An example is you have a fairly small inventory but can buy more slots, or buy a pet that acts as a bank or a vendor. Not strictly necessary, but if you get really into playing some of these things make life complicated enough that you almost feel like you need them.
Question of total ignorance: So, this is a MMORPG without a monthly fee and if I grab it off Steam I'll be good to go?
I, myself, bought it years back and never paid an additional cent. I install it now and again and play a bit, try out the new classes that have been released since I played last (they seem to regularly add new classes). That said, I rarely play it for long so the lack of convenience items never really bothers me.
Can you compare it to Path of Exile? Similar setup, you can play without paying a cent. However, if you like the game and are going to play on any kind of regular basis, having more stash tabs and specialty stash tabs are really something you don't want to do without. That said, I've given more money than I probably should have to PoE, and don't particularly regret it.
