    I respect the attempt to reduce grind elements of the game. COTS were a continuing annoyance, and just as often, a source of disappointment when the item you took so long to obtain cots for turned out to be trash.

    I like the move towards enhancing currency use in the game. The first video i watched had the new premium vendor with a 5000 gold mount. Please ensure the rate for gold drops matches the increased need.

    This overall seems to be a positive move for F2P and to remove elements of the game that lead to tedium.

    One item you did not clarify is the cost of travel for premium members. Was that benefit also removed or will it remain since it will now cost gold to travel instead of anderment?

    too much to cope in a moment ... so will see when it's live.

    2 things I'm afraid for :
    1) will the enchantments still be the same now identifying is free ?
    2) crafting will cost gold or ander ... just wondering how muc

    What is positive for F2P?
    25% more honor points for premium users is positive for F2P?
    Free daily gifts for premium users are positive for F2P?
    Free unique items for premium users are positive for F2P?
    Buying knowledge books is positive for F2P?
    No CoT ... but they didnt said with what to ID uniques (only improved to legendary items are free to ID)... which will be 100% andermants ... that is positive for F2P?
    Crafting items on workbench for gold and andermants is positive for F2P?

    Getting rid of the cots is the best thing I've heard in my 7 months of playing... Thank you for that..

    Increasing the drops and gems, will be a good thing also. Thank you for that.

    It would be nice to know what the new crafting fees will be.

    I also wonder if the enchantments would or might be effected by this new release.

    And despite the daily complaining you still play.... so obviously you haven't found a better game.

    I didn't say all advantages went away, I said it was a positive move.

    The advantages of paying for the game must have some benefit otherwise, there would be no game. So the things you list give an advantage, but are not game breaking advantages.

    The main reason people pay money in the game is to speed up development of their toons and to make it game play easier. Pre R139 things like auto pickup, free travel, and ID of pink and lower items sped up development and general enjoyment. So now, that is not an advantage for P2P.

    25% honor increase, ok now it will take 3 months instead of 4 to reach whatever rank. Oh wait mentor bonus is what, 200%? Are we going to complain about people that have been playing a long time having an advantage over new folks? Just silly.

    Free gifts? We all get them. Now premium will get 1 extra. One of them may rarely be an outdated unique. A unique that anyone playing this game as long as we have, has likely already gotten and melted 2 or 3 times. But that box also drops from regular mobs, not an advantage for P2P.

    Buying books of knowledge? We all got them and have the opportunity to buy them with R139. A P2P will just make it happen faster if they choose to.

    We'll see about how to ID Uniques, i didn't see that mentioned.

    I didn't see anywhere that ander was used to craft, it specifically said gold. That is neither an advantage or disadvantage for P2P since you can't buy gold.

    The biggest step I saw as a move for F2P was ID'ing gear. Before a free to play had to farm cots where a P2P could just buy them. And we all know it's all about the gear.

    We will never have a complete balance between F2P and P2P. But these moves IMHO take away some of the inherent advantages P2P held before.

    On the video, they did indicate that the crafting bench could be activated with either copper/silver/gold or andermant.

    The amounts are, obviously, what everyone wants to know :)

    Well, im mildly P2P, mostly through premium but some ander. There has to be some benefit to being P2P, otherwise BP needs to find another revenue model to pay the programmers for new game content. The 25% more honor is not game breaking; ot just means that the f2p needs to pvp 25% more to keep pace.

    Since COTs are gone, I think uniques get id'd for free. Guess I will be id'ing the ring of fortitude, amulet of insight and leviathan weapon that i currently have stashed in my characters. And i guess i will also blind craft and stash any unidentified legendaries for free identifying in the future, post update.

    my concern is this:if i buy an item from the premium merchant Emilia when my premium account will end, will i be still able to use this item or it will be not active untill i buy premium again?
    if we will be able to use these items permanantely after buying them then i think this merchant is a great move from bigpoint.

    infortunately, I was unable to see any of the above videos, therefore I will have to wait until I experiance first hand the positives and any recommendations for change. I am happy for the *non-premium* players. Who are worthy of sharing the freedom to enjoy no longer having to stop and pic stuff up and use cots.

    Obviously GOLD will now be the important factor.. Interesting :)

    I love this :) The main reason is that I have many accounts (this primarily goes way back to the days when only one character was allowed per account. This games design has never been very good for someone like me who likes to have many characters in RPG's.

    Many of these accounts are not premium, F2P or started with a single small ander purchase (around $20.) Because of the amount of time needed for farming to progress the characters they all stalled out over a year ago. Now at the very least I can get them back into my regular DQ rotation.

    I could get into a lot of detail about how at least some of these changes will benefit all of my toons. I'll just leave it at I am one very player who is looking forward to sticking with this game for some time to come :cool:

    Luck be with ye,

    Where did you see 1 CoT = 2 andermant? That's a EDIT rip-off especially because many of us have bought CoT's and they cost a lot more than 2 ander a piece.

    The fact that All above posters are P2P (except two) and they like this change .... shows how much this is positive for a F2P players.
    Me complaining? I give feedback on daily basis EDIT for 3 years.
    I am F2P player and helping the DSO community and asking nothing in return. I help almost 24/7.
    I haven't been looking for another game .... and you are talking about "better" game ... you who started playing this game just recently ... one who was screaming for help to make a decent toon ... and got help from F2P players?
