Delays...and Pirate King Online

Hey all,

Very sorry for the recent lack of posts, I've been swamped with midterm projects, those should come to a close this weekend and I can resume posting as normal.

First off, as I stated before, I'm currently playing Pirate King Online (www.piratekingonline.com), its in open beta phase and will not be wiping after open beta. It is also a F2P game (Free to play), which means it comes with a cash store. But this is one of the few games out there where the cash store does not create imbalances, just saves a little time, and it allows us to play for free, so its a good trade off.

Basically, the thing that got me playing this game is the stat system, its very similiar to Ragnarok Online(RO) with the exception of the luk stat. They function in almost the same way, and they affect your characters abilities deeply, and no one build appears to dominate. Thats my little checklist on stat systems, and its passes thus far.

There is a newbie class, which goes to 4 first classes, and then onto second classes (much much like RO, some classes can become 2 different second classes and so on..). The game very easy to start initially, and you can quest until (Ingame ship, being attacked by defender)
your eyes bleed if you wanted too. The combat is again much like RO, point and click, same as movement. Skill use is the same also, however you must buy skill books (like WoW) to initliaze them, then you may level them up to 10 with your skill points (one per level).

Aside from the character development system, the forging and compounding system is quite deep also, including sockets (like RO again) and using gems, which you can find, buy, create by compounding other items, and so on. Also, there is a basic "life skills" system, including mining, fishing, wood chopping, sailing (Character ingame, wearing "costume") (Yar, Pirates!).


The unique and intriguing parts of the game include buying and equipping your ship (used to navigate the seas, and other tasks, such as war). And the guild vs guild system is quite interesting, from what I've read and heard (have yet to participate in one), its much like a DOTA from Warcraft 3, yet it includes the sea also. The goal is to destory the opposing guilds base, through land and/or sea attacks (landing your guildies on the oppositions island is a good idea in general). However, there is buildings such as towers that will try to stop you. These can be both damaged and repaired (using materials you find off of local monsters, along with temporary buffs they drop). There is also a gold wager involved, so it should be interesting.

Thats all I have to report on for now, until I get higher level, currently not even second class (evil school), but I'll try and keep you updated!

No rating yet, not a final review. All I can say is give it a try.

This is an incredibly well thought out and useful review. The writer of it must be an intelligent and insightful person who people should just hand money to as they pass on the street. Even now as I read it I feel a strong urge to send the poster monetary reward. You RedFlame, are my hero.

I thought this game would be an interesting mix of mmoRPG and RTS. Also pirates are cool. I had a couple of questions though.

1) Are the classes and character development up to par with other games of this genre?

2) Is the trading aspect any fun, or a repetitave task that has no value?

3)Can you go further into depth the island RTS part of the gameplay, I don't understand it very well, and to me it seems like the funnest part of the game.

Thanks alot for reading over it, and thanks for putting up this site.

Djelloul: The Mafia has been portrayed in many ways in books and movies, and I don't have a quarrel with these portrayals, because the Mafia is a work of many facets. The advert designs can range from being simple text affairs that are very basic, which also tend to be less expensive, to the more expensive, fully graphic designed adverts with photo quality images that can take up a whole page of the newspaper. Newspaper production is known to be the most lucrative and respected industry in the modern age. Sometimes local PR can attract better business for you than an article in Indian media. I want them to be thrilled by the idea that each of us is capable of running into high adventure on every street corner and in every friendship.

The Updated funny celebrity gossips mostly consists of on the scandals
of famous or popular celebrities like James waltz dating with David Arquette.

These make great funny pictures, and can be as blatant as the example I just gave, or as simple as a
spelling mistake. A few young superstars have made their name just from being spread across the
internet in videos and photos.

Or maybe you look at it from a monetary standpoint and decide that
Guy Ritchie and Madonna divorce was worse because they were married so long and have children
and there is a lot of money involved. Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan
had a rough battle, when the movies related to them were released at the same time.
However, today, the wedding photographers capture photographs of moments that are precious and that
you would cherish all your life; and, when you least expects
the wedding photographer to capture you.

Thats why Indian Hindi papers are very popular in all corners of India.
When Muslims and Christians weren't in good terms, Christian monks believe to have escaped the persecution and found a shelter within the walls of the persecuted tombs and temples of ancient Egypt, but ironically, those monks have ripped many of the reliefs on those tombs because they distracted them from practicing their religion, not to mention that the reliefs represented "fake" religion that they didn't want to be associated with.
This is where the online websites play quite a vital role.
Do you have any of your own experiences to share with
readers from all over the Christian community. Studies about Egyptians lend itself to
activities such as mummy-making,hieroglyphics tablets or
Egyptian jewelry.

Yeast infection cannot be eliminated if only treated with a one-dimensional treatment like antibiotics, creams, pills, or
detox diets. Andrews allegedly sold apartments of for a non-existent Turkish Mediterranean resort in partnership
with his brother Nigel and sister-in-law Margaret.
Her book doesn't just give a temporary quick fix, but provides all the information necessary for understanding, combating and ultimately curing yeast infection. The following year, at the age of thirty-eight, he matriculated at the Louisville Dental College in Kentucky, where he remained until he was graduated. There is use of only the best of natural vegetarian ingredients like rehydrated textured soya, wheat flour and wheat protein, vegetable oil that has salt and some fatty acid emulsifier namely mono-glycerides and di-glycerides.

It currently has less than a 2% refund rate which means for every 100 people only 2 people request a refund. As someone who believes in natural healing methods more than the traditional medicine which has its own side effects, I liked the fact that she focuses on natural methods of healing from yeast infection. It is also possible that if CLASS recipients are eventually enrolled in AHCCCS (Arizona's Medicaid program), AHCCCS will benefit financially by receiving a share of the cash payment made by the CLASS program. Yet again, new advances and engineering make these procedures rapid and helpful, and this cuts down on the value tremendously.
