It's very appealing i have to admit, but the major problem is that I can't connect to the server or like that.
I refreshed so many time i'm beginning to lose my patient. This could have been a potential game but very many issues still need to be address. Until then I'm nice enough to give it 3 stars.

The current problem here is that it has been 12 hours since the beginning of the all-server maintenance as opposed to the scheduled 3-4 hours. All of their other servers have been back online no longer than 1 hour past the scheduled finish while Newgrounds's server remains down at the character selection.
Meanwhile, the quality of the game is rather nice. I found it kinda hilarious that this particular MMO promotes AFK level/farming, but the way they implement it is actually rather thorough and well done. The exception to that being the skill intervals where instead of using a specific skill every x amount of time, the character waits that amount of time and then spams the skill in question. That could do with some fixing. The most useful thing with AFK mode is that you can render yourself immune to PK diehards once AFK protection is on. Works for me.
Aside from that, the game still has a good amount of content to offer. The grind becomes very noticeable post-40, but at the very least there are repeatable daily quests to alleviate that. There are also double and triple exp tokens you can use to further stall the crawling stage, and can be easily gotten in handfuls without spending money.
Aesthetically, the game is beautiful. The sprites and maps look painted, perhaps even using watercolor. It is very pleasing. It's a bit of a shame that there's a great difference between the character portrait and the character model, but that's not too uncommon in MMORPGs. There's also some lack of clothing variance for each class. Perhaps only 4 different outfits each that I noticed? Plus, the look only changes based on the body armor and helmets are never shown even though all characters of the same class/gender have the same exact (unchangeable) hairstyle.
The mounts look pretty badass and shiny. Some even do the fighting for you! The pets are significantly useful, though there's a bit of a lack of info on proper raising of each type. The portrait of the morphed vulture creeps me out too...
Not much I can weigh in on as far as classes go, but having two skill trees to select from, viable hybrid options, and even an exclusive passive skill path leaves a good amount of room for customization and experimenting. Problem there is there aren't as many people keen on that as those who just (annoying) ask that silly question of which class/pet/etc is the best in the game.
Overall, a good experience thus far for me.

I've only been playing this game for about a week, pretty good atmosphere, one of the best browser mmo's I've ever played, though it's a bit tricky to understand, it's tolerable. My only problem with the game is I get a delayed response when I click to move somewhere, although, I believe it has to do with my comp, other than that, the game runs smooth, even with all the graphics, which are amazing, if I may say so myself.

I made a character a few days prior to the day I actually started playing and to be honest, I was a bit iffy about it, seemed a bit "cartoon-ish", to me, but now I'm addicted.

Oh, almost forgot, I like and dislike the battlegrounds, it's fun, but it sucks because there are some beastly players that take me out in 2-3 hits. It's also the only feature in the game that DRASTICALLY, if that's the right word to use, lags for me.

Other than all of that, it's a hands down, killer game and I agree with Tegan-irish, I wouldn't mind forking over some dough, sometime in the future.

Currently the server being down ( that some are complaining about) is for the purpose of fixing issues that are commonly complained about....

Complainception!

I like the game, First browser MMORPG I've found that works on my Linux computer, plays relatively nicely with fire fox, there seems to be html5 puttering around in there which is a step forward for browser games as not many are floating around the web right now. That I've noticed anyway.

Technical difficulties:
Price interface for buying and selling is a bit buggy. How many times have I ended up getting 120 of something when I only wanted 20 is beyond me.

^ The only notable issue I could think of that is persistent.

Otherwise, I feel this game has room to grow yet and I may even throw some $ at it in the future.
