We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

Got news for those who think the game is P2W?  P2W games do not give away free sh*t.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

I had the Guardian pack so I started with 600,000. As of today I sit at 2.4 million AD. Though as more people hit 60 the flow of easy AD is starting to slow down.

Was great while it lasted! Now to sit on it till the conversion ratio is good.

Hey! Lets just kill the games economy before it has even been released for a month!

They do stuff like this often with their other titles. Run promotions, weekend events, zen sales, etc. 

If anything it needs this little bump to make the conversion from AD to Zen a bit more reasonable. As of right now, it is not in line with their other games currency systems.

Just a shame it's only 'rough' diamonds. Well, at least I can have a few days off without feeling like I'm not getting my daily AD refined....

This was on the games ingame calender since open beta (launch) started btw.

Sometimes they run promo where you can buy Zen and get an extra 15% for free, but I don't recall anything higher.

What can you do in the game where playing more will get you more AD? You can only do the daily once a day. The skirmish events only seem to give 1k AD for the first time and then 100 AD for subsequent skirmishes. What else is there?

Skirmish does 1k EACH time. If You got a level 6-11, you can do 10-12 skirmish in the hour. Then there are tradeskills, invocation, dailys.

I've been hitting the Leadership missions that give AD, and even my low-level characters are doing 2 or 3 missions every couple of hours and getting 800 or 1200 AD a time.  What with the Daily Foundry and Invoking it's all adding up nicely, even as a casual player.

That's a pretty cool promotion.  I was hoping it was double AD on Zen conversion.  That would have been sweet.  I would have bought like $30 worth.

Perfect timing and yes i saw that,too bad i got really bored of playing already.The game has not changed from level 1 to 22,i play every fight the same except the odd boss fight that allowed me to point hit and hide around obstacles.

it is nice to usually group but in this game,nobody chats,it is more like a race,fights are always a zerg,nothing organized what o ever.The trend seems to be all Bosses spawn adds,AI is really poorly done,trash mobs don't really have any AI.

I knew going in what to expect,it is after all f2p but i was hoping the combat and game would change a bit,but it is just your typical linear questing and not really that great after the initial excitement wears off.

It did hold my interest for about 5 days,much better than other games that have come out,some i delete in first 20 minutes.

I find the que times are quite long. Are you playing with a party of 5 to do that many skirmishes in an hour?
