Long ago, the CABAL cleansed the land with fury and destruction. Amidst the needless devastation, seven great masters of Force Power led the remaining survivors to rebuild.
Now, almost a thousand years later, the CABAL are puppeteering the evil again, breeding a child to be king and once again cleanse the land.
It is up to you to face the invaders of Nevareth and uncover the conspiracy behind it...
Amongst the 100+ NPCs in CABAL, you'll find friends and foes, good and evil. But remain vigilant! As sides change, some allies may turn on you, while former enemies can now be trusted...
There are a total of 6 combat skills known as the "Authentic Six" which have been inherited among the Nevarethians. Among the Authentic Six, the "Warrior", "Blader" and "Wizard" skills were established before Nevareth Exodus, the Honorable Age. According to theory, at the time when Core Technology was at its peak, hundreds of groups were practicing and studying their own unique skills. However, the current skills were developed by the first generation of the 7 Sages, based on the Nevareth Exodus survivors' knowledge. The 6 classes are Warrior, Blader, Wizard, Force Archer, Force Blader and Force Shielder.
Playing Cabal Online can generally be split into two more or less separate parts: Player versus Player (PvP) and Player versus Environment (PvE).
While in PvE human players fight cooperatively together against computer-controlled foes, they can also compete in the PvP war server.. PvP is a competitive game mode where human players can only fight against other human players. Only in PvP you can win Honor Points.
There are four different PvP modes: Mission War, War Server, Duels and Guild Vs Guild.
Cabal has an extensive Achievement system added during the 3rd awakening update. Achievements are obtained by many different methods such as quests, dungeons, pvp and items. Achievement points are obtained when certain achievements are completed.
Cabal Online has an extensive system that provides additional enhancements, or options, to slotted items such as increasing Critical Damage or Alz drop rate. Options are added using the Core Alchemist found in every town. There are two types of items that can be given options; equipment and pets.
You can create your own guild through Officers in starting towns such as Bloody Ice, Desert Scream, Green Despair and Port Lux. Guild creator character must be level 40, Class Rank 4 or higher. Guild creation cost is 10 million alz.
Cabal is a great MMO for those who like a good solid game, however it may not hold the attention of people who like something a little more flashy.

Eight of The Most Memorable MMO Dungeons Ever Designed
Dungeons are a staple of the MMO genre; large-scale challenges requiring co-operation and co-ordination between anywhere from five to a few hundred players to adequately complete.

Here, for your listening pleasure (and in no particular order, I assure you) is a list of some of the best songs ever heard in an MMO.
