9$ for a full skill reset

96 posts in this topic

Posted

Paying for a skill reset is the most mind boggling stupid and obscene idea I've ever seen in an MMO to be honest. I mean, it doesn't exactly matter, but it's literally a cash grab especially when just about every other MMO on the face of the planet that isn't horrible has it available for free at the cost of a few dimes relative to the game's currency. 

What mmos are these? Cause every single mmo I have played that had full skill resets they were usually a pretty penny so I am simply curious what games have them free or cheap

Paying for skill resets is a disgraceful cash grab. One free one isn't enough and Loyalty points is Laughable.  I'm not even gonna dignify responding to the "infinite skill points" BS.   There are so many ways They can make money, they don't need to get this greedy and stupid.  Not to mention it will stifle creativity with builds.
Guess what happens if people "Just don't play it and stfu" , They start putting more behind paywalls  and /or the game dies.  
They have every right to make money, but if they keep whoring content behind the cash shop, most people are gonna get turned off and move on despite how pretty the pixels look.   

Skill resets should cost in game silver. Wanna sell VANITY ONLY Costumes, pets, furniture... go for it!  To sell in game advantages or block important features behind paywalls or Time played is just ridiculous and a blatant and obvious cash grab the only a mindless mouth breather with daddy's credit card or no clue on how to manage their money would support(although all the fanboys seem to be multi-billionaires) 

And if someone wants to start a thread to voice their concern, why not let them?  BDO isn't gonna send you a paycheck for publicity, get a life, are you that pathetic that it hurts your delicate feelings when someone points out flaws in something you love??    Are we gonna get into a PC>Xb>PS4 argument??? 

I see people on these forums accuse anyone who voices a concern or complains they are not happy or worried about the direction this game may or may not be heading in, and in fact its those people who are the troll and cry babies.  These forums are no different than any other video game forum- just a bunch of Bleep holes acting like they are gods gift to the planet and nothing more than silly memes/gifs/insults and BS to back it up.

Think the cash shop is fair, then stfu, dust you or your parents credit card off and go piss your money away.  I don't care if you're a hobo or donald trump, spending hundreds of dollars on ONE video game is just stupid.  I'm not rich, I'm not poor, I just have some common sense and restraint.  You people who defend the cash shop sound just like a crack head would defending their addiction.

Skill reset is definitely not P2W. lf anything internet search can yield you numerous builds that will work without risk. 

However in a game that promotes secret combos/ cancellations; putting any testing chance behind a cash wall is a real cash grab move. There is nothing to justify there.

P2W? No

Total d.ck move? Yep

Bruh every class has staple skills that you pretty much have no choice but to get. There's not much room for experimentation. This isn't AA. There are some skills you MUST get and very few that are optional. If you get rank 1 of an optional skill and you don't like it? No biggie. If you level said skill up 10 times KNOWING YOU DIDN'T LIKE IT then you're just dumb.

 

Yea? What if a new player does not know that certain skills take up only if you skill them to the max? They wanna try every skill up until to the max and then decide?

I see only one dumbass here, and that is you being blindfolded by the love to a video game that he wants so hard to succeed.

WoW has a sub though so I'm just comparing with f2p/b2p games to be fair.

Of the decent MMO I've played in recent-ish time, WoW, Guild Wars 2, FFXIV (resets stat point allocation), Wildstar, and that's it I guess. I tend to stay away from absolute garbage Korean/Chinese MMOs that nickle and dime you for everything.

People defending this are like republicans. Defending no-GMO labeling probably and are a fan of Monsanto and corn syrup.

 

Brainwashed potatoes.

"A panel of experts, the Royal Society and food-safety scientists in regulatory agencies around the world, all have concluded that the study does not demonstrate that the GM potatoes were unsafe in any way."

LOL why would you try every skill to max?? You use it at Rank 1 you don't like it don't use it?

What classes are you people playing that allow you to have so many different builds?? I just don't understand.

They honestly should make skill resets free though. Not because people need them, but because they are worthless.

Of all the things to whine about in the cash shop, this is not one of them. There aren't even "builds" in this game. You just pick the skills you use most and invest points. It's not like you have to respec from your PvP to your tank spec so you can do raids.

On top of that there's no cap to the skill points you can earn, so eventually you can iron out your bad build. And there are resets available for mileage. And a free one at 45. If you can't figure out which skills you want to use with those options you deserve to lose $9 to the cash shop.

EDIT: WoW charging you 50g per reset is worse than the cash shop resets in BDO. You actually HAD to change spec in WoW. You can use the same spec for everything in BDO and not be at any disadvantage. There is just very little need to reset unless you utterly ruin your spec out of carelessness.

Lel, obvious troll is obvious... You talk about reading and then proceed to say why try the skills to max... HA

Skills gain interactions as you level them. Or they do on tamer at least.

The cancel skills have "Ultimate" on them no?

Lol absolutely not that simple. There are many secret combos revealed on public forums, and many held back by people/guilds who have been fiddling with the system.

You really thought SECRET COMBOS would have a tag on the skill description?

Like l said; game promotes the discovery of secret combos, and then put any chance of testing around behind paywall.

Before you kids say '9$ aint that much'; it is the cost of one reset. How many combinations do you think you would need to try for testing stuff.

Also mileage store reset is pathetic. lt resets ONE grade of skill only. lf you wanted to test lvl4 version of skill, you need 4 of those to reset afterwards. And that is for just one skill.

 

lt is not P2W, because you can search and use a cookie cutter build that %99 of population uses that works good enough. But you definitely CAN NOT experiment around without whaling out.

Anyone with half a brain should recognize this and not even bother buying them. Experimentation is worthless, not because there is a cookie cutter build, but because there is very little to experiment with

OP, stop with the "experimentation" argument. There's not enough skills in each class to experiment with. If you actually need to spend $9 on a skill reset, you're an idiot, plain and simple. The skill resets ARE a cash grab, because only idiots will purchase them.
