Tales of Toast is an awesome multiplayer MMORPG that focuses on the old-school style of online RPGs.
Specifically, it has a very easy to play and intuitive interface with open world PvP and tactical-based combat. There’s also a focus on bringing back the social aspect of classic MMO legends like MapleStory and Ragnarok that had raging communities and contributed to what made them awesome.
Tales of Toast plays like your standard MMO but it has mechanical tweaks to make the game feel very different compared to modern MMOs. You can freely travel around the world and do the basics like quests, dungeons, etc. But what makes this game special is how these specific core components of any RPG is done.
For example, the dungeons in this game are procedurally generated with both world dungeons that all players on the same realm can partake in as well as instance-based dungeons. They also level scale to the players active inside and they’re randomly-generated so it’ll never be the same route twice. It’s always a fresh dungeon!
Another thing Tales of Toast does differently is the whole class system. You don’t choose classes in this game, but rather, you decide exactly what type of character you want. Hybrid mages, rangers, melee warriors, or whatever else you can dream of. You get to procedurally build your character to fulfill its role that you want rather play a locked class on a set path of skill points.
The game also has an in-depth trading system that’s based on trade skills like woodcutting, botany, fishing, blacksmithing, carpentry, leatherworking, mining, cooking, and alchemy. It’s similar to World of Warcraft and each trade has its own perks. This is useful for crafting the best items in the game or producing pots to sell in the marketplace. It’s completely up to you.
As with any good RPG, it has an awesome quest system that focuses on quality over quantity. The game still has a ton of quests, but they’re more interactive rather than just plain kill quests or destination quests. Instead, you’ll find epic quest chains that unlock special features and locations for your character to explore!
The game takes place in a world called Astaria complete with towns, capitals, fields, forests, summer/winter areas, deserts, volcanoes, mines, and of course, dungeons. There are even a day/night cycle and a complete weather system.
Tales of Toast isn’t a pay-to-win game, so they do it right like other legendary MMORPGs following the same formula (Path of Exile). You can buy cosmetic items, but nothing that’ll give you an advantage over free players.
The game features cartoonish graphics that look like WoW with an HD mod pack.
