Crystal Saga, browser mmorpg

An mmo I like to play:

TL;DR?  here is the link to the game, just find Sidoh on Aquatic crypts if you want to play with me.

Intro

Hello everyone, its been a while since my last blog and i figured i would talk about an mmorpg i've been playing lately.  It is a free to play mmorpg called "Crystal Saga" published by R2games.  The game is pretty good for a browser flash game, there are many option to earn free premium currency and many options to earn most mall items in game for free by just farming gold and dungeons and selling loots.

Dungeons and Earning Stuff

Dungeons gives items to upgrade wings and mounts.  At first dungeons are very difficult, but around level 45 if you are a knight, you can farm this dungeon called Revenant's Vault duoing with a priest. Want more goodies for yourself? Make a priest alt then all your worries are solved.  This game allows multiple accounts, doesn't require a real email to play and is nice to play if you are an mmo type of a person who doesn't want to download clients and patches.

VIP

So far i have spent maybe $30 on this game in total, mainly just registered for VIP and bought a month of VIP for a friend. VIP is nice, it gives you a total of 4 afk hours (in-game grind bot) every day when server resets, a total of 3 green dragon coins which are used for this slot wheel type mini-game and i am addicted to it, gives permanent 1.5x exp and 1.5x pet exp, 3 extra dungeon runs (8 in all makes for excellent mount and wing farming) and when you make the $7 purchase you will get 700 crystal (premium currency, 1 crystal = 1 penny).  In total, VIP gives you $7 of crystal and a bunch of great stuff good for a month and is probably the best purchase you could make in-game.

Greed or Just Newbshit?

While R2games seems like they have purchases working decently, they are a new company and make greedy moves a lot of the time. Every holiday they have an event called "it pays to consume."  Basically this event will reward you based on how much premium currency you spend, doesn't matter if you earn if free or pay for it from their recharge page. top rewards and a shitty title goes to anyone who spends $3000 usd in a week.  holy shit i am not joking.  they want what my mom makes in a month and a half for a title and a bunch of free item mall items.  Therion is a gift from it....near impossible item to earn in game except on certain events if we are lucky and this item is used to make perm 2 person mounts at 100% success rate, which is useful for abusing the shit out of delivery events and grinding for torches.

Leveling

Now here is where i will get into leveling on the game.  It starts out fine with the exp rate, but then it gets terribly shitty and hours of grind will give 2% if lucky.  After level 55-60, grinding is all about torches.  These little camp fires you can drop off mobs once in a while and gives at least 1% exp in the couple mins it is up.  more torches you find the faster you level.  Another way to get them is to recharge crystals on your account and you will get some as a gift.  i think the $10 recharge amount gives like 3 or 4 of them...i used to have guildies who would share torch parties with us whenever they spent it was kind of nice.

The story

Usually people tell the game's stories first, but whatever i'll do it in my order. basically the storyline is you are a revived hero who meets some people, goes through rapid time change in the first few quests then you pledge yourself to the king and learn about the dragon sword, god of all swords.  At first you are pursuing to find your own dragon sword, but it quickly turns into a war against the undead.  these certain npcs you do quests for each time you level are like your companions, i feel like i am their workhorse.  In the end when you reach level 80, finish the fight against the undead that has been released, you can choose to be reborn into a higher plane of existence, which is needed to enter future content such as angel island and necropolis.  So basically it's a search for the dragon sword while fighting the undead.

In the end

Ok, now that this is all over, you guys should come try this game with me if you like mmorpgs and want something simple. there is pvp, pixies for being reborn, pretty decent pet system, pet breeding, a fair enchantment system, good stat boosting gems are easy to make and the people here are pretty good to chat with. nice community on my server.  my details are below.
