Thousands of abilities across 18 classes and many non-class skills means there's always more to learn and new tactics to try. Those 18 classes range from the wholly unique, like the time-wielding Depthswalkers or the wormhole-using Serpentlords to equally unique takes on favorites like Knights, where you'll be doing a lot more than just swinging a sword. Learn More Become a Mining Magnate Our system of mining lets players own and operate mining businesses complete with Legions that are used to both defend and attack other players' mines. All production of many types of minerals and other materials are in the hands of players, and real skill is involved - if you operate your mining business poorly, you're nearly guaranteed to lose money, whereas those who are the best at the system can really clean up. Learn More Own and Manage a Shop All of the player run cities in Achaea have a number of player run shops, and this means opportunity for the business minded adventurer. Combined with a tradeskill or an importation business you can sell custom creations, necessary curatives, deadly venoms, commodities, and even exotic treasures to the masses with coin to spend. Of course, shops in Achaea are limited in quantity, to ensure there's potential value in being a shopkeeper, and you typically need to acquire one from another player. Learn More Explore a Vast World Search out the secrets of Achaea, visit every far flung island and hidden cavern. This is not an easy task, as Achaea's world is absolutely massive - seriously. Two continents - Sapience and Meropis, many, many islands islands, and multiple other planes of existence really add up.
