I don't have much room to speak, since I've been on a huge Dofus break for quite awhile now,
To the people here on imps, on the Facebook post, and to the Official forums, can we please drop the "LUL THEY'LL PUT GEAR/DOFUS ON THE E SHOP SOON!!!!!' it's seriously getting old. All you are doing is acting like a spoiled child old "BACK IN MY DAY!!!" fuddyduddy and possibly causing misinformation among the community by venting your anger in a petty way.
Games are changing. MMOs as a whole are changing. Yes, it's lame that nowadays players are able to obtain something that you and I had to work pretty hard for back in the good days, but lets be a bit real, most MMOs are having to do something similar. Traditional subscription based games are slowly making their way out the door for games that make huge profits via Micro Transactions. As silly as it sounds, at least Ankama hasn't turned Dofus into something along the lines of what Bioware did for SWTOR, that entire game is a glorified advertisement to sink more money into gaining bonus experience for quests and monsters. Hell, look at the great World of Warcraft, even they're offering players a boost to the game's level cap VIA their shop for 60USD, or free when they pre order the new expansion (Which is 49.99USD)
It's what's already been stated on here. Nobody has gone "Wow, that guy is sooo op because he changed his build". This is not a P2W move, this is just Ankama keeping up with the times, doing something that has been requested for years, and this certainly isn't the first step to "LOOK VULBIS IN THE ESHOPLULULU"
The in-game economy isn't going to change one bit from this. If anything, it may keep some of the lower level players who would normally end up quitting because they messed up on their stat points.
I'm personally never going to purchase The Magical Orb (especially when it's 6000 orgrines...) but I'm not going to sit here and stomp my feet because Ankama is doing something that I don't like.
