Culture of every nation is rooted deeply underneath the soil of history, drawing nutrition from there and supplying the further growth. While Greek and Roman mythologies are gems in the occidental crown, the oriental laurel also shines with its own jewels, such as the Samurai’ Way in Japan as well as the Yoga in India. Here in Grand Epic, the back story is woven with historical figures of ancient China with exotic eastern fantasy.
Grand Epic is a browser-based, real-time strategy, adventure-themed MMORPG against a fantasy setting which can be traced back from the origin of the Chinese nation, when Chiyou, a tribe leader in history, is waging wars against the Emperor Huang, the acknowledged ancestor of the nation. As usual, war is the starting point of the whole story. Players will start from creating their own avatars and joining one of the four factions, namely the Cave of Heaven’s Eye, the Mountain Shu, the Mountain Crane’s Call and the Valley of Flowers, which are with unique backgrounds in Chinese culture. Mountain Crane’s Call is the base for Daoism School while Mountain Shu is home to disciples of Emperor Huang, for example. And each faction boasts its own warriors’ way and wields with unique weapons with saber, sword, rod and bow respectively, which will help give full play to its own cutting edges in battle, be it ranged attacking ability or powerful healing attribute.
Apart from customized characters and culture-oriented factions, this game also reputes with its diversified pet system, which includes dozens of species, real or fictional, such as panda, penguin, tiger, unicorn, phoenix and mermaid etc. Players can get their fighting pets by three methods, that is, to capture a monster and tame it into a pet, to receive one as rewards for successful quests, or to buy an egg in the mall and thatch it. However they are gained, these pets are blessed with special attributes, able to learn certain skills and helpful in combat. Besides, Grand Epic is also featured with its mounts, particularly its communal mounts which are designed to carry more than one player. This mount system is also sophisticatedly designed that each mount can be equipped with five pieces of items, such as the saddle and armor, which can all upgrade from the basic iron level to the highest sixth level of wrath.
Yet the list of its features is long like the unmentioned large crafting system, overwhelming quest system and incentive subscription system. Intricate as it is, this game is like a densely connected web. So why not try it by yourself and decide whether it traps your heart?
