What do you all think?

Personally I got bored with the constant grind to get gear that half the server already had, that I knew would be replaced with a future patch. I lost interest once I realised that.

I would love to know what MMO you played that required no lvl or gear grinding of any type.

I dont think its the level grinding or gear grinding thats the issue... I think its the way it feels to obtain gear, and levels...

I mean before dungeons were a thing, there were.... FATES... Why cant killing difficult mobs in a group be rewarding too?? Oh right... those only exist in fates... The game is quite limited.

are you talking about fate grinding? yeah, much better than dungeon grinding. killing the same "difficult mob" over and over and over again.

but we have odin and behemoth for that
