Perfect for mobile

I've played this for awhile now. I also read all the reviews where people are saying is boring or hard around level 9. Here's the deal, this game is awesome if played correctly I'm currently level 24, with my town about level 7 ( just a bit under ), I don't know if people are not building their towns up, but that actually expands the game, brings in new missions, upgrading shops gives better options to craft or buy with in game currency. Early on when things are easy upgrade your inventory slots and chest capacity with the free premium gems they give you ( I get a lot free fighting in the dungeons) I have over 700 now, never bought anything. Time your chest timers around your work day, open gold while you sleep, never run into waiting issues. As far as combat and complaining about dying, here's a tip get the healing dodge and upgrade it, choose your talents and perks wisely, craft health absorbing armor and jewelry, with the right loadout, and proper potion planning, no quest is too difficult, the challenging ones are harder because they're supposed to be, you'll have a wonderful feeling of accomplishment when they drop a free legendary chest on you.
I'm level 24, all eleven gear, rings and necklace, usually have 15-20 various chests to cycle through, over 700 premium gems saved up from free drops, haven't spent a dime of real life currency.
Play smart play often, this is an unbelievable free offering from the elder scrolls franchise!!!!

Mobile Skyrim, and free!

The tight, fluid, and precise nature of the game, tactical combat, and smooth and beautiful graphics alludes fondly to Bethesda’s masterpiece console game Skyrim, and being free and ad-less only adds to the perfection of Blades. Combat is quick and easy to learn, but is greatly rewarding to strategic and observant players. Enemies seem to have great intelligence and different monsters follow different patterns of attack which attentive players will learn to watch out for. I’ve been disconnected a couple of times, but this doesn’t delete your progress and is to be expected as the game is in Early Access. The overall story is quite good, and my only real gripe is with the voice acting, which is incomplete at the moment and somewhat uninteresting, but I have faith that this will improve with future updates. The content at present is deep and will keep you occupied for hours, and the Abyss, the game’s endless dungeon crawler mode supports this. I would love to see more content as of new, creative enemies and especially more areas, as currently there are only 5 or 6. A dark, snowy forest variant, perhaps? A battle atop the walls of a fortress? Other fleshed out towns of enemy bandits? In any case, the game seems to be being actively updated and is sure to get better and better. If you like RPGs, dungeon crawlers, roguelikes, or any such games, this is something you’re sure to love. Thanks for reading!

The game is entertaining and can easily be finished with f2p. P2P will obviously have a massive advantage, but this is almost completely mitigated late game. The game becomes repetitive and a grind after level 35ish, which is fine for me and many other players, but may not be your ideal game. As a higher level it will take hours of gameplay for a single level with the game only currently having a few different maps and job types; maybe 40 different jobs in total. The mission difficulty is currently far to easy as once you can make the top gear you can stand still against the hardest enemies in a job for a full minute before they will kill you; add in abilities that heal/mitigate damage and they can't harm you. The developers are actively updating, but are sadly making the game easier and easier. Overall I am happy giving it a 5 star since it has entertained me and will continue to entertain me for many hours. I would suggest to the developers to make the game harder, and perhaps add in kill stats to know how many kills you have and damage you have done. Perhaps in in-game dossier to see enemy stats. My biggest issue is that the level-up rewards are completely unbalanced and worthless. 300,000 experience for a level and 5 grand soul gems was rather disappointing and should either be converted to far higher amounts or simply give us gems.
