Is the idea of making a choice based on principle that much to ask one to understand? I'll take your absence of a counter-point to my Chronomancer example as a point that you know can not be debunked because it holds some form of truth based on the simply dignity of principle that even you couldn't deny, that you do have some semblance of an idea of where I'm coming from.
There is not a problem in the perspective of getting what was advertised, what are you talking about? Is this your attempt to trying to "debunk" my Chronomancer example, by skipping over it altogether and going for the, "Yeah well, you paid for this and got this. So there, yeah" approach? That's just weak and very telling, displaying that you're not even bothering to try and empathize or understand to see where my point of view is coming from.
It honestly does surprise me that this issue was not raised earlier when the Class was released in general (or if it was, I was not around for it). Understand that I am not alone in having this particular opinion regarding LightCaster Class and it's relation to the LightCaster set from the 2013 Upgrade Package.
The farm for the items, Burning Blade of Abezeth aside (seriously. that map should permit for a party of at least 3 after The Final Battle quest is completed to tone down the monotony of the grind, popular opinion discussed in the Discord server, but I digress) the grind to reach level 80 all too often feels like cruel and unusual punishment that even AQW Staff has some idea of knowing with their baby step approach into the idea of Auto Modes.
You may see it as "just complaining for things to be easier", and if that's the perspective I give off, that's perfectly fine, everyone has their opinion. But I'd also like you to keep in mind that I am only one voice of many that in general shares the opinion of how out of hand AQW gets with the grinds for "challenge" that it's no wonder it pushes people to Bots. Some grinding is fine to earn something, but a line is never, if at all rarely, of reason is ever drawn (Level 80/85 is not even the worst offender in this regard, but I digress). But, back to the point at hand;
What you neglected to mention is the inclusion of the requirement that purchasing an Armor for 1k ACs is part of the mix (which for many, is not a small thing to ask for). So consider, once more as per my example (though it's redundant that I even need to make this example considering it's a copy/paste of the current situation) - User(s) buy Chronomancer Calendar. Calendar Shop has Helm/Armor/Weapon/Cape/etc. Years later Chronomancer Class is released. Locked behind a series of restrictions. Requires that you buy ACs in order to first get Baby Steps Chronomancer (Light Mage/Blood Sorceress treatment), in order to get the Chronomancer Class that SHOULD have been a given in the shop when it was first released.
Seriously. How is it hard to understand where I (one among many) am coming from with the morality of principle?
