I just noticed that this MMO became available yesterday on Steam. It's from the same creators of Runes of Magic. It's listed as published and developed by Sony Online Ent., so I'm guessing that only means that some senior ex-staff from the RoM team worked on this. It sounds a bit like Anne McCaffrey's Dragon Riders of Pern world. Its SOE, so I'm a bit skeptical of how f2p it is, but hey - it doesn't cost anything to try.  slywink

From what I read on the forums, they'll have to do some quick fixing if they're going to have a hope in Hell of making any profit. The game sounds like a bit of a train wreck on release in terms of performance. Gamers with decent gaming rigs are reporting fps in the single digits or teens.

Yup, definitely sounds more like a SOE game than one from the studio behind Runes of Magic.

It's your usual Asian grind MMO poorly translated into Engrish and then published by SoE for reasons I personally can't figure out.

Its only benefits are the taming of 'dragons' (only the trailer shows what most people in the US consider 'dragons' - what you find all over are anything but) and the fact that it has 4 sliders that affect boob size and 2 that affect ass size.

You can make some very...monsterously bad freaks of nature with this thing. Just...trust me on this.

Outfits aren't attached properly to the body at all (they clip into your body right during character creation) and the entire game just screams 'generic boring grindfest'.

Stay away. Unless you want to train your own 'dragon' from right out of the (poor) tutorial and fly around for a while.

gave it a shot.  Not very good.  Lots of early quest bugs and its very generic.  The dragon aspect of the game, basically training and collecting may be fun but I doubt that it will end up being more than a grind.  I may stick with it for awhile but finding 3 starter quests that are bugged doesnt give me much hope.
