true,it seems from what i hear that all the hardcore enjoy the non_PvE(GvG mostly not PvP) aspect of the game more than itsPvE.(after they had gone through the whole PvE couple of times i assume?!)
but I'd personally prefer to explore,feel the world,lengthen the moment.
I hate to use excessive shortcuts to skip the content and level up.that way I would be getting myself owned for not experiencing the content i had payed for to see!
I'm alright with farming for raising funds but not for PLing(although it has alittle bit of both).
