Bishop. I was incredibly pumped to play it when I got in line. But it's extremely similar to WoW in style of play. I also really dislike WoW, but I didn't use that to make my opinion. It has a sketchy combat system, with random attack rates, and if you are an archer, good luck shooting arrows. It is really really hard to stay firing long range and switch to your sword and back if need be. There really wasn't an Equip function, just changing combat stances which was supposed to change your items, but rarely did.
For complete melee brawlers, it wasn't that bad. You just run up and click-click until you are dead or they are, with a couple selectable skills in there.
It really didn't look that great or thrill me with something new. Of course it wasn't the finished version(hopefully), so these things could change. I had a long talk about the issues with a guy working the booth. He was actually interested in relaying the information, so cross your fingers that my complaints paid off. Other than that, it seemed like a diablo 2/WoW mesh, with marginally better graphics.
Again, this was probably not the finished version, so let's all hope for better.
