So far these (highly unscientific) results show that most players are not happy with the prices, but are still going to play the game. I think Daum is probably poised right on the edge of the precipice here. As it is, the game probably won't be hurt by this. Sure, reviewers will mention the high prices but will add that you probably don't need anything from the cash shop. But if Daum pushes any harder, this could change and there could be repercussions for the game's success.

Prices are a bit to high for me personally but I'll live with it, hate to think tho that their gonna lose alot of sales leaving it this high.

Still gonna buy my fish and gillie and something pretty regardless.

Prices still too high, even with sale, but I'm still going to enjoy the hell out of this game.

The costumes are very well made. They do look really good in game. But the price does not justify buying them.

Yeah for $30 I'd assume where the whole kitchen sink is. Evolve tried charging $15 each for characters for its game, which even that is steep. I guess we just vote with our wallets here.

Option number 5. I'm going to get my $100 worth that I already paid for. Otherwise, they're not going to get anymore of my money until they lower the cash shop prices and stop slapping us with 'we're so generous we'll reduce it by $3!' and sales. I can buy another whole b2p game for the price of a costume.

Barring the sale, they might as well have kept it the same.

Looking through the update they haven't changed a dern thing outside of party loot system.

The prices are definitely higher than the current norm for these types of games There is no arguing that. Honestly makes me glad i got the conq package so i won't really have to worry about it for awhile. It really just comes down to how desperate people get and are willing to pay it anyway. Duam is banking on that, it's up to the community as a whole to vote with their wallets. That is the only way prices will change. If the prices never come down it means people are paying it and just talking out there ass on the forums. So in the end we have only ourselves to blame if nothing changes.

I think we've already heard most people opinions, theres the whiners and then the people who know the prices will go down again and don't give two sh*ts :)

the price change from $32 to $29 just feels like a slap in the face considering the costume should be the difference between the two. OK, maybe a bit more than that, but not much.

I couldn't care less about the prices. If I like something enough chances are I'll just buy it anyway.

Is there anything close to that good looking in game? (like....can you find these things?)

You can check all the armors here: https://bdofashion.wordpress.com/category/armor-sets/

Keep in mind the game is endless, those are ALL armors available (though I think there is an Awakened armor for each class, not sure) and you can't customize them for free as well since dyes are locked in the cash shop.

God I hate that. Hell Warframe even does that better >.>

For a game we're buying straight off the shelve why are there so many microtransactions? I guess they gotta make money off it somehow, but some practices really need to be phased out. Hell do a Guild Wars 2 and just scatter the dyes as random drops among the mobs. Because I assume with this one, you can get the same dye? Possibly have to roll that money dice until you get your desired colour.

0,5 euro-1,20 euro. You buy a random shade of the color (so if you want light blue you might not get it) and each dye has only 1 use.

There was a merchant selling dyes in the game, but they removed him in all game versions I think.

This is my main complaint.  I'd probably be mostly ok with it if they included a black-white spectrum because currently it's absurdly hard to get blacks or whites.

And if you want Pure black or Pure White you need to buy the random box

The dye situation is pretty retarded. It's like Vindictus on steroids, which is a really bad thing. I'd honestly rather just pay extra and get the damn color i want. At least give the option. As is i probably won't bother dying anything.

The only saving grace about the current dye system is that they at least made dyes buyable with loyalty points
