We talk about money a lot here on Massively OP. Business models. Stupidly expensive things we’ve bought. Annoying cash shops. Even things we’d like to buy but no one will sell us – sup, Guild Wars 2, please sell me clothes I wanna wear!
One thing we haven’t done in long time is actually sort out which MMORPG is actually the most expensive. I don’t meant which one has the most expensive collector editions or sparkleponies; I mean… if you started fresh in a game, today, how much would it really cost you to get reasonably up to speed with the right expansion packs, DLC, or “necessary” cash shop addons like bag slots? Do sub games that charge for expansions too still ask for the most? Or are the “hidden” fees of cash-shop-driven play significantly more burdensome? Take all that into account for today’s Daily Grind as you consider: What’s the most expensive MMO to play at the end of 2017?
