Magic skills yield higher damages to the enemies


Mage class uses magic skills to the fullest. A very good companion for a party mission or quest because of its numerous buffing skills it has. Though its magic attack hits a large amount damage, in many occasion, mages distance themselves from the enemies due to its weak armor. Isn't that a more tradition MMORPG games? I bet it is not . The unique feature of Luna Online is on the skill tree ability of a character that incorporates hybrid skills for character you play with. Hybrid skill lets you mixed a skill from other job that helps you battle enemies. A mage can be a strong tanker as the game goes on or a rogue can cast a strong skill spell.

Great attack effects


In playing this game or any 3-D MMORPG , familiarity of control is very much important. Luna online has a very conventional approach. Skill slots are being alloted to numeric keys for ease of use. Wheel mouse is for zooming in/out the camera view and right click hold for the camera angles for better view . Left-click is for the direction or movement of the character. The fancy theme appearance attracts younger gamers, around 12 to 19 years old and mostly girls. But some nostalgic fans of the pioneer game Ragnarok find it deja vu. As they told me that it is fun to play this type of game again. Sounds and special effects blended well with the game concept. Though the nature of MMORPG is hack and slash , Luna Online does not have any violent effect for the gamers. Its more of a pillow fight compare it with a more mature online games. Thus it is really recommended for younger gamers .

Flying skill is good for faster navigation


Upon receiving the installation copy in CD, I quickly started the setup program and registered a username. This is a free to play MMO game so I don't have to worry about monthly subscription. From then I kept grinding my character to level as high as possible within 2 week. But with limited time I end up having a level 46. Not bad at all. It can have 2 AoE's (area of effect). Due to not knowing the advantages of each race, my character end up messing it up and try to start again with another race. It is really important to know what skills are characters capable of. So that in a battle mode gamers can really maximize the use of skills. It will make a ton of fun once that skills are being obtained. Awesome gaming effects are display once skills are used by the players. As compare to an ordinary combat attack of a character, skills can result to a significant amount of damages. In Luna, players that reach the above 50 level, they have the luxury of high-level skill that can work to our advantage. So resuming the level 46 has a better mileage and when it reaches the above 50 mark, it can be a good time to try the party-recommended quest. Start slashing and casting skills and enjoy every game-time moments.
