Game too expensive ?

Is it me or does the GOLD (AP) not seem to go as far as it used to?
I understand that there is a lot involved in projects like this, and that its not a charity!
But with gold having to be spent every where, from salary bonus to heal troops, from divination to forging. (even the spin of a wheel!)
I find you are needing to spend $$$ and then spend some more.
Maybe if Aeria would either lower the amount to be spent or give more AP to the $ or both, they may find more people willing to part with their spare cash.

The prices of all most all items in the Golden Age Item Mall have been reduced in price since the game's initial launch. All the gold costs you pointed out, while potentially expensive, are not a necessary function of gameplay and are completely optional for players to utilize. If you dont' want to spend Aeria Points on the gold for these features, you don't need to.

While we can not adjust the $ to AP ratio (as this would cause dramatic adjustment in all games here at Aeria), feel free to provide feedback and suggest changes to the AP to Gold ratio, which is currently 1:1.

its true they have made MASSIVE price decreases since launch (sadly I used my AP @ launch) Razz

Admittedly even though I don't play the game very much anymore I still do find the prices on some items, especially those you can obtain in game fairly easy, to be far to high. I would rather have lower gold prices on regular items and higher gold prices on seasonal items. The fact that they are seasonal (limited) should justify any price increases.

I haven't spent any gold in this game and i"m enjoying it very much. You don't have have to spend money in order to enjoy the game.

As a new player, I just want this cleared before even considering spending anything:)

By 1:1, you seriously mean that 1000$ = 1000 AP? (If that is the case, the number of people spending $ must be extremely low)

AP to Gold ratio, which is currently 1:1.

1 Dollar (USD) is 100 Aeria Points
One Aeria Point is one Gold in Golden Age.

1˘ = 1AP.

Penny for your gold.

This is 100 pennies. Giving them to aeriagames results in you getting 100 game gold.

Though I think they prefer electronic versions instead of physical...
