What did I spend my money for???

6 posts in this topic

So, I played the free trial on this game, loved it. I thought it was pretty good minutes a few hiccups which were mostly just learning curves. However, when i went to buy the game, I thought I should help myself out a bit and get the Explorer's Package. I mostly wanted the horse flute/horse and pet since I am not super worried about character details until I cap, but of course the dyes were a plus. 

That seems fine yes? Except I am playing with a friend, and that friend has gotten more stuff than me. They have the tier 3 horse and an outfit among other items I do not have that did not come from drops. So, my question is, why the **** did I spend my money when apparently the game is just going to give us all this stuff anyways? It isn't giving me a leg up or helping me at all if everyone else has it. Also, i know my friend did not buy the pack, they got the regular version with no extras, so that is not the issue.

I get this seems like a shallow concern since its sorta just whining about the fact someone has the same items as me. But truly, I don't understand why they would make the Explorer's Package seem so great when I'm actually behind with it than my friend without it (who btw has had the game for actually less time than me).

Can anyone maybe clarify why this is, or perhaps reassure me that I didn't just waste all my money? Thanks.

are you perhaps talking about the rookie rewards? They are temporary outfits (7 day) and a T3 horse is worth like 100k.

the horse flute itself is worth alot adding to that the pet makes it pretty profitable.

I am not looking to sell these items. So I don't care if they are worth a lot. I am asking why I bought the Exploer's package to get them, yet they were given to my friend (and myself, I have two horses now). I guess my question is why would they advertise the explorer's package as being better than the basic version but give some of the same items to just everyone in game, like the T3 horse. I thought you were supposed to start with a donkey?? Not a T3 horse unless you paid for the package (or went through in game and bought one).

Because they are from free events. Again let me repeat a T3 is worth nothing. The flute is 7 days. The permanent one you get from the explorers package is 15$ and 10$ for a pet. That alone is 25$.
