Question of the week, I have been enjoying Mortal Online 2 once they corrected their queue issues, the depth of the crafting and skills system is interesting to figure out. This week End of Dragons has taken over as the primary game, but I still find myself logging into MO2 to craft and farm some materials. The thing that makes me concerned with MO2 is as they compress the servers will the community/PK groups again take over the game and make it return to the MO1 game of ganking.

QotW: It was probably always going to be Gw2 EoD but I was considering just finishing the story and then playing Elden Ring and Atelier Sophie 2 for most of the month. Then I played EoDs again and yea everything other than EoDs can wait. It is a massive step up from both previous expansions by a large margin.
