Unless you're into sandboxy skill-based MMORPGs, the actual process of leveling up is probably an important part of whatever themepark you're playing. WildStar
has been jeered at for its over-the-top level-up animation
. EverQuest's ding
is infamous; the jarring "chonnggggg" of it still haunts me, and some clever modder even made a plugin to add it to Skyrim
. On the other end of the spectrum is Guild Wars 2
, in which I frequently overlook the fact that I've leveled up at all because the cues are relatively unobtrusive.
What do you guys think is the best MMORPG "ding" of all time?
