Great article!  Couldn't agree more with this.  Bring back challenge.  Bring back long travel times.  Make a world that feels huge again.  Bring back non-instanced dungeons.  Bring back groups!  Bring back a world where you play the game, not the UI (so limit the maps).  I want to sit in a dungeon again for 5 hours camping rare items.

Good, there are dozens of other games you can play then. Though I'm not sure the MMo genre is really what you're looking for.

Sorry but the Fae, much like Blood Elves, bring in the 2kewl4school tryhards. If it's a beautiful tragic anti-hero race, then it WILL be the most played. That's where the big money is, and we all know SOE loves the $$$. 

Not only is it a guarantee that they will make a return, but they will be featured prominently in all the marketing campaigns for EQN.

Why do people want instanced dungeons?  Go play Skyrim if you want a dungeon all to yourself.

I agree completely with Adam.

No damn FAE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! stupid faery bastards!!  The only good Fae is a dead Fae.

Yes to boats! YES!!! I've been screaming at SOE since they broke them in EQ1 to bring them back.

No instances, instances are the devils work.

To the OP, I agree with what you say except the story part.  I get what you are saying about the story driving a linear progression, so fine .. elminate that.  But you can still have a great story without driving everything.  FFXI had great story, but those had almost nothing to do with leveling.  You had to grind catch up with the story, but it was great. 

Don't ditch a good story - just don't make it the only way to level...

This.

And to the people say "Well what about  a LITTLE instancing!" If your game is designed well you should never need an instance. And all MMOs in the past that started with a LITTLE instancing just got lazy and used it for everything.

There are other options than global auction houses. Player houses, player vendors, ect. All would be much better than an auction house. FFXIV had a lot of great ideas they should have stuck with, but they didn't execute them well.

i'm not a huge fan of "over instancing" either, but i'm also not looking forward to returning to the days of "Camp Check!".  Maybe with enough open dungeons and ones that are epic in size it won't be as much of a problem.

Instanced dungeons are not needed, however to have any raids at all you need to either accept instances or come up with a new way to do it.  I.E raid bosses are trigger spawned and not static.  You do not need instances if you want raids if they do it right.

the first mmo's had zero instancing.  I agree with you on the if designed well not needing instancing thing.  The original mmo's worked fantastically well and every dungeon was public.

You can thank SOE for the curse of instances.  LDoN

EQ had camps because zones were small and overcrowded they were designed for 50 people but had over 100 in the zone.   If you look at games like Vanguard with HUGE dungeons that is where I hope EQN takes it.

It's not a "one or the other" type deal. You can have an instanceless game without the boss camping of old EQ. Quite easily. Many games have done it.

EQ had instnaces before LDoN.    About a year before it Plane of Time raids were instanced.   EQ started the dungeon instancing with LDoN but quickly went away from it.   Now group missions are instanced, but generally you camp/xp in open zones.

 

Instancing in EQ was a technical issue they had to do it.  The game engine is 15 years old using code programmers don't even use anymore.  

 

If you played EQ before POP open world raids were a good thing until another guild killed it before you and now you didn't get to kill the mob and it had a 5 day respawn.

I'm horrible at grammar but you're list shows all the things you don't want small map etc. Problem one topic is no fae! So do you want no fae or going along the lines of how your main topics are you wish fae to be in it. It reminds me of the college humor video of the grammar nazi spoof; dangling participle. 

Yea, I'd like some details on what it's about, I have this vision that it's going to be wow graphics and web based gameplay. That would be epic sad, what they need to do is something original.

The single most overrated thing in MMORPG is that of no zoning.  If having zoning helps the game run better, than have zoning.  i would MUCH rather have EQ1's zoning but with huge zone lines than modern games where there are clearly separate zones, and you are funneled between one or two entrance points to get to them.

I love how split the community is on this issue. Lot of really valid and well thought out opinions on either end. Pretty cool to read them all.

Everyone ITT saying they want instancing gone are going to be crying/begging for it back when it's near impossible to get any good gear drops due to camping.

Good list, BUT..

     I do like zones like the old EQ did and GW2 does now..  Sometimes a seamless world makes it harder for a dev to transfer a character from one zone to another.. What I mean here for example take Dreadlands..  To go from that zone to neighboring ones would be harder to draw, especially if you are moving from an open land zone to an interior castle like KC..  I never measured it, but if you are in Dreadlands KC is for example 200 x 200.. but once you zone in to KC, the area is MUCH bigger then what Dreadlands implies it is..  This gives the devs freedom to "fudge" on reality.. Can you imagine how much of a bitch it would be to seamless draw the swamp, and both upper and lower guk?   Is it even possible? 

     No more instancing, unless it's like ONE instanced room for a quest NPC..  Learn to play well with others, or don't play at all :)  I hope that EQN allows for "soft" grouping like GW2 does.. I also don't want to see the number of drops from mobs..  This is crazy how bad STUFF is passed out in modern day MMO's..  I'ts like asking for candy at Halloween, everyone gets some at every door..  Really.. you loot a wolf and find a +4 Uber Sword of death... ?????  Who came up with this crazy logic.. I know it's fantasy, but geeesh..  I think even GW2 has too many magic drops by mobs.. 

     Gear needs to be reasonably incremental in growth..  With all the crazy magic drops in games today, Players become GODS by max level ONE SHOTTING everything..  I don't want a max level character being 2,000x more powerful then a newbie..  Back in the day if you found something with +2 or +4 you were in heaven..  SHIT.. look at WoW now, items now have +500 stat bonus or more..  Just crazy.. 

     Absolutely no more quest story lines..  I don't mind an epic type quest for a special item(s).. I am open tho to having a larger number of bounty reward NPC..  Bring me 10 wolf hides and receive 10 gold, 50XP..  Keep it simple..

I don't know anything about how EQN's drops are going to work, but this post here just shows how trapped inside the box most players are when thinking about MMO's.

WoW basically just gave the magic item drops (in the open world) to any number of mobs.  Why can't you do that with EQN?  Because EQ had named mobs 14 years ago that dropped the best loot?

Why not have certain (again many different, but in different dungeons or areas) mobs drop the crafting materials required to make the best gear available to you at a certain level?

Why not walk up to a blacksmith NPC and say "I don't have much gold, but I am an tough adventurer, is there some service I can perform for you for a new sword?"

These are all game mechanics that are already in use.
