3600 Pearls for costume? (Yes, this again.)

370 posts in this topic

Posted

Daum, dude, man. 

Come on.

Like seriously, come on.

 

2900 for the new angelwear, looks hot.

But wait, there's more.

Aint right without the underwear.

+700 pearls.

Total cost for costume: $36

Seriously. Guys. Just. Come on.

 

I'd buy every single costume if it was $10 a set, somewhere reasonable. This is said into the dirt by now I think, right? Don't we all feel this way? Customization is given at gun point in BDO.

 

Daum, dude, be cool man. Lot of us are just teens.

Man.

It's probably too late to change anything, the prices are set and the cashgrabbing has only just begun.

 

I would have no problem with the costumes if you somehow got them account-wide or maybe even get pearls account-wide, since everything's so expensive, but you don't. I don't think Daum is willing to make that push for their community too since they won't be making millions on the daily anymore.

Well the cash shop might not be marketed towards your demographic unfortunately. :\

I did odd jobs for cash when I wanted to buy stuff for MMOs in high school.  You could make enough to buy that costume in a day, easily.

I have a pretty fulls schedule between school and a junior internship, working for money comes few and far for me personally. As it stands my Dad is already giving me the stink eye over what I did buy. :<

 

You said it best though, it's not for my demographic.

Yeah I was lucky to live in small-ish town so those kinds of jobs were easy to come by and I had time for it.  I hope you can save up enough to get the costumes you want though. c:

Daum, dude, be cool man. Lot of us are just teens.

Even those of us who aren't teens are avoiding it at this price.

However, because there are players who don't care about being overcharged they are providing plenty of revenue. "Thanks" to those players it is unlikely that they'll adjust the pricing to more reasonable levels anytime soon.

you know they just released an item that counters ghillie suits right?

If you take a look at the costs of crafting it, it's unlikely anyone will ever make it.

  • 1x Magic Crystal of Enchantment: Vision
  • 10x Oil of Storm
  • 10x Herbal Gunpowder
  • 10x Sticky Liquid
  • 10x Blackstone Powder

That literally costs hundreds of thousands of silver to make. The recipe can be whittled down, but even at 1x each of those items it's still costly.

The solution is simple. Don't buy costumes. I'm not buying the items I would like because I also think they are overpriced. It's the only thing that will probably make them realize costumes are too expensive. If not, I will live without costume and they won't have my money, simple as that.

No, I've bought one costume, i MIGHT buy another if a good one ever comes out. I don't need to buy them all.

I just realized how awesome these cashshop prices are now... it means fewer players running around with wings. B|

Its a shame they don't allow us to buy costumes, cosmetics, and pets on the Auction house like they do for the Korean version, which is free to play....

Luxury goods are luxury.


You might figure this out at some point as you transition out of being a teenager.

Costumes are optional luxuries. and no intelligent business is going to market their product to a demographic that has little to no money.

As it is costumes are cheaper here than they are in Korea with the exception of the Ghillie Suit and by a 10-35% margin at that.

No, it's not a shame. It's to prevent actual p2w.

You don't need costumes to play this game, those are the prices Daum charge and those are the prices some of us are happy paying. If you don't have the disposable income to buy the costume, then don't buy them and quit whining.

I don't think it's too late. It's never too late to change a few prices.

How would allowing cosmetics, skins, and pets on the auction house be pay2win? We paid an initial price for the game. If I feel like grinding out 3 million silver, I should be able to buy what I want on the auction house?

That is where I am. I dont like first of all being coerced to the cash shop with the lack of in game looks/inventory space but then when I get there the prices are just ridiculous and the limits are also. So I wont spend a dime.  M
