I voted no, they should save up to buy it themselves. It's one of those things that you look forward to being able to earn. There needs to be goals and incentives, not handouts. It's one of those items that can't possibly be appreciated appropriately until you've harvested the newb way a bit.
I respect the point of you talking about incentives and handouts.
Because i've played EL, I know the process of starting fresh etc, harvesting lilacs, FEs all that shabam. In terms of this poll, and the point I would like to bring into it, is how long it takes to get where you want. Not everyone ofcourse can play 12 hours a day, and ofcourse not everyone wants to. I've played probably solidly on OL for 4 days now. It took me a whole day to get an excavator cape, with some help - and then from there tideous harvesting for the books I want.
If it comes to making victor BUY the capes from you (Starcys point of them leaving the game) for a couple hundred gc, and lowering the price of them from 2,9k to 1,5k or so seems acceptable.
I dont know how many people want to spend a day to get a measly cape to help harvesting because you need to make gc to progress for which Currently
we fighters cannot.
In terms of goals, like I said I respect that opinion but in my eyes my first thing I want to be able to earn is a new piece of chain armor, not a cape.
