Pay to win? (your opinion)
I would like to try this game out but I feel that many Perfect World games have a few "Pay To Win" elements. Does this game require you to pay if you want to thrive and if so how? If you have to pay to win at PvP or get certain Armors I might still play since I'm not huge in PvP, but if it's very dependent on Pay to Win for everything then I think I won't. Please answer and give me your personal opinion, thank you. :)

You can do pretty good in this game without paying but you have to work harder to get better. I like the challenge. But if you want to be extremely good real fast then yes you have to pay in order to pvp. A lot of people pay a lot of money to do great in pvp. There are a lot of things in the game that try to get you to pay but you really don't have to. It just makes the game more of a challenge if you don't. I don't pay and I do pvp a lot and I still think it's a lot of fun.

And if you don't do pvp then no. You can get really good armor without paying real money. I get really good armor all the time on my characters. It also helps to be a part of a really helpful and fun guild as well.

EpicShieloh Jan 21, 2013 @ 12:28pm 
Yea. Your steam account won't work if you try and log into Forsaken World. You have to make an account on their website. www.perfectworld.com

mgrah3723, if you get on the east storm server, I can get you into my guild (: They're really helpful. You can add my steam account and let me know when you made your character (:
EpicShieloh Jan 21, 2013 @ 12:29pm 
Plus, the storm server is a pve server so you don't have to worry about pvp

You want to PvP without at least 9/12 armor, lvl 3 gems, and 60/40 mastery/resists? (All available exclusively from the shop or by playing the Auction House to buy it from other players, who get it from the shop.) You're setting yourself up for disappointment.

This game is Player vs. Cashshop. The whole game revolves around gaming the cash shop. You have been warned.

Not really. I haven't really used cash shop except to get fashion or a mount and I've done just fine and I'm not the least bit disappointed. I also don't do pvp unless it's arena and I only do that for the soul leaves you get first time. I've been playing this game for 2 years and I haven't paid money except on my main which is a level 74. And again, that was only on fashion and my mount. mgrah stated they don't want to do pvp so they don't have to really spend cash on the game. You can get really good armor and gems from instances and using gem shards that you can get out of Shylia's Market.

Dont blame poor skills on the game
EpicShieloh Jan 23, 2013 @ 11:10pm 
Exactly. I only ever paid real money to get fashion or a mount. I do pvp just fine when I go into the arenas. I definitely am sticking to this game.

Contrary to belief, this is player vs cashshop. Doing good without it requires luck and perhaps a bit of leaching. Doing good in it requires levelling up to much higher levels where the instances and Shylia rewards give you much better bonuses. Currently Forsaken World's reward system as per level is extremely good in my opinion. Basically, if you want to do good, level up. It's the basis for both battle of the immortals and war of the immortals, for both whom I have level 110+ players. The rewards get much better endgame, and when you get something good, you can start by selling them for easy/ a lot of money. It took me a long time to rise as a player on either of the games, but the effort was really worth it.

The only way that noobs like you can win is to pay with their fathers money, learn how to play and be ♥♥♥♥ing pride of yourself.
