    Good game; a bit grindy though

    I was in the smallest server, Ruairi and it was basically empty except Ch1. The community was great; I rarely saw any arguments in the later days when I played. The sad thing though was many of the players in Ruairi left and it was just too difficult to get anyone to play with you unless it was dailies or you had a bunch of friends. Also, many of the skills are really grindy taking a few days to weeks to master. Even though this game was really grindy, the community and storyline was amazing :).

    Decent game but a bit dated

    So Mabinogi for many years was my favorite game to play. The community was great! The customization was endless. The kawaii feel was nice. There was plenty to do and they were always adding content. So overall the game had been great for over 5 years for me.

    I will say this. The devs take forever to roll out fixes. If they ever do...they cant do much because the communication between them and KR seems almost non existent so we miss out on a lot of events and content. They recently started repeating the same events because they have nothing else that they can do and are on their last leg.

    The community is okay depending on the server. Tarlach is probably on to avoid. Alexina seems to be a better fit. They don't seem interested in ever releasing server changes for the dying servers. But, if they ever do then I think they could bring it back to life and if they are able to release new content or remotely catch up to KR.

    I spent hundreds of dollars on the game over the years. The pets and the cosmetics were worth it. Would I go back? Possibly...but the new content would need to be just that...new and not recycled.

    Still for anyone new....great game easily enjoyable.

    Hmm.

    I didn't really like this game. When I was first put into the game I had to do an endless amount of walking to get to my quests. Though i'm sure this game is fun for many people who don't really mind, I found it a bit frustrating. Though i'm willing to try this game out again for what i'm told happens when you reach higher levels.

    Dated but still awesome!

    First off, I found mabinogi looking for a game with similar game mechanics as the in anime game Sword Art Online. Mabinogi was on the top of the list of mmo's similar to it. To out on top of that not long after I signed up they ended up doing a SAO tie in! Which sadly I missed... But once I got the game running I found myself having a blast. The graphics look that of a mix between a n64 and a ps2 had a lovechild sure... But the gameplay kinda makes up for that. Soon my fiance moved in with me and we would both stay up well into the night playing together side by side and meeting tons of players who were very generous and kind. We have made several friends here and the game itself is a joy to play. The one complaint I may have is with nexons use of game gaurd or whatever it's called... It's out of date and wasn't compatible with newer versions of Windows at all. So we had to find out own work around to even play the game again. But overall we both live the game and hope one day we may be able to play mabi on the go via an Android app! Ibreccomend this game to anyone who enjoys MMOs. Also we liked he more anime style of the game as well. All the options to customize are nice though we wish here were more options at times..

    Needs more improvements

    Based on my 2 years of experience in the game :

    Pros :
    This game has a very interesting content, mostly based on Celtic Mythology.

    The system where you can rebirth over and over syncs with the game well since you need to get more and more AP as you continue.

    Skill-based-character-stats is a very interesting.
    The game always has new content every year (big ones) and a lot of event, monthly.

    Good community (Not all).

    Cons :
    A lot of BUGS that were remained unfixed. (sometimes after a year, it's still not fixed, although a lot of players complaint.)

    This fact kinda makes me feel that the Developers couldn't care less about the BUGS and just force more updates into the game, as they just take the content directly from NEXON Korea and translate + transcribe into the game.

    Most players stuck at the mid-levels of the game.

    Since Mabinogi NA is the only English server, players from all over the world who understands ENGLISH and not (Chinese, Japanese or Korean), are forced into this server which has ping issues (for South East Asian players especially.)
