    It's an upcoming Korean Gauntlets/Diablo style Hack&Slash MMO in a high tech/high fantasy hybrid setting. It has a few interesting perks compared to other games of its type, like using verticality quite a bit, you can control giant mechas in certain dungeons, some platforming elements, announced to have 18 classes at release, extensive character customization which is unusual for a game of that type, a lot of "impact visuals/physics" like knockbacks, knockdowns, staggers, etc even on your own character.

    Here is an impression video from a high tech factory run from the closed beta:

    It's been so many years since they announced this title that I forgot that it exists.

    Yeah I saw it in 2014 the first time. The release should not be too far off though since this is CBT 2 now.

    It looked like Diablo with some Monster Hunter thrown in. Always looked interesting, but I think they revealed the game too early, as I'm sure there are tons of people like me who also forgot about this. And I think it's harder to get another wave of hype among people who were hit by the hype wave once before for a particular game.

    Still it has potential, the only question is how much pay2win will it be.

    Don't hold your breath just yet. They had planned 4 CBT's before open beta and the release, and that's for the Korean release. 2019-2020 for the NA/EU version.

    There was an article released about a year ago around the first CBT where the developers talked about how they don't like p2w because (the reasons everyone knows), and how they are going to implement it in a way that is only for cosmetics or something like that.

    There's very good in-depth gameplay videos from both of the CBT's from a Russian guy who lives in Korea and he speaks english so you can get a much better look at the game: https://www.youtube.com/user/Lechkoman

    I did not even realize the game has PvP.
    By the way which classes would interest you to play?

    I'd expect everyone to roll Arcana as their 1st. I might go with a Bard actually. Healers are always in demand.

    Thinking about going Summoner though Arcana seems fun too.

    I feel like PvP will be fairly unbalanced with a class list that large.

    Arcana looks interesting though...

    Class mechanics:

    beserker - rage bar builds as you do damage in order to enter a juggernaut mode with increased damage and resistance to cc

    destroyer - gravity hammer builds gravity in order to slow and weaken enemies in an area around you

    warlord - gunlance builds up bullets for special abilities and also builds up shield for an aoe effect or individual shield. this seems to have changed from cbt1 as it was just about building bullets and how you shot them out.

    infighter - has two resource bars instead of a mana bar. not sure but I think each bar is filled by using different abilities

    battlemaster - orbs are built by using certain abilities and spent by others. some spells use more than one orb but all tend to be more powerful

    bard - you charge up 3 bars by collecting bubbles and then consume them in order to use one of two super abilities

    summoners - collects souls to be able to summon big spell effects. some use more souls than others

    arcana - 12 cards give you different buffs and can build stacks of cards on enemies

    blaster - meter builds up as you do damage similar to berserker. enter turret mode where you do a ton of damage but are stationary

    devil hunter - toggle between dual revolvers/shotgun/rifle for different situations

    This is now in open beta and seems quite nice from the streams i've watched.
    Any South Korean bro around to hook me up with an account?

    Doubt you will have much luck with that. I wonder if they will release it to the European/US markets.

    Chimera Not fake news.... here is a copy paste of what the guy told me (dude has been streaming LA for years, since the first closed beta and he lives in Korea)



    Then I talked with some other streamer whose name I forgot , he basically said "leveling 15-30 is boring, and 1-15 is super trash"


    EDIT: Also the first guy I talked to (Lechko) mentioned that 40+ floor dungeon in Lost Ark (forgot how its called) is the best content and best dungeon he ever played in any MMO ever

    The game looks cool but you guys seem to be forgetting it's a korean game and therefore going to be stuffed to the gills with pay to win mechanics.

    I never cared for that shit since I never go competitive shit. And whether someone has epics I do not have or other rare shit never bothered me one bit. I just level my character, come up with a build during that time and try to perfect it.
