    Default Looking for an open world exploratory experience.

    Hope you can help with some suggestions. I'm looking for an open world type of game with crafting, player housing and mounts would be nice.
    I'm not into player killing so a separate zone/server for pvp is a must.
    I have played Runescape for years until they changed the game. I've tried Everquest 2, LOTRO, Vanguard etc..
    Don't care for anime/WOW style graphics, not interested in P2W or cash shop heavy game. I'm more of a casual gamer and just need something to pop in for 20 minutes to skill or 4 hours to level when I have time. Thanks, hope that covers it.

    what didn't you like about Lotro or EQ2?
    Be warned - I am a major player of Regnum Online the mmo. I've been playing it for about 2 years and rarely go without logging in at least once a day. You can also look at good alternatives to Regnum such ase Aion online and Aika Online.

    How about The Secret World? It doesn't have crafting and mounts, but it's really great for open world exploration.

    The games you mentioned are honestly your best options. Only worse games come to mind like Perfect World.

    I was playing EQ2 when Sony was hacked and 6 weeks away from the game was a little too long. I found I couldn't get back into it again. The community in Runescape is fabulous, people are very friendly and helpful. It was the ideal game for a more casual playstyle. I'm currently trying LOTRO again and tried EQ2 again as well but the community just isn't there. Vanguard had that weird Diplomacy skill which was a little beyond me but was half the game apparently.
    Tried Cabal, AoC and a few others but felt like I was being led down the quest path. People are in such a rush to hit end game they run past me faster than I can say hi lol. Thank you for your timely responses, it's much appreciated.

    Have you ever tried Cabal, I believe that all of your features requested are all there.

    i dont think Cabal will meet his community requirements as he described above.

    the problem is, the nice casual slow play type of community he is after -- the best form of this exists in anime style games. all the other hard gritty western style mmos are all "get to max level fast" type of communities.

    so.. although this is anime style, both of these games have fairly good communities where i believe people do stop and chat: Mabinogi Online and.. Fly for Fun (fly for fun is a bit old so recheck on that community thing).
