By far the best blending of D&D 3.5 rules with an MMO feel. While it may take some getting used to, once you grasp the basics, it'll click quite nicely.
This is set in the Eberron world for the most part, not the Forgotten Realms of major fame but don't let that stop you. The Eberron setting is unique and a lot of fun.
There are several classes available for you to select right from the start, and your four "basic" D&D races, Humans, Dwarves, Elves and Halflings. And while each race does have a certain feel and flavor about them, as with proper D&D, you are free to combine whatever class you can with whatever race you can.
That said, there are some classes and races that can only be unlocked via Cash Shop. Or you can get a subscription. Due note, not all classes are unlocked with a subscription, and they are unlocked only for the subscription. Best to just buy them outright.
Yes, there's a lot of slow going for this game, you don't just rush to the end. But when you do get there, you can "reset" your character, causing them to be revived at low level, but with an extra stat points on your build, which lets you make an even more powerful character.
If you're looking for a D&D game that'll get you hip-deep in the mechancis of it, this is the game for you. If you're looking for something more MMO and modern, look into Neverwinter, which is based on the 4th edition rules.
