With the success of World of Warcraft, there have been many games, especially free-to-play ones, that have used it as a template. At first glance, Last Chaos looks like one of these games; it’s set in a fantasy-based setting, it uses 3D graphics and takes many game mechanics from not only World of Warcraft, but other online role-playing games such as Lineage 2. However, Last Chaos offers a few changes to the formula that make it stand out.
The process of selecting your sex, race and class is nothing new in most online role-playing games, but Last Chaos differentiates this process in a surprising way. The sex you choose determines the class you can play; males can play as powerful melee-based classes such as Titans and Knights while females can choose from nimble classes such as the Rogue or classes that cannot take as much damage such as Mages and Healers. In addition, at Level 31 you can choose a subclass for each class, bringing the total class count to 18 classes total.
One interesting mechanic of Last Chaos is the ability to complete quests before receiving them. In most online role-playing games, killing 20 enemies outside of a village wouldn’t count towards that particular quest had you not previously received it. However, in Last Chaos, if your actions result in the completion of a quest objective, you are given the reward for that quest automatically even without receiving the quest.
One downside to many online role-playing games is that dungeons, or instances, require a group to complete; if you are a solo player, you must group with other players or skip that instance. In Last Chaos, solo instances exist tailored specifically for one person to finish, making Last Chaos ideal for someone who wants an online role-playing game but without the forced grouping.
Last Chaos feature a large number of skills, weapons, quests and regions; this content, combined with the ability to play a large amount of the game solo, makes Last Chaos stand out from other online role-playing games.
