And you can earn the Turbine Points you need to spend in the shop by completing "Deeds" e. g. kill 30 spiders in Breeland or discover all ruins in breeland or all elvish places in Ered Luin or things like that.
You might want to consider going VIP for 60 days which is not too expensive and gives you a whole lot of things for free which you would otherwise have to buy at the shop: Virtue slots for you character (it makes your combat abilities better when you have the right virtues slotted there), money cap, fast travel between stable masters, guild access ...
Or else you could buy a Turbine Point Card to buy what you need. A Point Card will also upgrade your account to premium which gives you also a 3rd character slot.
