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.
