Like any MMO your experience is what you make of it and the latency of your connection from your console/PC to the nearest server.

Since the game is free to play you will come across microtransactions although they are not in your face and are mainly cosmetic. I do like how the game eases you into the gameplay in that it is not all that difficult to play by yourself although you can get a free NPC as a companion (think Lydia in Skyrim who can be very useful) at about level 15. Other companions can be purchased with in-game currency that you can get by doing dungeon quests or with real world money if you are the impatient type.

You can even form a guild and invite real-world friends or acquaintances or you can try and be the best in PvP although both of these are optional. Personally, I have found most players are quite helpful even to a loan player especially if you return the favor.

If you like RPGs in the Sword and Sourcery genres then you will probably like Neverwinter and being free is a nice bonus. After all, you have nothing to lose except your time. 😉

BTW. Neverwinter is one of the few RPG's that I have played that you don't need to do any grinding (you can if you wish) since the quests are many and varied and allow you to level up at a reasonable pace. Before entering an area or fighting a particular dragon or demon there is a recommended level. Go in too low you have a very good chance of getting one hit killed.
