How to play?
Explanation to understand concepts of this MMORPG
From the beginning of the game, each character has a race that determines his physical form and a class that determines what he excels at in the game. Throughout the game, each player's character learns skills that will determine how successful (or not) he will be at his craft. The first two attributes (race and class) are chosen by the player when creating his character. The skill attribute depends mainly on the experience during the game and is deeply influenced by the way of playing and the preferences of each player.
The action takes place in a virtual fictional world where the role of a character that interacts with other characters is adopted, whether they are controlled by other players or non-player characters. All interactions take place in a fantastic environment like in a traditional role-playing game. You can chat with other characters on the screen, and through interactions trade, negotiate, make friends or do other activities. While alone you can go to different places on the map to fish, hunt, kill zombies, among other available actions .
The virtual world of AO is populated by player characters of different races. Each one of them presents defects and virtues. At the beginning of the game, when creating a new character, the player has the possibility to choose the race of his character based on his expectations and preferences.
