Been playing the release version and literally the only thing the energy system has prevented us from doing is doing more then one of the guild gathering missions in a row, where you have to cut down like 800 trees in a set time limit or something. It's basically a non-factor outside of things like that.

As someone who got to + 15 everything, it took about 3 months of solid playing without buying stones from the cash shop. I ground imps and cyclops for hours and did my daily scrolls and it still took far too long to even get to the bare minimum for late game content gear wise. Compared to the whales in my guild who where sitting on maxed gear after 2 weeks after paying through the nose for it, that system is not going to last in a western market at all.
Game's easy tbh

Would also like to know.

I'm not really interested in playing but my brother picked it up and kept trying to sell it to me. Be good to get another opinion.

I am and i love it. Best MMO I've played in years bar none. Perfectly suited to my super casual playstyle (ie limited time).

*edit - moment of weakness ffs, promised myself, no more game essays.
In summary: it's a sandbox experience but not for everyone.

Thanks, I might take a looksy, as you say its initial price is quite cheap. I like open world games but to be honest I tend to get bored of proper sandbox games reasonably fast, I don't know why but I do personally tend to favour and enjoy a progressive story and quest environment a bit more than true sandbox games.

I think you'd still be surprised though. There are quests aplenty, and if you give the game a chance, I think you'd find it gets its claws into you. Then again, it's *you*

A key factor is - you dont have to go hunting for things to do, or to make your own fun. There's almost too many things to do, but thankfully they're not like Dragon Age Inquisition's annoying collection quests.

Don't suppose anyone has a friend pass or something of the like I could steal to try it?

Anyone play this out of interest? I still play this sparingly when I have a bit of free time - super casually. It's one of the best mmo's ive played - not from a get to the end and raid point of view - but just as a log in, explore and do random shit type thing.
