Cost of items in special currency shops - 10 times cheaper

Tue Jan 10, 2017 10:42 am

Dear community,

There is number of special currencies and relevant shops:
Two arenas shops, guild shop, crucible wagon, tree and arsenal.
In all of them (except tree) there are items sold on second page.
Now question: does anyone buy these items for outrageous prices there? (Except arcenal as there are no soulstones but much more special coins)

Even if I use in game economic:
5 soulstones = 500 special coins = 20000 gold sell equivalent (or 100'000 gold buy equivalent) = 200 diamonds (5$) = 400 (2000) gold per one coin
Now compare:
Warrior gloves (lvl23 item) = 513 special coins = 746 gold sell (or about 3500 gold buy) = ~1.5 (7.5) gold per coin. If I buy 200 diamonds and use midas it will give me somewhat equivalent of 0.1$ for these gloves.
Other items will have similar cost comparison.
7000+ coins for one purple item? Equivalent of 70$ = ~7000 diamonds = 7 of same purple items in black market. Must be kidding.
It's ignoring fact that all items can be obtained via other game means, while some soulstones ONLY is these shops.

What all this long calc about? Items in special shop should be at least 10 times cheaper even to start thinking of buying them.
10 times cheaper.

Maybe somebody from older players can share different opinion.

Buying O1/O2 from these shops is actually amazing when you don't need any more soulstons, and this *will* happen sooner or later. There are people with tens of thousands of these coins in some shops. Even I have all heroes from Epic Arena at 7* except from Baltor, and I have started playing less than a year ago.

Yeah, that was one of my guesses.
Personally I am not sure what would encourage me to keep playing after I have all heroes 7*. Even at level 81 on my young server I am starting to get bored as It seem I compete only with maybe 15 guys.
Ok then suggestion can be to make some better scaling.

For growing players (who still need SS) it is more interesting to have viable choice between focusing few heroes or slowly raising more heroes in parallel.
If items were cheaper I would buy them to raise fewer heroes quicker. But I cannot imagine to buy one purple item at cost of 70 ss. two such items = one hero 4* -> 5*. Its unfair exchange.

The prices will not drop. Maybe the solution is that there are only SS until one heroe from that shop reaches 7 stars, starting from that point items should appear. At least that way we could have more variety before being high levels. I still don't have 7*d anyone... just focusing on 6* everyone atm. Too many heroes, bad coin gaining per day (even being top 3 always), and well, spending these precious coins in reseting because the SS drop rate is shitty.
I would prefer they increase the coins we get per hour than eliminating the items.
