I intend to get it next week - would you recommend it? What's the gameplay and options like for characters?

It's quite interesting, to say the least, and the PvP warfare is definitely cool. There are some factors that are very similiar to WOW, but then again, that's expected. Varied classes, and interesting factors within gameplay. Gimme some time, i'll tell yall how it's like.

Rightio :) It's not as cartoony though? And the fighting isn't as static as WoW is it?

There's a thread about WAR already: Here (http://www.astronomican.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8396&page=7).

Its definatly got a more realistic look than WAR.

However, the fighting is around the same level as WoWs. You press buttons to use different abilities. However, it does have collision detection and a good amount of spells can be cast while moving which makes it a bit less static than WoWs.

But, yeah, it uses pretty much the same system as WoW does for abilities.

The combat system is similar, but the actual gameplay is very different.

There's a lot more to do while leveling, and the whole PvP-focus is great.

Its kind of like WoW, but with better social aspects, constant, more enjoyable and overall better PvP and a lot less grinding instance dungeons to get the best gear.

There's nothing quite like doing keep seiges! And they havent even started properly on my server. When there's a lot of people at level 31-40 there will be massive keep seiges with heaps of people as the keeps there are huge and will need lots of people working together to take them.

And then you hit the capital city seige part of the game which will have hundreds of players going at it.
