I don't get it. The whole its "grindy". Its a *cricket* MMO? I mean from what I've seen (I know its not final patch so more grind will come) this is the least grind compared to most MMOs. Not to mention that PvE stats doesnt matter in PvP. U dont need grind weeks-month for set just to be able to fight people in arena (like WoW, Lineage2). Yes u do need to level for those skill points unlike lets say Guild Wars 2, but if u enjoy the class, the game itself I dont see a problem. In my honest opinion "reviews" like these are quite shameful and to be taken as some rant.
Thats just my tw
