MMO with Great PvP and alot of PvE actions (Storyline with LESS grindfest)
Yet currently waiting for Wildstar to come out and kinda stuck on D3:ROS/Allods Online (33 Engie stuck due to grindfest) ... so which mmo's would keep me busy till Wildstar launches and please no Cash shop (HATE HATE spending $$ and have done it with few mmo's like SWTOR, Maplestory (over $500), TSW
Any more help looking into Tera again and maybe C9 aswell ...
honestly the game in your sig there meets all of your descriptions and you will NOT find a more active, polished, up to date english game right now. ANY game you DO find that is out already that comes close to your requirements will fall short of gw2.
- No cash shop affecting play? gw2
- great pvp? don't know any mmos that is more competitive than gw2...i mean the tried to make it an esport
- no grindfest? gw2
- solid pve? gw2
- solid story? gw2
- end game gear obtainable? don't know an mmo that's easier to obtain than gw2
Neverwinter - like the system but still same grindfest game (bores me fast)
Tera - Hello Grindfest MMO .... DCUO - Rude people kicking crappy geared players at near end game levels ....
DCUO - You'll just keep wiping with them. Honestly though, it's usually the tanks fault and the dps not knowing how to clip.
FFXIV might fit you, I hate FFXIV because it was a polished generic mmo, I barely could hit max because I'm so done with tab-target.
TERA - Since when was TERA a grind fest? You sir need to play WAKFU
You can wait for B&S for another couple of years or go with Wildstar
