    Right now I'm not spending, I'm earning
    I decided to try to sell gold on pages like *nope* and it's going pretty good I guess

    Most I spent on GW2 was like $15? to unlock a living World season I missed.

    I wish I had my $15 back

    Maybe $10 every 2nd or 3rd month. I'm a very casual player in the midst of leveling some new characters so anything I do an RMT for is likely something that will last me for a while. Like extra bag slots or perhaps something akin to a crafting license that grants something to the account.

    I play very casually and probably have spent around $150 total on gems.

    Mostly quality of life/utility items (char slot, crafting slot, gathering tools, salvagers etc), I also bought a handful of black lion chest keys and living world stuff I missed. Pretty much only buy stuff when it’s discounted

    My understanding is people’s issue with the store is that pretty much any good looking skin must be acquired through the store. I think the counter argument is that you can grind gold to get the gems, not the funnest of mechanics though.

    I wish GW2 had the player base to support a better business model, but here we are.

    Yep.

    It's the fact that there's almost no, "Go complete this content, get this reward" in the game. With the exception of incredibly grindy or costly meta-achievements which usually are just time gates and nothing more.

    Teapot said it best when a viewer pointed out that WoW and GW2 both have store bought mount skins - and he replied that WoW also has like 400 that you can just go play the game to get, and GW2 has...one?

    I'll spend 10-15USD every so often. The only "guaranteed" purchases I make are the supply drops (https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/8th...op_Requisition). They're heavily discounted on the first week of availability, and they tend to be worth it in terms of cosmetics.

    As for this "the good stuff is in the gemstore" thing: that's a solid 'matter of opinion' deal. I don't think I've felt a 'must buy' for a specific gemstore item since the Grand Lion griffon skin.

    I won't disagree on the issues with mount skins though. The fact there's literally one mount skin available via in-game methods (WvW reward track for the Warclaw) annoys me to no end.
