There's like a billion convoluted things to do besides combat but the combat itself is flashy and fun (if, again, trivially easy through much of the game).
That's how I felt when I started, then gradually got the hang of it. I quit for awhile because of the insane RNG aspect, but I'm playing again.
Regarding the combat, it's the best combat of any MMO I've played, ever. And it's probably going to be a long time before another game tops it. I just wish everything else in the game weren't such a nightmare.
