A Good Fast-Paced Action-RPG.

Hi there friends. First of all, sorry for my english (im argentinian)... Now, im a huge fan of RPGs, im almost 30 years old, so ive played a lot since the origins of the genre (including master pieces like FF7-12, Diablo,Baldurs-Dragon Age, etc.) and i been loving games on the iphone like Chaos Rings, Eternal Legacy, CrimsonHearts,Zenonia,etc.(and ive tried a lot more) but now that ive played almost all of them (some ive finsh them others got bored :P) im looking for some FAST PACED one, most likely Crimsonhearts and Diablo3 (so you guys can get a hint of what im looking foward to) in terms of action-rpg. Ive played the recently Heroes Call, but its so slow paced that it bored me as soon as a played it, and its freemium (wtf) so, ill pass.. really. I dont like to play a monthly fee like in Order&Chaos or any other freemium games, i prefer a 1 payment only and then play (off or online, that does not matter).

Im anxious for Inf.Blade Dungeons, but i have iphone, and i think its coming for ipad if im not mistaken ...

Well, i hope that u guys understand my poor english LoL and can recommend me some good game, im open to suggestions.

thanx for your time guys! cya

If you are familiar with the classics, then you are probably already aware, but there is a port of The Secret of Mana on the AppStore. Also definitely give Mage Gauntlet a try (though it's RPG elements are thin and it's more of a pure action game dressed like an action RPG).

Pocket RPG is a bit different with twin stick style controls, but I find that to be one of the best action based RPGs (although pretty light on the RPG side of things).

First - infinity blade dungeons is to be released on iPhone / iPod, I believe. Although it may see release on iPad earlier.

Second - yes, secret of mana. I know some would say it's just nostalgia, this is as good as action RPGs get though. On ios or any other platforms. This and Zelda are two of the benchmark classics of the genre.

Third - if you like Diablo, I'd recommend Solomon's keep very strongly. It seems from your post that you get bored with constant grinding in games ( me too ). Solomon's keep, pocket rpg, and Mage gauntlet ate lite on grinding / excessive story elements.

I found Solomon's keep to be very grind heavy. And the lotto system regarding upgrades was a turn off 4 me.
