Warhammer Online Game Guide
Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning is a MMORPG based on the highly popular Game Workshop’s Warhammer Fantasy setting. It was developed by Mythic Entertainment, and released on September 18th, 2008. Warhammer Online revolves around the continual worldwide conflict that the Warhammer Fantasy setting is known for, and the game is geared toward ongoing, constant war laced with dark humor.
Warhammer Online is a Realm versus Realm (RvR) game comprised of two factions, Order and Destruction. Each faction contains three separate armies, each of which is further broken down into three or four career choices. Most careers are gender specific, meaning they are only playable as a male or female character.
Warhammer Online also offers character customization in many forums. The initial character creation process allows players to select the race, career, and basic look of their character. Dye is available at vendors for coloring armor and accessories. Players are able to decorate themselves with trophies, such as heads of fallen enemies, which are displayed on the character model.
I found warhammer to be a little bit repetitive. Because you can level in Warhammer Online via player vs player, there isn’t many players in the world actually leveling via Player versus Enemy. I enjoyed the player vs player content, but it did get boring quickly and that is one thing I found lacking in the game design. Another thing I dislike is the fact that there aren’t many different weapons. I will save that for another article.
Warhammer is definitely a great alternative to World of Warcraft, and has received numerous awards from many gaming magazines and websites.
