The following review is the opinion of the review's author [bonecrusher]
and in no way represents the opinions of this website or its staff.
3k is an awesome mud, from the newbie experience all the way into the
high end content and questing. As a newbie you have your own area
called newbie land. This is reserved for newbies and makes getting
familiar with 3k a snap. In addition to this, 3k has newbie helpers,
players dedicated to ensuring the success of newbies. These two
resources make 3k extremely newbie friendly.
Upon graduation from newbie land you are eligible to join a guild.
This is one of many areas where 3k really shines. Each guild has
extensive depth and theme associated with it. A quick rundown of all
the guilds are: changeling, gentech, mage, sii, bards, cyborg, jedi,
monk, witch, bladesingers, elemental, juggernaut, necromancer,
breed, fremen, knight and priest. Some guilds excel at tanking
(defense), while others excel at damage, and others still are more
of a balance. Some guilds are good at the start of a boot run while
others need a bit of work early on, but shine later as a result.
The bottom line is the number of guilds, and variations in the guilds,
along with the depth make it easy to find the guild for you.
Another aspect of 3k is the depth of the areas. I've heard there
is an extensive review process when the wizards add an area into
3k. This maintains the high standards 3k has for areas. As you
explore you begin to realize this depth in the insane amount
of detail a single room has, let alone the area. In addition to this
the various areas within each kingdom (science and fantasy) are
tied together with an overall theme. This only adds to the area
experience. On top of this there is a very extensive quest system
with 3k. So if you tire from battle you can switch it up and quest.
In summary 3k provides a rich experience from newbie land all the
way into high end content. I must admit I have work to do because
I still haven't experienced all that 3k has to offer. I look forward
to seeing you on 3k, and if you want a cool guild to join give
necromancers a try.
