I am one who hates microtransactions, but I feel this is in no way as bad as most others. You can actually earn the points in-game to buy expansions, perks, etc. If you have multiple characters, you can farm deeds. My wife and I played the other night and ended up farming a total of 1000 points each, enough to buy a quest zone and a few other things. While there is much to spend on, it is no way required to advance until you get higher, at which point you can buy the fleshed-out expansions. We buy each other a turbine card (now on rollback at Walmart, by the way) as part of our anniversary gift, and other than a couple of those each, we've never spent a dime and both have multiple level 85 characters.

This is unfortunate because something that a lot of people forget is that not everyone is able to be connected to the internet. Believe it or not, high-speed internet isn't available for everyone. I know of several areas in rural WV, a hundred miles or so from here, that are still operating with dial-up. My consoles are always connected, but I do not play online games. I do like to be able to update my system and software, but have no desire to play the multiplayer component of my games. Being forced to always have my system connected, with my shotty internet, makes the system not worth my money.
