What a gem of a MMO I missed out on when it released last Fall! LOL On a lark, I had hubby download the 20-day free trial and he was hooked from the beginning. One day into the trial, we both purchased the game and one month subscriptions.
The graphics are phenomenal, they are realistic and extremely well done. The character creation is beautiful. There are multiple starting zones depending on what your main aim is when you start, I started in South Burb the crafting starting zone. There is an extensive crafting system, and you aren’t limited to one or two crafting choices. You can raise your skill in any and all crafting choices from cooking to ballistics. There are quest rewards in South Burb that are designed for the crafter. Other starting zone have zones designed for melee or ranged characters or support characters.
There are no set character classes in the game, you can design your path and pick your faction choices to further enhance your skills and abilities. Luckily, faction choices aren’t determined in the early part of the game. You don’t level at lightening speed and not all quests can be completed alone.
My toon is only level six but it has been a truly enjoyable experience. Hubby and I are leveling together and thus are working around his schedule, so leveling may be slower than previous games but I’m enjoying playing with him so much.
