Hi, firstly english is not my native language, excuse my mistakes.
I met with Arpg genre with Path of Exile but years after i begin to differ where PoE going and im looking for new arpg. Last Epoch seems interesting but i have some question and i hope one can answer them.
I want to begin with monetary system ;
Aside from core game price will Last Epoch ask money from players for expansions every 3-4 months?
Will game have some gray area p2w mechanics? For example i read players can only list 5 items to bazaar, if i willing to pay real money can i increase the number lets say to 10?
Or some pets that picks up items for players or paid inventory space?
Secondly for in-game mechanics i read developers planing to have 3-4 months cycles like path of exile. Will these cycles contains A LOT of bugs like in Path of Exile challenge leagues or tested content for players to enjoy. I really fed up with challenge league bugfests.
And what are the thoughts of developers on 3rd party programs? In path of exile you need to have lots of macros or programs to stay competetive. For example Flask macros, Path of Building, Trade macros, etc.
Lastly, in cycles can we refrain from certain content because we dont have fun doing them. Or are we have to play/test new content in cycles. Im asking this because in Path of Exile player at some point in game cant refrain himself from overpowered content (Syndicate members) and dies in vain.
Thanks in advance and for understanding.
