Good to know you can buy these advantages.

Well it is F2P title. This was expected.

 

Ofcourse, but it still hurts me to see Neverwinter implement it ;o)

I'm all fine with F2P models ... as long as they do not empower the rich. If it turns out to be a 0.0001% difference, i'll look the other side.

Except that you can earn astral diamonds in game. Its just a convenience thing, if you want to level faster in crafting you can buy astral diamonds off other players for zen, which those players can use to buy cash shop items like character slots or new races. I dont see how thats a bad thing.

As long as its only saving time, and not making you more powerful, I have no issues with it. In fact it provides incentives for other players to grind astral diamonds.

Blasphemy, how can a website advise people to buy a $200 content pack for a free game?

 

The link on the bottom to the founders pack should be removed... 

Because MMORPG journalists didn't write this. Because Cryptic and PWE "teamed up with" (paid) MMORPG.com to bring you this "Dev Blog" (advertisement), wherein they can "offer insight" (say whatever they want) about the game without having to worry about things like "miscommunication" (journalistic integrity).

Look at this neat free game. Only $200 to experience it fully... for free! But wait, there's more!

I really view these dev blogs as similar in function to late night infomercials.

 

This entire, so-called article is here because of PW/Cryptic ad money. No other reason.
 

Tin Foil hat out now?Purely stupid statement.

 

So, there haven't been a dozen or more big ass banners advertising this game across the top of the site? And I suppose that the "columnist" that came up with this thing did so spontaneously, as opposed to being given the assignment by one of the editors. It is not even a secret anymore that gaming sites are little better than portals for advertising. It is straight pay for play. An advertiser buys "the package" and then get more than a few banners.

Guys, do you not see "Dev Journal" right at the top? This article is written by Cryptic. That's... That's the entire point of it. Cryptic has opted to put their information here first. It's a developer blog. Developer blog.

If MMORPG.com let Cryptic upload a new exclusive trailer, would you guys complain about that, too? This is the same thing.

I don't know what's wrong with some of you.

Astral Diamonds are earned in game through daily quests, events, foundary usage and other things.  It is not currency you buy from Cryptic, but rather one of two forms of currency within the game that players trade amongst themselves.  It is ZEN that the cash shop uses, which is the third currency in game.  Astral Diamonds are the middle currency whereby a player that spends time doing their dailies and such will be able to use Astral Diamonds to trade with other players in the same way they would trade gold (though players that have excess zen could trade it to other players for the Astral Diamonds they unlocked).

 

Astral Diamonds (again, they're not the cash shop currency of Zen and require work to get) can be spent at shops/stores in game for specific items, just as there are shops that sell items for copper/silver/gold.

 

 

Then the question is can astral diamonds be bought with Zen? It sounds like GW2 where you buy gems for cash, if it's the same then you are effectively buying the speed up with cash, after converting it to AD's.

 

This part is from my understanding, which I do not claim to be perfect.  But you are not able to buy Zen and then trade for Astral Diamonds or Gold directly from Cryptic (Though they do have set trading currencies; I'm not sure if that's for their own trade or to regulate trade among players).  You will however be able to trade for already existing AD's that players have grinded out.  That being, if you spent a month doing dailies and want something from the cash shop, you could trade your ADs to someone who has Zen, and then buy what you want from the Zen shop.

I do not think they simply create ADs (Maybe wrong on this, as I read different things from different testers and haven't touched the Zen store yet) out of nothing and then just trade it for any Zen you buy; it has to exist in the economy and had to be worked for by someone.

This is indeed incorrect. As of the last beta I played, Astral Diamonds can be converted from purchased ZEN. Further, while it's earned ingame, its done at an incredibly slow rate and one that's based on a lottery system. Some days I earned 3k, other days I earned less than 300. In neither case is it sufficient to 'keep up with the Joneses', as the saying goes.

Are you sure your zen is being converted to AD and not traded for AD? The guy you're responding to is saying that buying AD with zen doesn't generate new AD. He isn't saying that it's impossible to obtain AD using zen.

I didn't test this myself, but isn't it supposed to be like GW2 where you are essentially buying in-game money from other players? In GW2, gold isn't generated when you buy it with gems. In fact, a large percentage of it is deleted in the transaction.

Neverwinter's crafting system is easily the worse crafting system I had ever experienced in an MMO.

I hope it's not true what these people say that you can craft the best gear in the game with crafting.  Almost all the items pre level cap created through crafting is junk.  I dumped 200,000 Astral Diamonds or about $4.00 USD into crafting and all I was able to make was some level 16 leather boots, they weren't even green quality.  The NPC venders sell blue quality equipment so you will never need go the crafting route if you are leveling.

 

The problem with the crafting is that it takes soo much time.  The fact that it happens passively while you quest is irrelevant.  It's the difference between tossing your laundry in the dryer yourself, or putting all your wet clothes out in the sun to dry for 12 hours.  If you want to speed up the process? You are going to pay my friend, it's a huge astral diamond sink. You can choose to pay with your time or you can choose to pay with your money, but either way, you're definitely going to be paying A LOT.

I wouldn't be the least shocked if it cost at least $60.00 USD to power level crafting to max, so you can be able to craft end game gear.  You'll have to power level it in order for the rate of crafting to match the speed of own your character's leveling progression

Nailed it. Some here see the word Cryptic and pounce. All you have to do is look at the post history, ignore them and move on.

Absolutely incorrect - They even have a special window for people to buy/trade/sell astral diamonds for Zen.

It does have items that are pay to win. Spending a little time looking at vendors will reveal this. In the last beta I found un-named merchants that sold op enchants with no level limits for Astral Diamonds.

Who cares?  Every facet of life is pay to win.  If you don't like it you can always quit now.  This isn't new, nor will it be changing...ever.

Just because every car has similar features doesn't mean that Ferraris are copies of Model Ts. Progress requires failure and refining.

Umm, its a MMORPG anyway.  Theres no way to "lose" a MMORPG.  Until MMORPGs start recording win/loss ratio, kill/death ratio, and have some consequence other than a little lost experience for death, there is no way to "lose".

 

And besides, your REAL LIFE MONEY is money that your REAL LIFE CHARACTER owns.  In other words, YOU.  If you want to be an escapist and forget about your real life, then I can see why you would want everyone to have to use in-game money to buy things, rather than real money.  BUT, if your life sucks so bad that you need an escape.. maybe you should be working towards REAL LIFE advantages before you start playing a video game.

You can do crafting from Gateway. It will be a sort of minigame on your handheld device.

It's a free to play game with a cash shop, the horror. 

Some of you really need to come down off your high horses, and stop acting like the worlds biggest nerds just because you're on the internet. 

Awful lot of forum posters on the internet could use a serious dose of dignity.

Bitch if they do bitch if they don't. If it was P2P people would complain that 15$ a month is too much to pay for an online game (it isn't btw), but now that it's an F2P game they'll find reasons to down it.

From all the betas it was a very solid game. From what I could find while searching during game, you can only trade ZEN to players for Astral Diamonds. Theres an interface that allows people to put up essentially instant buy-out auctions, requesting a certain amount of Astral Diamonds for a certain amount of ZEN or vice versa, thus not creaing any new Astral Diamonds in the process. If this is changed, point to me where in the main city you can find a straight ZEN to Astral Diamond transfer, that is strictly NPC involved.

Yes another p2w...where Astral Diamonds are earned ingame exclusively or could be trade for (Player to player trade) with zen, indeed, very pay 2 win.
/sarcasm
