A look at the freeform progression... (reddit) →
One of the things I am most interested in for TSW is the freeform progression utilizing an ability wheel. There are no classes or levels, you just gain ability points (AP) as you kill things and do quests, spending them however you wish to progress through the 525 unique active and passive abilities.
