NosTale Overview

NosTale is a free-to-play anime-styled fantasy MMORPG that features 3D graphics in an isometric perspective, reminiscent of games such as Ragnarok Online and Secret of the Solstice. Create a character level up to 20 to choose your first class from Archer, Swordsman, and Mage, then unlock specialist cards to unleash the powers of stronger classes. Specialist classes give you new skills, weapons, and equipment on top of your main class, allowing you to specialize for challenging battles. Explore a large game world and liberate the forest from the evil monsters that arrived with the appearance of mysterious crystals. Enter the crystal worlds for timed challenge missions with awesome completion rewards, complete quests given by the game's NPCs, and team up with friends to take on challenging raids and events. Capture pets and summon them to your side in battle, storing unused pets in Miniland which acts as your home base.

NosTale Key Features:

  • Branching Class System – begin the game as an Adventurer and branch out at level 15 to multiple classes that can gain even more unique skills with the use of specialist cards.
  • Variety of Pets to Capture – capture and recruit multiple pets and NosMates to help in combat and to populate your Miniland, the player's personal home space.
  • PvP Arenas – partake in open world public PvP, or enter closed PvP matches in special areas for awesome rewards.
  • Dungeons and Raids – enter time-space stones for challenging, repeatable timed missions, fight in massive server-wide events, and take on difficult raid bosses with the help of your friends.
  • Join a Family – group up with likeminded players to join a family, the game's equivalent of guilds, and take on the game's many challenges under one family name.
