    Default Eldevin, any good?

    So, I played Eldevin for maybe half an hour last night and it seems rather fun. (Felt a lot like the old runescape, with some nice upgrades)

    My only concern is the cash shop. Has anyone else played this further than I have and know whether or not the cash shop ruins the game? I wouldn't mind paying for the subscription but I really don't like how they seem to sell gold for real money. I hope I read it wrong, but maybe not.

    I PM'd you about that but I'll post here for others too;

    The cash shop in Eldevin is pretty well balanced, there's nothing really pay-to-win in it. You can't buy armor or weapons in the cash shop. It sells things like increased XP gain potions, vanity pets, and inventory slot bags. Basically, stuff to make your PvE life a bit easier, nothing that remotely unbalances PvP whatsoever.

    You can buy gold, yes, but the only things to spend gold on are new skills from skill trainers (and you have to be a certain level for certain skills, you can't just buy 1000 gold and have a super-jacked character), health potions, and maybe buying crafted stuff from other players.

    great game. without a doubt. only game i spent money on in years. But wait until you need to do dungeons. you will be waiting for hours, and even days sometime. If you are offered a party, please do so and take it because you most likely wont be able to get one again for a good while.


    Love the game but stopped playing due to low population. if it ever gets on steam Ill be back though

    I did notice the population was a little low. Oh well, it will keep me entertained for a few days at least I guess

    Just started playing this after checking out Romgor's sig. It really does have that good old RS vibe while staying relevant to my interests, with the talent trees and all. Currently I'm level 5 trying to get my professions going primarily prospecting/crystal cutting/jewelry, hoping jewelry is a more niche/less populated trade.

    I'm probably going to go nuts with the talents and come out with some awkward crud build because I like being unorthodox lol.

    IGN Is Niamh, I'm usually on Zephyr (EST server). (not at the moment since Zephyrs having some server trouble, but characters carry over to whatever server so...)

    goodluck. Also professions are not a good way to make money. sadly the best way to make money is simply AoE grinding/spamming dungeons. due to low populations the demand for crafted items of course will be rather low.

    That's fine, I haven't particularly needed money yet anyway and I'm not interested in any expensive event items or anything. As for the population, it will either rise or the game will die so that's not really a problem either. Now I'm kinda stoked since people may not be gunning professions for those very reasons making grinding them a possible huge investment later as the game updates, especially if I nestle into a niche one.

    Thanks for the info.

    This game is crazy addictive! Something about it....not sure what. It really reminds me of early Runescape days. Definitely doesn't have the population it needs. I think once this game hits steam it will take off. They still have lots of things to fix, but the developers are doing a really good job with everything. I actually just became a supporter for the game I like it so much. I recommend it!

    Thats what keeping me from playing. I have wasted so much time and money on indie games in the past where they ALL failed that im so worried to keep investing in this one. Great game without a doubt, but if it doesnt get the population increase then it wont be enjoyable. Nothing is more annoying then trying to do your dungeon quests and you're waiting for hours/days to get a party going. I was one of the first level 40s and I have never ran the level 30 dungeon... and I've waited over a month to finally run the level 40 dungeon.

    These are the same guys behind fallen sword, i doub it will go under easily.

    I think the game is pretty interesting, pretty well made for a browser mmo and even some dl mmos fail to it. Not feeling it's for me though, but keep having you guys.

    The best spells in the game can't be bought unless you're a subscriber?
