There is a soul system that allows players absorb souls from monsters. Players can interact with others in many ways, such as through chatting, trading.

Players can also band in a guild to battle with other guilds.
Lord Tai He and his apprentices rid the world of Demons, but Tai He had used forbidden magic that corrupted his souls. So he had to go to the western lands, to find the sacred herb to cleanse them. The player is Tai He for a short time, learning the basics in Batu Caves. After defeating a clone, Tai He eats the herb, dies and is reborn as your character.
Peasant: All characters begin the game as Peasants. This is when players are given their first skills such as run, high jump, meditate and palm force, which carry over to their next class. Once the player has reached level ten, a job ascension will become available. The player can then choose to either become a "Warrior, "Assassin", or "Magician/Taoist" from their respective job NPCs.
Warrior: The Warrior class is the main melee class of Ghost Online. The class offers a high amount of defense and offense. They do not have many ranged attacks, so they are forced to approach their target head-on in order to fight. Warriors can battle with a sword, a basic, melee weapon with high attack power, or a saber, another melee weapon with even greater attack power than its counterpart. Sword-type skills are more hit- and target-amount oriented, Saber-type focus on utilizing the Saber's status as the physically strongest weapon, and focusing the damage on fewer monsters, contrary to the sword's. The warrior npc can be currently found at Sentosa Plains 2.
Assassin: The Assassin class is the most agile and stealthiest class, opting to outmaneuver their opponents rather than attack bluntly. Players can choose to wield a claw, a fast melee weapon, or a glove, a ranged weapon using throwing stars. Different varieties of throwing stars (with different bonuses to player attack (ATK) power) are bought at stores, and are used up as glove-users fight with them. Assassins serve as both a ranged and a melee class, something the other two classes lack. Claw assassins seem to be more single-target oriented, having only one mob-attacking skill (gained at level 18), where glove assassins' skills are highly capable of taking on multiple targets. This class becomes very powerful after level 75 and they do extremely high damage due to having maxed mastery. The assassin NPC can be found at Sentosa Plains 6.
Magician/Taoist: The Magician class is the magic user of Ghost Online, focusing on ranged, magical attacks to fight. A Magician may use a fan, the weapon with the higher magic attack, or a staff, the weapon with the higher physical attack. Fan users usually start out with fire-based magics, and staff users use ice-based ones. Fan magic gets stronger than staff magic as the player levels, but the staff's ice-based magic has the advantage of having a random freeze probability on monsters. Magician also serve as a slightly more defense-capable class due to their ability to blind monsters, teleport from danger, and raise the defense stat.The magician NPC can be found at Klang Valley 3.
'Goliath""': The Goliath class is a melee class of Ghost Online but uses Axes and Wheels.
The main source of Gold (in-game currency) and experience points (needed to level up) are the monsters in the game. They are found in pretty much every field outside of the cities and towns, and portals leading to maps with monsters (usually from town) are colored red.
So far, there are three classifications of monsters, based on their attack capabilities. They are Touch Damage (player receives damage upon contact), Attacking (monster has an attack skill, usually doing less damage than touch damage), and Ranged (monster has a projectile attack skill). As usual, Touch Damage can be received from any brown monster. Although monsters may have good attacks, most do not attack, but their aggression depends on the monster, with higher leveled monsters being less aggressive than lower leveled ones.
Monsters also vary in mobility. There are three types of mobility for monsters, which are Walking, Stationary, and Flying. Walking monsters walk or run around on the ground in varying speeds, and are highly common. Stationary monsters do not move, so they usually have some sort of ranged attack in order to fight, along with their touch damage. The last type is flying monsters, who often occupy the higher level areas along with other monsters, and are usually harder for melee classes to attack and fight.
The strongest monster currently in the Malaysian GO is Snake Lord lvl 90.
All the bosses in GO are all currently animal/human hybrids of the 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac. All Boss monsters carry some form of weapon with which they attack, and all are flying monsters. The first boss is the Pig Boss and is level 30(can be found at orchard road ). Followed by the Dog (can be found at chow kit ) and then the Rooster (can be found at ayer hitam plains ) Continuing onwards until the snake. Animals that have not been used yet include the Dragon, the Horse and the Rabbit.
