While tis true that the game rewards players with in-game money from player activity, I find it a bit dubious that players are required to **pay ** to use the WP to have to travel to the Eyes of the North in the latest story installment.
IMO, there should've been some other mechanism that players can travel to the Eyes of the North that's free of charge within the game.
As best as I can recall, I believe that this is the first time a story piece requires personal resources, in-game currency, to make story progression, which makes a player such as myself question the principal of story requirements: ... are players going to be required to shell out in-game currency for more story progression?
I want to emphasis that story progression is categorically different than other items in the game, such as mounts which needed copious amounts of gold... which is more understandable.... but for story progression? That's where I'm a little concerned.
.... though I have to admit, the one silver and odd amount of copper is a pittance, so it wasn't a large sum overall.
Furthermore, I've also noticed at least one similar posting asking how to travel to the Eyes of the North besides using the WP:
Thanks for reading my gripe!!
