      I’m a Legacy member, even though I don’t play the game these days. I do still keep my account active each month.

      I haven’t really played it since earlier in the year. Hoping that this new version of the game can bring me back.

      As for the trailer, it is pretty nice. The Male Miqo’te at the end was new, some of the attacks were kinda new, and some of those zones were redesigns. The limit break meteor thing was also new at the end. The Dragon was also a new monster, but most everything else is already in the current game.

    Looks good, which is no surprise, but the fighting system seems to be the usual WoW clone.
    And I’m not saying WoW was the first to do this, but they are the standards now regarding MMORPGs.
    A fighting system à la Vindictus would be cooler!

      Even that is starting to get overused. Dragon’s Nest, Terra, Darkblood, more and more MMOs are adopting the action oriented style. Which is a good thing at first, but soon we will be as bored of them as we are of WoW style.

     The outfit that the one Summoner bro is wearing in that concept art is bad ass. It reminds me of unlocking that job in Final Fantasy XI. All I had was Carbuncle and I absolutely sucked at the job, but that didn’t matter. I still thought I was hot shit. ;D

    At the very least it “looks” great. Can’t say much for gameplay but the presentation is nice.

    Can i ask for a offline game mode with story and free loots. Gameplay’s offline mode can be about 15-20 hours. And this game will sale good.
