Secondly, you are only level 6. The game changes imo for the worst once you hit 30. The first 30 levels are balling then when you hit 30 it switches over to raids, duos, alerts and skill farming. If you enjoy those thing, it is a great game.
Either ways, the game isn't play to win. The last time I played it wasn't since PvP gear isn't restricted by how much money you spend and the speed of PvP armor I believe isn't bound by payment.
