A Thinking MMORPG?

asiaineasiaine Beverly HIlls, CAPosts: 1Member

What I would like in an MMORPG:

 

Battles that require some thinking/strategy, each time.  Including using 'wits' in the middle of the fight.  Even with the same fight that you've done a hundred times before.

 

Equipment/Weapons that are not strictly progressive but situational (the right tool for the right job).

 

Equipment/Weapon customization (think FFVII Swords with material to heavily customize what they can do).

 

Social Community (Fun/nice people to chat with while going out on adventures).

 

 

What I do not want in MMORPGs:

 

Forced PvP

Scary Zombies

 

My 'problem' with a lot of the MMORPGs out there now are they are too simple/straightforward, or just click-click-click-battle-won, or PvP.

 

 

Thank you.

    eh, I dunno if it would be your style but, have you tried dragon nest?

     

    It's not exactly like FF7 with it's gear but it's definitely action-combat based.

    Unfortunately it's almost entirely instance-based too though.

     

    can't win 'em all =/

     

    (gotta warn you though, there are zambies and spiders at some points in the game)

    DDO somewhat fits what you're looking for. There are many different weapon types that are good for different situations. I used to have one backpack filled with different weapon sets that i could swap to based on the type of creature i was fighting. Here is a list of different weapon enchants and their effects/purposes http://ddowiki.com/page/Weapon_enchantment_summary The crafting system also allows you to make weapons with the specific effects/enchants that you want.

    Spell casters have limited spell points/mana that they can use in a dungeon. So you have to be wise about your casting, otherwise you could find yourself out of spell points/mana before the next regen location. PVP is completely optional in the game.

    Gonna go ahead and reccomend Elder Scrolls Online when it comes out. It's got thinking components to it for sure.
