Well now that the next iCBT is announced to happen this October and will last for like a month. I thought it's time to post something about it here in CL. (Last time was just a week long) You can check out the announcement by clicking the logo above.
So what is Tree of Savior (ToS)? It's a Lithuanian inspired hack 'n slash MMORPG. The hero/heroine (you) are set on an adventure to find out what ever happened to the goddesses that seemed to have abandoned the world, and why a big ass tree suddenly grew at the center of the capital and crushing everything nearby. People have fled the place but were attacked demons that were once just an ordinary shit.
The game is very grindy somewhat like Ragnarok Online but also gives you the option of doing quests to level up. The maps are 75% persistent. Quest boss are unrepeatable instances (except when one party member hasn't finished the quest yet), Field Bosses appear as a map event. Real instanced bosses come near end game as some of the kCBT players reported. Lots of content in the early~mid game that you wouldn't mind being a mid level for while. Heck in iCBT everybody was enjoying but the experience rate was heavily gimped so we can only play at early parts of the game. Speaking of levels, the game is capped at 500 with a possibility of getting an increase to 600.
A mechanic a bit familiar to Ragnarok Online players is the Job Level, or here in ToS, Class Level. Apart from your Base level you also have this Class level that you increase in order to change or improve your class. Classes are... very complicated to explain so here's a simulator that you can play with lol.www.tosbase.com/tools/skill-simulator/
Apart from the classes that are available and seen in the town, there also exists "Hidden" classes like Pied Piper (I have no idea what this is, I just know it exists and it's in the trailer) another are the Templars who are responsible for guilds (very vague as they are hidden and my "week" of playing the game hasn't given me the opportunity to look for them, I just know they're there) and the last that I know of are the Shepherds, I've seen them in the wiki's but I have no idea who they are, they're just there...........I'm sorry. But hey, they're hidden!
There's also an exploration point system, where the game tracks who have explored most in the game, like talking to NPC's, 100%-ing the map etc. This has no effect in the last iCBT, who knows how will they use this in the future.
Who's behind ToS? This game is made by the same people who created Granado Espada, imcGames. As some of you might know, their current CEO, Kim Hakkyu, was the former CEO of Gravity back when Ragnarok Online was still in the P2P system and (correct me if I'm wrong) was against changing it into a F2P one. Also, SoundTeMP.
they are adding 5000 more people in the iCBT2 the next beta is gonna be open for everybody who will register from now until October 19, so if you're interested, then follow the thread in the site. And if you got in, see you in the game!~
