I'm looking for a MMORPG with the following requirements, in order of importance:
>Popular/populated (so no obscure chinese mmo)
>People do need gold/items to raid/do important shit and don't just farm it by killing stuff
>RP server present (duh)
EXTRA REQUIREMENT, HEAVILY ATTRACTED TO IT IF THE FOLLOWING IS POSSIBLE:
>A new character is still able to get every single item/achievement/title/whatever ever released. Beta exclusive items i can ignore.
Really? Even the extra one?
I've heard Teso is kinda obscure population and popularity wise though, how is it compared to big shots like WoW and FF14?
Or, for a better comparison, to others like Wildstar?

having your chat blown up as soon as you sign in because people wanted to buy your stuff was amazing, starting auctions after arkfalls with like 20 people fighting over my sweet drop would never get old. Too bad they added that horrid scaling system and butchered the combat by doing so
the only things you wont be able to get anymore are certain cashshop items (they rotate but theres a chance you'll see them again). The population is not nearly as high as a wow server but you're never alone either, and the combat can be oddly satisfying tor an mmo
i played a free mmo called runes of magic and i did a lot of market manipulation, buying all production runes on the market then reposting them at higher prices and stuff like that
I'll check it out, my only concern there is population, i'll need to check.
I thank you for the suggestion anon, but rarely a free mmo is ideal for roleplaying, both because of low population (unless mainstream free mmo) and because often there are no RP servers.
Are you sure that's all?
Or are there items that were aviable only when subscriptions were still a thing and such?
What about beta items?
is there a site where i can check what is aviable and what is no longer aviable?
Pretty much. /vg/ is just a whole other level. At least here OP has a chance at actual answers rather than someone posting their character half naked and using tilde at the end of every sentence.
I remember in old days i tried lineage
>made a dworf
>make soul shots (something like ammo that everyone needs) for all my cash
>go to a big city
>sit next to other dworf that sells same shit
>make mine 1 cent cheaper
>get cash for next batch
This, for example, woulc be great, since it allows both RP and classic AH whoring and jew activites.
Now the problem is finding a sizeable RP community where gold has actual worth and is sought after. Is FXIV good for this or is WoW better anyway?
Both don't allow to collect EVERYTHING in the game, which sucks, but very few and new MMORPGs only allow this.
SWTOR is aight for that, if you can get into an RP guild as a smuggler or something like that and trade between each other and set up supplies of certain items and run a monopoly on them. It's real easy to get rich on it. At least it was for me. The big con though is that you can only really do it as a sub.
