To be fair, this is one of the LEAST p2w mmos I've ever played.
It's indirectly p2w I guess. You don't have to spend any real money to play, but you're sure going to have a much harder time getting strong or looking how you want compared to someone who drops 300 dollars on the game a week to buy reforges or other cash shop items to sell to other players.
I disagree, you can more or less do all of the content in the game (except for the exceptionally endgame stuff) with like 2-5 months of investment, as my friend who I brought in the game can attest. That's hardly p2w. I'd argue the game is p2e (pay to endgame xD) since the difference between endgame and a character that can do all gens is insane.
I can run my grind mission in about 4 minutes 30 seconds each.
So if I schedule an hour in advance, I can get away with using two rebirth potions without it being a waste.
If you can't shoot for 200 without spending money on boosts, and you've no friends to partner with on harder grind missions: just shoot for 60 ;]
Surely a working-person could structure their schedule for a simple game, no?

Now if this was about those expiring Full-Heal potions, yeah. Those really DO suck. An expiring potion, really? .. . . reeeeaaalllyyyy????
At least nao soul stones have an OP reason for it, but just regular potions? Naaaaaah
But the problem is, you also have to be in the mood for it. If you're not in the mood for it, it suddenly switches from fun to chore...
Seriously! It's the most annoying thing to have like 3 rebirth potions that expire in 6 days , how do you expect us to use all of them? More so, how do you expect anybody that's not a nolifer to make use of all the timed things you throw at us through events?
So one answer might be that "they want to try to push people to use them, and not just hoard them".
But that basically boils down to this: The hoarders will still try to hoard them, or keep them to use them until the very end, after which they expire, and they lose. The non hoarders will use them just as they would if they wouldn't be permanent, except that even the non hoarders don't need to use EVERYTHING AT ONCE, and even they will have to throw some stuff down because it expired...
None of that gritty, nasty, gray/brown wannabe realistic crap.
The sad part is that a lot of "medieval" themed fantasy games have that, while in the actual medieval times, people were wearing really colorful stuff, not the brown poopstained stuff that's depicted in movies and games xD
