    The price of the Euro has really changed relative to the US dollar. Moving forward we want to make sure we adjust more frequently for this sort of thing, so that when currencies go up or down they are more equivalent for all players (of course then we have to adjust the prices for VAT and everything, you have to talk to your governments about that).

    Came here to ask if the "+1 Character Slot" that is in "The Wilds Pack" allows me to go to 13 characters per shard. Looks like the answer is no. So I guess I'll just buy the ability to have a Primalist character by itself. The rest really isn't worth $99 (or what ever the delta will be).

    The value for us is the same... We don't earn more euros.

    So it will be less expansive to buy credit than a new pack. That's bad.

    That all depends on country. Unfortunately fixing the international monetary system is a bit beyond us*, so we need to settle for getting prices as even as possible excepting for taxation differences.

    *Even if we did try to fix it people would complain that we nerfed British pounds and it was a slap in the face. Darn devs and their lazy normalization!

    having a PTW pack in a F2P game of a genre as acronym filled as MMOs could result in some misunderstandings.

    Oy. ROFLOLOL!! I never even thought about that.... because I really never pay any attention to things like "pay to win". In fact, I had to ask what it meant (along with other things....) here a while back....

    3Has anyone actually confirmed that you do not get a 13th character slot?

    100 seems like a lot unless there is something you really wanted. For me the character slot would be the only real value to me but I am already at 12. I kinda like having the portraits but one day I will be silver tier and you have to use that even tho it is not even that good of a portrait (sad with how hard it is to get). The minion card would be the only other thing I would even be slightly interested in. Other than that unless you really wanted a dino mount you can just get the important stuff with credits.

    Maybe if they added an extra shared bank tab like they added an extra bag slot with the last expansion :P

    I think this is something that is causing some confusion, this isn't an expansion we had that with Nightmare Tide and 3.4 is part of that so we got that pack already - though I'd never say no to an extra wardrobe/bag/shard vault space lol and I think this is even more exciting than 3.0.

    "More money than sense" is an English idiom and used to suggest that whilst the person might have plenty of money they tend to waste a lot of it by spending it foolishly.

    This isn't me complaining that I can't afford the pack but rather that I just don't think this pack even vaguely approaches being value for money at this price point because there's so much in it that is purely useless fluff to me. I'm also reluctant to pay Trion for an extra calling / souls when they haven't even maintained the existing callings / souls, including ones we've paid them for in previous soul packs / expansions.

    Technically, I never called this an expansion nor implied that it was. I just mentioned the last expansion, which was NT where they gave us a bag slot.

    This is a 100 dollar pack, the last time they sold something for this amount of money was for the expansion. But even with the expansion this is still a free to play game so the expansion was still free. All the purchase packs back then were fluff as well for those people who wanted an edge since that was the only place to get a water mount at the time. Plus some gear upgrade stuff n such and the bag slot. It was just better fluff back then.

    I am usually the first person to shell out money for w/e digital junk they throw at us. This is the first time I have really been like... IDK... is this really worth it. I have all the old past mounts and costumes that never see the light of day. My OCD might want them but in actuality there is nothing I need from these packs or would regret not having. All it would do is keep me from having to spend my current credits on the souls.

    Edit: Unless there is a 13th character slot, then I would regret not having it. But unless I missed it I do not think a dev has said either way on that issue.
