What's the grindiest MMO?

Post by TheHidden01 on Tue Sep 22, 2015 2:00 pm


"Borrowed" from Massively, join in on the weekday discussions and let your opinions be heard!

Allow me to butcher a phrase: MMO grind is in the eye of the beholder. A few hundred architect entertainment missions in City of Heroes were a breeze to me but a monotonous grind to others. What was a simple matter of macros and a day of clicking for me felt like an impassable crafting grind to some of my Star Wars Galaxies guildmates. And in Ultima Online, the idea of leveling up animal taming or provocation or stealing again makes me want to, well, bust out my credit card for an advanced character and skip that crap, but legendary fishing? Iím on a boat. Skill level 120 baby, here I come!

As Iíve grown up and passed through MMOs, my tolerance for certain types of grind has truly diminished. Iím far more likely to grind for skills or experience nowadays than churn through raid or social experiences for overt loot grinds, for example, but then again, it depends on the loot too.

So whatís the grindiest ó and least grindiest ó MMO in your book?

Probably isn't a good example but I grinded hard in AoC for those last few levels, fuck it took long, like 12 hours a day.

most likely the korean port savage eden for NA or biosfears for EU since the max level was like i dunno 400 and it took several hours just to get a level from 250 to 251.
