Cash shop prices for most stuff is way to High.. up to 32$/€ For a Costume? really? GW2 they cost like max 1000 gems (10$/€ is 800 gems) and they are doing fine with that..  unless 10$/€ is like 2000 pearls.. ect this will not be taken very good..

yep i agree and what makes it even better is the fact u can convert your ingame gold to gems so u could just grind for something u wanted

They also don't need a lot of people to buy it when 1 purchase equals 2-4 purchases if it's 10 bucks or less.

See? It's because of people like YOU that we suffer, with this mentality you defend them, really don't you think that a LOT of players will NOT buy at these prices?

Why is this so hard ;_;

$32 for costume + wep, $9 for a pet... whyyyyyy :(

Lets hope they will listen and cap it at weap + costume at 20. At least it's a less scary number D:

Pets I thought were going to be around 4-5 dollars. 9 means I don't even really want to breed them.

$32.00 for a complete costume seems like a bartering tactic.  After all the complaining, they will lower it to 25.00 or something and everybody will thank them because they think they are listening to their complaints about the prices. The reality is that they probably already had the price in mind that they were willing to accept from the beginning.  Just speculation of course.  =D

Oh God I hope so. I certainly won´t write a reply filled with gratitude though if that´s going to be the case O. o
my nerves...

The prices for every thing are ok I guess, except for the costume and horse armor costumes. I mean really they cost more than the game that is way too high. I bought the conquerors package so I spent $100 and have 2500 pearls and I cant even hardly get any thing with them. I know the $100 was for the other items and bonuses but I was just hoping that the 2500 pearls would have some more value. I'm not raging i'm just suggesting a slight price decrease as it stands now they are a little to high for me to ever purchase anything. I spent the money on the game and was happy to get the conquers package to support the game but I don't ever see myself spending $30 bucks to just get some armor costume. That is way too steep and i'm kinda surprised they are even priced that high to begin with, it is that absurd. I mean really...

You mean 12€ underwear+ 30€ avatar+5€ random dyes? Vindictus is worse but this is B2P soooo maybe you're not wrong

Yeah, but Vindictus is F2P. Those prices for a B2P game like BDO are just insane.

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

One minor thing that bothers me is that the region storage expansion for Serendia and Balenos costs the same even though you are only upgrading the storage of 2 cities vs upgrading 3 with the Calpheon.

Not sure what they could do with the first rank add 1 slot options (maybe give the option to pick where an additional slot goes), but why not change the Serendia and Balenos to +6 and +12 for the tier 2 and 3 upgrades so that the storage upgrades give the same $ per slot investment as Calpheon.

People with thirsty mentality would never make it in the business world long. They'd milk the few costumers they have dry and have no one else to turn to.

Cheaper prices that suit everyone are far more profitable than a price that's set to only a select few. It takes brains to grasp this. Don't expect too many people to be able to do it. :P

...Just wait till they allow selling this shit on the AH and still try to claim it's not P2W. I'm pretty disappointed personally. I just hope to get 6 months before the kill this like AA did. RIP

How do any of these item=p2w? I get whining but blindy jumping to conclusions because butthurt is a bit sad

Those prices are even crazier than the prices in the cash shop of Vindictus. And THAT is something you don't see every day. :o

This is not entirely true. Dyes in vindictus are 1.9$ each while 50 cents in BDO both with rng.

Also, in vindictus, while it is true that some old outfits are either 8$ or 20$, the new ones are full priced at 28-32$

$15 for a full set is the most I'll pay for costumes unless it has some amazing quality and changes to particle effects or whatever fancy stuff they can put in to make it WORTH the increased price.

I don't really know about pets. I guess a small reduction would be good. As a buy-to-play I expected prices to be cheaper, and while it could have been worse...it could be much better. Hope they decide to change prices before launch or the cash shop might struggle to make sales with such high prices.

The KR version has periodic sales on particular items.  With these prices, when they do put them on sale it'll feel like Christmas.  But perhaps that is their plan - it'll be like shopping at Kohls!
