As you progress you gain talents and skills that further deepen the customisation of your character. You choose a couple of primary professions which enable you to craft items. You can also form guilds with other people, enabling players to chat with each other and exchange items.
Once you have got to grips with the basics of the game, the main interest is the completion of quests that offer experience points, items, and in-game money. These include killing creatures, gathering resources, finding lost objects, visiting locations or delivering items. They are often strung together in a series that must be completed in order. The difficulty of some quests leads to the organisation of groups to tackle more challenging content. The group will need characters of different roles and skills to succeed.
