Cool Free MMORPG

I gotta admit, Free Mac MMORPG's are difficult to find. World of Warcraft was always tempting, however it has a monthly cost. I am right now searching for an excellent MMORPG that is free and of course, OS X compatible. So far I've tried three that have their pros and cons (I didn't go into extreme detail). If any of you know anymore, post here

? Runescape
As we all know runescape is nifty online applet, that is pretty impressive for what it offers. It has no class restrictions (you can be any class), and you can train any skill. However, it does retain found classes (from the combat skill you train the most) which are, archers, mages, and warriors.

- Free for the limited world interface
- Has a very nice pvp and pking system
- Interesting way to calculate levels
- Graphics aren't the best, however they aren't that shabby
- For all the 'good' stuff you must pay for membership
- No mac client version of it yet..

? Eternal Lands
This is an exceptionally well done Mac OS X port, of the game Eternal Lands. Similar to runescape, there are no class restrictions, you can train any skill, be whatever you want to be. Still in the beta development stages, this game is proving to be a fun way to kill time.

- Nicely done graphics for a FREE game (except p2p races)
- Has an interesting built in guild system and unique chat system
- Friendly community, and nice players
- PVP and PK
- Summoning!!
- P2P races (The good ones too)
- Still in beta; several skills still need to be added upon (EG magic is a very weak skill compared to just plain attacking)
- Music for OS X port doesn't work yet

? Planeshift
A very nice eye candy OS X port of Planeshift, and again another beta in development stages. Didn't play it that long, but from the looks of it, a very nice camera mode, and spectacular graphics for this free game.

- Very nice graphics for a free Mac MMORPG
- Animations look nice
- Interesting camera modes, and superb developed stories

- Veeeeeerrrrrry Laggy, lag spikes here and there (OS X port only I believe, I was running it on a PowerPC G5 with Cable)
- Not all races are developed on


So if you know of any other cool OS X Free MMORPG's (except Oberin, sorry, just never could appreciate it), post here!

I didn't like that one you recently posted. However, I really enjoyed Graal.. The problem was it never saved. How do you get it to save? Whenever I quited it, it would merely start me from the beginning when I re-logged in. Does it do this for all trial users?

it shouldn't. that is weird.

i haven't tried that other one yet either. i was at and i saw the ad on a banner and thought it was pretty coincidental that i was seeing it right after reading your post so i thought i would let you know. i signed up, but i am too busy playing elder scrolls 3: morrowind right now to care about anything else.

Free to play with micro transactions is the only way to thrive in WoW's shadow IMO.

Boot camp

D&D Online is free to play.

The Old Republic is using micro payments, I am hoping that it will be free.


Torchlight is spawning a free to play MMO that should be done soon.

Heroes of Newerth - DotA (not an MMO) clone that is $30 and free to play online.
Zealot without a cause

I've started playing Oberin - pretty simple graphics, but I like it so far. Lots of interaction with other players, more literacy than you usually find on MMOs.
