The Daily Grind: Which MMO does the most with death mechanics?

We die so many times in MMOs that it’s lost all meaning. It’s merely a pause button, perhaps with a slight penalty attached, unless you skew to the more hardcore of the spectrum.

Yet I’m always fascinated with how MMORPGs can occasionally get creative with their death mechanics. Once in a while you’ll encounter a quest that actually requires you to perish and then complete from the afterlife. Personally, I love how The Secret World often tucks a lot of easter eggs away that are only revealed when you’re in the black-and-white anima realm.

Which MMO does the most with death mechanics? When has a game utilized death for creative purposes?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
