New content is being added constantly to the game. While many people, like any MMORPG, tend to take the game to the extreme and just play it to acquire gold as fast as possible by grinding work quests constantly, there is nothing in the manual that says that levels and gold is the best thing to have.
Rather, I find the in-game environments and interacting with other players to be the best part. That is just me though. I really have never found a game as open-world as this one… Skyrim doesn’t even come close.
And you know what? There are a lot of other players who also sometimes get fed up with the game. Griefers are around a lot… and they don’t always get banned like they should. Sometimes people exploit the various quests and the admins don’t seem to notice or care. We all deal with these things. Sometimes some of the feature implementation for immersion also seems to be too difficult such as the "pay to play" services in order to move out of your randomly assigned default starting location (and lets be honest, some default starting locations need to be waaaaaaay nerfed. Even "good" starting locations many times have too many random events that are way above most players’ levels (even the high level ones)).
But even with these random events I have yet to see one that a player can’t get past with some ingenuity and help from guildmates and by using the forum (I will talk more about the forum in a moment). Unplugging is an option, yes, but due to the DRM nature of the game once you unplug once all saved data is erased. For that reason alone I would suggest waiting out unplugging from the game.
Now for using the Forum. A lot of people I think don’t use the Forum enough. Did you know that there are people employed IN-GAME to help you troubleshoot, fix, and make your playing experience more enjoyable? You can access these Forum help threads and be assigned to a GM with the tag "therapist." Try looking for Forum topics with the search function of "Therapists in _______" with whatever location you are. These GMs are specialized in helping you enjoy the game again, as well as helping you explore and find a specific play style you can be happy with. I can tell you, this function is greatly underutilized.
Please tell me more about what sort of in-game features you are struggling with, I am happy to talk more about it!
[Really though, I just want to say that you are not alone in feeling like you just want things to end… even if you know you won’t act on it there is help available for you, and by no means does it make you weak for it. As a resource, /r/suicidewatch does exist and while it isn’t a substitute for a suicide hotline or professional help, it can be someplace to talk. If you do feel like you might try ending your life please call 911 or The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.]
