There is a growing amount of zuly on the server, and its making it more difficult for newer players to get things--and the problem is there's such a big difference between a lot and a little. It makes the market place so unstable that prices can change drastically overnight. Its a problem for both players and the company. IE. More zuly=less people buying im to get what they need.
Elite NPC Shop Suggestion:
1. I'd like to suggest what some other games do--they have a shop that usually has very high priced items that are not meant for any new player to be able to afford--and rather for players that have played for years and years. It gives the game another 'free to play' aspect as players wouldn't 'have' to buy im to get anything from this shop--Although, the economy is item mall driven, so it would likely increase im sales. And I'm talking items that are 1b+
Shop ideas: I personally would like to see a shop that has multiple tabs. Maybe one tab is expensive costumes that are ONLY available through this shop and this shop alone. You could do anything from hats to full costume pieces. Some ideas could be a rainbow assortment of the big seraph wings--10b a pop. Think inflated prices. Maybe dual colored wings could be 15b or more..since they are paying for extra colors.
I would suggest pvm oriented gears for something like this and maybe include some bonus pvm stuff, but avoid the PVP oriented stuff unless the gain is very minimal(only because that would put a further between the cap of young and old players for pvp--whereas pvm gear is just bonus stuff). You could also include elite one-time-use items. I know there used to be things like stealth scrolls in game. Think of something creative. Edit: New CG Schematics(5-10b)--(Mostly suggested by Jagz <3)
Reasons this would be a good idea:
-Drain zuly from the economy, making the economy less strained
-It provides players a goal in a game. IE the shop has a costume they like--they may want to save up all their zuly to get it. A reason to farm and vend things farmed--buy im and sell it in game...
