Vindictus is an action packed free 3D MMORPG game developed by devCAT and published by Nexon. It is known as Mabinogi Heroes outside of North America and Europe, since it is a prequel to the MMORPG Mabinogi.
This free MMORPG is powered by the Source Engine, offering some of the best graphics ever seen in a free-to-play game and deep interaction with the game world. The walls will crumble and entire buildings fall down with the power of your actions. It adds an unexpected element to combat, which is extremely visceral and satisfying, with blood spurting from enemies right from the spot where your blades sliced.
In Vindictus, party play is not just a formality, it is something you need to be aware of and take extreme care in planning. When you’re battling a huge spider you’ll need one of your party members to distract it while other throws a chain around its legs, so that you finally get to walk past unnoticed and deal severe damage with your sword. Also, when you visit a dungeon the map will always be randomizes, so you’ll never get tired of walking through the same walls.
Collect precious rewards and craft unique items in the dungeons and develop your character. Customize your gear with stats via the Enchant system and color via the Dye system. By doing this, you assure that not only you have some powerful gear but it will also be stylish and original. In Vindictus you may even fight in your underwear – too much damage will break your armor and reveal what kind of undergarments you’re fond of!

how, here's the problem:
The customer support is non existent.
Basically, if you have ANY problems, your doomed, and if you sent a Ticket, 80% of the time they will auto close within minutes of sending with no reply or reason as to why, or you will wait a few months/years to get a reply, Or they reply without actually helping or telling you anything.
Oh, did I mention the lovely auto ban system they have? They don't actually have to ban you now, the system decides to ban you for say, overgrinding, or dungeons. Really, go check it out. :)
and guess what?
but the story is nice. graphics are too good. you will feel like you are playing single player really. community is almost non existent. i barely talk with anyone. and i'm lvl 74.
I played since closed beta and used to bugs.
But lately this game has become broken beyond playable.
Both pillar karok and bow kai are broken. if You want play (for some strange reason), stay away from these 2 chars. Pillar karok has been bugged since release and still no fix...
Every patch seems to make more new problems then it solves (last patch destroyed royal army base raids and these haven't been fixed in 4 days. No info is given will it get fixed at all).
In itself, vindictus is great game, but thanks do nexon poor management and devcat loss of interest in it, it hardly a game i would recommend.
I guess, if they haven't been able to fix bugs that have been reported since closed beta, more then 2 years ago... Why should we play it? Its better listen vindictus BGM in Youtube then actually try play this broken mess.
As far as the game gose i find haveing to party being annoying at time's yes but also makeing it better when you start off their are people their to help you out. The bosses all are hard and fun in their own way the skillz and weapons are cool and they seem to have one for every type of player (sythe lover here) i am lvl 50 and i have to say the grinding in the game is not to bad if you make some friends i often help my friends grind so they help me back and then with some one helping you grinding is not so bad the only real problems with the game is nexon is hosting it and their a mean company who know how to wring money out of you($20 sunken in my 2 chars) other then that i found it a fun game that offer alot more then most gmaes out their. It has lovely graphics a nice communty open market cool movments while fighting that all seem to flow even with the people who will press random bottons the cons inner armor is rilly anoying not much hair styles and make up enless you buy kinda foces you to work with other people for some misssions all characters are gender locked and after the quests you lose sight on what to do. Other then that i love the game alot and play it more then aion and c9 combined. thanks for reading ^^
like the black hammer armor
u need to run the dungeon for like 60 times to get the whole armor set
Though dungeon-instance based, this is a great game because it is a fast paced MMORPG. It really separates itself from the generic WoW-ish MMORPGs out there. Combat is so much more involved and exciting. You need to do more than random button smashes to pull off combos, but they aren't as complicated as executing combos in fighting games (i.e. Street Fighters).
This game is more oriented towards PvE, so there is a lot of team-play. If you prefer, you can also solo dungeons.
- Gets repetitive after a while
- Grinding for skill points
- Botters ruining in-game economy
I hope someone can help me out.
"We can now announce that the beta site will be opening from 15th - 19th September!"
This has to be one of the most beautiful F2P MMOs I've ever seen and the physics engine for it is just as impressive. break everything in your path and be rewarded for it as well! Each dungeon has a different set for difficulties as well as goals. Single player, do it in whatever amount of time, don't use feathers (revival thing in the game), don't use health potions, etc. Every angle of the game has a different way to engage the player and keep them busy for hours.
Crafting in the game though, personally I find tedious but it works. I am only lvl18 after a couple of days of playing with a friend so there may be more then what I know of at the moment. From what I gather though, as you continue the story line (quests) you gather recipes from different boss encounters and dungeons. When you bring them back and finish the story line for it, you are able to go to one of three people in town and if you have gathered the ing. they need, they will craft the items for you. You can even enchant, enhance or dye an item several times. Of course as with many other MMOs you have a chance of degrading the item or even losing it all together so it's a chance you take.
The play style is genius and incredibly fun! So far I have enjoyed the Mage character (I think she's Eve or Evie, I can't remember) almost too much. I definately recommend this game to anyone who has been playing games for awhile and is looking for something new, this is an incredibly refreshing approach to MMOs and will have you hooked!!!
Personally, I have played almost every single F2P that has come out in the passed few years, this one blew me away so much that I am sitting here at Newegg hovering over the check out button for a brand new PC I built...
I must have more Vindictus.
As a Nexon representative explained during E3 2011: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kx-LQr5vaoU (0:39)
Game was made only for mentioned 3 country's.
+very realistic movements(can break pretty much anything, lots of blood, flying ragdoll dead bodies)
+lots of skills
+regularly updated(almost always an event)
-gender locked classes
-only 5 characters(only 3 characters currently)
-lots of doing dungeons over and over again
-if you have a host with bad connection your whole group will be laggy
Sadly, it ain't available to europeans yet so this is gonna feel like a long wait.
