This great little gem of a MMO - The Secret World (TSW) has gone B2P with NO sub.
Of course there's still the opportunity to subscribe in different ways, but if that's not your cup of tea, then it's totally FREE to play with NO restrictions!
AMAZON has the game on SALE right now for around $15 - normally it's more around $50-60 - so go get it if you feel like trying it out.
I think STEAM too has it on sale.
The playerbase are definitely more mature and the tone on the forums too.
So far we have been blessed with almost no trolls :)
It's VERY different from other MMO's - no classes etc.
You are just you, who can dress ANY WAY you like.
YOu start out in a training area, where you get to pick 2 different weapons.
These 2 you can actually use for the rest of the game if you like, lol
The skills you get from a wheel which contains different features for each kind of weapon.
SP points goes to add the amount of damage/healing/survival etc for each weapon.
AP goes to unlock different damage/healing/AOE effects for each weapon.
You get to add 7 active skills and 7 passive skills from the AP wheel.
The active skills HAS to be from whatever weapon you have equipped - the passives you can also pick from weapons you don't have equipped.
Eventually you'll have ALL skills for ALL weapons unlocked and can "respec" into whatever role/weapon you like.
Some weapons are clearly meant for healing, others more for tanking or DPS - but it's really all up to you, HOW you want to put it all together and play.
Really a new and refreshing look at an MMO.
Forgot the most important part.
Some of the missions(repeatable) they have are VERY adventure like.
