What’s explosive about it:
Heavy use of traditional DnD mechanics
Complex puzzle filled dungeons
Ability to combine classes
Wizardry Online is a 3D Action MMORPG published by Sony Online Entertainment. The MMORPG offers hardcore players a more traditional Dungeons and Dragons style of MMORPG where each race offers added bonuses to certain classes. Once a player chooses their character’s race they are given a random allotment of bonus stat points which can be used to custom tailor their toon’s base stats, creating a unique character.
Players are encouraged to party up and complete the open world dungeons filled with difficult monsters, traps, some elements of platforming and other players who may choose to attack other players at any time. As a player dies in Wizardry Online, their chance of resurrecting decreases, if a player fails to resurrect their character perma-dies, forcing the player to start over with a new toon.
While dead, other players will have the opportunity to steal previous loot from the dead player. However, stealing loot and killing other players causes the player to become a bandit, making them unable to return to the main hometown and instead forced to dwell in the slums. Hardcore games who are fans of traditional DnD style of mechanics as well as dialogue crafted similar to old JPRGs, should try out Wizardry Online!
