Vanguard Saga of Heroes is a Free to Play, fantasy Role Playing MMO Game set in the vast world of Telon, an ancient world of magic.
"Vanguard: Saga of Heroes is a fantasy, massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) set in the vast world of Telon, an ancient world of magic, intrigue and adventure. Facing the challenges of a war torn world, the diverse people here struggle to rebuild their once great civilizations. A fragile alliance has been struck, and with the lands set upon by invading forces, the races must band together to survive. Telon is in desperate need of heroes.
Combat lies at the heart of Vanguard adventuring and separates the heroes from the tombstones. Combat is a no holds bar match to the death (ok you can run away too but where's the fun in that?) which ends with either victory resulting in experience and loot or your death and recovery of your tombstone. Adventurers approach combat with a large variety of spells and abilities at their disposal that help give them a tactical advantage against their enemies. Smart adventurers will adapt the abilities they use to fit the current enemy they are fighting based on the strengths and weaknesses. Some of the denizens of Telon are too powerful for a single adventurer to fight on their own so it is often necessary to group up with other adventurers in order to bring down harder enemies because they have better loot. For many of the more difficult targets adventurers will have to take certain specialized roles in order to effectively fight against the strongest bad guys. Some classes are capable of fulfilling multiple roles leaving it to the player to choose how best to help their group."
