I'm no lover of a cash-shop in any (subscription based) MMORPG. I'm against the ones in Lord of the Rings online and EverQuest II as well for the same dislike of it, and normally I just leave them as they are (stocking up TP in Lord of the Rings online BIG-TIME), unless there's something I really need (like storage expansions in Lord of the Rings online).
One thing I certainly won't buy are the so-called fluff items from the cash-shop. You know, items like costumes (both clothes and customized weapons), mounts and other non-game breaking items. Reason is that these items are not really necessary to buy, and that (as subscribing player) I should be able to get these items while playing the game anyway...
But today I made an exception to that non-buying policy I use for cash-shop items...
Yes, indeed! In EverQuest II you can use an other mount's appearance as 'skin' for the actual one you're riding. In my case, I'm riding the Winter Wolf (bonus from an earlier expansion) where I have all it's statistics and bonuses, while you see that cute squirrel.
And the future... Anything more I might get from the cash-shop? Most likely yes. I have to admit that in EverQuest II, the cash shop has some real nice stuff for fluff-items available. And with me subscribing again and receiving 500SC a month, chances are I'll fall for something nice again later on
