You might want to give the combat and quests another try in Free Realms. It's not going to win any awards for innovation but it does what it does very well.

The members-only content is especially very nice with some very well done instances and fun combat jobs like the Archer.


Is there a level limit before I can be something other than Brawler? The brawler is only level 2 and I'd want to be a Mage.

Winged Nazgul

Nope, no such limit.


If you are up for a single player rpg game I strongly recommend Jade Empire (PC or XBox). It's rpg lite (combining action with rpg elements) but it has a wonderful oriental / steampunk storyline that can easily suck you in.

@Winged - Thanks. Next time I'll give that a try. FR has sucked my older daughter into the MMO scene. *GASP* I was telling Tipa that I showed it to her as a mini-game portal. She loves mini games. She's the only one of us that was not interested in MMOs.

I spoke to her a few days after and asked her if she'd found new games when she replied yes but they had her doing all sorts of other fun stuff like finding people, looking for items and killing stuff. My mouth fell open. I was like yer questing?!?! She had no clue what I meant by that but when I explained she said, "Yeah, I quest." I almost fainted. She's 26 and has REFUSED to play MMOs with us over the years. I think FR is going to usher in a new era of casual MMO gamers.

@mbp - Hmmm, we had Jade for the Xbox and I didn't get into it so much but thanks for the suggestion. I'll give FR quests another try since I'm a member. If that doesn't hit the spot the TS3 here i come.


Wizard is a lot of fun, especially when you get the freeze skill and get to freeze the monsters in mid-attack and they ice over. Nice! Setting the various Yeti on fire is great too!

As long as you have level one in Brawler or some other combat job, you can start the Wizard job by seeing Fizzlestick just north of Lakeshore area.

"I think FR is going to usher in a new era of casual MMO gamers."

I thought the same thing when I posted my first thoughts during the FR Beta:


BTW, ingame concert tonight at 4PM PST by The Dares performing the Free Realms theme song. This is set to go off the same time as their scheduled performance at this year's E3.

I've just taken up Yoga and I'm loving it. I think it's going to be great for my stress and general well being. Sitting in front of a computer all day is killer for your body.


I know how you feel about stress. I recently accepted a new job, and drove from Idaho to Pennsylvania. I am staying with my wife's cousin and his wife/children for a few weeks until I find a place of my own. My wife and kids will be staying in Idaho for the next year because we don't want to rush a move out here and refuse to move the kids during a school year. So, I am starting a new job, in an area I am unfamiliar with, with people I have never met. Most of all, I really miss my family. Perhaps I need to start walking at night.

I hope you are doing well Saylah in these times of great stress...

I may be firing up an MMO again since I will have time at night/weekends without my family this next long year.
