@acidicpure: You have to spend lots of time to reach level 60. And ofcourse you need some gold during lvl 1-60. You cannot wait until you reach lvl 60?
That would make the game booooring.
@orangezesty: You may have right.. lower level pepz don't actually need many stuff like the higher levels. But, to make the game even more enjoyfull, you can forexample buy a costume, awesome swords, axes etc, special-handed stuff and so on.. (to buy all of these stuff you will need GOLD)
