Pay to Win after f2p?

Hi, I'm gonna try tera and maybe will buy it to get the vet status, but before that, I want to make sure it is not going to be pay to win when the f2p period comes. What kind of items are going to be on the store? bonus xp and cosmetics like mounts etc?

they promised that there won't be items that will disrupt the game balance and the items will be

vanity items (clothes and stuff with no stats)

teleport scrolls and npc summon scrolls

mounts

name change

character alteration

my guess is that they'll sell permanent dyes too, xp scrolls and instance reset scrolls

edit: forgot to write that they also plan on selling character slots and bank slots to those who didn't buy the game, those who already got the game got max character slots and bank slots

AW: Pay to Win after f2p?

Yeah and at 2:40 they say Items that are avaible via gold at the moment ingame or in dungeons (atleast in the german Interview Version).

If you look at Korea patchnotes removing spellbind etc (items avaible ingame via gold, huh?) and adding them in there cash shop same for master enigmatic scrolls btw.

If they did that in kTera, it doesn't mean with certitude that they gonna apply it here. Shops may vary on different versions.

KTera removes MW Alkahest, Spellbind etc, add them into the cash shop, GF announces there will be items that you can get by now still InGame via gold (which could that be...? Oh yeah ...)

KTera adds Master enigmatic scrolls to cash shop, GF said also items that are avaible in dungeons.

You really think we get not the same as KTera? You must be trolling or extremly naive

Considering alkahest is tradeable which means even if they take it away in vendors, they'll still be available in the broker. Who knows if they sell alkahest in cash shop for 1€:14 alkahests, then we'll probably have TONS of alkahest in the broker, which can drop the price considerably and might be cheaper than the actual 30gold price each. Which will lead to more money for GF and more profitable to ALL players.

Nope, thats not working.

In KTera yes Alkahest is still tradeable, but they making a new "currency", where 1 Cash Shop Token/Gold = xx Gold.

And that it gets cheaper is not possible at all, since our curent economy lives from the alkahest and things like this, that are taking Gold out of the game - With MW Alkahest etc only via Cash Shop, the Gold never gets out of the game and everyone (or the Cash Shop user only) will have TONS of it, which leads to higher prices, since there is more gold in the economy.

If you ever played a P-Server of a Game with Donation Coins, you will see that after a while the Cash Shop Coins will be traded like Gold for rare Items and noone takes your Gold anymore only the Cash Shop Coins and that 1 Cash Shop Coin in some Games is equal to 20Million and more (well in Tera more like 1Coin = 1k Gold) doesnt make things better, especially in the long run.


And btw this:

look how it is in KTera already (95k Gold = 95k Cash Token - and if I remember it right 1000Tokens = 1€, so 95€ and you get your +12MW Weapon, GZ!)

Yuhg, depends on what u consider p2w, if u think pay2win means some overpowered items that u cant get ingame without paying $$$, the answer is no, if u think pay2win is if u can skip the 2-3months of grinding and convert your $$$ into ingame gold/items/wealth, yes...
