It took me some time to give this game a try, all the reviews I saw was plain early game right after character creation, with no in-depth analysis and I didn't feel that this game is for me.
But after playing this for a while, I can clearly say that my standards for an mobile MMORPG has changed drastically. Game is so amazing in so many ways. First and most important one, graphics are stunning and it's not your typical Unity or UE4 built game that tries to look realistic, but sacrifices many features to pack it all in mobile game. Yes, yes, you have auto-battle available, but you ain't gonna get trough with it in Elite dungeons, you have to go manual to pass them successfully. Elemental combos and team building is really important, you actually have to form teams with specific roles to get better results and easier battles. Yes, you can go auto, or form random teams if you're really overpowered (p2w) but as f2p player that hasn't spent a dime, I really have to think and be strategic. Trading system is something rare on mobile MMO, but opens so many opportunities, you can go fishing and trade fish for gold, or you can go resource gathering and trade resources directly, or you can construct buildings on your home island and produce materials out from resources you gather to trade for higher prices or to keep to yourself to later repair or craft equipement, you can craft your gathering tools and grow your own veggies to later use them to cook different foods for HP, SP restoration or boost.
The amount of things that are paying player exclusive, are really small, yes there are some, but most of things are obtainable via gameplay.
Although there are p2w aspects present in game, they are rather small compared to different MMORPG's, more frustrating part of it could be combat based PvP activities where whales dominate the game. But game offers plenty of non-combat PvP activities, like Tiger Race, Narrow Escape, Fishing Derby, Crabi Migration, Home Defense, Beachhead, The Great Imposters, War of Hook, Brawl, etc, that will test your reaction, precision and attention skills.
Tribe system is worth pointing out, there are plenty of tribe activities that help both, player and tribe to grow and could make you feel involved in Tribe growth.
Bad side could be Vigor regeneration. Vigor is used when crafting, cooking or speeding up production times and are really important, I feel that it regenerates too slow and daily limit on regeneration amount is a bit ridiculous, you get (player level)*2 vigor per day, and you get some from activity, but limit which you get from activity is like 30% of total capacity, so you can't refill it in one day without buying items from store, I feel that's a letdown.
Many people complain about daily experience limit, but I like limit, although it could be increased. But it really helps out to players, that don't have whole day to play the game, to keep up in same pace as others that can spend whole day in the game. It's kind of gesture towards fair play, but that's only my opinion.
Overall I give game 4.5 out of 5, but put 5 as there's no 4.5 option, and although it has still space to grow and improve and is not exactly perfection, I feel that 4 stars would be too low.
Love it so far. But i haven't progress so much, few hours into the game and I can tell that I will invest a lot of time in the game. Graphic is splendid, control can be smoother in the future. I am playing in EU due to better ping than NA. JP is the best latency to SEA, but sadly no English speaker available in JP. Hopefully, SEA server will be out soon.
