Guys, I've played a fair few online games and I know how hard it is to really, really want to be part of the fun, but not have the funds. However, begging other players for a gift of crowns is not the answer.
I recently had to take one young fellow off my friends list for that very reason.
I will gladly help out on quests or with bosses. I'm happy to tell you where to find obscure things. I will do my best to be a good teammate in all things... but I won't give you money.
