Thanks for the replies and filling me in everyone.
Yea, it was stated long long before someone would have needed to start paying. If you only want 1 character I think you only pay $13, and legacies pay $10. Legacies get more character slots, but most I'm assuming, like myself, will only use the one.
Well you have to compare the price to the one of equivalent value. It is a no-commitment 1 month fee with 8 chars per server, which is $14.99. Though I can't see the purpose of having multiple characters either. I'm typically someone who enjoys making alts and it seems that this game won't have a purpose for it. So I might just do the entry cost ($12.99) myself. It depends on what you can experience the game has to offer through alts. The last game I played with a similar class setup was The Secret World and I still made one alt to play a different faction. See anything like that in this game?
Here's the breakdown.-
- Is afraid that Legacy Players will dominate the game/economy
Interesting point on that is I was hanging out in Teamspeak with one of the guys who wanted me to pick up this game and another friend who, like me, will be new to the game come ARR. The friend of mine who is a legacy player was telling us about how he was going to get to reclaim his character and full items. At first, us two newbies were a little shocked, my 2nd friend moreso than me. Our "legacy guide" was quick to point out that we can't think of this as a new game, that this is basically an expansion and we are just joining late. Hard to argue with that reasoning.
But yeah you guys are making me want to stay off the official forums. It also looks like this set of forums is even getting more traffic and posts/threads currently. Edited, Jun 21st 2013 10:17am by decoyninja
