i do not care about t1-t2 honing. it’s a non issue. i think around 8k gold will get you straight from t1 to t2 and it might be 1.5x that for t2, not counting shards but if you have a few of those shard boxes they give out saved that’s a non issue too.
the huge issue for when I want to create an alt is the world quests. I don’t have the time or energy to play those 4 hour long quests for each region again. you can skip rohendel and feiton but then you can’t knowledge transfer the regions after them. and the amount of times you have to complete the quests to knowledge transfer is ludicrous anyways.
we DESPERATELY need paid powerpasses. even just paid feiton powerpasses, the only quest I can tolerate is punika really since there’s not too many annoying quests, no sthpid transformation quests.
regardless, in a game centered around alts, I shouldn’t be forced to replay the story just so I can progress my characters (alts are absolutely fundamental unless you want to be just 1460 by the time brelshaza comes out).
Assuming you used feiton power pass. With the new punika power pass releasing you should have the 3 characters needed to knowledge transfer 3 more characters to punika assuming your main is in punika and the feiton powerpass also completes punika.
Paid powerpassed are still a thing in Kr. It was announced in the patch where it was removed that it is being reworked and will be re-introduced with a better system. It’s only temporarily disabled in Kr and is still available in Ru/Jp.
those “some bags” u get in T2 isnt that much. i pushed a t1 char 2-3 weeks ago and with stronghold buff i need somewhat around 150.000++ Shards. Did Tower + had some shard boxes left from the island… it was painfull getting him from t2 to T3. More than from 1302 to currently 1405.
