Managed to get a 7 day trial pass. Nice graphics and runs smooth which is always a challenge with MMO's. Kind of reminds me of what Age of Conan should have been in terms of graphics and combat system. Enjoying the fact that I have no idea whats going on in an MMO for a change. I've never liked Asian-style MMO's but this one seems a bit different. So far so good. Rolled a beserker and wizard, both seem pretty fun to play so hard to chose which one to go with.

Having played all classes at the very least up to 20, Berserker is SO FAR down the list I'd happily have it drop off completely. They're utter shit. I don't know whether potion chugging is supposed to be a mechanic with them, but generally speaking, all the other character classes I can use potions as "Oh shit" buttons, not an actual requirement to play the class with no downtime. I tend to equate having to use a potion with me doing something wrong.

I'm yet to see a Berserker user who doesn't complain when they start getting low on potions, for the upteenth time for the grinding session.

Wizard is BDO-EZ mode. you'll get to 50 in no time.

I've got an MMO sized hole in my life at the moment.

How playable is BDO for australians? where are the servers, whats the lag like and how much of a disadvantage is it to us in PvE (and to lesser extent, PvP).

I'd love to try out this game if anyone has a spare 7 day pass.

From the short time I've played I'm getting about 150-200ms latency. Servers are in West Coast US I believe. Haven't noticed any lag issues with PvE but have not tried any PvP yet.

At least no one in the guild is claiming that BDO is boring. I'm still trying to figure out cooking.

I'm still dreading getting into Alchemy. Storage space is a premium, and I've been throwing out anything not wood or ore.

Ended up biting the bullet and buying this. Even though its pretty grindy there are so many other aspects to it which seem new and different to a lot of other MMO's.

Really loving the combat, its probably my favorite part, I wanted Age of Conan to to have combat like this, they should remake it with this combat and graphics.

Music/sound/environments are better than any other MMO out there, especially the weather effects. LOTRO would be the only other MMO which comes close in terms of atmosphere/environs. Still rough around the edges but I love the fact it isn't at themepark and you are meant to just do whatever you want.

Little things like the pathing mechanic are nice little touches, and losing XP when you die are things I like to see.

They need to make more sandboxy PvE MMO's like this.

Made a forestry map. Might be useful to some.

Also a levelling areas map to go with the forestry map. So knowing which areas to avoid if you're not at that level yet.
Cheers for these maps mate they are coming in really handy.

Currently on a 7 day trial myself, really enjoying it so far. Combat for Sorcerer seems really complex, still trying to come to grips with it.

With the Mediah Expansion, players can rise to new levels of power and achieve greatness like never before.

Mediah Expansion Features:

- World size increased by 30%.
- Over 1,000 new quests.

Dwarfed by the server boss who can't take on thousands of players at a time.
