Me and a friend are considering jumping into an MMO.
Played EQ2 a while ago, like years ago as a maxed out char. I actually know the game, so I don't need an overview. As far as interests go, well, it'd be a casual few hours a night thing we'd be running around to have fun, on a PvP server (we like PvP).
But from what I'm reading, even downloading the free version and rolling new toons, should you want to start PvP'ing or whatnot, or crafting, and actually be a little competitive, you better throw down some real money or else you're screwed.
Is this accurate? How much would you say casuals need to spend to actually enjoy the game, looking past the F2P charade, and how best would it be spent?
It was either this, or the 21-day EVE buddy trial, where I know that if we like that, it's just going to be a flat monthly fee to continue.
