What are some cool, important or unique features that you love about Archeage? No matter what it is, I want to hear about it!

At the minute I don't have access to the game, but I've heard a lot of interesting things about the different options and mechanics which only makes me crave the game even more - so those of you that are currently playing the game (or if you just have a lot of knowledge about Archeage), please do share some juicy info, I want to know even more!

My personal favourites are:
  • You can hire a personal tutor to teach you the opposing faction's languages.
  • There are small islands in the ocean than you can inhabit.
  • Plenty of options to customize your appearance in terms of character creation, costumes and dyes.
  • I prefer the old school tab targeting combat system (as opposed to the newer action oriented combat) and I'm sure that the PvP aspect of the game will be a total blast because of it!
  • I like how you aren't forced to play a certain class, but that you still have the option to attain a specific role (healer/tank/dps), because in my opinion it feels rather empty when you play a game where every class can (in theory) take care of the same job.
  • Building your own house, farm or castle and then decorating it with furniture really brings life as well as a homely feel to the game - You get more attached to the world when you help shape it!
  • Player-driven economy - Auction house, here I come!
  • Music, enough said.

I'm up to level 25 in the alpha and I feel like I've barely scratched the surface. I quite like the class system though. I finally found a combination of skill sets I feel comfortable with: Cleric (Vitalism/Auramancy/Songcraft), and am having a great time as a healer.

The water is really quite beautiful as well... Can't wait to go sailing.

Are the water physics any good? Does it splosh if you walk or jump into it? It looks rather dynamic actually, but I haven't looked for the details in it yet.

Well, I'm not sure there's much hard physics going on, probably mostly just clever effects, but the ocean waves seem quite pleasant. Maybe I'm just a cheap date :P

I can already imagine the picturesque view as I stand fishing on a beach, waves slowly rolling in.. ahhh.. tranquility.
