Do they end up dropping less quality random loot and making you look to buy it instead?

But generally, those on the 'free' plan don't care. I am on a free sub to Age of Conan, and all I really want to do is log in every now and then to talk to friends. Why would I care about endgame raiding power?
This way, the free plans let those play who just want to be social or maybe level up for a bit, and they might buy something like a cosmetic look. It's overall a good way to tailor the payment model to everyone.

Time to finish up my current character's storylines I guess and wait patiently for Guild wars 2.
