hrmm, no comments? this game looks awesome to me for some reason, im gonna grab a key and check it out. I guess i missed the hype on this game ..the classes look really fun to play, and it has pvp which wasn't mentioned and all kinda stuff. I am becoming picky with what MMOs i will and wont try, and i think i'll give this one a shot. Anyone else into this at all?

@Resurge Went through the forums real quick.. saw a post that said the English translation's horrible. That was the dealbreaker for me.

Looked at some yourube videos for this, looks completely typical. Boring, grinding...

"the innovation comes courtesy of a combat system designed to bring tactics and visual style to the forefront of every fight"
Could someone explain to me how?
The website has aboslutely no details and the youtube videos make the combat look generic as hell.
Spell animations look nice though.

I played up to lvl 10 last night, and the game is pretty fun. It's pretty instanced though ..in the city, you see a lot of people ..didn't see many others out killing stuff in the open areas. The combat is pretty good, nice and fluid ..not 100% sure on the autopilot thingy, i just played in the normal fashion, and had no issues.

On the plus side ..everything is pretty much instant ..you get a quest, click on it in your quest overview, and your character will walk to the next place you need to go by himself, or you can just run over there manually. You can use mounts at lvl 1, and you get a cpl free ones when you open your goody bags for CB. The mounts are pretty fun and original ..at least some of them. Full vanity costume, you can choose to show over your real armor, or not. The pets look awesome, but i haven't gotten my first one yet ..i'm on the quest now. For f2p beta, the game feels fairly polished. Plus i like the martial arts vibe. The exp is fast and easy, doubt if this will be as grindy as most easterm MMOs.

On the downside, yea the translations are freaking ridiculous at this point, I assume they will be redone along the line before true release. The game is over-instanced, but not sure how bad yet. Some of the mechanics are hard to understand because the translation is no help at all, but you figure it out if you try. The quests so far are pretty boring standard stuff, but i'm only lvl 10, so i am sure things will get more involved at some point.

If i had to sum it up, i'd say this game feels kinda like WoW and Vindictus had a kid, and that kid was Chinese for some reason. I'm looking forward to trying out some pvp and group instances this weekend ..i think that's where the fun will really be in this game.

Game has nice graphics (for an mmo) and omg flashy skills :)
It's entire UI needs some serious adjustments if not a full replacement.
Translations are just ridiculous, 'nuff said.
Mounts are very nice and "innovative", though they'll for sure be a CS only once the game goes into OB.

Scarlet Legacy is crazy fun ! My Monk class is amazing, absolutely a thrill to play, auto-potion system works great so I can just focus on gameplay.

Quest system is fun, and yes some may say "oh its so easy quests tell you where to go blah blah" but hey, It's fun, quests are easy and the combat is epic, flashy, tons of skills so early on and just absolutely a blast. Can't wait for the OBT to start on 8/18!

Yeah I played and CBT and the graphics were really good. The videos on youtube are entertaining and look forward to OBT August 18th.
