Long time MMO player here. Started with MUDs in the early days, then UO, etc. I play just about every mainstream MMO that comes out hoping to find one that sucks me in. Few have done it. So now, here I am again looking for a new game. I getting interested in the f2p games as they are.. well free. I don't have to make any type of immediate commitment to them for my hard earned dollars. The latest game I've played (along with my wife) was Eden Eternal. I liked the game. Was a bit of a grind and the cash shop was slightly outreagous with their pricing on some items. What I didn't like, there was no crafting. I buy an item and give it to an NPC to craft it for you. I also really liked the class system. Reminded me a little of FF11 with being able to change classes and all while only having to maintain one character. So basically here is my list of things I'd be interested in.
Class changes, dual classing, or something along the lines so I don't end up with 20 alts trying to find the perfect class for me, eventually bored doing the same content over and over and quitting. Isn't a requirement but would be great.
Easily casual. I don't have a lot of time on my hands with work and the family coming first. I'd like something that is casual, easy to pick up and possibly level/gain skills fairly quickly.
Grind, but not to much. If we look at all our old school games there was pretty much nothing but grinding. UO, EQ, DAoC, etc but it was also fun. Eden Eternal turned out to be nothing but clicking an emeny as soon as one died and spamming one of your few spells over and over. That, was a little to much.
Something to do besides leveling/grinding/questing. I can understand if quests are generally exciting they will keep you occupied. Which leads me to my next requirement, and it's a biggy.
Crafting! I love to craft. I don't mind spending a few hours mining, chopping trees, picking flowers, etc. It has to have real crafting.
Now I actually enjoyed the graphical style of Eden Eternal. I've never really played a anime style MMO before so it was a huge change from Conan, LotRO, FF11/14, WoW, Matrix Online, EQ2, Rift, DDO, and the many others that I've played through out the years but anime isn't a requirement.
I know there are plenty of foreign MMO's out there. I've tried a few of them EE, Fiesta, and Dragon Nest to name a few. I've been looking through the list of them and some seem interesting. I just really don't want to spend another 20 minutes to a few hours downloading and patching a game to decide after an hour that I don't like it. So any recommendations would be great. Please give a reason behind you are recommending the game. What did you like about it.. what didn't you like about it. The more information the better. Thanks everyone!! Happy MMO'ing!!!
