The best breakdown I got;

~The cons.

The dev is often sick, so updates can be slow.

The trading scene is abssymal, thanks to a clunky trading market and a really bad case of inflation.

And the action timer feels like a snail at first, making the membership really, really appealing. Perhaps too much so.

~Now for the pros.

The community is helpful, persistent, and probably the nicest one I've seen on a PBBG.

The captchas are not intrusive in the least, and you can safely idle away for a full day before having to do one--no 15 minute or 1 hour cut-offs here.

When the dev IS around, he pushes out updates within hours of them being reported, if not minutes, and is probably one of the main sources of friendliness from his community.

All premium features are bought with the premium currency, not direct money--and you can find that premium currency in game, and will always get some with your weekly and monthly bonuses--and the daily quests, if you can do them. And you can trade for them.

~All in all, this ain't a perfect game. But I think in time, it might just get close, for those who like idle/PBBGs.

I'll start with the negatives first: The autos are run client side so you need to have the game open in a tab, and uses more resources than it likely should, making it not the best game for mobile. Another major downside is that the dev has poor health and has been known to go silent for weeks on end. The last downside I can think of is that while the entire game can be played free to play, some of the features (auras) take a rather long while to max if you play it entirely free, which gives the game a bit of a pay to win feel, despite the fact that there are no actual win conditions and you actually play at your own pace. Those are the downsides, and most of them are subjective. As for the positives, when the dev is active he can release bug fixes within hours of them being reported, and I've found him extremely friendly when I've spoken with him. The game doesn't have any real win conditions, so it can be played at one's own pace. The game itself plays as if RuneScape was an idle game and manages to capture the nostalgia extremely well. The community is great, which is always a plus. There are a large number of interconnected tradeskills, so there is always something to work towards, and it keeps the game feeling fresh despite the fact that it's progress bars all the same. Overall I'd rate it 5 stars and I'd say it is worth checking out just to see if you like it.

I have been playing this game for a few years now and it has been fantastic. The game has come a long way since I first started. Tons of updates, lots of new content, a multitude of skills to train and a great community with a very passionate dev. The game just celebrated it’s 5th Anniversary and along with a brand new site theme.I encourage anyone that enjoys browser based games to give this a try. You won’t be disappointed.

Interesting take on a browser-based runescape-like game. The main issue I have is that the market is not usable and makes the experience feel like Ironman even if you don't opt into it.
