Any other RPSers playing EU Vindictus?
Vindictus, the Source based action-MMO, has finally hit Europe and has left beta, so thought I'd redo this OP.
This be an action-MMO type thing which is essentially a scrolling brawler on a big scale. You choose a fighting style in the form of a present character, customise them, then run through stages. It runs off of Source and has physics for throwing things around the room, air combat, and hilarious boob physics. It also offers voice chat and looks quite pretty. Probably at least worth a crack until it gets repetitive.

Right now the current avaliable characters are Lann, a straight up damage dude, Fiona, a more balanced melee character with more defensive capability and Evie, the caster. Coming futurely are Karok, a big melee guy with a tree, and some archer dude who nobody outside of Korea knows much of yet.
The basic flow of gameplay is that you get a quest or several, then run whatever dungeon is associated with the quest. Each dungeon has a story arc associated with it, and once you conclude the arc you open up the next dungeon. Like a scrolling brawler, dungeons involve running through killing trash then killing off a bigger enemy. There are raids, but unlike the WoW school of raids they involve one or two rooms then a REALLY big boss, the first of which being a massive polar bear. You can roll with 4 in dungeons, or 6 in raids, so there's plenty of scope for playing with friends or just random people. Quests also have various modifiers you can add to spice things up or just make things harder, and also have sub missions for bonus rewards. There's a title system which involves doing wacky things such as kicking everything to death that rewards you with stat boosts, so it's well worth doing if you can.
There doesn't seem to be a need to be anal about character choice, everyone can deal damage to bosses so it depends more on personal skill than anything. Evie's always going to be useful just for rezzing and healing, though.
