As soon as i saw the discount % in news post i was curious what the "full" price of each orb would be, so i calculated and found out that:

11* orb without discount is 188,88 gold
12* orb without discount is 160 gold

This makes too much sense to me, any thoughts?b:chuckle

    Current sale in boutique:

    Dragon Orb Ocean (+10): 25 gold
    Dragon Orb Mirage (+11): 85 gold
    Dragon Orb Flame (+12): 150 gold
    (there is no Dragon's Fire Pack sale atm, we had that one last week, iirr)

    1 gold ~ 1$/€ (there is a little bonus, if you charge more)

    If you have already +7 gear/weapon, and you want maximize your equipment to full +12 with orbs, you need

    33 x 25 gold + 11 x 85 gold + 11 x 150 gold = 825 + 935 + 1650 = 3.410 gold
    ==> more than 3000 €.


    And that's why thousands of people quitted after the ocean orb disaster:
    hundreds of people obtained full +11/12 for free and others got nothing. And DefenderOfDreams just told us "Regarding the level of abuse, from the data in front of us, it was not quite as widespread as many believe."
    I'm still laughing. Sadly.b:surrender

    The 11* didn't used to be in the boutique at all, you had to craft it if you wanted one. Which means you had to craft the 9* needed to make one. 8 and 9*s have almost always been more expensive to craft, than buying an on-sale 10*.

    i'm pretty sure it's a typo and the discount on +12 is 62.5%, not 6.25%
