Lucent Heart Review
By Ange Perdu
Lucent Heart is a 3D anime style fantasy themed MMORPG featuring a comprehensive soul mate feature. Enter a cursed yet enchanted world with unpredictable weather and deadly monsters. Chosen by the Gods players become heroes on a mission to save troubled land of Acadia. Similar to Zodiac Online each character assumes an astrological sign which guides their destiny. Accomplish various quests, slay beasts, and duel other knights. Raid dungeons with friends or find your other half using the Cupid match-making service. Once a player has a lover they can participate in PK combat together and special couple journeys. Adopt a pet to serve as a companion. Ride an alpaca across the rugged terrain or practice your routine for the latest dance battle.
Exploring Wanderland, the Gameplay
Most of the gameplay consists of questing and crafting. There are endless missions to tackle in this mystical world. Players start out in the great Central City of Acadia known as Thereall. NPCs located in the area designate various tasks. These quests usually involve acquiring a particular object through monster killing. Slay evil Sprouts, Cave Frogs, Psycho Clowns, Busy Bees, Werewolves, Tattered Scarecrows, and Floating Magician Hands. Travel to Cole’s Farm to collect 20 blades of grass from Ragged Scarecrows or obtain 12 sprigs of parsley from the Thunder Clan Giants. Help out fellow citizens by defeating spellbound masks that sprung to life after the last storm. Many of the missions require knights to gather large quantities of a specific ingredient. Killing dozens of mutant seedlings or wolves becomes monotonous. The constant grinding can make the game feel repetitive at times. When heroes successfully complete a quest they earn coins, XP, and occasionally a rare item or two. Sometimes missions require players to explore dungeons in the form of an underground sewer maze. Open trap doors and maneuver through tunnels using the navigation map as a guide. Retrieve secrets from a chest or relay an urgent message to another NPC. The mouse, auto-walk, or standard WASD keys are used for movement. There’s also a nice magical dust trail that appears when manually traveling through different environments.
Weapons & Executioner’s Blow
There’s an innovative crafting system that lets heroes forge their own powerful weaponry. When a knight enters the Blacksmith Shop they’re surrounded by enormous
furnaces. Double clicking on any of the units prompts a crafting menu with an assortment of weapons. Create the Knife of Understanding, Clearness Scepter, Reinforced Heavy Shield, Long Sword, Sword of Knowledge, Wisdom Dagger, Rapid Knife, and Sword of Energy. Additional weapons unlock as players level up in their blacksmithing profession. Each item a material list associated with its construction. These resources are gathered by killing certain monsters. Collect steel ore, tree branches, bass crystal fragments, magic gems, first elements, silver nuggets, and glass. When enough has been accumulated the to perform in battle. They vary depending on a warrior’s class. The fast paced combat is very similar to Hero: 108 Online. Hitting the designated key will initiate a specific skill. Execute the Relentless Assault, Shield Slam, Tremor, Adrenaline Surge, Vengeful Blade, Rend, or the Executioner’s Blow. In terms of space the hot key is somewhat restricting. The combination of skills and specialized emote commands gives the game’s interface a cluttered feel.
Cupid the God of Love
Lucent Heart features an in-depth match-making and dating system that enables players to find the love of their life. Young warriors or mages can visit Cupid the God of Love to
help initiate a relationship. There are several stages and a test that must be passed before soul mate status is reached. The process is unique and rather extensive. Players have to list their desired partner conditions. Request a specific zodiac sign, time zone, level, gender, and other characteristics. The fill-in form can be general or detailed. Write an additional 128 words to describe who you are and what you’re looking for in a wizard. It’s very similar to real online dating. When Cupid pairs two players they start out as friends. Each player must take their own initiative to get to know each other and build up their relationship. Both players have to pass a compatibility test to enter couple status and reap the benefits. Once two users become soul mates they can quest together, enter instance dungeons, explore, get married, and display special couple restricted emotes. Make out with each other in the center of the town square or blow kisses while slaying mutated seedlings. The social aspects of this game are quite impressive. There are dozens of cool animated emotes to communicate with others. At any time players can challenge each other in a dance battle. This feature is not only creative but loads of fun. The various dance emotes allow users to create their own sequence of moves. Japanese style pop music automatically plays as Solar Guardians get funky. A variety of events are held for dance-offs, dungeon raids, and PvP battles. Winners usually receive a large sum of coins or a rare item.
Stylishly Dressed Alpacas
Heroes accumulate most of their weapons and equipment through quests or crafting. The merchants in Wanderland which can be scarce in certain locales also sell gear. The selection in each shop is small. Players can choose from a handful of items ranging from armor to food. The character customization options are also limited. Purchase the Acropolis Knight Helmet, Chest Armor, Battle Boots, Mystic Chaos Ring, Enigmatic Origin Earring, Precise Sniping Necklace, Stone Smashing Anklet, White Toast, Multigrain Bread, Lemonade, Iced Tea, Fortune Cookie, Blue Mana Potion, and Red Healing Tonic. An assortment of boosts for movement, attack, and incantations are available. Mounts and pets are earned by completing certain quests and leveling up. Ride a stylishly dressed Alpaca wearing a red scarf instead of walking. Unfortunately these features are only temporary. To own them permanently players must purchase them via the game’s Item Mall.
Final Verdict: Good
Lucent Heart is a fun and unique social MMORPG. Players become courageous knights fighting the powers of evil. Explore a world where the weather controls the inhabitants. Complete challenging quests solo or with a cherished mate courtesy of Cupid. The integrated match-making dating service allows players to establish the perfect relationship. Enter couple instanced dungeons, unlock special missions, fight together, earn bonuses, make out in public, and get married. Choose from six distinct crafting professions. Participate in fierce dance battles or traditional PvP combat. Although comparable to Hero: 108 Online and Zodiac Online this game hold its own. Fans of interactive emotes, soul mate features, and role-playing games will definitely enjoy this import from Japan.
