Pathfinder Online is a hybrid sandbox/theme park-style MMO where characters explore, develop, find adventure and dominate a wilderness frontier in a land of sword and sorcery. Live the adventure and excitement of one of the most successful tabletop role-playing games of all time! The Pathfinder world is high fantasy in the tradition of epics like The Lord of the Rings, Conan, the Wheel of Time and Game of Thrones.
Pathfinder Online Key Features
Real-time Skills – Characters gain skills through a process of real-time XP accumulation. Your character will gain XP regardless of how much you play or what you do while you play. So there’s no difference in XP accumulation between the casual player who logs in for a few hours on the weekend, and the hardcore grinder who plays every spare minute of every day.
Roles – The characters in Pathfinder Online do many things that the adventuring heroes of the tabletop game rarely if ever do. The online characters harvest resources, craft many kinds of items, transport goods from place to place, work as guards, spies, diplomats and soldiers, become bandits and generals and spymasters.
Unique harvesting system – Pathfinder Online has a traditional system and a unique system. The other kind of harvesting requires the characters to construct an “Outpost”. They’ll come in all kinds and levels of complexity. Outposts are linked to resource “nodes” that produce a steady stream of some kinds of resources needed in bulk – like timber or ore.
Crafting – With the exception of some beginner gear and some consumables and vanity items from the cash shop, every item in the game will be crafted by player characters.
Kingdoms – The largest social structure will be the Kingdom – a player-run nation consisting of two or more Settlements. Creating Kingdoms will unlock the most exotic and powerful structures, and those structures in turn will enable characters to learn and use the most specialized and unique character skill and abilities and to craft the most unusual items.
