I didn't know RoM requires you to pay for end-game access. :-/ Luckily, not too much of a problem. Unless it's P2P. Its free to play but when nearing to end game content. You would have to get Pots, and all Kinds of different things, like armor upgrades, unbinding stones (just incase you want to trade or sell a drop to someone on a bound on pick up item. Instead of vendoring it) Unique mounts. Although certain mounts are available for your toon Asap in Item mall. Just a bunch of expensive little things to make end game content a little less stressful. I Talked to a Main Tank that spends 100$ dollars easily in a matter of a couple of months to run instances. I suppose you realy don't need all those little upgrades from there item mall for end game content if you don't want to? Although I never read anything in RoMs official Forums that you have to buy things for Endgame content. I just read post that the item mall has really nice goodies. if you want the full effect of RoM.
