    Even when they were giving away the free character boosts to level 90 or whatever, I still couldn't care about this game.

    The game itself is actually pretty decent, big world, you can fly from very early on, kinda neat character development, etc.  Not the best graphics, but the world itself is nice enough.  So the game play experience isn't all that bad, heck my wife and I played PWI for a little while.

    Trouble is, this game has been heavily p2w for some time now.  And even worse, my time with the game suggested to me that it's not only p2w, it's p2 enjoy.  The recovery time during mob-killing is so long that you almost have to invest in those cash shop healing potions, or find yourself at a disadvantage.  We left the game because all of the quests became "kill 70 of [x] mob" at around level 50, and we just didn't feel like spending that much money on it.

    It still has a decent number of players and all that, but it would be difficult to recommend PWI to a newcomer.  Sad, really, because the base experience is enjoyable enough.

    I completely agree with your assessment, Muppet.   I also found the game was unplayable without the potions.  They weren't a huge expense however, if you played casually.

     

    Also agree that the questing became kill 10 of X at a higher level.  

     

    But it was an enjoyable world and worth visiting for some low stress casual gaming.  Not a long term game but good for some fun at the time.

    Guess most haven't been on in like years. Potions at lower levels are rarely used now since they now offer daily charms to up to lv60.

    The mob count for quests is not nearly as high as it use to be, it's been cut back many times over the years.

    I will agree though, it is still very P2W, however if it played with casual game play in mind it's not very hard to reach lv100 in a few days if played right. The killer part is farming the gear.

    The community is quiet nice as well, though trolling is just mostly done for fun now. It's just that almost everyone knows everyone on the servers.
