I can’t Wait to see if this non levelling system of player progression actually works.

I for one am quite tired of the shopping-list mentality of wow, and would gladly cancel my subscription if something a little less like RL came out.

For Me,It’s not about achievements or Phat lewts that everyone else has as well.

It’s about Adventure, the Unknown, and especially an escape from Real life.

I want more than one path to walk down, and I am Hoping I will Be able to get Completely lost, and get My butt kicked and find an item or two than is actually unique.

That’s what I want, Hopefully this world will provide it.

Just about done with WOW as they are just phoning it in now.

And even though they have the budget to provide better and more expansive content,their bean-counters have hobbled the designers to the point that it’s painfully obvious that they don’t care about adventure as much as profit.

I Truly hope that this Game will be different, because in any creative industry (like Music, for instance) the more You create for profit, the less inspiring Your creation will be.
