the things I buy weren't temporary. I've been -just about- to buy AP stuff for a couple weeks now, but then I think, it's only 30 days, and I go back to playing WoW because I dont want to make a new char, but I do want new clothes and a countersword now. When I play, I resort to renting, and I just wont get new clothes for a long time.
There any chance that S4 will ever let you buy permanent items? I really just can't bring myself to spend 20+ dollars just to get almost a full set of gear, and only for 30 days. It's just ridiculous.
Oh, and can someone tell me how those 80,000 pen bonus headphones work? it's 11.4k AP, but the pen bonus sounds..interesting? 80k PEN would probably buy me nearly all the stuff I still want (full PEN gear set with +stats, a countersword, and maybe a revolver or new skill). I'm assuming they aren't 7 day headphones that give you 80000 more pen per game that you win, so someone tell me what they actually do lol. Thanks.
buying AP stuff is temporary, because you CAN get permanent PEN stuff from the shop. you just need to get them from fumbi, who randomly gives you stuff, some permanent, some temporary, some upgraded, some colored...
basically buying AP items is just a way for players to temporarily get those items, until they can finally get them from fumbi. if i got 80k PEN i'd probably spend them with fumbi :3
who knows, he could probably give you a +5 revolver or something.
if AP items were permanent, not only alaplaya wouldn't make profits, but the game would be broken, giving AP users a great advantage over others. it wouldn't be fun anymore, so free users would leave, leaving only AP ones, and then having AP wouldn't be as exclusive... and then what would be the whole point of it?
Um, I'd settle for slightly better stats, or even the same +stats with just the looks of AP clothes (meaning it isn't an advantage over the free players). I just don't want to waste my money on temporary advantages. Besides, hardcore players will just pay the 20'ish bucks monthly anyway, meaning they're still better than the other players. It's not game breaking now, and it wouldn't be if the stuff was permanent either.
Why has no one said this? You CAN buy specific permanent weapons from the shop, they are just more expensive(27k-35kish) and need to be repaired every once in a while, but are still much cheaper in the long run. Just make sure when you do this that you get something you WILL use. When you buy an item, click the thing in grey and drag it down to the permanent option, that's it.
When a meteor comes to destroy us all, and people are scrambling for their lives, I'll be the one on a hill with a tennis racquet so at least I can say I tried.
