I present to you the signs of a p2w items, buy able loot. And they have the items from the new harder instance. First we had OP costumes that make costume brawls a joke. Now we have buy able loot.
  • The Consortium Chest has been added to the gem store in the Consumable category for 250 gems each or 10 for 1800 gems. No key is required to open these chests; simply double-click them in your inventory.
    • When you open the Consortium Chest, you will receive some number of crafting materials and one random item.
    • Some items in the chest include: shoulder skins, breathing masks, weapon skins, hats, and minis.
    • All items in the chest are new and have never been available before.
    • Weapon skins are rare, and the minis are very rare.
    • All items can be sold on the Trading Post.
    • The Consortium Chest will only be available for a limited time.
  • All the items found in the Consortium Chest can also be obtained as rare drops from any creature from the new Lost Shores event.
What will nexon put in the store next?

In every MMO, people who spend real life money, whether it be through legitimate or illegitimate RMT, will always have an advantage. This has been the case ever since RMT existed.

So far, the gem store doesn't offer any stat advantages. Fair enough I say.

The items from the chest are SKINs. People complained the halloween skins were chest only, and now that they can be dropped you complain it's pay2win to be able to buy things in the store that are drops?

Wait, so people can use gems to buy chests containing items whose only use is to sell for gold. How, exactly, is this different than trading gems for gold? You know, the system that's been in place since the start?

You really need to look up what "p2w" means.

Because we don't already have a thread for this over here: http://www.guildwars...nsortium-chest/ or heck, even here: http://www.guildwars...-november-15th/. Please use existing threads instead.
