I am looking for a new (or perhaps even old? : P ) MMORPG.
I am looking for a ''Fantasy'' MMORPG that is PVE focused.
By fantasy; I mean swords, armor, mages, bows etcatera.
Nowadays, such fantasy MMO's are dime a dozen, I know...
But im looking for something in particular.
I am looking for a ''serious'' fantasy MMORPG.
An mmorpg where the player plays the role of a human (or whatnot)
Sort of like Dragon Age Origins...
(Like there is a war going on between humans and something else;
let us say the Undead hordes or Orcs or something).
As in: *EVEN IF* this is fantasy;
-there are no flying pigs.
-there are no toy-looking police car mounts that can be bought
at the cash shop.
-no tiny little super-sexy clad little girls wielding swords/guns
5 times their size.
-no ninjas that can fart dragons.
Fantasy, yeah... but NOT super-crazy and mega-exaggerated fantasy.
When I think of such a game, the first thing that comes to my mind is;
WARHAMMER ONLINE. Sure, there were some vehicles in the lore, and thus
a tiny element of steampunk etc, BUT GENERALLY THE GAME HAD A VERY SERIOUS
TONE to me, especially when fighting as a soldier of the Empire.
Another game that comes to mind is LOTRO (still active).
But right now, im looking for something else besides LOTRO (but the game is
good IMO. I will return to it sooner or later).
Finally, ESO is not bad at all in my humble opinion.
But for the moment, im looking for that ''desperate survival against
darkness'' vibe that ESO doesn't give (BUT MYABE ITS LIKE THAT JUST IN THE
BEGINNING BUT THAN IT CHANGES, I dunno.. ).
PS! I am aware that what I say might be a somewhat contradictory.
Like; ''Serious Fantasy''. In reality, most things are not black or white,
but are made up of shades of gray. So a ''fight against darkness (against
evil unded or dastardly orcs etc) aint too much realistic either (as it
than depicts us humans as ''automatically good'' ),
BUT IF YOU THINK ABOUT THE ABOVE MENTIONED EXAMPLES such as Dragon Age Origins
and Warhammer Online, I think you will get a basic idea about what im looking for.
Sorry for the long-winded post and thank you for any answers regarding the question.
