World of Warcraft managed to successfully navigate through the uncanny valley by choosing to make their characters look deliberately cartoony. Nexon's Dragon Nest takes this idea to its logical extent. The player-characters in this free-to-play MMO all teeter on the edge of adorable, while the enemies have some of the coolest skins ever seen in an RPG.

This game is packed with kinetic action. Nexon billed it as more of an FPS than an MMO. You are constantly moving, strafing, jumping to get into the right position to do the most damage. There is no standing still and auto-attacking in this game. You'll need to be engaged and active if you want to avoid becoming a side-walk stain.

As with all of Nexon's offerings, this game is free-to-play. Nexon supports themselves off of microtransactions for mostly cosmetic items. Some functional gear will be purchaseable with real money, but the goal is to “keep it even”. Nexon knows which side their bread is buttered on.
