Full Costume sets are overpriced for B2P, shouldn't be over $25. 

Pets could be $5 for 1 and $15 and still have tons of people buying them. 

I want to buy $25 of pearls and actually be able to get a 3 pack of pets or a full costume, otherwise it feels like a waste.

I'd rather things be cheaper and buy lots of things, than buy one very expensive item.

And at people saying its half the price of KR, doesnt mean its still not insanely high priced.

 

and my post from the other thread

"Maybe they put the prices like this to make conquers package look like a steal. Then will lower the prices once a bunch of people upgrade their pre-orders."

They are about 3x the price of where they should be even for the high end, it should actually be slightly lower than 1/3rd the current prices.

I mean we already paid for the game charging 2-3x times what we already paid to get 2-3 costumes that are CHARACTER LOCKED is beyond horrible.

Pets are overpriced AF, 27$ for 3.

40$ in CAD.

Why is Canada getting shafted for the lack of maple syrup it ships to Daum.

 

An issue very few mention is the underwear, an appearance item that costs 7$ and other players cannot see it on your character, toggling "Display lingerie"  only lets you the user see it, the game force's other players to see your normal costume and not your sexy lingerie contrary to what is displayed on your screen.

A visual toggle for Lingerie, for the sake of immersion of other players who aren't interested should be added, or a better solution if there are better ideas.

I can understand why they are priced at what they are, games aren't cheap to make or maintain.  Selling more at a lesser price doesn't necessarily mean the game can survive; we seen plenty of MMOs cave with their less expensive cash shops so lot of good that did them.  I'm Canadian so I'm paying even more than what you guys see as high but I can understand why it's priced at what it is currently.

I vote no one spends the free money they gave us, the prices are too high to even use that.

Prices are really unpleasant seeing as not even the 2,500 pearls you get from the conquerors package is enough to purchase a full armor/weapon set.

About what I was expecting. Korean game is Korean. At least the luck undies and pets are the only things I feel the urge to spend on.

EDIT: Nothing from the cash shop should be character locked though. If I spend real money on it, I should be able to move it to any character I want, any time I want. It's really unfair to those of us who play lots of characters.

In KR, a Ghillie suit is 440 pearls. In NA, its 3200 pearls.

Costumes are too overpriced... $32 for a costume and weapon is more than the base game!  Everything in general just looks a tad overpriced... People might not buy anything because it's so expensive.

It's way expensive considering:

-Buy to play game

-In-game "gear" appearance is so underwhelming compared to cash shop costumes that you have no real options

Kind of feels like a major cash grab and a punch in the face

I was naive to think that the 2,500 pearls would be enough for a costume + one pet, I was way off there. I now know why they're only giving us one conqueror's costume.

The only reasonably priced things are the dye boxes. And maybe some of the expansion slot stuff. Maybe. Costumes costing more than the game? I have no words for that. Definitely won't be buying any additional pets at this price either. If I feel like the one from the pre-order isn't sufficient enough to not feel like I'm at a disadvantage, I guess I'll just have to stop playing.

Sounds like a sustainable business plan; they just need to get the prices right.

Costumes are way too over price for a game you already pay for, I refuse to pay more than 20$ for a costumes, and only if it is really cool like I still wish the option of getting a cheaper one.

Please re-consider the prices for the launch, other wise huge disappointment!!

Random one-use dyes should be purchased for silver. If I spend money on dye I would expect to get an endless bottle of exactly the color I want. And be able to use it on all my characters.

I had enough of the RNG dye from Vindictus, let's not start bad cash shop policies in this game as well.

Won't be buying 80% of the stuff I had planned now that I see the ridiculous prices you are trying to charge.

We get 2500 pearls when we preorder conquerors pack. I feel a full set costume should be at max 2500 pearls in my opinion.

It's not supposed to be sustainable. the whole point is to cash grab and drain the whales. It was a good decision on their part

Same here, 2,500 should get me both considering that later I'll get boring and may invest another 25$ for another costume and pet.

In KR, a Ghillie suit is 440 pearls. In NA, its 3200 pearls.

....

Both versions use a different metric for pearls. For example 800 pearls in KR is around 50 usd and 3200 pearls here is 32 usd

That said, yes the pricing for pets and costumes (maybe horse costumes as well) is too high. When you can't even get a full costume set for the pearls in the Conq package, the prices are too high. And as people pointed out to get tier 3 pets is extremely expensive.
