Anyone else playing the beta? Seems like a good inventive take on the MMO. It's by the same group that did Age of Conan, fwiw.

You essentially don't have classes or levels in the traditional sense. You have builds and decks. You quest/kill and build up skill points and anima points. The skill points go towards weapon and armor quality level. The anima points go towards purchasing abilities. There are 9 basic weapon abilities each with subsets for specific functions. Then there are 3 side abilities for basic group dynamics. Abilities can be stored with armor layout so you can be a healer, a tank, or just DPS all depending on how you spent your points and what you want to be for that encounter.

The beta (closed and open) are continuing till the end of June then they'll have the launch.

If anyone is getting the game or wants in, there's a few more days left in the closed beta. I should have an invite code left. They have a NPC set-up so you can max your character in the beta and try out all the content.
