Default Dungeons and Dragons Online Oberron - Who's playing?

Well officially from last sunday, I am now officially in some kind of MMO other than Ragnarok Online , and this is all thanks to Zen and the other bunch of fools. SO...just curious, who's playing?

I am a lvl 6 Human Barbarian. (That comes to prove how hardcore Zen and the others are in playing DnD online Oberron)

I honestly have never heard of it. Is there a free trial or something I can do to test it out?

Eberron, not Oberron. Zenai also got me into it. How did you get to level 6 so fast? I've been playing a while and am almost level 3. I assume you play on Cannith. My character's name is Hannibull Barca.

It's a completely free game, although it is quite boring. But I'm gonna stick it out to at least the next area and see if it gets any better.

Well, ask Zen and the rest of the buddies. They tend to milk missions and grind like mad to get three things : Loot, XP, and Favor points. Most of us are already Lvl 6, with the exception of the leader, which is close to lvl 8.

The thing is that you need to finish all the missions on elite if possible to get the most exp, best loot and maximum favor points. Hence it is best that you go with a party that loves to suck all those three and soon enough you will be off to other places. Right now we are doing House Jorasco missions already. Thanks to those buggers, I find that the game is not so bad after all.

I did most of the starter mission on elite, and now I've moved on to the Stormreach area. Haven't done much there though. I suppose it does go a lot faster if you have a group grinding things. I've just been soloing for the most part. I don't know anyone in my time zone who plays though

It's a pretty standard fantasy MMO. This one is based on a lot of instances similar to GW. You don't get XP for killing mobs, instead you can run small dungeons multiple times. The combat is nothing special. The instances are at least very accessible and close by and they have difficulty settings so you can run the same dungeon multiple times and it gets harder each time.

The boringness comes because it really is just a WoW clone. There's nothing really exciting to do in it, and combat is just spamming the attack button because most things die too fast to bother using skills on them. It's an easy way to kill an hour or two at a time, but I don't see myself playing it for very long. There is no player economy, no crafting, and loot is usually only gotten from completing the dungeons.
