Dragon Oath review:Developed by ChangYou.com for Windows.
It is a Chinese martial arts MMORPG adapted from the popular Chinese novel Tian Long Ba Bu which was written by famous martial arts Wuxia writer Jin Yong. Developed by Sohu-ChangYou, it attracts such a vast amount of players that it is currently ranked 3rd in the Chinese MMORPG market.
The game is set in ancient China during the time of the Song Dynasty in 960 AD. The story behind TLBB revolves around an elaborate saga of complex, troubled relationships among numerous characters from various kingdoms and sects during China’s Northern Song Dynasty. The warring empires involved in the story are those of Song, Liao, Dali, Western Xia, and Tubo. The struggles the characters experience within their combating factions affect the bonds between themselves and their families, societies, ethnic groups, and countries. As a result, strife and conflict abound, and each player will find himself/herself quickly pulled in to the fray, striving to evolve and leave his/her mark. Part of this evolution involves choosing one of the nine martial arts classes.
Pyromancers are characterised by their preemptive attacks; they give up defence for a short while in order to have the most powerful attacks among The Nine Classes. Pyromancers believe the Holy Fire will bless them to be reborn and will choose to die in combat rather than flee from battle.
The Lotus Order apprentices usually study the personal virtues of the Buddha paired with Kung Fu. Their studies have given them abilities and skills not only to absorb damage, but also to heal.
Kung Fu fighters from Royalty prefer to use their fingers instead of a sword and are most famous for the 'Six Veins Divine Sword' which attacks the body`s vital points to stun the target or reduce the target's spiritual power. It is said that Royalty Kung Fu is the bane of spirit users.
The Minstrels are often depicted as ne'er do wells and charlatans who prefer to avoid challenges. They rely heavily on traps and devices to confuse their enemies. Their devices normally implore the aid of the spirit and fire elements.
It is believed that the Taoist philosophy, which is ingrained in the Taoist class’s training and promotes going with the flow and living simply in harmony with nature, cultivates leaders of men.
Voodoo Kung Fu is the weakest of the martial arts and relies heavily on the use of poisons to inflict damage, in most cases before the battle has even begun. The Voodoo have developed a strong defence against spirit.
The Assassins Kung Fu is so well known for its mystery that its apprentices are regarded as wraiths. Assassins are masters of ice and physical attacks, dealing quick powerful combos, but their most terrifying skill is the ability to become invisible.
Every good general that goes into a war has a plan; the same can be said of the Beggars Alliance Kung Fu. The fighting style is based on a series of moves that build and increase the strength of their next attack. Although their attacks are mainly physical, they also use poisons squeezed from venomous snakes & insects.
Shaolin Kung Fu has a long history and is trademarked by its legendary iron body skill providing both tremendous offensive and defensive power.
