I've been trying to find another MMO that I can call "home" since I quit WoW back during Legion.. However I just don't know where to go. I've tried SWTor, GW2, Rift, FF14, BDO, you name it.. Archeage is one game I have yet to play. I was wondering for someone who is casual is it worth trying to get involved? My other option is Bless but reading the reviews we'll see how that goes.
What I'm basically going after is:
Is it fun to play?
Why do you play it?
Am I forced to spend $$$ just to be keep up?
How is the population?
