    Default Looking for a MMO

    Hi, I am looking for the following in an MMORPG

    - Good Ranger/Hunter/Bow class ( in PvE) and can hold it's own in PvP. A good example of what I am NOT looking for is Fiesta Online or GW2.

    - Decent/Good Graphics ( Decent = Asda 2, Good = Aion )

    - English Community ( Nothing like Cloud 9 and Fiesta Legel Server )

    - Good Population ( Nothing where the last forum post was 5 days ago, or there are less than 500 ( heck I would even say 1000 ) playing )

    - Non Cash Shop based. Let me define this. I basically mean Pay to Win ( Fiesta Online, Aion etc )but also mean if they dish out tired spenders every weekend, charge 30 dollars for a single outfit etc etc ( Eden Eternal I am looking at you )

    - Decent/Good Hair Style Customization.

    - Good Selection of Costumes ingame or in the item mall. I don't mind shoving out 15 bucks for a costume.

    - If not the above, decent looking gear. GW2 would be an example of what I am NOT looking for.

    While it has good customization, rangers are not up to par with other classes. On top of this the cash shop costumes are one time use skins. So Aion isn't for me.

    I'd disagree that ranger class is not up to part with other classes. Ranger is one of the most popular PVP classes in Aion because it's pretty good in solo PVP. Also you don't need skins from the cash shop. There are plenty of good looking ingame armours.

    The issue is all the ingame "armors" to me seem lacking to say the least. Only 1-2 sets even look remotely decent, and EVERYONE is wearing those same 1-2 sets. Also I am talking from a PVE point of view, not a PVP one, as I don't like PVP, all PVP turns into is who has the biggest wallet.

    You can transfer the looks of one armour to another one in Aion. If you want to look different, buy one of the low level armours and use their skin. :-)

    What? Sorry I just had to stop here. Aion Rangers are by far the most Over-Powered of all of them, give or take the assassin. Aion also, is not Pay 2 win, it's just Pay 2 get there faster. I've played since 1.5, but quit a few months ago.

    EDIT: I used to play this one game that had a really really good ranger class, although it was 2.5D and character customization was limited, although it looked nice. I played this back in 2008 though, not sure if it's still around but I could try to find it if you like.

    Not trying to start an argument on Aion, but you should check the current cash shop out. Skins people spend 10's of hours farming to get, in the cash shop. Items that essentially GIVE you levels, enhancement dependent on the cash shop.

    Also, as I said, I am talking a PvE standpoint, not a PvP one. PvP is IMPOSSIBLE to completely balance, as you have to take into account gears,cash shop,class etc.

    And unfortantly I am not looking for a 2.5dmmorpg or a 2d sidescroller.

    Yeah, but it's not really "Pay 2 win" anything that gives an advantage in the shop you can earn in-game, it's just difficult. Either way, I don't want to turn your thread into an argument topic.

    ----

    I'm also looking for something to play, because I'm tired of my current games. If you find something your willing to try out shoot me a PM, because I'm interested in almost anything at this point. You can check my thread to see the games I've tried and look at them if any sound interesting.

    Good rager community? I'd say Heroes of Newerth has lots of ragers. So does League of Legends

    You could also try Guild Wars 2, Dragon Nest, or TERA.
