    Played the game for a few hours now and i really like it so far. Sure it has some minor issues i’ve encountered like the world map not showing up though this happened yesterday only and also some connectivity issues which also happened yesterday only so maybe it was a one time thing but other than that it’s really fun and especially for someone like me who likes to collect each and every item you can interact with it’s really nice to have so much stuff you can collect, break, loot, etc. and there’s so much story while doing quests and talking to each and every NPC that i’ve barely managed to finish a few quests at the first area, which is a Monastery high in the mountains. Also as a big Heroes of Might and Magic fan i love the world map which you use to travel to other areas because it reminds me so much of it with the way it looks and the encounters like bandits and sieges 🙂 Also the graphics ain’t so bad because there are still games running in 2018 or even released in 2018 as “early access” which promise so much, even good graphics yet fail to deliver anything.

    The game has a great old school feel to it. It doesn’t hold your hand. The only negative I have for the game is the loading screen.

    Honestly, this game looks pretty decent. Graphic wise it’s not comparable to some games which are released this year but it doesn’t look bad at all and game mechanics, etc. look really nice. Those fire swords of yours actually got some old memories back.. It looks like you’re actually gonna do much more in this game than simply skip all the dialogue and finish quests like in pretty much every other MMORPG since they’re basically always the same anyway. I personally am definitelly gonna give it a proper try.

      It’s still broken in lots of places. It’s very easy to ruin your story quests line if you don’t do everything in a very particular order. That’s the harshest criticism I can give this game. Otherwise it’s decent if only a bit too niche.
