Cool screenshots, but this game looks an awful lot like WoW... With wings.

I can't put my finger on it.. I didn't like WoW. I couldn't stay interested. I can't get enough of AION. It's hard to explain what gives a game that edge. Plenty of games have seemed great on "paper" - but the actually game was just lacking something.

I've played UO, DAoC, EQ, WoW, SB, LoTRO.. *shrug* after a while you can say they all are the same in one way or the other? It's like religion, they don't stray too far from each other, because they *want* people to feel a sense of familiarity when the convert

One major thing -- so far it is NOT about the loot. I am hoping beyond hopes they don't give in to the loot crazies. Classes seemed to be perfectly functional in "ok" gear. Crafters can make some fairly fantastic items, so anyone with the time and desire can equip themselves nicely. They have gone out of their way to stop camping, after a certain level mobs stop dropping loot for you. Instances only work when you're in the appropriate level range. (The first instance is level 25-2 Mobs, even named mobs, don't always have rare loot. I LOATHE games that are all about the gear. Just because you have some fucking amazing sword doesn't mean you're a good pvper. It means you played 90 hours in some goddamn dungeon and got that sword. You know?

The high end crafted is still on par with it. And anyone has access to abyss gear -- its not drops. The Abyss armor just takes money and abyss points - which you get from killing people and hunting there.

it's not on par, tho you do need it to be able to get APs. Crafted gear is pve, Abyss is pvp (it has considerable bonuses for pvp damage and damage reduction).

That said you won't be getting those without some good crafted gear (or very lucky drops) in first place

Beautiful looking game. I might even consider playing if they supported OSX. =\

I like what I hear about the gear. Gear dependent games make me gag.
