Combat is very fun and exciting. (like Tera just not as annoyingly precise). they could add a couple more skills on your hotbar imo.

I love the armor/weapon style, not over-the-top like WoW/GW2. 

The foundry is very fun, but lacks a lot of options thus limiting your creativity. added in the future hopefully.

PvP combat is great, BUT! incredibly imbalanced and missing a lot of crucial mechanics such as diminishing returns. rogues often instakill people, wizards often perma-stun you to death, and poor GWFs make you feel sorry for them. not to mention whoever has the $$-mount has a huge advantage.

Questing is such a drag! very boring and irritating. back and forth, back and forth. too much running. gw2 spoiled me. 

lvl60 dungeons are a mess. agro is broken, healers unwillingly tank and tanks are not wanted. no tactics, or roles that work.

The amount of different currencies is also insane.

The world feels very limited/limiting.

And of course, many-many-many-way-too-many annoying bugs. hopefully fixed.

Just a heads-up, the shop is a lot more expensive than your average mmo shop. 

And don't kid yourself, though it is not "p2w" technically, it IS practically.

 

 

(fyi, mmo's i've played: WoW, WAR<3, Aion, SWTOR, Tera, GW2, AoW, NWO)
