Lastly, it does enough to be unique but not to the point where it's unfamiliar. So people can fit right into the game. Everyone will also love the soul system and the Rift system.
I agree. This game is intuitive and even the help messages were clear and concise in the beta. Very simple, this is this, this is that. Go.
Although, Rifts can either be the most amazing feature or they can be the biggest flop. I loved them for leveling but I found myself, I know at a low level, throwing out a lot of the rewards they gave us. Yes some are just meant to be placeholders til you get awesome stuff but still. And the thrill can get kind of old after a while possibly. Hopefully the large scale invasions will keep the game going. They may change how MMO's are made from this point on if they work though.
I am hoping this game does not become just about the equipment like WoW has turned into for some people.
