- Summary: A chorus of shouts for Aion 2.0 broke out last week. Though there was no exciting confirmation message from NCsoft, people who was anticipated to some updated service and balance was a little down but the whole Aion fans community erupted into a loud buzz.

Unlike Aion, Mortal Online released a brand-new graphic update version and launched Open Beta Test immediately after this. Personally I missed its new water effects, and you won't miss this. We'll show you Mortal Online's screenshots on next pages. If you're curious about the comparison of water effects among MMOs, check out our reports about water effects in Cataclysm, Aion and others.

N.E.O Online is developed by SONOV, the developer behind Shaiya
Online, via its game portal. N.E.O Online is a free-to-play fantasy MMORPG that
gives gamers the most control over the journey.
In NEO Online, you don’t have to stick with ONE occupation while playing, unlike all other existing online games. While most games force players to stay within the same occupation throughout the game, NEO Online lets you continue to earn skills through upgrading your level without sticking to ONE Occupation. Players can acquire and utilize items and skills without any restriction upon their occupations. A player can become a warrior with a sword, a wizard or a wizard-warrior using both sword and magic.
Level doesn’t necessarily represent the strength of each character. The freedom to develop your character enables everyone to create their own unique character according to personal preferences. Based on how player distribute capacity points to raise attributes, skills that have been learn, grade of fair stones, and how fair stones are reinforced and appraised, each character will be able to develop its own advantages and irreplaceable value.
N.E.O Online is designed to bring new gaming experience to gamers.
In addition to battling monsters, gamers are able to enjoy the game through
various living skills including collecting, mining, weaving, fishing, cooking
and much more. Those skills are necessary for certain quests that can give
reward of skill points. The dyeing technique brings numerous possibilities to
style your hero. Exclusive color palette is offered for creating unique costume.
The manufacturing skill even provides an alternative way to acquire splendid
items. Players can produce items such as food, weapon and fair stone. For those
gamers willing to live a ranch life, N.E.O Online offers more than just
beautiful scenery; it is also a great place to enjoy many recreational
Crafting unique items has always been a lot of fun in MMO games and N.E.O Online is no exception. Fair stones can be found throughout the mysterious world and those are essentials for reinforcing weapons or armors. A successful reinforcement would increase the power of item depending on type of fair stone, which can generate thousands of combination of add-on attributes. Moreover, when obtaining high-grade items or fair stones, players can make an appraisal to release additional values.
Monsters in N.E.O Online have THREE types of battle tendencies; peaceful, non-aggressive and aggressive.
- Peaceful Type:Peaceful monsters are labeled in green color. They don’t attack or retaliate; instead, they simply run away.
