Its called Rappelz yes I know stupid name.

What the game is about

3 Races, Deva, Asura, and Gaia.

The Deva (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deva) are a light-based race. They are defense-oriented, focusing on the powers of healing and buffing.
Guide - The Guide is the starting class for the Deva. The skills Smite and Minor Healing are learned by this class.
Holy Warrior - The Holy Warrior is similar to a Paladin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paladin). It is a warrior which benefits from additional healing capabilities and defensive buffs. According to many players, Holy Warriors are the best tanks in the game due to its high defense and hit points. However due to its slightly lower attack, monsters might sometimes attack other party members that are dealing more damage. This can be avoided by using "threat level" increasing attacks.
Shield charge skill allows them to attack over distances without warning.
Cleric - The Cleric is the main healer/buffer of Rappelz, sacrificing soloing abilities to aid allies. The Cleric has very powerful buffs that raises party member's abilities and powerful healing spells to save party members from dying. However, the Kahuna class also has some powerful buffs and a healing spell.
Can get a spell to bring dead players back to life, others must use a scroll item to do this.
Breeder - The Breeder is Deva's summoner. It concentrates more on creature defense buffs and raising creatures quickly. Asura
The Asura (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asura) are the dark race of Rappelz, concentrating more on fast attacks and evasion.
Stepper - The Stepper is the starting class for the Asura. The basic skills Charge Swing and Deep Evasion is learned by this class.
Strider - The Strider is an assassin-like class that uses high evasion and attack power.
Gets upgrades for the cross bow and good with fast attack weapons like dual-wielded daggers, but not as defensive as the fighter or holy warrior.
Dark Magician - The Dark Magician uses spells that drain and weaken the enemy. Has a life drain spell, and gets the ability to transfer their hitpoints to others. Dark Magicians use spells that can do more damage than any other classes in the game.
Sorcerer - The Sorcerer is a summoner that uses buffs that increase the attack power of their creatures. Sorcerers are commonly regarded as the strongest players in the game, able to solo entire dungeons with a good pet. Gaia
The Gaia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaia) are a neutral human race who generally have mix of defensive and attack skills.
Rogue - The Rogue is the starting class for Gaia.
Fighter - Fighters generally do heavy amounts of damage at slower rates than the Asura Strider and have better defense. Along with the Holy Warrior they are the best at with standing getting hit. The Fighter generally does more damage than the Holy Warrior but has lower hit points and defense.
They use "Spiracles" skills which require "Spiracles charge".
They get long bow and spear skill boosts.
Kahuna - The Kahuna is somewhat of a hybrid between a fighter and a spellcaster. Their attack spells are mediocre when compared to a mage's and must rely on melee for most damage. It is more similar to the Deva Holy Warrior than the Dark Mage in terms of damage dealing. Unlike the Holy Warrior, however, the Kahuna class lacks a high amount of hit points, instead relying upon buffs and party members to remain alive. The Kahuna class lacks the same prowess in healing abilities that the Deva Cleric has, though several buffs and a single decent healing spell allows them to sometimes replace Deva Clerics in the support role of large groups.
Spell-Singer - The Spell-Singer is a summoner that has some attributes to help their pets, but has many abilities and attack spells similar to Fighter and Kahuna allowing it to fulfil many roles in parties. However it has no healing abilities, and unless able to be managed correctly, may be a difficult class for soloing. Actions in the game aren't mouse clicks but Icons that you assign to hotkeys. The game has a huge amount of pets.

Here is some of the info I got from Wiki

I don't mind paying .50 per day to get in on a real MMO :D

EQ2 PVP is where its at! Last night I was playing on my alt Shadowknight and there was a huge pvp raid going on, 3 full groups vs another 3 groups. Pure mayhem, but a lot of treasure chests left over once we wiped those scoundrels twice. :D

I will be very happy when the MMO genre finally will break ranks with the whole fantasy theme. Sure it got the market where it's at today, but so much more can be done with the same kind of game.

There have been attempts at mixing the MMO with the FPS, but they all suck thus far. Hopefully when systems become more powerful we will see the genre stray into new avenues. Just think of where a war simulation could go using a MMO framework.

Actually this game is quite good. It doesnt take long to gain levels or skills. It takes about 30-45 mins to get to lvl 10 if your playing by yourself.

Although I doubt I'll ever pay for an MMO again, more because it ruins lives than the cost ;), I agree with you. If it's free there is probably a reason why.
