After having subscribed to Rift for a long period, I have decided to unsub and start playing it casually instead, now that it's F2P. I still like Rift a lot, but feel like I have room for a second MMO, which could eventually become a replacement MMO. I'm not quite up to speed with the latest MMOs, so instead of researching every single one of them (it's a jungle out there!), I thought I'd might as well ask the awesome community here for suggestions.
What I'm looking for is this:
I have already tried:
SWTOR: An okay game, but falls flat (in my opinion) in some areas, most notably F2P model, world design and crafting.
Everquest 2: This is definitely one of the games I consider. The world is pretty good, so is the crafting. The big downside for me is the look of the game. It's hard to pinpoint exactly, but I never liked the graphics that much. I heard it has PvP battlegrounds now, are they any good? Could you level up through PvP if you wanted to?
LOTRO: Also under consideration. Only major downside is the lack of a solid PvP system, rest seems okay.
WoW: A friend convinced me to give it a shot, but I just can't get into it. I hate the art style (too much "color explosion" for my taste), but have to admit that it has a lot to offer, so I still consider it. As far as I can tell though, this game has little endgame content for the solo player and no public quests or dynamic events?
Guild Wars 2: I bought it at launch, but lost interest about a month after I hit 80 and had 100% world completion and completed most jumping puzzles. Game's good in many ways, but it had little staying power for me. It lacked a carrot to chase I guess.
So, any suggestions? Feel free to answer/comment on the questions in green as well, and sorry in advance for any bad english ;-)
