Let the gamer beware, Forsake this game!

Condolences, dear seekers, for Perfect World Entertainment's Forsaken World (formerly "Project EM"/PEM), MMORPG. This site was once filled with hope, but now serves as a warning to gamers with even the slightest glimmer of interest.

Forsaken World has been released in "Open Beta", and brings SHAME to PWE and it's parent Company, PWB (Perfect World Beijing). FW is a Flagship of Corporate Greed, and Poor Craftsmanship..

"Come, mourn with me! Practice well your Dirges, your Nocturnes, and your Vespers! Come grieve with me, Dark Children, and together we shall conduct a Grand Funeral, scored in blood!"

We shall hunt elsewhere for the promises left unfulfilled by this Forsaken World.

XP SKills

 Ever play a single player game where you build up a "rage meter", then pull off some really cool "uber attack"? Feels good, huh? Too bad that don't have that in mmo's huh? Oh, wait....now they do!

Welcome to the "XP Skill" system of Forsaken World!. Now, those of you who read "Forsaken Journal" regularly may have noticed that in the player screenshots, we see there are not 2, but 3 bars. Red and Blue? Health and Mana, obviously..but I always wondered "what is the Green Bar for?" That, dear seekers, is the "XP Skill" bar...your own personal "Rage Meter". Yeah, special moves, ftw! But hey, guess what? This is Forsaken World, where enough is never enough. Each race gets it's own XP Skills!

Not only does each race get it's own skills, each skill has it's own attack pattern. One XP skill may attack mobs horizontally, some may "AoE" in a sphere, and some may spike on their own. 
Looks like your XP skills will be upgradable through quests, and certain skills are level based, (so no Dragon Ball "kameamea" at level one, sorry.)  However, XP Skills will have NO EFFECT in PVP. So, no "save up, PKgoBoom, and leave". XP Skills are PVE, only.

 XP Skill "Fire Trap". Click, click, BOOM!
