The Daily Grind: Are there MMO starting zones you always avoid?


While some MMOs only offer you a single standard beginning zone from which to launch your legend, there are plenty that give players a choice. After all, you want to hook players in those first few hours, so why not present a buffet of starting areas to meet all personality types?

With those MMOs that do offer starting zone choice, it’s not uncommon for us to settle on favorites — and begin to avoid the alternatives like the plague. In RIFT, for example, I would always roll Guardian to venture around Silverwood because I disliked the blah-ness of the Defiants’ Freemarch so much.

What about you? Are there MMO starting zones that you always avoid on principle?

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!
