    ... want the devs to fix / implement before release?

    My choice would be satisfying single player storyline which I can play completely offline without having to do MMO level grinding.

    What's yours? It can be anything... related to graphics, pvp, performance.... what's the one thing that is most important to you. it doesn't mean that it's the only thing, but if you could choose just one...

    A great story-experience with interesting, deep quests, full of twists und great adventures as well as choices that have visible and lasting consequences on the world and its inhabitants.

    I don't care for crafting or roleplaying. This leaves PVE adventuring/leveling (PvP is a bloody joke). Killing mobs in this game is so unsatisfying. I kill some creatures, they drop terrible loot that weighs a tonne and is worth little. I am forced to grind and grind and grind to save up enough gold to buy decent crafted items from player vendors. The PvE experience is so unsatisfying that I'd almost say it's intentional to force one to purchase crowns to sell for gold to buy crafted items in-game.

    My one thing: Make loot not utterly suck. I know they have a handful of uniques, but quite frankly- that isn't nearly good enough. What about regular items that drop with varying stats? This isn't 20 years ago (and even then- UO did an excellent job with making its loot system fun). Do something to make the killing mobs experience not an inane grind-fest.

    I want smooth, responsive combat with weight. Better combat animations.

    More intelligent AI for combat. Mobs work in groups, use group tactics, know when to flee toward reinforcements, spawn as reinforcements not straight out of thin air.

    With much stronger tactics, all tiers become harder giving skull 1 and 2 reasons to exist again. Therefore, increase xp and loot drops on mobs to compensate for additional difficulty (less grind).

    control points to pvp zones that become controlled by the guild that beats the wave and boss.

    or

    couple of towns/scenes that follow the same rules where winner of battle controls the scene and what ever that contains.

    No. This would be a violation of the promise of concensual PvP.

    yeah I could see that but I could make the argument that the teleport mages would full fill that role. just make the area around them safe.

    but I understand and agree with your point but would still like to see it in some form.

    Unclone scenes, fast, starting with the T2's and moving up. The "under construction, temporarily cloned" sign at the entrance of so many zones is a real mood killer. It's not what any new player should expect to see at release. I did a wander last night with that thought in mind and I suggest others do the same.

    There are lots of things I would personally like to see, but those can wait...the cloned scenes were/are an awful leveling up experience.

    Also on a side note, get any SOTA maps that are currently wrong due to zone rewrites taken down at least until there's a correct map. I get two because that one's not really a game change. :)

    Without asking for rapid travel over the whole world via runes, I would want the elimination of all control points so that you can travel across the overland to any point with just one scene load. Oh... and eliminate local banking.

    Performance. Too much stuttering in Multiplayer Online makes me almost impossible to play.

    Got better than before, but still needs a lot of work when it comes to group play.

    Performance. I don't want to see my husband crash numerous times a night just because he's on an older machine and someone has sparkly clothing on, plays music, or there's exageratedly much deco in a home. And I don't want to have scene loading screens that allow me to take the kids to bed or make a phone call while I'm waaaaiiiting... Actually I want no scene loading screens at all. Breaks my immersion.
