How much Have you Spent?

Not true, in fact they actually foreshadowed it in early announcements. People just believe whatever they want to.

Is true that's why there was this(because it was changed):

We understand that this change will spark discussions, and have asked Pearl Abyss to share their thoughts behind this decision.

Pearl Abyss considers in-game accessibility to Pearl Items necessary in Black Desert.

In all honesty though it really isnt needed. Mem frags only show their real usefulness when repairing boss gear, because the gear itself is too expensive to replicate. And by the time you actually do need that gear you are reaching levels 56 and beyond. At that point you can easily solo the disco balls. Relics have a pretty good rate afk fishing even during nonevent times. Stacking those up, till you have enough to do a dozen or so rounds of relic scrolls, youre looking at about 50 or frags, enough to do full repair at least once. If you roll your upgrade and failstacks smart enough, youll only be decreasing durability at the higher enchants.

So yes there is quite a bit of time investment in that scenario, but it is an mmo and time investment is a given.

AM's just speed up that process(althoughbeit a significant amount)

No, not that. I'm talking about way back I believe well before the game launched.

They said something about not planning to have the ability to sell pearl items available at launch.

Most people saw that and thought "oh, never?", but the rest of us see "at launch" and realize that it's a function which is coming later on.

I am sure they will make crazy sales of Artisan Memories now that everyone aims to upgrade their gift boss pieces. It is a really powerful CS item (in terms of "convenience" - ofc ofc a horse is a horse...). I am already noticing much less sales on the Market place together with lower prices. People are spending everything on boss gear it seems (little did they know). Everyone will be broke very soon. :D

At least we know why pearl shop prices are what they are; because some people pay them.

Saw some polls, and the average is 100~200.  Did 150$ myself.  What in the world did you buy with that?  Maxed out wt/inventory and t4 pets along with 6 premium costume a week don't add up to that much.  And since you can't gift anymore, giving people gift cards is the only way to let friends have a bit extra in game.

 

Can't post that without giving us a general idea on what you bought man.  Just ignore the flame.  Most of the people doing it are completely dependent on players like you to fund their value pack and costumes.

I spent about $180

I made the mistake of bothering to even try the dye RNG.  That was a huge waste of money.

Thats not what I remember them saying at all.. They said the reason the prices were so high in the cash shop was to prevent that exact thing. The thing they said they dont see adding at launch was any kind of subscription type item (value pack). Either way, my issue is they were very misleading, and no one should deny that. They should have been very upfront about everything, then I think there would have been a lot less issues. But they like to dance around their wording way too much. 

If you're right you're right. But, my point stands.. I wouldn't have put any money in for outfits if I knew they would be able to be placed in market later. It was purely a milking technique by them, so now I wont invest another dime. Its been the first game I've felt the money I invested wasnt worth it. AA I put a bit in and bought the higher tier founder as well, but I honestly got amazing game play in their alpha, just hated it after launch, because they started with their shop BS too. 

Anyways, take care ^.^

Can you let us in on your secret of sniping? Or is it just a matter of trying often enough?

I usually do get the "Failed to purchase item." message, so I take it I was quick enough to enter my bid, but not lucky enough to score a pack. That it?
