Blade & Soul has the PVP pedigree to stand at the top of the MMO heap, which is why the rather rote PVE stands out. You'll have to go through some soulless grinding before you get to the great PVP. If martial arts-laden PVP isn't your thing, there are better MMOs out there.
While there is ample incentive to spend money, especially since mailing items is limited to folks who have at least spent $5, you probably won’t feel too hampered as a free player. That is, except, for one key area – bag space. It’s a “convenience” feature, sure, but making every character so limited on bag space unless they buy the expensive expansions just reeks of money grab.
If you’re looking for an MMO that isn’t a generic high fantasy clone, Blade & Soul will be appealing. After a while, though, the romance fades and the grind sets in, and you realize that the good stuff is the PvP after level 45 and even then, there’s not that much to do. There are seven classes but every character slogs through the same story and the same quests and easy-kill monsters.
