Leveling guide black desert
Introduction Black Desert Online started this year off with a blast, giving its game world a massive increase in size by fleshing out the ocean and presenting hints at new continents for future updates. The update, known as Magoria, fleshes out the water in Black Desert, both the surface and what can be found under. There’s something for everyone in this expansion. Amazing places to explore, new crafting recipes to make use of, epic PVP naval battles, more trading options, and much, much more. This review is going to sound like an advertisement for the game, I fear, because there’s really not much to complain about, but a lot of stuff to applaud. I’ve been trying out Magoria (and Black Desert as a whole) since the release of the expansion on the 25th, and it’s finally time for me to relate to you all what I’ve found.What’s New By unlocking the ocean, the world of BDO has probably at least doubled in size. And sure, while the waters are content rich, … [Read more...] about Black Desert Magoria Expansion in Review
Black Desert Online is a high fantasy, action combat MMORPG that blends theme park and sandbox elements into a huge game world, and it’s probably very well known for its graphics and aesthetics. When creating a brand new character you’ll to pick and choose from a wide variety of classes, all with unique play styles but do keep in mind that they will be gender locked. The good news is, the game does offer the gender equivalent of each class and as an example, the Male Ninja’s counterpart is the female Kunoichi. The Best Combat System Yet The game’s combat system is action based which requires you to manually face and target enemies with your reticule to engage in combat. Each of the classes has their own unique abilities and skills that need a combination of keys, or combos, to execute. There are plenty of in-game visual guides to help you through it which is great, as the learning curve can be quite high at the beginning. As you gain more … [Read more...] about Black Desert Online Review 2018: Is BDO Worth Playing?

Some classes listed as DPS become significantly more about Utility, and … [Read more...] about Beginner’s Guide to EverQuest Progression Servers
Before I get into anything, I would like to inform you guys that this list will be a continuation to our previous Top free to play MMORPG list, and therefore none of the games listed there will be found in this list, thus it being (Part 2)! With that out of the way, I’ll be talking to you guys about what I believe are The Best Free To Play MMORPGs (discluding the previously mentioned MMOs.) One of the very few superhero MMORPGs on the market. Although admittedly not as good in my opinion gameplay-wise, Champions Online is nevertheless an incredibly entertaining MMORPG. It has a lesser focus on story elements and a larger emphasis on freedom to do what you want and create what you want than its competitor, DC Universe Online. I am not comparing the two, simply stating that the reason Champions Online is on this list is because of the freedom the game gives you and the quirky style of game it is.
