What's the angle to get you to spend money. Nothing is truly free. Are you nerfed compared to players that spend money? Is there a pay to win shop? Does spending money only get you convenience items. I want to know what their angle is before I download it.

Character slots and stash space. Both of which are cheap.

The general philosophy of the devs is to offer a good game that you want to throw money at, not one that you need to throw money at. The only thing that's remotely pay to win about the cash shop is extra character or stash space (mostly this imo), but you start with 24 character slots and accounts are free so free extra stash space is merely an inconvenience.

The only other things you can buy are cosmetic items, dance animations, and the ability to add your own items to the game (for $1000 and you still have to acquire the item yourself once it's in). And guild tabs/extra character slots, but that's not going to affect you much if you're just starting out and plan to join an existing guild.

As far as free to play goes, this game is just about the perfect example of cash shops done right. Feel free to check for yourself:
