I'm always wary of "miracle patches" that are promised towards the end of open betas in MMO's. It's been my experience that they never come. But if what you guys are saying is true (and I've no reason to doubt you) then this is great news.

They gave out the free level 20 buff and opened up the areas, time to explore a bit.

The open zones are really cool. Sorry, I'd take screenshots but this current beta client isn't terribly stable - basically opening the options menu crashes it, and there are tons of graphic glitches at the moment. Seems like it's unique to this build though.

Anyway I'm still on the fence...the questing is basically the same old stuff you're used to with fedex and kill x of mob y being the primary theme, the zones are huge and the cities look awesome, but once you're out in the wild the graphics engine really shows its seams. For example, in the Cimmeran city area, the background sky is a dark blue in color where there is a bright white distance fog effect, greatly contrasting the outline of the horizon and the sky. It looks awful. Gameplay is a mixed bag - the combat system really is great, but the targeting system and general combat mechanics are kind of clunky at the moment (i.e., point blank ranger shooting, losing target randomly, etc).

I'm not going to buy this on launch day. I'm gonna wait for a few weeks or a month afterwards and see how things are then. I want to see detailed reports/reviews of the mid to high level game because I have a feeling it's a pile of ****.

I like the lvl 20 bump, but I end looking at all the spells and going which is which and how do I use that. Thats ok tho., makes it kinda fun I guess.

I like the casters a lot. But how hard is it to actually get the gear they gave out ingame when playing retail ?

I must admit that I do not know a whole lot about this game, where to go, how talents work, or even the PvP Aspect.

But after seeing the lvl 20's stuff I am on the fence. But I also figure that it might end up with city gate camping, and all that noob PvP junk that I hate so much.

Where are [people getting this from. The raiding endgame is the same as wow, and the pvp endgame is like a more advanced version of daoc. lol

Well just as I figured. You head out of the town and.. lag attacked dead. So you are on the rez stone and move out, attacked dead. If you happen to get the better hand of the lag you can actually fight some one. But basicly they stand out side of the rez stone and nuke anything that moves off of it.

Now thats fun ! and great PvP Ha !

Right now there is no reason to play on a PvP server...they suck ass because the higher levels just sit at a zone in or rez point and kill low levels over and over again. The best bet is to play on a PvE server which is about the same as a WoW PvP server, and you can still take part in seiges and stuff.

problem is they made all the playable servers pvp for the moment, cant really check things out as too many people going around killing you for no reason.
