Starting November 13, 2012 (expansion launch ETA), Free and Silver members will no longer have a coin limit on their accounts! The introduction of the Krono brought to light how difficult it was for F2P players to purchase or sell Krono from other players. SOE listened and responded quickly; this change has been on the beta server as of two days ago. The full announcement is available after the jump.
It's an exciting time in the world of Norrath! Beginning on November 13, 2012, there will no longer be coin restrictions for players with Free and Silver memberships!
"We're always looking at ways to make sure our Free and Silver members are getting a good value now that we're Free to Play. Lifting the coin limitations is one way we're doing that," says Producer Holly "Windstalker" Longdale. "The launch of Krono is a really exciting feature for us, and we want to make sure all of our players will be able to participate in the program (buying, selling, and trading Krono in-game). After hearing that same desire expressed from the players directly, we knew it was the right time to make this change and remove the coin restriction."
Free and Silver players had previously been limited to a certain amount of gold coin per character level. They will now be able to accumulate an unlimited amount of coin on each character.
