The player can fight solo or in parties, participate in social events including last-man-standing PvP events on distant islands and much more. There is magic, projectile and melee weapons. The characters have their equipment paperdolled in harmony with each other, equipment including shoulder armour, cloaks, helmets, amulets, quivers, shields, armour, weapons, belts, gloves, boots and rings in which can all be worn without any cluttered look whatsoever. Characters can be personalized to the players own choice through many hairstyles and colours.
