Eudemons Online Overview
Eudemons Online is a free-to-play fantasy MMORPG set in the mythic fantasy world of Cronus. Players pick from one of six classes: Warrior, Mage, Paladin, Vampire, Necromancer, and Shadow Knight; allowing players access to a wealth of skills and unique Eudemons to help on their quest. Eudemons, as the game is named for, refer to the robust pet system that allows players to hatch, evolve, train, and enter battle with over one hundred different Eudemons, bringing up to three into battle at a time. The game gives experience at lightning speed, making it possible to reach level 20 in only 15 minutes of game play just by grinding some of the low level enemies. One of the other features of Eudemons Online are its PvP mechanics, which span from player vs. player dueling and open world player kill to all-out legion wars and PvP tournaments.
Eudemons Online Key Features:
- Six Unique Classes – play as six unique classes, male or female: Warrior, Mage, Paladin, Vampire, Necromancer, and Shadow Knight.
- Eudemon System – collect over one hundred unique Eudemons that can be hatched, evolved, leveled, and brought into battle to help as a shield, an attacker, or a support.
- Legion Wars and Tournaments – join up with a Legion and partake in the game’s Legion Wars where Legions duke it out for the top ranking, or partake in tournaments to raise your individual rank.
- Social Focus – get the aid of a friendly mentor, marry a significant other, and join a Legion of active, similar-minded players.
- Experience Skills – on top of regular class skills, every class has an XP skill which allows them to unleash massively destructive attacks once their experience bar fills.

Eudemons Online Classes
Mage – elemental damage dealer with low physical attack and defense that is balanced out by their high magic attack and defense. Their high-level skill is Thunder, a popular ability used for PK situations whose strength can be doubled if a Eudemon is summoned as the spell is cast.
Warrior – physically tough and easy to play, limited only by their stamina points which allows them to perform their jumping skills, such as Chain Chop or Flying Chop.
Necromancer – combination of damage reduction and magic skills, amplified by their strong Eudemon and necro creature summoning skills.
Paladin – former mages who gave up their souls in exchange for excellent physical and magic power, though they master neither.
Vampire – also known as Night Walkers, Vampires rely less on Eudemons in combat than other classes, permanently converging with them to power up their Blood Soul through sacrifice. They attack with claws and gain a special class-specific mount when their Blood Soul reaches ten stars.
Shadow Knight – ancient warriors that wield powerful spears in combat, boasting high physical attack and defense.
Eudemons Online Review
If you’ve played any of TQ Digital’s other games, Eudemons Online will feel a bit too familiar. I’m not sure why TQ Digital does this, but all of their games; Zero Online, Conquer Online, Eudemons Online and Crazy Tao have virtually the same core gameplay, interface and features. The only thing that differentiates TQ Digital’s games from each other is their graphics and some other minor differences. If you’re going to play one of TQ Digital’s games, it might as well be Eudemons or Zero Online as they’re the most feature rich and have the largest playerbase. Even though Eudemons Online plays a lot like several other games, it’s still enjoyable.
Upon logging in and creating my character, I wasn’t surprised to learn that the game had a very limited character creation system, as all of TQ Digital’s games have the same issue. Character creation is limited to selecting a gender, an avatar and one of the game’s three classes, Warrior, Magician and Paladin. Upon creating my Magician and entering the game world, I was pleased to find out that Eudemons had the same auto movement feature that Zero Online had. The auto moving feature, also called path finding, allows players to quickly locate and automatically move to any NPC in town by simply selecting it from the path finding dropdown list. The drop down list also includes nearby hunting spots outside of town, so players will never become lost. One complaint I had with Eudemon’s core gameplay is that the game feels way too easy. My level 1 magician was able to quickly kill dozens of monsters outside of town with ease by simply spamming my area of effect spell ‘WindBeads’. The monsters feel more like XP piñatas than they do monsters, as they often don’t even try to attack you back while you blast them with spells. What makes the combat even more broken though is the game’s ‘XP skills’ which are ridiculously over powered and poorly designed.
XP Skills? What are those?
If you’re going to play Eudemons, you need to understand how the game’s ‘XP skills’ work. When the yellow meter above the hotkey area fills up, players can use their powerful ‘XP skills’ which last for a good 20 seconds or so and allow players to obliterate almost any enemy in a single hit. On my level 29 Magician my regular spells deal 150-500 damage, but my ‘XP skills’ deal well over 12,000 damage a hit, and the fact that I can use them for a full 20 seconds or so makes it even more imbalanced. Eudemons Online awards experience points based on damage dealt, so the experience gained while using ‘XP skills’ are simply massive. You’d imagine that since the ‘XP skills’ are so powerful it would take a great deal of effort to fill up the yellow ‘XP skill’ meter, but that isn’t the case here. In fact, the meter fills up on its own without any input or effort from the user. At first, I simply couldn’t believe this, so I decided to leave my character stationary for a few minutes and kept an eye on my ‘XP skill’ meter and to my surprise it did begin filling up. Since the meter fills up on its own, I’ve concluded that it isn’t worth grinding whenever the meter isn’t full, so I recommend players simply leave the game open at a safe area near some monsters and simply begin playing only when their ‘XP skill’ mater is filled up, as the amount of XP gained while using your skill meter is full is massive compared to the regular XP gain.
Eudemon Online’s most notable feature is without a doubt the game’s Pokémon like Eudemon raising system. A Eudemon is sort of like a Pokémon, in that they follow you around and help you out in combat. As they gain experience they evolve into more powerful Eudemons and learn new skills. The first Eudemon evolution takes place at level 20 and the second one at level. Players can carry up to 12 Eudemons at once and with existence of over 100+ unique Eudemons the possibilities are vast. Players can also combine their Eudemons to try and create stronger ones. The system itself is quite impressive, but I would have liked to see more total Eudemons and a tutorial that explained the system thoroughly, because as it stands, the game leaves too much for players to figure out on their own.
Final Verdict – Good
Even with the game’s obvious flaws, the game still has a large vibrant community and an innovative pet raising system. With its open PvP environment, Eudemons has a strong emphasis on PvP, so if PvP isn’t your cup of tea, try another game.
