Another for instance are all those that buy new games at launch, and the expansions/DLC as soon as they are released. Although if they waited, they'd have been able to get some kind of GotY bundle with all of those things at a small fraction of the price, or get it from a bundle site for next to nothing, and have had a better idea if the game would even have been something they'd like than at launch.
Also I believe at least some of these changes (like the new path) were just things seen in other releases further ahead of us, and not some "we're listening" thing NCSoft West is doing for players. Blade and Soul Gold The new ways of getting moonstones could just be something like Hell Island, which won't directly help players unable to do SSP.
Change the cost of upgrade legendary weapons and maybe I will think of playing this game back, cause its all what I could upgrade since month. But there is nothing other to upgrade if you want to play only one character. Best news for me would be the moonstones. Add a upgrade mode for armor stats, without PDEF and MDEF you are a sitting duck in the game.
