Between the talent panel and the new Heart of Azeroth interface, World of Warcraft’s dev team certainly has embraced the concept of streamlined “interesting choices” when it comes to building characters. It’s not the worst idea, to give players a choice between two or more attractive options for character growth and forcing them to pick just one. But it is somewhat simplistic.
Everyone loves choices, especially choices that offer strong benefits for their characters. City of Heroes made me gnaw my fingernails as I agonized over new powers every other level or so. I even dug the perk system in Anarchy Online back in the day because it was something above and beyond mere stat increases.
What do you think? Which MMO gives you the best and most interesting choices when it comes to your character’s growth and development?
