We have a new interview with Raiderz Executive Producer, Mark Hill, as he talks to iTZKooPA about Perfect World Entertainments newest free-to-play MMORPG, Raiderz. The guys cover a lot of different subjects including the games action-combat, monster hunting, the item shop and much more.
We learn that monsters can drop items that are “infused” with different skill sets, allowing players to inherit skills of different class types. For examples, a Mage can pick up a two-handed axe and their skill bar will change allowing them to not only use the axe, but they receive a whole new set of abilities to go along with it for as long as that axe is equipped.
Raiderz uses a classless system, where players are not tied into any one specific class. The system is based on four basic classes, healer, ranged DPS, tank and melee, but once the player hits level 10, they are able to put skill points in any of the four classes allowing to create hybrid classes.
Mark revealed that closed beta is scheduled for sometime in either May or June, with open beta following in the third quarter.

Is there a better way to start my blogging career than letting you all know about my gaming background? I don’t think so, but somehow someone is going to come up with a better idea in the comments and I’ll end up looking really rogue-ish silly.
Kershocker's Armory Picture
Oh well, let me introduce myself first. My name is Carlos, also known as Kershocker. Some of you may recognize that name. If so, that’s because I’ve been following this website since it was launched and I like sharing my opinions with others. I’m currently living in Peru and I’m studying Economics and International Business at the university.
Follow me after the cut to learn more about my gaming years.
I’m pretty sure most of us did not play MMORPGs during our childhood. Well, I didn’t, anyway. During that time, I was deeply in love with console games. Super Nintendo and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers kept me busy for a while until the Nintendo 64 came along, with Star Fox 64 being my game of choice.
After that, I was forced to stay away from video games for a couple of years due to some health issues. I came back during the PlayStation 2 era, which I really enjoyed. Guitar Hero, God of War and Devil May Cry are amazing games. Most recently, the PlayStation 3 came out and I bought it immediately upon release. What can I say? PlayStation is my favorite console.
I’m only 18, so, as you may imagine, I have not played as many MMOGs as my fellow Lore Hounds. Still, I think it would be interesting to recap my history just to let you know I’m not a complete rookie when it comes to video games. Continue Reading
