Dream of Mirror Online

Dream of Mirror Online, also referred to as DOMO is a free Aeria Game. According to their Introduction, it is based on ancient Chinese mythology, “the world of Dream of Mirror Online exists as an alternate reality inside the ‘Kunlun Mirror’ which is a sacred artifact.”

Character creation on this game was quite nice. Races offered include: Humans, Shura, Sylph, and Sprites. Customizations to the character’s sex, hair, face and head, chest and body size were nice. It isn’t often we get to change how our characters look like that! The option to zoom in and rotate helped guide me on which options to choose. Characters also choose their zodiac signs which affect their gameplay too.

Sadly, characters don’t have a profession until they reach level 10. Players 10 and under are just “Commoners.” Once past level 10, you can train to be a Martial Artist, Wizard, Blademaster, Hunter, Thief, Doctor, Mercenary, Shaman, Fencer, Musician, Dancer and Merchant.

My adventure guided me to be a female Shura. I did some quests in the starter area, and eventually reached level 6 before I stopped playing. The game was just too cartoony for me. It actually quite reminded me of Maple Story. Another drawback for me was the movement controls. It just annoyed me too much.

Overall, I think the game is cute. It is great for kids. Looks like they have events. FREE. Easy enough to play and figure out, but just not enough stimulation for those over 12.

-.- there's actually adults playing in DOMO... and people even got their gf/bf onto DOMO and estabished a lovers relationship on there...

The fun don't really start until you go level with teams, get a job, find whole lot of player/pet buffs, powerful magic/physical damage, supportive and debuff skills etc etc plus you can mix and match skills from different jobs to suit you the best.

You haven't even tried riding a pet or flying yet.

I've jumped, swam, flown and rode on mounts in other games though. This one was just not for me.
