you'll be able to get most of the items from the cashshop through normal playing i havent seen anything that would suggest that you could "pay to win" if they did do this they would loose a lot of support and i dont think they're going to risk it.

[edit]

i know someone posted pictures of items in the cashshop in this thread but i dont know how far back you would have to go to see it, if you find it you also need realize that whatever they have there could change nothing final.

From what i rmember the cash shop items are things like a boost to XP and Karma earned for 1hour and things that help with crafting and getting items from items that you destroy as well as dye colors and such. From what i saw none of the items there could help you to win anything, maybe lvl up faster ans get better items for/from crafting as well there being a bigger bag and something about a bank thing for when you arent in a city as well i believe

It looks like I'll be playing a Warrior. From what I've seen so far, this game looks really good.

Thats not to bad I guess, I dont like the sound of people paying to level up faster. But I can live with it. Any news on the next beta date or open beta yet.

When they say « At the end of the month », that mean the beta for prepurchasers could start any day at the end of the month, including the last day of this month.
But that is if they dont delay it for any reason, it could happen.

A lot of people have said the 20th, but I can't help but to think that they would have send out some information by now if that was the case.

Its not that big a deal, seeing as how the boosted XP only lasts for 1 hour anyway, Plus im sure they will have the Log out in a Inn and get "Rested" XP boost as well

If I'm not mistaken, those XP boosts also only counted on killed mobs and not for quests/dynamic events. Since most of XP gain will come after completing events and what not, these XP boosts would have minimal effect.

Also, the gemshop URL was accessible shortly after pre-purchase went up and after logging in everyone noticed that they removed said boosts from the gem shop. All speculation and everything is subject to change but just thought I'd throw that out there.

I wouldn't worry about the cash shop, it's not pay to win. Everything in shop you supposedly can get in other ways. (mind you, considering the gear treadmill works 100% differently - I doubt you'd even be able to buy /much/ power). As far as the next beta goes, as others have stated all we know is 'end of the month'. Soon enough!
