Perfect World has begun to get a little stale for me. I find myself becoming bored with game and tired of the quests and grinding. So, I decided to try a new game called Runes of Magic, another free MMORPG. This does not mean I'm completely switching games. I didn't want to flood your screen with annotations (I don't have a mic right now), so here's what's going on in each of the video clips.
1st Clip: Runes of Magic has a dual class system that allows you to choose a secondary class at level 10, which can easily be done in 2-3 days. If anyone has played Guild Wars, the class system is pretty similar to that. After you get your secondary class you can choose to completely ignore it, or level it up to the level of your primary class. When your both of your classes are level 15, you can then get elite skills. Also, you have 2 sets of equipment, 1 for each class.
2nd Clip: This is one of the biggest cities in Runes of Magic, however there usually aren't too many people here. Most people are somewhere out in the fields killing monsters, or completing other quests.
3rd Clip: There are loads of quests in Runes of Magic. The first window open is my quest list, and the second window open, with the map, has a list of all available quests on the left side. The quests in Runes of Magic, for the most part, are really fun. Here's an example: One of the first quest lines you get is from a girl named Lola who asks you to go on a treasure hunt. She gives you clues as to where the treasures are, such as, "Go to the place where it is very noisy and people cough in the dust. Also, watch out for big blades." Once you find the treasure, you talk to her and get the next clue. For the final clue, she gives you a map with some clues and co-ordinates to the location of Howling Mountain's greatest treasure.
4th Clip: There are tons of armor and equipment to get in this game, I've found plenty of good equipment from monster drops, but usually I get my equipment from quest rewards. Some of the equipment comes in sets, like my Logar set. You get a piece of each set for completing a certain quest line in Logar. After you get 2 pieces, you get a bonus, I got +80 HP. Then when you get 3 pieces, you get an even better bonus, in addition to the +80 HP, I got +9 dexterity, and +25 physical attack.
5th Clip: Combat is very entertaining. You are free to move during combat without losing your target lock. I've only fought 1 boss so far, but it was a long fight. It took me, alone, 12-14 minutes to kill this boss, luckily, I'm a Knight/Priest, so I was able to heal myself during the battle.
6th Clip: There are also lots of upgradable skills. The skills are really cool. I have this one skill that is a buff on myself, and every time I hit an enemy, it puts a light seal on them. When they have 3 light seals on them, I can break the seals and regain mana. There are class skills, and class-specific skills. The class-specific skills you can only use when that class is your primary class.
Alright, I know that was a lot of info, but bear with me 'cause I have a little bit more.

I will have a poll on my blog about whether or not to start making Runes of Magic videos.
