War of Rings
I’ve been playing this game for almost a month now and by playing, I mean my character has been fighting around on his own for almost a month! I know, that may sound strange since I’m technically playing this game, but not really playing it. Well, let me enlighten you about this awesome game which you barely have to spend time on and I gotta say, it is the perfect recipe for mobile gamers who love playing games, but have no time for it.
War of Rings is a 3D Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG) where players from all over the world interact within the same virtual world and fight enemies together or challenge one another. Sure, there are tons of MMORPG out there, but what sets War of Rings apart would be its brilliant and fluid automatic system which even works offline. While most games of the same genre has the option of automatic battle system where the main character will fight enemies on its own, there are rarely any games where you can go on quests and complete missions even if you don’t control the game at all. This type of gameplay may not be for everyone since it sort of turns an Action Role Playing Game into a casual game, keeping in mind that one rarely considers mobile gaming as “serious” gaming, I would say that it works out for the best.
In War of Rings, your main mission is to fight against elves, dwarfs, gnomes, orcs, cyclopes among others in order to collect 27 powerful rings and create a brand new world order. The controls are simple and work like any other RPG, on the left you have a D-Pad with which you can move your character around and on the right are the attack and power buttons and the powers will vary according to the class of hero you choose. Unlike most mobile game these days, this game does not encourage you to spend real money and since all the equipments can only be attained by defeating enemies, the players who actually spend money with in-app purchases have very little advantages so that makes the game a bit more fair. Being an MMORPG, you can team up with players from around the world to fight enemy bosses together and it is rather easy to create or join temporary teams for certain quests and for a more permanent solution, you can join up with a guild and go for quests together.
The character development and upgrades in this game is quite neat as well, you can obviously get new weapons and armour from the battles you fight, but along with those, you can get runes and stones to upgrade and enhance your abilities and then there are the usual upgrades such as strength, dexterity, stamina and intelligence where you can allot points as you desire. You can also train and upgrade your “mount”, which starts off as a standard horse which you can ride on, and as you continue to upgrade it, the mount will change its shape to become dragons! Yeah, you can ride on dragons once you reach a high level. As for your sidekick, you get a “ward”, and much like the mount, you can feed your ward and salvage ward pills which you will get when you complete certain missions and it will become more powerful as time passes. When you play this game, you will end up spending most of your time upgrading your character and pets, and less time exploring the world since there isn’t much to explore in the first place. And as you complete more quests and your character gets more powerful, you will unlock new maps and new challenges along with new abilities. You can also earn titles as you progress further and these titles will appear before your name, which you can flaunt it while roaming around the virtual world. And speaking of flaunting your character, you can get all sorts of upgrades like wings which will make your character stand out in a crowd.
This game has a lot to offer and in my personal opinion, it is greatly underrated but the good thing is that the developers of this game constantly updates it with more quests and other stuff which is always great. And I love the offline play, where your character continues to battle enemies even if you are not logged in and this has a great benefit since the character will continue to get stronger and get more experience points even if you don’t play it. but the downside of this being an MMORPG would be the language barrier since many players don’t speak English, it can be hard to find a Guild with players who speak the same language. But that’s not much of a problem since everyone understands the basic objective of this game and that is to destroy your enemies.
