LotN, Define 'grind'

did you mean killing NPCs to level

or

did you mean anything boring, which would be more user defined

Also what is that new avatar you have there Witch King, its familiar to me but I can't recall why.

I don't mind killing NPCs as long as I can do it quickly and not for very long.

My definition of a grind is being forced to do something repeatedly over long periods of time to level. Worthless missions that involve travelling large distances for the bare minimum of xp, quests that involving killing a hundred of this and that for enough xp to make you think it wasn't a waste.

I like being able to choose different things, or if there has to be a grind at least make me interested in it. Its The Old Republic that really has my attention.

there are multiple ways to level, you can PVP which is slow, you can dungeon crawl, which is farily fast aslong as your not severely outleveling the dungeon, you can rift hunt which some say get repetitive after a while, or you can quest level which works out to a fairly decent leveling speed, ill leave it as this: in the couple weeks ive been playing, I have a level 32 (out of 50) and have gotten 4 or 5 toons to 20 before remaking them for one reason or another.

Like i said its very similar to WOW in terms of all mechanics with few different things. It could be said as clone of WOW cause of that.

I played over 30 different MMO games in over 10 years time and there are few exceptions over the years where devs made game special. (even when it wasnt that good)

- Ultima Online, hardcore game, pvp
- Everquest, first real raiding game
- Planetside, best mmo shooter, 3 sides
- WW2 online, best simulation of ww2
- Darkfall, lots of interesting mechanics, pvp, economics
- Eve online, best Space mmo, pvp, economics, 1 server
- Star Wars Galaxies (pre-CU, pre-NGE), best immersion, best crafting, economics, best class system
- Dark age of Camelot, pvp with 3 sides, different classes on each side

i might have missed few but point is that those are definately not WOW-clones where Rift is. To point out WOW clone it needs to have levels, instanced battlegrounds, non-destroyable equipment, no looting of enemies, simple economics, end-game raiding or pvp battlegrounds etc.

WOW brought MMO games to wide audience and polished and made game accessible to all players. World design in WOW was great and levelling experience (first time), but it too cut corners on many different things that made earlier games so great. Those earlier games were more social, death had more meaning and overall whole community was wayyyy much better than nowadays is.

Rift has some interesting things which might spark interest of those players bored to WOW, but i strongly suggest to just try some other games outside this formula.
