    Just started playing this and I'm really impressed with the presentation. They seem to have hit the UI on the head which isd something that DCUO and CO got horribly wrong.

    I think my main criticism so far is that all the quests are the same and it is very grindy. That seems to be the biggest thing that newer MMOs can't seem to get a handle on which is a shame.

    I agree with you somewhat, but I also felt (but this is maybe seeing it though rose-tinted glasses :)) that I at least had a somewhat more believable reason for the "get 10 of x, rinse/repeat" quests.

    What I do hate is going through an area, finishing quests, handing in quests and then having to go back to the same area again for 'kill x' quests or 'find y' quests.

    Nah I'd probably agree with that to a certain extent Fillem. I think it's that age old gaming cliche of you apparantly being some god amongst men (or smurf like Avatar things) then being sent to fetch and carry. It just strikes me as weird that the MMOs that have come out sicne say....The Burning Crusade haven't implemented their own style of a phasing system.

    Even then, just some quests that break up the pace a little bit every now and then. Rift might have em cos I;ve not really got into the good stuff yet. I realise that as I'm saying that though, they are few and far between amongst the hundreds of fetch and carry quests in WoW anyway. Confirmation bias goes a long way to forgetting how horrific certain quest sequences are in that game.

    Are there any other trial codes floating around for this game, or were they all 'weekend only'?

    Think they ones they sent out were all weekend only. I haven't received any other codes personally.

    It seems like a very good solid MMO but I think just me personally cannot stand the kill/loot/collect/return quest repetition any more. That said I never got further than level 50 on WoW before getting bored too.

    I got a ally code for this weekend from Zavvi but I already have the game so if anyone else wants to use it here it is : TW9D-GKNM-HG3E-T77Q-67H2

    Not sure if it is a one time use only but if you use it please post so someone else does not waste their time.

    Been playing this for about 6 or 7 hours now over the weekend, and I've hit that point where I just don't feel like pushing on anymore.

    It's definitely a very polished MMO, but it just doesn't seem to have the charm of WoW or even Guild Wars for me. I just feels too: "Been there, done that 100 times before", which I guess isn't there fault... but they forgot to remove the tedious grind that even WoW has managed to eliminate with Cataclysm.

    I'd like to same the game has potential, but I don't think it does. I can see it staying the same from now on with only a few performance tweaks and what not being added alongside new content that does exactly the same sort of thing, all over again.

    Nice effort, but needed some more originality to raise it above everything else.

    I've been playing this since Beta 5 I think. I'm really enjoying it, it's a lot more fun than WoW was. I particularly love how exploration is a big part of it, thanks to the Artifact "quests". The World Event that's on at the moment gives you even more to do and some awesome, limited edition items while it's on. It runs well and the developers are really quick to fix any bugs in it. They also listen to the community.

    The class system outshines everything else though. Anyone can tank, it's hilarious.

    I play on Overlook (PvE), Guardian side. My character is a High Elf Cleric called Geraias. :D

    Bah, totally missed this. Looks quite interesting. Never mind, I'll wait on a trial or something.

    I totally misread the front page thing Ven, cheers for the heads up. Got my key so I've give it a try this weekend.

    Well, this thread's gone all quiet- nobody playing any more after the River of Souls shenanigans? Hope not- just levelled my first char all the way to 14 on Firesand - the 'RP' bit of 'RP-PvP' (as well as the (PvP bit) seems to keep the tard population down- unfortunately, it seems to keep the rest of the population down too.

    Think I'll just switch everything off.

    Just subbed. This is actually my first sub MMO. I've only played Guild Wars and a little WoW before this. I was looking for a meaty fantasy MMO RPG which isn't WoW so hoping this meets expectations.

    How many people are playing now, is there enough interest for a guild on Icewatch?

    I'm in one at the moment but only as a result of some merge that happened while I was away for a week.

    Just for chatting, 5 mans, nothing grand or raidy. But equally, don't want to log-in and be the only person ever on.

    I'd could be tempted back into it with people to play with, but I'd have to star a new character on Icewatch I guess.
