No idea what the population is. The server I play on seems to have
quite a few. There's always more than enough for groups, chat,
whatever. And pretty much every group uses voice chat.
The UI is obviously a major difference: things like icons, text, etc.
Hard to explain so I'll just post a link to a screenshot.
you don't use the mouse to move, only to look around and attack, which
can be a bit annoying at first but, you get used to it.
Visually, it is much better than WoW. It looks more 'realistic'
whereas WoW has that sort of cartoon look to it.
Obviously it uses the D&D rules and levels, so no power levelling to
be had. You can also multi-class.
Don't know what else to say really.
