TMC Listing: The Godwars: War of Legend
The following review is the opinion of the review's author [Ocur]
and in no way represents the opinions of this website or its staff.
Where to start here? The classes on War of Legends are very unique.
Like everyone has stated, every class has subclasses. Even Ninja,
which really surprised me. I won't go so far as to saying every class
is exactly even, because it isn't. I've yet to see a mud out there
that's par with everything, but I will say it's close. It's very
close. Triskal is always working on something to do with classes or
coding. If there is a class with an abnormally good power that needs
toned down, he gets right on it.
The equipment here is awesome. I've played about 10 GodWars muds in
the 6 years of my mudding career and this is one of the best eq and
class wise. It's uniquely coded and that's what caught my eye. Mobs
randomly drop rare equipment, which stats randomly pop on them so
nothing is ever the same. You can buy unique equipment or relic
equipment at the local relic vendor Locke. Another spiffy thing added
to this mud is the token system. Golden token's are randomly spawned
into mobs around the mud. When you find a token you can either auction
it off or spin it. If you do choose to spin, a Wheel of Chance is spun
and you can win all sorts of stuff (including materia).
One thing that surprised me here was the stat system also. On most
GodWars everyone has the same stats, but on here you can choose to
forge your equipment with your gold to further your stats. You have 6
main stats which are strength, dexterity, wisdom, intelligence,
constituition, and agility. You'll hardly ever find someone with the
same stats, unless they're arcane. Damroll/Hitroll are a huge factor
in this mud, considering you need damroll to further your damcap.
PK here is also quite fun. Most of everyone is fun about it and tries
not to take it too seriously. I've had countless pk fights with a
person and just kept pking, win or lose. It's fun to actually have
people to kill who won't go nuts on you afterward.
The playerbase is the last thing, but probably the best thing I have
to say about this mud. Of course, it's not a huge playerbase yet
because it's so new, but it's one of the friendliest. When I first
logged I had 5 people tell me if I needed help with anything let them
know. Everyone is so quick to jump at helping someone out. The
immortals are great, even talking to you privately about an issue you
have. It's very rare you won't find an answer for your problem from
an imm or just a player. Plus, with clans coming up soon it'll make
the mud even better and I'll further my review then.
I hope this has helped.
