IN most games I have worked on, in order for animations to work right, the inclines need to be 2 to 1. So ramps and stairs 8 feet long and 4 feet high. That might be steeper in this game, I don't know. However ramps and stairs are really the only way to go since making ladders work is tough and in this game, elevators are instance portals. If they had figured out how to move characters on elevators they might have been able to jazz it up a bit more, but its a hard task. The only game I saw that did it well was WoW.
