F2P and Recruit Gear.....

No, you get to complete the quest, but cannot choose the award, it's a systematic thing, F2Pers cannot choose boxes as quest awards (like from the lowbie daily).

On top of that, if you role play a neutral character, you will end up not being able to equip any relics since F2Pers can't use artifact gear.

You can still buy the blue stuff individually though.

Here's the only thing i can think of for an f2p

An f2p player at lvl 50 can spend a day or two farming belsavis dailies upon hitting 50 so he can get recruit gear.

1-2 more dailies for buying artifact gear unlock off the gtn

so about 2-4 days before he starts farming for WH

Still... I wish It was better for f2p people.

dropping 4.99 to switch to preferred is a must.

How long did you say you've been PvPing for? Cuz from what I hear it sounds like you've just started.

There are actually players that are F2P and make it to 50? You guys are truly hardcore because that is a terrible gaming experience...

Should give you free WH gear for making it to 50F2P!

This shows how much EAware really cares about PVP:

I was teamed in CW the other day with 3 F2Pers, all with zero expertise gear.
Anyone want to guess how that warzone turned out?

EAware, either don't allow F2Pers in 50 warzones at all or give them the recruit gear.
Don't ruin my (a subscriber!) warzones by being petty!

As pointed out above i'm sure, while they may not get a free set of recruit gear thrown at them. And it sucks to see a Sorcerer with 12.5k in a 50 warzone, there's nothing stopping them from going to Ilum or Belsalvis. The gear in terms of 50's dailys, is a couple of hours. Unless of course ftp can't do dailys either.

There are people at 50 who are not preferred? I though it was pretty much a no brainer to go preferred considering all the stuff you get.
No but seriously, give recruit gear to f2players. Oh and possibly increase the stats a bit. We want them to have a taste at wzs, not a taste at eating dirt.

What's the problem again? Couple of months back we all had to go through the process of buying recruit gear, how is it suddenly such a huge issue? Do F2P get reduced credits from quests? If they manage to get their asses to 50 with the stupid XP reduction, they should be able to get the recruit gear with no problems, no?

Not defending the horrible F2P model BW and EA devised, but this really isn't an issue of being F2P, just as it wasn't an issue when everybody had to buy the gear.
