I've been in Lord of the Rings Online since launch and I have to say that I really enjoy it. It's not set-up like WoW as far as horde/Alliance but it is set-up well. Though PVP is not a huge part of the game (which Im not a fan of that anyway) there are PvP zones you can try. Anyway - just my 2 cents on it.

EVE Online. You'll either love it or hate it. I loved it but hated leveling.

Age of Conan - If you love PVP.

LOTRO - If your into the lore and love PVE.

Aion will be good as well.

You cant really direct an mmo to just anyone.

Some are way to complicated that x person won't like it no matter how hard he tries
Some people prefer a simple mmo that turns person Y down because he prefers more variarity.

I'm currently waiting for Aion, the character design suits my taste and so does the general class aspects.

Ive never even looked at war hammer online just because i don't like the way it looks

Well there's games that keep you going through the grind because it has so much other stuff to do then just... grind.

But yeah, there are numerous examples of games that are just a total grindfest and actually FORCE you to achieve the highest possible lvl to actually have any chance to whatever it is you'd like to do.

and yeah, stick away from the f2p games. Even if the game is great it'll eventually turn into a pay 2 dominate fest or cheaters heaven

I am actually just starting up again. I played for a few weeks a year ago. It is one of those games where, even if you play 24/7, it is impossible to hit a "highest level". You have to set skills to train. But apparently the game is really good when you get those skills up and get in a good corp. That is what I am hoping for anyways.

Eve online, it is super complicated but if you want pvp and something completely different in a MMO then it is a good one.
