    Amazing you made it this long - the end game grind in BDO is real. I play BDO casually on Korean servers, but yeah no way would I make it my primary game.

    ArcheAge used to be ridiculous in end game gear grind as well, they changed it to where you can skip 80% of end game gear grinding by being able to craft higher tiers without the prerequisites.

    This helped the average players narrow the gap to that 1% elite so the gear disparity is not ridiculous anymore.

    I'd personally recommend ArcheAge 3.0 fresh start servers (when they launch on Dec 10th) as those will require new accounts and will have all fast progress items from cash shop removed.

    Probably not very similar, but GW2's PvP is the most fun I have had in any MMO. I did not connect with any of BDO's classes so I did not get to try the PvP.

    You might consider checking out Crowfall, though it is in early alpha right now. It will have zero grind, since it will be passive skill training for the most part.

    OP, like Kano said, your options are pretty much limited to AA (was going to suggest Revelation's beta, but its in a really rough state atm). Keep in mind about the fresh start servers is that they are just that. You'll need a new account to play for just those servers, but no one starts with any advantages and hopefully Trion learned their lesson from the first AA "release".

    Wait what? New ArcheAge servers? And you have to buy a new account? Seriously?

    New servers Dec 10th, which can only be played by new accounts.

    But it is a F2P game with an optional sub (that you'll probably really want to pay)

    I don't get it. It's still ArcheAge, so why are they making people buy brand new accounts? They screw up their initial launch of the game, so out of the kindness of their hearts, they fix it and then decide to make people pay for it again?

    Did FFXIV do that too or did they actually give everyone the new version that had a previous account?

    Crowfall may not be out for years if ever even if they are saying sometime 2017.

    They are making people set up new accounts so no advantage is given to people with account wide bonuses from previous cash shop purchases or in game activities.

    Being free to play means it should not cost you anything to set up a new account.
