Hi, I've posted a number of other threads on what to buy and where to go to after your done with the red box and most people are telling me to continue on with the essentials line, which is good as it has clarified and answered a lot of my questions. But Im also getting a lot of recommendations to subscribe to Dungeons and Dragons Insider, which is a problem. I am a student and dont have any steady income and so cannot really afford to subscribe to DDI at the moment, so what Im wondewring is; Is DDI required to get the most out of, or even just play the esssentials line (or the game in general) or is it just an added bonus which enriches the game? Kepping in mind that me and my friends are all newbs and many elements that seasoned players may find necessary in DDI may not matter to us. Any advice is helpful.
