« ROM Taborea Living Contest: I’m now one of “those” people... | Main | ROM: Pictorial Diary of a Week’s Worth of ROM »

February 07, 2009



Great way to put it, actually. RoM is shaping up as a nice free alternative for those unwilling to pay for or not already playing a big subscription fantasy MMO.


While I tend to agree with a lot of what you are saying, I am actually one of those people whom IS replacing a subscription MMO with ROM. After two years of WoW, a couple of flirtations with LOTRO, and a brief stint in GW (albeit free MMO in its own right), I am finding ROM to be refreshing. While the interface and questing is a lot like WoW and LOTRO, and the graphics remind me of LOTRO, I am loving a lot of the little things that you have touched upon in your blog. The fact that I can have every profession (up to a point) is very nice, no longer do I have to figure out which two professions I should do and roll several alts or spend massive $$ for the mats I need for the professions I am unable to learn. I also love the dual-class system. I am enjoying ROM enough to say goodbye to WoW (which I was going to do anyway when my subscription is up in March - stupid me with a 6-month subscription...grrr...). I can play ROM as often and as hardcore as I want to, get nearly the same experience as in a paid MMO, and I am paying nothing up front or on a monthly basis.

Here is a big thanks to Saylah for pointing this game out to me, and for being so nice in-game!!!


Alysianah aka Saylah

You're welcome Roma. I think I'm going to do something I've never done before which is start a guild. If I hadn't just spent 30K gold on a shield and 2nd & 3rd pieces to a nice set I would do it now. Unfortunately, you need 40K gold I think to start a guild.

I think it would be good to have a common group to come back to as people come in and out of the game. With it's similarity to other games people may come and go since this is free. With a guild of our own, you'd always have somewhere to come back to when you want. I need 3 other people and 40K gold. Once I have the gold I'll post and would appreciate people logging on at a specified time to help me create the guild charter.


Funny, I was just thinking about doing the same thing. I have started a couple in WoW, so if you need help or even would like me to start it I am up for it. Whatever works...



come to Darkfall darling. u dont need to suffer anymore (not true but i think u get the point)
