Im looking for MMORPGs that arent F2P (those are terrible) that have "useless" non combat skills... like "listening" (allows you to do things like hear through walls/doors for eavesdropping. Or being able o set and disarm traps, or have traps out in the open world which are triggered by certain actions (one game for example had a trap that was triggered by talking.. so everytime you talked using "say" the trap blasted you (talking in party chat or through private chat didnt set it off though), though a good thief or rogue could detect and disarm traps, as well as pick locks (since said game came from s time where treasures chests needed keys to be opened and werent as simple and just walking up and clicking on it... a thief on the other hand with the right skills leveled could bypass finding a key altogether and just pick the lock (this worked on locked doors too not just chests).
But the MAIN feature Im looking for in open world PKing, it could be either ANYWHERE outside of town or just specific areas scattered all over the world (though these areas would be areas youd have to venture to or at least through at some point so avoiding them altogether wasnt an option) and possibly being able to loot players after you kill them (though that part isnt mandatory for what Im looking for but it would be a nice bonus), I miss the thrill of exploring an unknown area, or doing a qust in an area while constantly looking over my shoulder knowing that at any moment another player could come out of nowhere and start attacking me. MMOs seem to have gotten so care bear as of late, where the stuff for those of us who are still looking for a rush?
Soo any MMOs out there liek that these days? It doesnt even have to be new one, I would prefer the newest game closest to it but if such a game doesnt exist this day and age and we have to go back to 1995 then so be it, Id play that too, I can name a million text based MUDs that fit the description Im looking for but I wanna play a graphical game thats the same or at least similar
