|Zentia is the first full 3D MMO of Chung You, after many 2,5D successes. Many interesting features, a funny lore and a lots of ideas. So we told with the developers.|
Zentia is based on an ancient Chinese fairytale involving 3 immortal brothers. The 3 brothers rule the underworld, mortal world, and immortal plane respectively. One day the youngest brother, the lord of the underworld, decides to attempt to overthrow the oldest brother and become the leader. During the fight the seals that kept the three realms separated became torn. The journey then begins with 22 immortals, from which players can choose to start their adventures, to fix up the chaos that was left from the 3 brothers.
MMORPGITALIA: What will be the most distinctive features of the game?
There are many unique features in the game, but I’d have to say the Jail System. In many areas in Zentia, forced PvP is not possible; however, in a PK area, if another player kills you, it is possible to report the player to an NPC judge. If the judge determines that you indeed were wronged, a warrant for the arrest of the other player will be issued. This means that if the offending player shows up in any town, the captors will come for him, beat him up, and apply penalties to the player. If waiting for the offender to show up in town seems like an insufficient punishment, players can buy “wanted posters” from a local warden officer. The offending players name is automatically announced; the player turns red and is forced to accept any and all PvP challenges. Players who kill a red criminal are eligible for justice rewards.
MMORPGITALIA: What kind of character’s progression will Zentia have?
Characters advance in levels, skills and personal attributes. Levels are gained by experience through questing, PvE and/or dancing. Combat skills are improved through training with an NPC instructor. Life skills are increased by using the skill. Personal attributes are increased by doing favors for various immortals.
MMORPGITALIA: Classes in Zentia.
Zentia has 8 classes- Vajra Guardian, Raksha Warrior, Blade Warden, Master Summoner , Stormlord, Fire Mage, Divine Enchanter, and Dark Revenant. They range from pure fighters to pure magic users and many combinations in between. The best thing about this is that players can choose any class with any of the characters. Players can try out them all and find out which one is more of their gameplay style.
MMORPGITALIA: Pets and mount and housing in the game.
Players have the ability to capture more than 50% of the creatures they encounter. Some of these captured monsters can be trained to be pets and some can become mounts. Pets give passive buffs and verbal support while fighting. Mounts can be ridden into battles, trained to allow players to fight from their backs and even trained to attack. Zentia has extensive guild housing that extends past the four walls of the guild building and into a mini guild zone, complete with NPCs, quests and a guild tree that drops presents every day.
MMORPGITALIA: End-game and PvP options in Zentia.
Zentia is a world without an end. However it is up to the community as a group to continue to open up the world at certain levels through the Heavenly Test. The Heavenly Test is a series of quests and tasks that require the entire community to accomplish cooperatively. The Test finally culminates in a fierce extensive raid that requires at least 10 players but supports up to the recommended total of 25 players to complete. Rewards for completion include special titles with buffs for the raid group, names of those same group members written for eternity on a temple wall in game, and unlocking of further epic content.
MMORPGITALIA: Could you talk about the guild system?
Players start out creating a clan and after level 40, players can create a guild. The guild system is fantastic. Each guild has their own guild house and guild “yard” complete with their own quests, NPCs, storage, and a guild tree that blooms twice a day with gifts for guild members.
MMORPGITALIA: Will there be only a global version of Zentia or do you plan to release an European one?
The global version is made to accommodate players worldwide. European players can download and log in now during the Early Access Beta.
