Created a ticket last night to get a GM to address my enhancement reset cost or at least give me some info.
When I asked what my enhancement reset cost SHOULD be he said, "I have no idea."
When I asked how long I'll have to wait before my cost gets back down to normal (i.e. what the decay rate is) he said, "The word around here is 3 days, but I really don't know."
He then asked if there was anything else he could help me with and before I could finish typing my response he closed the ticket. I hope the guys acting as GMs are paid to do something else and GM responsibilities are just an afterthought, because otherwise that is a complete waste of money. I've had good luck with support in the past but this was just awful.
If anyone has some concrete data on what the costs and times surrounding enhancement resets are SUPPOSED to be, that would be very helpful information. Needless to say I'm out another 200k plat. Definitely can't keep that up for long.
I'm sorry, did I say "brilliant"? I meant "useless, ill-considered suggestion".
Enhancement reset should cost a total of Number of Points Reset * 5 GOLD pieces. Every reset in a 7-day period increases the cost by 10%. Going 7 days without reset kicks the price back down to base.
I deleted most of my low level drow characters, and got a point refund for purchasing it on my alt account because my altaholism was kicking in, and I wanted to try my idea right now. Why? Because in order for the build to play out the way I wanted it to, I was going to have to reset my enhancements every time I logged in to play it. So I'm all for fixing the enhancement trees to work properly, and don't really care if a game mechanic that's been in place for as long as I remember stays WAI. You want to reset your enhancements before every quest, that's cool with me, just fork over the plat to do so.
It's called a "plat-sink".
Welcome to MMO's.
Normally, I would agree that the fees are expensive... but I don't believe they are anymore for the following reasons.
A) Every cost requirement storywise is in gold not plat. So if you need to bribe the assassin for Return to Delera's or buy another bank slot or whatever it is you are spending cash on, it uses gold wheareas the economy runs on plat. This is like dollars existing but everyone in the world buys and sells in cents.
B) You can log on roll a dice and get 1000 plat for doing absolutely nothing. Ridiculous, I'd say. But its the world we live in.
These two things alone make copper and silver a completely outdated concept by sheer means of the engine itself... just the left over remnants of a time when you had to quest or trade or at bare minimal provide some useful service to someone to be paid or rewarded.
Some things are so far out of proportion that the outcome is laughable. My weight bar says I can carry 8 tons on my person. 8500+ pounds.
...But, I digress.
I don't think the costs are too high. I think it seems high because its in plat when 99% of things using plat currently should be in gold. Plat is traditionally reserved for buying castles and estates, not everyday purchases. There is your real problem. In a balanced world rolling your daily dice and getting 1pp should result in a jaw drop like "Whoa... thats a lot of cash!" The system is out of whack and has been for too long.
End the Fed.
