The server seems for me pretty good. Its true that you only have 2x Exp but you also get a lot of exp scrolls. I recently had +200% and also +100% use them at night and you get a **** ton of exp.
Also as a starter you get a +9 weapon for your class and a t6 horse. But the costumes are kinda expensive. 5 € for a normal one and 11 € for a awakening costume.
The game looks until now pretty bugfree (i am at the moment level 29) and i think every awakening is released.
If you want to start playing you can use my referal link:

If you want you can add me ingame: Astarte.
