Ok so heres a little review about florensia so that you may get encouraged to play it,it a pretty good game and it kick @ss.
Florensia its a 3D MMORPG similar to perfect world,WoW and that kind of games,so what make florensia different?? Ships!!! yeah we ll get to that later meanwhile I ll star explaining the basics.
Here is the Character Selection Screen,I think you may have up to 6 players but I only got 4,1 of each class.
Then,this is the character creation screen.I won't give the details about each class,intead of that you can see them in the screenshots:
Ok thats about the main screens,now on to the game
There are a lot of things to do like quest,grinding ,fishing,etc
Let's Talk about grinding first,well grinding is not that hard as in other games,but it's a must even at first levels since quest dont give that much exp earlier in the game,I got to level 5 in like 1 hour but you can probably do it in less time if you know what to do...but I didn't.
The combat system its pretty similar to perfect world and ASDA one click on the monster to select and then another to start attacking or you can use one of the skills to start the fight.
This is my fighting a frog
In your face lara croft!
After you kill the monster you have to go near the corpse to get the items,and theres an autoloot mode to make things easiear,so you just get near the dead monster and click once and automatically get all items it dropped,Thats pretty useful!!instead of picking them up one by one...you never know you may get buttsmecks while picking stuff up =/.
Oh now about fishing...fishing seems to be the only activity to do at the moment other than fighing,you need a rod and bait and the skill for it ... yeah you need to waste 5 precious skill points on it,but its needed for some quest so its well worth it.
Ok lets move to stats:
Here you can see your lvl,exp,class,stat points etc.
There are 7 different stats:
:Increases all physical damage incluiding ranged
:Increases Attack speed and evasion.
:Increases Defense, max HP and HP recovery.
:Increases Critical damage
:increases Magic Attack and physical attack of skills
:increases max MP and MP recovery
:Increases Critical rate
See there theres 2 levels?
One with 2 swords emblem and the other one with a rudder?
Well the firt one its Land level,in other words your character level,you level up by killing stuff on land,and the second one its you Sea level or you ship level,you level up by killing monsters while in your ship.
Then you have Ship stats,i dont think theres a lot to explain:
and actions,they are kinda like Smilies:
now the items and equipment screen,you can have 3 different weapons equipped at a time(hell yeah) and you can switch between weapons by
pressing R,about the items you get to bags(probably more in the future,but when you start you get two)
Options,window size,music volume,quit game etc.
Skills: Skills are divided in two sections Land Skills and Sea skills.
Land Skills: are the ones of your character:
Sea Skills are the ones of your ship:
Now Let's talk about quest,well as i said before quest dont give a lot of exp or money at the beginning,so if you you tought you would be lvl 10 by the end of the tuturial,you don't.
This is the quest window,with the quest information:
And this is the quest details,so you just see what do you need to do instead of reading the whole dang story of the npc.
Ok now lets go to the trademark of florensia...Sailing yay!!
You have to meet this weird old pirate Npc Named Stephen to get your first ship and buy more ships if you want,also you can buy ship part! to pimp your ship! Dang rite!
After you are done Pimpin
you can go talk to Ash at the Dock and you will see your ship docked:
Here you can hire a new crew,repair your ship return to land or sail,your crew affects you ship speed and handling your weapons loading time and the time you can sail,if your crew gets tired and hungry you have to go back to land or you ship's speed will decrease and it ll be a pain in the ass to control,you start with a crew of weak wimps mother fackers,but you can buy stronger crews
but of course the stronger crew(full of asteroids consuming,strong sailors) cost a lot to buy and maintain, yeah you have to give them food!cough and steroids cough jk,but you do have to feed em,you can buy food with ash btw.
ok now lets explore the seas!!
see those navy blue parts?? thats your weapon range,you can only fire your cannon within those spots,but you can also can have your crew to fire their weapons if the monster or ship gets close to yours.you control your ship by pressins W(forward),A(left),D(right) and S(stop)...that takes me to next and final rant...
its so dang hard to control!!!come on,especially when trying to hit a target,you have to lowered your speed and have a bullseye to hit a target,cause it need to be in the dark blue spots remember? and if it moves while shooting the cannon you are screwed,the monster will go aggro even if your miss and it will start raping your ship and crew,and it will take some time to get some speed to run away so your only option is to use your crew's shotguns to kill the mother f.. and its really anoying to get back to the dock to repair your ship,but anyways there are different types of ships as classes,some are fast but weak,others are stronger but very slow so try to party when you are out in the sea,especially if your going to another island and you will have to travel a very long distance,cause theres aggro monsters like pirate ships that will rape you and your wimps crew and then trow you to the sharks.
Anyways thats pretty much its all aspecs about the game,if you have any other doubts please post here and i ll try to add more stuff.
now about my rate for this game..dun dun dun
Graphics are awesome,and the fact i can play this game with my Geforce 7000M its even greater :3.
its ok,its not repetitive to the point to bother you,but its not that catchy to whistle the songs during the shower either :P.
The controls for your character are ok,but when it comes to sailing...may the sailor cookie god protect you,why cant you control your ship with the mouse!?!?!? wryyyyyyyyyyyy D:
theres some moments when I lag,but it's pretty good as long as 20 or more people start spamming skills at the same time D:,but the servers are hosted in Germany so what did you expect?
Grinding is not hard,but the it come to sea grinding IT's Hell D:<,and the fact there are not many quest to level up sucks.
Overall i would give it a 8 out of 10
the game its awesome,and you can deal with its flaws,and they will probably improved em with future content.
