That's correct, though they have gone a bit more freemium, with their Black Lion Trading company. You can buy things with real money (purchasing crystals), though you can supposedly buy those same crystals with in-game gold. Just unsure what the rate is.

This game is fantastic and horrible at the same time... fantastic for more reasons than have been posted here in the past. I found out that there is a "Collectibles" inventory that is independent of your bank and personal inventory... and is sharable between all characters on your account! You can level your character while crafting too, so build up alot of resources and then have your newbie refine the base materials for a quick couple of levels. BOOM goes the dynomite!

Bad things... Alt-aholics Anonymous is about to get a call and you can only choose one server (which I could be totally wrong with, but that's the impression the game gives). Luckily the servers can be swapped now (for a couple of weeks maybe) for free. And the last bad thing is the BLT (Black Lion Trading Co.... aka Trading Post) has been down during the headstart. I guess to minimize the mass amounts of low level gear spamming the Trading Post.

Fun game nonetheless though.

So, is there no one else playing this game or just everyone too busy playing it to post anything?

I'm still holding out on it, I really don't know how I feel about another MMORPG at this point. Eh...

I get my first paycheck from the new job later today. I will likely be picking this up on the way home. What's your server again?

I'm on Dragonbrand right now, but if you know others who are playing on a server that you'd prefer, by all means let me know. It looks like they are leaving world transfers free for a short time to accommodate this time frame.

(Edited to reflect the change)
(* Edited because the change again. This time the group I'm with opted to move to join more of their friends)

So a friend gifted this to me, and I am extremely happy that she did, because I'm having a lot of fun with it. I'm in a guild with friends on Sanctum of Rall, you can also F-List me, Alveia.9603

My friends were on Borliss Pass, but they aren't super active so if we decide on a single server I have no problem swapping.

Made a thief. I'm still getting used to the graphic style and the UI. I very much dislike how stealth and thievery are implemented. Picking pockets apparently initiates combat and stealth only lasts for 3 sec. Are they like anti-thief or something? I like sneaking around and picking pockets.

If you focus on stealth play later on, it's all about dancing in and out of stealth in combat, which is actually a lot of fun, and quite different. I like it.

There isn't stealth like you're used to in other MMO's. Only a few skills will implement it and even then, it's usually only for a short period of time.

Pickpocket isn't like you think either. When used you will "steal" an ability based on the target type that you can use later on as a one-shot.

I've noticed that. I figured you were stealing a one-shot item to attack the mob with. Not exactly what I was looking for with a pick pocket ability. I always end up wanting to play a rogue/thief archetype like I was playing in a D&D game or one of the Thief games.

THIEF. Oh how I loved that series. Until 3. Ruined a perfectly good setting. Hopefully 4 will redeem it.

Damned Gold for Gems ratio is going up at just the right pace that I can't get my friggin increased bankslot!

On another note, I've done the Ascalon Catacombs (story mode) and after two attempts (one horrible group as no one would revive anyone) finally finished it and it was a blast! I then, after hitting 40, tried to get into the Caedecus's Manor we failed horribly. HORRIBLY. I'm starting to realize that the team dynamic is so vastly different than other games that I'm doubting that I'm doing my job right as a Guardian.

For instance, I'm specced for Toughness and Vitality (for survivability) and I have a Mace/Shield and Staff for what I normally use (though I've been toying with a Scepter/Focus if I could just find some). I would swap in and out of "tanking" and "supporting", but I never feel like I'm useful. Especially in the large group fights. Solo boss fights, not so bad... group fights it's usually over before I know what's really happening.

In Caedecus's Manor, there are quite a couple mass pulls (6+ mobs) and if I go in first as a tank, I can get them all on me. But then they just kick me around (literally) so much that I'm not able to hold their attention for very long. And it's frustrating when I am defeated (not downed) 4-5 times during these pulls just to finish that part.
