While that may be true in some cases, I personally don't farm much but have quite the collection of godly gear for almost every class up to level 115. I enjoy farming when I have the time though. I think spending time or money both benefit the game
Time spent of people should be the only thing that can benefit the game. I personally don't care about how Gamigo could earn money or so, this is not my job to work on. Also, i rarely see ads about fiesta on facebook, on instagram, on youtube. Noone can always be on charge to farm all the things around, and that's why differences exists. Just don't rely on paying real money for your power.
It's not really about farming..
Reason why people farmed a lot is because the side content is useless if not non-existence entirely.
I capped all classes except crusader, I got so many perms for everything with different classes at each lv. I have farmed so much and kept so much including the "trash" drops to the point that I have over 15 different accounts that are used purely as storage.
Reason for that? No side content..
Crafting system? Not a thing in this game. Trying to craft pots, scrolls or whatever is just a waste of time since you can get them through other methods like KQs, lucky house and attendance.
What can you do that doesn't involve leveling up or doing dungeons...?
Vending? Dancing in towns? That's just being afk.
KQs, dungeons, and raids aren't side content.. That's the core of any MMO
You gear up to do raid, you do kq for exp/reward to lvl up so you can do the next dungeon. You spam dungeons to get gear so you can do raid. Circle of activities
There is nothing in fiesta that breaks that. You can't for example do fishing, gathering, exploring or whatever
If gears weren't easily dropped, you wouldn't have like 15 accs for storages. Also you can throw some away. My point of view to this "trash" gears could be , for example, another system were you could recycle things, or turn them into crystals or something else that might be really good for crafting. Also, in my opinion, the best gears should come from craft, with a % of failure while crafting. Weaponsmithing, armorsmithing, handicrafting etc etc etc... The KQ's system is something that i found only in Fiesta, and not in other mmorpgs, and can't say that is good or not. Also it's really bad that you can make scrolls/pots/stones from lucky house,attendance and KQ...cuz that makes the game REALLY easy, and really downgrades the effort put of all these crafters (including myself too). Vending is good, because you just trade things, which exists in every mmorpg and it's fine, and you can do it when you're not active.
