I am in a sunwell guild (priest) and for a game that people keep saying is easy, we sure seem to boot enough applicants who show otherwise. Are there easy parts of it? sure.. you dont make much money keeping people around if only the smart ones stay. But if you don't find things that are difficult to do in it, you arn't trying hard enough.

And like the captin said, wow is better then eq in every way possible. Everyone gets hearth (while melee are screwed in eq). Alot more environmental interaction allows for more strategic boss events (Imagin trying to do the split second timing of the cubes on mags using the eq engine). Bosses are ALLWAYS up, quest mobs are ALLWAYS up, theres no such thing as a place holder (go go 48 hour jboots camp). Spawns arnt 27 minutes.

I could go on..
hehehe...true true..but I think I would put it the other way around to be honest.
Wow is easy but SOME parts are hard
Guns dont kill people, Magic missiles do!
