    Lower levels are cheaper of course but once established 50 a month is plenty to maintain a high activity level if you play wisely. (Thats my personal budget for the last 5+yrs and I am worth more than the sum of them all)
    so if I wanted to start this game and be half-decent I'd need to drop around $50 a month? Game seems interesting but I'd never be able to afford that.
    Currently Playing: Mabinogi
    Let me know if you wanna play too!

    It all depends on play style, motivation, and real life skills.

    If interested I could discuss strategies for whatever budget you wanted.

    Depends on what you mean by "Half-decent" do you mean be in the top-tier? Or do you mean just have fun? Just having fun, you could probably get buy with an initial investment of $60 and then $15 a month after that, similar to any other p2p MMO. I put in $20 and had a decent amount of fun, but (like I always say) the over-all feeling of the game being a giant slot machine put me off. Perhaps if I had gotten into the more player-controlled stuff, such as merchanting/crafting/trading/etc... rather than mining I would have felt different. Hunting I wouldn't like much, as the very first time I tried the game I attempted to be a hunter and got bored/annoyed pretty fast.

    I was able to almost break-even on my investment with my time as a miner, and should have $15 or so in PED along with $5 in equipment still on my character. Keep in mind I only played for 2 weeks to a month or so.

    I can't help but see this game and think about how much more successful the game would be if it was actually a good game.
    I can see why it can be addicting, but the same can be said about RuneScape... neither are really -good- games.

    I would love to see a modernized, true action based game like this.

    Well that is so open ended a question I can't really answer, all I know is that 50$ a month is more than you want to spend.
    What do you want to spend?
    What do you want to accomplish?
    Are you social or a loner?
    Are you good with math and mathematical theory, or are you hands on only?

    Answer those questions, and I can answer yours
