Typing whatever you want would be nice. But it set up for younger players, so they are not exposed to bad language. But they do need to look at certain words being ok to type. It is a pain to not be able to type numbers and single letters. I was trying to explain to a player the other day how to look up the quest they had. It would not let me type the letter "L" I ended up having to speel out each letter...eye, jay, kay, el. Which of course it would not let me type "el" lol
Job resrtictions are set up to open up when more expansions are released. Most MMO's have this set up.
All jobs are avalible to all players. You can only goto level 5 on any job if you are a non-paying member.
Again this game is set up for younger players. As an older player I like the short-cuts. Easier for travel to me.
Now if I had to complain about something. I wish there were more quests. Having to grind the same quest over and over to get to the level 5, 10, 15 and 20 level marks is a pain.
