And i have yet to have any crashes in game. So if you are contantly crashing...fix your computer. The only issues i have are with the no auto-targeting which is kind of annoying...and no target toggle button....also the issue with the client downloader saying you have corrupted files all the time that you bypass by pressing the verify button and then canceling formthe verify. But aside from that...no you dont have to pay to win at all....I am not sure what you would pay for.....someone mentioned crafting materials...hate to point this out....but you can buy all of it from vendors in game....you also get awarded the items. As for pvp pay to win....well then you are a complete ♥♥♥♥♥ if you have to pay to win....people who pvp you have to expect they played alot and have alot of stuff.....so yeah you wont be on even ground with someone who has played a long time. And it wont matter how much you buy from a cash shop either...you do have to actualy play this game.And if you actualy play you probably wont have to spend much in the cash shop.I played for 3 days...and had alot of interesting things i ran into....but after sticking with some quests I found there are tons of things that give you free things in game.By the thrid day i not only had a mount and free equipment that was better then what people sell onthe auction house but i had enough cash i didnt have to worry about alot of stuff. The only issues i have right now are getting the actual non-soul money...which takes a bit more time to get. But thats convertible to cash shop money.....Which brigns up the only other trouble i have had so far....they give you so much free stuff...that they tell you whom to go to to turn it in....which lies the problem....their actual map and ability to find Non-player characetrs is a bit troublesome. For the life of me i could not find sophia to turn in this stuff i got for reputation...finally after typing in one letter and scrolling through lists i found her....literally around the corner from where i was....but again thats not a big issue.And again.....i think most of the people on this thread are exactky the type of fish these companies look for to reel in. They have you all convinced you have to pay to win....and stupidly some of you think you need specifc items all the time and have become so lazy that you wont actualy figure out how to get things automatically.And on another note...they do have a suscription you can do....in the cash shop thing you will notice they have what are called VIP cards....these last for one month...having one opens up other parts of the game for you for free..including more free items.Coincidentaly you dont have to actualy use real cash to get cash shop cash so its possible to get the membership for free....you would probably have to spend maybe 4 hours to do so.Thats doing the gold quest 4 times.If you are super lazy they have these parts inthe game where you simply leave your characetr somewhere....and they auto-get exp.....dont ask me about it....like i said i have only played for 3 days.
