Rappelz is a 3D fantasy MMORPG. At first I thought it was just one of those "kill, make money, buy new armour, kill, make money, buy new armour" sort of games but this turned out to be something COMPLETELY different. You have to pay close attention where you stick your attribute points and job points, that makes a big difference in how strong your character will be. To obtain a skill it cost you job skill points which you also need to change your characters job. And that helps you be aware of your character at all times.
The game is 3D and has very good graphics for a free game. Great graphics with great skill and magic skill effects that can't be beaten by any other MMO.
Pretty good music while having awesome sound effects when you are fighting monsters.
Unbelievable gameplay that match up to many games such as World of Warcraft, Anarchy Online, and Lineage 2. I found the combat system to be one of my favorite features of the game. It wasn't the combat alone that enthralled me, actually; it was more the character progression system that drives the mechanics of conflict in Rappelz. The skill system was open-ended, customizable and best of all, simple. You simply concurrently earn skill experience as you fight. You can spend this to purchase passive and active abilities, as well as increase your job level to unlock more options on the skill tree. The great range of skills adds a decisive edge to the warfare.
Great community, but many scammers which use a hard-to-understand personal shop system. But with most or any free to play (f2p) game out there you will run into a lot.
