Any chance the game will ever be less platinum based?

As the title says, seems VR is following in otm’s footsteps by already revealing that the new pets will come from chests as well.

This is a real bummer. I was hoping that content like these would be more quest based or even may be loot of some kind of event boss. E.g. a halloween event boss and it’s minions drop some kind of dust you can turn in at the vendor eventually for a pet.

Then there may be special weekend events in which you can collect items to upgrade your pet. To me this seems more enticing than flashing your credit card.

Same goes for Haste elixers. They are a key item in every end-game raid. Yet only obtainable trough chests. It would be nice if there would be a non-platinum variant on this. So bottom line, it would be nice if VR could make these items supplemental on in-game content rather than platinum items serving as a primary source to kill bosses or get in-game content.

Would like to know VR’s point of view on this

I don’t have a problem with it being plat based. A company has to make money. Especially an mmo. In order to get the updated we want they have to have revenue.

There’s food as a consumable to increase your DPS.

Rogues don’t really benefit from haste effects too much as their weapons are almost capped anyway, and rangers do have a sled boost alternative in Rapid Shot. I don’t think it’s something that needs to be changed.

im fine with it plat based, the people buying plat are the once running the game, if there was an alternative way to get tokens and lixes people would just stop.

Plus u got bounties now and daily rewards

VR will follow in otms footsteps a little because as a new company they are scared to take risks, but I would love if they took our feedback and actually implemented it, it’s very unfair that otm left many problems for them to fix such as unity update.

Honesty, in the past 3 months they have already implemented more feedback based adjustments that what was done in the past year. As a community we will always have another change that is needed to make the game the best it could be, its a never ending battle, each adjustment allows us to mentally and emotionally move on to our next complaint and we all have our ideas as to how to make the game better.

VR has been very transparent in telling us that they are not going to try to tackle anything big until they get the Unity Servers up, I believe them. In management sometimes you have to let some fires burn so you can adjust your strategy to have things in place to prevent fires from starting instead of constantly putting out fires.

Pretty sure this idea has been suggested like fifty bajillion times, but
Put Extra Hotbar Slot Items in the Bounty Shop or make them tradable and drop from chests.

Those hotbar items are literally one of the few items that makes having plat an absolute necessity. All the other plat items(lixes, idols, books) are easily tradable from chests, but Hotswaps slot you specifically need plat if you want to have more than 8 stuff to press. Sure, plat is obtainnable through Chests and doing ads, but it definitely adds a level of complexity and annoyance to an item that should be easily accessible.

Please please please please please make hotbar slots achievable in a way not reliant on platnium. It used to be alot easier to get a couple which helped MASSIVELY with offers but those arent available.

Ehhh rogue dagger speed almost 2k. With haste that's a lot of extra speed and a lot of extra damage done on a raid boss over a 10-20 minute course. But players could easily grab a very small amount of plat and just buy the super hastes which are cheap and not worry about the heroic hastes.
