After over two years of playing Perfect World, and being upset with them for almost half that time, I've decided its time to move on. Perfect World has gotten completely out of control with the power leveling, and the "cater-to-only-the-rich" type updates that offer end of game gear to people willing to pay thousands of dollars to get it in an instant. All the great instances are broken now by the fact that there are not enough people participating in them for PvE's to have a fair chance to play them.
The final blow for me was the agreement to make a PvP zone within a PvE server making lowbies susceptible to being PKed while in non-PK mode. The experience of being PKed for them is both traumatic and unnecessary since they chose a PvE server to avoid exactly that kind of shock. I simply have little faith in the developer's respect for PvE players.
I am looking for a comparable fantasy-type game similar to Perfect World that has not gone over the deep-end with catshoppers and is respectful of PvE players who want to progress through grinding and farming with other players and have enough of a separation from PKers to not be attacked unless they permit it.
The aspects i liked about Perfect World was definitely the visual graphics, the character customizations (and how they are so realistic and versatile), the option for keyboard and mouse clicking, the ability to manufacture my own gear and weapons, and the presence of end-of-game gear that were only for the ones who ventured into lofty goals. The questing system (both linear storyline and daily quests) was balanced enough that you didnt have to grind your way to the next level.
Me and a few other friends are planning to quit Perfect World for the reasons above and have been researching for the last two days. I would love some suggestions from anyone playing a game that might suit us.
(Oh, and a marriage system is definitely a plus... I can't play without my ingame hubby!)
