That must be why I'm disliking most traditional MMOs. I don't want to do raids. I don't want to grind for the best gear. I want to play with people and have fun.

I share that emotion.

Ot: Does anyone have any suggestions for mmos that focus on parties? It'd be fun to gather some Elliquiy members on mumble and have a nice time playing one.

Most MMOs really don't focus on parties unless you're raiding or pvping together not to mention a lot of people will probably want to play something they don't have to fork out a sub for.

Sadly no.  And it's not likely to every happen again.

It's more of the nature of players.  Back in Ultima Online, most players were still getting used to the idea of an MMO.

Now, most of the 'Hardcore' (which aren't at all, they're just people who've either played long enough to understand the legal exploits, or copycats who've read it somewhere on the internet) have realized how to get the 'best stuff', and most of that's End Game level.  Which is almost always through grinding, via Raids.

And everyone just wants the 'best' stuff.  After all, if you can just craft it, then why bother playing the game after you have it?

Ah that's a bummer, that was one of my favorite things.

That is what I miss about the 'old' crafting in WoW. You had to quest for gear recipes, you had to get folks to help you go into a dungeon for the Master Enchanting Trainer. The specialization meant something back then. Dragonscale Laetherworkers were doing instance for their LAST set recipe! ect.

Now. It's so easy to make things.

I wish FFXIV: ARR crafting had special recipes that only dropped from certain places and would be worth something. Right now my server is starting to hit that stage where it is becoming hard to sell anything because everyone can make it.

Elliquiy has a decent presence on DDO's Thelanis server.

DDO is pretty fun. The server the guild Veks is on has some pretty friendly people too. It's worth looking up at least.

After I wake back up tomorrow (cause yay for the midnight shift) I plan to jump servers and starting from scratch as well.  Which works well since I've not played for awhile and would be rusty with the controls if I jumped into the characters on my current server.

I used to play DDO, but that was AGES ago. I'm pretty sure I have a level 17 Elven Cleric that's just been sitting in a tavern for 3 years. XD
Interestingly enough, it actually was on Thelanis server! I may have to pop back in sometime.

I finished downloading DDO about a half or so ago. Now I'm just waiting the annoyingly long installation to finish...

First off, sorry if none has touched this thread in a while. Saw the MMO question and had to answer.

The most recent one was the Elder Scrolls Online beta, but I doubt I'll be giving it a proper go. I enjoyed Skyrim and what of the beta I got to play seemed decent for beta (sadly, I kept having login issues. Last two beta plays I just didn't bother). Been watching a playthrough online and it looks beautiful. I just don't want to pay the subscription fees for it.

I've considered going back to Everquest, which one the first MMO I played and my favorite of all, but it's changed so much I don't even recognize it anymore. At least it's free.

There's others out there, but I doubt I'll find one that gives me the enjoyment or experience pre-Luclin EQ had. Still say that version of the game was the best MMO ever released.

If it weren't another subbed game, I'd get into it.  Although, truth be told, I'm waiting for what they do with the Dark Knight.  What the goal will be, what type of weapon the class will be (Cuz I'm hoping for Greatsword) stuff like that, and if it's enticing enough...  I might get into it.

I have recently returned to Pirates of the Burning Sea. It's free and surprisingly enough, there are still plenty of people playing. This shocked me really. I might get back into it. It's free after all, and who doesn't want to be the captain of their own gun-totting pirate ship?!

Yeah, it'll be interesting to see if Dark Knight makes it in! I imagine it will, every base class will eventually split into two jobs. Since they use swords, it might make sense for them to branch off of Gladiator and use some sort of greatsword, though maybe they'll branch off of Lancer and use scythes of some sort. Also if you hadn't heard, Rogue and Ninja were confirmed for next patch!

Each class/job share a weapon type.  So if Dark Knight comes out its base will have to use a greatsword.  That being said, Dark Knight and Gunner are two of the most wanted jobs and Ninja was as well.

Well, there's a bit of an exception to that, as WHM and BLM can use either a two-handed staff, or a wand and a shield. So it would make a lot of sense if they enabled Gladiators, Paladins and Dark Knights to do this as well.

EDIT: Speaking of which, I got the Wave Buckler, and my roommate beat me on the roll for the Wave Wand by like, 1 point, and he doesn't even have WHM leveled -_-

Wouldn't it be more Marauder having the Greatsword, as opposed to the Gladiator?  I thought the Glads were one hand and shield (According to what we discussed about the game, Sin.  I could, of course, be misremembering it.)

Yup, gladiators are pure mitigation tanks.  You would have to fully change their abilities around to give them greatswords.  As for for white and black mages they are essentially the same except for one does damage the other heals but they both are of the mage variety.
