Sorry, I don't see it; I think the application falls through after you log out.

So ive been messing around on this while taking a reprieve from the evercrack and have a 56 muscian thing, its wierd playing on a real world map and the progression from the newbie areas in the East and moving west seems an odd concept.
The game seems to be a very strange mix between FF style combat (im up to 10) and the ongoing struggle with inventory management.
Honestly the # of quickslots and then inventory slots is a horrid burden, particularly if you arent loaded with enough cash to finish off enchants (either buying that last + x item to combine with the + x item in your inventory so it gets to be + y which matches the + y item you are using so you can further enchant it up to z, the inability of stacking equipment makes crafting a set of equipment (15) take up 1.5 full npc slots worth of inventory space.
Every time I start to enjoy a progressive quest (such as brans castle with dimitri anasstasia and heinrich) I have to stop because ive been loaded up with enough junk that i have to offload it.
I understand this is one of the ways they make money off their micro transactions but it is very tiresome to deal with

It doesn't help that they're so numerous earlier on, but once you get to shogun's boxes or so, you will squeal with glee when you find even a single box.
Worthwhile options are De Mere in the athens bazaar or just selling the boxes outright. When you're get so many that you can't feasibly open them all it's time wasted when you could be making money through more efficient methods than endlessly right-clicking

I was trying to learn every crafting skill available so that when I hammered anything I didn't want, I would get craft exp as well as the sellable stuff that comes from hammering things.

Like, Scheherazade used to just be standing out in the desert by a tree, but now she's smack in the middle of some roads and buildings that continue out to a bridge. But maybe all of that stuff was there before and I just missed it because I was on low settings...

I started playing again yesterday, and the new stuff is pretty interesting. There's quite a bit, too. It's actually kind of neat how it's like the civilizations are actually expanding. Like, Scheherazade used to just be standing out in the desert by a tree, but now she's smack in the middle of some roads and buildings that continue out to a bridge. But maybe all of that stuff was there before and I just missed it because I was on low settings... Really, if they got some interesting quests and decent dialogue writers, they would have an extremely nifty setting going.
And if they'd just make a few small changes (a few interface things, tiny/moderate cuts in exp and quest requirements, making higher tiered mercenaries more accessible) it would be absolutely amazing. Crafting still seems pretty wonky, too. But I can still see myself at least getting the thirty or so levels to reach 100. And the fact that they update pretty consistently gives me some hope, or at least passing interest, for anything beyond that.
It seems like Princess is still terrible though : (

A lot of you guys still playing? I have played off and on and seen that they did a content update and such, thinking about giving this a serious try again, kinda sick of playing the same MMO that every company seems to think are very different.
Also kinda missing some turn based action, haven't really played much since FFX accept when trying this game out when it was new. I'm going to look this game over, I'm having trouble finding a free MMO that I can get into that doesn't have the flaws that most seem to.
Here is a list of things that seem to be haunting free or even some paid mmo's that I find annoying
Bad in game and forum support
Little to no info on content patches or bug fixes
Little to no added content
Having to buy content to either hit max level or to compete in the end game.
A strange vibe around the community and rumors and signs of the game "Dying"
Maybe I'm asking for the world, but seems like you cant even find games without these flaws when you pay to play, if it isn't WoW (eww) but I have always heard positive things about AO. So seeing pretty extensive content coming to the game is a good sign for me, not sure how frequently that happens but I also remember when they added guitars for weapons the last time I played and I thought that was pretty metal!

So does the cash shop make it possible to enjoy the game more, progress faster and reduce the chances of item crafting failing on you?
Because back when I played I really liked what I was seeing and was thinking about giving them some money, but there were no items I could spend the money on. I never got higher than lv50-or-so, though.
