I'm no hardened M.M.O veteran but I know one thing- typically you gain XP by defeating enemies and finishing quests. Which is all right. But an exciting thing has happened in Lord of the Rings Online- crafting now gives one experience.
If they did something similar with The Old Republic, would you cheer? Would it not make any difference to you?
Please stop using "I have a bad feeling about this." It's Han Solo's line; he'd like it back.
