New player, wanting to ask some questions

Hello everyone, nice to meet you. First time playing Vindictus after I saw it over steam and decided to give it a try, but I'd like to ask around before I decide to commit into the game. I've played for a few hours, but I've only tried 2 classes so far. Gameplay's kinda fun.

Well, first question would be what kind of game is this? Can I casually play 1-2 hours a day and still enjoy the content or is it one of those "grind all day, everyday 24/7 or you'll never catch up" game? If it's the latter then it would be a shame, but it won't be the deal-breaker because, well, it's kinda expected from a F2P title I guess.

Next question, is the ingame community usually so quiet or is it just because I'm still in "newbie-town"? Truth be told, it's a bit difficult to find information about this game and how classes work, most I found were from 2016, be it written guides/reddit/youtube videos. The tutorial helped a bit but it's not 100% clear. I never knew I could pick up dead bodies and use them to whack the other enemies until just now, for example. I did read some of the comprehensive guides listed in the forums, but I won't say no for more information.

Another question would be what class would you recommend for first timers? So far I've played Fiona up to level 30-ish, and a Hurk still stuck in level 17. I find their playstyle fun so far, but I'm always open to suggestions!

A bit of a small question, but what are those red crystal things that burst out of a boss' body when they're defeated? I have no idea what they're for.

Anyways that's all for now I guess, sorry for the wall of text and thanks in advance!
