Nope. It says 25% off in both screenshots.

Notice the use of the “+” symbol in the first screenshot. This implies that some stuff has a higher cost. They don’t hide any charges at the checkout. (As shown by Screenshot #2.) The 995/747 cost reflects the 4 tiers of 10 more slots you can buy.

Also, Turbine is actually advertising the least glamorous pricing and giving you the better deal initially. The investment into the shared bank is a better deal than the upgrades. 1121 TP for 20 slots (That’s ~56 TP per slot) vs. 747Tp for 10 slots (~74 TP per slot)

screenshot for shared bank's slots are just that.... If you already have a shared bank for that server... then addition 20 slots is 747points atm

bottom screenshot is if you only have your character bank and NO shared bank... then you can buy SHARED bank for 1121 points... then you can add slots for the 747...

How many times are you going to be wrong? You can add 10, not 20, slots for the 747... Hence:

Way to not pay attention. Next time you see me in game remind me to give you 25pp so you can afford to pay attention next time.

Your complaint is they are false advertising by giving you exactly what they advertise? or that they falsely claimed you could read?

Lol, Memnir. Alas! I cannot give you more rep just yet. At least something in this thread gave me a laugh. I just have to ask, *** is it supposed to be?

I fell for this too. But as soon as I saw the real price, I realized what the real situation was. Turbine should have their store sale items as links, for more info. So if they have the shared bank on sale again, the name should be a link, and the link should be short with something like this:

Shared Banks

1121 TP

Additional Shared Bank Spaces (10 additional Slots for an existing Shared Bank)
747 TP
