So this game has been confused, maybe I wasn't in the right mind set or focused but I went through all the races till about lvl 5ish (quite low so my exp is based here) and tried all the classes except necro (never been a fan of floating squids) I found the Asura quite fun and refreshing, the Sylvari didnt really do much for me (maybe the look and feel), Humans had the general 'fable' feel, tried the noble route and the innkeeper route and I liked the story style to it, the Charr, I never really got into their animation style and they moved a bit too slow for 4 legged runners. The Norn was quite funky, with their viking vibe, even made a Mr T character.
As for classes, Elementalist was cool, had some epic destruction from the sky, just the Air (lightning) side was lacking punch for me and the water one was more ice. The warrior was nice as you can literally just smack things and laugh but I found bosses tend to one shot me as I couldn't see when they were gonna hit. Overall I played but felt like I've done this before in another game somewhere, sure there lots of cool events which is fun and the underwater stuff is refreshing but in the end I felt like I've played this game before. Maybe the fantasy genre has killed me a bit, just know its not wow or rift, which is great. Yet all in all it seems like a great game, art style, combat, levelling system and mmo elements. Just it didnt grab me, didnt want me to be curious like other games have done, no waking up and diving into the game trying to savour every last drop. It just felt okay. Anyway this is all my opinion and im sure others will disagree with me, but this is the exp I got.
