I got to play for a little under a hour last night and so far I am interested. The graphics are nice and other than the que the game did not seem very laggy to me. I will be putting more time into this.

it's pretty fun, though it can be a bit grindy at times. The pvp zone is pretty ****ing cool and the graphics are awesome.

Feels like EQ/DaoC from the leveling perspective which is a good thing to me but with a bit of the easy **** from WoW thrown in.

I'm enjoying it but playing fairly casual =]

It's definitely got some heavy grinding in certain parts. If you can make it to 25 and start doing instances and the PvP in the Abyss, you will probably start liking the game a whole lot more. Instances give massive XP per kill. It changes a lot at 25, and for the better.

So far it's a great game.

I want to like the game, but it's too much of a grind-fest.

What are you some WoW fanboi? So what, you have to put in your time to level. You don't HAVE to grind. But it's the fastest way to level. It isn't however a requirement.

Are you retarded? It is NOT possible to lvl from quests alone. At low levels, sure, but 30+ it's not possible and you're forced to grind the majority of your levels.

PS: I don't mind putting work into my character as long as it isn't mind numbingly dumb like grinding is.

So, what you're saying is that you've only played WoW before this...

I played DAoC before WoW and the grind wasn't that bad depending on if you were soloing with a bot or grouping - some classes weren't bad completely solo. It's a fact Aion's grind is horrid, but all the fanboys just say "lols its not wow roflnoob, its ok that teh grindz is bad cuz its just like other older and less popular/successful/fun mmos!! omgz you gots to do work to lvl ur char!!!!!". Aion's endgame sounds fun, but I'd rather have fun and not "work" lvling my character to experience the endgame, aka main content, of a game.

Honestly the grind is not that bad. Yeah, you end up having to grind maybe 50-20% of your level once you hit around 18 or so. Once you get access to the instance at 25, you get a minimum of 50% per run. Can do that every 16 hours. Takes about 30 minutes or so to do. Getting in groups to do dungeons is a great alternative to grinding by yourself. Or group up with someone and duo elite type mobs. I do pretty much everything with a sorcerer, and we get 40k+ per kill on elites at 27.

Don't get me wrong, the grind is a lot worse than WoW for sure. Worse than DoAC. Maybe on par, or a bit worse than Everquest. It's no Lineage 2 or any other Korean MMO that takes days to get a level for the average person. This is the first Korean MMO in ages that I haven't felt I would never reach cap level.

Just my opinion.

Here's a spreadsheet which reprensents the amount of grinding you have to do from 31 - 44.. if you don't call that grinding, give your head a shake..

more grinding than EQ?

screwwwwww that

how does having to spend more time doing mindless grinding make a game harder?
if you had to complete difficult quests or encounters or something to level, I'd say yeah that's harder. grinding just takes something easy and makes you repeat it over and over so it takes a long ****ing time.
