Just downloaded the game yesterday (06/07/2019) and played a few hours and need some clarification about some things: > When I looked for information about getting a house I have seen the words 'rent' and 'buy' used in various sources...when I pay for the house in a city is it a one-time payment, or do I have to pay again later to keep the house? > Same question regarding 'nodes'...I need to spend 'contribution points' to use a node -- do I have to pay that repeatedly or just one-time? > If my inventory in my backpack is enlarged via something that has a limited timer on it, and I have something in one of those slots when the timer runs out, what happens to the item(s) in that slot? > Regarding 'wars' over nodes and areas, etc. -- if I am not in a Guild, and an area/node/farm, etc. shows as being owned/controlled by a Guild when I look at the information for it, how does that affect my ability to use the node or farm? Do I have to be a member of that Guild to use the node/farm, etc.? > I understand that my character's 'energy' replenishes over time...but what about 'contribution points'...do they replenish over time, or do I have to earn more? > I am on one of the servers for 'rookies', where I get increased experience, etc. -- it indicates I will only be able to use that server for a limited time...at the end of that time will the character automatically transfer to another 'non-rookie' server, or will I have to buy some sort of transfer token? > Being that I am brand-new, and this is my first character, I figure I'll most likely make mistakes in spending points on skills and that sort of thing -- if I delete a character will I be able to re-use my character's name right away? Thank you for your time and assistance.
