WonderKing is no longer being hosted from what I can tell and it's unlikely it will open back up as they state they need the developers.
I guess it's dead for good now. Removed it.
Would you be able to consider Mabinogi and Shin Megami Tensei: Imagine Online to be "action-MMOs"? They have a sort of "combo" and rock-paper-scissors style combat. There isn't any WASD movement, but it's far from the generic auto-attack, if you ask me.
I also want to note that there are two action MMO's in development you may want to add to that list. The first one is Soul Worker Online, and the other one is Last Online, which screams Devil May Cry. Both look really cool, and I think they should be added to the list with a notation stating they are still in development.
When players look for action MMORPGs they usually want real action (& playable with Gamepad) and not just fast paced combat, that's why I didn't include those here. The "non-target" aspect is also important. Afaik in Mabinogi you need to target the enemy. Not sure on Megaten, because I haven't played that one.
I can add the action MMORPGs to the list, but you need to provide info if they are instanced or not (another aspect that is very important to most people looking for action MMORPGs).
Both darkfall and mortal should be added to the list, darkfall is as action based as you get.
both are p2p/3d/open world.
Hmm, added them. Though I'm not really sure if those were actual RPGs.
dungeon strikers, its in korean though. its like a blend of dragon nest and diablo. made by eyedentity the company behind dragon nest.

TBH... LOCO= MOBA, like Smite only that smite is more polished.
Alright, moved it to MOBA. Thought it had MMORPG elements.
Have we mentioned Berkanix yet?
I think it's time that we start getting some DmC/Bayonetta-quality action MMORPGs with full character customization and open-world features. Thus far, my favorite is still Vindictus, but even it has limitations due to its instanced dungeon crawling structure. Still, the graphic quality, story and character development, and extensive fashion-centric customization is superior to the rest, in my opinion.
I haven't had a chance to try Rusty Hearts since its Reborn updates, but that certainly looks like it has potential beyond the beta I played originally. It's just too bad that Rusty Hearts has such limited character customization, but at least the story and gameplay are a step in the right direction.

So Berkanix is an open-world action MMORPG? Does it have a release date? Or is it already out?
Hmm, I'll wait until there is a definite release date before adding it to the list.
Mini fighter online2d instanced fighter, but its dead..
giga slave/metal assault 2d shooter maybe away from NA
Is there a video playlist or lots of embedded videos for this list?

Playing (listed by order of activity)
RogueGE -- Fallen Earth -- Vindictus
Steam ID: dlgames1, PM for Skype
I don't want to search for each? A good gameplay video is surprisingly hard to find. And links in the op would be REEALLY nice. In the mean time : http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...B&feature=plpp
Berkanix looks pretty targety: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ZSA34ex5es

I added only Battle of Destiny for now as the others aren't released in English language yet.
It's not that hard to find gameplay videos, just visit youtube and enter the name of the MMORPG and "gameplay" as a separate word behind it and you will usually always find good gameplay videos.
- Warhammer: Wrath of Heroes / MOBA / open beta
- Dragon's Prophet / 3D open world / upcoming
- Otherland / 3D open world / closed beta
- ArcheBlade / 3D lobby / closed beta
- Marvel Super Hero Squad Online / 3D instanced
- Zone4 / 3D instanced
- GetAmped 2 "... updated version of Splash Fighters" -MMOHut
- FreeJack / 3D instanced
- APB: Reloaded
- Return of Warrior / 3D open world (?)
Please verify ^^
P.S. Is C9 still considered "upcoming"? I left that on your
visitor messages almost two months ago; just wanted to touch base on that.
I can verify Z4, Getamped2 and Warhammer:wrath. Of these W:WoC shoots itself in the face in the stupidest way while GA2 requires asian reflexes and Z4 is unique but graphics and sync eh. MOAR MOOOBA: http://www.listal.com/list/dota-like
May I ask that you separate the genre of games that are similar to dragon nest / raiderz / tera / etc from games that do not have a mouselook option (Like metin, sto, etc)
I have spent too much time searching for games such as tera(with the true action combat, mouselook non-targeted attacks and such) and most times you have to go as far as download and play a mmo before u discover it has no true mouselook setting. I would not be sure what you would label them as, but they are not the same. (I guess unlocked camera, free mouse?? idk) - just don't much like playing a game where I have to hold down right mouse button to turn the camera. (I like to look where i face, and have both buttons for skills and such)
Games I enjoyed but burnt out quickly both because of lack of content, and because i pretty much played them to death, were tera, raiderz, dragon nest, vindicus, etc. I would like to somehow find a way to 'describe' what type of games they are that separates them from other 'similar' games that do not have mouselook(Sorry for repeating self, just trying to explain better)
Anyways thanks for the list it has helped me a great deal in weeding out bad choices(for me) and helped find something to do between mmo fixes :P

I don't know what's so hard without going to youtube and enter the game name there, though.
I'll update the list as suggested by ( ˘ ≥˘)♥. If there is something wrong with the games listed by him, please tell me.
Are there more of the "upcoming" listed games released by now?
