There is very little information floating around (in English, anyway) about Allods Online.Â The official website gives a very brief rundown on what the game is and who is making it, but then offers very little about the actual mechanics, features, and so on.Â Since the weekend is turning out to be very relaxing, but at the same time slow, and a couple of us from the K&G community are without a mmo to immerse ourselves in, we decided to start collecting tidbits of interesting info.
You’ll find information about which class is the best tank, charts showing when classes get what armor and when they can use weapons, links to previews about the Astral Ships, and lots more, especially as it continues to grow.Â My goal is to create one single thread with lots of information that people wanting to know more about the game will find interesting and useful.Â You can find this thread on the K&G forums.Â Feel free to contribute to it if you wish.
Here are two tidbits of interesting info:
“At lvl 23 you WILL(no exceptions if you wanna lvl) be sent to Holy Lands. In Holy Lands you get to quest with the opposing faction and most quests involve killing their soldiers/players or taking over strategic points or sabotaging their stuff.
One of the first places you will be sent to is Spider Hill.
Atop the hill is a place of power that gives you a 10min buff if you stand on it. Thats ofc is a good thing to have. On either side of the hill are Liga and Imperia camps.
Let me tell you something. When I got to that Hill….I had the most fun I have ever had in the game. PvPing with Imperia was wicked fun.
Alas, it didnt last too long. After about an hour of awesome combat a lvl 40 Imperia Mage came over and ruined everything(that [I Am A Potty Mouth]!).
But in conclusion: Yes you will be sent to a place where you quest and PvP at same time.”
“Paladins are best at SINGLE TARGET tanking, ie: boss fights.
They cannot hold agro on more then 2 mobs effectively due to limitations on how fast they can apply marks + Anaphema(dunno whats it called in English sry)(The one that inc the threat from strike x5).
How ever once they get that combo up on a mob then its almost impossible to agro from them not to mention that if the Paladin is not a noob and knows how to operate barriers effectively then you will see that he takes almost no dmg.(Exceptions being chain criticals)
Warriors are best at MULTIPLE TARGET tanking ie:trash.
That doesnt mean that they fail at tanking bosses it just means its a lot harder for them to do so not to mention that it is hard to heal them while they are tanking a hard hitting boss. Where a paladin can shrug off 1 million dmg (YES IT IS POSSIBLE, paladins have an ability that allows them to remove any dmg from their 1st barrier no matter how big the dmg is) a warrior will most definitely bite the dust.
The reason why they are great at tanking multiple mobs is that they have many melee abilities that hit Everything in front of them, thus, generating a ton of agro if repeated enough times.”
You can also ask any questions here and I’ll do my best to answer them or point you in the direction of the best answer.Â I’m hoping that as the game enters CBT#2 that we’ll be getting more information released to us.Â The sneak peeks seem to be coming steadily at least once per day revealing a bit about each of the classes, some zones, and different mobs.Â While the sneak peeks are interesting, they don’t offer that perspective a player can share.Â Hopefully the Allods Online community will continue to translate from the Russian/EU version.
