    Default Planar Fragments

    Planar fragment system for 4.0 seems very interesting. I heard from some old players from Rift that are intrigued about playing the game again now.

    Intrigued enough to spend £30.49 to try it out?

    Man, you gotta stop it. They made a decision to make new xpack B2P, you don't like it, but many others do. You'd be surprised that for some it is actually the main reason to come back.

    Barring any hidden p2w, planar fragments and all new gear related systems look good to me.

    Whereas I know of another EU guild that folded this week, with this expansion being the reason that around 50% of them decided to stop playing.

    I have seen the exact opposite on the NA servers. I have seen a couple who "claim" to be quitting but continue to play every day.

    On the topic of the Planar Fragments these looks really cool and I like some of the new ideas for equipment progression coming out in this expansion.

    -> for free Vox mount, get any toon in trove to level 20 ...

    The price wasn't the problem in their opinion. A lot are happy about the b2p aspect of the new expansion. There was concern that ear ring slots should become free after 4.0 though.

    The key factor is where PW:W and Earring slots fall into place. Even if they can be obtained by grinding again in-game, they should still be included in the expansion purchase.

    If you look in the services tab in the rift store you can see that both of these items can be bought for 50 K void stones each. This change has been in place for a few weeks now. Since most people have void stones in the hundreds of thousands and new players can get them coming out of the starting zones, and they are practically falling from the sky if you do storyline quests and nmr's, I can't really see much of a problem for any player to obtain these items in a relatively short time frame.

    The point of the argument is that maintaining the "freemium" system while claiming yourself to be "buy to play" is deceptive and exploits their consumers.

    There are many players that still don't trust Trion to commit to an actual "buy to play" model and are afraid they will continue to use micro-transactions on top of charging for the expansion.

    Agreed. I think Rift should follow the formula of some other older mmos and just have the current expansion for b2p and the previous ones should become f2p.
