If anyone remembers Asheron's Call or even The Realm, I'm looking for a game with similar character creation.
In Asheron's call there weren't any classes but instead you specialized in any skill you wanted and used the experience you gained to increase those skills. They cost less depending on which ones you specialized in. Basically, you created your class exactly how you wanted instead of being in a very limited, pre-determined class.
As for The Realm, you chose a class, but you also chose to spend intial points in different stats. These stats later affected chances of successfully crafting things.
I'd also prefer minimal questing. I found it exciting to group up with people and run into a non-instanced dungeon to grind on mobs.
I'd also really prefer a sandbox. Asheron's Call world was amazing because it had limited instant-teleporting and you had to actually run places and discover things.
I've tried TSW, GW2, WoW, and a slew of other F2Ps that didn't pan out. None of them have had the open character creation that I'm looking for.
Any ideas on games out now or upcoming games that meet this criteria?
