I see quite often on these forums people stating that Turbine are ripping us off and I largely disagreed with those statements. Turbine are a for-profit company and it's their job to make money. However, there are ways and means of making money and the exclusion of +4 to +5 upgrade tomes means that, having already paid 4495 for a +4 supreme stat tome I am now being asked to pay a further 4795 TP (approximately £20 at discounted rates or £30 at non-discounted rates) to bring all of my stats to +5.
This is, of course, on the top of my VIP subscription.
I could quite easily at this point join the camp of people who believe Turbine are ripping us off. I think I need a cheaper hobby, like cocaine or something.
