While WoW had some cool terrain, much of it was inaccessible. In this game it seems you can climb on just about anything. It's so awesome for pvp. You can hide behind little rocks and trees to drink in between fights, come out from under water, etc. It's so fun to be an assassin !

I was running around a huge tree and waiting on top of roots coming out from this mountain. Notice the guardian saying "Where are you?" I took out at least 15 in this area in under 30 minutes, even against multiple enemies. You can take one out and jet while the other is still sapped, hide behind or climb up some awesome terrain and come back for the other. It's so ******* fun.

Excellent job on the map design Trion, it's really immersive.

Anyone else used to terrain in this game to their advantage?

I love being able to wander around climbing mountains and such. The Cairns and artifacts are also a great incentive for doing so :).

I love exploring out of the way places, too. Some areas are really beautiful.

Not only is the terrain awesome, I agree with you, the sound is incredible. I was in that burning city area for lvl 16's as a defiant(forget the name sorry) ...And the cries of villagers sounded like pure horror and real terror! I loved it!

I was instantly on alert and immersed in the story that was going on. It felt urgent to complete the assigned quests, because the sound and design of the area motivated me to become part of the story.

Fantastic!
