Shaiya is a fantasy MMORPG set in the world of conflict between the forces of Light and Darkness. Player characters belong to one of the two major factions: the Alliance of Light and Union of Fury factions.
Players in Shaiya choose between four races: Human, Elf, Vail, and Nordein. Every race has a slight bonus and advantage during character creation. For instance, a Human has 4 LUC, while the Vail race gets 2 INT and WIS. Nordein gains 2 STR and 2 REC, while the Elf has 4 DEX.
Races are also limited to the available classes they can choose. Humans gain access to the Defender, Fighter, and Priest classes. Elves have the Archer, Mage, and Ranger classes to choose from. The Vail can choose the Assassin, Oracle, and Pagan classes. Finally, the Nordein can choose the Guardian, Hunter, and Warrior classes.
Shaiya players can choose different difficulty modes. Higher difficulties can increase the loot and experience rewards. There are 15 dungeons and raids to participate in, including raid bosses. Aside from these adventuring options, Shaiya has epic PvP modes, including duels, arenas, and guild-vs.-guild battles. The biggest of these are the 1500-man realm vs. realm combat.
