The upcoming MMORPG will feature an active combat system along with a variety of weapons and armor that help players tackle the wicked and varying denizens that threaten this unique fantasy world.  Players must stay on their toes avoiding deadly enemy attacks and environmental hazards such as lava and water.  Players will take on massive bosses with either magic or might in this spellbinding online game.
