Okay, first, a philosophical answer: LOL EVERYTHING IS EPHEMERAL AND FLEETING, INCLUDING ZUBON AND CHRIS CHESTER AND ME and all the MMO's we play...

If you've forgotten that, please take a moment to look at your watch and ponder on how many more seconds remain in your meager life.

Anyway, the actual answer is that, like your life, the ephemerality of MMO's doesn't matter because you enjoy what you have while you have it, and then move on to new challenges. You only get to enjoy your achievement until you get bored with it - then you WANT a new frontier, something new to do.

If you're seeking permanence in an MMO, you are looking in the wrong place. Try a standalone RPG or adventure game. Fallout 3 might be a good place to start. MMO's are as transitory as life itself - that's the whole appeal, actually.
