These class is well balanced with defense and attack. They can evolve into Adamantors or Demon Knights at level 10. They can use Crush Cart or Chariot.
Soolsa is mainly for spell casters. Their purpose is to be spell supportive magic or to use offensive attacks using magic. They will become either Taoistic Priests or Dark Soolsa at level 10. They use Catapult or Battle Wagon.
Sho Online is a fun MMORPG to play whenever you need to relax after activities. You may say that all games are designed for this, but still this game as more fun in it than others.
Whenever you need to battle the frogs, the monkeys and other monsters to wind experience points you will find a lot of weird and funny things after defeating them. Think only at the moment when after winning a battle with a frog you can collect a knife. That will make you smile thinking that this defies any logic. After all that frog used only her legs to beat you not a knife.
The bad thing about this game is that you find a lot of Chinese names for places, monsters, even items. After playing the game for a while you get used to this idiosyncrasies and you will be more focused on the action than the names of the places and items.
The game is free to play but it has some premium features because there are some items that need to be bought using credits of real life money.
