    I didn't renew my sub when GTT came out.
    Didn't feel right to think that people could match my character progression when I was grinding hours a day and they weren't.

    This is my understanding, please verify:
    For the most part, I can just sell GTT in bulk, progress my character, and hardly play while keeping up with everyone.

    What about the people selling them and grinding?
    Are they considerably ahead at this point?

    It seems more worth it to go work an hour irl and buy multiple GTT for that hour of work than to grind for less overall resources/gold in the same amount of time.

    Am I wrong?
    I'd love to be lazy af and hardly have to grind.

    Grinding an hour in game efficiently will be more profitable than working a $20 an hour job.

    During the day I would grind solo for the most part. Never came close to that solo.
    Even duo.

    meditation is extremely slow and can only progress 1 stat/skill/spell at a time.. character progression wise, it will always be better grinding ingame for gains than solely relying on meditation

    That being said, GTT sellers will have an advantage when it comes to skilling up via scrolls.. it is significantly cheaper though to grind spells out on mobs though

    building a bank and/or grinding crafting will favour the GTT sellers though

    The guys doing this are probably working 40+ hrs a week. If I had more time to play then I might feel bad about buying GTT, but it's the only way to keep up and still enjoy the game.

    Also they're barely selling for 12k right now, I've gotten the impression it isn't hard to make that much in an hour (what would I know I don't farm gold lol).

    depends what I'm farming. If I'm going hard yes I can easily make over 20k an hour.

    this thread is a joke right ? i almost dignified it with an actual response but then i realized it has to be a troll attempt. no1 can possibly be alive with an IQ low enough to generate a thread like this. simple breathing would be way beyond an individuals brain capacity at this point.

    8/10. you almost had me.

    I'd break your arm irl. You're not tough. Nor are you intelligent enough to use proper punctuation.

    Got a job, thanks. I'm a fighter. What I said stands. Go play your game and be tough in there where you can be.

    I'm talking to a nerd behind a computer desk.

    If you want to waste tons of irl $ on some stats in a mmo that could die in a couple months on some frontloaded stats that make you do like 5% more per hit be my guest.

    cuz the fact is people will buy gold ingame anyway, might aswell make it so I can also sub with my gem gold and have it help BPG.

    so overall im fine with it, if they want to put more time / effort (by way of wasting their cash) for a slight benefit that I could get if I actually spent time in game its w/e. Its not like they are buying a permanent haste or something mega op. They are saving a little time on grinding stats that got nerfed.

    I considered that too. Like it's a bad investment to just be a casual. If the game were certain to thrive and I didn't want to play a new upcoming full loot sandbox, then I'd be more likely to sink my money in.

    Ahhh you can't go from 1-100 in any magic school from just scrolling so people are still forced to grind....a lot. Edit well you might be able to for lesser but that's not going to help you much.

    I'd agree, except destros completely change that.
