Shaiya is developed by Sonov Entertainment, a famous toy manufacturer in Korea. This adult MMORPG costs more than 4 billion won and two years time to develop. There are two factions in Shaiya, White Elf and Dark Elf waging war with each other in order to control the Goddess Holy Land. There are more than 120 skills and more than 20 different classes in the game. The races not belonged to White Elf and Dark Elf are not allowed to enter the maps for these two factions. Each race has its own birthplace, which avoids the situation that too many players log in the same map, so that it won’t be too crowded for newbs to level up.
White Elf is comprised of two races, Elf and Human. Elf can choose to be paladin, archer or magician and Human can choose to be fighter, defender or priest. On this fantasy land, the mission for White Elf is to guard the light in the Shaiya world. At the same time, Elf is a fairly popular class among players.
Dark Elf is consisted of two races too, Distor and Bell. Distor can choose to be soldier, guardian or hunter and Bell can choose to be heretic, assassin or seer. Dark Elf has always been envying and resenting White Elf?s power.
