New World has potential to be something special, no question about it. Currently, though, it’s a little bit “bare boned” – not unusual for new MMO’s.
Lots of good ideas here. What I feel this game needs more than anything, is another progression system in terms of specializing/customizing your character. Sure, you can allocate a few attribute points, chose between a few skills and gear slots, but I miss a “deeper” system, that sperates your character from other characters using the same skills as you. The only thing seperating my Great Axe character from other people’s Great Axe character is the minor difference in attribute points allocation, which to be fair isn’t all that “much”.
