I am a free-to-play player. The two things that bug me the most about being free is the gold cap (2 gold), and inventory space. I am not looking to buy a subscription, as I can't afford it. But if I purchase a points card (or even the Shadows of Angmar "complete" game - availabe at GameStop for $10), does this upgrade me to Premium/VIP? If it upgrades to VIP, I understand that once it downgrades (the points card expires), the several items I am concerned about (gold and inventory) would stay (in essence making me a Premium Member? I am a bit confused on these issues. Help!
Also, as a free player, what content of the original game (or expansions) do I have access to? Is it content other than the Epic Quests?
Thanks to anyone who can clear up my obvious confusion regarding these matters.
