    Looking for a new game to kill my boredom.

    I think I want Dungeons&Dragons but that in a videogame form without it being turnbased.

    Something where I can create my own character, that doesn't have a linear story path and with lots of customization in combat skills, so you can keep finding new powerful items/skills/abilities/talents and other ways to get meaningful upgrades as you progress (not just +1% to damage).
    I'm hoping Diablo 4 will scratch some of that itch as Diablo 3 was a lot of fun in this aspect, but it got stale and there was only 1 story direction.
    Want something with a bit more sidequests and more diversity in settings (diablo is only dark, no lush forests or other more happy typical medieval fantasy settings (barring ponyland >.>))

    Does such a game exist?


    EDIT: not an MMO please. Prefer optionally co-op games that can be perfectly played singleplayer and I don't care about PvP at all

    I support this. ESO is a great MMO for console.

    I don't think there is a game out there that fits your specifications. You want two competing things: a story game with the emergent gameplay and possibilities of playing with other people, but without the other people. There are plenty of sandbox games with emergent gameplay, but you won't get the freeform story part. If you want the freeform story part that comes with playing with other people, you need to play a game with other people, be it D&D or a private server sandbox MMO like Ultima Online.

    Question Recommended mmorpg to play

    So I am in need of MMORPG but I cannot find one. I play tons already.
    Reason i stoped playing following mmo's:
    WoW - hate dragonriding
    FFXIV - i hate msq (plus it takes too long time) and most of scions of seven dawn.
    Guild Wars 2 - too flash animations. Cannot play it, my head hurts.
    Star Trek online - already got 3 tier 6 ships. No desire to play more.
    LOTRO - lag problems. Recent UI change. Not having the ability to hide the chat.
    DDO - do not get this game. Tried it many times.
    Old Republic - Level sync badly implemented.
    Lost Arc - Control setting when it comes to attack/ movement.

    Anyone has an idea if there any other good mmo for me to try?
    Cheers,
    Thanks,

    Try a bunch of free ones on Steam. If none of them catch your fancy, go back to playing what you were playing before this thread.

    Lol. That is the only reason ? sounds a bit silly imo. And its much better than normal flyin like thousand of times. Need some minor rework but still its great imo.

    Yes, because everything is built around it. Even some instances. I usually get out of stamina when i wanted to get to a specific mine node or herb or gather dragonriding point etc. I got pissed after one zone. Still manage to lvl to max lvl.

    I was playing single-player game since I haven't touched mmo in couple of months.
    Do you recommend any mmo?

    sounds like you just have to max out glyphs...
    and which instances are built around it? you can only use it in one, and even there you technicaly dont have to, there are flypoints...

    Generally easier to suggest games based off what you like and what your preferences are rather than what you don't like. Just FYI.

    So you didn't collect all the glyphs and unlock all the upgrades?

    You didn't give any specific details what you are looking for in gameplay.

    So I suggest you do as I said, "play some free ones on steam. If none work out, go back to doing what you were doing before."

    What do you like then? Whare are a few games you enjoy? We can suggest tons of other MMO's that aren't on that list, but without knowing what kind of game/MMO you enjoy we can't suggest anything helpful.

    >< OK. Have you gathered all glyphs ? Its a bit annoyin without but still shouldnt be an issue. And there is just one instance using it. Flyin around is just fun not hard. Still dont get ur point. It need like 15minutes to manage it.

    I didn't get all the glyphs if you asking me about that. I do not like the whole idea. The similar gw2 system didn't frustrate me as much.

    I like rpg's. I do not like games with tons of flashy animations. Also, I am not fond of shooters. I tried Neverwinter and left it because of the business model. From time to time I hear people mention Runescape. Is it any good?

    Unlocking all dragonriding glyphs in WoW is way easier and faster than it is to unlock full Griffon mastery in GW2. In WoW you acquire the dragon an hour into the Waking Shores story, and then you just open up a map on the internet and spend an hour flying around and then volia, you have all the glyphs.

    In GW2, you had to first beat the PoF expansion's storyline, and then you had the arduous task of unlocking the Griffon (hunting for all of those eggs, waiting random events and trying to complete them without help, the hefty 250 gold price tag, etc). Then, to fully unlock Griffon flying, you needed 12 mastery points, but you needed to spend 42 mastery points to even acquire the griffon in the first place (long raptor jump, tall springer jump, jackal's ability to jump through sand portals, skimmer height boost, etc), and there are only 59 mastery points in the base PoF expansion, and once you've exhausted the easy to get mastery points you're then faced with really difficult challenges. So there is a good chance you wouldn't be able to fully unlock griffon flying until you were into season 4's content and obtaining extra mastery points from there.

    Is there a moba where you can play with a team of 4 people? I don't care if the rest slots are filled by randoms that you find through a queue.
