Allods Online just posted a number of updated prices for their item shop following the huge controversy surrounding it these past weeks:
List of changes in the item shop:
Vial of Perfume reduced from 75gP to 25gP
Large Perfume Kit reduced from 1350gP to 300gP
Holy Rune reduced from 1500gP to 1000gP
Rough Dragon Hide Backpack reduced from 2000gP to 600gP
Small Deposit Box reduced from 1500gP to 1000gP
Small Bag of Crystal Chips reduced from 250gP to 100gP
Medium Bag of Crystal Chips reduced from 1200gP to 350gP
Potions reduced from 250gP to 200gP
A “gP” is a gPotato, the equivalent of US $0.01, so you can figure out the conversion rather easily. The perfume is now just a quarter, the ballyhooed backpack down from $20 to $6 ($1 per extra slot), and so on.
The question is, is this enough? Will players be satisfied by the action taken here, will the prices be seen as more reasonable, or do they need to go further?
As for me, I’m a bit restless this afternoon, so I might give Allods a spin — something I haven’t done since beta. But I’m a cheap, cheap guy sometimes, so I don’t think they’re going to be seeing a single cent from me, Fear of Death debuff or no.
