Y'kno. Normally when i see a game trailer i'm like "Thats pretty cool."
This just left me with a dumbfounded look on my face the entire time.
"They have fat rabbits..that...can look like pandas..and racoons?"

@scfs123 It's a fantasy MMO you clearly lack imagination.

If you're curious as to how/why this is possible, read up on the lore. They're animal spirits who were brought to sentience (that is a fancy word for higher intelligence) by the Elin, who are like faeries. Also, as Alex said, anyone who is confused by the content of a fantasy MMO should avoid such games. Orcs, Dragons and Unicorns aren't real either..

@NeverDeath An earthworm is sentient. Doesn't make it intelligent, though.

@scfs123 And kitties. Tremble at the thought of a pot-bellied, kitten-faced fireball-flinging cuteness attack.

Just four more days till the next fix.

@Lenn Earthworms are not sentient. They do not have the ability to "perceive" the world around them.

@Lenn

Pretty sure earthworms aren't "sentient".

I believe that requires, as a minimum, self-awareness...

@scfs123 these dudes have the best dodge animation in the game tho. try out a slayer - the 2-h sword user. and watch him use his sword to pull-vault over mobs heads.


the little bastards are sick as fuck in combat

@Theodorus We can infer that an earthworm is sentient because it reacts to sensory input. A sentient being isn't necessarily conscious social, but it must react to sensory experiences.

Sapient might be the word you're looking for.

Was that a free will or a deterministic bingo?

@Vundal They're awesome, and you can get a brass smoking pipe as an accessory! Now all they need is a top hat, maybe an ascot.

Man, I really love this game. A lot of haters out there, but this game really drew me in more than any other MMO has in a long time.

I mean yeah, the quests are super standard kill-ten-rats bullshit, but killing shit is just so damn... satisfying. And the PvP is excellent.

@pskfry there are haters everywhere...it's the only way they can feel superior, by putting something else down. See how sophisticated and stuff they are?

Agreed, my wife and I are so fkn excited for this game. Loving the CBT, but it's hard to get attached to my character because I know it's going to die on the headstart at the end of April D:.

Like you said, I don't mind killing ten rats if the rats are actually cerberi and killing them is an engaging and spectacular process to behold. It's not just about what you're doing, but how you do it. This game's mechanics are rock-solid, as are its artistic style and production values. Add in the potential for skill to separate the men from the boys and I'm all over this shit like the black death on Europe.

I so misread the text at the end as: "Start with mischief end with furry!"
