That interview was a lot of fluff, and only one thing really caught my eye:
Planes of Power, anyone? This one of the major things players didn't like about later EQ expansions, even though I see the logic behind it and understand it was for the players' own good. Of course, one of the largest problems with this was spawn competition. Even on a non-PvP server, EQ guilds could selectively **** other players by camping select chokepoints, notably Rallos Zek, that takes practice to be able to pull off for the up-and-coming guild. At least in WoW, hopefully everything will be instanced so there won't be that one **** guild that decides to **** everyone else.
Only the exceptions can be exceptional.
