Unless you pay, you need to do the same low level locations over and over in order to get materials to replace your gear. Because your gear breaks. Fast.
Premium Currency reported on Sep 17, 2022
It is not so "in your face" as most games imo but Thalers are a thing.
Pay to Win reported on Sep 17, 2022
Very much. You need to work hard in order to get even the most basic cheap armour and weapons or just buy metal plate straight from the start.
Wait To Play reported on Sep 17, 2022
There is an energy bar and it replenishes with either time or money.
