What is MU Legend?
MU Legend is the follow-up game of the fantastic MU Online. MU Legend offers a clear and distinct virtually acclaimed hack and slashes combat. It’s a game content that caters both solo and party-play game scheme that will certainly bring players to a whole new explosive experience.
MU legend also offers their highly acclaimed graphic design, detailed character design, and stunning effects that make the game more exciting. In addition, players will choose from four heart-pounding classes. They are the Bladers, Dark Lords, Whisperers, and War Mages.
If you like a character that can engage in battle with multiple opponents and can sustain high damage for a long period of time, this class is for you.
Basically, Dark Lords are once a valiant and honorable knight who sacrificed their human side to a dark force in exchange for great power. This exchange result in appearance alteration which turns them into a fearless warrior bound to find devastating battles. Due to the Dark Lord’s characteristic, he is basically a tank that can take out enemies by dominating their immense power and massive health.
In-game tanks are very helpful, especially in dungeons and labyrinths. They can take out multiple enemies and endure multiple attacks without depleting much health. In addition, they have multiple buffs that can make them very tough and durable in battle. They are the perfect companions for long and tough battles.
For those players who like to play a character that has a great mobility, high agility, with impressive skills and is a ranged character, this class is right for you.
Whisperer is warriors who utilize ranged weapons for the exquisite assassination of enemies. They are expert in scouting and killing enemies silently. In short, they are the merciless assassin that uses ranged weapons such as bows and utilizes the energy of nature to slaughter enemies.
By nature, Whisperers can deal massive damage to enemies without them noticing. In addition, whisperers are very agile and can cast skills in long range, therefore, hit and run battle strategy is good for this class. However, they have lesser health compare to tanks making them vulnerable when the enemies close the gap between them. In order to avoid this devastating scenario, a player must slaughter the enemy first before he reaches you.
On the other hand, if you’re a player who likes a character that can deal massive damage that possesses awesome swordplay and impressive skill set and is a melee character, this class is the one that you are waiting for.
Blader is a character that is a brutal and powerful warrior. A blader is a product of the experimentation done by the Kanturians and human to create a powerful rage warrior. This experiment results in a warrior who lust for great battle.
In any case, this character is very wild and violent. Bladers can clearly deal massive damage to enemies. Though they have lesser health compared to a tank, their damage is quite high. They are also very agile and durable making them very useful in long and tough battles.
However, if you like a character that will take you to a magical world this class is for you. War Mages are basically a mage that possesses high magic ability. They can take out multiple enemies in the long distance. In addition, mages usually possess high AOE damage skills, therefore, they can damage multiple enemies all at once.
In-game, Mages are as important as tanks. While the tanks lure multiple enemies to attack him, Mages, on the other hand, are dealing massive damage to them. Though the other classes also possess some AOE abilities, in terms of quantity, Mages usually has more. Their high magical ability makes them useful in dungeons and labyrinths.
Dungeons and Rifts
Aside from awesome classes to choose from, MU Legend also offers very interesting maps, dungeons, and labyrinths. These maps are very vital in character build-up, hunting rare items and for fast leveling.
A player can enter anywhere at any level in rifts and dungeons. Basically, rifts and dungeons are generated dungeons that spawn randomized enemy based on player’s level. In addition, rift also adds an extra challenge that offers more rewards than usual, it’s called Rifts Overdrive. There is also a room called Room of Duty that is located in the city of Ohrdor. However, you may only enter the room when you’re level is 25 or higher.
Room of Duty houses multiple challenges and dungeons such as Endless Tower and Lupa’s Labyrinth. It is the place that is good for grinding and hunting rare items. In addition, dungeons offer a lot more gold and resources compare to a normal one. Therefore, when you’re game character is broke, entering dungeons is a good way to increase your resources. Speaking of dungeons, the iconic time-attack dungeon from MU Online is also available in this game. However, you may only enter the Blood Castle Dungeon when your level 45 or higher.
As a player, it is so tough to level-up your character faster when you’re playing alone. It’s recommended that to level-up faster, playing party is a good choice. A group of 4 or 5 characters is pretty enough to conquer a dungeon considering that everyone is a very good player. In my point of view, a small party must consist at least one tank and one mage. Also, there must be a great damager that can deal pretty high damage in close combat and ranged combat. But in any case, teamwork is very vital to success.
Guild and PVP System
You can also create a guild or join a guild to acquire exclusive guild buffs and features available only to guilds. In order to create a guild, you must go to the Guild Alliance, Secretary Olson in Ohrdor’s Commercial District.
This system also promotes social interactions between players. In addition, it is also a good way to earn new friends. On the other hand, this game also features PVP system in which you can battle your friends or other players anywhere in the world. It is an honorable duel between two players in showcasing their character’s might and strength. In addition, you can also battle other players’ AI character in the Arena.
In every MMORPG, PVP is one of the most popular features that every player are hoping to have. Additionally, this feature will also boost the competitive spirit of the player. However, Webzen should have employed a more interactive PVP System than the usual one. For instance, in the Arena, it should be better to employ not only to battle AI characters but also a real-time battle between two players. Furthermore, there will be at least some kind of reward to the winner.
When you are opting to play this MU Legend Open Beta game, you must ensure that the requirements needed to acquire the game are met.
