    You could argue that "It doesn't specifically say it's only through the Rift Store," but when I read it, that's how I understood it, and I don't know how anyone else would understand it as anything but that. =/
    They were talking about swimsuits before that page was put up, and that is when they were vague about it.

    Think about that a bit.

    I believe that this is convincing evidence that there is a lot less cash grab here than people seem to be assuming. There is no reason for a company focused primarily on selling things for credits to have desireable items in the shop which cannot be bought for credits. And we're not talking about the P2W issue; it's not just raid gear or whatever. Stuff like the low-level Summerfest gear. Some of the things you can buy for lucky coins (like the Bogling Surprise hat) or for plat (like the costume versions of starter gear).

    And that, I think, tells us a lot about the intent and design of the shop.
    I don't think it's a cash grab. Just a misleading representation of a world event, whether intended or not.

    I wouldn't even be posting in this thread in this way, if they just had a proper Summerfest lead-in and article, and a separate but related article for the swimsuits. In fact, that probably would have worked better on an advert front, because they could have it in big capitals on the front page of the website.

    More "We're starting to sell swimsuits when Summerfest starts!" less "Summerfest is here, and with it, you requested it!, swimsuits!". Is that picky? No, imo, not in a genre where this stuff can get worse and worse for annual events over time.

    That's all. I'm not even upset.

    So, anyone found a companion yet?

    To find one, just need to run around the zones in Mathosia?

    Default Weapon appropriate with beachwear?

    Anyone know if we can hide weapons, or if we have to unequip them? I couldn't find anything in my cursory wiki/google search last night.

    Summerfest wardrobe/pet/stuff items didn't have a $ price tag until yesterday. I imagine they all will soon.

    Maybe morph it into something little like a dagger.

    They did this with Defiance as well, increasing the costs of most items between 400-500%, and then tried to tell everyone the prices were 'comptetitive'.

    Apparently, even after assurances from the Rift team that they wouldn't pull similar BS moves, they've fallen in with the Greed Collective™.

    All the screenshots from my initial post were taken from the PTS before Summerfest went Live.

    Prices are exactly the same, 994 credits for the swimsuits

    I've made it pretty clear before, during, and after the transition that certain cosmetic items would only be available for credits. This fits in line with our philosophy of earning power in the game. The slippery slope comments are a bit misguided in this regard.

    I know it is disappointing for some of you to be unable to do the world event content and earn these exclusive items - but I've never been shy about making it clear that we need to run a business here and make money to support the game. I strive to make sure that we are doing that in the most customer friendly fashion that I can.

    It is a fine line to walk - and we'll keep walking it and trying to stay on the path.

    I agree that pricing should adjust, as with any goods. I also think your store needs more stuff, but that will probably come along.

    Overall, I think you have done the best job I've seen so far with the "cash shop" in an FTP game - take that for what it's worth, but I'm 49, and been playing these games as long as there's been computers and the internet ;)

    I like your game generally, and you provide very good service on the tech/content/etc end.

    I wish you the best.

    Yes. The Swimsuits are dyable. I have the Teal and White one, except mine is colored black and red.
    Unfortunately, I can't get a screenie, because my external hard drive crapped out on me, and my laptop doesn't have the memory to run rift...
