Well since the game is up and coming I've renamed and made this the Megathread for the game. We'll keep all conversations for the game here going forward.
OT: It does look promising so far.
hope this makes you feel better

So....what does quoting a dead guy say about you?
Besides from the sweet jumping/flying/gliding aspect (which is actually pretty neat) and being more "ninja-esque" combat, it looks almost identical to Aion.
there is a very good review from Steparu (as always ) it would be nice if you could update the first post with his review..has a lot of videos from the game and very good info
Now, I am also looking forward for this game. I have played Aion extensively but eventually dropped it because I am not into pvp..although its dungeons and classes/combat was simply amazing and kept me for long time...Now this smells like the same.the more I read the more I realize is a heavy pvp game..lot of abilities (like to walk on walls) are only unlocked via pvp ranks. I will play it for sure, but I don't know for how long
The problem when you make a game F2P is systems need to be designed around annoying players enough to pay. Some games are less annoying than others, but at their core they need to give you a reason to spend money. Burying pay-to-win mechanics under an initial layer of skill-to-win, providing advantages that become required for competitive play, roadblocks or surprisingly reduced game functionality tucked underneath paid barriers that weren't obvious when you started.
I've been playing the game on the Korean servers for a while and I have to say that this game is really fun. The questing is quite average like in every MMO (though some of the quests appear to be voice acted like in SWTOR, but seems only to be the main storyline quests).
The combat and movement is where the game really shines though, I've been playing a Lyn Swordsmaster and I absolutely love it, the combat is actionfilled and relatively fastpaced and the movement is really fun, being able to run fast, hover and jump around, including running up on walls etc.
The character customization is amazing too with just as many (if not more) options as Aion has.
I haven't played all that far, but I'm really looking forward to a European/NA-version of this game.
It does kinda remind you of Aion and TERA on some parts, so if you didn't care much for those games, there's a chance you won't like this one either.
I like how fights are telegrahphed better then GW2 fights. Such as this one:
Yea spell effects get in the way but she vocally telegraphs it. Like when she starts laughing her head off it means shes about to do a rapid fire infront of her so you side step out of her face.
Cmon US release...

summoner class about to be dropped because of the amount of bugs

looks at blademaster for a few sec. GIEF NOW! xD
A wise man once said: "Does it matter what religion you are?
we are here to connect each other people in the world ... through MUSIC"
I kinda liked summoner though. It was adorable as hell in the trailer / teaser they released. I suppose if it was bugged that much though it couldn't really go through with it. Hopefully they were able to fix it.
Quite honestly I don't mind if they take it off than have a very buggy class in game. A lot easier to fix a character off line than it is live.

Lyn blademaster might go DW, which I think is a good route of being distinguished from the original blade master.
Summoner revamp was speculated for october but never happened. Lyn blademaster was made because 25% of eastern playerbase is female so it was introduced for them when they would need to reroll when summoner gets botched :/
Looks like shit. Also NcSoft are bad developers.
