Ether Saga Online is a cartoon game with an oriental theme and music. There are three races to choose from (Ren, Shenzu, Mogui and Yaoh); while Ren, Shenzu and Yaoh share the same six classes, Mogui has only two exclusive classes available. Each race starts with a unique pet, which helps the player in combat, but starting at level 15, players are free to catch any creature they choose and raise it as a pet. The ability to distribute points earned among different items rather than statistics adds a layer of originality to Ether Saga Online. Overall, the game looks and plays like many other games in the genre. The presentation and graphics are sharper than previous games since Ether Saga is a recent game, developed by the same team behind Perfect World.
The eight classes are:
Snape – Rely on stealth and cunning. Equipped with double-poison daggers, thieves make deadly opponents.
Dragoon – The main scrum class that uses spears and plays the role of a tank in groups.
Conjurer – The primary offensive caster class that has the most powerful spells in the game. Conjurers use amulets to channel their power. They wear light armor.
Ranger – Equipped with a bow and arrow, the Ranger fights at a distance and is able to neutralize opponents with traps, traps and other abilities.
Shaman – A hybrid class with a powerful hammer that can cast healing and polishing spells. Shamans can serve as secondary tanks or support healers.
Mystic – The support class in Ether Saga. Mystics use moats and wear light armor, but can give powerful care and buffs to their allies.
Maven – The Mogui launchers, who use powerful attacks based on INT.
Hellion – Mogui’s melee counterpart, defense-oriented.
