Oz Online offers a breath of fresh air in todayâs combat-ruled MMORPG landscape. Instead of forcing players to compete against each other, this game promotes community and friendship by concentrating on friendly interactions and social gatherings. Players who decide to participate in the unique system of Oz Personal have a much easier time making friends online, at the same time getting to know some of them in real-life.
The driving force of Oz Online is in fishing. This is how players advance in the game, earning social points and Gold. While the early levels only serve to introduce the players to Oz-style fishing, it can be a thing of art at higher levels. There are skills that enhance various aspects of a playerâs fishing prowess, and seeking the best spots for different types of fish easily takes a life of its own. Forming a party with other players also speeds up the process of advancing as a fisher, and finding a willing gamer is never a problem.
There are numerous ways of spending the wealth gained through fishing. Literally thousands of customizable items exist, from clothing, hairstyles, accessories, and many others. Even item combinations are possible to allow for the creation of rare and interesting items. Players may own a house for themselves as well, free to choose from many pieces of furniture and hardware for decoration. No character looks the same; people soon recognize a player by the way she looks alone.
