Ok, I am in fucking LOVE with this patch. There's way too much shit to do now. I think I spent an hour just decorating my studio apartment in this incredibly HUGE residential districts. I came back on my 51 Gladiator and had a content orgasm. They've fixed all the fucking grindy coin quests - making repeatable quests into daily quests with guaranteed mob drops. They also lowered the hell out of the cost of coin rewards and allow you to choose your gear. There's like 4 new factions with quests, a new crafting faction, changed the entry req. on almost every dungeon, made a low level, mid level and high level daily SOLO dungeon for all us loners. The upgraded engine is pretty boss too. The also made the Abyss Gear way less uber - so you can't get rick-rolled quite as badly in PvP (buffs only defense, not damage now). I mean, the game is old and has its issues, but for a F2P, it doesn't get any better than this.
edit - the leveling grind is soooooooooo much better now. i'm getting like 2 million xp a quest now. /dies.
