I MI S S ED THISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS post
i will strike when you least expect it
I second this post.
Gonna point something out since I see a lot of complaints about FFXIV’s incoming “cash shop”.
To help people understand this versus a F2P cash shop, here we go:
FFXIV will have a cash shop that will allow newer players to purchase older seasonal gear for a very small amount of money. (~$1) These are statless gears good only for glamouring.
The cash shop will sell a mount (Yoshi said it was going to be inexpensive) and a minion (same).
The main difference is F2P games make all their money in their Cash Shops. So their costume sets are anywhere up to 50 dollars (I’m lookin at you FlyFF - 45 bucks for a cape?)
In Dragon Nest, you pay 30 dollars for 30 chances at a mount. In FFXIV you’ll pay probably $10 for a mount maybe a little more or less.
THIS JUST IN: The mounts obtained in game will be rarer and more desirable. Minions will be the same. The mounts in the shop are there to basically say “thank you for playing, here is an easy mount.” Same for new players who have just subscribed and have no mount besides chocobo at lvl 20.
Think of how much more content FFXIV has that any F2P game. Every patch increases things to do. The dev team won’t depend on that small cash shop (that WoW also uses) like a F2P game will. Hence there won’t be nickle and diming.
It will purely be on a base of “do I want this or not?” Coming from a F2P game, it’s easy to see that the content you are given in FFXIV is well worth the 12 dollars a month. And 1 or 2 or 3 dollars for a pumpkin hat is nothing in comparison to the 30 dollars per every Dragon Nest costume set (seasonal) or dragon eggs…
i don’t know where everyone is getting this info from cuz i’m busy right now but is it really going to happen? anyone know?
permafall answered: yep it’s true, opens on the 28th :| they’re gonna sell minions and sleipnir mount
fak. srs? in p2p? i’ve been waiting for 2.4 but i guess i’m not returning.
TIERE NO DONT LEAVE IM COMING BACK Q A Q
Ah, I love how everyone is taking this so seriously. The “cash shop” is nothing but minor vanity items that offer no bonus to getting them except well… getting them.
Each item, costume piece, were like $1 a piece.
