    Holy smokes! I have 460 shards. Period. I can see members of large guilds ponying up maybe 50-100 apiece for an upgrade, but my guild has 6 members among 3 families. Guess we're keeping our typhoon-class boat. Oops - that's wrong: it's a Tempest... :/

    Just a note that as of the release of Update 22, Astral Shard airships do not need to be upgraded; simply purchase the Astral Shard airship of your choice.

    This is really low. Should be 4M, 8M, 16M.

    [edit: deleted comment... I may have misunderstood your query and can't verify the prices of upgrades vs. straight-up purchases, so I'll yield.]

    You can farm AS by doing quests. They come in the form of diamonds.

    But what if you have a Tempest and just want the Typhoon? Does that only cost 1000 AS or am I forced to pay the entire 2650? In other words, can I simply upgrade?

    Thanks Cordovan, that makes a huge difference to my initial shock.

    Still not clear on exactly how this will work for those of us with longer term upgrade plans, perhaps someone can clarify ...

    If I can only afford a Glaive for 3300 today, but ultimately want a Kraken (once I have saved up for it) does that mean I need to spend 3300+5650=8950 in total?

    How about those of us who already invested? Seems unfair to lose the 1650 AS we already invested to get our Tempest and not be able to upgrade them. Buying anythihng else with AS rather than the top ship is destroying investment even more. That can't be right.

    Also how can we get back our deposit, i deposited 1000 AS expecting to be able to upgrade. Now i want my AS back from that deposit since it is a waste of hard earned effort and money.

    Is that new for U22? For I haven't see a single diamond drop since about the first week after Shards were introduced... and I saw exactly one then. My son has likewise seen only one. Not exactly farmable rates of drop, that.

    MEANWHILE, I have another question. My guild CAN buy a Gryphon at this point. But if at some point in the future we become eligible for a Typhoon ship, can we upgrade for the upgrade price (seems to be 1,000 shards, if I believe the wiki - though that states 'Upgrades from Stormglory Tempest') OR is it the full 2,650?

    You say this like its supposed to be some sort of Benefit?

    In the past, we were compensated for the previous ships we purchased. Upgrading was significantly less than buying new.

    Its a lot easier for guilds to upgrade a little bit at a time. Lots of guilds want to upgrade to the best ship someday. They simply cannot afford to do it all at once... Small guilds get clobbered with this "feature"

    I just hope more people dont buy the spin and realize what a huge problem this is.

    This!! Good question! I think we all understand that you don't have to upgrade.

    BUT, do you have to pay the full price for each ship or is the upgrade path still available as well?

    Thanks,

    Are you saying that we can buy the Kraken straight off? No need to buy any other ships? And you don't offer a trade in for your previous ship to get it?

    And this benefits a guild how exactly?
