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.
Six Of The Most Pigheaded Ad Campaigns In Gaming's History
I may get some flak for this, but I actually admire (most) advertisers. It takes a great deal of creativity to make a product that sells without pissing pretty much everybody off. Of course, some people take that 'creativity' a little too far...
Five Reasons To Love (And Hate) Free To Play
"Free To Play" is the phrase that's been on everyone's lips lately, particularly in the world of MMOs. It's the new business model that every production executive is cooing over; the model that many have come to hate with a burning, fiery passion. But is it really so bad?
Ten Things Rockstar Did Right With GTA Online
So...by now, most of you are probably aware that Rockstar kind of botched the launch of GTA Online. I mean, they seriously botched it. To the point that it was completely unplayable. At the same time, though...they handled the situation masterfully - there's a lot of stuff they actually did right.

Indie Game Of The Week: Magicka
This week, I'm revisiting an old favorite of mine - and one that I desperately hope you've heard of. Magicka tells the tale of one to four homicidal, sociopathic wizards, their not-vampire instructor, and an eldritch abomination that threatens to destroy the whole world. Did I mention you can blow up pretty near anything you've a mind to?
Indie Game of The Week: Huntsman: The Orphanage
This week, I'll be taking a look at Huntsman: The Orphanage; a rather fresh take on the horror genre that manages to convey fear and anxiety without any violence or gore whatsoever. It's actually pretty impressive.
Ten Ways Social Media Has Changed The MMO
Social networks have effectively changed the way we...well, do pretty much everything. We interact differently, work differently, and even view the world differently since the birth of Facebook - there's even talk that it's bringing about a fundamental change in the way we think. It should thus come as no surprise that they've also had a considerable impact on the world of MMOs.
Indie Game of The Week: Outlast
This week, we'll be taking a look at Outlast, a horror game that tosses you into the shoes of independent journalist Miles Upshur as he explores the sinister Mount Massive Asylum. Spoiler alert: it doesn't go so well for dear Miles.
Indie Game Of The Week: The Bridge
This week, we're going to take a look at puzzle platformer "The Bridge," a rather esoteric game about a mad scientist, impossible geometry, and a reckless disregard for the laws of time, space, physics, and gravity. Shall we get started?
League: Ten Tips To Help You Be A Better Support
Historically, support has kind of been the butt-monkey role of League of Legends. In spite of being one of the most valuable and vital roles in the game, few people ever seem to want to play it. As a result...there aren't all that many people who can actually play it well. We need to change that.
