It's alive! R.O.H.A.N. Online's new site is open

In this GDC period and after a few months of total silence many just forgot it. But some (like me) were still waiting for it with a bit of fear that the project would have been canceled. But it seems it's alive.
Today YNK opened the new website for the english version of R.O.H.A.N. online (and it looks real nice too).
It's possible to register for the newsletter and a (pretty limited at the moment) message board. It's not MUCH, but at least it shows that the project is alive and that the closed beta could be around the corner.

Edit (thanks -SPI- i forgot): http://www.playrohan.com/

For the ones that don't know, Rohan online is a pretty nice asian free MMORPG that had quite a lot of success in Korea and expecially in Japan, it sports quite a deep PvE, an extensive guild vs guild system and some very nice graphics (with definately eyecandish characters by the way...)

Having tried the original version I definately think it's worth a try, but if you wanna see more there are quite a few nice vides on youtube.

This is a funny one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aaQzLVNpG4o

    Yah, the quote tree got screwed up.

    And I laughed at the short shorts, and the t-shirts while these medeival anime style elves danced that goofy dance.

    If it wasn't for the breast physics I wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the males and females in that video.

    In related news this mmo has breast physics.

    Have to say that the video is absolutely horrible quality lol, there's a better quality one at mmosite on wich at the very least you can distinguish guys and girls :D

    I personally found it funny because of the absolutely cheesy song, but maybe i have a skewed sense of humor :lol:

    I actually never tried that, nor seen it happen (i normally don't pkill), so I'm not sure how that works and if it has any limits. Unfortunately the language of the client limited me quite a bit.

    *Maybe* once it actually comes out. It looks a lot better than most Korean MMOs, graphically. We'll see what the PvE and character advancement is like.

    I'm kind of late to the party, but as far as I can see it doesn't use the same engine as L2.

    I'm installing it right now to play in the 'Closed' beta, hopefully it'll be enough to keep me from boredom for 2 or 3 hours.

    Goddamn half dragon, half whatever that can split his two hander into two single weapons and then dual wield them? Yes please.
    rohan0320135853281lk0.png

    I'm pretty damn impressed.

    I logged on, expected a traditional grindfest and what nots. First thing I noticed was that they had apparently gave it WASD movement that was actually pretty fluid. This instantly approved my view of the game. Soon afterwards though, I realized that there isn't a z-axis so jumping is a no go. So I start the tutorial, blahblah regular old crafting guide, skills, and whatever else. Once I started the combat side of the tutorial however, things picked up.

    Also, the stat points and skills work more like Diablo's system except once you reach level 50 there's a 2nd 'part' of your class. There's also apparently a third part of your class, but I'm not sure what level you can start putting skill points into it. Aside from that though, it's pretty much normal fare.

    I'll probably play more of it tonight and over the weekend.

    so are all korean grindfests designed by the same artist, or is there no chicken scratch for "originality"?

    I think it's because Lineage is used as the end-all of 'Korean' MMORPGS. It's akin to us as the 'WoW 2.0' games.

    At least this game is trying to be original as far as the combat goes.

    I create an account, go to verify and it just refreshes the verification page. There's a post on the forums about it, with no details other than a vague "we're working on it".

    If I go to check whether the details I entered are still available, they are. There is no way to do a password recovery or request another verification e-mail.

    From what I tried of it, yes there is a grind though there definitely are quests. The interesting thing is theres this M.Kill thing, you start with 0/20, when you get to 19/20 it'll warn you and when you get to 20/20 it gives you 7x the XP. It keeps going up and down to 80/100 and that one gives you a huge increase in the XP.
