I'm liking the game so far, combat and so forth. Enjoy that they have a good balance of companions yet still open world with other players. But it's like near everything of worth is behind some massive amount of AD or Zen.
I understand that it's a free game, so funds have to roll in some how... but some things just seem off balanced here... So the idea is that if you pay for it it only makes the act easier, so it's not any great advantage. Just time and space (are any bags purchasable with just Gold?), I get it. If this is the model I can see why people have been begging to keep subscription models. And what was ever wrong with a daily subscription model? Like buy 30-"Days" and only have a day deducted when you play? (That's a total other question).
Anyway, main question is, is the only way for me to get bags and teleport scrolls and mounts etc. available through AD or Zen? If not how else Can I secure them? Also, if everything of seeming importance is mainly behind these two models, what's the point of gold? Just for the bare stuff like pots etc? Newbie asking questions I'm sure have been answered to death, but I just keep finding heated discussions and no straight answers. Thanks in advance.
