    Seems good, I've been playing it quite often now and is nice. I've been playing Control Wizard (lvl 13) for now but I also plan to make a trickster.

    I'm playing a Trickster now. The game is nice, combat is really good, too bad there is close to no immersion though.

    Edit: Stealth mechanics are nice.

    Just to inform you, the publishers of this game (Perfect World Entertainment, or PWE for short) are terrible. At least from my experience in their other online games.

    But still, I'll be interested in joining this MMO. Are there any restrictions for free players?

    Content wise, no. You are restricted on two characters though. (just make more accounts!?).

    You can try it for free.
