There's something so unique and cute about Asda Story, that I might not be spending Christmas Day with my family tomorrow. ;^^ In every MMORPG I play, Fluffy is always there and I guess this game is just perfect for us.
Aside of course from being a full 3D MMORPG and its cute, anime-designed characters, the exciting part about it are the special skills only available to characters who have "soul mates". I remember a similar feature in Ragnarok Online which became available shortly after I decided to quit the game, but I'm not sure if the characters who obtain similar skills.
Another factor that "might" make us stay and play longer in Asda Story is the variety of skills present for every job class in the game. We once played Tales of Pirates Online but Fluffy grew tired of the limited skills available to our characters. Although Asda Story (as of now) is only in its beta version, and thus, the little bugs here and there, we're actually enthusiastic about doing our quests and getting stronger with our skills.
In the past MMORPGs we've played, if you can leave your player to sell items overnight, here in Asda Story you can make your characters dig for treasure without getting tired.
Also, it's the first time that I ever had an archer character (ranger). Not that I dislike archers (no pun intended), I just find them more complicated to play than the offensive melee character (like a swordsman) or the support caster (like a priest). So far, I really like my character's skills.
I was planning to groom her into a purely offensive character but since I'm not alone in the game (there's always Fluffy), I spared some points for her defense and support skills.
And so goes my Christmas wish.
More and more playing time with Fluffy.
