    A ZOS Executive confirmed that they will be purchased via the Crown Store. Originally, the write up stated that they would be available for in-game gold as another option but that guarantee has been removed in the most recent change to the article.

    IF available, it WILL be a Crown Store item. People will buy those...

    If by "rare" you mean purchasable in the crown store... They've said that XP boosters would be available in the crown store, but I think we all assumed that they meant ones that gave a 10% boost.

    Did not see that in the OP's post about the crown store....

    So "Rare" doesn't play a part in this then.

    I guess the discussion would turn to whether or not they should be offered as a Crown Store exclusive? The conversation that stated guaranteed they would be available via in-game gold as well as Crowns has been altered and no longer provides such a guarantee.

    XP earns CP which ultimately grants significant power.

    If I ever have even the slightest feeling that ESO has become P2W I will Uninstall it from my system in a heart beat.

    If it's a Crown Store exclusive then I'd be disappointed that not even a week into B2P they already have plans to sell power under the mask of "Convenience". I'm interested on when they will be addressing this and giving more info regarding this item.

    Going pay to win is the only way for new players and casual players to keep up and remain competitive in the current system. If they are willing to pay or hardcore/vet players are willing to pay to maintain their advantage, then I say more power to them.

    That is a fallacy in and of itself.

    Sure, it might help new player A who plays 2 hour a day catch up player B, who plays 3 hours a day (but doesn't purchase boosters), but it sure won't help player A catch player C who plays 12 hours a day and purchases these potions.

    In fact, it makes the gap exponentially larger (and it keeps getting worse & worse).

    In regards to catching up and newer players I have a feeling a system will be implemented periodically that allows certain enlightenment for players under Champion Rank (X). That would make sense so the climb doesn't seem too steep for newer players.

    Cashing in on exclusive Crown Shop pots would not be the solution to that problem. Let's hope that ZOS can confirm that these "XP Boosters" are available via other means of purchase be it in-game gold etc or that they don't affect xp accrual past lv50. Boosters shouldn't determine the rate of end game progression. That's my opinion but I'm firm in that.

    If these get released, it will not only be the end of my time in this game, it will be the end of ESO.

    But the gap isn't exponentially larger as champion points don't exponentially increase in power. It is a system of diminishing returns.

    this is why i adopted a (at least one point any anything i might not want maxxed initally)

    that 1% bonus for just one point is really good get, then focus on one specifc bonus if you want...

    or if you have several specific bonuses that are in the same tree you want a passive bonus in, just spread evenly between them
    I play every class in every situation. I love them all.

    Easy solution is just make them invalid for champion ranks.

    LOL you think ZoS does not wan't money? The entire reason to sell XP pots will be to get money. If they don't work for champion ranks, they will cut their income by about 99.99999% from this particular item. Sorry to say this to you buddy but it won't happen. Just take it from me because I knew all along that xp pots were going to give ATLEAST 50%. 50% was the bare minimum.

    But buying a champion point is convenience for me but others see it as buy to win

    The DR is not steep enough for that to be a proper fallback.

    How about NOOO? Geez, this B2P is getting P2W more and more every day :/

    What's P2W? They already removed the Magicka, Health and Stamina potions from the Crown Store, because people were crying. Are you going to now try to convince others (and yourself for that matter) that repair kits and soul gems are Pay 2 Win items?

    While I agree 50% may be a bit much but if they stick to the original idea that it will be available for not only Crowns but ALSO IN GAME GOLD, then who does it hurt? The people who are broke in game? Their wealth is nobody's problem but their own.

    If items like this are actually put into the game, for me personally it makes it seem that there is no long term plan for this game by Zenimax.

    These items are meant to entice players to Buy things with real money that gets them to end game content faster. But when they get there, unless there is a heck of a lot more end game content....people will bail out from the game and go somewhere else.

    This to me, almost seems like a bad idea. Quick profit over sustained income......

    But, alas, this is a MMO and they do have their issues.

    I don't think that this is only a method to reach end game content faster but rather progress through the end game progression system faster which in my opinion shouldn't be bought.

    These "Boosters" would be really nice for leveling up to lv50 even as a paid item because that's really when the game starts. No one does competitive gameplay at lv10,20,30 or even 40.

    Might not be pay to win, but it's certainly nickel and diming players, very exploitative.

    Damn, 50%? Well, I did spend a lot of time on my first two v14s. I'd probably use it to get my other characters up to speed. Still though, it looks like P2W.
