Completely agree. I think we'll all experience the world differently if left largely to our own devices - it's nice to get lost exploring the vistas, or searching for an undiscovered poi... I can get locked and loaded on a specified path so easily. I'm already at Level 9 - and I've *just* started my personal quest. I spent the first 8.5 levels exploring, joining events and getting (happily) lost while trying to discover just one more spot... :-D
Jeepers. Strangely hostile commenters. Great review. Keep up the excellent work :-)
Excellent post. Tyria is gorgeous and interactive. After finding a Vista in Divinity's Reach, I was able to jump down to a rooftop - I then amused myself mightily by running and jumping from rooftop to rooftop. Can't remember a time in an MMO I've been able to do anything similar. While it can be hard to let go of the 'Wow mindset," it most definitely proves worth it.
