At first, it all looks good. Free igc in the form of earthworms that drop silver bars, mobs that actually drop a lot of armor and weapons, and even mobs that drop bus's. Thats where it stops looking good. The bosses drop rate is severely lowered. We killed at least 40 bosses over a weeks time, and got 3 crappy uniques, and only 1 good 1.
The skill sets favor mages and rogues, making it almost impossible to play without a priest in your party.
They advertise knight cash for donations. I donated, and after many support tickets and 2 weeks, never got kc. Trying to get $ back now, but doubt I will be able to.
Now for the kicker. The leading clan in this server is called Revelation (orc). All of them have +2, +3 uniques, which seems odd all by itself. I figured out why though. Its because the GM's all have characters in that clan, and they spawn bosses for them constantly, and hand out uniques to clannies in big numbers.
If thats not enough, more than 1/2 of that clan are using some kind of tbl/hax.
Mages using blink repeatedly, with no burn down, priests using lvl 60 heal, subside and party cure.........they have all the gear and still use mad hax.
Then when confronted with it all, they call everybody noobs. They are the noobs, to have all that gear, and not know how to combo, lol.
So, if you're looking for a private server, avoid this one like the plague, it is corrupt from the top........
