Alright. Thread derailed thanks to me. Let me steer it back on track with a legitimate question.

Does the game become boring considering the combat to be reality based where magic and magical items are missing? Its the quest for ever powerful artifacts that appeal to me in rpg's. Where is the draw here?

Jason, you know it. Some denominations have this. Some have that. But the Southern Baptist will always win out on fellowship dinners. I dare anyone to find better and more plentiful meals.

I don't feel like it becomes boring.  There's still an ability curve with gear, it's just not magic based.   You get bonuses to defense, stealth charisma ect based on what you're wearing. 

For example, a battered set of full plate won't protect you as well as brand new ornate Nuremberg plate.  You also won't get as far in conversation if you're wearing dirty, cheap armor as you will if you're wearing expensive gear that is commonly worn by noblemen.

Same goes for weapons.   Cheap, quickly produced swords/maces/axes meant for the rank and file aren't as good as the much more expensive and hard to get named weapons you get in the mid to late game.

Not all horses are created equal either, and you'll invest a lot in upgrading to better mounts and better gear for your mounts.

So, yes, you'll be regularly improving your arms and equipment.

I burned out on this after about 10 hours. I'm sure I will go back to it eventually.

That's encouraging. I may have to grab this when it's on sale. Not that I have the time to play of course.

For a premium game that isn't long enough to justify the price IMO. Then again, I really have to like a game to invest a bunch of time into it.

Hehe. But they make the best paella around.
