but the people who play day-to-day may have a different answer. after all, if you have normal gear or lvl10 skill levels, a few extra stat points won't make you a super-sayan, I don't care what anyone says.
it bothers me a little when I get looks of puzzlement from other players like "how come you don't do this as well?" thing, not everyone has the ability to pump thousands of dollars into a supposedly free game.
as always, its only the elite few (ie: cash/coin shoppers, beta farmers, frost sellers (which could also be any of the first two...)) who will benefit most from this new system, and as always they will prostitute it to death as they do frost now. us 'daily' normal players will still struggle, strive, and stretch to reach minor goals while mamas' boys and no-lifers-with-money continue to take advantage of what is quickly becoming a 'pay-to-win' game.
anyway, that's my thought on the expansion and its' effect on the game, What do you think?
