    Beta PVE Exploration

    I'm not sure if anyone else explored PVE fully. I believe I covered all the beta weekend zones that were made available and my World Completion said 25%. That may give us an idea of how big the world is on the map.

    However, if there are zones that are not implemented in the game yet, this may be a percentage of the zones that are currently active. So, the value may be skewed. I'm hoping this is the case because it feels a little small.

    In actual game time... roughly 15 hours.

    Initially the world didn't seem that big, however I think it will balance out more later. Even in the Norn starting area there were undergound areas that realyl branched out. They may not have had points of interest or waypoints, but it added more depth to the area. That doesen't even include the underwater side of things, or dungeons.

    Is that 25% of the beta, or 25% of the full world?

    Stated World Completion was 25% after exploring all areas that seemed available during beta...

    could be that the beta still has parts not included, just don't hold your breath when it's in beta.

    Well in Beta we had 6 Zones + 4 cities (also zones.) which is 10 zones total, so 25% is not unreasonable. This causes me to estimate 40 zones as a rough size for the game, its a lot when when you think about it. Even if the cities are smaller and count for less thats still 30+.

    Capital cities are pretty early, it's possible that after that the zones become more linear (as in, fewer zones per level range). Having separate zones for each race's tutorial takes up a lot of zonage.

    When the beta weekend happens again I'm going to uncover it all again and take some screenshots. It didn't occur to me to take some before (was too excited).
