Hello, I’m coming from Tree of Savior to Lost Ark.
I’m already a converted costumer used to pay for a subscription (Tokens in Tree of Savior).
I’m looking to by Crystalline Aura in Lost Ark, but the prices a the moment are out of this world.
I can understand if these prices were set in response to the recent exploitation shenanigans, but at the same time it’s pretty lame to not be able to prog a raid because my equipments broke and I can’t repair them with my Pet if I don’t have crystaline aura.
I think I speak for most players in SA when I say prices are very unrealistic right now.
For context, as of today a 1 real is worth 5.12 dollars.
In tree of savior a Token just last month cost me R$30 (roughly 6 bucks) which is already a bit pricy for me, but given the current local economy it’s sort of understandable.
Last year the same token used to cost R$15 which is a extremely accessible price for almost any player.
Currently, a Crystaline Aura in Lost Ark bought with real cash is around R$57.
Finally, even if I was going to try to play without paying.
Blue crystals as of today cost 650 gold for 95 crystals.
Which would require 3.250 gold to buy 475 crystals. (5 times 95)
If anything, the high price of blue crystals seem to suggest to me that players are buying very little orange crystals or at least not converting much to blue crystals.
In my opinion whoever is setting the prices for this region is loosing the company a lot of money and making a comfortable game experience inaccessible for a lot of players.
When can I expect a solution to this problem?
