Also, what can I expect on my sig rig? It's not as bad as everyone thinks.. Just you can expect i'm not running at 1080p with AAx2 tongue.gif

I cant speak for AA but with it off my sigrig was pulling constant 100+ at max settings on 1920x1200 I cant imagine on medium/high settings on <1080p would task your machine, you have more than enough RAM and I'd say your cpu should be fine, dunno bout your gpu I'm not much of a mobile person.

The game itself has the combat style of WoW with the conversational style of KoToR (Knights of the Old Republic for the hermit). All NPCs can be interacted with and have their own conversations / stories, which is nicer than asking WoW guard #10272 directions to a tailor. There is a lot of character customisation, I pretty much made the cyborg equivalent of myself when I went Sith Imperial Agent wink.gif

There are "solo" instances for missions where you enter your own version of a room or a cave. There is no loading screens for these areas which is nice and you can bring your friends with you as long as they are a different class.

The game is incredibly immersive, and the Light-side / Darkside choices are very well thought out with some humorous choices. Light/Dark alignment is a requirement for items and gear (eg Light III or Dark IV). Making the same class again and going through it for the alternative stories doesn't sound like the hell it would be if you did the same in say WoW for "one or other" faction choices.

The first 25 levels (If the beta stays true) are incredibly easy and you get there just by going through the game, there is more than enough content to avoid a grind, which for a new MMO is very rare.

I think this game is certainly a great choice for players new to MMOs for this reason.

I don't care if it takes a weekend to get lv 25 and another year to get 50 as long as there is enough content to fuel it.

If you need more information I'm sure there is a billion and one articles about it since the NDA went bye-bye.
