  • I've been playing this for the last 2 days. Has some problems of skills not being enabled such as poison arrow and a lot of fire spells. The elementals (mages) are probably the worst class. The fighters are pretty good. I would say: be a healer or one of the spirit healers because every party needs a healer, no one wants to be one, and it means you'll win 4+ battles in a row, constantly. I'm a big Unreal Tournament 2004 player, but I am going to really look forward to this game! A lot of UT2k4 players I know bought this game when it came out and got bored of it but on this demo you can't play anything but PvP so I can't tell. Also, it will be interesting to see how powerful players fight each other later because right now, 90% of players are just using a default skillset (and they always put in 2-3 useless skills when there could be useful ones).
