It's hard to explain what is so enjoyable about this game. Whilst the map feels vastly underpopulated and it is obvious from the design of the surroundings that this was intended to be a MMORPG, I think that adds a certain charm. Feeling tiny in a world so huge is part of the experience.
It did take me a while to get fully into the lore, and I wouldn't say I'm quite there yet, but you can certainly play the game without understanding the fuss about these 'Fae' or why everyone argues over this 'Mitharu' fellow.
The DLCs are absolutely fantastic and expand what is already a vast, multi-faceted world. The creativity behind this game is evident in every last corner.
Though the character customisation is limited, that is probably a good thing, as I like to spend hours upon hours getting my hero's eyebrows JUST RIGHT.
It's also worth mentioning that the customisation extends into gameplay; the class system is, in my opinion, without fault. It's user-friendly, it enables users to play whatever combination of skillsets they choose, and it has a system of specialisation that other RPGs, I felt, were missing.
All in all, buy the game. Just buy it. Now.
