Action, Hack and Slay, Grinder
« on: December 11, 2011, 12:42:39 PM »
Hey guys, I wanna try out a mmorpg! The only I ever really played was Ragnarok Online and I want something similar to that but... newer.

So the things it needs to have:
- Not a lot of Quests needed, just grinding.
- No WASD controls, mouseclick movement.
- No BIG parties required. I don't have time to wait for 20 people to get online for a boss. Bosses should be killable by <5 people.
- Leveling should be effectivly possible solo or 2-3 player parties.

Any games like that out there? Endgame content like pvp etc needs to be there too, but those above are the main requirements for me.

Honestly, MMOs don't sound like your thing- I think you'd like dungeon crawlers like Torchlight or the upcoming Diablo III a lot more, based on your description.

Dragon Nest would probably be the closest thing to that you are going to find in a mmo.

Yeah, I will love Diablo III, but I can't wait anymore! :D

Dragon Nests looks cool, but the WASD controls kinda turn me off.

Yeah, I'd say try Torchlight.  The quests are optional, and they're all things like "kill this dude," so you'd do them anyway, and you can let the quest giver know when you're back in town to sell loot or whatever.  Heck, you could just send your pet back to town to sell loot if you want.  It's out on XBLA and PC. There's even a demo on Steam, so you don't have to buy it to see if you like it.

You can set  DragonNest up to be used with a controller. Would not exactly recommend it, but it can be done.

This was the first F2P game that got me to spend cash on it.  The game is very straightforward with its grind, you will never get lost while questing, has an excellent soundtrack, and the dueling/consentual PVP is pretty common. 

Click to move or WADS, its up to you.  It's a good game.  It's been passed between publishers like crazy though.

Sounds like RF Online is your kind of game. Id say that the vast majority of free to play Korean MMOs would pretty much fill most of your requirements.
