The Daily Grind: Which MMO zone would be the worst place to live in?

There are parts of every MMO that look lovely, like the sort of place you’d love to live. But that’s definitely minority. I mean, let’s look at Final Fantasy XIV’s Mor Dhona, a blasted hellscape literally filled with void energy and ice over everything. Or World of Warcraft’s Outland, which is both a warped nightmare land and a collection of continents which people still mistakenly call “Outlands” or “the Outlands” despite the fact that the game’s package made it clear that was wrong years ago. Heck, there’s Taris in Star Wars: The Old Republic, where the Republic is actually trying to form a colony despite the fact that it’s a puddle of diseased sewage.

And this is just off of the top of my head; there are lava zones, places covered in lightning, probably a least a few midway through a robot revolution. Trove takes place in an exploding neon nightmare, it’s probably not fun to live there however you slice it. So which MMO zone would be the worst place to live in? And are some of those places still locales where some of your characters might make a home despite the awful conditions?

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!
