Hello there! I just wanted to ask your opinion.
Recently, SE seems to have "modernized" it's stance on in-game items obtained with RL-cash.
I know, we had stuff like the tidal talisman before, but honestly... If I really wanted
to have the best possible start in FFXIV, it now sums up to the following:
Cash-shop item / requirements to obtain / RL money required:
Onion Helm / Pre-order the CE / $65
Garlond Googles / Pre-order the RE / $50
Asuran Armbands / Pre-order FFXIII (a totally unrelated game, mind you!) / $50
Mercury shoes / Have at least one active character in FFXI / $9(Steam)+$7(reduced monthly fee)
Now I won't do anything but the first, but somehow I don't like the way this is going.
Modern times? Perhaps. But I surely don't like RMT, no matter whether it is done by
illegal Chinese or legal Japanese gilsellers.
