Holy Beast Online is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), developed by Easyfun Entertainment of Taiwan. It began beta phase on the 21st of May in the USA.

Feature[edit]

The main gameplay feature is the ability of player characters to switch back and forth from an animal form into a human form at will. Different forms, Clans and Jobs have different abilities.

When creating a character in Holy Beast Online the player can choose one of six animals. The effect of each animal is similar to choosing a race in other MMORPG games. In addition, the player can choose the gender, hair style, hair color and one of two different colors of the chosen animal.

The player starts off as a "Young Beast" at level 1. When the player reaches level 3 and do a specific quest- The Trial of Passage- the player will become an "Adult Beast" and be able to switch between human and beast form at will. Once a player reaches level 5, a class can be chosen from what is available to that players chosen animal/Clan. As the player progresses through the levels certain levels show a change in the player's beast (and possibly human) form(s).

The player can form a group, in which everyone apart of the group will receive experience points if one member defeats a monster. The player can also make a pack, which allows everyone who is apart to complete in various "pack quests". Or, the player can fight alone or with a pet.

The USA Server was terminated on the 31st of July 2012.
