Its better to be quiet and perceived as stupid, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

I imagine that two character slots limit for F2P is going to annoy some people right about now.

Nature without Technology is little more than animals running about.
Nature without Magic is without wonder or miracle.
.........
Magic without Technology is fantasy.
Magic without Nature is formless and useless.
.........
Technology without Nature is application without understanding.
Technology without Magic is repetitious and uninventive.

Character slots are one of the more reasonable purchases in the Zen shop. $5 for 2 additional character slots and there's a 33% off sale this week.

Charging for character slots is almost as dumb as respecs. People can just create new accounts

God only knows why you'd want to play through this game more than twice.

I enjoy it even though it isn't quiet finished yet but I think the cash shop model is going to drive me away. I have no problem with paying for things but they've just about gone overboard.

Decent game, but I'll say one thing negative: a game that only launches with 5* classes probably shouldn't be charging for a 6th in an expansion. That class should probably come standard. 

* Calling Guardian Fighter and Great-Weapon Fighter two different classes has always been a stretch for me. In any other MMO, they'd be considered the same class but different spec. IMHO, that felt like an eleventh hour attempt to pad an unreasonably shoddy line-up of classes and make it only about half as shoddy as the average MMO.

The Hunter Ranger class is free. There is no cost to be able to play the Ranger.

FIFY

I play the game and the content just doesn't pull me in like in other games. You can breeze through 1-50 in less than 3 months.

Good feature additions.

Content? Poor.

They are shaping the game pretty good with nice class specializations and the collections and stuff.. hopefully gearing up and getting everything ready so they can flesh out the actual gameplay with a decent expansion or something.

10 dollar 24 slot bags 35 dollar mounts 300k astral diamond cost for upgrading a white companion to green 750k for green to blue and 1.5 mil to purple from blue... A lock box drops from killing mobs about once every 3 or 4 minutes to the point of stacks upon stacks. You can earn maybe 20k astral diamonds a day at 60 they expect you to spend lots of cash and nickle and dime the living hell out of you for just about everything in game . Even the new enchantment system costs astral diamonds for each fuse. Great dungeon crawler game made by a okay company but their parent company perfect world is doing every thing they can do make sure no one wants to keep playing it with all the price gouging in game.

I have account wide perks like mounts and companions. The $5 for 2 slots makes more sense. I make characters not throwaway toons so I don't mind spending some money instead of rerolling. I guess it's perspective.

Yep, but there's still some thruth in that post, in f2p games char.slot purchase is mostly a convenience since you can make new accounts even by the dozens if you like. But i agree, it's much easier to have them all in one place.

It's not a big one anyways, now with the sale, only 335 Zen. With the current AD rate it's roughly 160k AD for the absolutely free players. 160k for 2 character slots is not that much I think.

 

True, not much but it's not free either :) I've tried to find the interview for an hour, but couldn't... Before Feywild, when it was clear that no new class is arriving with that module, there was an interview where the guy said, when the new class will be released later, they'll give an additional character slot with it. Then it was quickly muffled ofc, and no word, no mentioning of that since then :) Now here's the ranger, and only a char.slot sale came with it, no free slots - which isn't a surprise ofc.

Upgrading a companion is just a waste of AD, much better to simply convert the AD into Zen and purchasing a purple from the store, those are the best ones anyways.

Agree on the new system, even wrote about it earlier... Not to mention they updated the Coffer too, alongside the update yesterday, so you'll have much fewer green wards (previously it always gave a green ward, and very very rarely a Coal. one. Now it can also drop profession items. You can guess which one will be the most frequent drop, the prof.items, or the wards... :) )

Couldn't of said ti better myself.  I was stupid enough to pick up the $60 founder pack.  While its one of the better packs (having a tier 3 (purple) mount and companion on every new toon I create is nice.  But, the game could of been pretty decent.  The cash shop is such a turn off.  If they cut those prices like 60%, I promise they would make double profit compared to now.  I went back yesterday to try out the Ranger.  While it was pretty fun (not as much fun as my rogue).  I truthfully can't convince myself to play thru the same quests again.  Especially when You get your standard bag and 2 small bags from quests.  Leaving 2 bag slots empty unless you buy them from the cash shop.  If you like the combat system.  I recommend going to Tera.  The combat system is better there and the F2P system is actually pretty fair.  

 

 

And Astral diamonds, what a crook of shit.  Oh, and the gold you make in game is basically for "kits" and repairs.  The auction house doesn't even take the in game currency.  Only the cash shop Astral diamonds. 

 

 

Last thing.  I only noticed today that Neverwinter is now on Steam.  They also have a "steam exclusive" starter pack for $20.  You get a bunch of worthless items and a black panther companion.  You know, like the one people paid $200 (Hero of the North) to get.

Nothing impressive about this game until they fix the item shop.  Until then it will continue to be the POC it is.

we should be fair though here the cash shop is 150% perfect world Int. and not cryptic. Thread after thread pops up on their official forums only to have the mods censure a lot of posters complaining about the cash shop. If you look at all the PWI games though out there , all have insane prices on their games and the company is one of the worst of the asian free to play companies for pay to win. If Cryptic had any sense at all they would try whatever measures they have available to buy back their company from this scam artist publisher PWI. Everyone of those guys soon will be looking for jobs or stuck working on mediocre free to play asian garbage from PWI if they do not do something because PWI hasnt changed their game prices in their shops for years and I highly doubt they will ever. I know if I owned a company PWI is one of the last publishers I'd ever want to be associated with as they scream shady mediocre games and high ripoff cash shop prices.
