Thanks, [personal profile] thnidu] sunlight).

I mean, first, it seems like they're typically a bit of content wrapped around a crazy reward model.

Possibly Temporary post: The Secret World of Guild Wars 2, or a newbie's exploration of the MMO

I posted this on dreamwidth, but it's not reposting for some reason. So just noting, I may remove this if the dreamwidth one finally makes it across (then again, I may not if it's gotten significant comments. I reserve the right to contradict myself).
