They are now completely locking the shop until players have completed the story quest Aina’s Resolve, to help prevent fraud. Which is the quest you get after completing the Mt Magnus story mission.
This should hopefully help reduce the bot problem, has they will actually need to play the game to beat Nogaleth? it will also make red box farming less efficient, possible to the point where it’s no longer worth doing? At the moment you can run around the map has soon has you complete the Aelio town tutorial, and could farm the boxes in about 30-40 mins. With this change you would now need to go the central city, go to 2 rykrus devices, complete 2 cocoons, raise your BP to 830, and complete Mt Magnus story section.
