I’m trying out Blade and Soul Russian version. It’s open for international players, and has English patch.
It’s really “first impression”, my highest level character is just lvl 10, I didn’t get to crafting yet (lvl 11) or skill specialisation.
There are four races: Jin, Gon, Lyn and Kun. There are 6 classes divided between the races: Assassin, Blademaster, Kung-Fu Master, Destroyer, Summoner and Forcemaster. Summoner is Lyn-exclusive, Destroyer is Gon-exclusive, Assassin is Jin-exclusive, ther rest is shared. Kun is gender-locked – only women. It’s a pity there is such a limitation. Since I wanted to play summoner, I had to choose a doll with crooked legs.
The character customisation is quite advanced. You can choose type of voice, pupils, colour of eye whites, the age of a characters (wrinkles), bust size, chin position, etc. Or use one of the pre-made body builds (including anorectic and bulky) and appearances. Good enough for me.
The world is mostly open with a bit of instances (dungeons and homes). You can teleport to another place by just clicking on a map (and creating i-cing circle) if you have visited this place before. You can go through the world unbothered by other players, if that’s your wish.
