Your alt characters don’t need to be played at all though and you get three free characters. If you don’t want to level the other characters you can just save your gathering turn ins in storage and log into the alts once a week to turn them in, you also get the weekly arks quest done because Yerkes counts for daily, so that ends up being 950k per character, even a character that is level 1.
Why are you quoting me when I understand it just fine? Letting players (and rmts) make a million characters to inflate the economy without doing much work is absolutely god awful game design no matter how you look at it. A thousand times so with the convoluted, arcane, cancerous affix system being what it is.
You're SUPPOSED to acquire things by farming and contributing to the economy just like in any other game. But pso2 goes out of the way to make sure there is no economy. You can't list many items, most items are non stackable, and you can't list under 1k. And needing to pay or spend an hour+ blowing excubes on tickets for a pitiful 3 days shop is absurd. All games that use the pay-to-sell scheme are miserable, it's a proven bad formula that impacts real players negatively more than RMTs and bots, so why do asian game companies keep doing it?
Your original post didn’t make it seem like you understood it “just fine”, more like you were complaining and I offered you a solution. My mistake. The vast majority of my meseta comes from selling to NPCs from things I grinded for, the other from my weeklies. We get free storage from SG we can earn in game, why does everything need to stack? If you want to do away with Premium then write in the Suggestions, right now Premium has so little perks that personal shops is really one if its only selling points, it would have to be replaced with something else equally valuable to customers or not exist anymore.
