The priestess Isil fought during the War of Reclamation, a battle that saw the Demon Lord and his Demon army find their way to Starland when the Demon King was summoned by a powerful wizard named Ballan that possessed his body. The priestess sacrificed herself and the Dragon Lord that was a bass Stephen of good was forced to transform into Starmoon crystals to seal the Demon Kings armies from the ground. At her martyrdom Lady Isil was worshipped as a Goddess and now you stand as a new Regimental Chief tasked with seeking out a priestess that is but the first step of a long epic journey…
Players can choose from three classes, each class has its own skills that can be learned and upgraded through the acquisition of Skill Points and each class handles combat in different ways offering up new tactics and strategy:
The Warrior - a powerful and physical combatant that focuses on melee-based attacks using a huge two-handed sword, they have strong defences and are exceptional front-line fighters capable of defending the weaker classes that typically hold up the rear
The Shooter - these formidable musketeers are equipped with huge rifles capable of eliminating enemies at long range with high crit rate attacks, typically rear guard formation fighters they are able to act as front-line combatants when needed to hold back melee fighters
The Magician - defensively weak on the front line these fighters can be extremely vulnerable and so will typically hold up at the back of a formation with more powerful defensive classes at the front, however they are far from week and can churn out huge damage and devastating spells as well as unique healing capabilities to help their companions
There are a variety of features focused on fighting against the challenging AI, typically in the form of story driven quests gained by the various NPC’s across the world players will be sent in to solo dungeons/areas to complete a task and destroy the enemies within.
