I am starting on reboot with the new class this month. I don't think this is unreasonable, but if they are going to ask people to pay real money to bypass this then I think they should release vac pets in reboot.
I thought I was the only one. I'm missing out on the event because of this. It is so unfair. They do weird things like thing and then wonder why this game is dying... This is another turn off for me. I cannot even control what my ign is anymore.
