Wow, thanks for all of the great news, so far i am thinking i may start off playing on ponchee, does the channel matter as well or are all of your toons on one server regardless of channel your playing on?
Also is AP required to play, because that was my main issue with shaiya after a while it became almost necessary to buy it to exist ?
Welcome to Grand Fantasia
All of your toons will be on one server regardless of channel
AP is not required at first, at higher levels, some stuff from the IM will make other players have an advantage in PvP, but also you can buy the stuff in the Auction House so you have a chance too, if you are good at saving money. Personally, I have only used AP to get costumes (I just like costumes)
If you need any help and I happen to be online, I can help on my character, CrystalHope, as long as it is not requiring a lvl 52 and above (As I am lvl 51 right at the moment)
