We got an arrogant somebody selling +10 Abusive Dex5 7B while giving a warning that low baller will be ignore (in red letter too lol).

 

It's simple... Get +0 Abusive enchant them by yourself and make it Dex5 then refine it to +10 and ignore the seller...

 

 

 

 

I'm gonna just say it again that before WPE code was 100-130m. Now as game is too much F2P and most P2W players probably either quit the game or simply dont want to spend as much as they used to, WPE code is now 300m+ and it will only keep going up. I dont think WP accept zeny as a payment for WPE codes.

Unfortunately, WP has made many fatal management mistakes.

 

You already have your insight... Who do you think control the game??? Why do you think the prices go up suddenly? It's simple.. About a year ago i sold GTB 25B and some stuffs at cheap prices but when I saw WPE going up so sudden.. I waited for weeks to see if it'll go down but it didn't... So I was forced to adjust my prices.. I think it is the same way why others make it a little bit overpriced because of WPE.. The sudden price surge is about WPE..

I guess the common advice given to newcomers is really effective: which is to buy low; sell high. That's another factor too. The snowball is getting bigger and affecting the server in a bigger scale. If you watch closely enough you can observe that to be true in class S gears. Same people buying and selling the exact same items. 2B became 2.2B, then 2.5 and so on. Resellers are going over the top.

No, the problem is that most of this ocp items are not available In Game! So as time goes by, you need to either re-introduce the items so that people can spend wpe, items availability goes up, and prices technically should go down.

The problem is that the ocp items are re-introduce many many months after initial re-introduction if that.

Back in 2014, hbp and flaws were re-introduce every 3 months or so, with decent drop rates Hence the price was doable, now those items were re-introduce recently at 500kp each box with abysmal drop rates, so what does people do? Naturally Jack up the price.

So to fix this, you have to have a fixed reintroduction of items, so that the flow stays constant, people who don't have the items can spend wpe and the availability will go up, hence prices will go down. This should be done in, intervals of about 3 months or so, with perhaps new ocp plus old ocp in the same month. That way people can get old ocp items.

There is more to it but this is the main issue with inflation, ocp items, etc.

If it was apocalypse, and 100 people have 10 cases of water, they will make darn sure they sell if or trade for a lot!

In the case of abusive robes, make the tokens act bound instead of char bound and that should help with the high prices.

Also, 300 kp for 1 ocp with abysmal rates is not good. If you want, keep the rate the same and then drop the kp per ocp to like 100kp.

It is no fun to spend real money on a ocp box, and to never actually get the item you are looking for.

Sorry for the double post
