Monthly Promotions

OcarisOcaris Member Posts: 29
I'm curious to see the prize lists, but as it stands this promotion seems a wee bit on the extravagant side.

The price on the arrows seems very high (again, waiting for the prize lists to make any concrete judgement) and I would be curious to see the numbers on how many days the "high score" was more than 2-3 arrows (I know that's improbable, but it would say something about game health).

I liked the idea behind the giftbags, as it was something that was purchase oriented while still having a bone to throw for game participation.

What I'm wondering is if there are any plans to orient the monthly promotions into re-populating existing promotional items into the game? As it stands, some of the items that provide tangible (if small) non-cosmetic benefits are very rare, if they're even on the market at all. I understand availability is a tricky thing to balance, but there are SO MANY items floating around in our "promotional item pool" right now that hopefully something can be done - even if it's just re-attaching them to purchases and not making them earnable through game participation.

Also, and this is just personal wishlist - bring back token rolls for a month. It is murder trying to get a decent supply of tokens and I am full on Vegeta about my token house right now.

    Re: Prize list for Love Arrows

    Yay:
    Multi-facet gems, ancestral chips/stones, hex cards, and earrings!
    We all got a free arrow!

    Boo:
    We have no way of knowing what prizes are associated with what tiers (aside from a very very good chance for something big in a gold tier)
    Putting the giftbag artifacts in for two months straight is mean - I don't need another glass cutting tool.
    We got Veil back in the game!

    Thank you for this!  I was suspicious of the potential value of arrows compared to just buying the credits at 30% (plus or minus 10%) so this is a good way to eyeball potential value and takes a little bit less lootbox out of the whole thing.

    Can we just please bring back the Ancestral Stone vendor guy? Just for one month?

    Edit : Also make it so people can't buy all the stones, then sell them for a huge profit on promo market? Not sure how the vendor works, but if they're not already, make stones bound to the buyer.

    Why would you want them to be bound to the buyer? Then the only people who could ever have the ancestral stones are the ones who were around the month that they were for sale.

    Because then you don't get certain people going and buying all the stones (if there's a limit on how many the dude sells) and reselling them for 10x what they paid, and the people that actually want a particular stone can get one.

    I feel like that should be a promotional thing. Have us login for x amount of days, and after x amount of days we get to essentially "select" one that is bound to the character. Doing it the way you suggested @Altheia looks like a good idea, but honestly having it bound to character and be able to buy them all seems like something that would get really annoying really fast. I mean, some people sell them to make a profit and to help others get them later (I know a few people who have actually given others ancestral stones to give them a specific race because they wanted it without actually charging them anything) while others just want to sell them for profit. The idea isn't bad, don't get me wrong. However, making them bound to character just from buying them from a vendor seems a bit much to me.

    Eh, maybe. I just get annoyed by the people that continually (not so much Imperian, it's rampant in Achaea) buy out a special item (see the bazaar in Achaea), just so they can then sell it for triple what they paid.

    Yep, I understand people wanna make money/credits/peanuts but there's no need to be super greedy about it. I'm not paying 700+ credits, for an item someone paid 100 for.

    When they are available for sale, ancestral stones are not handled via normal shops, and there is no scarcity.
    Like what we're doing? Why not take a second to vote? Vote for Imperian at http://www.imperian.com/vote

    This is good then. Thanks! I've not yet seen the stone guy selling, so I wasn't sure how it worked.

    @Altheia I figured as much, I was just adding my input since I thought I could at least offer something to this conversation.

    Appreciate that. I'd also be happy with it being a promo login thing.

    I just want my Selkie stone  :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(
