I am one of the few folks that I know that not only isn't bothered by WoW's look, but actually likes it, so this is very sweet for me. I kind of really want to run around here.
Also I am pretty sure even the Dev's said it was cartoonish looking due to tehe fact that they want it to be a fun game, with a fun look but extremely hardcore or detail. Combat is probably alike as GW2 which I am sold, Also raiding and housing. I do not mind cartoonish looking MMO's as long as it is detail catoonish looking as we are in 2013. And Wildtstar delivers that a detail graphic not Realistic but completly cartoon but with extreme detail. I mean look at that grass.
Also it does not reminds me of WoW but of my old good Nintendo 64 games which I love.
