It becomes a really good game once you\'ve spent $300-$1k on equips. Startin out as a non payer, you will be dissapointed as events are full of hackers, parties are non existant and soloing mobs all the time is never fun. Later levels, if you did not pay for your equipment it would be impossible to find parties as higher level people require other \"pros\" to party with them for fast exp. Pay to play, over lvl say 70 Mind you, level 70 can be hit within the week easy.

This is a very simple and fun game. It\'s become very easy to level up and updates are very frequent, with new classes every few months. Some classes do require a little money to get full use, but you don\'t need to. There are a lot of players, so finding an open channel to train can get difficult, but a lot of players are willing to share. There are plenty of bosses, party quests, minigames, and expeditions if you get bored of grinding. Nexon constantly has 2x exp/meso events and item hand outs for specific classes. There\'s a different playing style for each class, and there are endless possibilities for what you can do in the game.
