This actually made the technology section of the news on the BBC Red Button service!
@neonjohnYes, the one off Krol is low drop rate, and all of that, but saying 100% for an hour is greater benefit than 300% for an hour?I've farmed 2 of the Krol potions for my mage. Both times I got about 8 levels in that hour (leveled completely through outlands minus a few percent in 67).You pay, you get a lesser version guaranteed. You spend some time PLAYING you get a superior version. this is not pay-to-win. It's play-to-win.
GOD NO!Blizzard if u are making this a F2P game... it would be stupid as hell...Now it shall be like '' Haha i have more money than you so u suck and im the best'' @#$% i hate that. The same error at D3 and now on WoW plz, no if u do that i will Rage quit. :(
No your argument is invalid... its like ''Oh i got 10 lvl in 2 hr'' meanwhile another guy who waste his money say ''haha 20 lvl in 2 hr im so pro''.....more cash = more easy = more noobs = &*!@ty game...
I really don't understand how people make the connection:Buying XP boost from 85->90 == WoW is going F2P.That's ridiculous.Why hasn't it been the case that:Buying an extra account and using RaF == WoW is going F2p?Cheers.
This recently got me thinking......can I turn in my extra Lesser Charms for game time? Seriously, if there was an option to pay 100 Lesser Charms to get 1 extra day of game time, I'd be doing that.
Personally, I don't see lesser charms as a P2W. I'm exalted with all the pandaria factions and the small bits of valor from dailies are nothing compared to raiding, LFR, etc. I hate that if I want Mogu Runes of Fate, I have to do dailies for factions I'm already exalted with just to get the charms. Granted, now at least they also drop off lv90 mobs, so that helps a bit. But considering you can't get more than 3 runes a week anyway, I think it's still rather balanced. As for the exp, there's already a battle.net account-bound 300% exp potion off a rare in Dread Wastes. There's also a ridiculous amount of heirlooms now, guild perks that add experience, and the monk Enlightenment buff. So crying about people getting extra experience at this stage is childish.
I was recently asked to fill out a survey by Blizz and the questions that were asked would lead me to think that they are leaning towards making it free to play, with items you pay for. They asked about games such as League of Legends, Star Wars and Guild Wars, to name a few, and the questions were have you bought ingame items, how likely would you be to do so,and so forth. I could see it happening.
