Question: I noticed in the Trade Broker, that there is a "Pets" category. Any clues you can give us as to whether we will be getting pets anytime soon? If so, are they just for looks, or will they have some sort of a utility?
Knoxxer: That is probably a bug because as Avellar says we don't have pets anymore. That said we are looking at bringing a different type of pets back in the future.
^ Collectible pets maybe??? Obsessive collectors rejoice...or scream if they turn out to be garbage, class-based pets like Mystic's...
Premium skins for mystic pets, hehe.
Tera going f2p will make me very sad. ;_; All the new new costumes they release will be cash shop only, whoever pays the most will have the masterwork +12 items and no one else will, weapons will only look cool if you use a weaponskin from cash shop, etc.
Pay to enjoy/pay to win games are just miserable. At least in Tera now, everyone is on equal footing, you can do anything if you work hard enough for it. That'll all change with f2p and it'll make me very sad to see the game I actually love turn into just another cash shop ran crap fest. ;_;
Aww, c'mon, it's like being sad about how e-mail is going to phase (already has) out snail mail. For the last 6 months there has been an air of inevitability about all MMOs adopting some form of F2P formula. The recent interview with EAs COO put the final nail of that coffin. Just learn to accept every MMO within the next three years, probably sooner, will be F2P.
That is good news for the companies : they make bank. People go F2P because that's where the money is. It's bad for us players as consumers. But this is one of those things you have to leave to the wisdom of the capitalist market forces to ultimately adjust.
