Regnum Online is a MMORPG inviting you to PLAY FOR FREE with no level or time restrictions. All that is required is that you fight for your realm. In addition to usual character development present in other games of the genre, the game focuses on the conflict of 3 realms in which players take part, fighting against characters of opposing factions and capturing fortresses and castles aside from the usual player vs monster combats.
The game has currently more than 100,000 subscriptions and has received a Sapo award as best Multiplayer Game of Argentina, in the EVA 06 (a national videogames exposition), in 2006. NGD studios recently made a contract with Gamigo, a German gaming company and opened a German Server. Soon after, NGD added another German server to meet the demand for the game.
Regnum is designed to allow the player to decide what they want their character to become. Each race has the three main classes. They are warrior, archer, and mage. Once your character reaches level ten, he/she will be able to choose one of two disciplines; these disciplines are split between offensive and defensive disciplines. They are as follows:
Knight: Defensive discipline. Increases the player's ability to take on damage.
Barbarian: Offensive discipline. Increases the attack that the player gives.
Marksman: Offensive discipline. Increases the player's ability to make damaging attacks.
Hunter: Defensive discipline. Allows the player to train a pet and use skills to make a target easier to hit.
Warlock: Offensive discipline. Gives the player the ability to cast devastating spells on the target.
Conjurer: Defensive discipline. Allows the player to summon creatures and use defensive spells.
Attributes are the areas that define your character. There are five attributes that will show how strong your character is, how fast the health and mana bar regenerate, and how often you can hit a challenging opponent.
Strength is an attribute that reflects your characters physical abilities. It influences attack power for warriors and carry weight.
Intelligence affects the recovery rate of your characters mana (powers) bar and the mage's spell values.
Dexterity affects the agility and defense of your character. It also affects the attack strength of archer.
Concentration refers to the ability of a character to focus and ensure a direct hit on the target.
Constitution determines how much health your character has, and how fast the health will regenerate.
As you progress through the world of Regnum, you will be rewarded gold, items, and most importantly, experience. The experience point system allows you to advance your characters progress. When you first start the game, your character will have no experience points, and will have a reflected level of 1. In your first few moments of playing you will find that after you successfully defeat a creature, or complete a quest, you will be awarded experience points. If you look at the top outline of your action bar, you will see a glowing blue/green line. When this line reaches the right edge of your screen, your character will gain a level. Increasing your characters level will increase all of your characters attributes, award you skill points so you can purchase new powers from your trainer, and enable you to use new weapons and armor.
The PvP aspect of the game is the highly competitive gaming side of Regnum. Most players, even heavy PvE players, will find themselves having fun with the PvP element of the game. There are a variety of PvP aspects to Regnum that offer a rich game play experience.
You will find Arenas in the safe zones of each realm. These Arenas allow players from the same realm to duel in a safe area without any punishment for losing.
PvP areas of the game are in dedicated zones of the world. For the most part battling and realm conflicts take place in the conflict zone which is accessible by passing through the great wall in your realm. The conflict zone is an area of land that touches each of the warring realms. It is here that you can be killed by any players from other realms.
Unique to Regnum, and at the core of the PvP gaming, are your realm's strongholds. These can be your realms forts, castles, and other structures. These structures are strategic points that are key to your realms survival. Therefore you will need to work together with other players to both protect your structures as well as attack and take control of your enemies structures. To add a level of competitiveness to the PvP experience, the status of your kingdom and what realms hold what strongholds is displayed on the website on the "War Status" page.
Points awarded to players who do great deeds for their realm. These deeds include defeating an enemy player from an opposing realm. All realm points are tracked and ranked on the Regnum official ranking website.
