Hello everyone, again I'm sorry for taking so long to post.
Despite my laptop having integrated graphics, this game runs quite well. Very rarely will the game show signs of slower frame rate.
This game gives you lots of quests from the start which inform you as to how the game works, you can also track NPCs and monsters from the quest list to make it easier to find them.
After playing for a while, it seems that there is almost no regular grinding in this game. It gives you quest after quest after quest. Which seems good at first, but the quests get boring and generic fairly quickly. However there are some fun jump quests and quests which make you find certain items in locations which mix it up a bit.
Skills are obtained in this game by paying money and points obtained by killing monsters/completing quests etc. You can get almost all of your low level skills with no problem. I'm assuming it would also be possible to get all your skills since there isn't a limit to gold/points.
Combat is the basic 3-D style of click to select, keypress/skill to attack. Nothing special, although you can fight underwater and I hear that you can also fight in the air (flying for certain races).
One last thing to note: the jumping in this game is ridiculous. You can double jump extremely high, making jump quests and travelling a bit less boring.
