Deathwisper.

Might I also add the shadowing in the game is absolutely insane.

You can be standing on a cliff and if the ground is close enough to you, you can see your shadow on the ground move with you and also lighting from the sun is true.

ah ok, so its pretty much just a pretty wow clone?

*Edit* When i say wow clone i mean game mechanics wise. kind of like how all fps games were exactly the same with a different name a few years back... running down hallways and open courtyards and whatnot.

Its hardly a wow clone.

Wow is a clone of EQ2 and etc etc.

Mechanics are always borrowed but AoC puts a whole new light AND spin on these genre.

Yeah, the real time combat makes it MUCH more player skill based as well. Timing your attacks and direction of attack, and managing your combos.

I agree, coming from EQ2 I find AoC has two major advantages. 1) Graphics and the ability to use multi cores and such is a big selling feature for me and 2) The combat system makes it alot more fun compared to clicking spell hot keys and auto attacking like I was used to in eq.

Cptn Vortex, Im outta tortage finally, so we can join up and do some quests or something at some point. What class you using? Im guardian.
