Whale, whale, whale, what now?

A 'different' kind of thread.
Being a dedicated whale for the last 8 years, I now have nothing useful to buy with my zen - or AD.
All 8 characters that I play (out of 20 total) have 100% bolster in both mounts and companions.
Every mount in the zen store shows "Free" as the price.
There are only two companions that are not marked "Free" for me in the zen store, one is a blue that all my guys have in purple and the other is a green healer that I may grab just for completion but I really have no use for.
Okay, so only two or three of my eight have all mythic insignia but the others I only use for some HE's in my personal guilds stronghold and upgrading insignias from orange to teal just for that is not needed.
I am hereby requesting that you add more (at least somewhat useful or 'pretty') mounts and / or companions to the zen store.
Please?
Oh, yes, all characters have *all* mythic enchants, even the ones they don't use/need (eg. more than one combat type).
DON'T
PANIC!

    Thank you for supporting the game. You could always buy some AD with that zen, and help put a dent in that backlog, then use that AD to either pad your in-game savings account, or buy stuff from the Auction House. Ofc you can always start working on that missing class that isn't up to the rest.

    Agree completely.

    Do I buy stuff to support the game? Not really any more as the game I started playing has changed sooo much in recent years.

    BUT here's my suggestion - put all the BiS stuff into the Zen store so that anyone who wants to buy it [Ribcage, Band of Air etc] can do so. THAT one thing would put a load of money into the game. Simples.

    And reduce the Zen price of stuff by 50% and NW would more than double its revenue, currently stuff I might buy is just a bit too expensive for my liking.

    Add stuff to the Zen store, loads of stuff, please please please!

    I came back to see the new and improved Neverwinter. I must agree, I stopped spending my money here too. I can only assume they get the gullible new player's milk money now and then? I play a lot more on consoles these days, returned my PC to more office equipment and less gaming. I was thinking about the fun we had before all the developers nuked the game. I reinstalled, played a bit, fun not found, and uninstalled again. I came here to find even the forums are dead. Gearbox needs to give this game CPR or a decent funeral.

    CPR that's funny, the game is just running on life support mostly at this point. The repetitive and dumbed down events are proof of this. (look at day of dungeon master rework for example)

    I used to spend money on this game but when m16 decimated the foundry and character builds I stopped. rather than totaly reworking the system the should have simply balanced it. I've never seen a game go through as many radical design changes as this one.

    Couldnt agree more with this bit "I've never seen a game go through as many radical design changes as this one."

    And back to the original post - yeah there just isnt much around to buy.

    Also the rewards for events are lacklustre for anyone who has been here for a few years.

    For most of us, it is about nothing in Zen store worth to buy.
    For OP, it is about there is nothing new for him to buy.

    I don't understand why they don't release regular fashion updates. Gives people something new and shiny, doesn't add to Power creep. The mind boggles . . . . .
