    LF a new MMO to play

    that's Free to play, (cash shops are fine) and not browser-based (eg. Runescape)


    As for a reason why.... I just lost my interest in WoW (Have 5/5 wrathful) so i really have nothing to.. work for anymore in there.

    Suggestions are much appreciated

    D&D online is free from what I understand.

    And I hear it's the #1 'fallback' mmo.

    I've played many free to play MMOs and at present I don't believe any of them can offer the level of quality and detail you may have become accustomed to. However, there's some really nice ones out there, and depending on your taste you probably can find a game you'll enjoy:

    Rappelz, Fly For Free, Corum Online - www.gpotato.com
    Fiesta Online, Secrets of the Solstice - www.outspark.com
    Dungeons and Dragons Online - http://www.ddo.com

    Those are just examples. The acronym MMO is being attached to pretty much any game that offers online play at the moment. It's an incredibly misappropriated term so prepare to go looking through loads of crap before finding a proverbial 'diamond in the rough'. Lots of Korean games, so if that's not your thing you're already limited in your choice. I'd say check out the link below and invest a bit of time, because an alternative to WoW is hard to find. It's definitely the leader in its genre.

    I personally love DDO, it's a great getaway and the quality of the game is very good. You can tell that the developers were committed and driven. What's especially good about it is that (as OP stated) a lot of people taking a break from WoW or other games see it as a haven where they can go to get away from the guild / community / OMGNERF messages / etc. DDO is a great alternative although I would recommend EvE Online if you like killing so-called b*tches :P

    My personal preference: http://play.eveonline.com/en/home.aspx

    Hope this helped, enjoy!

    If you wanted skill-based PvP, why didn't you start playing DotA?

    I agree with this man. Eve is fantastic.

    I've tried DDO, and i really don't understand how people can play it, it just seems rather cluttered and everything.

    on the other hand, Eve looks pretty awesome, thanks for that

    There's a Stereotype that free-to-play browser based MMORPG's are just fail. Why? Because they usually are. But there are a few games who are actually fun. But I think they've been stated already.

    I suggest Perfect World. I played it about two years ago and the community was lovely, but the game lacked content, so I quit. Picked it up again recently (the international client) and have been enjoying it, though the community is worse since there's a lot more Americans now.

    I'm sorry, but it's true. American-based communities are the WORST.

    EDIT: If you're looking for something 'better' than WoW, you won't find it. That's all there is too it. WoW is currently the pinnacle of MMOs.
