I really like the character creation. Both the mechanics, where you choose an archetype (class) and then a primary and a secondary power set (skill tree (which isn't really a tree)), and the appearance, where you can spend hours perfecting your outfit. Makes for a lot of diversity.
The respawn of some mobs is like an overcompensated opposite of EQ2 where you sometimes had to wait a long time for stuff to respawn.
I like the game so far, but I haven't even hit level 10, so my verdict may change
