Well my outdated desktop has low specs. If I used that desktop, I could play games like:
Elsword
S4 League
Maplestory
Grand Chase
DragonSaga
LaTale
RumbleFighter

And some other games I'm forgetting.

So you want a low spec mmo that's innovative, fresh, and isn't a point and click or an fps. I got an idea. How about you tell us what mmo you've played so far that you do like?

I suppose action's pretty good, but pretty much anything with immediate enjoyment would do. Most MMO's I've played are all drawn-out grindfests.

You...an...mmo that isn't a grindfest that's also an action game? Then you already shoot down maplestory. Get off all internet. Now!

PS:Immediate enjoyment isn't telling what type of game you want to play and is so fing vague its not funny. How should I know what would give you emmedont injoymint? You've shot down ever game sujestion we've given you. ...I just reread my question. YOU STILL DIDN'T TELL ME WHAT MMO YOU ACTUALLY LIKE PLAYING! YOU JUST GAVE ME A ALDFJKLAFJKDLAJFKLAJFKLASJFKLADSJFAFDSAFS

I'm with Kaydi.


You don't have a lot of options, kid. lol. Your PC sucks, you want a non-grindy MMO that isn't point-clicky or repetitive or requires little skill to enjoy?

I believe the conclusion is rather simple:

You should stop playing MMOs.


Action = Repetitive
Anything else = Grindfest

Go back to console games.

An MMO that's an action game but not a grindfest? Don't know a low-spec one, but it sounds like you should give Guild Wars 2 a shot.

Oh yeah. Vindictus might work out for you too, assuming you haven't already tried it.

All games become repetitive in at least one aspect. That's why we get bored of them.

It'd help if you actually listed out the games you've already played.

I'd say pick up some emulators. Some of em' are playable online, so you might enjoy it.

Atlantica
Battlefield Heroes
Cabal
Combat Arms
DFO
DDO
Eden Eternal
Elsword
Fiesta
Grand Chase
GunZ
LaTale
Lost Saga
Mabinogi
Maplestory
MechQuest
Metin2
Pirate101
Ragnarok
Red Stone
Rumble Fighter
Spiral Knights
Tibia
Vindictus
Wakfu
Wizard101
Wonderking
Zone 4

All these games I either could not play for could not enjoy.

DFO is enjoyable but runs out of quests at level 35. What little motivation you needed to play the game was gone, and it turned into grinding.
I used to be able to play Eden Eternal until I needed to head to a high-population area. Now I can't play it at all.
Elsword and Grand Chase were basically the same repetitive game.
I'm only able to play LaTale on a private server that gets no updates.
Lost Saga is trash now.
Mabinogi has a lot of features, but few opportunities to use them all.
Maplestory might keep me occupied until level 35... which would be three days.
Metin2 is way too open and you have to pay money to actually get where you need to go quickly.
Spiral Knights always places me as the slowest on the team.
Tibia has no conveyance past the tutorial. Not to mention all the BRs.
Wizard101 requires a paid subscription to complete the first world.
Wonderking loses conveyance at level 30.

And those are the MMOs listed on MMOHut's main list. There's no telling how many others I've played.

Sue me for having standards, ass-munch.

o yesh, leme get in on this thread pls.

My friends and I are looking for a mmoRPG....RPG... Free roam kind of mmo kill monsters n sht. The graphics aren't an issue as we can all run anything perfectly.

So far we've played together (I mean just all 3 of us)
-Dragonica
-Guild Wars 2
-Aion (2 of us played =/)
-Mabinogi (2 of us played....)
-Maple Story
-Cabal
-WindSlayer
-Tera (I've played... they didn't want to.)

so yea, based on what I listed, does anyone know a good game with those kinds of qualities? ... I know you could list a crap ton of games based on that description, but I'd appreciate it if you would list your favorites. I personally feel like I have played everything out there so far, but all 3 of us haven't really played much together. we're all looking for a new start on a game. Thanks!

Okay. I can so work with this. Also when you say free roam I assume you mean open world right?

Raiderz is the first thing that comes to mind since its 3/4 non-instance a lot of BAM
are in open areas.

Blade and Soul is just what your asking for but the only places to play it are on private server or on the korean one. Its just like raiderz with this instances.

DCUO is another one but its 2/4 of non instance fun. I think all of the main story quest are in instances.

C9 is very action packed but I haven't gotten far in that game simply because of the spam bots taking over every kinda of general to area chat.

Phantasy Star is also another great game. While its not open world the action is just as good. It has amazing customization out of any game I've seen in a while. You can play on the jap servers now with an english patch for 75% of everything that isn't story related or wait for the NA servers that have yet to get a cbt date or any date of any kind.

I'll let you know if I think of anything else.

@Vector: You don't ask for help on something then act like your the queen of England and every game is too good for you to get your hands dirty on. Then expect people to pour rainbows out of their mouth for you. Your looking for an mmo. Not a kidney. Lower your standards to a normal mmo player level. I mean for godsakes your computer seems to have been built back in 2004. Go play GhostX Ultimate then wipe yourself with silk.
