LF fantasy mmo or RPG with freedom like EVE...

Are there any fantasy mmo's or rpg where you can customize your character build / skills like Eve?

I remember the original Star Wars used to have it - any other game doing it?

Thanks!

    Several in the KS pipeline, and perhaps New World on the AAA front, but none are on the near horizon.

    On hiatus from EVE Online since Dec 2016 - Screw off-grid PVE boosting changes

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

    EVE and SWG have nothing in common, however if you want just character customization, I guess there are quite a few out there, PoE comes to my mind...

    Crowfall is going to be very similar in terms of progression.  Not released yet but you could buy early access if you're really hard-up for it.

    Darkfall Rise of Agon... or Darkfall New Dawn.. best game out there right now! In beta now, but will be released soon. I recommend playing it now though to get familiar and ready for launch!!

    NEWS FLASH! A bank was robbed the other day and a man opened fire on the customers being held hostage. One customer zig-zag sprinted until he found cover. When questioned later he explained that he was a hardcore Darkfall Online player and knew just what to do.

    Watch me play Darkfall and sometimes PVP in other MMORPGs on Twitch.

    Darkfall has launched!!! MAY 5th!! Join before its too late!

    1. I don't understand the differences between the 2 games...

    And I have tried Darkfall's previous games - hated them.

    2. How are these better?

    Thanks!

    The closest thing I'd suggest to EVE would be Survival titles, although character building is extremely different, you have the freedom to do what you want, with the same type of open environment ripe for clan to clan war/politics. Life is Feudal would be the closest to that that I've played. (basing that off the community)

    I tried Eve and couldn't stand it. I don't get what the draw is at all.

    Not interested in a Fantasy based game that is like that - too many griefers.

    Depends on when you played the other games... lots of changes really but still Darkfall when it comes down to it.

    If you HATED them than may not be your cup of tea.

    I am beta testing both games right now and they both have come a long way, especially if you haven't played since 2009 or whatever. In comparison, the original game was broken when it was released.

    Whenever a new patch comes for each game, many changes come with it... quite a few new additions that make the gameplay much better. The biggest improvement so far is the UI and looting. They have done some simply fixes for some huge serious issues that I previously had with the game... like the time it took to loot and sort things in the bank, etc. The new way of leveling up is pretty cool too. Every patch has quite a bit of new stuff every time. It will be fun to see how this plays out.

    New Dawn is more focused on localized banking than Rise of Agon.. and will probably take more time to develop.... but seems to be much more hardcore because there is no bindstone recall either, etc. So long as the game had a decent population, it would work, but seems Rise of Agon has a bigger chance of retaining population but that is just a hunch.

    NEWS FLASH! A bank was robbed the other day and a man opened fire on the customers being held hostage. One customer zig-zag sprinted until he found cover. When questioned later he explained that he was a hardcore Darkfall Online player and knew just what to do.

    Legends of Aria ( previously known as Shards )

    i think it is probably one of the most exciting mmo to come, and the best part is, they are now a full MMORPG where thousands or million player can play together rather than small multiple server that only fits 64-128 players.

    LoA will have a complete freedom, like really freedom freedom, you almost craft everything, open world housing, taming, spell crafting etc. you can actually find a skill inside a dungeon from a Tome, you can even change how the world looks, think of this as the modern UO, but maybe better mechanics, graphics and features.

    it might come out this year because it's early access soon on Steam ( though im not sure when, it could be Q2, Q3 likely )

    i played this game a few times in the past, but since the are so many players scattered all over the shards, it's hard to play group or find friends, but with the full MMORPG server, this game will be super fun. and i hope so myself because i really would like to love this game, i am trying to move away from all AAA mmo, it always dissapoint me.
