I think I got to be a beta tester since I fit an otherwise neglected platfrom or operating system. Either that or I'm the token old player demographic that Jeff needs because the kids don't have any money.

DV mentioned running 5 different creations at once.

Ok, and what about the item limit?

I never got that much in one spot to see the item limit. You will find that money disappears quite quickly in Chapter 3 when you get access to better spells, shaping creations, and training.

Yeah, this bring me another question. Are the prices lowered a bit? In GF2, I was very strict at money.

Well, GF3 was a bit better, but when I started to meet guys and Drakons who asks for 5000... Brr.

I'm not sure if item costs changed, although I think Jeff said somewhere that he reduced them slightly. There are plenty of expensive non-item things to buy, though. Buying spells and shaping is expensive, and buying other nice additions is even more so. Money is never in short supply, but the turnover is very quick.

—Alorael, who thinks cash flow may also be strongly influenced by the faction you join. It makes sense, actually, but he can't (yet) comment further on it.

Type of shaper you decide to go with will greatly affect how well you afford things and i believe faction choice makes some difference too. Magic is overall the most expensive craft to keep up with considering there are four categories of spells including Healing. With shaping, you tend to focus on one or two of three possible sequnces of five creation choices. You don't have to buy much in the way of skills for primarily bludgeoning blokes like Serviles.

As a shock trooper who was good at melee and some shaping, I wound up with more than $18K coins at the end of my last run through. Other games I wasn't quite able to afford every spell available at the end, though through very thorough exploitation of all resources and bonus areas, I nearly pulled it off. I was so insanely powerful anyway, it wasn't like I really was missing anything.

Jeff did lower some costs and added more money to be gained about halfway through the beta versions. The game feels pretty generous to me at this point...IF you undertake all available tasks and aren't afraid to sell off unessentials.

The costs vary a lot as you do quests for spell sellers and depending upon your current reputation with each faction, Shapers charge more if you are heavily biased towards the rebel cause when you want to buy something. I've seen prices drop from exorbitant to pretty average and back up as I did quests for each side. Also some people won't sell to you at any price until you do enough for their side.

One question: please tell me that selling prices aren't affected by reputation with a sect...

Three questions for me:

- About the loot, will be like in GF3 visibile the items value? When playing GF2 it was terrible don't know what to loot and what to don't.

- We will can be still able to steal items like in GF3?

- Will creations have an inventory?

Selling prices weren't affected by faction, but actually being able to sell can be.

Yes, prices are visible.

I'm not sure how you stole items in GF3, but you probably still can.

No, creations don't have inventories. Where are they going to hold stuff anyway?

—Alorael, who doesn't think he is really disclosing much here. If he never posts again, you know why. Mourn him, please.

Isn't it terrible how time just seems to go by so slowly when you really want something? =(

EDIT: Oh. It's no the 20th yet here.

EDIT2: Did i overdo that a bit? ;)

Technically, the man said "close to" the 20th, which could be close on the far side of the date...

:P

Besides, I'm sure that he has slightly better things to do than wait up until midnight just to launch a new game, like.. um.. sleep. Although, in this crowd, that might be declared an overrated commodity. :D

It's well into the 20th on the East Coast, too. I guess Jeff needed the sleep!

Tick, tick, tick - Jeff is probably sleeping and unlike the larger companies means some time later today and not starting at midnight.

This just in- GF4 is postponed to an unspecified date. Asked for details over the phone, Jeff hastily told the press: "No time to speak. Must hurry. The twilight realm is covering Hyrule!".
