    Its strange really. Converted to gold, that is just a tiny bit above the market price of those orbs. Therefore, many people will choose to not buy them from the CS.

    If you'd priced them at say 50g and 100g, you wouldnt be able to handle the orders.

    Seeing that we are talking about some bits and bytes here that dont cost you anything, i really dont understand such a marketing decision.

    ut-oh i didnt realize the sale was this great *breaks out credit card* xD

    ^ Sarcasm... I haven't ever broke out the cc for this game, and tbh this sale doesn't even come close to tempting me to do that.

    Im a R8 +5 last I checked. Its not a troll. I have no reason to be ashamed of it either. Why would I bother with a higher refine when Im not R9rr yet?

    They didnt wait for me to get my R8 above +5 mostly before they released R9, so thats where Im at. I have a few select higher gears, but Im still on the quest to catch up!

    No troll, sir - and thanks for being kind enough to answer my question. b:thanks

    You flatter me, sir. *ghost blushes*

    Ive been playing since right before R8 became the 'hate on' gear in the game, so I know some stuff, but most of it I dont know on my own. Other mystics, like Marista, Baby Pho, Alexis, Burnout, Bella, CpnK, and yourself, and tons others who share their knowledge from their own type of Mystics perspective that have provded me with what I know.

    The only thing I can really think of that I found out for myself was noticing Healing Herb acting as a target plant in FC. xD

    Tyvm. b:thanks *ghost sneaks out the back door* b:bye

    Converted to coins, +11 is selling for 179m, and +12 is 315m. It's a small discount tbh....but not much of a black friday sale.

    I'd expect something like this in say, april or something. Lets say, the 1st. But not Black Friday.

    Honestly though? I think with the ocean orb fiasco, selling cheap +11/12's would have made people rage even more.

    I really hope DoD wasn't talking about the "surprises" being this kind of stuff.

    I called this the moment the orbs glitched. If PWI was not going to do a server rollback, they would instead to try to profit off their mistake.

    You guys are all using too much sarcasm,
    I don't think PWE realises yet that the price for the 11 and 12 star orbs is exactly the same as ingame anyways.

    So yeah the sale doesn't make sense to me, especially after the Ocean Orb thing.
    Nothing changed with this sale :)

    I think the validity of this sale depends on the server.

    The Mirage orb, at 85 gold, is the exact same price as a Mirage orb would cost to make if you paid 105,000 per 1* (assuming you spent 25 gold for the ocean needed to craft it). Since there are no DF Packs on sale atm, 1* orbs are 140k each right now. So for impatient people, this is actually a decent deal. Especially considering the current cost of Oceans, and other orbs.

    As for Flame Orbs. I think you guys need to realize that this sale isn't about giving a discount. It's about providing access to two Orbs that are normally very hard to obtain. To get a flame, you either have to make it, which almost nobody does, or win it from a DF Pack.

    Both of these are decent sales, when you take into consideration what their purpose is. Some sales are meant to provide discounts. Some are meant to provide access. This is one of the latter. At least as it applies to Dreamweaver server. And it's still a decent price.

    Asking for +11 orbs to be 50 gold each is ridiculous. That would break the Orb market. Don't be hypocrites. Half the player base ******* when PWI broke the nirvy market with NW, and now you're asking them to do something that would completely destroy the Orb market.

    How dare you take my only purpose in life to utter the phrase...

    The +11 and +12 orbs will soon be removed due to




    client instability


    Thank you and you may now return to Days of our PWI Lives, already in progress...


    When we last left PWE, they had just made a **** ton of +10 orbs available to the population. Dr Doofensmirtz, the evil PWE manager was telling his minons about his evil plan to release a bunch of +10's then push the playerbase to purchase +11 and +12 orbs at a highly profitable cost. He knows as soon as the players figure out what he has done, he will have to remove them quick claiming client instability.

    Tune in next year when the same PWE manager plays the same PWE game.
