Jun. 23Korea, Online, VideoComments Off on Tree of Savior Revealed Off-hand Items and Comapanion Systems
Highly-anticipated MMORPG <Tree of Savior> revealed in-game play trailer for the first time on its official blog last week. The released trailers show battle systems and in-game pet system ‘companioin.’
Players can hold a sub-weapon such as shield, dagger, or other magic items not for battle on left hand. Depending on what off-hand item you hold, battle style totally changes regardless of classes.
With a shield, you can be a traditional tanker by blocking a enemy’s attack while you can kill monsters faster with a dagger. A magic fan can create storms that thrust enemies away from you, and an umbrella or a bubble making toy may do nothing, really nothing.
‘Companion’ is simply a pet system of other MMORPG. Players can raise companion by feeding and stroking them with love. Some companions may fight along with you or let you mount themselves if they think you are a trustworthy friend. So, they are not just a pet, mount, or something that damages monster along with you. They are literally companion of yours. They may equip items as well later.
