Action RPGs

I'm looking for some fun action RPGs. I've played the new DHs and EW series, but they are filled with IAP and it takes away from the game. Does anyone know of some that are fun while being at least balanced IAP wise?

Premium, Bastion is my top recommendation following what you've played. Consider Mage Gauntlet too. Reaper: Tale of a Pale Swordsman is free to try out till level 20 and has a cheap premium unlock.
Echo Prime
Slayin

If you're after only free stuff, then try Bloodmasque.
Sol:Stone of Life
Asterogue (this is deceptively awesome and totally free)
Deep Dungeons of Doom
Battleloot Adventure
Crimsonheart
Epichearts
Quadropus Rampage
Towelfight 2

Most of these are dungeon crawlers ? I have a dungeon crawler obsession. I guess something like iesabel.

If you're not on iPhone 5 / wider screens, you could try 2v of my favorites ever:

- Demon Hunter - The Return of The Wings: I love this one, still play it on my old device <3
- ILLUSIA: FastFastFast, this one rocks!

I like Anodyne too. A different kind of game, "similar" to Mirai Nikki [but I hated the controls, so I never finished them]

And you could try some classics like Secret of Mana and Chronotrigger.

Also, you can always check undeadcow's rpg list:

Bastion most definitely.
Spiral:Ep.1 is similar to Bastion, in that it is different.
No idea if things like Epoch or Infinity Blade series fit your bill.
Iesabel, but I cannot really recommend it, too buggy.
