cm jouska Exp scroll warning - Exp book incoming? Answer please!

Hello guys,

exp scrolls now come with a warning saying they won't stack with Book of Experience. Book of experience is a subscription item that gives +50% combat exp for a month. Can @CM_Jouska confirm if this is coming or not next week?

It would make business sense and give people the chance to catch up.

Below is an image of a normal exp scroll - this warning never came up before.

Below is the book from Russia / Korea and seems to have been added to our database:

OMFG if they add a subscription option too they better lower the cost of cosmetic items / add SOME way to get them in game. 

Also as a side note, given how little xp you get at cap it seems like this would be a requirement for anyone hoping to stay competitive in PvP :/

I highly doubt a subscription item would come to a B2P game.

 

And please note that KR or RU, the game is extremely grindy than NA/EU

The warning was added for a good reason. They wouldn't have bothered.

Pretty sure it's always said that... there was some prompt warning me that it wouldn't stack with some buff during headstart.

The warning was added for a good reason. They wouldn't have bothered. 

You say that... but the level 49 quest still says to enable pvp you have to beat the quest despite it being enabled at 45 without telling you.

And, as I said, pretty sure that warning was always there.

Sure. Why not add a 50% Life EXP for 24 hours now you are on it?... Sure make everyone who pay level up easily so the gap between payed and none payed players will be so spread that pvp is not worth it? I would love to get to 56+ fast so I can beat the shit about of people who is level 50-52.... Make everything easy... Why not make a ArcheAge 2.0? I think it is the best idea ever! Vote for me and I will make you win! Just a note; If they should add something like that it should ONLY be in the loyal shop! And yet I would not vote for it!

No it hasn't. I used 2 of these scrolls yesterday and they were instant cast. I have used the pearl store exp scrolls by accident due to trying to change from gillie to normal set armor, the warning has never been there.

People, you know how it works.

DAUM wants as much of your money as possible. There is no doubt or discussion over this part, it's a simple fact.

Now question is how do they do it.

First they keep CS moderate, to keep people from rage quitting, to keep them in game and make them invest their time into it.

CS has some options and people spend. Once people have most of stuff from CS and sales drop slightly they introduce more stuff to CS, and people buy more.

Slowly over time CS becomes more and more P2W, people complain a bit but live with it since they already invested a lot in game, both time and some cash and they don't want just outright quit.

 

Over time as investment is higher, CS gets some really stupid P2W items, and at that time people have already invested so much in the game they stick with it.

DAUM goes to vacations, and buys villas and expensive cars with your money. Money you threw in for virtual P2W items.

DAUM wins, you lose. And noone else to blame but yourself.

 

End of story.

Hobbies are an investment. You spend money for time wasted, anyone else expecting different is clearly imbecilic.

Im just gonna say it out loud

 

P2W.

where are all the kids defending Daum's shop now? It hasn't even been 2 months since release and there are already inclinations of p2w store (that was faster than other regions) with this book and with

"pearl item"?? ? what pearl item? lmao. This was not in the scroll description pre-patch and yes there is a pearl item xp scroll thats obtainable through achievements (leveling up etc) but are they talking about that scroll or something new? 

 

In b4 they add some ridiculous p2w consumable in the cash shop with blader/plum release and use it as an excuse to make it "fair" for players to catch up 

 

we need some clarification asap because as it looks right now it seems like bdo in the west will go p2w even faster than the other regions

Hahahaha.

Game is Buy to Play ($30), much needed items are about $60 extra (pets, weight limit, inv space), and now there's going to be a subscription.

Jesus christ, this game is going to cost a fortune in the long run to play optimally.

Yeah but there is a difference do you spend some normal amount of cash for a hobby, or you throw a whole fortune into it. :)

The second is clearly money waste.

Who are you to determine that for someone?

I mean yes they can't determine that for someone, but things like this become MANDITORY in a game that's end game content is pretty much entirely PvP oriented.  If you want to not get one shot, you have to keep up in level and gear.  If people who play all day also get an extra 50% xp on top of that whenever they please, how does anyone but the whales compete in end game PvP?

After 55 gear matters much much more than levels. at 56 there's almost no more skill points worth investing in as a ranger.

XP bonuses aren't P2W anyway. P2W isn't defined by an xp bonus

"There's almost no more skill points worth investing" - Ohh god. You must be a fisher! If that's what you think is the big different between each level I feel really really bad for ya.
