“It’s important to us that players have a path to acquire items from our in-game store without spending real money. Nearly every store item can be acquired with Crystals, available by trading Gold through the player-run Currency Exchange. Items acquired with Royal Crystals are also tradable through the player-to-player Market. The Market allows the community to play an active role in the valuation of items and makes the economy within Arkesia highly flexible— letting players trade items as they see fit. Through these avenues, nearly all items are available in exchange for in-game, earnable currencies (with a few account-level exceptions, such as name changes).”
“It’s always our goal for in-game purchases to be (and feel) optional, and for players to feel encouraged to progress at whatever pace they’re comfortable with.”
Please allow players to expand their roster for free via IN-GAME MEANS. Without doing so, these quotes are a direct contradiction to what was said in the June Update.
No player should feel pressured to either pay for a slot with real currencies or to delete characters to play new classes being released.
With Arcanist just around the corner, now would be THE best time to allow players this freedom of choice, expand their rosters and spend time enjoying the game without feeling they have lost progress, time and resources.
