And thats ok, you can do none group oriented aspects in games but I think when it comes down to the combat part of the game it should be group oreinted. In most fantasy novels (which the basis of these games are built off of) its always about a group of adventurers accomplishing tasks.

In EQ I use to craft while in groups... it was a great way to kill the downtime... espeically when you needed to level up skills for certain quests.

Why can't they build a system where it requires specific task for certain classes during group quests. DDO tried this but with the multiclassing it basically made many pure classes obsolete.

Unfortunately endgame raiding is about the only place that something like this exists, and even there most classes are marginalized into a fairly mundane and repetitive role - look at rogues in WoW for example. An entire aspect of their class is basically disregarded (stealth) in favor of pure damage output. The closest they ever came to using stealth in raids was to disarm the traps in BWL.

Thats what im saying, games are so poorly designed in the aspect of trying to create unique and original encounters on a regular basis. Every MMORPG has these capabilities but none do them properly at all.

I want to see Dungeons and Dragons done right...

TBH I kind of like the current MMORPG formula; I'd just like to try something new. WoW is still fun but the current endgame is a mess.

Well, I enjoyed Anarchy Online, from these guys, despite it's problems initally.

I'm not sure what the plan is for AOC (endgame) but I guess we'll find out soon enough. I have a Fileplanet ID so I hope to get into the open beta.

Assassins in eq2 use stealth all the time, they have to use it for their big attacks to activate

Conans not the game for me, ill stick with EQ2 untill WAR comes out and ill check it out.

I've been playing a Shadownight in EQ2 for 3 years now, i guess i got lucky and found a good guild - and i think thats what its all about, finding great people to play with.

You'll be glad to hear then Magus, that AOC is the closest thing to EQ1 since, well, EQ1... A bit better than EQ2 really, and looking much nicer with a lower hardware requirement.

Ive been reading the NDA dropped like yesterday. I bit the bullet and preordered it today since I'm so sick of WOW and their screwed up PVP system since the patch. Anyone on horde thats been starting out in games heavily outnumbered but with long queue times and many open games in WSG, EOTS and AB know exactly what I'm talking about.

My WOW time expires May 21st and after that Bliz can kiss my ass

Agreed on all counts, my subscription expired this morning.
