I'm going to have to disagree with several points here.
Because of the potentials system, you can solo the entire game. Fast kills mean more exp, rendering PQ's useless. It's very punishing to be in a party in terms of exp growth, since you kill the entire map yourself faster than 2 people can; so you have no desire to party with anyone. Bosses that took 20 minutes in a well formed party of 5, can be solo'd faster than writing up a megaphone message for a group.
In effect, socializing is very limited since big bang happened.
Kind of a mixed bag, but dozens of other classes made things more confusing, on top of making balance more of a bitch to maintain.
Since the exp tables have been reduced heavily, it's a good thing they have more classes. Because otherwise you'd have maxed the 4 primary classes in a week. Still boring, but at least you get something different.
