Its good imo, the game play is solid there is a decent player base, it has a good story line. but if you want to play completely f2p without giving them anything it requires a fair amount of grinding out things called deeds. these are like kill x amount of wolves or kill so many goblins or kill x amount of trolls ect. and they have two levels to every deed, you kill them 60 or so times first time around then 160 the second time and at the end of this you get 5 points for the first 60 and another 10 points for the second 160.
you go around the world doing this in the various regions to get enough points to buy your unlocks. in their store you buy stuff with points not money. you can however pay money to get more points.
key unlocks that i would spend the money ahead of time to you can unlock them are a mount, unlimited wallet size, use of auction house and maybe unlock the extra two bags, everything else should be unlockable with grinding. though there are some stat tree stuff that you may want to pay to unlock.
I'm not sure if it still works this way but before if you bought a months worth of vip (basically pay2play) you got all that stuff and more unlocked including all the regions in the basic game unlocked even after your vip ran out. i'm not sure about anything past the basic game as i played before they did the expansions and only got to level 33. you can deed in areas of the game you do not have unlocked as well as travel through them you just can't quest there. honestly the 1 month vip was worth it in hind sight to get the extra crap unlocked.
