Push pass all of the things that are making you not like it (I know they exist because I had to push pass them too).
Push pass the learning curve (it took me like 18 levels with no googling just to feel like I halfway knew what I was doing).
Socialize. It's a social game. And I don't mean just sitting in General chat and running your mouth either. I mean linking up your quests in order to get others to come help you with them. I mean walking up to people and just saying hello. I can see that there is an obvious void in this game and others (maybe because of so many of the now automated features that take those requirements out of the hands of the players) of people who are willing to just get to know other people, but in this game it is almost imperative that you pull up your grown up pants and stop being all shy and get out there and mingle. You will have a much better time if you do.
And then come back here in about 20 levels and let me know what you thought.
I've been playing this game casually now for about 3 weeks and I've really been enjoying it. In fact, I've been enjoying it so much that I've noticed my playtime increasing and that old feeling of wanting to get in the game, a feeling that I don't think I've had with the last two MMORPG's that I've played, returning.
I'm guessing that after that initial 20 levels or so, your only real complaint is going to be that more people aren't playing. And that's why I came here to post this post.
