Well, the 6th and final Closed Beta Test weekend ended yesterday, and I have a lot of thoughts to chew over it.
What There Is To Like
There is a lot of good in this game. Level 1 to 20 is just plain fun on every class I tried. The game is gorgeous and I like the lore story. The Campaign Quest series is very smooth and the Standard Quests fill in the level gaps nicely. 1-20 was very smooth for me and I usually had to do little or no grinding to get to the next level. There were some gaps, but once you understand the mechanics of this system (and after all, that is why I am here for you, right?) it is not hard to close those minor gaps.
The combat system is smooth even though it is simpler and even though it is easier than EverQuest II I never felt like I was not actually in control. The combat was not easy mode. There is just enough complexity in it to make the play-style of the different classes, well... different.
What I Am Unhappy With
more to come... still working on this. :)
