  1. Hi guys, I love your show, but in my opinion you could not be more wrong on the topic of micro transactions.

    I cannot immagine that items are for sale, thus this would defeat the point of the game

    The main point would probably be things like vanity items like global server shououts, xp boosters, faster travel etc
    (dont understimate this, most f2p mmos run mainly on these reusable vanity items)

    Secondly there is also the possibility, that you can access all the content you bought at release, although the new content will be sold (macrotransaction) in “adventure” packs for small prices, e.g. for 10 buck you get 20 quests with 1 raid instance all arround one main story theme/line.

    Keep up the good work!
