Ok, so this is my first review so bear with me on this.
-The idea that the creators were going for in this game was something I've always wanted see happen, taming and fighting alongside dragons is amazing.
-The combat system in this game is pretty good.
-The graphics are great if your computer can handle them.
-The comunity is generally pretty chill.
-Skills are unique.
-Models are nicely done for the most part.
-Leveling isn't overly difficult if you do all your sidequests, but you will need to grind for some of them.
-Character customization is pretty decent.
-You can buy almost anything from the market place without having to actually play if you play enough.
-The game also has its downsides as well, the PvP system is hard to even consider good.
-The game is basically PvE oriented.
-If you're not in a large guild good luck getting a party together for raid dungeons.
-The population of this game is tiny compared to other MMO's
-There's bugs galore for a lot of things but they get fixed within the next patch.
-Reskinned models everywhere.
-Renamed armor pieces await you around every corner.
-There is a slight pay to win factor in the game but that's expected of any SOE game.
-You can only solo play for so long.
-The Patch Notes are translated horribly (Runewaker is stationed in Taiwan so all the patch notes are translated to english)
-The first 2 beginning zones are no longer open.
Overall, this game has its ups and downs but I enjoy playing it and I don't regret putting all this time into it.
I'd give it a 7.9/10
