Recent Dark Pattern Reviews

Playing by Appointment reported on Oct 14, 2020
The Hunt Expeditions add this somewhat, you have to use the lead before it expires. The Sanctuary has light Harvesting mechanics that may be collected at any time.
Daily Rewards reported on Oct 14, 2020
Login bonuses, free daily summon(s), daily quests
Grinding reported on Oct 14, 2020
Random Variable Rewards are employed with equipment drops that are never exactly what you need. There are also numerous currency sinks that require players to spend more time grinding currency for in-game tasks. A notable one is the gold fee to unequip gear, which limits players and penalizes experimentation.
Infinite Treadmill reported on Oct 14, 2020
Equipment stats are random, so players must make many attempts to customize their stats and the result is never truly perfect for PvP.
Pay to Win reported on Oct 14, 2020
Molagora packs are by far the worst, but the most valuable purchases are energy and Liefs to keep grinding.
Social Obligation / Guilds reported on Oct 14, 2020
Guilds can be quite casual or quite competitive.
Invested / Endowed Value reported on Oct 14, 2020
Account buying and selling is a huge deal for characters, but equipment is also needed with high Speed pieces and reforges being incredibly valuable.
Recurring Fee reported on Oct 14, 2020
The Monthly Pack grants a small advantage to players willing to pay on a recurring basis.
Gambling / Loot Boxes reported on Oct 14, 2020
The Gacha mechanic, Moonlight and Mystic packs
Power Creep reported on Oct 14, 2020
Hello reforging
