I hope it's not bad of me to revive this thread, since it seems like with the end of Closed Beta, Open Beta is on the horizon. After the stress test, that is--
Aura Kingdom Launch Schedule
I recently finished up the last of Closed Beta after testing 4 characters and researching on builds...
tl;dr: if you liked Eden Eternal, minus the class change feature, then you will love this game. Combat requires some maneuvering to take minimal damage, and things die super fast so it's also faster paced.
However, the game literally holds your hand up till endgame, with everything being automated with the click of a button--auto move, auto quest completion. There are some side achievements/quests that add variety, but the main quest line requires that you have something to do on the side, because all you will be doing is clicking the quest tracker on the side when you are not 2-shotting things. At times, I liked that because I was lazy, and at other times, I just wanted to do
something, instead of being a quest bot.
I do like the pets though. They do a ton of damage and make the healer class much more bearable to play (esp when compared to some games like RO2 T_T). There is also a healing pet if you go DPS. And of course, who can forget Rainbow Dash
Leveling is super fast. You will feel bad-ass in about 2 hours.
Overall, recommend for people looking for a casual MMO. It's a very easy game to play, but hard to master, I suppose.
