A Free2Play WoW Clone and it's pretty darn fun - Runes of Magic


]Runes of Magic Homepage US

I was pretty bummed with my time in the DDO Beta so I started looking through the big list of MMORPGS to try and find one more my style.

I had spent some time playing Dungeon Runners, it's a mix of Diablo and the Warcraft interface. It's pretty cool, but I'd rather just fire up Diablo II, Titan Quest or Sacred 2 to get my hack and slash fix.

I wanted something fantasy based but w/o the anime style of artwork that is common in some of the popular Korean games so they were out.

Runes of Magic is pretty EQ/WoW Veteran friendly, I turned off the click-to-move option and tweaked a few of the key bindings to mimic my standard setup and was off!

Quests galore, items, upgrades, a 24hr newbie mount, runes, etc! It was fun to be a beginner again. I've not gotten far enough to try this next part, but the one main gameplay feature that sold it for me was the Dual Class feature. I'm not sure how it works to be truthful, but I'd love to try some of the combos. That open up at lvl 10 and I'm a fresh lvl 8.

Anyways, I don't want to give much more away, half the fun of these games is experiencing something new for the first time. If you have a little extra play time and you want to try one of the F2P MMORPGS out, Runes of Magic gets a thumbs up from me.

I'll post back with some more thoughts after a few days of play.

This looks awesome Parr, thanks for introducing us to it! emoticon

What sold me was that they have Druids, DDO doesn't. Also, I like that there is not only the traditional Druid, but also the Warden class!

Ed's downloading this as we speak, can't wait to give it a whirl!

While you're at it, get ]free gear.

I wrote about RoM all the time in my column on F2P games.

Try Top Six Reasons to Play Runes of Magic ]here or ]The Launch That Faced a Thousand Ships. I wrote a lot more, too, if you dig.

yea, played it a few months ago, took quite a long time to DL, then patches etc. Still have it on the PC, was going to try it again after they applied some much needed patches, new classes, etc.

It's like 'Wow-Light', still tasty, but less filling. <burp> oops, excuse me, i think i played too much.

Our toons are Ed ~ Crowsmoon ~ and Diana is~ Auriane ~.

As for the free part Talon ive met several people who have never used the [sign in to see URL] found everything I need in game so [sign in to see URL] give good gear and some regular mobs drop Blue Items(very good Gear).

Have gotten more than enough cash so far.
Even as a lowbie at bulliten boards ther are allways daily [sign in to see URL] some epic quests from NPCs.

All in all is a great game if ya looking for some light and easy play and dont have much time.
