Ok, so I've played on both official EU and RU servers (EU Antriksha and RU Gardarika).
I will be comparing EU to RU because both are official Aion servers. And I truely believe that EU servers is North Korea of aion. We're told lies and most of us believe that we're having the best aion expierence ever. But playing aion RU is like escaping NK and moving to USA for example.
Comparing their and our brokers+shop makes me wonna gauge my eyes out.
Shop first then broker. And then some miscellaneous stuff at the end.
Prices - Ok we all have to admit that both aions are P2W BUT, RU shop is WAAAY cheaper and more accessable. For example APES. On aion RU you can buy them for LESS THAN 1 FREAKING EURO EACH. Using current RUB-EUR ratio its about 80 cents for 1 APE. (As of now serums are not in the RU shop). And what do we have on EU? 1 serum 5-10 euros each depending from what region you buy coins. Holy shit gameforge, I would forgive you every garbage event and every screw up you did in the past if you make serums and apes 10 aion coins each with current AC prices. I mean more people would start spending their money into shop to buy serums and APES because became cheaper.
And this applies to other usefull stuff like EXP amulets, tea and Golden Stars, there they are 40-50 to a euro (500% EXP Amulets) each. Here 4 euros for a freaking 100% EXP amulet.
Same story with mounts, they're way overpriced for what they are.
Aion shop must be revisited and prices must be lowered because at the moment they're disastreous.
Lets move to uninhabited desert. Thats what resembles Antri Elyos broker.
Its damn empty. Like complitely empty.
Lets start from the top, the weapons and armor. We don't have any decent weapons/armor on broker, not any. There are few overpriced af +0 demise weapons but thats about it. No AP no extendables.
On Gardarika Elyos broker there is atleast 1-2 +15 demise/apollon's or even bygone weapons. And prices are amazing. +15 Apollon's weapons are 1.5-3kkk depending on what manastones they have. +15 bygone weapons (Poles, GS, Staffs) are 5-7kkk each, +0 3-4kkk each. Good fucking luck finding someone selling +15 Bygone Pole for 5kkk on EU. And thats because people don't have stones nor supplements to make +10/15 weapons. Also Garden drops are shit on EU. On RU garden each boss drops 2-3 armor and weapons. And 4-5 starlight fragments for each pt member. This leads to greater amount of apollon's gear and overall cheaper prices for that same gear and materials to craft it.
Lets skip useless broker stuff and get to juicy parts. --> Manastones, oooo manastones. Manastone prices make people shiver whenever we think about them. We never got any decent event to give us a great amount of manastones. While I was on RU, we had event (Kumuki event, yes have events about 1 month after RU servers play them, so gameforge can nerf them to shit.) And, we only 2 chars, I was able to farm over 40 manastone bags with chooseable stones. And those bags were +7,+8,+9 manastones. And people who had 5 6 7 characters farmed over a 100 +7/8/9 manastone bags. Prices for +7 Acc, power and knowledge were 15kk each. And broker was filled with them, and everyone would socket his weapon with atleast +7 manastone.
And what do we have on Antri Elyos broker, 6-10 of low manastones(+4 - +6) with +7 stones ranging from 70 to a 100kk each and super limited quantity (2-3 of each level max). So explain me dear gameforge, how are we supposted to socket our gear with +7 or higher stones, if there are only 3-5 of them and they're overpriced af???
Now miscellaneous things.
Luna craft....is garbage. There is nothing usefull to craft in it. Why can't you add pets and mount and nice skin into luna craft? Aion RU has pets like Golden Saam, Satan Junior and mounts like hell steed and pagati aero. It doesn't affect anything balance wise if people can craft themselves a nice mount or a usefull pet in it. Instead it makes people happy when they craft those small, but really usefull pets and mounts. We're not asking to give let us craft +15 75ap gear or anything.
Second, Level reduction stones. Gameforge, pls, just PLEASE, give us level reduction stones. We don't have enough, we need more. Here's great idea - put them into luna craft! You don't have them in the shop, we don't have them ingame beside that 1 stone we get per character. Putting them into luna craft will make everyone happy.
Mighty supplements, GIVE US BACK OUR SUPPLEMENTS! Why did you have to remove supplements from Akaron central base? And before someone says that it is for every region, on aion.ru akaron central base you can buy 70 supplements for 50 BMs. That way more people can attempt to enchant gear which will lead to more +10-15 gear on the broker.
Thats about it for now. There are alot more small things, but I've mentioned main things that hold the economy together.
I hope gameforge will read this and do something usefull already. They came up with this Obam....excuse me,Daeva Care, and alot of points from above can be implemented in this system in the future.
But I agree about lvl reduction stones. They are more accessible (50 RUB ea, which is about 0.80 euros ea), cuz u might need x20 or something to fully reduce 1 item.
