Best MMORPG for "noob"

Having never played MMORPGs before (did a bit of Runescape cause I thought it would be like these) I was wondering which would be the best one to go for in case it is completely different and I'll end up being called a "noob"

I was thinking LOTRO and SWTOR as I like both Tolkien and Star Wars.
I'm wary of WoW. Don't know why, just am.

Check out "Raiderz" fairly new and similar combat to what TESO will be so you can get accustomed.

There's nothing greater than feeling like a noob in a game again. If I were you, I wouldn't play anything until TESO releases. Your first MMO will be something special and TESO will make a wonderful first MMO.

^^ Couldn't agree more.

Runescape was my first, and even tho it's shit now... Its still holds a place in my heart.

I am actually hitting the DAoC 14 day free trial right now, because joining this forum has dredged up so much damn nostalgia.

Wow, DAoC is still around? I remeber the beta in I think it was 2002. I played a Troll back then (problem? ;-D), carrying all siege weapons for the castle attacks. It was awesome! WoW never acomplished to match that kind of experience.

I don't know when you stopped playing, but since Shrouded Isles, there are now starting areas where a bunch of "how-to" quests will hurl you past level 10 in a couple hours or less. Leveling is also faster which is good because there are a lot of higher level places I remember which I still want to revisit. I'm already level 23.

There aren't many people online who aren't level 50 though, so I'm mostly exploring solo. From the realm messages, there is still a lot of action still happening in the frontiers. I might actually pay for a month or two to get some action in.

There's not many games more noob friendly than WoW these days to be honest.

Ha, TESO won´t be my first online RPG, but it will be my first MMO: I´m playing a lovely Iso3D oldschool RPG as Betatester, was there within the Closed Beta. No fighting together yet, you meet other guys just in cities. Herokon Online.

Right now am playing Planetside 2 since a week. Both are free2play, but there´s no english version of HO yet, but I met even englishspeakers there, who were highlevels.

PS2 is great for noobs! no tutorials, and the reason why: you´ll die anyway, within 3 minutes, or you are avoiding battles ;)

Just me thougth: It´s supposed to be a MMORPG, but its BETA without MMO contents, so its a a ORPG :)

Thanks for this awesome suggestion Liger! RaiderZ is a good game to prep myself regarding becoming comfortable with the controls for ESO since these controls are different for me as I've never played a game with such controls. Now I'll know what to expect.
