I just want to make it clear since most F2P Games are P2W.. This game is 100% free no buying the game no sub but also all the market items are cosmetics. No Pay 2 Win in anyway... To make it more crazy the game has 25 Character Slots then you can buy each extra for like $2.50.

 

So I just felt like I had to share this information as a lot of people these days are like oh god a F2P game I wonder how much "gear" I can buy heh..

 

Anyway's check it out and make sure you do throw money at the company. Their amazing they done an amazing job and if you were a old Diablo player who disliked Diablo 3 or eh even liked it I will guarantee you will love this!

All cash shop games are P2W and this is due to the fundamental design of monetizing game mechanics.  PoE is just a lot more fair than most, since they have stayed away from the basic game mechanics.  I just wonder how long will they be able to stay with type of cash shop.

You make it sounds like its only time. Takes most the day of and others the week / month of. Even interviews it was pretty much over Chris's dead body :P

Ik kan alles, das echt ongelooflijk.

Yes, and I love it!

Actually, I've never even considered buying anything from a cash shop, but I am now. Just because the devs seem very good guys who genuinely care about the game they are making and I want to reward that. No pay-to-win makes we want to pay them :D

Exactly, I always hated the day Item Malls started to show up in games and then more greedy games where you Buy the game pay a month sub and then sell more items ontop of it jesus... But a company who does not charge for their game nor a sub nor anything that makes the game unfair is a new step in my books and in the right steps. Not even shortcut items no exp pots nothing. 

 

I wish more companies were like this at least the ones that don't want to charge a sub and the ones that due need to be more like RIFT where they actually come out with content more then once a year.

yep, I actually bought the premium stash tabs twice now, I have never bought a single thing in a F2P game until now.  I didnt really need to get the stash tabs, but I figured I am really enjoying this game and wanted to support the Devs some.  I would also purchase different sexes for classes if they add that to the shops, really want a male witch or ranger

is there anything to "WIN" in any game?  Every game is pay to waste money and time.  Difference here is you dont have to pay a dime to get complete game, and access to everything.

as for 2001, I dont remember any ARPG this good then, and that includes the beloved Diablo 2.

Why not go play Tera then and come back and tell us some more of your midlife crisis that you experienced.

You think you did. This game has D2 beat in graphics & map size. It also innovates with a currency barter system and new health/mana pot mechanics. D2 will always be one of the top ARPGs of all time, but the torch has been passed onto PoE now.

But atm there arent and its nice the game is well made FUN to play LOVE the barter system and all in all one of the best releases/open beta's of a game in a long time. not super smooth but smooth enough the servers didnt crash and people could play

Hey Jerk! Don't forget skill gems and Passive Skill Tree ;) Yes used in FF Games but still amazing and no other games really bothered to go that way.

Well since these kinds of games always boil down to "he who dies with the most toys wins" I'd say you just blew Kanechart's assertion right out of the water. So sorry but the player who has the biggest bank stuffed full of shiny crap is the winner.

Not to mention glowey weapons. Could you really ever claim that any high level badass was really a true badass if he didn't have a glowey weapon? I sure can't.

If you don’t do stupid things while you’re young, you’ll have nothing to smile about when you’re old.

Might want to have your sense of humor checked. Its seems to have burned out.
