    Leveling Up and New Gear Sets a Punishment

    So at the start i thought oh i'll throw a little money into the game and open a couple sockets for my new lvl 35 pvp set, keeps me a little competitive for a little while.

    Now its almost time to wear my lvl 45 set that ive just +15'ed, but then i start thinking holy **** im going to have to spend out another £18 or so just to socket this new set to keep me competitive.

    Not only that but now im think just how dam greedy this games company is. Every new gear set i obtain while lvling up, i am going to have to do that same thing just to keep using what i have been in previous sets!

    This is a ridiculous amount of money to expect players to spend every 2 - 3 weeks when they get there next gear set.

    Sockets should be permanent items that you can put in and out of different items, not a ridiculous 1 time use for the price of them.

    I really do hate when reality of the cash shops kick in, in F2P game after the start off is so much fun.

    I am leveling from 45 to 55 right now. Takes me about 2 days per level. You forgot catacomb.
    the new ways of getting socket rod should make this discussion obsolete.

Bounty quests 20x 30k? still 600k a day. So please, dont tell people it will takes 2-3 weeks, cus thats nonsense ^^
    Ok hate to burst your bubble but your math is off. First 300k xp per badlands isn't going to happen. Even with a lvl 2 you are looking at prolly 220k exp per run so that's a little over 1 mil. The shadow crystal quest gives you about 350k per 2-3 days cause you will not get the shadow crystals per day to complete the quest everyday. The campaign runs do not give you 55k per run with the lvl 2 exp scroll...more like 40k and you don't have 200 stamina per day unless you buy stamina pots or earn them in the guild altar. You get 160 per day. So that's about 320k exp. Bounty quests if you have the oranges can yield about 60k. So if you get lucky and can do 20 of them per day that will give you what 1.2m? So lets do the math here. 1.1m+350k+320k+1.2m=about 2.8m exp per day if you are lucky. For lvl 48 I need 10m exp. So that's 5 days to lvl up assuming you get all that exp every day. Try again chief..

    Sigh... wanting to be on top all the time and don't want to continuously pay them? Who's the greedy one?
    If you want to punch more holes and stuff gems in your gears, feel free. Want to have full sockets on gears at all times? Pay up!
    Throwing money in at lower levels isn't worth it. Now you have seen the truth, don't cry about it.

    Indeed, this game does seem to take quite a bit of money in order to really make one's character(s) strong.

    I agree that something needs to be done about Socketing Rods. Right now I could use my four free Socketing Rods on my level 35 gear; however, now that we know a level 55 set is coming out, wouldn't it be better to wait and use them for that? That might take me quite a while; and in the meantime, while I wait to get up to that gear set, I have no way to socket any equipment and maximize my potential as a PVP'er. I am a non-paying player. I would LOVE to pay for this game, as I enjoy it quite a lot, and I would have no problems donating to the game to help it stay up and running; however, this economy sucks and there is no money to spare on the game. For people like me, we need some way to use more Socketing Rods; either by getting more Socketing Rods somehow or by making them re-usable in some way, shape, or form, like previous posters have mentioned.

    During my time here on the forum so far, Socketing Rods seem to be the main complaint/suggestion with players on this game. We can only hope that the staff of R2 notices our plight and does something about this to help balance things out. Things still wouldn't be totally balanced, as paying players can still use Balanes for lots of other things, but giving us the opportunity to be able to use more gems would level out the playing field a lot more than what it is now. IMO anyway.

    Why not make Socketing Rods available with insignias, in the Arena Shop? That way non-paying players can still put a lot of effort into getting them; it wouldn't be too easy and would still take quite some time to build them up, especially if it's something like 1000-1200 (the price may need to be discussed further) insignias for each Socketing Rod. I think that'd be fair, considering you would need at least five more socketing rods other than the four free ones you get. The price of the socketing rods would be high enough where paying players could still opt to use Balens to buy them so they can get them a lot sooner than the non-paying players. This would just give the non-paying players a slightly better chance at competing in PVP.

    I might post this in the suggestions forum and see what everyone else thinks of the idea.
