Instead of hearing random crap about wow and cs I a possible player looking at the comments of ex and current players was expecting to hear about the game. Like how is the gameplay, questing, dungens, characters etc..... I can promise you most games have bad sectors WOW: the PTP concept, free browser games are CS orientated, etc but stop focusing on the games' bad sector and focus on the good sectorS ..... ffs....
"Omg that guy has a sword, my character on WoW had a sword, this is such a copy." Let's just break this down to what it really is, ALL games are just Pong copies.
But for now, it is pointless to waste months and money to perfect your character and being beaten by someone who paid more.
which is better?
By the way, learn how to deal with your mistakes, or should I say..."Magicman's mistake"...I actually got into Allods cause that review and endded up on a P2W game.
That will make me think twice and wonder.....Is the MMOBomb judgement correct? Maybe not...
i think this is best online game that i ever try, there some reason i said that :
1. nice graphic, and if you want some adventure you will find in this game, you can explore huge map with detailed. not just array of graphics that make you boring.
2. You will chose your character with different faction, race and class, but not only that. after you chose your class, you will raised your character with so many ways, from skill and talent (exp: you can chose to build your scout to be range like archer or melee fighter like assassin class or just hybrid type) : that's why only adult play this game in my country, children may confused play this game
3. if some people said you can reach glory if you have more cash in this game, that is not true, in this game, actually, i play this game, with more cash, i have purple rune, but when WH (some war feature in this game) i really bad, cause my eq not support me, and to get the eq you must have some friend that can play constant and consist with you, and there is cash exchange feature that balance cash and gold in this game
4. if you enjoyed pvp game. so in this game you will find pvp without afraid you loose your peace when you need (not like rohan that make you have a bad dream an neither like rf that torturing low grade player), you can choose peace or not in some map.
I don't want to keep this review as a wall of text, so I will separate it into the pros, and the cons.
-Astonishing game world, many areas to explore and many different unique monster designs.
-Excellent graphics, are easily on-par with the graphics found in World of Warcraft if not superior (keep in mind both ART styles are very different)
-Great community, I found a friendly guild early in the game and advanced with it to winning astral battles and conquering Allods (small worlds that the entire game world is structured by.
-Fluid and interactive gameplay, though it is not an action MMORPG, Allods Online still requires you to manually attack. However, you get accustomed to this relatively fast, and everything you do in the game world feels timed just right, and feels great.
-Beautiful Music; from the log-in menu to the icy mountain of the Frozen Frontier, the soundtrack is one of the best I know of in MMORPGs. So plug in your headphones, you will enjoy it!
-Highly dependent cash shop; up to around level 35 or 40, your effectiveness in pvp-oriented zones, (which you MUST go through) depends on the strength of your class, and the level of your runes, which cost real money.
-Imbalanced classes; during my time playing, I found that the scout class dominated pvp, it's as simple as that.
- With a large world comes a lot of walking, and you walk slowly in Allods. A mount is pretty essential in the Allods experience, and it either costs money to get one, or you must wait for an event, which do not come around very often.
I know that the list of cons is overwhelming, but my verdict is my opinion.
To wrap it up, Allods Online is a fantastic game. Get a couple of friends to play it with you, they will enjoy it too. There are so many little details that make Allods an absolute must-try free-to-play MMORPG. As a warning though, if you are going to invest in Allods, you will literally, REALLY have to invest in it.
I would not recomend this game.
The game got Instances that are challenging, they got PvP, and a very original feature: Astral ships.
With these ships, you can sail out with your guild and fight Astral demons, travel to far-away "Allods" (Small floating landmasses) and hunt down Boss-mobs and get epic treasures and cool loot. What I really like is that the loot have many different levels of rarity: Uncommon, Rare, Epic, Relic, Artifact and more. A big plus is that the End-game starts at level 40ish already instead of 51 which is the level-cap.
A huge downside with the game is the Runes. Runes boost the players offencive and defencive abilities and you can't play the late game without them. And they are bought from the Cash-shop. This have been solved for the F2P players now, and you can buy CS-money for ingame-money. If you grind ALOT. Other than that, this game is more than worth to try out. :D
I should also mention that the game is very active and there are alot of friendly players!
I don't got any problem with the cashshop, its OK.
I have to admit, It was really quite enjoyable, especially for a someone who never thought they would be into WoW.
As for the cash shop issue people seem to be debating about, I found no problem with it, however I was on a PvE server. That said, you can get some pretty nice items simply through mob drops.
On top of that, the things like Holy Marks and etc which keep a curse from falling on your armor when you die are free from the cash shop, which is good, because it may as well be mandatory for every player to have. That said, if you run out and a curse does befall your armor, turning its positive bonuses to stats into negatives, it does cost money for the item to remove the curse. Additionally, the lore of the world and the story was unique and well thought out, and I actually regret a bit not finding out how things play out.
Once your each level 15, the rate at which you gain experience seems to come to a dramatic halt. It feels like you hit a brick wall, or at least that's the feeling I got from it.
On top of that, the combat feels a little slower than I would like, but that's a highly personal preference, as i feel it would be better for the combat to be at a speed closer to that of 7Souls, which is relatively fast.
Long story short, I enjoyed it quite a bit for someone who never thought they would enjoy WoW, but the amount of grinding required for getting from level 15 on seemed a little much for my liking, and the pace of combat was a little slow. The story was unique and well thought out, and the characters you meet were sometimes quite interesting.
I would highly suggest this as an alternative to anyone who wants to play WoW, as I'm sure they may enjoy it more than I have, or at least stay with it longer, as it really is a good F2P game overall.
this game have that cash shop over exagerating or is not that exagerating anymore now??
to know if its worth trying again :D with some friends
If you don't mind the level grind though, this is a very engaging game with wonderfully done graphics. The game play is smart, fun and fast paced (most of the time) while the abilities themselves are easy to understand, use and maintain. The faction cities are huge and beautifully done, very well detailed and you find yourself somewhat lost at where to go at times. Being lost didn't bother me though, as there was so much to explore in such a large place that I was willing to just take it all in. The tutorial for both sides is very fun and makes the introduction to the game feel very epic and gives you an honest feeling that you are contributing to the story line continuing on from where you joined.
All in all I would have to say people should try this. Obviously it will not suit everyone but the game is very well done and worth a try at least.
(I know nothing of the cash shop as I don't use them.)
