Elkion tears need to be taken from cashshop

13 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Hello

Finally reached Lev 55 and grinding for xp is now really hard, to gain 1% xp you have to grind a good while for (deopends on the spots). But you can loose 1% in a second some server lags /Pk pvp killers / or even worst AFK PK /follwing autopath and going afk / or finally taking to many mobs on time.

So not to waste your gained xp your forced to get the tears for real cash. This item needs to be an igame available item for silver 100k per tear would be a price i would pay to an npc. Or make it an craft able alchemy or cook item.

Its for me a reason which would make me quit if i only can progress after 55 wiht the litle time i have, apart the work, if i will always need to pay real cash to get the pearls to not loose my gained progress. Spent by far way to much already for char slots warehouse slots weigtreduction bagslots and some costumes.

We are not in Korea and its not an FTP game but still somehow it feels like a FTP game with an PTP Pay to Progress cashshop.

Am i the only one? or what do you think about elion tears

I can understand where you are coming from, but you can buy Elions tear for loyalties.

This is the main reason I don't try to reach lvl 56 yet. It's 4% an hour at sausans when you are not grinding at the best spot...
I support the suggestion.

BUT

They do a looooooooot of money with tears and I don't think they will do something about it.
Plus, imagine how people that spend $$$ on that would react. :/

I feel like it shouldn't be in the cash shop at all and 500 loyalty for one is far too high. (1 for 100-200 loyalty, only way to obtain it seems best, that means players are EXTREMELY limited on how much they can abuse it in PvP and it really would be used for what I feel its intended for... emergencies.)

I already spent also a lot in tears but for further gameplay above 55 its the horror

500 Loyalitys for 1 tear what a present 5 day login to die once for free ;(

 

Ok if you think they may abuse it than make it with a bigger cooldown, or give us the opertunity to pay silver if you die to prevent to loose xp

This sounds like a GREAT idea actually, we still die, lose the gems, trade items or whatever. but we get to keep the xp, actually that brings me to an idea. (Why not make a buyable in-game item that doesn't revive you, but breaks on death and prevents xp loss) Think of it like the ring of sacrifice from dark souls (prevents loss of souls (currency) but shatters on use.

Just an additional button pay 100k in silver on death from your bag would be best, because when you grind you always carry to much silver which is heavy with you ;)

And personnaly i think Daum has to realize we are neither we are koreans nor we are in an f2p game

The problem with that would be PKers, which is probably the more common cause of death. (that and I don't want to carry around 100k silver, I'd rather carry around something that weights maybe 1.00 that costs 100-150k silver)

Seems like a fair in between. Just sucks knowing PA probably won't remove them from cash shop (as you stated, you've spent a lot on tears and why would they kill probably their most common source of revenue?)

Pretty much, I feel like at best it'll just have another issue like Archeage where people spend and spend and spend and spend, not because they want to, but because they feel like they have to in order to get anywhere in the game. (Daum claims they're gamers and I'm sure as gamers they wouldn't want that to happen.... I hope.)

I think the only reason I even buy pearls now is to save me grind time when i die, otherwise as melee I wouldn't even try world bosses
