Rappelz Gameplay

Rappelz is a fantasy MMORPG, which has a simple but entertaining plot and immersive gameplay. The concept of the game is pretty standard for Asian RPGs: the world is divided by three races, the light Deva, the dark Asura and the neutral Gaia. The main goal of the characters from all factions is to unite and defeat their forces of evil. All of the races have a similar set of classes, which differ with small gameplay features. The main activity of Rappelz is the completion of quests, dungeons and different PvE competitions; these game modes take the most time during the character development, but the endgame content mainly consists of PvP battles and complicated challenges.

One of the core aspects of Rappelz is a pet system. Pets can be tamed, trained and used for different purposes, such as combat or support. Each hero has a taming feature as one of the necessary skills, and it can be increased as well as other abilities. The more advanced ability you have, the more powerful pets you can obtain with it. Captured creatures can equip different items, such as armour, weapon, accessories; all of them can be upgraded and customized. Moreover, you can train your pet’s skills too: this system works similarly to the development of the main character.

During the gameplay, players can choose one of the available types of locations with mobs — you can fight at the field at public instances, or enter the dungeon with a group of different players. The main difference between these modes is the complexity and power of the enemies. The dungeon mobs are much more powerful and dangerous than others; there are even specific monsters with the highest amount of HP and damage, which are called bosses. The basic concept of the dungeon competitions is to clear up the whole location, kill the boss and, if possible, keep all of the group members alive.

The most effective way to clear a dungeon is a team-up with the guildmates, who already experienced gameplay with you. Rappelz have simple guild system: all players since level 20 can form a guild; five guilds can cooperate into an alliance, which has many advanced privileges. For example, powerful guild associations can own personal dungeon which provides specific benefits, such as in-game currency, energy and materials.

Even though your character’s abilities rank increases automatically, you still have to choose the skill development path manually. The development of the capabilities requires a specific level of your hero; the rate of the skill can’t be higher than half of the main level.

Rappelz Classes

Each race in Rappelz has a similar set of jobs: the Warriors, the Magicians, the Summoners, and hybrids. The game has detailed job progression, which helps to customize the skills of each profession.

  • Warrior — a class of physically strong melee fighters, who have the highest physical attack or defence abilities.
  • Hunters — long-ranged heroes with physical damage, who are the best suitable for duel fights.
  • Magicians — heroes with magical damage and healing or buffing abilities.
  • Summoners — class of characters who concentrate on the development and control of pets. Summoners specialize in buffs and healing of the teammates and familiars.
