Platforming, Sidescrolling Action with Diablo style level up and gear drops = Dragonica.

When the tutorial mentioned I can let go of my mouse and fully utilize keyboard as my controller, I was skeptical. But 5 mins into the tutorial, I was convinced this game isn't playable with a mouse. In fact, a gamepad is more suitable for its rapid action, and where the fuck is my turbo button.

hit level 20 and job change to acolyte. The job change quest is brutal. I thought Ragnarok Online was pretty mean, but this one takes the cake.

I failed to take any screenshot while I was enduring the 2 hours of platforming hell in Farrell's Mansion but a diagram would suffice. We started from the bottom btw.

Red arrow denotes failed attempts. Blue indicates success. Circles indicates boss room encounters. I did it with a 2 man team earlier and failed on our first try. There's no rezzing. If you die you have to restart the instance. We waited for another member and managed to beat it with 2 mages and 1 hunter.

If you managed to reach the lab you will fight this guy.

Killing this dude completes your job change. Yayyyyyy!  why so serious?

Do not download the client from games.on.net, that fucker isn't up to date and can't be patched, it seems.

I can't believe you're playing this instead of posting more Covert Action!

 this guy looks legit it's an interesting game really. I couldn't get into Maple Story, but this game managed to pick up my attention with its 'flexible combat'

Edit: Tried PVP and man it's hard. Part of it is gear based, while another is more on your arcade reflexes. Reminds me of those brawl game where the first one to make mistake is usually eating a one long chain combo.

You can actually start joining the team arena / free for all at level 10. Winning will reward you with CP and you can spend these for set items much like WoW. My mage is finding it hard to survive in tight quarters. I couldn't eat one air combo without dying so backdash aplenty while spamming instant casts are probably viable strat.

I rolled a warrior and got him to 20. Messing around in arena is pretty sweet. Even though I know I'm out levelled and outgeared, I know I had a shot if my ranged stun lands on the ranged opponents or I manage to dash in to land an uppercut.. Uppercut the bastard and tornado him in the sky. Then landing on his face with  a ten tonnes hammer before relaunching him again for a second rape. I think the max was 5 v 5 and 10 man free for all.

Hey nice, Achievement gives stat bonuses. I just realized it today. You can only have one bonus active though.



And it even recommends you the next tier of gear you should aim to get! Pretty sweet features overall in the journal. So be sure to check it out.
