MMORPGs combine the best elements of the game-playing world: role-playing, the online charade of players, and the gameplay/story itself. Whether it be a simple yet enchanting 2D, side-scrolling MMORPGs or a completely developed, customizable, high-end graphics game, one feature that locks it in gamers’ hearts is the ever-expanding universe with features and plots that grab your attention and keep you coming back. 

MMORPGs give you complete control over appearance, race, and sex to their profession and skills. You are much more involved in building the character that you strongly identify with and want to see win. With character progression, you level up your character by completing a quest, fighting a villain, or simply collecting rewards and improving strength, skills, or other unique attributes. 

The game upgrades keep you busy and occupied, and the open world is always there to welcome you with challenges, quests, and rewards. 

Here is the list of 7 MMORPGs for beginners and their level up

2d, side-scrolling MMORPGs: 


1. Maplestory: Maplestory is the world where you complete quests and fight monsters. It is a retro feat that is reminiscent but better as you can play with multiple players and mold your own characters. One of the most popular MMORPGs, the play is by no means a bore: NEXON has designed 40 unique classes of warriors, magicians, pirates, assassins, mages and samurais, and even legendary heroes.

Each of the classes has unique characteristics that keep it interesting, and the continuous upgrades expand the ever-growing open world. Go for jump quests or mob killing quests or fight monsters and bosses. Team up to tackle the task of dungeons and raids. If you get stuck, you always have the Maplestory training guide to help you up. 

2. Dungeon fighter online: with a minor storyline that appears at the beginning and the end of the quests, the game is enjoyable with and without the dialog boxes. Your characters level up, and that’s where the fun begins; you can connect with others and share the experience of the classic beat ’em up action combined with the MMORPG platform online.

You can up your base class, equip basic skills, earn gear, money, and good stuff by leveling up at each stage. Now the game says dungeon, but the gameplay takes you through the lands of mystical kingdom Arad and into the dungeons outside the town space.

3. La tale: similar to Maplestory, but with different graphics, la tale offers Three types of Guilds: Order, Chaos, and Neutral and Four starting classes: Warrior, Explorer, Wizard, and Knight. It allows more free work; for example, Players can open personal shops; each class can choose between two possible advanced classes at level 80 and many fashion items. Another additional aspect of a tale is that it provides an interesting arena-based PvP system.
