Trickster is World wide MMO game so people its little harder to find balance between ms cost in relation to galder amount because people in some country make less or more from investing same portion of their time.
There are much less people with access to Myshop compared to the amount of people with access to galder (everybody), making galder's purchasing power extremely low compared to Myshop.
Even though it does take hours to earn x amount of galder, everyone
is doing it, contributing to the overall amount of galder in the system. Lowering purchasing power, blah blah.
Even though there are people who have jobs and take hours to earn y amount of money, not all y funds go into the game, and not all people even spend on the game at all. Real money is by far, rarer than galder. Will always be.
Using a "I spent x amount of hours for y amount of galder, therefore my x amount of hours should earn your z amount of $" ideology is logically unsound because it does not factor in the ever-shifting rarity of real life money in the game compared to galder in the game. It is fundamentally ignoring supply & demand. Er.. What I'm trying to say is that "time" isn't exactly the right factor to look at.

For 100$ buying super gatcha coins you can get around 166 coins.
Drilling in special town using flicker drill its 55 drills.
So you get:
4G5 thats worth 600m
And other 54 items including pet that are worth 0m ?
It's still illogical to use a galder v. dollar comparison. Sure, maybe it takes $100 to get a 4G5, but there are only so many people that can spend that much to even get it. A lot of the Myshop community is just hit and run kiddies who get money of their parents every so often. Or aren't dumb enough to keep churning out money for a single gacha which they've gotten almost everything of except maybe a pet-- risking getting a sh~t ton of more duplicates.
And a lot of those items consist of furniture. lul
Plus to sell fuses, you would also need to keep burning money to buy flames. Of course, it's not a direct exchange (x myshop for a 4G5), but the scarcity of anybody obtaining a 4G5 justifies a higher price.
And it's really funny how most people (people who use galder//buyers) have a solely buyer mentality. If sellers sell what they think is high, therefore the sellers are being greedy. What buyers ignore is the presence of OTHER buyers, and, of course, the basics of economics. There IS no "original price", there is no "set price" (or what you call TRUE price), there is NOTHING of that sort. This is not a controlled market. The seller is only putting THEIR item at the price THEY want. They are not forcing YOU to buy it-- even if you "need" it. Think about it. You just want the item for cheaper. Who's greedy now?
(And it seems like everybody has already stated these points, so please do ignore me. LOL)
