So anyone know any good MMORPG's to play while waiting for wildstar to release?
Ignoring the elephant in the room I've found the following very entertaining, each with their own highlights and minimal / no barrier to entry.
Unless specifically stated otherwise or the game doesn't have regional servers I'm talking about the US publishers.
(I play from EU but this distinction is important because Gameforge et al is the devil)
GuildWars 2 (initial purchase required)
TERA (free to play, cosmetic cash shop)
RIFT (free to play, cosmetic/convenience cash shop)
The Secret World (initial purchase required, "expansions" in the form of DLC)
None of these games has a sub fee, they're different enough to give you options.
I'm still dabbling in all of them from time to time but I spend most my time in TSW atm and I've been surprised at how much fun I'm having in the game.
A definite plus is they have an amazing business model, the most customer friendly I've found in recent games.
This game seriously didn't make the splash it deserved or maybe it released in an unfinished state and I was lucky to get to try it now, after the initial problems have been smoothed out.
Guild Wars 2.
That is about it for me..... Mostly Tera.
I have a free level 58 character from a quiet promotion Tera did in the fall where you made a character with .levelup on the end of the name and they ran a script boosting all those characters to 2 levels away from the cap + gold to taste the endgame or have a decent alt. I still haven't used it, I ought to.
Just don't open up the player shop....
Check the following threads for PLENTY of suggestions!
I'm actually kinda in the boat right now myself and I'm desperately trying not to go back to WoW. I really want to know if Wildstar is for me, but until I can get into Beta (Open or Closed) I've been kinda looking for something to hold me over. I'll be taking a look at those threads and hopefully something will stick out for me.
I been playing Rift but none of my friends want to play. I have played Tera and a few others mentioned here.
LOL, I've skimmed it, nothing I personally want but the quality of the cosmetics are pretty decent if you're into them. I'm actually kind of surprised that the pickings are so slim, similar to WoW's; I guess quality takes time *shrug*
I'm just playing swtor atm
Playing Rift atm.
Playing FFXIV atm.
