So I have been a jaded mmo-er since 2006 and haven't really been able to find anything that I can enjoy since all games became "everybody wins a trophy" gameplay with the game being locked down so much. I have a few questions.
#1 Are they going to stay away from instance cancer route this time?
#2 Is leveling/farming gear going to be more group required instead of doing everything solo?
#3 how many different classes are there?
#4 what kind of flagging system, or open world pvp will it be?
#5 What are the different ways leveling to cap will be done and how long does it take on average (I'm hoping at least 6 months).
#6 are water areas the main focus of the game? What is there to do on land? Are there sieges every other weekend like L2 had?

I have only watched a few videos on it when my friend showed me the game a few years back (sometime in 2010). I said it looks cool but the current estimated release date then was 2013, so I am only checking up on it now. So yes I am clueless, and before I go do some heavy researching into this game, I just wanted some basic questions answered of a type of mmorpg that I am looking for. I thank you for answering the question about classes, but your attitude needs a little work. So feel free to answer or gtfo. This is an mmorpg website forum for players to talk about games. I stick by my questions.

I'll try and answer your questions..:)
Killing enemy clans or factions are ok and you will not be put on trail.
The hardcores that grind 24/7 can get to endgame in about 2-3 weeks. The casuals will probably take 3-4 months to get to endgame. Solo players probably 4+ months.
Again it's a virtual breathing world, go explore the land...lol
They turned off the sieges in CB5 because it was only for 2 weeks and nobody was able to get to endgame. In CB4 the sieges were every weekend.

That might have been the case for CB4, but for CBT5 many things have changed and one of them is the easier leveling system...
For CBT5 it was enough to "overdue" the quests to reach level 50, there was no need to grind the mobs at all for XP. There were some people who reached the max level in 3 days (and keep in mind that servers were off allot).
During the 2 week of beta, there were already many level 50 players. so i would say that a casual gamer will make to level 50 in about 1-2 months, for hardcore gamers its gonna be 1-2 weeks (same as in themeparks), however for the soloers it will be a pain, they will reach level 30 easy, but after that they will die more (lose XP) then gain XP since its more of a group orientated game, even the questing.

ArcheAge has the most complex endgame atm, and there are plenty of things to do for people who don't like to PvP, for example:
- gathering and crafting (the best items are gained with crafting, so it has a huge role in AA).
- building houses, farms, planting trees and plants (some plants even underwater), for guilds building the castle and the walls on the 3rd continent, and all this in an open world.
- hunting for treasure chest under the sea.
- transporting gods from one location to another (its a new trading system).
- being a trader, buying stuffs cheap and selling for income, sorta control the economy.
- exploring the huge (it is really huge, other MMO maps look tiny to AA) open world (it is truly open, no invisible barriers to block you)
- do instances as in other games
- do dynamic events and kill world bosses (these involves seme open world PvP tho)
These are some of the tings to do, if you are not really into PvP.
Sandbox is your only hope for a decent mmo ;)

Can not wait for this game to be released. Finaly a game that might be worth something. Havent found a game this complex since SWG and i am 100% ready for it.
Anyone complaining about bad games and lack of content should try this and learn how a real mmo is played ;)

I see some pictures of the possible races, any new info about them when they implemented or ever be implemented?
11/02/12 3:02:01 AM#13
High Elves - Self explanatory
Nuian - The western humans (they got the European theme)
Hariharans - The eastern humans (they got the Asian theme)
Dwarves - Self explanatory
Fairies - Yes there is a Fairy race and supposedly a playable race
Warborn - Half demon/half minatour race
Returned - This is a undead like race
Xl Games hasn't said anything on when Returned or Fariies will be playable. Many fans hope they will be playable by the time the game releases here in NA.

So, we have to wait for the open beta.
Thanks for the info Kumapon.

New question: in betas, how much you guys restricter about buildings(i see tons of video build a fortress, house, cultivate ground...etc.), i mean, can be builded a player driven fortified city in beta?

CBT5 didn't run long enough for players to build much. But in CBT4 there were some extensive fortresses built. While it is an official video release, these are player run sieges, on player designed and built fortifications.
