Those of us who were on long hiatus from the game, and/or are new (as some of my guildmembers are) are basically left wondering about this: Should we basically er, bite the bullet, and buy soulstones? I'm not advocating item purchasing online, or soliciting a site, or anything like that. I'm just asking bluntly, it is VERY Plain that many, if not most players, plan their game around soulstone use. I mean I ask for advice about a build and people (just assuming it is a must-have and everyone has one) is like "oh well, no, don't set your x skill to go down, just stone it and transfer it if you decide to change and do y in the future." I mean, it seems I guess... like a lot of guides, guilds, experienced players, templates, and cominbations of character slot use (efficiently) basically assume you have one. Or several. Should new/returning players just bite the bullet and get one? Buying game gear online is distasteful to me but it seems like an item virtually too useful to have versatile templates in the game without.
