ROFL? U sure u are playing Cabal??guys im playing cabal for like 1year now , and im lvl 133..i think this game is better than KO coz : no cheater , no turk , the game history is very well , yu can xp without having party , yu have many quest to do who gives yu xp and money , many dungons...now we got the new war channel and its rocks , trust me guys when yu are like 50 60+ ya will like the game =) im in EU serv btw ^^[/b]
Yes, there's cheating but usually they get reported and banned fast, so u dont see many arround. Yes, there are turks, a LOT of them, specially in MARS. I'm 138 and got 2 more chars 130+.
U can solo a lot but u need parties for the high level dungeons. Quests end at lvl99. Usually u get like 4 quests per level that help u get at least half the exp to reach the next level. Most quests involve hunting mobs or collecting items u get from a certain mob. Pretty easy to do, but time consuming. At least less boring that just plain grinding. Once u hit lvl99, the grinding starts. Being able to solo makes life LOT easier than in KO where a party is needed for good exp. Since all chars got their own buffs and there are leech items that actually WORK, there's no need for a buffer/healer. Still u can party if u want so its less boring.
U can hit level 100+ prolly in less than a month. The fun starts when u get 2x transcender in skills. Skills have their own level there and u need to exp skill. U could be level 120 but if havent reach max in your skills (transcender) u will suck bigtime. Fun doesnt start at 60, trust me. U wont kill anyone but chickens lower than u. 100+ with good rank in skill its a different story.
PvP is ok I guess. Nothing like KO tho. Each server (they call them channels) has normal maps and war maps where u can PvP the opposing nation. There's a single War channel but kills are not announced. U also cant see the name of your opponent which sucks bigtime. U dont loose anything when u die, just your pride :P Winning or loosing depends mostly on your items and level. Combos can easily be copied so there's not much skill there. PvPing in party is fun tho cause teamplay makes a huge difference. There's no war system yet, but next patch they are adding a war map for 100vs100 with certain objectivs like Lunar Wars in KO i guess.
There's also PvP in the normal maps but u have to agree to a duel. Those kills are announced and u can bet money or honor points (like national points) on the fight which is cool.
Graphics are pretty good (skills look amazing) and the game is fun. There's no game where pvp is as good as KO, so dont bother looking for a game with better pvp system. If u feel like playing a game "ala" Diablo2 where u play to get higher level, better items and some PvP, this is your game. Been playing since may and still enjoy it.
