Besides, the weapon will also give the corresponding proficiency and allow the owner to access additional passive and active skills. There will be four different types to choose.
In addition, Archlord 2 highlights an engaging combat system featuring chained skills, some specific combinations of multiple skills requiring players to perform perfect timing and right order of attacks to deal tons of damage to monsters and players.
Archlord 2 is a medieval fantasy-based MMORPG set
in the mysterious world of Chantra. Players will join in a never-ending conflict
between two opposing factions of the Azuni and the Crunn. They will be able to
satisfy their thirst for power by participating in enormous PvP Battles holding
up to 400 players, and fighting to claim the ultimate prize and to become the
Archlord, the entire world’s supreme ruler.
