Ragnarok Online 2: Swordsman Guide

The identified "tank" of RO2, the Swordsman class is a melee class dependent on close range battles. They are generally the first person to take damage and deliver damage in a battle, fighting on the frontlines of a battle. A Novice can become a Swordsman after a certain requirement, at this time unknown, is met. The Swordsman relies on damage skills, though it also has several powerful defensive skills. It can successfully fight high level monsters much higher than its level due to its high HP and damage ratio. Most of its attacks center around dealing damage, though some are geared towards dealing damage towards more than one target at the same time. It is severely limited in ranged attacks, however. In RO1, a swordsman could advance to either a Knight or Crusader at job level 40-50. The Knight, which is an improvement on the Swordsman's damage dealing ideal, relies on high damage skills. A Crusader, who is more of a battlemage, relies on a balance of both damage skills and buff skills. It is unknown at this point if the Knight or Crusader will be introduced into RO2.

Cabal Online Episode 10 Rising Force Part II: Tower of Undead Developer's Notes

The second part of Cabal Online's upcoming patch, Episode 10: Rising Force is entitled Tower of Undead.

This part also shows even more changes in the skills area, including a Sword/Magic Skill Integration.

For more information, read on and savor all the new changes that will delight all Cabal fans.

Cabal Online Episode 10 Rising Force Part I: Freeze Developer's Notes

Cabal's upcoming patch update, Episode 10: Rising Force, will be divided into 3 parts, with the first two parts revealed to be entitled Freeze and Tower of Undead, respectively.

The third part is yet to be unveiled.

Episode 10 shows a drastic but definitely good change for all the game's character classes, as all of the skills will be tweaked or modified in one way or another. Aside from that, there are also new stats to help players improve their respective characters. There are also new skills for the Force Blader, Wizard, Force Shielder, and Force Archer.

Players will also be treated to a new Mission Battle System that will test everyone's piloting skills, as this is for PVP lovers.

Here is the Developer's Notes for the first part. For those who want to read my previous post about Rising Force, just click on this link.

Dragon Nest KR Adds Kali to Character Line-up

Dragon Nest KR has updated their servers with the introduction of the 6th class, the Kali, into the fore.

The Kali, also known as the Dancer, uses dual fans for weapons (remember Kitana in Mortal Kombat?) and is loaded with unique buffs and debuffs with styles that could either be based on paper or darkness. She is an ideal character to use if you are fond of attack speed.

I'm sure Dragon Nest SEA will soon be able to get a taste of the skillful Kali.

Cabal II Suffers From Mass Hack

According to foreign reports with evidence from Cabal II's official boards, accounts have been hacked on a daily basis since the game went into Open Beta on the 14th last month. Around 6% of the threads posted since that date are related to accounts being compromised.

The New Razer Blade: The Beastly Beauty

First revealed a year ago, the Razer Blade was a fascinating machine. Dubbed "The World's First True Gaming Laptop" by its makers, the $2,800 17-inch machine, weighing less than seven pounds, was a bold experiment that traded power for portability, and portability for price.

The experiment was an overwhelming success. Earlier this year the Blade hit the PC market, garnering mostly favorable reviews. Despite performance that fell short of comparably-priced traditional laptops, the Blade's sleek profile and startling portability drove strong sales — Razer could barely keep up with the demand.

And now that Razer has proven the power of the Blade to customers, critics and suppliers, it's time for an upgrade.

Meet the new Razer Blade. It's much more powerful, and costs $300 less.

Scammer Alert! Warning to all Dragon Nest Players

I have received an email from someone who claims to be from Cherry Credits, stating that in order to decrease the lag in-game, I would have to give them my account details or else my account would be deemed inactive and therefore would get deleted.

Fortunately, I am smarter than I look.

Here's a screenshot of the email:

First off, GMs would never ask for any player's account details. Why? Because they don't need to. They have a database for that. They don't even need to send out emails to know which accounts are inactive because that would appear in player logs.

Second, why even bother asking for my "registered email address"? If you really are from Cherry Credits, the only email address you would know would be my registered email address, nothing more, nothing less.

Third, Cherry Credits does not use as their email address. They use "". Good luck registering an email in their site.

Lastly, any mass account deletion would have been announced in the Dragon Nest website beforehand, notifying all players regarding this move. I frequently check the site and there's nothing there related to what was stated in the email.

This does not only apply to Dragon Nest and Cherry Credits but to all game companies as well. Please keep this in mind, everyone.

Be smart enough to know how to distinguish a fake from a real one. Protect your online accounts. Never give your account details to anyone.

Satisfy Your Hunger: Hunger Games Cosplay Tribute and DVD Release

Nothing can dictate a Pinoy’s mood and decision-making more than that gastric rumble. A subtle illustration is arguing with someone who has skipped both breakfast and lunch. You’ll see my point right after the argument. Hunger can, and will control you.

So much potency in a six-letter word – something that can drive a movie with hunger in its title to top the box office worldwide. Did I get you salivating for some Tribute action now? Your starvation for a blockbuster will come to an end on August 18, 2012 as C-Interactive Digital Entertainment releases The Hunger Games Home Video in the country.

Dragon Nest: Destroyer Skill Build

Dragon Nest Mercenaries will be taking things to the next level when the Destroyer starts cleaning house with the upcoming level 50 cap!

Compared to the Barbarian, the Destroyer is more of a PvP character, with skills that were perhaps created to cater to the PvP-loving players (please read further to know what I mean :P )

Dragon Nest: Barbarian Skill Build

Along with an increase in the level cap comes a time for us to make choice: What's going to be my next job class?

Dragon Nest SEA is already giving teasers for the level 50 cap, posting in their social networking sites stuff that would definitely excite anyone who's had an awesome time in Lagendia. And because my character is a Mercenary, it is only self-serving for me to check out my options, whether I'll be a Barbarian or a Destroyer.

As early as now, I'm sharing to you what I have found online and hopefully it will be useful to you, too.

Einherjar Incorporates World Chat Plus Discounts Galore!

'Line Pirates: Bringing High Quality Gaming to Facebook

There's something unusual happening in the world of games today: someone wants to make a high quality, complex strategy game that you can actually play with your friends - on Facebook, a platform traditionally known for simpler games.

Kim Lumbard, the leader at Spudnugget Studios, is dissatisfied with the standard offerings. "Many Facebook games are sadly just time wasters. You click, and then click again an hour later to collect a bunch of junk. That's unfun. It pains me to see people play games like Cow Clicker... especially when there's not only some good Facebook games out there but also a mountain of gaming best practices from PC, console, and mobile that hasn't made it into the Facebook mainstream. That's why we're building the game 'Line Pirates: to bring higher quality gaming to Facebook."
