If characters in Aion had antennas instead of wings, Faxion would have antennas, too.

@pid Yes, because the concept of wings on angels and demons is of course ridiculous.

If this game looks, plays and feels even slightly like Chronicles of Spellborn, I already love it. CoS's demise truly was one of the bigger tragedies in MMO history.

@Lenn
I agree that wings are pretty standard on celestial/demonic beings, but it simply *smells* much like Aion.
I haven't played it or whatever, so I can't tell if it feels like that other game. I hope not and can very well understand that there may be much fun in moving in 3D, as opposed to crawling along the map in 2D.
But, still... those are wings and "that other game" comes immediately to my mind :)

I'm pretty sure angels and demons have had wings for a long... long... long time. That said, the wings in Faxion don't necessarily allow you to fly but instead glide. It's about taking gliding around a little but not permanently flying. Although, if you jump off at certain spots, you can glide for a bit. Granted, to glide, you must use Stamina so when you're out, well, I hope you weren't gliding too far up ;)

@Lenn Omg, I wish there was another game like The Chronicles of Spellborn, actually I wish TCoS was still here. That was the best combat system I've seen in a mmorpg and a great game. After I first saw your comment about hoping this game would be like Spellborn, I had to make sure I read the article. Sadly it says this in it....

"A first glance, combat consists of the standard "click the target, click abilities" type."

That doesn't sound good. Sounds like the same old mmorpg. :(

Bring back Spellborn!!!!

Seems interesting. Hope they make it freemium a la DDO.

Could you clarify this to me Beau?

I was actually quite excited about this game... until I found out it was "click-and-wait". Same-old same-old. I refuse to sign up for any game released post-2010 that employs this outdated form of combat.

Potions aren't harmless in a PvP game, Beau.
