QuoteRecently I've been looking through a number of games I never tried and I remembered like a decade ago I played some Asian MMO where it literally took 1-5 minutes of pretty idle combat to kill one normal mob, you lost exp on death and just a single level of like 150 levels could easily take a full day. I loved that.Pretty sure that particular game is dead by now, but it would be nice if I could find some new game that meets some of the following points:Combatyou don't need to pay a lot of attention, the less inputs per minute the better (full auto-combat or no combat at all is fine too, if there's more depth to the game in other parts)preferably no keyboard input needed during normal grindsit can be more demanding during special boss or pvp fights, just not the majority of timeGeneral Gameplaygrind-heavyeither a very, very long way to max level (at the very least like 300+ hrs) or some good endgame content with a lot of character progressiondepth to the game (I like to theory craft strategies while playing, always thinking what the most optimal next steps are, looking through menus and stats, looking at a wiki - I don't want to feel rushed or like I am not playing efficient while doing so)rare loot even from non-raid like contentrare items and collectiblesno real money only advantages or at least purchasable with in-game currency as welldon't care too much about dungeon / raid content right now, but I wouldn't mind of courseno resource management system / base upgrade as the main focusStory, Setting and Other Thingsstory not important to me (skippable cut scenes and quest texts are nice)any graphics are fine, it could be 3d with newest graphics, 2d or fully text-basedit's available for PC (and not just some bad mobile port)free demo up to a certain level or f2pif you know a fitting single player RPG or Adventure that takes more than a week to complete I might be interested too (obviously doesn't need to be f2p)Some games that I recently played are WoW, OSRS and a number of rather short incremental games. While OSRS is quite close to something I would like to play right now, it just requires too many clicks when you're trying to be efficient.The last few days I did enjoy playing Megami Quest 2 a lot, but at some point there's just very little content left after you started to fully min-max it. I also tried some idle games, but all of them are missing a lot of depth to them.I'm looking forward to any suggestions, keep in mind not all of those points need to be met as long as the game offers a lot of content and depth (grinding for weeks as content is fine for me, if it's rewarding) and has a rather passive combat system.edit: Thanks for all the suggestions so far, I am currently looking into classic FFXI a bit more. My biggest complaint from my first impression are the weird console-style menus, but it gives me a lot of nostalgia. Trying my Xbox1 controller instead of mouse/keyboard next, first minutes felt a lot better already. Not sure yet if I'll stick to it FFXI though. Still open to more recommendations.Quick summary of suggested games in no particular order:OSRSDofusWakfuRagnarok OnlineFFXIFFXIVTibiaPantheonKenshiEveGW1MaplestoyTwelveSky 2WoW Classic
