    This game is not pay to win. Everything in the cash shop is tradeable, and you can buy the items with ingame gold and players can sell it. Every single game has a cash shop. It's not hard to make money also. Get a shadow wizard party together and spam. Run MA, run dungeons, sell holy water and gems. This game would only be pay to win if, the only way to obtain cash items was to buy them from the cash shop and not with gold.

    well everything except for pets but even those can be sold for gold in game when they release the pet medal item once or twice a year. plus they often give out pets free pets for some events and a free nimbus pet is usually obtainable from a event at least once a year so not all of them are just for extra inventory. compared to a lot of other mmos mabi has one of the best and most fair cash shops. just about everything can be sold for gold, even new rare outfits. as for making gold in game there are lots of ways to earn gold fast if you explore and find good places to farm.

    To me, NX in this game is a way to get new items and content first than everyone or with ease. Eventually the gacha items and clothings overload the market and it'll lose value, and then that's your opportunity to buy gach stuff from other players with your gold. The only things I've bought with nx has been pets and character cards.

    Just run lord missions with potent crystals, shadow missions, spam sidhes dungeon (fairly short and gives very good exp), else run commerce and sell those 5m ducat stuff, etc.

    Also, if you're lower-leveled, you can spam Albey Red Gem Dungeon in Tir Na Nog and hunt Skeleton (Normal, Red, Metal) and Mimic Scrolls to help you earn some gold.

    Mabi isn't p2w however the option to do so is clearly available. Anyone can p2w in mabi if they wanted to (stares at the most recent cash shop bundle). The people that do go for this route naturally have the advantage compared to those who don't.
    But hey its like this for most mmos :> what can you do

    considering that OP is 5K ttl, you should be able "spam" HM dungeons with guildies and friends for the better mats & enchants to sell.
    I heard squires is good money also? (im too lazy to check on them so I wouldn't know)

    also do take advantage of events, they're good money depending on the event

    I wonder how much of the population has bought a pet or gacha. I'd love to see the analytics during new/cycled item times.

    I agree with OP in the sense that some of the cash shop stuff is so over priced it's absurd. 7$ for enchant protection potions when enchant has an abysmal success rate? Trade unlock potions for 4$? Also gear packages like the new one that cost almost 80$? Do you know how many games you can buy for 80$? Hell you can buy groceries for a week with 80$. It just seems like nexon treats NA players like cash cows and tries to milk us for everything we are worth. Meanwhile we get watered down content compared to what KR gets.

    It's not designed to be a p2w because there is nothing to win at.
    The sense of winning is just a personal psychological thinking that there is something to win.
    But in order to make money, they have to put in items that supposedly makes it easier to play or rewarding in some other way.
    No one has to buy anything to play efficiently, but with the bandwagon effect; it's easy to be lured into spending on the game.

    since your 5k and maybe can do shadow mission Hardmode of the Shadow wizard with a party who can hold there own spreading out on the map clearing each checkpoint could rack you 1.5 million gold per week o 3o

    takes a long time but there is that option to make if you want to buy rebirth potions.

    Ive heard players making insane gold from it with there advanced tactic brief for each run as a group making about 15~20 million gold per week or even more....
