  • You'll rake in millions overnight from every investment bank on the map
  • Access to all specialty trading, increasing revenue by a few million a week
  • Every costume for every situation, get a unique look by mix and matching for uber maid parties held at your house with 100 maids in it
  • Never throw anything away with so much storage between warehouses and fully upgraded alts
  • Take true advantage of your alts by giving each one a separate costume, giving them all different specialties. Leave your main at the grinding spot permanently.

  • Never snipe the marketplace again, offer hundreds of thousands of pearls for what you want, even a PEN ogre ring! (this has actually been done btw)

Everything fabby, except... you would still have no guarantee it would all translate to super-duper uber gear (full PEN for example). Or in any case, to be more realistic, would still take a lot of effort and time to acquire it, either self casino-enchanting or having someone else do it for you.

 Let's have some fun and assume you have unlimited time:

  • Maximum efficiency through endless grinding, which is the hands-down most rewarding activity in the entire game.
  • Safely grind at uncontested grind-spots during off-hours.
  • Unlimited funds due to the mentioned grinding.
  • Attending world bosses regardless of when they spawn.
  • Huge gear advantage as you'll get everything you need from grinding/bosses. Unlimited enchantment-materials too.
  • Huge level and skill-point advantage.
  • Snipe value packs off the marketplace at a ridiculous low silver price instead of actually having to pay money for them.
  • Oh boy, the extra silver from the value pack by selling all that loot you got from endless grinding.
  • Snipe costumes off the marketplace at a ridiculous low silver price instead of actually having to pay money for them.
  • Endless memory fragments from being able to do scroll groups all day.
  • Take true advantage of yours alts by maximizing their energy recovery.
  • Take true advantage of life-skills by actively being able to time them with imperial resets, etc.

That was fun.

Now, the difference between your pearl example and my time example is that the latter is far closer to reality. Nevertheless, p2w threads all over the place, unemployed2win however barely ever getting mentioned. Personal bias goes a long way.

Wait... so all I have to do to get a value pack from the marketplace is to play 24/7?

Pretty much. In the threads about value pack availability, you usually find plenty of posts/screenshots from players who managed to stock up on them through sniping the marketplace. Obviously, this isn't just about luck, it's about keep trying and making use of off-hours, which again brings us back to the matter of time-investment.

Furthermore, you don't win anything by throwing money alone at the game. Lists such as created in the OP are ridiculous because the "p2w" element is meaningless without a considerable time-investment along with it. Time-investment by itself however is far more rewarding on its own (see my list). What's the point of "infinite" artisans memories if you don't have memory fragments along with it. What's the point of the value pack tax reduction if you don't sell a large amount of items on the marketplace. What's the point of additional grinding benefits if you cannot "peacefully" grind for hours (no karma bombing, spot sharing, pking, etc.).

As a result, someone who spends an absurd amount of time on the game is still far better off that someone who spends an absurd amount of money on the game. You are not looking for "rich people", you are looking for "rich people who no-life the game" if you want to make a case about pearl advantages aka p2w. Curious to know how many of those you think there are compared to those who "only" no-life the game.

You'll never have to lose a crystal when changing gear

Free users can do this as well by using the crystal extraction tool. 

You'll rake in millions overnight from every investment bank on the map

No you won't as you can only have 5 residences.

  • Access to all specialty trading, increasing revenue by a few million a week

No you won't as you only have access to 5 residences.

  • Never throw anything away with so much storage between warehouses and fully upgraded alts

There's still finite storage, there is no unlimited storage. 

  • Never snipe the marketplace again, offer hundreds of thousands of pearls for what you want, even a PEN ogre ring! (this has actually been done btw)

You still have to higher pre-order than everyone else or you'll lose the item when someone else snipes it. 

  • Ride with style as every t8 horse you own has its own outfit 

Still have to get the T8 in the first place.

 

50 mil a day from selling on the market

Still have to have the items in the first place to benefit from the extra silver.

with 192 CP FREE ( he also forget that insane advantage ) storage slot for every single city, its certainly way more than enough to allow you to never ran out storage slot

He also forget the worker CP FREE slot & Horse stable CP FREE Slot.

 

With infinite skill reset + infinite breed reset / death count reset, I dont see where the  T8 getting would be an issue. It would at least be closer to what a "normal" game would provide ( without unnecessary time stretching because pointless RNG regarding gaming interest )

 

With unlimited pearl / CS item "in game", the game would way more look like a "normal" game without many unless annoyance.

I didn't see this mentioned, so unlimited pearls also means:

Free costumes for everyone (via gifting)

Free pets for everyone

.. and so on.

It would be as fun as playing Doom with god mode on, probably would stop playing with that amount of p2winning.

We only got one, you don't know if we will get another ever again, so...

OP didnt actually mention anything about p2w in his post so one could believe this thread was only made for fun as a "what if" moment. Concidering OPs post history I might be wrong ofc but without knowing for sure there is no reason to start up the p2w train just yet :)

 

@Alicia Dominica

Your assumption/list is actually even more fantasy than OP. While its not impossible to have enough money to buy any pearl item you ever want it is impossible to have more than 24h per day. Also you cant do scrolls, grind, attend bosses, camp the market and have your alts loged on in bed all at the same time.

Now I dont know if you where being 100% serious with your response but since you wrote:

Now, the difference between your pearl example and my time example is that the latter is far closer to reality.

I thought I could point out that it doesnt look like that when I compare them :)

 Let's have some fun and assume you have unlimited time:

  • Maximum efficiency through endless grinding, which is the hands-down most rewarding activity in the entire game. - Ok, let's pretend that you as a player with "unlimited time" not only plays 24 hours a day but also is capable of actively grinding 24 hours a day. Then maybe, but if you call it "close to reality" then I don't want to know what your reality looks like rofl.
  • Safely grind at uncontested grind-spots during off-hours. - Most popular grind spots are occupied pretty much around the clock, but ok.
  • Unlimited funds due to the mentioned grinding. - No, you are limited by how much you make per hour, so not unlimited.
  • Attending world bosses regardless of when they spawn. - Sure
  • Huge gear advantage as you'll get everything you need from grinding/bosses. Unlimited enchantment-materials too. - So you mean mobs drop hards and sharps nowadays? "Ok."
  • Huge level and skill-point advantage. - You no longer get important skills after level 62 on any class afaik and 61 on most (which you will reach quickly with 24/7 grind) so the advantage won't be huge and against other lv61 you won't have any.
  • Snipe value packs off the marketplace at a ridiculous low silver price instead of actually having to pay money for them. - Depends on your region I suppose, but sniping value packs on EU is pretty damn unlikely (like one a month if you have a go at most that are posted within a day) and without maids very time consuming, having to relog to an alt all the time. This also cuts into your grinding efficiency btw.
  • Oh boy, the extra silver from the value pack by selling all that loot you got from endless grinding. - No, because you don't have a value pack, see above.
  • Snipe costumes off the marketplace at a ridiculous low silver price instead of actually having to pay money for them. - No, see above. Also, the costumes that actually matter can't be listed on MP.
  • Endless memory fragments from being able to do scroll groups all day. - You are limited by how many pieces you can loot, so not endless.
  • Take true advantage of yours alts by maximizing their energy recovery. - There is no difference between just cycling alts for afk recovery unless you are actively doing energy recovery quests. But then you aren't grinding 24/7, right?
  • Take true advantage of life-skills by actively being able to time them with imperial resets, etc. - Everyone can do that, you know exactly when the resets happen, which is also pretty often, so adjust your playtime slightly and you are good.

That was fun.

Now, the difference between your pearl example and my time example is that the latter is far closer to reality. Nevertheless, p2w threads all over the place, unemployed2win however barely ever getting mentioned. Personal bias goes a long way.

TL;DR - mostly wrong, try harder next time.

If I had unlimited pearls, I'd buy Choppys. Just. Choppys. Hundreds. 

Also can we get crystal extraction tools in game?

I'd prefer unlimited Loyalty. 

I'd just buy thousands of boss scrolls.
