I play this game once about 6 months or so. The core of the game--the combat and level design--is amazing, but the questing is far too repetitive. At least it's not pay to win, at least not from what I've seen so far, and my character is about mid to low level.
As I said before, while this game is a huge grind as an mmo--expect to do the same dungeons at least 10 times each at some points--the combat is where it shines. It's very fast-paced and tight, and while there are a plethora of action mmos populating the market, I always come back to this game because there's nothing quite like it. In my eyes, it's perfect. I enjoy how difficult the combat in this game is, too, even in PvE, and especially if you choose a class that's combo-reliant and fragile like Slayer or Shadow. And there are 21 unique classes with unique playstyles, and they release a new class every few months.
If you like action mmos and don't mind that C9 is instance-based, I'd recommend giving this game a try, at least until level 15 when you choose your class. You might be able to tolerate the grind more than I have.
