    Default What exactly is Silkroad Online like? x.x

    I played it for about a hour or something before, but never really understood it. So what's the whole gameplay thing like? (Hate to sound like such a nub >: )

    It's different from other games in my opinion...

    Unique systems like: berserk mode, trade/thief/hunter jobs..
    Party Matchmaking..
    And other futures you get to see troughout the game..

    It's well worth playing, I know i'm sticking to it.. wizard/cleric ftw :P

    I don't got any problem with the gfx realy.. it's good for its age..


    There's party monsters which you usualy reguire a party to kill or unless you want to, attack, run, attack, run for like 10minutes..

    Party mobs aranged in order:
    Party(General)
    Party(Champions)
    Party(Giant)

    I've been playing for 74 lvls now and I love it. Game interface is basic and complex all at once. Everything is pretty much easily understood for the most part and when you really get going, you learn all the other complex stuff needed to make a really good character. Either way, it's a really fun game in my opinion.

    Is the login delay thing fixed already? Last time i downloaded and updated the game for like 2 hrs and I couldnt even log in. I played the game when it was released and came back to see that i forgot what server i played in.. so it sucked for me.. really. the grind's also really tough and repetitive so if u cant take it u wont enjoy it.. just my opinion

    "You do?"

    lol Servers always crowded = Takes 3-5 hours to get in. That's 1 in the same reason not 2.

    The logging IS crap however, the game itself is a different story! ^^ In that regard, I do agree the game system can use a lot of work. (E.g. server traffic, botters, dead servers)

    GamePLAY, on the other hand for people that are interested, is pretty outstanding. Character customization is limited but due to an awesome build system on top of an awesome gear system, no two characters will play the same. Also, this is NOT a spam 1,2,3,4 skills game. A players experience and ability to access certain situations with certain skills will set a professional aside from the rookies. That being said, this game does have a learning curve which can seem overwhelming in the beginning but after you get the hang of it, this game is pretty f*ckin beasty! xD Pardon my french.

    It's a fun game when i played it when it was just out, it's a grind though.

    The main point is the silkroad You can choose to be a merchant, thief or a hunter, the merchant walks the route and sells stuff between towns, the hunter protect the merchant and thieves can steal the stuff and sell it.

    You have normal monsters and really big hard ones you have to kill in a group, it's aimed for pvp mostly, but that's hard now because there are allot of high levels now.

    Ok ive had enuf of this game... quests are too grindy and give little exp. And w/o quests u just have to grind on mobs. Also no cash payments = never rich. And it takes effing long to log into the game. Graphics have also fallen out of favour compared to other games, and armors all look the same and are boring.>_> Id say dont play this game unless u got cash for a premium ticket... wasnt as fun as it used to be.

    That is true. Very little legit players out there. However, login isn't as bad anymore and most of the time, you get in first try. If you have to wait, it's like 10-30 mins tops but that hasn't happened to me at all this month so maybe they have fixed something else again. If you do find legit players, the game is actually really fun. I'm currently playing on pluto with my gf, an old friend, and 2 legits i recruited from helios server. We pt play all the time and plvl each other. As long as no one turns into a leecher and starts spamming "plvl me plvl me" all the time, then the game stays fun. ^^

    the second is the grind,it is major grind =/
