Article Idea: The Grind club

Post by Krishina » Tue Jun 21, 2011 2:13 pm

I hadn't heard of this place until I saw the anniversary party details and it took me a while to learn where it was. When I went to visit my only reaction was WOW. And curiosity what the VIP area is like since I can't find anything about it anywhere and I'm not sure if the high cost is worth it.

There are location guides for all the other Rubi-Ka clubs; could we please have one about here too?

you get a permanent VIP key from the receptionist Alba for 20 million I think, and temporary ones (4 hrs I think) for 4 million.

IMHO, at this time neither situation is worth the cost. There's nothing really in the VIP room to justify the cost, unless you like fuchia-pink wallpaper.
And now You know!

I saw it on test and I agree with Scoop, not really worth it. While I like to support the fun little things that FC throws at us, sometimes they get a little confused about cost vs reward.

A guide should be easy enough though.

I have a perma key on my main, it really ISN'T worth it, apart from bragging rights, same as having a lvl200 Yalm Stilletto (she's got one of those too :wink: ).
Basically, it's a cash sink...

The temp passes were about 400k when I looked, unless I'm misremembering dreadfully. Which is considerably better for just taking a curious poke around, but from comments here doesn't seem worth it.
