    Can anyone answer a quick question about this game? Why is it free? Is it instanced like Guild Wars? Or is it in a long running open beta? Or is it one of those games that's free, but you have to spend real money to buy some items in the game? Or are they just making this game out of the kindness of their hearts?
    You can buy some items from a cash shop, there are some faster mounts, some shinier mounts and some fashion items. That's about it. I have been playing this game on and off for several weeks without feeling I was missing out because I didn't purchase anything.

    I'm not sure how they finance their organisation, I doubt the cash shop is making them enough profit to float on and their website isn't plastered with ads. Hmm.

    Norgoth: go to your quest log and click the button in the top left to look for quests you can do. If you don't know where something is you can fill in the coordinates by clicking on the tracer menu attached to your minimap (green icon on the bottom right of the minimap)

    *edit: I forgot the items that give you a bigger inventory etc. But you can also buy these items from other players or exchange gold for cubipoints so you can purchase these items yourself.

    Edit: have you guys seen this (Starter Pack)? http://www.perfectworld.com.my/ann-feat03_starterpack.asp

    The website errors out when I try.
    Works in firefox. I'm checking it out now...

    Right, you need a promotion code to make that work. Probably after you give them money. :P

    So, can anyone give me some detail on the controls? Right now the only thing stopping me from downloading the torrent and registering is the people taking issues with the control scheme. If there was at least an ini file to tinker with I'd be encouraged to jump in.

    Controls are alright I guess... W,S,A,D to move around or by clicking. No way to make hotkeys outside of your f1-f9 to my knowledge. Oh, and have fun if you use a widescreen monitor, it won't even scale with mine even with the widescreen checked it just puts huge black bars that make it look awful when I do that. Running it in windowed mode until they fix it.

    Also I wish I could be a werefox and still be a warrior or archer. Humans are just too meh.

    but enough of that, the controls are fine, it's more the the second inbetween when you push a key and when that action happens that is bothering people. but that's only in combat, regular movement is streamline and not problomatic.

    You can open a hotbar that registers the 1-0 keys instead. It may be on the right side of the screen, or you may need to turn it on somewhere first.

    it should be on already, it's just on the side of the screen. there's a symbol on the bar you can hit and it will rotate it so you can move it down to the bottom. can you make it register 0-9? i only see 1-6 on it.

    Okay, I've reached level 20 with my EP and suddenly, I'm having a bastard of a time. I can kill one thing my level or just below it, but it takes around a minute of frenzied spellcasting, then I have to rest for about 5 minutes just to regain the mana. And when I have to kill 30 for a quest, well.... :(.

    I suppose I could just invest like crazy in mana potions, but am I doing something wrong here? Is there some magical piece of armor or weapon I should be paying more attention to? Or is this just a case of "congratulations, this is what happens when you roll an Elf Priest!"?

    Are you still using that quest weapon from level 14? If so try to find an upgrade, either through getting that level 19 FB done, crafting or outright buying it.

    I noticed a nice difference in my killing speed when I started using a level 18 weapon someone gave me.

    There's a lot of ways you can screw yourself over with in this game: did you buy the wrong skills and do you not have enough SP to buy the skills that hasten the killing? Did you put points in stats that aren't really useful right now?

    @ Seg:

    Hmmm, I looked at the next most powerful weapons and I don't meet the str requirement (mine's 11; they require 12) :(.

    @ Aldo:

    I'm using the Hybrid EP build posted to the AsiaPworld site, so I thought I'd be okay despite sacrificing pure nuking power. I have all my offensive skills trained up as far possible (level 3 at the moment).... Int 60, Con 35, Str 11, Agi 10.

    Bleh. Right now I'm training up my tailoring and blacksmithing skills while I psych myself up for more grind.

    if you're really at a loss you might be able to convince a warrior to team up with. Or just grind some lower level mobs, they still net a lot of EXP.

    haha yeah, don't fuck up your points, so far i've been putting 2 into con, 2 into int and 1 into strength every time i lvl, this is only after i hit lvl 15, before it was 1 con, 3 int and 1 str. I'm at around 45'ish con 76int and 18str and 5agi, it works fine since i can drop a mob in 3-4 casts currently.

    Made up my mind on my skills though, I'm going fire, with enough in water for healing and the weapon buff, and earth shorten from the earth tree. should be pritty good for group and single grinding, and AoE'ing mobs in instances.

    i should probably look at some previous builds from that forum you mentioned and compare a few things.

    You guys think its worth stacking Agil on a warrior to go for a fast attack/High number of crits, rather than a high strength build?

    An agi build is a viable build. Although you will be more dependent on dodging than with a str build you will still be able to rip through enemies like woah. 3agi/1str/1con should be good.

    It's still on my PC, but I'm not really playing it any more.

    Iunno, this is a good game, but I kinda have the feeling I've seen it all. I know that's not really the case, I haven't done anything in PvP, I don't even have a mount. Still, I'm done with it at the moment. It doesn't help that I'm having a great time playing FF8. :P

    Hmm I'm thinking of jumping over from Cabal Online to here since it looks like it has better graphics and gameplay (Cabal has a lot of breadth but little depth), so I've got a couple of questions for you guys who've been playing it for awhile:
    1. How are active are you guys at the moment?
    2. Can you suggest a class to start off that has a balance in PvE and PvP? I don't intend to do much PvPing but I'd still prefer one that isn't totally useless, and I hate those classes which are gods in PvP but take ages to level up.

    1. I'm inactive, I will probably go back once I've wrapped some other stuff I'm doing.
    2. What I understand of it: every class has it's merits in PvP, depending on how you allocate your skills and stats. I'd just play whatever class sounds like the most fun to you.
