What We've Been Doing:
Picture this, you are actually casting spells using your actual “hands”. You are reaching down and picking up weapons off your hips. You are moving through the map and looking around and seeing things. You are talking to people and not typing! It’s so cool and I love it. Finally a VR MMO that works.
I am playing an Essence Mage DPS. I’ve made 3 characters all EM DPS
I learned how to do the cooking table, which is so much fun. You are actually cooking and not just pressing buttons.
