I consider playing this game, so I have a few questions:
1) There are 2 versions of this game. At first glance it would make sense to play the normal version, since it has significantly more content. However I also read that most players play on classic and that the development of the normal mode has been basically discontinued, so is there something better about the classic version?
2) Can I play the entire game free to play, do I have to pay monthly for siel aura or do I have to pay even more money to have an enjoyable experience?
3) Is there still an active player base?
4) There would also be the alternative to switch the publisher and play on NA servers. Does anyone know about differences between EU and NA version? E.g. I noticed that NA offers 2 hours of siel aura + higher xp + more loot for classic version - sounds like EU is significantly worse for Aion classic?
