    Default Is there a "main" questline in this game?

    I played this game for like, one month, when I was 13. I had no clue what I was doing. I figured I would be smarter now and started a free trial today, but I still have no clue what I am doing. Is there a "main story" to complete, or is it just go out and have fun hitting stuff? So far I've been having fun hitting stuff.

    From what I remember, yes, there is one, but the main quest is largely associated with the town you start in and in the vanilla version of the game, will eventually lead you to the final battle with the Shadowlord who was the game's original antagonist. So technically there is three story arcs, I never got far enough to know if you end up doing all three town quests or not though.
    True beauty exists in things that last only for a moment.

    You can do all three town quests, but they all lead into the main overarching story. There's a main story for the original game, and a main story for each of the expansions - they're very good, and the game is more accessible these days (apparently).
