Again with the WP fees.
I don't know. Honestly. I'm playing TOR right now. There are flight fees. One to travel between planets, and another to shuttle to different locations. some of them are impossible to walk/mount across as they are of a different zone.
1 daily there can reward me with enough gold/credits to run 20 of these way points. Each daily turn in rewards with another 20 runs worth of way points.
But the cost of items is high. You can even buy certain vanity items exclusive to the in game store using your credits. People don't mind when you are throwing money at exclusive items. Some drops are also pretty rare, to the point people farm them and jack up the prices. It is OK to do that since it is a rare and exclusive skin. It is cosmetic.
But making people do something which is not interesting to them just to earn gold for travel fees is tiring.
Simple analogy, in physical ed class: The teacher says run until i say stop, or the teacher says run 10 laps.
Its a mental analogy. You are faced with redundant thoughts, why is he making us run, how many laps do i need to complete, should i go slow and take it easy, if i take it easy is he going to punish those slow runners? But if given a clear objective, after 10 laps im done with this mundane crap and i can do whatever i want.
It would be fine with WP costs. But making it a gold sink by itself is like saying you need to play it my way to travel. Thank god there arent any WP costs in WvW. And repairs costs are minimal, if you zerg objectives since each objective actually nets you ~2 silvers.
Back on topic.
The guild mission is shaping up to be awesome. If it is interesting enough I might even log in regularly. But I doubt I can convince my 8 other friends to come back at this juncture. We had a strong guild of 19 people and now the 4 who log in don't even represent the guild anymore lol. I don't even feel like running another alt yet I already got 2 other alts on swtor. Each play through feels different, and messing around with the legacy system is pretty fun as well. Meh less about tor and more about this junk.
I really really hope they get this shit right.
