I've picked up quite a few MMOs over the months, and I generally find playing MMOs solo as a new player pretty boring. If you want to team up as fresh players, let me know!

I also have quite a lot of multiplayer-centric games I haven't gotten around to like Borderlands The Presequel.

I could be tempted to start a new Dungeons & Dragons Online character if you're a new player, I was a top player ~4 years ago though I haven't really touched it since.

Dang, I got GW2 a year ago from a charity Humble and unfortunately had a subpar time soloing it.

you can get it free to play if you want, and a friend of mine has a key he wants to trade (from this year's yog something) i think i can trade it for anything i have if you liked it

Like I said, I already got that version of GW2 and played it as much as I cared to. Thanks though.

I started FFXIV awhile ago but didn't progress much from the start, but want to get back into. And I want to get into ESO. I agree with you that starting these games solo can be pretty lonely. So I'm down. :)

I'd kind of ideally like to play XI before XIV, but maybe ESO.

ESO is actually very playable solo. Friendliest community i've seen in years and a good matchmaking system for dungeons makes it possible to start solo. In my first days i had several active guilds trying to recruit me and some of them even offered help even though i rejected joining them. There's a few bosses that are meant to be killed by group and for those instances you are able to find people in chat. FF i haven't played so i can't really comment on those.

See "technically you can solo it" doesn't mean that it's enjoyable.

Everyone says "You can solo GW2!" but I found it absolutely miserable solo. I didn't get to do any of the story dungeons because they're not really soloable at-level and all of the PUG groups just want to zerg through them since they've done them 1000 times before.

I kinda meant it was enjoyable playing solo, at least for me it was. Pretty much any MMO is technically playable solo but ESO was the first one where i didn't feel like i was missing out by not having in-game friends. But what i tried to say in my horrible English is that even if you would start solo, you'd make in-game friends instantly because of the friendliness of the community. I usually grouped up with some lower lvl players and do dungeons with them, as those players are doing the dungeons their first time as well. Nonetheless i wish u luck with finding some players to join up with you. I'm sure there are some people here that are interested in grouping up.

I found it enjoyable to solo through- the organic grouping made it so I rarely was actually "solo" in any encounter. Likewise, the game has a "rush to help" mentality among its community, so it was rare that I didn't benefit from standard grouping assistance. Honestly, if the game just had better mechanics, I'd still be playing it, just for that fun grouping experience. Or, put another way, that grouping experience was the only thing that kept me playing to cap.

Of course, if you somehow managed to avoid that organic grouping, I'd imagine the game would be rather miserable indeed (given how weak the mechanics and quest appeal are).

As far as the rush-through-dungeons thing, you'll be hard-pressed to find an MMO that doesn't have that kind of dungeon experience. With experience, comes familiarity, and with familiarity, you get speed. Unless you've got a game with heavily randomized dungeons, you'll always need to take your time to learn the ropes as well as game veterans. If you want to avoid that, then just make a point of grouping up with other new players.

I don't know how people can have fun scheduling game time. I want to want to play a specific game like ESO/GW2 and have people on when I'm on. If I have to say "meet up at 6:30PM" then all of the awesome factor goes away.

That's odd, but whatever floats your boat. I like to play with a set groups of people, which means scheduling, especially when most people have other responsibilities.
