Just out of interest, how much of the design was influenced by the Iron Kingdoms? I love that design style and I'm glad to see more people using it.
@Shoop: Horses for courses. Some people like WoW, some like ToR, some will like this. I personally like the art style of this game a lot which is making me look at it. I didn't like anything about Aion so I didn't pay attention to it.
