      Horizontal character progression without power creep. Great mount system and friendly community. Lots of things to do, and old content is still relevant to this day. Could use a guide / recommendation for new players on what to do after reaching lvl 80. Nice Wiki implementation ( /wiki, use it well)

      It's amazing, not as good a game as Final Fantasy XI but the next best runner up is FFXIV.
