I was hooked by a friend talking about the awesomeness of a mob that, as it happens, appears almost nowhere else in the game - the Harvest Watchers in Westfall. I'd never seen the game before, but the aesthetic that produced the Watchers - and, I admit, Dwarves With Guns and Elves With Zeppelins - attracted me almost immediately.Added bonus: for two people I know, including my now-wife, the attractor was fishing. They decided they wanted to take over fishing since it looked exciting (in a Punch The Monkey kind of way; neither of them had really played any sort of video games before), got into combat while they were fishing, demanded to know what the little bars at the bottom were for, and went looking for more mobs so they could /try/ the abilities on the bar... and had their own accounts within 24 hours.(Added added bonus: despite starting more than a year after I did, my wife has more total character levels than I do - and I'm the one with more alts! She also beat me to the level cap by more than six months...)
