just a sidenote:

this is a costume that was never sold in the shop and never will be available in the shop. it was in the conquorer preorder package.

It's being sold in KR at the moment will probably roll out in RU and Japan next. Might not get sold here, but it is being sold in their cash shop else where. Never say never too.

I wish, just once, that an MMO would offer some really unique items for Founders and pre-orders that truly aren't available at any point after launch.

I'm not talking about fouders titles/achievements, I mean armor costumes, mounts, etc that are visually unique but otherwise pretty much the same as other items available in game.

THIS is one reason why I stopped ordering founders packs. The other reason is because half the MMO's I've tried lately have started to fail/lose a lot of subs before they even passed beta phase.

Yeah lack of armor variation, and locking the dye system for the most part behind the cash shop is terrible.

 

Go home Tumblr you're drunk.

Now, having said that, my biggest worry about longevity of this game (besides legion release) is the gear looks and progression. One of the most important parts, or the most important part, of any MMO is gear progression. This game doesn't give you any excitement when it comes to gear. You get your set and level it up the entire time you play. There is no real sense of progression.

There is still gear progression.  Go grind.

This is not (insert random western MMO from last 15 years)....

My Problem isn't that the Costumes are to expensive or have stats i could care less about that if i wanted them i would buy them im not poor, my problem is there are none to earn in game since farming cool looking Armor, sets and watching my Character visually become more powerful after a hard task was always something that motivated me in RPGs this is gone in this game completely, i see looks as a form of reward and i think that's a stable for RPGs in general and in old games you could see what a character had accomplished based on that.

Just buying it in the Shop and looking like a mighty Warrior at lvl 1 seems very pointless to me and contradictory to the essence of RPGs i would never pay for costumes based on that alone.

Just to make that even more clear i would actually be very willing to pay for (hard) content that would make it possible for me to farm it ingame like it is supposed to be.

Personally, I'm enjoying the modest armor styles. They aren't over the top typical fantasy armor that every other MMO ever has, they're believable and follow the theme of the game.

I will admit that the archer got the short straw though, her armor is unfortunate.

This is one of many gripes I have about this game and it's despicable that if you want to look different you have to spend another 30 for a damn costume. Like, really, who thought this would be a good idea?

The game is mostly a copy, paste and westernized with slight modification. I highly doubt they are going to change the way they do things by much.

I'll probably stop playing once i hit 50. The cash shop is just too expensive imo, not worth while. This is coming from a guy who spent thousands on GW2 within 3years. BDO cash shop items are not value for the money, not even during sale. They got the pricing way off.

Casting magic and actually fighting are not comparable.

I know plenty of Korean grandmothers far more than capable of fighting...

Whoever said that lied. You can't even be a male archer or a woman warrior (Valkyrie isn't the same)

Yeah, no doubt an over-exaggerated advertisement. Even if Valkyrie counts as a female warrior, there's no female Berserker...

Google caters your search results to things that interest you.

So we all know what you like now.

Intriging, but highly disturbing. I used a pc from one of my friends house.

Those are so cool! *Q*

I'd be happy with just "regular" armor, something Skyrim or Witcher have. I can't hate Ranger's armors more than I do.

I just want to put some pants on my dark elf. >-<

Even NPCs have better armor than Ranger does...

Haha, that's cute.  I loved Skyrim though. If I could play it as an MMO I'd still be playing it.

If we're being honest, Skyrim modders design nicer armour than 99% of game developers. At a gorgeous resolution at that, no pixelated anything when the entire set is 4k.

I love this game! but this, is the #1 thing that i truly HATE, i will NOT spend$30 on armor... thats stupid, $15? ill consider it. 

I love MMO's for this exact reason, gear customization, this game, i thought would be awesome for that exact reason! but its a HUGE let down. 

I am truly disappointed. and wtf is up with no helmets??? like.. what were the creators thinking??? i really hate that only aspect of the game, every thing else i can work with, but the armor, man... I probably wont be playing this game for that much longer untill they do some thing about this. and no way will i spend $30 on a costume... plus, they dont even look that good! (my main is warrior, and they look kind of stupid) 

damn, way to ruin what could have been an amazing aspect to a game... if they make it $15, it would be a lot more considerable, since most games a sub is $15 a month, and i can do that,. not freaking $30! stupid stupid stupid.

Yeah, I'd honestly buy 2 costumes for $15 in a month rather than 1 costume for $30. It's the same amount of money spent, but you get more.

A single costume simply isn't worth $30. v.v

Only time I bought a costume around that price (25 euro) was in Dota2, but that was Arcana. Changes skill animations, teleporting animation, graphic effects of some items, voice acting, some are customizable, like have 2-3 different color or model versions, and they generally make your hero almost a completely different hero.

Here it's a shirt, pants and shoes. Sometimes a hat. Just regular clothes.

If a costume enabled me to change my character's attacks color (Ranger has very bright green) to whatever I want, like purple- then maybe. >.> Because that'd be cool.

But I can buy a shirt and pants for that price in rl. xD And maybe shoes if they're on sale lol.

Here's a little math

What's better ?

$1,000 from 1 person

or

$10 from 150 persons (and most likely the $1,000 from that 1 person too)

I really don't see how Daum can make more money from a few large transactions compared to many small transactions

The same way all of the mobile games do. Unfortunately it's the few whales that account for the vast majority of their revenue.
