What is a naga you ask. Glad you did because, I, in my usual half arsed fashion, have the answer for you. Obviously the basis for the monster naga found in RPGs and MMOs alike is:
Nāga is the Sanskrit and Pāli word for a deity or class of entity or being, taking the form of a very great snake—specifically the King Cobra, found in Hinduism and Buddhism.-Wikipedia
Runes of Magic's nagas also seem to be water based and I suppose are casters and/or warriors as well given that RoM is the ghetto version of WoW. I never encountered a naga in RoM so this is purely speculation.
WoW even named a naga after me. Okay it is supposed to be a mermaiden but Blizzard does love to recycle their artwork. Oh and my name is spelled wrong. It is M E R E D I T H.
I would think DDO would have naga but I've not ever seen one nor can I find any reference to there being naga. Though I did stumble upon a very bad ass looking naga in Tera of all games. Online while researching. I wasn't actually playing Tera.
