Conquer Online Review by Doug Byrd

Overall Score: 6/10

Story 2/10

Not much story, if any really. There are a few quests that are related, but mainly the quests are fetch quests.

Language 8/10

The English text in the game is written in a solid manner, typos and Engrish will not likely show up if at all.

Combat 8/10

Combat is fairly easy to master, you have three main styles to choose from. Melee classes like Trojan, and Warrior are the simplest, most of their skills are auto use, with a few other skills that can be used for an amount of stamina. Taoists are the mages in the game, Fire Taoists cast all of the damaging spells, not just fire, while Water Taoists cast mainly healing spells, as well as buffs. Archers use a bow, which is distinctly different from magic because stamina is used for skills rather than mana. Different arrows can have different effects on the target but can get expensive.

EXP moves also give you an edge in combat, the most notable of these is the Ninja’s poison move that will damage for a percentage of the target’s remaining health, a single ninja can kill entire crowds of vastly higher level players when teamed up with an archer to finish them off.

Character Development 3/10

When you are first starting out, there is basically zero character development. You are identical to everybody else of your class, you will dress exactly the same as everybody else of your class, and you will use the same skills as everybody else of your class. The real customization comes much, much later in the game, towards lvl 100 where you can afford gems to give your equipment various bonuses. Rebirth, which requires a quest once you are a good bit past lvl 100 (Water Taoists get it sooner though) will allow you to redistribute your stat points from their default locations. Be prepared to play for a very long time if you want to get to customize your character.

Other 2/10

There is little else other than killing monsters and PK. With PK you are vulnerable from lvl 1 against even a lvl 130 second reborn as soon as you walk outside the city gates. This can be frustrating for new players because many Pkers hang out around the front gate looking for PK tickets that are only dropped from the lvl 1 mobs there.

Events 5/10

The main event is a weekly PK tournament, players who wish to test their skill can enter a battle royal by paying entry with a PK ticket, as mentioned in the paragraph above.

SUMMARY

Mainly this game is more focused around PvP than story or teamwork, anybody can kill you, even your own team mates. This game is mostly recommended for players who enjoy the thrill of being a second from random death at nearly any given time, or those who like to focus on competing against other players more directly.

    game is usually filled with liars, scammers, guys posing as girls(more than other games). Otherwise it’s very addicting. I was once the richest archer (nothing paid for) I could plvl a water tao to reborn in 8 hours. The gameplay is really neat and i wish there was this type of gameplay in a more 3d or newer mmo.
