  1. A-Bomb to my internet as well, Boonies-net Suuuuuuucccks
    Da-bomb for grinding mobs in ToS, so relaxing after a hard day and you don’t want to think about much, plus the *POW!* sound they make puts a big, dumb grin on my face.

  2. Question of the Week: How could any former Pokemon Master not be interested in this game? Tab targeting will be a godsend when your up till 4 am leveling your 234th dragon; got to have them in every color after all. The real worry for me with with the cash shop. I’ll rage if those “items” for the higher quality pets end up in the cash shop in a lockbox.

  3. Zach’s idea was the same idea that is currently killing Rift, i don’t care what trions is saying about there game less ppl have been playing since putting things like LFG and BG Specific ques behind there patron to promote there patron, you know its that type of strong arming that makes me stop supporting that game, b2p was good model but now all these ppl have this entitled feel of “Oh well its going f2p anyway” yeah games do but b2p is much better then p2p anyday even if they have DLC

      • RoI is more or less same game, It just a new improved version of the fail aspects from dragon’s Prophet. Nexon making good investment in taking in this game naw that it´s improved and ready to go. sadly dragon’s prophet idee went to be someone’s else gold mine. god to see this kind of games tho. i will surly play RoI and there is a slider in RoI for the UI in custom setting in game to fix the screan.
