After over five years of World of Warcraft I was somehow keylogged. I think it was at work logging onto forums because I found nothing at my home computer. I lost everything. Its in the process of being restored, but after two days its gotten me to thinking. Maybe its time for a fresh start in a new game. Looking for some opinions to fit my description.
Graphics - I'm running a Q6600, 8800GTS, 4 gB RAM, dual monitors, and Win 7. I'd like to be able to use it. I find graphics important, but I'd take gameplay over graphics.
Gameplay - I'd like to have a sense of individuality. Going into town and everyone wearing identical items irks me. Classes is another area I like to see differences among players. For five years I've seen 80 frost mage, 80 prot warrior, 80 holy priest, 80 resto shaman etc with identical builds and gear. A game that didn't have a "cookie cutter build" would be ideal.
PvP - Doesn't really interest me. If it had some, sure. Not looking for a game that was based on PvP
PvE - I enjoy PvE. Instanced is fine. Or real world like Lineage ][ is fine.
Solo Play - I'd enjoy the ability to go off on my own for a couple weeks. Before I was hacked I was on a raid schedule and was committed to a guild. I'l like the freedom of roaming off on my own and not be "tied down". very important aspect for me. I have a busy life and scheduling my time around a game is starting to grind on me.
Crafting and Economy - This is what I'm looking for. A strong economy and a crafting system that involves more than collect x of y hit "make", then seeing 100s of the same items on the auctions or vendors. Lineage ][ had a neat but tedious crafting system and I rather enjoyed it. I'm a finance director for my town and I like money. And I like making money. I'm also good at it. A good crafting system is probably the most important aspect of the game for me.
Previous Games - As you have read, I have been playing World of Warcraft since beta in 2004. Prior to that I played Lineage ][ on a shared account for a little over two years. I also played EVE which was alright but right click, orbit, F1 got kind of boring. Been looking at Darkfall lately and if there is any input you may have from there would be great. Or a game with a trial that I could play for a week or so I'd try out as well.
I typed this out behind an Excel Spreadsheet at 90% transparency so any spelling errors I apologize. Sorry for the long post. Thanks for reading.
