Like many others I have found Other MMO's combat mechanics/animations slow & boaring in comparison to GW2.
Im having trouble with many games that were my staple mmos for this reason. (WOW, Rift LOTR, DDO etc.)
One game that still gets me excited about combat/animations/PVP is in fact Aion.
Its traditional enough to get my fix there but fast enough to not seem ancient when after playing GW2.
Fast paced and in depth combat with some of the best animation's imo seems to complement GW2 well and both free of monthly fee's.
For example of the point im making, heres one of my fav Aion battles to watch.
Heres a PVP battle involving 2 Templar's ( The class i play.) One is an Offensive build, the other a defensive build and a fine example of AIon PVP/combat.
Also while Aion is incredably gear & lvl based while GW2 has an opposing system allowing players to PVP imediatly on a somewhat lvl playing ground, no grind required. Some times I enjoy both systems and one genraly makes me appreciate the other.
If anyone ellse has an MMO with good synergy to GW2, please post it here.
