    So I'm looking for a MMORPG to invest my time in but I can't seem to find one that really meets my standards I guess, basically I'm looking for one that has a extensive leveling system that also brings the player unique weapons through either raids or hard a** quests. Also it would be nice if I could buy a plot to build a house for weapon storage, I wanna go on but I'll leave it at that. Am I asking for a bit too much ?

  2. I'm kind of really out of touch on MMOs, but I know Aion and Wildstar give you the ability to have a house - though I don't know much more past that. I don't know if you can store stuff at them or what other functions they may even provide.

    Aion used to be (years back when it released) tough when it came to getting good loot from instances. When I last looked into it, after it went F2P, they greatly increased the item drop rate and they kind of give you good things (weapons/armor/items) to fast track you to the end game content. I can't speak for the current end game things for Aion, but it still appears to be a lively (enough) MMO with the handful of servers they still run.

    Wildstar, all I know is you can get a house - that's about as far as I made it into the game, so it's been almost 3 years since I last played it. I'm not even sure how active the game really is anymore. It wasn't bad, but it just couldn't sway the handful of people I know that tried it away from WoW. They hung around for a few months and then went back to WoW so I didn't personally know anyone playing it and it became more of a chore to play for me so I stopped.

    If you don't mind subscription based games, you should really try FFXIV! The story is great, quests are fun, there are long quest chains for unique weapons for every job/class, you can buy your own plot and get a house, the community is full of great and helpful people, and two of my favorite things:
    1. You can have all classes on one character! You just need to pick up the job from a quest and then you basically just swap your weapon to change class!
    2. Dungeons scale in level, so you can play with friends in different levels!
    Also there's the bonus of if you play on NA, we have an official Razer guild on the world Behemoth!

    I've been told about that game, although I don't mind a subscription payed game the prices confused me a bit. Is it I buy the game then the 60 day access pass and renew it whenever I want or is there a auto charge ? I go through long bits of hiatus so a auto charge wouldn't be very good to me

    Well when you first buy the game you get a free 30 days included, then you can either buy gametime cards for 60 days of gametime, or use an auto renewing subscription, your choice!

    Great ! That's just to my fitting, So about the weapons are their any unique drops ? Like limited raids where only certain people get a rare weapon or mount etc... And I'll be sure to join the Razer guild once i get the chance

    There are drops from raids, like mounts, armor and weapons that you can grind for and pray to the RNG gods that it drops for you haha

    I got a cool down for posting too much as a new member :slightly_sad: and forgot what I was going to say, but ah good old RNG it's been messing with me for a while now but i'll go with it. Are staff on that game active ? Like constant community events and stuff like that

    I don't know about staff, but the community usually holds stuff like fashion shows, parties etc, which is pretty fun. I've even attended a few weddings! Also at the moment there's a Yokai Watch event, where you can get weapon skins that look like the different Yokai!

    Have you ever played Neverwinter? https://www.arcgames.com/en/games/neverwinter
    It is Free, and you can take it as slow or as fast as you want. I see players who are at endgame content within the first month easy. Plus the community is relatively positive. It is not HUGE but it is big enough that you are meeting new people every day all day long. If you want a jumpstart or extra boost you can pay into it a little. There isn't personal real-estate as it is an instance-based game and not a sandbox, but there is an extensive guild system which includes an instance that is the guild Stronghold. It is high-fantasy, based on D&D 4th edition and as far as I have been told, similar to World of Warcraft but more focused on "raids" (or as we like to call it in Neverwinter: Dungeons! xD) Here's a video clip of one of my characters doing a very common "raid"

    Tiamat run

    Thanks for the suggestion but from the looks of that raid the mechanics of the game don't really appeal to me (plus I dislike free to plays since most of them end up being pay to win, although I have ran into a few ftps that were alright)

    World of Warcraft. It's still one of the most played MMO's, and although it's not as hardcore anymore as before, it's still a game I gladly come back to to check out the new content.

    I personally really recommend Final Fantasy 14. It's has unique weapons which you can grind at Raid Dungeons.
    The good thing about those "raids" is that you join a party with 7 other players (2 Tanks / 2 Healers / 4 Damage Dealer). Those raids are intense because you need to know what you have to do. You can't simply running around and doing shit. You only need to learn the attack pattern and afterwards it will be a piece of cake as long you dodge the skillshots by the raid bosses and still doing the right think e.g. Tank you should take the aggro of the monsters.

    Final Fantasy 14 allows you to buy a plot and customize it. I'm not sure if it's possible to store your items on the plot.

    The community is mostly very nice. There are some retards in the late game which always blame you if you don't do your job right but I think that's kinda normal nowadays.

    The big downside to Final Fantasy 14 is the slow pace combat and the monthly fee which you need to pay.

    But neverthenless I love this game :)

    Yes, yes FF has caught my attention I'm just taking care of a few overdue payments because I have spending problems and then I will be buying it along with a pass :smile_:

    Meh, tried it didn't really stick to me

    Maybe you try the free trial first before you buy the actual game and pay the monthly fees because FF14 isnt a game for everyone. It has a very slow pace combat which is a big "turn-off".

    I recommend to download the free trial version from website (if possible) because I heard that there are some issues regarding downloading the game from Steam.

    Edit : I think you find more info's here : https://freetrial.finalfantasyxiv.com/de/

    Try and have a look at Blade&Soul its been lunched in 2015 i think and i can tell its like no other MMO i have seen.
     
  19. While I really loved Gothic and Gothic 2....and Gothic 3 was okay.....Gothic 4 (I do not and will not acknowledge this game).....they're not MMOs.

    I would say if you never played them and want a decent single player game or two to kill time in, check out Gothic and Gothic 2. If you're a big fan of them, then perhaps give Gothic 3 a try as well.

    World of Warcraft, The Secret World, Star Trek Online, Archeage, Star Wars the Old Republic, Guild wars 2 and Revelation Online are all good depending on your preference
