A friend of mine and I were thinking about trying this game out. I played this game back during the korean beta, and wasn't too thrilled with it. It seemed like all I did was kill enemy after enemy after enemy and watch my experience sloooowwwlllyyy rise. Quests were too hard to do, or too hard to find. The game felt empty, the atmosphere was quiet, there was no music, it just felt real...blah. I enjoyed the combat, but got tired of grinding the same enemy over and over...I wanted to do quests. Grinds I dont mind...so long as I'm doing it for the sake of quests to gain experience or rewards. I'm not a big fan of grinding the same camp of mobs for hours on end to level. Is this how the game progresses?
Does this game give you any kind of direction? Will I log in and find myself saying what do I do next? Or can I go accept quests, go out and do them, finish that particular area of the world, and move on to another one with ease? Or will I have to constantly stop and ask for help on where to go next?
Do you level slowly in the game? Or is it a steady pace? Will I have to spend hours upon hours playing to progress? Or can I play this game casually? How is it in terms of soloing? Can I solo if I want effectively? Or duo? Or do I need a full party to do anything?
When does pvp really start getting good instead of murderers ganking newbs? When can I be strong enough to participate in big world pvp like attacking castles?
I know this is a big wall of text, but if anyone can help me with these questions, I would appreciate it. I really am considering playing this game.
