End of Time is the mud that I just keep coming back to. Even if I step away for a while due to real life, I find myself logging into End of Time again. Why?
The game is still in active development - new areas, skills, quests are worked on constantly. The change notes are at 399 and growing and there minor tweaks all the time that don't even go into those notes. The changes aren't just thrown in at random and do nothing - most of the changes improve the ability to build out areas or directly impact players. The implementor is open to ideas from all over and puts his own ideas up to get input from the players.
The story and background. If you have the time, check out help history and help timeline. The game is a mixture of Final Fantasy and the Chrono Series, and a lot of effort went into making the EoT world sensible in that framework. And just like the games, you can talk to practically everybody. While using "talk" is how a large portion of questing is done, it also teaches you more about the world and the attitudes of the various people. As the hero there is even a broader story for you to embark on that will take you through the different areas, learn the different cultures, and find your way to amazing and hidden new places.
The already indepth system and the variety between the different classes:
Other reviews have already gone into how amazing magic has incorporated elements and combinations into the spell system. What wasn't mentioned was the amazing summons that mages get access to. Like most games, mages are super squishy but the access to summons helps them survive... while they still have mp. On the other side of spells are the beefy knights with access to sabre spells, allowing them to make use of the elemental system alongside their melee combat.
On the other side are the far more physical classes of thieves and fighters. Fighters are a straight-forward melee class at first but branch out to bushido for samurai or blitzes for brawlers. Thieves on the other hand are good at the obvious backstab, but they also get so much more. With access to traps, sniping with the bow or thrown dagger, and even fighting drunk with a gun for their off hand. But remember to make use of your skills because you will need them.
So come on over, create, quest and explore. Join me for drinks and a cruise over the world in the Morning Glory airship. Play Rock-Paper-Scissors and Triple Triad. Join hands with Guardia, Shin-Ra and the Empire or forge your own story in the world of Dissidia.
Come on over, we look forward to seeing you!
