    it's not dead, more of like a slow decline. it is p2w in a certain aspect, many will argue with me but if you don't have 5+ alt level 65's that already have mid tier gear to farm on for a month strait it will require some emp>gold exchanges to speed up the gearing process. end game is fun, kind of. it's fun if you don't spam it all day everyday. but that's all anyone ever does in this game anymore then they come here to complain about how boring the game is.

    Well, If you are a healer then I can concur with you with that 5 account need.

    As a tank or DPS I think that with only one character is enought to ger you up with middle and even BiS gear in the first or second month of each patch. I know some healers that have their deathwrack weapon +15 and now are with armor chest enchanting and getting crafting mats for the rest of their deathwrack gear. And the second month hasn't finished yet.

    Right now is a decent time to hop back in, it will give you time to get used to the game and get some decent gear (gearing is easier than ever, actually..) before the 20-man raid comes out.
    People say it's p2w, and you can spend money to more or less skip gearing, but it's effectively trading purchased costumes for in game items; there's nothing stopping you from getting full BiS gear while remaining completely free to play.
    The end game content right now is pretty decent, though there will be a significant learning curve for you as a player who hasn't experienced the last few patches.

    unfortunally you will see bad surprise, we lost alliance, nexus, alchemy is useless, all your potion is useless, charm too, you cant use anymore your firecamp, we cant go to baldera anymore and we lost our island of dawn :)

    but at least we get flying bacon, a new zone, a cutest elin and our sky has new moons :)

    no, never, the reason is very simple, YOLO

    If you play healer p2w isn't even relevant to you, Misery gear is more than enough for every content as healer.

    Go ahead. There are some players (Like myself) who still really love this gam, even if it's not at the glory that it once was.
    I still find endgame content to be fun, I don't find it p2w by any means, and there are still very active players around

    The only thing with a p2w wall is 2.0 draconis pasive from casino dragons, but even that wall is not so big to not being able to get one of those mounts for your self.

    I have to say that now more than ever is a game were a casual can try to catch up with veterans gear wise but they need to put an extra effort and not a lot of effort as 4 years back in the past.
  • 1: Game is not dead. (if it is in a slow decline, I don't know, I'm not that observant and I just came back) MT is a very busy server, TR isn't far behind. CH and AV are good if you like a slightly smaller population and I honestly know nothing about FF.

    2: Is pay for convenience, as always. If you're in a hurry, yes, you can pay to speed things up. If you aren't or just don't care, you don't need to, you'll get there eventually.

    3: Endgame content being fun is likely subjective. I find it fun, lots of other people do, plenty don't and like to complain. Kinda the way it goes in an MMO *shrugs*

    It is true that, as a healer, you won't need to do NEARLY as much gearing. I can't say personally but it's what I've been told by others I've talked to as I was thinking about leveling a priest or hopping on my mystic. Makes it less pay for convenience and then, if you want to level up lots of alts, you can farm and sell and do whatever it is people with lots of alts do. (Not sure, I also just came back like...a month? Two months ago? And I'm kinda slow)
