My only problem with myshop prices/items are the repair powders. The practical need to refine and the success/fail rate for in-game equips even for the now so-called "novice" refine levels (5+) says it all.

On most in-game EQ as far as I remember the base rate to refine to level 6 is now ~50%. Without anvils/stones/etc that's a 50% to succeed, or pay $2.70, or buy 2.7k off of someone to try again once, with the same odds and consequences. A bit steep IMO for a level 5 (out of 13) EQ.

Repairs IMO should be a repeatable, untradeable, high level quest reward as well. Mix them in as an uncommon reward from mine party quests or something. That, or 1 RP should be able to repair any level EQ, instead of 5 for a broken level 5.

This. Or at least give us more repairs for the money.

^ I agree with both of the above.

It's gotten to the point where I don't even bother refining unless I get repair powders from events or one spot drills in Gacha. That way I don't have to waste my money on powders if I screw up in the long stages of refining.

I'm glad that we even have the ability to repair our items. On another game I play, when you refine your equipment and it fails it completely disappears and there is no way to get it back.

I think repairs should be an ingame item. They are the most commonly bought stuff from MS anyway, and 2.7k for 5 reps is too much. While SGI is laughing at the money they got from us buying repairs, we had to spend hundreds of $ trying to refine a dumb lv 10 sword to lv 11 or something. Either the repair prices should go down, or make it an ingame. It is too much.

That statement is a bit flawed.

-If it is- the most commonly bought item from Myshop then that's reason to -not- make it an in-game item. At a business standpoint you wouldn't want to give your most profitable product away for free, then you stop profiting from it.

They give us in-game Repairs, but they're just not as easy to get due to chance. They're in Lv. Up Gift Boxes.

I have no issues with the price of the good, powerful, high level items. What I have an issue with is that even the crappy items have a huge price tag, which is why no one buys them. Items should be priced rightfully by their general usefulness (and their level). And I'm sorry, but many of the older items have incredibly high price tags for what they achieve compared to regular ingame items. Those should be fixed.

I believe the pets and eqs that have been in myshop for ages should be lowered..

Or they should have sales more often, instead of once a year on Black Friday.

Should be like every other month, every two months, something like that.

Either sales for buy one get one free, or things are half off, or even less than half off would be cool. But something to include everything in myshop, not just certain items.

True, you could open the ones you get from leveling up, and get... (maybe) a few powders, or, you could buy the boxes off of other people who either don't want them, or are infinitely creating/power leveling/transferring/deleting on some side account for what are they now? 15 mil?

Still kind of extreme to get an almost essential item in my opinion.

I think myshop is expensive because people are willing to pay for it. People can complain about the price but as long as its still high in the market, why change it? Trickster is even on the top 10 uses for UGC now so I don't expect any sale for a while.

Myshop is not expensive. No matter what the price. Hard cash will always and should always trump meager digital currency.

Not to mention that it's easier for some people to make galder compared to others. Sure, if you're level 50, 5mil in galder might seem expensive. But at level 300, it's chump change.

Think about it. No matter how long you play this game (which is meant to be entertaining), you will not gain even a single penny. Why should another person's hard earned money be worth any less than your pixels? This game is open to anyone. Jobs aren't.


It just bothers me that some little kids (not saying that you are one) complain about how "expensive" dollar-based digital currency is when there are people in the world that will, literally, kill for a real life job. You're just lucky that there's anyone stupid enough to spend money on an online game in times like these.
