In the off chance someone considering picking up the game is reading this, I'd like to offer my link to my Ascend-a-Friend code so I can get points toward the mount and other sub perks. For the moment, I play a Guardian primarily on Faeblight (PvE-RP) and I'm unsure if that's one of the shards a trial player can create on, but getting to 15 and subscribing would allow you to transfer over if it's of interest.
For reference, the standard digital edition of the game is $4.99 with subs starting at $15/month with cheaper options for bulk purchases. If you come to Faeblight, I wouldn't mind hooking you up with a mount if you need it as well as possibly crafting some equipment to help make the early levels a bit easier. Of course, if you'd rather play on a PvP server or something, that's fine.
