Yeah the rate is very bad if it really is as low as that. Maybe it will get improved over time or with special banners.The 5 star character rates are 0.06 or something. Which are horrible even for a gacha. I'm a F2P gamer when it comes to gachas so as a non whale getting a full tree of 5 star characters is but a pipe dream. The difference here is that this is a game you can control and beat based on skill so it gets a semi-pass. You CAN play this game for free you'll just have to do things at a slower pace. Also I do not know why the starting town/country is the most boring one in the entire game compared to not-China and not-Japan. I can see why people that don't play these types of games easily dismissed this just as a "zelda" clone before they got the good looking scenery and better character moment. They missed a game that has actual books to read, unique npc dialogue and actual puzzles. But that's also because people see this single player game as a MMO so eh.
How can you possibly love this game and not botw?? It's the lack of anime stuff or good combat??
Zelda games just never appealed to me, there is something off about them that makes me uncomfortable.
Not really an excuse to rely so much on gacha systems imo
you can be a f2p with less horrible systems everywhere handling your progression (poe, warframe)
I don't mind gashapons though, but Warframe is fucking terrible, the only saving grace of Warframe is that you can get the premium currency dirt cheap if you know how ad buy whatever you want. I once tried to get something without platinum and it was the saddest, most pathetic and annoying grind I have ever done in my life.
