Like the title says I need to know if any experienced Blade and Soul players can tell me if the price of Premium Membership is worth it . I mean from the little I managed to play of it I do like it. That combat system is just dope, especially the way combat is both ground and air based..

But it took me 45 damn minutes to get into my last session.. I mean damn even in the beta Archeage never had those kind of queue times . And I am not paying for Premium membership or new cosmetic stuff until I see how PVP and the harder dungeons are handled.

If you're just buying premium for the queue times then I wouldn't bother as the queue will likely die down a lot once the initial hype for the game has calmed down, as for if the premium bonuses are worth it you can find that out for yourself.

If you think that the things listed in the premium benefits table will help you a lot then sure it's worth it. Personally I'm not a premium member as I only play casually.

It took me 2 hours to get into one session. But the game is worth playing for free

Mmm ArcheAge did have those queue sessions.. but you have to remember most of us have been waiting YEARS for this game to be released and have played on different servers.

This isn't beta lol, so of course the queues are going to be very long, but they've reduced it and added more servers. ツ I'm sure the majority have already gotten bored within the first week, this upcoming week should be the last week with queues, if any.

But I think premium is definitely worth getting, at least for the first two weeks since the game first released in NA, so you don't have to wait as long; unless you are patient and kill time. :'D I've only had to go into queue twice, I'm in Soha server though, one of the not-so-populated ones, but it's still up there. Mushin is by far the most populated server. E̶v̶e̶r̶y̶o̶n̶e̶ ̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶i̶r̶ ̶m̶o̶m̶ ̶i̶s̶ ̶i̶n̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶r̶e̶.̶

The PvP arena is absolutely amazing! I'm totally addicted to it. <333 j A j
Even though I started off at a pretty low level when I tried to PvP //orz
It's unfair to get matched up against people already 45 when you're only level 23 They should fix the match-making system..

The open-world PvP is pretty interesting too with the clothing-PvP-function

But now I'm level 37, I think? Last I got on was a few days ago.
Been taking breaks from it so I don't burn myself out of it.
I'm so in love with the story line and recently began watching the anime
(How did I not know Blade & Soul had an anime AaAaaAaaaA)

And--then I realized this was posted 8 days ago, oh well

I hope you all enjoy your time on Blade & Soul~! (๑´▽`๑)*✲゚* ❤

Thus far I think it's worth it for your first month of play, especially this month. In the long term, it's hard to say right now.

Cant speak for PvP as I've yet to try it out, I bought premium for the first few weeks since launch so I can skip queues but I'm not sure if I'll keep it or not.
going to pinch Naively-me's thing as its clear and easy to read:

First week of release, wait time was ungodly for free members. So I bought a 7 Day Premium membership to help lessen the wait time to 30ish minutes.

As of this whole week, since my premium membership expired, I've been able to log on without any kind of wait time. But those were regular week nights... We'll see how things fair this weekend.

And I guess since all the other cool people are doing it..

I'd like to play as I bought a 7 day premium, and it did work on Thurs when I first installed the game after a bit of finagling. But I tried logging in yesterday and downloaded whatever update they had when I started it up. Now the game continuously crashes when starting up, preventing me from playing and making the 7 day premium pass I bought almost worthless as I only got to play for a few hours with it. Nice job NCSoft.

Edit: And of course I finally figured out the problem right after posting this. NCSoft decided to make things not work nicely with Razer Chroma software. You'd think they'd plan for it to work with a highly popular brand of gaming products, but I guess not.
