I had that thought too Dread, all I can think is there will be a lot of low-level types that might buy ore etc. but they will also be poor and if smart they will be flooding the market with low level harvestables so the price will probably drop.

The old standby Silver is probably a good bet as there will soon be throngs swarming over all the good hunting spots so at least now it's easier to get.

Perhaps the gold limit will encourage some to buy materials as an investment to store value? Who knows?


Oh But my beta experiences, I still have my standard subscription so I only played a few hours of the beta to help out and look around. I think everything is going to be fine and if you really want to play the game more than a small amount you will end up paying some money. Which is good, paying for games = games being made = creative people who love games having jobs.

Also, the new level up animation is pretty sweet :)

horses before a decent faction price reduction is 500s well with in the 2g limit, however for a f2p to ride said bought horse you have to first purchase the riding skill from the store with points bought with real money. since the NDA has been lifted with the exception of copying anything from the actual beta forums and reposting it on another site. i can say i have been in the closed beta for awhile now, and as a returning player i found that in general most of the "game" is more accessible. i think the biggest thing about lotro f2p is you can go anywhere within the game as f2p, but you have to buy quest packs etc for these places. they arent overly in your face about becoming a vip or buying points, no window pop up every time you level telling you how your missing out etc. also a f2p with a 2g cap can even purchase a house albeit the smallest house, but still realty within the game.
