It is great fun.
I have 5 toons all in their 20's... all have totally different skill-sets and play-styles.
Today, though, I saw my first gold-seller-spam which is a great shame.
Compared to "the other" online fantasy game it is brilliant, imho. There is very little grinding atm, as most xp tends to come from questing. And there are TONS of quests! There are a few bugs, but they are doing a great job of fixing/patching. Classes are a LITTLE unbalanced, but, this is early days! There are already plenty of guild-settlements, which is nice.
I am enjoying it much more than I enjoyed WoW, but I do not see why crafting only begins at lv40?? You can begin harvesting @ lv20, however.
The downtime for the servers is done at a sensible time (4am til 8am) which is also cool.
Levelling is quite fast, which although nice, does lend me to think that they are gonna have to get an expansion out REAL soon!
The graphics are, for an mmorpg, TRULY STUNNING!
The voice-acting (which atm is mainly during lvs 1 - 20 but that is going to change according to the devs) is spot-on.
So far, at least on my server (Hyrkania), the kids have not moved in; therefore there is a helpful and friendly community. I have only seen the term *noob* used once in 2.5 weeks.
The lore and backstory for your character is very good, and will only get better imho.
