When I finally managed to get onto the server it was midnight and I stayed online till 4AM. So I guess I liked the game.
It surely feels different but not bad at all. I don't miss the option to spend points on abilities, why should I? People tried to min-max their settings and that was the only interesting part about it.
But what I'd really appreciate would be the option to quickly switch between 2 different weapon or skill sets. No idea why I should be forced to open the skill menu and pick a suiting alternative skill in the middle of the battle. I want to have a set ready for general mobs and one for the bossfights.
