So I'm reading there are micro-transactions in this game?
If I am paying $60 + season pass will I still need to spend more money to get all the things?
I'll need to look for it, but my understanding is such:
-Steel is the funbux of the game.
-Everything I've seen so far has been able to be purchased with Steel. Be it characters, emotes, executions, loot boxes, etc.
-You can still play every character. You level them up. You get to choose feats for dominion and elimination when you get the appropriate level.
What you cannot do is change their armor, weapons, emotes, executions or play pretty pretty princess until you purchase them with Steel.
. You cannot access the customize screen without purchasing them.
-You can use Steel to buy XP boosters for set amounts of time
How do I get steel?
-Complete daily orders and contracts in the Faction War. usually between 500 and 100 steel rewards.
-Play through entire matches. you'll get about 25-60 steel based on performance.
-XP boosters add a little bit more steel on top of this.
What about the Gold Pass?
-The gold pass gives you 30 days of XP boosters
-Every Hero, plus 6 more to be released will be yours to play pretty pretty princess.
-You get access to those new heroes 1 week before everyone else.
What about Loot Boxes?
DO NOT BUY THEM YET.
For FUCKING REALSIES. THREAD OWNER PUT THIS PART IN THE OP.
-Loot boxes let you spend a set amount of Steel for random loot for a particular character.
-THE QUALITY OF LOOT IS BASED ON YOUR CHARACTER LEVEL.
-If you buy loot at level 1, it will be level 1 shit grey gear. (My guess, prevents twinking at early levels)
-Gear can only be upgraded so much. so spend all your hard earned Steel on a grey level 1 upgraged to level 5? Or actually get some use and upgrade that base Epic level 20?
-Upgrading gear pushes the bonus -AND- the negative stats of gear. The bonus is a net gain, but you will still suffer your other stat some.
-Upgrades require Steel and Scrap
-Scrap is made by scrapping gear you don't want. low quality stuff usually 5 to 10 scrap, better stuff yields more.
I haven't looked for it yet, but I'm sure there is something in a Ubisoft page in the menu to let you spend real world $$$ on Steel.
