Cron Stones

8 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I was always bothered by this, why are Cron Stones 1 million silver worth in npcs? It's so much waaay too expensive, it could easily change the difficulty to enhance things, They should change the price to 250.000 or 100.000 even. I'm sure they have their reasons, I just don't think it's right, please feel free to express your opinion wether you agree or disagree and why. I also think that while the price MUST be lowered, it should become a droppable item from any monster or a mining resource (If not already, don't really know) with the same % to get it as blackstones.

 

Thank you in advance.

Agreed. Enhancing accessories are hard enough. They should at least lower the price for cron stones. As where the price stands now, most people won't even bother using it taking into account the price of gears on marketplace.

I would like some feedback for the link below as well.

Failstaking item

You need about 2100 cron stones on Penta upgrade.

Atm that will be 2.1 billion silver
2100x100k = 210million
2100x250k = 525million

Penta Ogre ring = 18 billion
Penta Nouver = 3-5 billion
Penta Kutum = 3-5 billion

If you have Tet items then 1 billion or 2 billion silver should not be a problem.

Not sure if you're saying wether you agree or disagree, but TET gear doesn't mean you've got multiple billions to spare.

It is designed indirect p2w item for KR

Ideally p2w players have unlimited silver but they don't have time/recourses/ect to be able to just pay and get what they want. 

Let's say ogre ring rarity is the same before our event box. Someone who p2w would use cron stones to enchant ogre ring because the rarity of getting the item off the market, time it takes to build failstacks to get back up to the enchanted ogre ring. 

That is why you may wonder there's a chance of degrade. If there wasn't , cron stones would be imbalanced for p2w players

Independently of whatsoever system-concept is running on black desert, it's still unfair for everyone, not just for 1 kind of player, and a real bad choice from a business' perspective, in order to have your customers buy crap, specially virtual content, you need to make them feel like it's not a complete waste of money, and you do that by making your p2w content ease up the game's difficulty(Failstacking p2w item sales would increase exponentially if players had a way to keep trying to enhance items without having them break, and for that you need Cron Stones, they'll also be forced to use those failstacking items on alts to not waste fs, which means theyd sell even more). P2W players won't really be affected in a negative way  by this either, the chances to succeed or fail remain the same, the p2w items that enhance failstacks will give the same advantage as before, the only advantage compared to now would be you have more tries, but nobody goes around carrying 50 ogre rings, it's most likely to happen that you'll run out of whatever you're trying to enhance before you succeed again, I think it'd be just fine and fair to have a way for our most valuable items not to disappear that easily.

why not make cron stones craftable from the stones you get from that cave full of golems in mediah area near the Kalhk spawn?
