Well i tried Spellborn.....the characters look hokey and stupid,the armor/clothes selection is awesome,the interface sucks eggs and i stopped playing in less then 20 minutes.
I did like the diffrent choices in how your toon could look...fat,normal,and toned...too bad your feet look ENORMOUS.
So far Runes Of Magic has the most amazing character creation/customization ive ever seen,but it doesnt have the armor/clothes choices and the interface is horrendous.
Shaiya would be the BEST game of all if it had the following.
1)the character creation of Runes of Magic+the skintone/muscletone choices of Spellborn
2)the armor/clothing choices of Spellborn.
3) the option to change your armor/clothing appearance anytime you want.
Lets face it...99% of all people want their toon to look unique from everyone elses.
So far I love Shaiya...but listen to me and it will be even better lol....and I wont even charge a fee lol.
The bottom line is WE the players ARE the game.
Without us the game cant exist,so these game designers really dont have much choice but to listen to us and try to give us what we ask for...it all depends on how succesful they want their game to be.
