Published by a fairly-new games company, Gamenet Space, Realm of Warriors is a Chinese-themed browser RPG where you’ll get to assemble a party of heroes to take on not only the rebel forces but also the Dragon Demon who is trying to break out from the Seal Tower and corrupt the world. Aside from pretty great graphics, a really nice soundtrack, and a fun gameplay, the game also has plenty of automation to go around, making it the perfect idle game to play on the side.
The plotline in Realm of Warriors is simply all over the place, covering every possible trope you’d come to expect from a Chinese-themed RPG, ranging from martial arts to dragons and even to various references to the Three Kingdoms and the unique array of popular Chinese deities.
However, I’ve got to give them where credit is due – the whole shenanigan with Flying Lotus, who was supposedly a disciple who’s on the good side, seemingly turned traitor as he was revealed to not only whole-heartedly believe the ideology of the rebels regarding the rampant rot that’s corrupting the house of the Emperor… he’s also leading the rebel army. The rather unexpected (but admittedly, it’s kind of lame) plot twist – spoiler alert by the way! – comes when you defeated the guy and he turns out to have only been bewitched for some reason.
I find that the game does have some sort of a storyline among all the confusing mess of pot starters but it’s perhaps due to issues with the translation, which had caused many parts of the story to be somewhat incoherent.
To play, you’ll first create your character. The game provides you with 3 archetype classes to choose from, namely warrior, mage and archer, and each class comes in 2 genders. Oddly enough though, the name you give to your character needs to have two parts, like a first and a last name, for your character to be created. If not, you’ll get an error which states that your chosen name is not “case sensitive”. This is likely a temporary bug of some sort though.
Now, in terms of questing, the game basically automated most parts of the process, but you are still required to click the “Continue Story” button, and if you’re entering a battle, the “Fight” button occasionally. The turn-based combat is automated as well, but you’ll be required to sit through the combat animations. There’s an option for you to speed the animations up or skip the combat animations altogether once you reached level 30.
One thing of note though! Prior to any battle, the characters involved in the fight will have a bit of smack talk. This is an interesting addition but I’m not sure how many of its players really appreciate the extra dialogue they have to endure/ click through. I for one enjoy the occasionally funny insults-hurling in this game.
To be any good in Realm of Warriors, you’ll need to assemble a team of strong heroes in addition to upgrading your mount, equipment and so on. Heroes can be obtained via a simple gacha-style summoning process. It’s slow going if you don’t plan on spending real money, but there’s always a chance for you to get a really good card.
You may rather frequently get card fragments as well. These fragments, when sufficient, can be combined into a hero card. This hero card will then allow you to deploy the hero into your team formation. Like other similar MMOs, the positions you place your heroes in can also be very important. Don’t forget to level up your heroes from time to time too!
Besides heroes, you can obtain superior weapons and armor that you can then equip on your character or on any of your other heroes. These items can be further augmented to increase their combat potency. You can get mounts in this game as well.
However, a quick tip if you will – the game will try to get you to buy your first mount – the Blue Wolf – using real cash, but you should know that you can actually get a mount, a bear, for free simply by logging in two days in a row. This little bit of information is crucial just so you won’t feel like you’re forced to spend any real money.
Similar to other MMORPGs, the game has a main story-driven quest chain which is your main source of experience points in the earlier levels, but as you level up, you’ll gradually unlock other exp-gaining opportunities for both PvE and PvP. In fact, I was quite surprised to find that you can already participate in the game’s weekly tournaments at level 25, which is a lot earlier than many other browser MMOs that I’ve reviewed before.
Monetization in Realm of Warriors is pretty standard. You can “recharge” by spending real money in exchange for premium currency. Every recharge you make (on a per-Euro basis) will give you a sum of VIP points and these points will help you rank-up in the VIP tier. The higher you go, the more perks you’ll unlock, some of which can be grossly unfair to the free-to-play players, but that’s how most browser MMOs roll.
Realm of Warriors is an RPG and like most RPGs, it’s pretty social. In addition to having a chat system and group activities, you can also sign up to join a Legion, which functions like a guild. You will gain access to many Legion-only features, such as cultivating the Legion’s farm plots in hopes of getting a good cultivation chest, and also finding companionship as you go through the leveling process, but in return, you’ll be expected to donate and be active… which is a fair deal, I’d say.
As a Chinese-themed game, Realm of Warrior features Chinese-themed music that I really enjoyed. It’s so soothing to listen to and in some way, it has a melody that mimics theme songs of historic-themed Chinese dramas. Graphics-wise, the game looks pretty good from afar but you will probably think the visuals look somewhat grainy upon closer inspection. It’s good for a browser game, overall. However, there’s a couple of graphical glitches that I’ve personally encountered, such as when you’re riding your phoenix, the game puts your character behind the saddle… so basically, you’re sitting on its tail. Looks weird, right?
All in all, Real of Warriors is a pretty decent browser MMORPG if you focus more on its gameplay and its graphics and sound. In terms of its storyline though, I find that the writer tries to focus on building a compelling story but somehow, along the way, he messed things up and everything turned into a mess. Perhaps this issue can be partly attributed to a translation issue, who knows? So, if you plan on trying this game out, at least you’ll be going in with your eyes wide open.
