Never played this game before. I'm currently burned out of WoW, waiting for Dragonflight release.

Is NW worth getting into, and try out for a few months?

As techie said - I too did about 70ish hours and I stopped completely. The graphics are amazing for an MMO, the solo missions and dungeons were cool and so was the crafting.

But the quests were all over the place(literally).
Go grab a mission here, run all the way to another area, do the quest. Come all the way back, finish quest. Then next quest in the line is where you were beforehand. The game has a lot of potential but it tends to eat up your time running around to different areas when they could have compiled quest lines to fit the same area, not throw you in a massive circle to complete it. A to B to A to C to A to B, etc.. come on..

I'll pick it up again as I never did max level my toon, end game may be worth shooting for by now.


Side note -
I feel that so many people dropped this game over the course of the first two months that Amazon will probably abandon it within a year or two at most. Thoughts?

I may need to jump back into NW. I am not an MMORPG guy but ended up getting this game the day it came out. I thoroughly enjoyed it to the tune of almost 400 hours but I haven't played it since February. There have been several large updates since then. I still haven't done any of the end-game content/quests. Even what was there when the game first came out. I still have plenty to do.

For only $40 and no monthly subscription, it's worth checking out.

Also, there was recently yet another server merge so I have no idea what server I am even in, lol.

I don't know; Amazon doesn't appear to abandon things the same way that Google or EA does. They did lose a huge amount of players though.

I made it to the "Level 30 dropoff" where the lack of interesting activities and the grind becomes blatantly obvious and something like 90% of all players stopped playing.

Amazon has killed every non-mobile AAA game they have developed so far except for this one. Lost Ark was only published by Amazon Games in the west, so that doesn't count. They had nothing to do with its development. So they have killed 6 out of the 7 games they have developed or tried to develop in the six years since they started this endeavor.

Were those games actually released though? The only ones I'm aware of were cancelled early before they were open to everyone.

The Grand Tour Game had a retail release. Breakaway had several open alpha periods. Crucible was actually fully released before Amazon quickly pulled it back into closed beta after reception to the game.
