MU Online is an isometric fantasy massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) which was created in the Korean Gaming Industry, but slowly captured the market worldwide due to its game design and factors. It came to the markets in 2001. Getting started with the game is extremely easy as all it takes is for you to sign-up with a legitimate account on the WebZen website for authentication, once done, you can start playing the game when of course it has been downloaded. Almost all operating systems are supported as long as they have a 64-bit architecture. Once the game has launched, you’ll be asked to validate your account information by re-logging into the servers, and voila, you’re ready to play the game.
Players, when starting the game, are asked to choose and build their character from the eight different character classes and then are allowed to begin their adventures. The eight types are – Dark Wizard, Dark Knight, Elf, Magic Gladiator, Dark Lord, Summoner, Rage Fighter, and Grow Lancer. Each class, of course, has its own specific skill set, powers, and items. As these characters are chosen by players level-up, they can upgrade their abilities, strengths, and weapons to get stronger and more strategic. They gain access to new skills, grants, spells, wings, etc. It is also made possible to change their appearance. Each character has different magic’s and spells and it, like many other MMORPGs, takes mana or MP or magic point to cast spells.
You can contact players playing the game through the in-game communication option which includes communication via text. Through this, the players can ask others to join their servers, parties, or indulge in a co-op session.
While starting the game for the very first time you are greeted with a message box asking you to join a particular mu online server for playing. Servers are playing regions set by the area they are located in. For example, a person situated in the European part is suggested to join a European server, and similarly for the players in other areas. Initially, there were servers for almost every region available except America and Europe. Players speaking English or any of the other European languages were stuck with servers with people speaking Oriental languages. However, with a recent update, MU has added servers for both – America and Europe – for the betterment of the players.
