Sigh, there is barely anything to choose in MMO market :( - Page 2

I'd played WoW since Vanilla, and have raided endgame, top tier since then. I took a break when ToC was announced for about 9 months and came back when the 20% buff was in place through ICC. I took another break after seeing up to 8/12HM of last tier. At that time I thought I was done, I sold my account. I got, a decent price, my rogue was a double glad, tons of server firsts, titles, FoSs.

I just recently came back to WoW (a week before 4.2), fresh account, RAF'd an old friend and was 85 with 2 days 7 hours /played. Since I have taken up a raid lead position in much more casual guild and am enjoying the 2 night a week raiding instead of 5 nights. I honestly feel like its just something to hold me over to GW2 or SWTOR drops though.
My story's essentially the same

Vanilla day 1 veteran, played for 6 years, stopped a few months ago. Holy Pally in Vanilla/TBC, Ret in Wrath/Cata. Have 6 years of realm first experience, US top 100 experience in Vanilla/TBC, quit caring about that in Wrath though, still manged most of the realm 1sts. Main has 139 mounts, 125 pets, 67 titles, 12k achieve points, 67 Feats of Strength.

Actually quit because the game's simply boring, I have no disdain for it in any aspect, I simply moved on. I destroyed everything on the account, which doesn't mean much since Blizzard would honestly restore it if I asked. They've always catered to me when I quit in the past, I think I've had 7 restorations, I used to do it just to see how many times they'd do it, when they told everyone else "You are allotted only a few account restorations" and then they'd turn right around and do whatever I asked restoration wise, no questions asked.

Obtaining Bane of the Fallen King, Light of Dawn, and The Kingslayer *No buff* during Wrath are still some of my fondest memories. It did slightly annoy me that the titles and mounts are still obtainable in Cata, but, it's not an issue.

However, I won't ever go back, it's just a dead game to me. I also completely admit I'm not capable of playing it casually, which is good that I have no more interest in the game. I always found myself logging on in free time working on my next "goal", meaning, a mount, or title, or random achievements.

Having said everything above, I genuinely miss the challenge of teamwork in raiding and related activities and the satisfaction that came along with it. Don't confuse that with elitism though, I never suffered from that, I was a rarity.

Age of Conan - very nice atmosphere, music and visuals. Low player base, gone F2P (did player base increase since then?). I have bad experience from F2P games. Was in closed beta (and even preordered it), even played 2 weeks few months ago, but the gameplay is not that good.
Vanguard - Fun with pretty visuals and a lot of classes and races but too group oriented with barely any players left. Loved the sound of spells tho
Champions Online / DC Universe Online - not my cup of tea, never been a fan of superheroes. Played CO, wasn't very impressed. DC UO got bad reviews.
Lord of the Rings Online - Ok game, still, F2P and I hear its got undeveloped PvP and I'd rather play WoW :x
Final Fantasy XIV - I heard this one is very bad, never tried it tho.
Everquest II - Not sure what to make out of this one. Tried it for a bit, seems interesting with a lot of classes, but kinda dead?
Eve Online - too slow for my taste, played it 2 years ago for about 6 months, still barely know how the game works.

That's it. It seems you're either forced to play WoW or Rift, which is a WoW clone
I play MMORPGs, FPS is not my taste. Any suggestions?
i love EQ2 but its dropped soo much in users. I used to play in 2004-2008 and was on 10-15 hours a day. tried to go back a couple times and its just not the same. no one ever on, no one will group, everyone is looking for raid zones and no one plays for fun anymore.

yeah, Aion is where its at right now, once 3.0 comes out I think it will leave WoW in the dust completely.

This is exactly what everyone said about Aion before it's North American release, and what everyone still says about every mmo that hasn't been released yet, and it will continue to be said until it comes true.

After getting back into paper & pencil sessions recently I took a peek at Dungeons and Dragons Online. Not very bad at all, actually. It looks good, though slightly dated, and runs off of a slightly tweaked version of D&D 3.5 rules. It's also entirely free to play, though you have to purchase certain races/classes if you really want them. It's worth a gander if you're looking for something new yet old.

Unfortunately for me most fantasy MMOs just make we want to replay Dragon Age Origins / DA2. And then no one sees me for two weeks...

well they just released 2.5, and it already added a lot more features, and looks even more visually appealing now.

so just give it a little time, It will happen, I have faith! lol

Also, I know it isn't an MMO but I am very excited for Diablo 3. I have lots of friends as well as my little brother who will be playing it so it is virtually a MMO for me. I will be playing it almost 100% online and in groups with them. We were all big Diablo 2 fans years ago. It's like my own little guild of friends.
yup...remember playing d2 10 years ago with brother and group of friends. i'm not sure d3 can live up to the immense expectations...hoping though. d3 MUST have hardcore mode. the game is just not the same without it.

I also forgot Aion, but I'm not very interested in the game. I actually had plenty of fun, I played it for a couple of months, I was Asmodian on a very imbalanced, Elyos dominated server. I've never seen such imbalanced MMO, yet we were not allowed to transfer away because the other servers were imbalanced as well.
It wasn't really fun to play since I was ganked pretty often whenever I left town. Not that I don't mind PvP and being ganked, it's just that happened a lot and waiting in a town for things to calm down and wasting time was not very appealing. It eventually ended in me playing nights only which of course couldn't last long.
Also, NCSoft seems to have horrible support for European market.

And about Tera. I dunno, just saw some screenshots. Huge weapons, really huge, like 3 times size of the character, a bit exaggerated
