How much better is Zenonia 2 than the original?

I want to get this game yet I am hesitating, what is so much better in the sequel? I haven't found any answers in the 'Zenonia 2 is out' thread, so please answer here. Thanks.

So far i'm enjoying it, with the PvP system and the costumes, it'll be better than the original with up to 4 characters, but unfortunatly it has only 3 save slots. There's also a trade system where you can trade items with other people

Upcoming iPhone Games: World of Midgard,Paper Monsters, LostWinds,The First Attempt,Blade Slinger, Kale in Dinoland, Prevail

I don't see THAT much of a change, honestly.
Don't get me wrong, I love it, but it isn't like they changed it completely. If you hated the first, you'll most likely hate this one too.
The inclusion of a character that moves fast was a big plus for me, as unimportant as it sounds. It feels nice to zip around, and it makes the quests less tedious.
Well, there are four characters to pick from, and the three that you don't pick still appear in the game. There are more items, a new item creation system, and a number of other small improvements. All in all, it feels more streamlined, but the spelling mistakes and unclear language in this game irk(s?) me quite a bit. I understand that there's a lot of text in the game and everything, and I don't mind the lack of clarity when I can infer what's being said, but sometimes it gets in the way.. I invest in a skill thinking it does one thing, but it ends up doing something else. It's very annoying.
In the end, Zenonia 2 is a typical sequel.. I don't see how people seem to think that it's THAT much better than Zenonia. Still, you should buy Zenonia 2, it's a great time waster^^

Lol.. A bit of a cynical overview, but for the most part I agree. The biggest selling point in this game is that it has onine pvp, weapons and armor that effect how you look and the combination/item creation.

How about the amount of grinding compared to the first?

It is common in JRPGs (Japanese) where you level up by repeatedly kill enemies to get xp. To me it is very boring when I would rather be doing something related to the storyline. This is what killed Zenonia to me.
