However, it is good to remember that you can easily obtain several copies of Portacrystal, which allows you to place a teleport point on the map, by completing certain quests in the game. As for the Awakening Stones, you can get them by opening chests, but also buy them from certain merchants. As for other microtransactions:

  • Harpy Baits: These can be purchased from in-game merchants, but also acquired by doing certain activities
  • Rift Crystals: by opening chests, reactivating stones for Pawns, and completing certain missions
  • The modification elements for your Pawn and your character, you just need to pay a certain amount in gold to the Hairdressers in the game
  • Tents: you can collect them directly next to certain campfires, by opening chests, by exploring a little, or by purchasing from in-game merchants

As you can see, most microtransactions do not give a really interesting advantage and you can fully enjoy the game without making these purchases.
