Well I went out and bought this today as I have a major hangover. I haven't played a MMORPG properly for a while, not many really appealed to me after 2 years of playing EQ obssessively (I weaned myself off that around 2 years ago). No first impressions yet, as in true MMORPG start up style, I have encountered one game stopping bug (resolved by support fortunately) and registration was down for a while, patching took a little while and now the server is down due to patch problems. LOL....... long have I forgotten the problems associated with these games. Fortunately, the manual is a hefty read so I am gonna go sit down with a drink (non-alcoholic) and try again later. Will update with my thoughts later on!
