No kidding. Takes ten minutes just to get from one end to the other. Feels absolutely cavernous without anyone walking around in there. A few people around the forges in the Great Forge and one or two that joined me fishing in the Forlorn Cavern. And then you realise they are dozens of rooms off of each of the main halls. Would take a day to fully explore IF.

The game is pretty fun so far but I hope the fun wears off before retail. I find that I get bored of mmog's within about a month or so of release and this time decreases with each passing mmog that I try.

Now, if they implement a PvP RP server then I'll play for sure. I have no desire to join the 'kiddies' in a regular PvP server but really don't want to play a regular PvE server either.

eBay them quick. When I quit DiabloII I sold all my good stuff for real money. Made more than I bought the game for. So that was nearly two years of entertainment essentially free.

The only thing keeping me from getting excited about WoW is the monthly fee. A couple bucks would be cool, but $15 a month? Plus you have to buy the game? That's kinda steep

I have two pretty godly Diablo 2 accounts that I'm ebaying right now just so I can finance WoW..

I've been playing for a few days now. I can totally agree, I can see this game lasting for more than 20 years, it's the new drug that's for sure. Ouch, second time I get shocked while typing.
