Image of Runes of Magic Review

Runes of Magic is set in the magical land of Taborea. The game offers traditional questing, leveling, dungeons, guilds, PvP, player housing, and guild castles, with noticeable twists, such as the ability to dual-class. Runes of Magic has had several expansions and has great support.

Pros: Great character customization, Multi-class system, Player houses, Siege wars, Smooth gameplay.

Cons: Cash shop imbalances game, Very similar to WoW.

Storyline: Taborea was born when Ayvenas began recording his visions of an extraordinary world in a book. As he wrote, the god created peaceful races and idyllic lands for them to inhabit. But, as we all know, a happy story is a boring story, so one day he had a thought that would prove very dangerous indeed: ?What if the story weren?t so peaceful?? Ayvneas' actions brought on an age of darkness and horror. When he saw what he had made, he withdrew from the world to let its inhabitants write their own paths. Left to their own devices, the races of Taborea warred and fought through many ages. The latest threat is the Naga who once roamed Toborea before being sealed away. They are free once more and threaten the fragile peace of the lands.

Features: Choose from the Human, Elf, and Dwarf races.

Mix and match between the Warden, Druid, Knight, Rogue, Mage, Priest, Warrior, Scout, Champion, and Warlock classes to create your own unique dual-class. Each class follows the usual archetypes of MMOs; Tanks, Damage Dealers, Healers and Support.

Create your own items with Runes of Magic's nine crafting professions, including Alchemist, Armorsmith, Weaponsmith, Cook, Tailor, Carpenter, Woodcutter, Miner, and Herbalist.

Engage in thrilling combat against your fellow players (PvP) to earn Honor Points. These can get you on the PvP ranking list and can be traded in for equipment or other items. When you enter PK mode (player kill), you risk life and limb in combat against other players. Once you reach level 15, visit Lehman in the Varanas Class Hall to gain this ability. Challenge another player to a duel or take a glove to the face yourself. Dueling is not deadly ? a duel ends when the health bar of one of the duelists reaches one. In arenas and on battlefields, you can take on players from other servers. To do so, click on the swords on the minimap. The unique siege war feature allows you to storm enemy guild castles.

Runes of Magic is a great traditional MMO and its popularity is ever growing. It is a very solid game with regular expansions.
