ArchLord is a fantasy MMORPG computer game. On 17 August 2007 the game, along with its expansion pack, Season of Siege, became free to play, with the full game available to download on the ArchLord website. As of writing, the game features two expansion packs.

One of Archlord's unique features is players being able to compete for the title of Archlord, the supreme ruler of the realm. Only one Archlord can exist per server, reigning for two weeks before he is challenged by other players for the sought-after position. Archlords have access to a castle, as well as control over a dragon mount and the weather itself.

So, in an effort to find a suitable time waster, Ive discovered this little gem. Archlord used to be a Pay to play game, but has since gone free to play, so anyone can get in on the action and punch some dudes

Thats cool, but what makes this different to korean mmo number 958263365?
Well archlord features a number of cool options, that seem pretty fun to dick around with a PA crowd with. They include:

Open pvp
Guild warfare
Castle sieges
Mounted combat
Generally killing duders.

Open pvp? Does that mean ill get ganked?
Well not really. Killing a player of a lower level than you ( 4 or more) Earns you villany points. Once you earn enough you go up a rogue level. Being a rogue is generally bad, as npcs wont talk to you, you lose more exp on death and eventually guards will fag you on site.

Thats cool, but what about races and classes?
Orcs: Beserker (melee attacker) (Male)
Hunter (ranged attacker) (Female)
Sorcerer (caster) (Male)

Humans: Knight (melee attacker) (Male)
Archer (ranged attacker) (Male)
Mage (caster) (Female)

Moon Elves: (Female)
Elementalist (caster)
Ranger (melee)

Wait, the only dudes are melee classes?
Yeah unfortunately . At least if you really want to be a dude you have to be a tank.


Hmm ok, sounds good but how does it play?
The game plays alot like the bastard child of guildwars and diablo, which is not a bad thing. Working in a group is also encouraged, with stat bonuses and extra exp.

Right, but how does it look?

Bring on the shinys!

Looks good, but where do I get it?
Jesus cant you google. Your as lazy as I am

What server you on?
I'm playing as Idriana on the Evengarda server. I'm just about to reach lvl 10, and if previous game ons have taught me anything is that PA duders make everything more awesome.


Tl;DR Dudes tanking all up ins.

    It sucked when I played in the beta, but I tend to be harsh on things that piss me off within 5 minutes of playing and uninstall it, so I may try again.

    ...Gender is locked to classes? That's pretty stupid sounding. Also, I assume they make money somehow, what's the catch?



    Also, your shinys are tiny.

    Oh, well there huge when I view them :/

    Anyway its got the standard free to play mmo model, with a cash for item shop. Though the bought items are fully tradeable, so even if you dont pay you can just buy them off other players for gold anyway.

    I bought this for a penny on Black Friday. Haven't installed it yet. Did I pay too much?

    Good start to the day. Pity it's going to be the worst one of your life. The light is now on.

    Anyone else play this? So far it has been, "double-click mob, wait until it falls down, repeat" for me.

    I played it a little, it was your typical boring korean grinder. All the features are pretty straight out of lineage 2 too

    so it's an uglier free version of lineage 2 I guess
