Well atm I only get to play on the weekends (I work out of town), so I have only got my Bard to level 32. Being Archer 32, Pugilist 16 & Leatherworker 17.
I love the content so far, but am having a hard time finding a party to get through Brayflox. Seems the tanks I always get from the df are under geared (i blame fate grinders for this), causing the mage to get in a bind and the whole thing snowballs. Oh well, this weekend is another chance.
Starting to really enjoy the crafting side of the game. Though the cost of materials is starting to become prohibitive, and I have yet to reach a high enough level for my craft to become profitable. I am able to sell certain items for profit at this point, mostly to DoL. It leaves me with a small worry about the long term health of the ingame economy. It seems that there may be more gil sinks at the higher levels than there are sources of income, but I will wait and watch before pushing the panic button.
I'm really impressed with the way SE responded to 1017 problem. Wow, the nerd rage was palpable across the internets. Since the additional servers/maintenance from last week I have had no problems logging in, even at peak time. So as long as they continue to support the game in this fashion, I will probably be a customer.
Overall, the entire experience has been very positive for me. I most qualify this by adding that this my first MMO, so I have no basis for comparison. The gamer in me that loves RPG's is completely stoked over this game. So much to do. Anytime I get bored at something, I just change what I am holding (love that part)
How are you doing? I would bet that you are already doing end game content.
