Annoying top-down view

This game looks utterly cute and lovely and maybe I would have played it for a while.

But the forced top-down view is really annoying, it is like playing through a keyhole.

I was so disappointed that I deinstalled after one hour.

    you can zone in alto using your mouse wheel , but yes  the view is annoying , I wish it had a first person view or a better chase camera..

    And that changes the top down view, how?

    The view is annoying, but it reminds me of Diablo. A much brighter and happier version of Diablo which in turn takes some of the fun out of it. This game is fun, and after a bit, the camera angle annoyance goes away. But yes, the camera angle is extremely annoying.

    The top down view isnt really that bad once you play it for a bit. I was never bothered by it in the first place.

    I agree, the top down view is really annoying, but not as annoying as the boards having no real information, and no search feature if you are...

    I've spent the last 20 minutes looking for a build guide for explorers, still no luck.

    Have any of you played Ragnarok Online?  It uses the same top view.  However, in this you can change the view with your mouse wheel.  I don't know.  I kinda like the top view.  What other view would you suggest?  And if you have a suggestion, why not suggest it on their suggestion forum?

    Top down view allows you to be the viewer of your character in action. I think that's nice. I get used to it and it doesn't annoy me, any way i can always reorient the view by using the mouse.

    the view can be changed from top down , if youd plated it for more then 5 minutes youd know that.

    I have been playing this for almost a year and yes the view is annoying at first but it goes away and you can go into the game files and tweak the view some to show a little more of the land.  There are guides on how to do that in the official forums. Still love the game, it just gets very grindy after lvl 50
