Alchemy is one of the few interesting things to do which does not involve talking. Mix and match different ingredients into a boiling cauldron of hot water and bottle it up to create different potions with varying effects from speed buffs to deadly poisons. With many different combinations, this system will keep you busy for a while while you figure out all the different combinations. While the system is not too complicated – different potion power levels do not exist and combining effects is not allowed – it is still fun to dabble into and is something I would like to see in other games.
There is much to do though if you are willing to socialize with others and roleplay. The detailed models for each one of the classes brings out you inner roleplaying powers just by looking at it. I personally had some great fun while in this game. However, if you don't want to roleplay, you will find your time there quite boring and stale.
The Bottom Line:
Great buildings and character models establish environment well. Although a roleplaying mind is required.
