If you can't kill it, don't make it mad.

I'm glad to see that its making a come back. I was one of those poor damned souls who suffered for months and months through all of the various "issues" at launch. ^^  If I remember right I had a high 80's low 90's warrior type, with some cleric and mage abilities thrown in.  Interesting game(I was there and helped guard the builders as they created the first tunnels). Its always seemed to be one of the best crafting games I've seen so far. But the combat system was rather primitive and bug prone at the time.  Any way, to make a long story short I eventually left. I went back last december, but the graphics are so dated and the world seems so empty that I left again after my month expired. I wish all of you the very best though.

There have been many new features and content being worked on.  A patch was recently released that contains many new features.  Why not try the unlimited free to play feature and check out the tier 2 improvements and do a little more exploring?  This game is definitely heading back in the right direction, true there is a long way to go but there are some positive things happening.

 I just signed up the other day and already I am enjoying it. I went Cleric and the lizard like race. Having a blast thus far! The other players seem nice and even though the quests are tedious (Lots of wasted running! Hope it changes at higher levels) They are fun. In a time I found myself to be completely burnt out on the "new" generation of MMO's this is a great throwback to hold my attention for a while! :)

I just came back after almost 5 years away from Istaria.  I loved the game when I played it right after it came out, but got to where the monthly fee was to much to handle and not worth the amount of time I had to play.  I only have the time to play a couple hours a day 1-2 days a week and the fee was not worth the time I could put in.  The free human account is what I play now the only down side is now I can not have a plot which is disapointing but it is what it is.  I play a monk at the moment and will go flame once I am at the lvl to get it.  I love the game and like that it takes time to lvl up crafting and adventure classes and that you can multi class in both.  I look forward to getting back in the game and getting my Monk back to what he use to be.

Same here just checked out the human F2P aspect,and loved creating a scout after donkeys years may even sub later just have some beta's in the pipeline but would say anybody wanting game play over graphics to take a look as this could be the future gameplan for many Mo's as LOTRO is going hybrid F2P i expect STO and the other big hitters to do the same,I wonder if SWTOR is makeing companies nervous?.

I loved Horizons back in the day, only stopped when the servers came down. Love what they have done.
