I payed for the founders pack (another$200 thrown out the window)
Lots of bugs
They say that youre quests and solo dungeons can be solo'd (bring a companion) but you better max out on healing potions and have lots of injury kits (that's what they dont tell you).

After about 40'sh level the solo dungeon designers seem to have lost the plot.. Solo dungeons start costing you more to go through than they reward you. And these are quest chain dungeons i'm talking about, they are solo intended and you need to finish them to progress your class development.

 

I play  trickster rogue im currently 59th level and have to say the so called solo quests and dungeons are the hardest I have ever encountered in my history of gaming. I feel there designed for the fully gimped players and they seem to ignore the fact that a lot of players are casual.

One SOLO dungeon I just finished I needed 6 injury kits and used about 50 healing potions to finish (you use an injury kit to recover from dying).

There are minions in there and out side doing normal quests that move faster than you and generally hit harder than you, they run in packs of 3 to 5 and can shred you in about 5 seconds. There are mini bosses that pound you for over 1/2 you health in a hit and they group with the minions, AND THEY EXPECT YOU TO SOLO THESE !!!

If your not a mechanics gamer then leave this one alone.. you will get sucked in to spend real money on over priced items and stuff. 

Yes they have regular events, too bad when you do them you find that your time spent on them was wasted as they never registered your achievement's and so you get no rewards for it.

Foundry's' nice, there player created quests but there limited in what they can create and some are bugged badly (due to the creation software).

I don't know what there problem is but until they balance there development quests and dungeons (solo) don't waste your time on this.

 

FYI.. Ive played- ultima online, starwars galaxies, swtor, WoW, rift, runescape, conan, warhammer online, guildwars, anarchy online to name a few, there are many more....
