In some games, $5 pets and $15-20 costumes only have 90 day durations. 

You mean 1 game? Which is maplestory.

BNS has pretty much the right model when it comes to Cash Shop prices, with it being not too low or too high. Most costumes cost between $10 and $15, with some at $20-25. The pricing for our version looks close, but still high. I can see pricing of this sort in a F2P game like Dragon Nest (where all costume sets including weapon are about $30), but not so much in a B2P game..

There are a lot of things that people would feel inclined to buy in BDO. Costume set for character is obviously #1, because gear doesn't change look very much at all.. Horse Costumes is another, for the same reason, but still less likely than just the base character costume. Pets yet another. You're looking at spending like $50-60 or more per character right now ON TOP of the B2P Purchase Price.

I can't help but feel like they are trying to milk us for some easy money. I just hope they stick to their fair model and don't put any p2w items in the Cash Shop in the near future, or start making changes that emphasize immense benefit for people that use the Cash Shop constantly rather than the normal players.

If it gets that bad, it'd be cheaper to just make the P2P servers like RU has and give us those things included. You'd probably end up spending less than if you had to buy items in the Cash Shop constantly. Does anyone else agree P2P may actually end up costing less in the long run? lmao!

Penalties for PvE deaths.

  • Crystal Breaking

  • Losing Enchant levels of equipped items

  • Experience Loss

Am i reading this wrong or do we actually lose enchants on PvE deaths without negative karma?

Updated the OP, Enchantment loss will only happen when you have negative karma.

@CM_Jouska To clarify servers will share the same family/character name database correct? If in the future you decide to launch with multiple servers and choose to merge some. Names will not be compromised correct? Also, will there be a server switch option?

Just going to put this out there guys. I looked up "The price of the cash shop is too damn high" for a meme. And instead I got black desert costumes as my image results. Go look if you want a good laugh. xD

Pearls Translate to every 1,000 = $10

Base Game: $29.99

Costume: $22

Costume + Weapon: $30

Why would I pay the same amount for a costume as the game itself? Psssh.

Edited by Yvett
Bonus Pearls on purchase make costumes cost as much as the initial game purchase. Not making the pricing for me better in any way, just keeping it factual.

That's poor marketing thinking tho, example:

32€ for a costume, high so you sell 10= 320€

15€ for a costume, cheaper so you sell 50= 750€

Thinking in long terms is waaaay better for economy.

Wat?

Will there be special offers from time to time? Like "Save 10% on these items during this time or holiday"?

Sorry but no way those prices can fly on costumes, way too high! If this game was free to play, maybe. Even then $30 for a costume is outrages. $10-20 really should be the price point because right now you won't be getting any extra money from me and a lot of people if you're asking for that outrages price.

@CM_Jouska I don't think you'll get many sales with the costume pricing being so high.

Do the other penalties increase in percentage based on karma tier? For example, does a white player have a chance of crystals breaking on PvP death, or does that penalty kick in at lower karma?

Wat?

...Is it so hard to understand? It's a simple example of why lower costumes prices would be better for us and for DAUM.

Just how it sound. If you sell something for less, you'll have more people willing spend their money on these items, but if you have it at a higher price, less people are going to buy it. It's simple economic 101.

My main issue is how much it costs to get pets to max level :[ If it was 1/2 the price would probably try to do that at launch but not any more.

I'd be willing to spend $9 on a pet but $32 for a costume, no way.
