    It's not even that. There are several vanilla WoW developers here, and it shows in the overall earlygame presentation. It all just feels very hollow in comparison to something like, say, FFXIV:ARR's questing. There, you have decent writing to help offset the samey-quests, bears will always drop their asses, and when it's a "Kill X amount of Y" quest, it's typically a rather small amount(Unless we're talking endgame content, at which point I shut off my brain and started drinking.).

    The first twenty levels are the most important for player retention, hence why WoW allows free play up until level 20. If you haven't hooked somebody by then, you probably won't. Telling them "It gets good at level X" is a sign that something isn't working and should be fixed.

    Don't have to tell me. I'm all in. It's just getting my old gaming buddies to break from their LoL habit that's next to impossible.

    @Lefos I enjoy the early content of this game. I'm a goofball that digs their humor though and the randomness of the special events and the Explorer only paths are seemingly designed to send a gamer of my taste into massive ADD seizures. But seemingly I'm in the minority on that. At least based on opinion on these forums.

    Yeah.. I played a little bit in the closed beta but didn't get very far, it was pretty boring. Maybe they'll do something about the early levels.. I'll just wait and see what happens.

    Come and stop by sometime, I stream mainly JRPGs, WRPGs, Shooters, Horror, MMOs, and MOBAs. Currently, the focus is on JRPGs with a mixed bag of everything else.

    I'm really enjoying this game so far to be honest, my highest level character is 15.

    I'm going to save going beyond Level 15 for the full release

    Pretty sure "Open Beta" Characters will all be wiped, since they are all from closed beta / alpha as well.

    Apparently, I'm not the only one that is having patching problems. I'm at work right now but all day yesterday, I couldn't patch my client, so I missed my daily log-in for my boom boxes. Anyone else having patching issues?

    I canceled my pre-order actually, and uninstalled. I prefer FFXIV and a television over Wildstar.

    No. One. Cares. This is a Wildstar thread, and the guy was asking a Wildstar question. Get off the thread if you don't want to to contribute.
